Once Upon a Time - Fall

In the final day before the Snow Queen's (Elizabeth Mitchell) spell of Shattered Sight descends on Storybrooke the residents prepare for the worst. Realizing Anna's (Elizabeth Lail) previous exposure to the spell might hold the key to breaking the curse, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) redoubles her efforts into helping Elsa (Georgina Haig) find her sister. By the end of the episode the sisters will indeed be reunited while flashbacks offer a look back at Anna's unusual journey to Storybrooke.

Working his own machinations behind the scenes, Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle) barters a new deal with the Snow Queen for the lives of Belle (Emilie de Ravin) and Henry (Jared Gilmore) while sending Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) to sabotage the city's last best hope to stop the curse from taking hold. The results doom the citizens of the the town to the effects of the spell forcing the worst versions of each character to the surface.

Next week's episode should not only give us Regina (Lana Parrilla) back in full Evil Queen mode but also a look into far darker versions of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) than we've seen before. With all but Elsa, Anna, and herself immune to the curse it will be up the Savior to once again set things right (and quickly before the town tears itself apart).
