Emerald City - Lions in Winter

As Oz prepares for war allegiances continue to shift. Now a prisoner of Glinda (Joely Richardson), Dorothy (Adria Arjona) struggles with the truth about Lucas (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) now revealed to be Glinda's (Joely Richardson) husband Rowan. Glinda can see her husband is conflicted, and urges Rowan to take the only possible step to end his feelings for Dorothy - by killing her. It appears Lucas/Rowan will need to choose between the love he remembers and the new feelings which he can't seem to reconcile with Glinda and their life together.

Finally understanding who she is and why she was hidden for years from the world, Tip (Jordan Loughran) undertakes a risky proposition from West (Ana Ularu) that will likely change both women's roles in the series beginning next week. Tip's rebirth, as it is, also helps clue us in to the identity of another important figure in the series as Eamonn (Mido Hamada) is revealed to the Lion. The subplot involving Jack (Gerran Howell) and Lady Ev (Stefanie Martini) proves to be little more than filler, but another example of the new Queen's flight of fancy may have very real consequences for the Wizard (Vincent D'Onofrio).
