So far "Once Upon a Time" season 3 has revealed information about the Wicked Witch quickly, moving the story forward. Co-creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis know that if a storyline drags on too slowly and too long, viewers will get bored. On the last episode of "OUAT," Zelena's backstory was revealed and while she is still the villain, some fans can't help but feel a little bad about what happened to her. So what is going to happen with the Wicked Witch and the other characters next? On April 7, WetPaint revealed some spoilers for "Once Upon a Time" season 3, episode 17, titled "The Jolly Roger."

Warning: If you do not want to know "OUAT" season 3 spoilers, then stop reading.

Now that fans know Zelena's backstory, it is time to focus a bit on the other characters of the fairy tale series. "The Jolly Roger" episode is going to concentrate a bit on Hook. A promo clip shows him asking Emma why she came to seek him out and him telling her that they can't pretend like it never happened. It will be interesting to find out what he is talking about, but the video does show him spying on Emma.

During the mid-season break, spoiler reports stated that Blackbeard would be appearing in the second half and he will finally make his debut on the upcoming episode. A flashback shows Hook's life as a pirate, including a duel with Blackbeard.

It was hinted that Ariel would also be showing up this season and indeed, she does return. This time she says,

"My name's Ariel and you're going to pay for what you've done."

It seems that she is speaking to Hook, but the editing of the promo clip may be making fans think that when she could be talking to someone else.

Zelena, the Wicked Witch, is going to tell Hook,

"You're out of your depth."

The end of the promo for "The Jolly Roger" shows Hook on the ground, but it is unclear who put him there. Did Zelena attack him or was it Blackbeard? Or perhaps Ariel was threatening him?

Fans are going to have to wait until April 13 when "Once Upon a Time" season 3, episode 17 airs.
