Since the Wicked Witch first appeared, we knew it wouldn’t be long until Glinda turned up on “Once Upon a Time” too. Her arrival is imminent, in the next episode, 3x19, “A Curious Thing” as a matter of fact. Wetpaint shared the dope on April 22. Besides meeting the Good Witch of the South, we’ll also be finding out who cast the spell that sent all the Fairy Tale Land folks back to Storybrooke without their memories of the last year.
Zelena is growing impatient and wants Hook to plant that kiss on Emma, the one that will strip her of her immense powers. Since he is reluctant to comply, she tries to motivate him by threatening to kill Henry, the boy who has no memory of his relationship to the Storybrooke folks and has no clue what’s happening.
Back in Fairy Tale Land during the lost year, Prince Charming and Snow White try to find Glinda. They need her help defeating Zelena. When they find her, she tells them her powers aren’t sufficient to beat the Wicked Witch.
Here’s the official synopsis for the episode:
“Zelena threatens to kill Henry if Hook — whose lips have been cursed by the Wicked Witch — doesn't proceed with kissing Emma, which will drain all of her magical powers away, and things begin to heat up between Regina and Robin Hood. Meanwhile, back in the Fairy Tale Land that was during the past year, Snow and Charming go in search of Glinda, the Good Witch of the South, to see if she can help them defeat Zelena, and the curse that will ultimately send the Fairy Tale characters back to Storybrooke is cast — but from an unlikely source.”
Interesting but we want to know more. In reviewing the official preview we have gleaned a few more details. For instance, during the lost year, Aurora warns Charming and Snow that the witch is after their baby. There is a brief look at a run in between Snow and Zelena, too. There’s a glimpse of fire-filled doorway which can’t be good no matter which land it happens in. A flying monkey attacks Hook, Smee and Henry. Maybe that’s how Zelena gets her hands on Henry. We bet Henry’s pretty confused and upset by this whole flying monkey thing. Another snippet shows Charming collapsing as someone who looks like Snow seems to be casting a spell.
