Sunday night fans watched the all new episode of "Once Upon A Time" on ABC and the plot thickened as Cora focused all her efforts on severing all ties "good" Regina had with the townspeople of Storybrooke. As the episode rounded to a close it looked like she was successful in breaking down Regina in an effort to make her bad again - but we all know things in Storybrooke are never what they seem. We thought Cricket was dead and yet he lives to chirp the town secrets to Hook in order to give him a hand up for his battle with Gold - which looks like it will begin next week. Spoiler TV released new photos of next week's episode Jan. 8, 2013 - which you can look at in the slideshow above.
We also saw a little of Belle in Sunday night's episode but next week we will see much more as Belle is involved in two battles, the one to save Gold's soul - if that is possible, and the one with Mulan in fairy tale land (photos and spoilers of this can be viewed here).
Fans knew since Belle came to the scene her primary goal was to keep Gold in line and perhaps make him a better man, and the slideshow photos above make that pretty clear. As she is holding a gun in one photo and a garment in many more while Gold gets the upper hand on Hook.
