This Sunday’s ‘Once Upon a Time’ delivers another action-packed hour in which our heroes fight for their loved ones in a Fairytale Land flashback and in present-day Neverland. In these parallel stories, Snow White and Emma have to make decisions that will greatly impact the course of their futures. In the past, the Evil Queen gives Snow White an ultimatum: step down from the throne and live in peace with Charming or keep fighting for her kingdom. In Neverland, Peter Pan gives Emma a giant clue as to where Henry is being held captive, but there’s a catch: to find Henry, Emma must first find her true self and come to terms with her magical mojo. Watch Emma’s reaction in this sneak peek of Peter Pan’s surprising offer.
Here is ABC’s official description for “Lost Girl”:
“Lost Girl” – While Emma, Mary Margaret, David, Regina and Hook continue their search for Henry in Neverland, Peter Pan appears before a startled Emma and offers her a map that will reveal her son’s whereabouts. But the only way to make the map appear is for Emma to stop denying who she really is and come to grips with her true feelings about her identity – and Mr. Gold receives some unexpected advice from a friend that could lead him to understand his life’s journey while in Neverland. Meanwhile, in the Fairy Tale Land that was, when the Evil Queen presents Snow White with an offer to live her life with Charming in peace – with the caveat that she give up her claim to the throne – Charming makes it his mission to ensure that Snow doesn’t take the offer, on “Once Upon a Time,” SUNDAY, OCTOBER 6 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

The slideshow images reveal an ambush in the past and present. In the Fairytale Land past, the Charmings and the Seven Dwarves fight off the Evil Queen when she barges into their village. We get to see Snow White spring into full-swing action as she puts Regina in an uncompromising position. Meanwhile in Neverland, the Lost Boys ambush David, Mary Margaret, Regina, Hook and Emma. They’ll have to work together and use all of their strengths to fight off the dangerous gang of teenagers.

Although we don’t see Rumple in any of the images, this promo for “Lost Girl” will get RumBelle fans very excited. We are not quite sure how, but Belle seems to be the “friend” that chats with Rumple. If anyone is going to set Rumpy on the right track, it is definitely Belle. He came to Neverland knowing that Henry will be his undoing, just as the seer prophesized years ago. But who says Rumple’s undoing has to be a bad thing? Maybe this journey will actually lead to the Dark One’s demise. If Rumple can shed his evil alter-ego, then he can have a fresh start as a genuinely good guy. We’ve seen the potential for good in Rumple all along and Belle has always been able to bring out the best in him. Neverland could be the place that forces our heroes to face their true selves. Emma needs to embrace the magic within, while Rumple needs to let go of his sordid past and become the great man that Bae and Henry know he can be.
Show-runners, Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis tell TVLine that Rumple may need to overcome some daddy issues in order to start moving on. Matt Webb Mitovich reports:
DOES RUMPLESTILTSKIN HAVE DADDY ISSUES? | And how, as indicated when Lost Boy Felix whipped out a straw doll that obviously had great meaning to The Dark One, leaving him in tears. “We’ve hinted in the past that his father was a coward, and that his father’s name was something that haunted him,” Kitsis reminds. “This is a man who wants to break the cycle of his past and be a good father, but you know the quote: ‘I can resist everything but temptation.’” Episode 4, “Nasty Habits,” will explore this further.
What do you think Oncers? Will Emma be able to embrace her true identity and read the map by the end of “Lost Girl”?
