The return of "Once Upon a Time" season 3 will not hit television screens for another month, but there have been plenty of spoilers, hints and theories. On Feb. 9, Hollywood Hills reported that ABC has released the official synopsis for the second half of the season.

The synopsis reads,

"All is not well back in the Enchanted Forest when Hook comes calling on Emma in New York City in an attempt to jog her memory so that she can once again help her fairy tale family and friends out of a desperate situation. Everyone she holds dear is in danger as a new foe emerges — the Wicked Witch of the West (Rebecca Mader, "Lost"). Hook now must enlist Emma in an epic struggle that spans worlds: with the highest stakes possible — the fate of her family. No one remembers how they were transported back or the past year they had spent back in Fairy Tale Land. But someone in town is responsible for this curse, and all clues point to the Wicked Witch of the West, whose agenda in our world is a mystery. In an attempt to break the curse, new fairytale characters will be revealed and old acquaintances will be revisited. But not everyone can be trusted."

Fans already knew from sneak peeks that Hook would try to get Emma to remember and that the newest villain is the Wicked Witch. However, there is some new information in the synopsis, like nobody knowing how they returned to Storybrooke. Fans have speculated that there was some sort of loophole that reversed Peter Pan's curse, but it says that new characters will appear and old ones will return in order to try to break the curse. So the curse is still active, but this still leaves the question of how Storybrooke returned and how the fairy tale characters came back to it. Hopefully viewers will find out what happened as the season progresses.

"Once Upon a Time" season 3 will return on March 9.
