The "Once Upon a Time" mid-season finale was shocking and it did not end the way that viewers thought it would. Now the fairy tale series will not return until March, so fans will have a few months to wait before finding out what will happen next. On Dec. 19, Latino Post revealed spoilers for season 3, episode 12.

Emma and Henry have no memory of Storybrooke or any of the characters. Before they left, Regina made it so her son and his biological mother had only pleasant memories. As Emma was cooking breakfast Hook knocked on the door, but of course she has no clue who he is.
Season 3, episode 12 is titled "New York City Serenade" and Hook will do his best to try to get Emma to remember her parents. But will he be successful? Regina did cast a spell to change their memories so it might not be easily broken. But of course, where there is a will, there is a way.
Rumple ended up killing both himself and Peter Pan, but unfortunately, the curse over Storybrooke couldn't be reversed. But "Once Upon a Time" creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis teased that Rumple may not be as dead as viewers think he is. In fairy tale land, anything is possible. Horowitz told TV Line,
"To the Rumbellers out there, we hope that you enjoy what we have in store. In the second half of the season, they are going to be in the same world for an extended period of time."
"The second half of the season will further explore their relationship - in whatever state that is."
Since the curse erased Storybrooke and sent the characters back to fairy tale land, could it be that Rumple and Pan are alive? Maybe dying in Storybrooke isn't permanent because it occurred when the curse was sweeping across the town?
In any case, there will be a new villain and it was revealed that the character will be the Wicked Witch of the East, to be played by Rebecca Mader.
TV Line also reported that there will be an "uppity know-it-all" servant named Lawrence who will appear in episode 15, which is being described as a "Belle-centric" episode. Some fans are predicting that the character sounds like The Candlestick from "The Beauty and the Beast."
"Once Upon a Time" season 3 will return on March 9.
