Warning: If you do not want to know "Once Upon a Time" season 3 spoilers, then stop reading.
When the mid-season finale aired, Peter Pan succeeded in destroying Storybrooke and all of the characters were supposedly sent back to their own worlds. Before that happened, Regina cast a spell on Henry and Emma changing their memories to happy ones. A sneak peek video revealed that Storybrooke might not be gone after all or there will be some sort of loophole that reverses the spell. The Wicked Witch is seen walking down a highway and the sign on the side of the road shows she is walking towards Storybrooke. Set photographs and other sneak peek videos have also shown glimpses of what appears to be the town.
The Wicked Witch will make her debut on the mid-season premiere and it turns out that she has connections to not one, but two characters. Fans will discover what caused her to turn green and at some point will also meet the Wizard. Viewers have been debating on what The Wicked Witch wants and while that has been kept under wraps, Horowitz did tweet that the title to episode 16 is "It Isn't Easy Being Green." WetPaint is speculating that the title means The Wicked Witch has some good underneath her bad self and that her story may trigger some sympathy from fans. As for what she wants, it must have something to do with Regina aka Evil Queen because Kitsis said,
"We're setting up the fight of all fights: Evil Queen versus Wicked Witch!"
It is no secret that Ginnifer Goodwin is pregnant and while some shows work around pregnant stars, "Once Upon a Time" will not be doing that. The pregnancy is written in to the show and viewers will find out that Snow White and Charming are expecting on the March 9 episode. The baby will apparently have a connection to the impending progeny of Sleeping Beauty and Prince Phillip. But fans shouldn't worry, the producers have promised that there will not be a soap opera type baby switch.
Emma is going to meet a mysterious stranger in New York City, who will be played by Christopher Gorham of "Covert Affairs." Previous spoilers have revealed that Hook will continue to try to jog Emma's memory, she will bail him out of jail because of the connection she feels for him and eventually she, Henry and Hook will take a road trip together. One sneak peek showed Emma holding something in her hand, saying "it's not possible."
There is also going to be a wedding on the season finale, but who could be tying the knot? Fans and the media have a few speculations such as Belle and Rumple, Emma and Hook or perhaps Regina and Robin Hood.
Charming will also save Rapunzel from the tower, Belle will meet Lumiere and it is being speculated that Little Red might return since actress Meghan Ory has finished filming "Intelligence."
"Once Upon a Time" returns on March 9.
