The Enchanted Forest may not have seen the last of the Queen of Hearts. On Saturday, January 25 Entertainment Weekly broke the news that actress Rose McGowan would be returning to the role as Cora on the popular ABC fairytale drama "Once Upon a Time" during at least one episode of the third season.
McGowan first appeared on the series in the episode "The Miller's Daughter" as the younger version of Cora in an origin story which also explained her death. The series is known for flashbacks that explain more about its fairytale characters which helps viewers understand events happening in the present. Young Cora is expected to appear in the upcoming eighteenth episode of season three which is scheduled to air in April.
McGowan is known for her role as Paige in the supernatural television series "Charmed" and Ann-Margret in the CBS series "Elvis" about the iconic singer. She also appeared in films like "Scream," "Grindhouse," and "The Black Dahlia."
It's possible that Cora could have a history with the Wicked Witch, who will be the new villain for the rest of the third season after the demise of Peter Pan. Since Cora, played by actress Barbara Hershey, is no longer alive after being killed by Mr. Gold, more of her backstory about her teachings of magic will need to be explored. The Evil Queen and the Wicked Witch are going to face off as magic fights evil.
The third season of "Once Upon a Time" will return with new episodes on Sunday, March 9 at 8 p.m. on ABC. The Wicked Witch, a familiar face in the fantasy world that the series is putting their own spin on, will be introduced in the twelfth episode entitled "New York City Serenade."
