During the episode, not only will we see Regina in a quest for vengeance against Mary Margaret, but Henry conjures up a plan of his own to put an end to the magic that he feels has caused nothing but trouble. We also finally get to see where it all began in Storybrooke after the curse A father-son duo manage to wander into the town, which is supposed to be completely off the map. Jamie Dornan will also reprise his role as Sheriff Graham.
"OUaT" cast and producers have also been talking about what's to come. Edward Kitsis teased fans at Paleyfest: “We’re going to see the first week of the curse. We’re going to get more insight into what it was like that first week in 1983, and what it was like for the Evil Queen to win.”
Ginnifer Goodwin also talked about what is in store for Mary Margaret, especially the results of setting Cora’s death in motion. She says: “Things are [heating up], for sure,” said Goodwin. “The end of the season is coming, and I predict explosions. I have not read the last episodes … but I feel like ‘the Shiite has to hit the fan’ with this many obstacles piling one on top of the other.”
Lana Parrilla had this to say about Regina: ” she has two reasons to hate Snow White. The first one was because she broke a promise and Danny was killed because of it. And now, she has a hand in her mother’s death. So this is just devastating for Regina on so many levels. I think that road to redemption is now far behind her.”
As for Mr. Gold and his love Belle, Robert Carlyle says that there is hope for the couple. Mr. Gold will tell Belle: ‘I’m going to do everything in my power to bring you back for your sake and for mine.’”
