Last week, "Once Upon a Time" took a break for the Oscars so that nothing would compete. This week, ABC will be airing an all new episode called "The Queen is Dead." On Feb. 26 TV Over Mind reports that it will be partially a flashback episode in which Snow White's mother, Queen Eva, is still alive. Everyone knows that Eva dies, but they don't know that there are some mysterious dealings around her death.
There will be a guest appearance in this episode of Johanna played my Leslie Nichols who was Eva's maid. A person that Snow White was very close to until Eva died. They had such a close relationship that when Mary Margaret discovers that Johanna made it to Storybrooke, she is overjoyed to see her.
Unfortunately, their happy reunite is ended when Mary Margaret hears a suspicious noise close to the woods and discovers Cora and Regina trying to find Rumpelstiltskin's dagger. Obviously, she can't allow this because it could mean very bad things happening in Storybrooke and possibly Fairytale Land.
With Gold still in New York with Emma, Henry, and Neal, Cora and Regina getting their hands on that dagger could be even more detrimental. Will this be the episode that leads Cora and Regina to the dagger? Will Mary Margaret and Johanna be able to stop them?
