On Sep. 11 Wetpaint shares a spoiler photo released by ABC after Emma Swan falls overboard of the Jolly Roger. While many "Once Upon a Time" fans are surprised to see Hook and Regina working just as hard as Snow White to help Emma back onto the ship, someone is missing from the rescue.
Fans thought that the fairy-tale gang was headed to Neverland to save Henry from the clutches of Peter Pan, Owen, and Tamara it seems as if Emma is going to need saving first. Until the episode airs, we likely won't know how Emma went overboard or why, but many are suspecting that it involved some nasty mermaids doing the bidding of one Rumpelstiltskin.
In the photo, Regina, Hook, and Snow work at keeping the rope steady that is tied around Prince Charming as he is lowered to the water to rescue his daughter. Rumpel is nowhere to be found. Many aren't surprised as he doesn't seem to care for Emma or his grandson, Henry, but would he push her overboard?
Now the question in mind is, "where is Rumpelstiltskin?" Did he leave the ship? Is he below deck preparing for his inevitable fight with Peter Pan? Did he really push Emma overboard?
"Once Upon a Time" returns to TV Sep. 29. Be sure to tune in to find out.
