Former soap star Rena Sofer will be joining "Once Upon A Time" bring Bailee Madison along with her (TV Guide, Jan 9). Bailee will be returning to her role as young Snow to Sofer's Queen Eva. Not much has been said about Eva or the flashbacks that we will see, but we do know that she has a surprising connection to someone we know.
Edward Kitsis told TV Guide that we will see flashbacks of other lands, common consensus is we will be following the yellow brick road, maybe meet a wicked witch or two in OZ and quite possibly there will be a trip to Never Never Land. Kitsis also mentions "We're going to show you some things in our world that you didn't even think were an option."
In the next episode to air (The Outsider) Belle will be getting her 'warrior' on when she must help save Mulan's village against a scary little thing called "Yaoguai". We will also see the Storybrooke residents bury Archie, well who they think is Archie. Grumpy is going to be a bit, well...grumpy. He is missing Fairytale Land and thinks they should go home.
