Something wicked this way comes! A much-maligned villain is returning to ‘Once Upon a Time,’ and, depending on your preference, you may or may not be happy about it!
Here we go again! Once Upon a Time will return from its winter hiatus on Mar. 1, and a familiar face will mark the occasion. We can confirm that, on an upcoming episode of the ABC series, a certain cackling villain will reprise her evil role (for what is not the first time). Still can’t guess who it is? We’ve got the details for you!
‘Once Upon a Time’ Villain — Zelena, The Wicked Witch Returns
Zelena is back!
In yet another return to Once, the Wicked Witch of the West (Rebecca Mader) will again bring trouble to the series when it returns from its winter hiatus on Mar. 1. While the series is staying pretty mum on other details about Zelena’s return, we know that she will appear in at least one upcoming episode during the latter half of the series’ fourth season.
Um, we’re going to need a little more than that!
Evil Comes To ‘Once Upon A Time’
As fans of the fairy tale series will recall, Rumpel (Robert Carlyle) killed Zelena via a dagger towards the end of last season. So how will the green-skinned witch be resurrected?
Flashbacks, of course!
However, we have to wonder: because it hasn’t been specified as to how far back we’re flashing here, will Zelena’s past be depicted prior to or post her greenification (which also marked her turn to the dark side)?
The remainder of the season could truly go any which direction, following the Frozen arc which concluded during the winter finale. Along with bidding good bye to Ana and Elsa, we were also introduced to three new villains (though, if you’re at all familiar with fairytales, they’re actually not new at all). The Little Mermaid‘s Ursula (Merrin Dungey), Maleficent (Kristin Bauer) and Cruella de Vil (Victoria Smurfit) will all be on hand when the series returns to spread evil and despair.
Can’t wait, obviously.
Are you guys excited to see Zelena return to Once Upon a Time?
