Emma and Regina attempt to come up with a plan to stop the Evil Queen from wreaking any more havoc on the Oct. 13 episode of ‘Once Upon A Time.’ Plus, Zelena teams up with Belle to take down Rumple!
Snow is waiting by Charming’s side while he sleeps. She wonders if this is their forever. Regina feels extremely guilty and wants to fix things for Snow and Charming. Emma stops Regina, telling her that she can’t do anything that will get her killed. If anything happens to Emma and Regina, Henry will be left alone.
Snow realizes that something’s not right in Charming’s room. She notices the mirror and breaks it, knowing the Evil Queen is watching them. Snow and Charming are determined not to let this ruin them. They work out a system, and it works for a while. But this can’t go on forever.
Regina comes up with something to break Snow and Charming’s curse. She says maybe they can trap the Evil Queen in the World Behind The Mirror. They will need to use Henry as bait. At first, Emma refuses to go along with it, until Henry admits he needs a distraction from the fall formal and Violet.
Henry meets up with the Evil Queen, and the Evil Queen takes his bait. Regina is ready to trap the Evil Queen, but good ole EQ switched the mirrors! Ugh. The Evil Queen gets the upper hand once again and traps Regina and Emma!
Emma wakes up in the World Behind The Mirror, and it’s not the nicest place. It’s full of mirrors and she can’t use their magic. Regina quickly figures out that Henry is their only hope to get out. However, the Evil Queen is stirring up trouble in Storybrooke with Henry and the gang by impersonating Regina.
Belle needs help to protect her unborn child and goes to Zelena In order to help, Zelena has to have the Sorcerer’s Wand. They enlist Aladdin’s help to get it out from Rumple’s clutches. Aladdin goes to the shop and snags the Sorcerer’s Wand and the magic lamp! There’s also a really cute homage to Abu.
Hook realizes that something’s up with Emma. The silence from her is big red flag. He finds her phone and the broken mirror, but the Evil Queen shows up and knocks him out. Regina and Emma bang on the mirror at Granny’s Diner while Henry’s in the bathroom. He hears something, but the Evil Queen shows up as Regina before he can put the pieces together. Regina and Emma are forced to watch the Evil Queen stir up drama with Henry. Thankfully, Henry is one smart cookie. He figures out Regina is not Regina. He’s able to get Violet to help him get out of the Evil Queen’s grasps.
Slaying The Dragon
Emma and Regina aren’t alone in the World Behind the Mirror. The Dragon is there, too! He was banished by the Evil Queen. He knows of a way to get them out of there. There’s a portal, all they have to do is put a mirror back together. Because the Evil Queen always has a plan A, B, and C, she takes The Dragon’s heart and makes him transform into an actual dragon. She commands The Dragon to kill Emma and Regina. She tells Henry that he can save his moms by smashing The Dragon’s heart. “Darkening my heart won’t make me yours,” Henry tells the Evil Queen.
Regina and Emma work together to try and not get fried. Henry cracks the mirror, and The Dragon breaks the mirror with his ball of fire. Regina and Emma find themselves back in Storybrooke. The Evil Queen accuses Regina and Emma of making Henry week. Before she can hurt anyone else, Hook grabs her. She disappears without a trace.
A Deadly Proposition
Henry finally gets some alone time with Violet at Granny’s. He thought she was getting bored with him and that’s why she had been so distance. She admits she’s been having a hard time adjusting. They end their night dancing in the diner, with Emma and Regina watching proudly from the outside.
Belle and Zelena are planning their next move when Rumple pops in and takes back the Sorcerer’s Wand. He puts the magic cuff on Belle so she can never escape him. He finally goes way too far with Belle and Zelena. He grabs Zelena by the throat, but she gives him a mini heart attack. Apparently whenever he tries to hurt Zelena, he’s only hurting himself. I love Zelena.
Rumple heads back to his shop to lick his wounds and the Evil Queen stops in. They share a steamy kiss and agree to be on the same team — for now. There’s one specific thing he wants the Evil Queen to do for him, and that’s kill Zelena!!!
