Cinderella’s Step-family is in Storybrooke, and she plans to get her revenge! Elsewhere, Regina tries to get information from Hyde about The Evil Queen’s plans. Get a sneak peek of tonight’s Once Upon a Time!
Well Oncers, we knew that, with all the new arrivals from the Land of Untold Stories, there was bound to be danger lurking.
And in last week’s episode (“A Bitter Draught“), the Count of Monte Cristo made things very difficult for the Heroes, especially Snow and Charming!
Perhaps it shouldn’t have surprised us that Regina/The Evil Queen would have ties to other potentially shady characters, like the Count and like Jafar (how else would she get venom from an Agrabhan viper?!).
But I think what was most interesting is that The Evil Queen was actually calling the shots by controlling the Count with his heart and using him to kill Snow and Charming. Ultimately what she wanted was to draw out Regina’s dark, killer instinct, even if it was in defense of her friends.
So when Emma saw in her premonitions that a hooded figure is going to kill her, it might *actually* be Regina. And that is a scary and sad thought!
Tonight we’ll meet some more familiar characters from the Land of Untold Stories, this time there’s a link to Cinderella!
In “The Other Shoe” (written by Jane Espenson and Jerome Schwartz, directed by Steve Pearlman):
CINDERELLA HAS A SCORE TO SETTLE WITH HER STEP-FAMILY, EMMA CONSIDERS TAKING HER RELATIONSHIP WITH HOOK TO THE NEXT LEVEL AND HYDE GAINS AN ALLY—As Storybrooke continues to welcome the new arrivals from the Land of Untold Stories, families, friends and even long-lost enemies are reunited once again. When Ashley (Cinderella) searches for her step-family, intent on settling their unfinished business, Emma, Hook and Henry scramble to help her before it’s too late. Meanwhile, Regina attempts to bribe Mr. Hyde for information about how to defeat the Evil Queen and Snow helps Dr. Jekyll find a suitable laboratory for his work. David makes a deal with Gold and delivers a message to Belle in exchange for new information about his father. In flashback, Cinderella attends a ball and meets her prince. (via ABC)
Interesting! So that explains why Cinderella is carrying a gun in the trailer for the upcoming episode. Yep, things are about to get real dicey. I’m also super curious about the secret surrounding the death of David’s father…
Watch these two clips from tonight’s show. In the first, there’s a flashback to Ella’s time with her Step-mother and Step-sisters. As expected, they are so MEAN. And in the second video, Regina, Snow, and Charming go to Hyde for information about how The Evil Queen is still alive.

“It’s hard to try to stay one step ahead of yourself…”
Isn’t that the truth! But why in the world does Hyde have so much information, anyway?
Also, I just need to say that I don’t blame Ella for wanting revenge against her Step-family!
