Belle gets help from Emma and Killian to stop Rumple; meanwhile, Rumple attempts to convince the Evil Queen to kill Zelena. Get a sneak peek of tonight’s Once upon a Time!
Oncers, we need to talk about how heartbreaking the last Once Upon a Time episode was! It was painful to watch Snow and Charming live separate lives as they shared the Evil Queen’s sleeping curse. I mean they had the routine down and left such sweet messages for one another. But still…
This got even more frustrating when Emma, Regina, and Henry’s plan to trap EQ in the enchanted mirror backfired. While Emma and Regina were trapped in the mirror, they were able to see the Dragon (who was also trapped). But they soon learn that Evil Queen is controlling the Dragon too (he turned into an *actual* dragon)!
Meanwhile, EQ took on Regina’s persona to try and turn Henry dark. He was eventually able to learn the truth about his mothers (yes, multiple!), but things were still complicated. In order to free Emma and Regina, EQ claimed that Henry kill the Dragon and darken his heart. Ultimately, Henry destroyed the mirror instead, and Killian just in time to subdue the Evil Queen!
In other developments, I love seeing Henry’s relationship with Killian get stronger. They really like each other!
Also, Rumple is so far gone, I legitimately fear for Belle and this baby. It is interesting that any time he hurts Zelena, he hurts himself. Smart lady! But of course Rumple will find a loop hole, and this time, it’s Evil Queen.
In tonight’s episode “Changelings” (written by David H. Goodman and Brian Ridings, directed by Mairzee Almas):
THE REASON FOR RUMPLE’S HATRED OF FAIRIES IS REVEALED, AND THE EVIL QUEEN FACES OFF AGAINST ZELENA—In a Fairy Tale Land flashback, Rumple collects Jack and Jill’s son as bait to lure a powerful being to him. Back in Storybrooke, Gold tells the Evil Queen that she must kill Zelena, and the EQ makes a decision that will change her relationship with her sister forever. When Belle discovers Gold’s plans for their son, she convinces Hook and Emma to help her steal squid ink that can immobilize him, and, as a result, Belle is left to make a sacrifice that will affect the lives of everyone in Storybrooke. Meanwhile, Jasmine finds a genie-less lamp that she hopes to use to save Agrabah, and Aladdin finds a way to be her hero. (via ABC)
Watch these two clips from the upcoming show for a sneak peek. In the first, we’re back in Fairy Tale Land and Beast/Rumple brings a baby home for Belle to care for. She is *clearly* scandalized. And in the present, Rumple promises Evil Queen a romantic relationship if she kills Zelena:

Past and present, Rumple has lost his mind. But Belle will do whatever it takes to protect an innocent child.
EQ does ask an interesting question about Rumple’s hatred of fairies.
