Snow and Charming try to make their most of their new predicament with the curse; meanwhile, Regina and Emma work to outsmart the Evil Queen. Get a sneak peek of tonight’s Once Upon a Time!
Oncers, last week (“Heartless“) we learned a lot about the Charmings!
Who knew that Snow and David met prior to their confrontation in the Enchanted Forrest where she stole his mother’s ring?!
The Woodcutter almost succeeded in killing Snow and David, but together they were able to overcome him… and they did it without ever seeing each other’s face. Snow was locked away in the Woodcutter’s wagon and, to protect David, she didn’t allow him to see her face and learn her identity so the Evil Queen wouldn’t come after him for information. But as David passed Snow the key to unlock herself from the wagon when he left, their hands brushed and the spark of true love was the initial seed of a magical sapling.
And in the present, that sapling was needed to help save the town from the Evil Queen’s plan to use water from the River of Lost Souls to destroy everyone, unless Snow and Charming gave her their heart.
In the end, the Evil Queen destroyed the sapling and Snow and Charming (with their infinite faith in one another and Emma) decided to give over their hear. But EQ had another thing coming. She places a sleeping curse on both parts of the heart. Yes, true love’s kiss would break the curse, but since Snow and Charming share a heart, they share the curse. When one is awake, the other will sleep.
I have to say though, the Snow/Charming feels were rivaled the CaptainSwan swoons, courtesy of Killian. When Emma needed encouragement about being able to save the town and her parents, he was right there:

“True love can break any curse and so can you because that’s what you’re made of.”
*CRIES*SWOONS* Story time with Killian will ALWAYS be the best!
And tonight, the Heroes are going to need all the strength they can muster to beat the Evil Queen.
In “I’ll Be Your Mirror (written by Jerome Schwartz and Leah Fong, directed by Jennifer Lynch):
EMMA AND REGINA PLAN TO TRAP THE EVIL QUEEN IN A PRISON OF THEIR OWN MAKING, AND HENRY GETS SOME MOTHERLY ADVICE THAT COULD END UP DARKENING HIS HEART—Emma and Regina formulate a plan to trap the Evil Queen in a prison of their own making, while Snow and David adjust to life without each other. As Henry nervously prepares to take Violet to the school dance, the Evil Queen impersonates Regina to give him some advice that could lead him down a dark path. Meanwhile, Zelena agrees to help Belle, and together they enlist Aladdin to steal a magical object from Mr. Gold that could protect Belle and her unborn child from him forever. (via ABC)
Watch these two clips from the upcoming show. In the first we see a montage of Snow and Charming’s days spent apart, as they try to have some sort of normalcy. And in the second video, Henry confronts the Evil Queen about the sleeping curse… which happens to be a trap!

I feel so bad for Snow and Charming… but it’s true. If anyone could overcome this, it’s them. Also, what’s this about EQ trapping Emma and Regina in a mirror. YIKES!
