At the end of the season premiere of ONCE UPON A TIME, we saw the Charmings and their allies walk into Camelot with King Arthur. Six weeks later, they returned home to Storybrooke (with no memory of what had transpired since they walked through the majestic gates) and the surprise of a lifetime: Emma had fulled embraced her darkness.
What happened during those six weeks? It looks like that’s the mystery the show will unravel over the next several months and that will begin with the next episode, titled “The Price”. Here’s what ABC hints is to come: “In an effort to protect Emma, Regina steps up in a surprising way that will test her mettle as a force for good. King Arthur and Queen Guinevere throw a royal ball to welcome the heroes to Camelot, but when the celebration takes a deadly turn, David and Robin must leap into action or lose a crucial asset in the fight to save Emma. Back in Storybrooke, Hook deploys a tried-and-true technique in hopes of bringing Emma back to the light while the heroes discover that some unexpected baggage has followed them home from Camelot.”
Watch a sneak peek below and don’t miss this all new episode of ONCE UPON A TIME on October 4 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
