Merlin asks David, Hook and Belle to help him on a little quest in this week’s ONCE UPON A TIME. In a Camelot flashback, he recruits the heroes to help get Lancelot out of prison. The group finds Meridaw while in the dungeons and they free her as well. This chance encounter gives Merida hope that she can save her brothers. But she’s not willing to leave things to fate, so she brings Belle along to help her on her journey.
In present day Storybrooke, Regina, Mary Margaret and David discover a spell that would allow one of Merlin’s chosen to communicate with him. They select Arthur, but when he fails at the task they start getting suspicious.
Meanwhile, Emma orders Merida to kill Belle in hopes of forcing Gold’s transformation into a hero. Since Merida is unable to refuse Emma’s orders, Gold must find the power within himself to fight for the woman he loves.
