Henry, Emma and their loved ones gained and lost in the last episode of ONCE UPON A TIME. They lost the Hades pages from the storybook (which means they don’t know his weaknesses or how to defeat him). But Henry found his Author’s pen again, which means he can write Hades’ story and — possibly — discover what was on the missing pages. This week, the group will continue to search for a way to free everyone from the Underworld.
Hades, meanwhile, still has Mr. Gold over a barrel. He’ll be blackmailing him into creating a portal to Storybrooke, which transports Belle, Zelena and Robin Hood’s baby to the Underworld. Zelena and Regina will reunite, but the sisters get into a sibling squabble. And Belle is also reunited with Gold, but she learns some “shocking news that will change her life forever,” according to ABC. Does that mean she learns about the pregnancy?
In flashbacks to the land of Oz, Hades learns about Zelena’s attempts to create a time travel spell and visits her with the intention of striking an alliance between the pair. But the network hints that Hades “finds himself with more than just a partner in crime”. Will we learn the truth of Hades and Zelena’s relationship and how she plays into his story?
