ONCE UPON A TIME Teasers: New Roommates, Mysterious Side Effects and Another Savior


The sixth season of ONCE UPON A TIME is nearly here and in addition to the spoilers dropped at the Comic Con panel and press room, ABC has dished out a few more teasers about the season as a whole and the premiere specifically.

Here’s a few teasers about what’s to come:

  • The Evil Queen is a big villain for season 6. According to ABC, “the Evil Queen is back and ready to leave a trail of destruction in her wake.” Meanwhile, Regina will learn that destroying her dark side won’t be that easy.
  • Emma will learn a life-altering secret “that could have serious consequences for her family and loved ones”.
  • Henry welcomes the new arrivals from the Land of Untold Stories by pledging to help them complete their tales. But when Snow White, Prince Charming, Regina, Captain Hook and Zelena become entwined in these untold tales, they find themselves haunted by their own unfinished pasts.
  • In the season premiere episode, “The Savior,” as our heroes set out to stop Hyde, Emma develops a mysterious side effect, and Storybrooke becomes a haven for refugees from the Land of Untold Stories.
  • Regina and Zelena embrace their newfound sisterhood by becoming roommates in the premiere.
  • Rumple continues to try and free Belle from the Sleeping Curse with “the help of a stranger”.
  • In the premiere flashbacks, “Jafar confronts an afflicted Aladdin in Agrabah, and a secret about the Savior is revealed”.
  • In addition to meeting Aladdin (Deniz Akdeniz) — a former Savior who may be able to offer Emma just the help she needs, — and Jafar (Oded Fehr), we’ll also see Princess Jasmine (Karin David), the Count of Monte Cristo (Craig Horner) and Morpheus (Giles Matthey).
