I’m trying to remember this place, it’s like I woke up in some strange land.
There is a town in Maine...

HelenaKirstine: Anything, anything at all on Once Upon a Time. Please!
Prepare for Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) flashbacks! We’ll be seeing Snow when she was 12, innocent enough to believe everyone is capable of the same kindness she and her father possess. Any casting suggestions?
Nicole: Anything on Once Upon a Time?
Giancarlo Esposito wants you to go home right now and make sure your DVR is set to record next week’s Once Upon a Time. And you’d better listen to him. “I have a great storyline coming up,” he tells us. “Next week you’re going to see some fireworks between Sidney and the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla).” Something tells us these fireworks won’t be the good kind, like the ones Katy Perry sings to us about.
Mary Margaret and Leroy join forces to help nuns sell candles at the Miner’s Day festival; Emma investigates the disappearance of David’s wife; Grumpy falls in love with a fairy.
Promo for next week’s episode, ‘What Happened to Frederick’.
"True love’s kiss can break any spell."
In last week’s episode of Once Upon a Time, David and Mary Margaret once again reached an impasse in their relationship. Both of them understand that they can’t really move forward while David is still married to Kathryn. Well, all of that is going to come to a head in the February 19 episode of Once Upon a Time.
Titled “What Happened to Frederick”, this weekend’s episode finds David being forced to make a decision about Kathryn. Although, it seems like that decision is taken from him when Regina tells Kathryn about the affair between her husband and Mary Margaret (as you can see in this promo).
In the fairytale world, Charming has already called off his marriage to Abigail and told King George that he will not be his pawn (which we saw in an earlier episode). In the upcoming episode, Abigail finally meets up with Charming for the first time after he pulled a runaway groom routine. “I won’t marry someone I don’t love” Charming insists. “I don’t want to marry you either” Abigail replied. So that should make things easy, right? Wrong. Because as a favor, Charming agrees to help Abigail retrieve something important to her, which means he has to go up against a Siren.
Here’s how Charming describes the Siren he encounters: “Your deceitful words are a spell meant to lure me to my death”. That’s when the Siren decides to bring out the big guns. In an attempt to confuse Charming, she transform herself into Snow White. Will our handsome prince fall for the charade?
Watch two sneak peeks below for the February 19 episode of Once Upon a Time. You can browse through photos for the episode here.

@girlgoneveggie: Any scoop on Once Upon a Time? Not having a new episode to look forward to this Sunday makes me sad. :(
You think you’re a little down? Well, prepare for major fallout after Kathryn’s (Anastasia Griffith) disappearance, like our dear Mary Margaret (Ginnifer Goodwin) being arrested by her own daughter Emma (Jennifer Morrison) kind of major. And wait, it gets even better! Guess who’s going to be representing Mary Margaret in court? Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle)! This should end well…
Long article I know, but read through it. It is very, very intriguing! :)
Because of the Oscars airing this Sunday, ABC’s Once Upon A Time doesn’t return with new episodes until Sunday, March 5… but if you can’t wait that long, here are some details to tide you over!
KSiteTV’s Craig Byrne attended a journalist Q&A with Executive Producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis this morning, and you’ll surely be reading about it here and on several other media outlets. We’ll also have some more details here in within the next 11 days, before the show returns. But first… you all want some scoop… right? So what is coming next?
When Once left off, it appeared that David’s wife Kathryn disappeared in Storybrooke, and Horowitz promises that it’s a mystery that will be resolved this season. The disappearance will put yet another challenge to the romance between David and Mary-Margaret, who, of course, are Prince Charming and Snow White in the fairy tale world.
“David and Mary-Margaret are really fighting a curse to be together, and this is just another element in that,” Horowitz says. Kitsis adds that this challenge “will definitely test them.” But for the Charmers who want to see more of Charming and Snow, will there be any luck?
“We do have a plan for them,” Adam Horowitz says. “We are building to something this season with them, that we’re excited to share with you, just not today, but yeah, there is a plan and there is a definite build that we’re trying to do, and we hope people enjoy where we take them.”
“The whole idea of the show is that Storybrooke is cursed, and therefore, the love is so strong, it keeps pulling them together no matter how hard we try to keep them apart, but of course the curse has to keep them apart,” Edward Kitsis adds. “One of our favorite things is the fact that I love that the audience is mad that David cheated. But he’s married to Snow White! And in Storybrooke, he has all of this guilt of cheating on Kathryn, but the truth is, that’s the curse,” he says.
“Is he cheating on Snow White by being with Kathryn?” Adam asks. “There’s a complexity that we’re trying to build with with these relationships, and making nothing easy for our characters, so that when they do achieve the things they want to achieve, it’s all the more satisfying, hopefully.”
Other scoops to come out of the Q&A:
- “What we saw August doing with putting the pages in the [Once Upon A Time fairy tale] book is kind of the first step in pulling back the onion on who this guy is and what his agenda in Storybrooke is,” Adam said about the “mysterious stranger” August, adding that August’s goal will be known “very shortly.” As for the book itself, Kitsis tells us “who wrote it and those questions will be more for Season 2.”
- Episode 16 takes place after Snow has lost her memories; a sequence in 15 takes place *before* then.
- In Episode 17, Sebastian Stan will play the Mad Hatter, and we’ll see how the Mad Hatter became mad. The caterpillar will be played by Roger Daltrey of The Who. “We kind of do our Once twist on it,” Adam says.
- Episode 18, we’ll see why the Evil Queen hates Snow White so much. Barbara Hershey guest stars.
- We’ll be learning more about the backstory of Rumplestiltskin and his son in Episode 19.
- The producers would like to have Jamie Dornan back to the series, but it is all dependent on scheduling.
