Does any show spoil itself as much as Once Upon a Time does? This is not a judgement. More is more is a valid promotional strategy.
No one is safe on this Sunday’s The Queen is Dead with two deaths. One in present-day. And one in the Fairy Tale Land past. As you can see from the promo, sneak peek clips and promo images, the Rumple family — grandfather Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle), father Baelfire/Neal (Michael Raymond-James), mother Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and son Henry (Jared Gilmore) –bond a little in Manhattan. At least father and son do. And then Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) shows up to exact his revenge on a Rumple with no magic. But he attacks him with his hook not The Dark One’s dagger, so there’s hope.
That’s the Dark One’s dagger in Snow’s hand. But whose heart is Regina/Evil Queen holding?
The Blue Fairy offers young Snow a chance to save her dying mother.
Once Upon a Time airs on Sunday nights at 8 p.m. on ABC in the U.S. and 7 p.m. on CTV in Canada.
