ABC’s Once Upon a Time turns 100 and pulls out all the stops in the mid season opener reuniting some friendly and not so friendly faces to help kick off the hero’s new adventure in the Underworld.
The hero’s Camelot quest culminates with an impossible decision Emma must make with consequences she amy never be able to come back from, and in Dunbrouch, Merida teams up with Mulan and Ruby on a very personal mission, in a special two-hour “Once Upon a Time,” starting at 8/7c, Sunday, November 15 on ABC.
In Camelot, Merlin spearheads a mission to reunite the dagger with Excalibur so he can use the weapon to save Emma from the darkness threatening her soul. With Zelena in tow, Hook, Mary Margaret, David, Regina and Robin steal into Arthur’s castle to take the broken sword from the maniacal king.
Merida’s (Amy Manson) courage is tested as her brother’s lives hang in the balance and Belle’s (Emilie de Ravin) fate is left up to Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 1 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET).
Merlin get’s his heart broken, get’s turned into a tree then get’s released. Henry plans a date, get’s his heart broken, saves the day two more times then get’s his heart broken again. Merida tries to find proper motivation to whip Rumple into shape, Regina witnesses more than one heartbreak and has a heart-to-heart with Miss Swan. It’s a rollercoaster of a ride and even though the episode is named “Dreamcatcher” i think a more appropriate title is “Heartbreaker” because there are plenty to go around.
Emma and Regina formulate a plan to free Merlin but find they are missing a key ingredient that is both precious and painfully required.
In Camelot, as Mary Margaret and David attempt to retrieve the Dark One dagger, Emma uses a dreamcatcher to look into the past to see how Merlin was transformed into a tree. Together, Emma and Regina figure out the critical ingredient they must acquire to free Merlin, but it’s a race against Arthur, who does not want Merlin released. Meanwhile, with encouragement from his moms, Henry musters up the courage to ask Violet on a date. Back in Storybrooke, the heroes break into Emma’s house hoping to locate Gold, but what they find will give them a glimpse of Emma’s end game. Far from prying eyes, Merida sets about the mission Emma has tasked her with and begins molding Gold into the hero they need to draw Excalibur, on “Once Upon a Time,” SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Well it’s a brand new day and we’re back once again with our friends from Storybrooke, the Enchanted Forest, I mean Camelot. Arthur is in the running to take over the position of obsessive Mad Hatter level crazy, Emma nearly wipes out hook with a yellow bolt of magic, and Snow and Charming go head-to-head Season 1 level argument. What we aren’t seeing is very much of Regina part in saving Emma nor are we seeing much of Emma’s transition into the Dark One, you know the most evil being known to man. At most we’re starting to get a little naughty but still nothing on Rumple’s level of Dark One and I for one am a little disappointed.
Maybe in the coming episodes we’ll start to see Emma take the reigns of how a person with unspeakable power and anger rules with an iron fist but at this point by not seeing Emma making much noise as the Dark One it makes it hard for me to worry about her family and friends being able to bring her back to the Emma they know and love. I need to see another level of Emma like we did last season during the road trip with Regina when Emma pulled a gun on Lily. We were taken to the edge of will she or won’t she pull that trigger until Regina pulled Emma back reminding her of who she is and that had the audience on the edge of our seats.
When she learns King Arthur may be hiding his true intentions, Mary Margaret must convince David and the heroes of her suspicion before they jeopardize Emma’s safety.

After a failed attempt to pull Excalibur from the stone Emma embarks on a new plan to snuff out the light. She pays the dwarves a little visit to borrow an ax expecting it will break the sword free of its stone encasement. But this is magic, dark magic and even though Emma is new to the Dark One game shouldn’t she know that an ax used by the dwarves can’t stand up to dark magic? Apparently not because she tries and fails to make a dent in that giant rock.
The fans came out in full force to support their favorite fair tale show and catch a glimpse of the one and only Dark Swan at this years New York Comic Con panel for ABC’s hit series Once Upon a Time.

In Camelot, the heroes feverishly work to free Merlin.

Meanwhile, Mary Margaret discovers the fate of her old friend Lancelot. Back in Storybrooke, Arthur seeks David’s help to catch a thief who threatens the safety of the citizens of Camelot.
