WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD! Do NOT continue reading unless you watched the Season 3 finale of “Once Upon a Time.”
We can’t stop talking about the “Once Upon a Time” Season 3 finale -- and for good reason! The ABC series had us glued to the TV for two hours. Between Hook and Emma, Maid Marion and the jaw dropping “Frozen” ending, we’re dying for more. And it turns out there was more on the way.
Following the Season 3 finale on Sunday night, “OUAT” co-creator Adam Horowitz decided to treat fans to a special deleted scene from the episode.
“You #Oncers are the best fans we could ever hope for,” he posted on Twitter. “So, as promised, I shall tweet the script pages for a deleted scene from tonight’s ep.”
“The scene was to occur right after the Neal flashback and before Emma’s scene in the dungeon with the prisoner,” Horowitz continued.
For those who don’t remember, Queen Regina had captured Emma after believing her to be aiding Snow White -- a criminal offense in the Enchanted Forest of the past. The deleted scene in question has Emma being led into the evil queen’s throne room by some knights, fortunately still glamoured from Rumpelstiltskin’s spell. Our heroine is told to kneel before Regina, and when she doesn’t budge, a guard pushes her to her knees.
Turns out that Regina wanted to question Emma about Snow White and her whereabouts. But Emma tells her that she has no idea where Snow White is.
“I don’t know what kingdom you come from, 'Princess Leia' but here the price for aiding Snow White is steep,” Regina fires at her. However, Emma’s answer stays the same.
“Look, I don’t know where she is but … if you let me go … I can help find her,” Emma tries to bargain. But Regina knows better than to fall for that.
“You’re no Princess,” Regina counters. “I know a dirty street rat when I see one. And I know not to trust such creatures.”
And THAT'S how Emma got thrown in the dungeon and ended up freeing Maid Marion.
