Someone is going to be stirring up a little bit of trouble in Storybrooke!
Regina’s (Lana Parrilla) dark half, the Evil Queen, resurfaced at the end of the Season 6 premiere last week. The heroes have fought her before, but things are different this time around on the ABC fairytale drama. The Evil Queen is no longer buried deep inside Regina — she’s now her own person.
Right now Regina’s estranged sister, Zelena (Rebecca Mader), is the only one who knows that the Evil Queen is loose in Storybrooke. And unfortunately that won’t be the only issue plaguing the town. The synopsis for episode 2, titled “A Bitter Draught,” teases that a “mysterious man” from the Land of Untold Stories will become a threat. This character has a “past” with the Evil Queen. And while it’s not clear exactly what that means, he could possibly want revenge — or want to wreak havoc.
Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) and David (Josh Dallas) will act as a support system for Regina. However, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) will be dealing with her own problems. She’s been having frightening visions of the future, and will turn to Archie (Raphael Sbarge) for help.
Meanwhile, Belle (Emilie de Ravin) will look to Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) for help. She wants to stay far away from Gold (Robert Carlyle), and needs a safe place to stay. Could Hook offer up the Jolly Roger?
