‘Once Upon a Time’ season 3 spoilers: Why is the Wicked Witch around?

Wicked Witch -Do you want to get a few more details in advance on the upcoming season of ‘”Once Upon a Time“? Then we got some more good news to share for now courtesy of an ABC press release: Some more of the first details surrounding what the story for the episodes ahead is going to be.

Based on what this suggests, it is possible that we are really going to see very much at all of some of the characters in the enchanted Forest. Why? It all comes back to Rebecca Mader and her character of the Wicked Witch, who is back around yet again to wreck all sorts of havoc and create ruin for so many who come into contact with her.

With all of this in mind, we bring to you those aforementioned details:

“All is not well back in the Enchanted Forest when Hook comes calling on Emma in New York City in an attempt to jog her memory so that she can once again help her fairy tale family and friends out of a desperate situation. Everyone she holds dear is in danger as a new foe emerges – the Wicked Witch of the West (Rebecca Mader, “Lost”). Hook now must enlist Emma in an epic struggle that spans worlds: with the highest stakes possible – the fate of her family. No one remembers how they were transported back or the past year they had spent back in Fairy Tale Land. But someone in town is responsible for this curse, and all clues point to the Wicked Witch of the West, whose agenda in our world is a mystery. In an attempt to break the curse, new fairytale characters will be revealed and old acquaintances will be revisited. But not everyone can be trusted.”

The one interesting thing to us about this twist right away is that it almost restores us to a format that we had in the show’s first season, at least in that there were some memories that have been lost. Is it a little repetitive? Maybe, but we have a new villain, and that is always very much appreciated.
