What is Emma Swan going to do when she saves Storybrooke this time around? The answer may actually surprise you. While Jennifer Morrison’s character previously wanted to start a new live on “Once Upon a Time” with her parents in the tiny town, we’re not so sure that she feels that way anymore.
As for what the biggest reason for this is, the latest sneak peek below for Sunday’s “Quiet Minds” suggests that it is Henry. She is not in the same position that she once was in coming into the town thanks to Henry’s persuasion. He now has virtually no idea at all what this town is, let along who the people in it are. To him, it is just an opportunity to help his mom on some sort of case that she is working on.
In the end, we understand her desire to keep it that way if she can at all. After all, why expose Henry to a group of people who could complicate and possible destroy his entire vision of what is real and what isn’t? Still, we have a hard time believing that the current status quo is what the show is going to remain at for a very long time … or at least long enough for Emma to go back to New York City with her, In the end, this tale is so much more interesting if she has a reason to stick around, and Henry is aware of his own part in it.
Also in this preview, Emma and David face off against another flying monkey, and discover the insane side of Rumpelstiltskin out in the woods. Hooray for Robert Carlyle being so brilliant!
