Following Sunday night’s new episode of ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” we ended up having an opportunity to take a look at the penultimate episode of the season. Ultimately, the title says quite a bit about what we can expect — “An Apple Red As Blood.”
In this hour, Henry is going to first and foremost try to make it his goal to convince Emma to not flee Storybrooke with him, and instead try to break the curse that is plaguing the vast majority of the town. However, Regina has also now started to (finally) realize that it makes more sense to try and remove Jennifer Morrison’s character from the town at any cost, and she is going to do whatever it takes to try and make it happen.
What could make this episode ultimately interesting is that we haven’t really seen too much of the world not connected to fairytales, and coupled with what we saw with “The Stranger” Sunday night this may mark the first instance of the real world bearing down upon some of these characters since the pilot — which in itself painted a rather lonely picture of Emma’s life that may explain why she wanted to stay in Storybrooke so long to begin with.
Based on what we saw Sunday night, though, Henry may be facing a major problem in his quest to get Emma fully on his side — it’s not going to be enough to just have her believe in the curse. He’s also going to have to find a way to instill enough confidence in her that she is actually capable to do something about it.
