For the penultimate episode of “Once Upon a Time” this season on Sunday night, get ready to see the Evil Queen doing something that we haven’t really seen that much of in the fairy-tale world since she turned Sidney into the Magic Mirror — being genuinely evil.
While Snow White assembles her troops (which include Grumpy, Red, and Grandma) to try and stop her latest scheme, the Queen (who we like to refer to in Storybrooke as Regina) comes up with a unique plan of her own — bust out the poisoned apple and strike fear into the hearts of everyone. On this occasion, we only see her flaunting in front of Prince Charming, but it’s pretty clear who it is intended to affect.
While this story unfolds in this world, Storybrooke is going to descend into total chaos. Henry has to try and convince Emma to stay put in the town and fulfill her destiny, while she wants to haul him away from all the craziness and find something remotely resembling a normal life. We can’t imagine Emma holding out for too much longer — so with that in mind, expect to see some sort of warfare … and no one is really safe from the crosshairs.
Who do you think is in the most danger over the final two weeks of the season?
