‘Once Upon a Time’ season 5, episode 5 spoilers: Further details on ‘Dreamcatcher’

Once -For all of those excited to see what awaits some of your favorite characters on “Once Upon a Time,” rest assured that Sunday night’s new episode “Dreamcatcher” is going to be huge. This is a story that will answer many of the key questions that you have about Emma Swan and her endgame, and to along with that pass along some all-important information regarding Merlin. It may be easy to forget that he was originally a key cog in the story this season, but nobody has been able to find him.

You may have gotten a sense of some of the story from the promo on Sunday, but the synopsis below adds to that with a variety of further information:

“In Camelot, as Mary Margaret and David attempt to retrieve the Dark One dagger, Emma uses a dreamcatcher to look into the past to see how Merlin was transformed into a tree. Together, Emma and Regina figure out the critical ingredient they must acquire to free Merlin, but it’s a race against Arthur, who does not want Merlin released. Meanwhile, with encouragement from his moms, Henry musters up the courage to ask Violet on a date. Back in Storybrooke, the heroes break into Emma’s house hoping to locate Gold, but what they find will give them a glimpse of Emma’s end game. Far from prying eyes, Merida sets about the mission Emma has tasked her with and begins molding Gold into the hero they need to draw Excalibur.”

For those of you who are Merida fans, we imagine that you will find the upcoming episode particularly exciting. We thought that the character from “Brave” would be turning up more than she has over the past few weeks, but rest assured that there is still plenty of story left to tell when it comes to this character. (We still haven’t seen Red or Mulan yet, and they will be tied to her in a significant way.)
