‘Once Upon a Time’ season 2 spoilers: A power-hungry Queen in new promo

Over the weekend a brand-new promo for “Once Upon a Time” season 2 aired on ABC, and with that in mind we had our first real glimpse at the major threat that the Evil Queen is going to become now that magic has come back into Storybrooke.

While this promo does not give us too much in the way of actual story related to season 2, we do see Regina using a few scare tactics to keep away the townspeople; meanwhile, Rumpelstiltskin is also once again on edge knowing that he has power over some of the other residents of the town. Belle (Emilie de Ravin) tries her best to encourage him to make sure that he is using these powers for good rather than for evil.

As for new characters, there is a brief glimpse of Mulan in this clip, and we also see the same sort of Captain Hook cliffhanger that we first saw when the show unveiled its first preview for the new season at Comic-Con this past July. This character is not going to show his face until the fourth episode of the season, but much of what we are seeing up until that point could be buildup for him. But is Hook going to be a real friend for the Evil Queen … or will he be a foe? We know that he has to have had a rather rich backstory on the show, and this will also probably surface (to use a pun of the sea) at some point during his arc.

What do you think about this new teaser, and what sort of role do you see Hook playing? If you want to check out some more news pertaining to a Dr. Whale surprise on the show, you can do so by heading over to the link here.
