‘Once Upon a Time’ season 2 spoilers: The return of the Blue Fairy

"Once Upon a Time" - CastWhile “Once Upon a Time” has stayed fairly consistent with many of its characters between the first and second season, there have been some notable changes … with one of them being the mere lack of actual fairies who have popped up onscreen this time around. Amy Acker has still yet to reprise her role as the love interest for Grumpy / Leroy, and now we are finally getting to see the Blue Fairy / Mother Superior again.

For the upcoming episode in two weeks entitled “The Queen is Dead,” the Blue Fairy character will be teaming up with Snow White both in Storybrooke and in the fairytale world in order to take on some missions. This episode will also feature the first sighting of Snow’s mother Queen Eva via a flashback.

Check out the full synopsis for the hour below, which suggests that Emma, Henry, and Mr. Gold’s mission in Manhattan is not exactly over yet:

“Upon discovering Cora and Regina’s plan to find and take possession of Rumplestiltskin’s dagger, Mary Margaret, with the aid of David and Mother Superior, makes it her mission to find it first; and while Mr. Gold continues his quest in New York to reunite with son Bae, Hook devises a plan to rid himself of a crocodile. Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was, the Blue Fairy offers Snow White an unconventional enchantment that could help save her dying mother, Queen Eva.”

This episode is also going to be featuring Lesley Nicol of “Downton Abbey” fame, making a very rare appearance on an American television series.

Are you glad to be seeing the Blue Fairy yet again, and are you also looking forward to meeting Snow’s mom? If you want to check out some more clips from Sunday night’s new episode, you can do so over at the link here.
