‘Once Upon a Time in Wonderland’ episode 2 preview: What comes next for Alice?

Meet Sophie -Earlier tonight, you had an opportunity to check out the second episode of ABC’s “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland,” a show that before tonight, was really still quite a mystery to many critics. The press screeners sent out to critics was just for 20 minutes of the episode, and it was the same one that was given to media very early in the year. There was nothing new to see, and it was therefore one of the few shows that nobody knew much about. We imagine that much of this had to do with getting all of the effects right, but we’ll see when the ratings come in tomorrow whether or not this was ultimately the best move on the network’s part.

For now, we have a preview for next week’s episode that is worth checking out. It will give you a little bit of backstory as to the Alice / Cyrus relationship, and also showcase some pretty awesome battles between the Red Queen and Jafar. Who doesn’t like seeing Naveen Andrews playing a badass?

Take a look at the full synopsis below, in addition to the promo below:

“In Wonderland, Alice concocts a plan to find Cyrus and uses his genie bottle as bait to find out who she’s up against and who her real friends are. Meanwhile, the Red Queen and Jafar face off and in flashback, viewers find out how Alice and Cyrus fell in love and how Cyrus ends up in Wonderland.”

As you are watching this season, remember that this is meant to be a self-contained story. Therefore, don’t think that you are necessarily making a huge commitment for an extended period of time.
