We've taken a close look at the sneak peeks of the episode to see what we can learn before it airs.
Rumplestiltskin coming to town. In the sneak peek below, we learn that the NYC contingent is headed back to town, and Rumplestiltskin's (Robert Carlyle) wound is still bad. Very bad, actually — his name is fading from the Dark One dagger, suggesting he could die soon.
Cora wants to be the Dark One. In the same clip, Cora (Barbara Hershey) decides that clearly Rumple's current state means she just has to kill him and take his power. Yeah, we're sure that wasn't her plan all along. Totally believe that.
Will Snow have her revenge? In this clip, Rumple and Co. do make it back to town, and Snow (Ginnifer) declares that they'll have to kill Cora before she can start controlling Rumple. Charming (Josh Dallas) agrees Cora should die, but doesn't think Snow should be the one to do it because she would never be able to live with herself. Is he right?
Rumple is seriously dying. "I am dying, that much is certain," Rumple declares in this clip, before demanding to to call Belle (Emilie de Ravin) so he can say goodbye.
Cora was poor. In this flashback sneak peek, we see that Cora as a peasant (a miller's daughter, to be exact). Even back then, she had a defiant spirit.
Snow's mom sucked. In the same sneak peek we also meet Snow's mom, Eva, when she was younger. Spoiler alert: She was a bit of a bitch back then.
Cora humiliated. That sneak peek ends with Cora being humiliated. Given what we know of her, we suspect she'll get her revenge, somehow.
Cora and Rumple form a bond. In this later flashback sneak peek, we see that Rumple and Cora have not only met, but formed a very close bond.
Cora getting married. In the same sneak peek, we learn that Cora is marrying into the royal family. Clearly, her prospects are looking up. But is this marriage what she really wants? She seems conflicted.
