Once Upon a Time Season 3, Episode 2 Spoilers: 7 Things We Learn From the Promo
Once Upon a TimeSeason 3 premiered with a Neverland-centric episode that saw our heroes nearly drown themselves in a literally storm of anger, introduced us to the very crafty Peter Pan, and assured us that Nealfire is alive — but currently stuck in the Enchanted Forest. What's coming up next in Season 3, Episode 2: "Lost Girl"? The promo for the episode gives us some clues.
We've taken a magnifying glass to the preview for next week to see what we can find. Here are our seven takeaways.
The search for Henry continues. It should come as no surprise that this episode seems to focus on the continued quest to find Henry, as our gang of heroes makes it further into Neverland.
What's coming from above? At :06 we see Rumple look up at something. The shadow, maybe?
Are they following Peter? At :10 we hear Regina ask, "How do we know Pan won't lead us into a trap," to which Hook responds, "This whole island is his bloody trap." That sounds to us like they're following Peter Pan. That might be related to Emma and Pan meeting each other at the end of the promo. Hey, at least you can't say the plot isn't progressing quickly.
Surrounded by Lost Boys. At :11 the gang (still sans Rumple) is surrounded by Lost Boys. That's not good...
Rumbelle reunited? At :13, Rumple, who looks like he's still in Neverland, is talking to Belle. What? Huh? What do you think: Dream connection? Hallucination? There's no way Belle is actually in Neverland, right?
Peter's bargain. Rumple tells Belle, "I let him keep Henry, he allows me to live." That sounds like a bargain Peter would strike, but would Rumple consider taking it? At this point, he seems to be on a bit of a suicide mission to save his grandson, so we're thinking he turns Pan down.
A sword in a stone. At :15 Snow and Charming see a sword in a stone, and at :16 Snow pulls it out, 'cause she's awesome. Based on their outfits, we're thinking this scene is from a flashback. Unless they have an unexpected costume change. Hey, it's Neverland — anything can happen.
