Once Upon a Time Season 3, Episode 3: What to Expect
Once Upon a TimeSeason 3 hit the ground running with a strong premiere and an even better Episode 2. Who would have guessed that all the show really needed to boost creativity was a trip to Neverland?
What can we expect when we meet one of Neverland's most famed occupants, Tinker Bell, in Season 3, Episode 3: “Quite a Common Fairy”? We've collected all the biggest pieces of info about this episode right here to help you prepare for Sunday, when we suspect we'll learn Tink is anything but common.

The Official Synopsis
Let's start with the official synopsis of the episode, which sheds some light on where the story is going next.
In their continuing quest to find Peter Pan's hideout and save Henry, Hook suggests tracking down Tinker Bell in the hope that she will lead them straight to his camp. Pan reveals to Henry why he has brought him to Neverland and in the Enchanted Forest, Neal has a plan that could transport him to Emma, but it would involve using one of Robin Hood's most precious possessions. Meanwhile, in the Fairy Tale Land that was, Tinker Bell offers to help Regina improve her life.
We also know that the Blue Fairy will be in this episode, which hopefully means we'll learn more about fairy society. We have to admit, we're still not 100 percent sold that the Blue Fairy is all lightness and good, so we're excited to see what else we might see from her this week.
Regina and Tink's Backstory
For once, a famous figure has a connection to someone other than Rumpelstiltskin. Exciting! But what exactly did Tink offer Regina in the past? This sneak peek sheds some light on the situation.
In this clip, Tink (who is full sized rather than a tiny fairy) is given Regina's version of her history with Snow White. Regina describes her "foe" as a monster who "had [her] fiancé killed." Um, sure Regina. Tink, however, is moved by the story, and offers to help find Regina another love, claiming that fairy dust will help.
Of course, we all know that Regina has not found another True Love since Daniel (at least not yet), so we have a feeling that whatever Tink tries won't work out exactly as she intends.
