Once Upon a Time Season 3, Episode 6 Spoilers: 8 Things We Learn From the Promo
Once Upon a TimeSeason 3 has already introduced us to Tinker Bell, and on Season 3, Episode 6: "Ariel," we'll meet another Disney icon — the red-headed star of The Little Mermaid. What will OUAT's take on everyone's favorite mermaid look like? We've examined the episode's promo to see what it reveals.
Ariel and Snow knew each other. The promo begins with Ariel, as a mermaid, introducing herself to Snow in a flashback, presumably to Fairytale Land, since as far as we know Snow was never in any other lands.
Ariel's love at first sight. It looks like we'll learn OUAT's take on Ariel's love story with Prince Eric. At :07 she appears to be telling Snow about how she fell in love with Eric at first sight, which is exactly the kind of romantic story Snow adores.
Ariel gets her legs. Just like in the classic tale, this mermaid will get her legs at some point in the flashback, because at :10 we see she and Snow at a ball. Snow encourages her to go over to Eric, so it definitely looks like she's made it her mission to help this love grow.
Flashback Snow in action. At :15 Snow, in the flashback, appears to be facing off against two men with swords, because that's how she rolls. At :16, we see her jumping off of a cliff into the ocean. Our guess: She's jumping to escape the attackers, and then Ariel helps rescue her. Perhaps that's how they meet?
Regina is Ursula! At :11, flashback Regina looks very angry about something and then at :13 declares, "I've got a new plan." We think this is related to the fact that she is Ursula, as we see at the end of the promo. Awesome! Can't wait to learn how and why.
Emma draws her sword. Meanwhile, in the present we see Emma drawing a sword at :13. We always like to see Emma in action!
Hello, Shadow. At :14 we see Peter Pan's shadow rising out of the ground. Regina appears to be facing it, as well as possibly Rumple?
Belle choking. At :15 we see Belle (or, more likely, Rumple's imagining of her) choking. Hmmm... weird.
