What can we expect when we delve into what Neal has been up to now and in the year that was lost? We've gathered the biggest hints and spoilers about the episode right here.
First, let's start with the official synopsis of the episode, which gives us a lot of info about the next chapter in this magical saga:
Neal finds himself back in Storybrooke and yearns for a way to reconnect with his son Henry, whose memories of his father are gone, while also trying to find his own father, Rumplestiltskin, whom he has just learned is alive but missing, and Regina discovers a possible connection with Robin Hood. Meanwhile, in the Fairy Tale Land that was over the past year, agonizing over the death of his father, Neal — with the help of Belle and enchanted candelabra Lumiere — attempts to find a magical solution to bring back Rumplestiltskin from the dead.
OK, so it really does sound like a Neal-centric episode. And it also sounds like we might finally learn how Rumple came back from the dead (or wherever he was after taking his father down). Exciting! And we're really into the idea of Neal and Belle teaming up to get Rumple back. Their dynamic is interesting and there's a lot to explore there.
What Connection Does Regina Discover?
In this sneak peek, we see Regina and Robin get their serious flirt on — and that's before Regina spots Robin's tell-tale tattoo.
