Once Upon a Time in Wonderland has plenty of amazing characters, but the Knave of Hearts holds a special place in our hearts. Though we’ve learned a bit about his backstory through the first handful of episodes — including that the love of his life is actually the Red Queen, back when they were Will Scarlet and Anastasia — there’s much more to his sad tale.
In a newly-released synopsis for Season 1, Episode 5: “Heart of Stone,” we’ll see flashbacks to when Will and Ana first jumped through the looking glass to Wonderland, which is not exactly what they expected. Since they are out of place, they turn to what they know best: theft. And though the Knave has escaped consequences before, stealing the crown jewels has a high price to pay that changes everything.
Present-day Wonderland doesn’t fare much better, with the Red Queen using Alice’s love Cyrus to blackmail her into helping with something equally dangerous. However, things may be looking up as Cyrus manages to escape…

“In a flashback, Will Scarlet and Anastasia jump through the looking glass to enter Wonderland against her mother’s wishes, since she disapproves of Will. They both soon realize that life in Wonderland isn’t exactly what they had both imagined. After being humiliated while attending a ball at the palace, Ana convinces Will to steal the crown jewels in order to get them out of poverty, but in an instant, Ana is caught red handed by the King who makes her a proposition she can’t refuse – to marry him and be his Queen to avoid prosecution. Meanwhile, in current Wonderland, the Red Queen convinces Alice to help her acquire magic dust in exchange for information about Cyrus, who in turn has managed to skillfully escape Jafar’s castle leaving the White Rabbit in a compromising situation.”
