Once Upon a Time finally returns in less than 30 days, and we couldn’t be more excited to see all the twists and turns of Season 3. The cast has been sharing little tidbits about the upcoming episodes as they film, but we didn’t catch a glimpse at any new character in action — until now!

TV Guide shared a photo of Tinker Bell and Regina together, looking happy as they walk arm-in-arm. It’s not often that we see the Evil Queen looking so pleased — not to mention in a long, flowing white maxi dress with her hair down — so this photo probably has much more of a story behind it.

We’ll meet Tink (played by Rose McIver) in Episode 3, and showrunner Eddy Kitsis teases, “Our Tink is very strong, a lot of fun, and not afraid to go out and have a few shots.” Could these two be drinking buddies? It’s almost too much for our minds to process.

This “mischievous” fairy’s heart is usually in the right place, but she has a mysterious past. However, that may work in The Charming & Co.’s favor when they arrive in Neverland.

"Captain Hook has a history with Tink and wants to find her to help lead the team to Peter Pan's camp,” Rose teases. Plus, we’ll see Tink in “different stages of her life, including during interactions with the Blue Fairy and the Evil Queen,” adds co-creator Adam Horowitz. Hmm, so does that mean Regina will be able to connect with Tinker Bell, too? Only time will tell.
