In the promo for next week’s all-new episode, we see everyone journeying into the heart of Neverland, and Hook notes the island is Peter Pan’s “bloody trap”! While we don’t see any bloodshed in the video, there is quite a threat as Emma backs Pan against a tree, holds Baelfire’s sword to his throat, and demands to know what he’s done with her son, Henry.
Though there is no sign of Neal this time around, we do see another set of lovers reunited: Belle and Rumplestiltskin! No, they’re not in Storybrooke — Belle is standing in front of Rumple in what looks to be Neverland. "If I let him keep Henry, he allows me to live,” Rumple says. Uh-oh.
In addition to Neverland action, we also see Bandit Snow and Prince Charming approaching a sword in a stone, but nothing more. What could be happening? Read on for the full synopsis, check out the promo below, then dish your theories in the comments!
"While Emma, Mary Margaret, David, Regina and Hook continue their search for Henry in Neverland, Peter Pan appears before a startled Emma and offers her a map that will reveal her son's whereabouts. But the only way to make the map appear is for Emma to stop denying who she really is and come to grips with her true feelings about her identity - and Mr. Gold receives some unexpected advice from a friend that could lead him to understand his life's journey while in Neverland. Meanwhile, in the Fairy Tale Land that was, when the Evil Queen presents Snow White with an offer to live her life with Charming in peace — with the caveat that she give up her claim to the throne — Charming makes it his mission to ensure that Snow doesn't take the offer."
