Tinker Bell is known for flying around Peter Pan’s head and helping wreak havoc, but it remains to be seen if that will ring true in Once Upon a Time’s version of Neverland. In tonight's Season 3, Episode 3: “Quite a Common Fairy” (airing tonight, October 13 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC), we’ll see her in the past and present as she helps The Charmings & Co. with Henry’s future.
While we saw a glimpse of her blowing pixie dust at Regina (and making her pass out) and a bit of their interesting interactions in Fairytale Land during the new promo, there is much more to the story. In the recently-released synopsis, we discover that Tink offers to help Regina “improve her life” — and it looks like it was long before she became the Evil Queen.
The synopsis also reveals that the Blue Fairy will return, which hints the fairies were in cohorts. Is Tink is the bad fairy who escaped to Neverland to help Peter Pan, or did Regina do something to turn her evil? Read on for the full synopsis, then share your theories in the comments below.
“In their continuing quest to find Peter Pan's hideout and save Henry, Hook suggests tracking down Tinker Bell in the hope that she will lead them straight to his camp. Pan reveals to Henry why he has brought him to Neverland and in the Enchanted Forest, Neal has a plan that could transport him to Emma, but it would involve using one of Robin Hood's most precious possessions. Meanwhile, in the Fairy Tale Land that was, Tinker Bell offers to help Regina improve her life.”
