Once Upon a Time is a show divided. For Season 3, there will be an 11-episode run, then a long, near-three-month break, and then another 11 episodes. While we’re only headed into Episode 7: “Dark Hollow” next week (November 10), we’re already looking ahead to the next few, and from the sounds of their titles, we have a lot to look forward to.
Co-creator Adam Horowitz is great about sharing episode titles with fans, and we’ve rounded up the next three. In order, they are:
The show bosses have been vocal about the first half of the season being set in Neverland, but with Episode 10, it sounds like a big change is ahead. Will Episode 7, which takes place back in Storybrooke with Ariel, set things up for a rescue mission, then Henry will be saved in Episode 9? That sounds like quite a fairy tale ending, but given the show’s central theme, it makes sense.
However, there will be some bumps in the road. We know that Rumplestiltskin’s father, Colin (played by Stephen Lord), will be introduced in flashbacks in Episode 8, and is likely to recur throughout at least the first half of the season. We’ve speculated that Colin could be the other person that Peter Pan has locked in a Neverland cage, and chances are that we will learn that sometime between Episode 8 and Episode 11.
What do you think, Oncers? Will Henry be saved? Will everyone escape Neverland? Sound off in the comments below!
Once Upon a Time airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
