With all sorts of big bads running around Storybrooke, Once Upon a Time is twistier than ever, so we can't wait for the next episode, Season 2, Episode 11: “The Outsider” (January 13).
To help pass the time, we've gathered all the juiciest spoilers about the episode right here for your reading pleasure.

The curse broken? According to the official synopsis of the episode, Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) creates a spell to allow people to leave Storybrooke without losing their memories, and he finds an "unwilling" subject to test it on. Hmmm ... that sounds like something Belle (Emilie de Ravin) wouldn't like. Maybe that's why Rumple is trying to" reunite" with her in Season 2, Episode 12: “In the Name of the Brother.”
Belle and Hook. Speaking of Belle, this week she stumbles upon a vengeful Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) in the Storybrooke harbor. Could she get kidnapped along with Archie (Raphael Sbarge)?
Belle flashback. This episode will be very Belle-centric, with a flashback where "Belle meets Mulan [Jamie Chung] as the two set out to slay a fearsome beast called the Yaoguai, who has been ravaging the land." We're excited to see these two team up. We're sure they'll make a fierce pair.
A Charming change: Meanwhile, the Charmings "go house hunting in search of a bigger place to live," probably so they can avoid more awkward moments with their daughter walking in at inappropriate sexy times...
A crash? Hook hurt? The episode synopsis for Episode 12 makes it sound like the ep begins with Hook injured and a stranger having crashed in the town. It's possible those things happen at the very beginning of Episode 12, but we're thinking they're events near the end of this episode instead.
