Once Upon a Time Season 2 is more exciting than ever, so we can't wait for Season 2, Episode 11: “The Outsider” (January 13).

To help pass the time between now and the episode, we've taken a close look at the sneak peeks and preview. Here are the eight most interesting things we've learned.

1. Mulan's village is in trouble. In the flashback clip below, we learn that Mulan's (Jamie Chung) village is being threatened by a terrible beast, and unfortunately Mulan is too injured to fight it.

2. Belle and Mulan join forces. In the same clip, we also learn that Belle (Emilie de Ravin) has somehow fallen in with Mulan, and has helped her track the beast. But will she be able to kill it?

3. Archie gets a funeral. Archie Hopper (Raphael Sbarge) is still alive, but the townsfolk don't know that, so he gets a funeral. Sad.

4. The townsfolk want to go back. In the clip below, Grumpy (Lee Arenberg) declares that the dwarves, at least, want to return to Fairytale Land, where there isn't the risk of strangers discovering their secret.

5. Hook attacks Belle. In the clip below, we learn that Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) attacks Belle this week. It probably happens early in the episode, since in the clip Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) is gearing up to face off with Hook, which Belle disapproves of.

6. Rumple is working on his honesty. On the plus side, at least Rumple tells the true story of why he hates Hook. Okay, it's a biased version of the truth, but still.

7. Rumple breaks the curse. In the preview below, we see that Rumple successfully breaks the curse and crosses the town line without losing his memory. "Now you can find your son," Belle gushes. But will Hook get in the way?

8. Henry is worried about Regina. In the same preview, we see Emma (Jennifer Morrison) trying to comfort Henry (Jared Gilmore), who appears to be worried Regina (Lana Parrilla) will try to take him back (remember, he thinks she's totally evil again).
