The Once Upon a Time Season 2 episode titles keep rolling in. We've already learned what Season 2, Episode 1 is called “Broken,” and Season 2, Episode 2 is called "We Are Both." Now, it looks like Episode 3 will reference a classic tale.

Spoiler TV reports that Season 2, Episode 3 will be titled "Lady of the Lake," which is almost certainly an allusion to the Arthurian legend of, uh, the Lady of the Lake.
This character has various roles (and names) in the Arthurian story, depending on which version you're reading. She's mostly known for giving King Arthur his sword, Excalibur, enchanting Merlin (in some tales she's the one who traps him in a cave) and, most notably, raising Lancelot after his father dies when he is a young boy.
We know that Episode 3 will introduce OUAT's version of Lancelot (played by Teen Wolf hottie Sinqua Walls), so we're guessing the Lady in the Lake will interact with him, though it's possible Merlin and/or Arthur will also be in the episode (some fans theorize that Dr. Whale's fairy tale counterpart is Merlin). We wonder if the Lady of the Lake is somehow related to the secret Lancelot has with Mary Margaret (Ginnifer Goodwin).
We'd previously reported that the episode is called "Hook Night," which is what IMDB says. However, since Lancelot is reportedly appearing in Episode 3, and Captain Hook isn't supposed to show up until Episode 4, "Lady of the Lake" seems like the more likely option for this episode.
What twist do you think the writers will put on this classic tale? Let us know in the comments below.
Once Upon a Time Season 2 premieres on September 30, 2012 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
