For being the ostensible star of the show, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) has been a bit MIA for the first few episodes of Once Upon a Time Season 2, since many of them have revolved around Regina (Lana Parrilla), Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle), and the goings on in Storybrooke instead of Emma's adventures in Fairytale Land.
But that's going to change in Season 2, Episode 6: “Tallahassee.” If you can't wait until Sunday to find out what happens when the spotlight is turned back to Emma, read on for our collection of the juiciest spoilers about the episodes.

Emma flashback: Yes, we finally get to see what Emma was like back in her thieving days. Fun! The episode title, "Tallahassee," suggests we'll learn a lot more about Emma's time in Florida. Another spoiler suggests we'll also see her in Portland, though we don't know if that's Portland, Maine, or Portland, Oregon.
Making an honest woman of her: The press release for the episode says that "Emma's past is revealed to be anything but magical when she meets up with a fellow thief who wants to make an honest woman out of her." And who is that fellow thief? The preview and sneak peek photos show it's the Mystery Man from the opening of the Season 2 premiere (Season 2, Episode 1: “Broken”). Does that mean the Mystery Man is Henry's (Jared Gilmore) dad? It seems like it, especially because we know we're going to meet the dad in this episode, though with this show appearances can be deceiving.
Emma gets arrested: Based on this sneak peek photo, it looks like we'll probably find out how Emma winds up in jail while pregnant with Henry. We'll definitely see her get arrested. Hopefully we'll get the full story of how Henry's dad screwed her over.
Facing the Giant: The press release also reveals that in present-day Fairytale Land, "Emma takes a journey with a not-too-trustworthy Captain Hook [Colin O’Donoghue] up a treacherous beanstalk in an attempt to steal the [magical compass mentioned in Episode 5: “The Doctor”] from a murderous giant (Jorge Garcia, Lost)." If the OUAT giant is anything like the giant in the original Jack and the Beanstalk story, he's likely to be very bloodthirsty. He certainly looks intimidating!
Mulan wants to leave Emma behind: Before you get out your pitchforks, let's clarify: based on the Canadian preview of the episode, it looks like Emma tells Mulan (Jamie Chung) that if she and Hook don't get back from their journey up the beanstalk within 10 hours, Mulan should cut down the beanstalk and move on. It appears Emma fails to come back, and Mulan wants to follow through on her instructions. Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Sleeping Beauty (Sarah Bolger) don't like that plan.
