In a series of set photos from SpoilerTV (check them out here), David (Josh Dallas) and his grandson Henry (Jared Gilmore) are engaged in some serious swordplay action. It looks like David is preparing Henry for battle, which is odd, since the last time we saw characters waging a war was in the Fairytale Land, where Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) were planning to take back the castle from The Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla).

Could the good guys in Storybrooke be prepping for a fight with Regina and Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle)? If so, can magic really be defeated by mere swords? Share your thoughts!

Once Upon a Time Season 2 premieres on September 30, 2012 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
