Unfortunately, there is no new episode of Once Upon a Time this Sunday, but we are getting a OUAT special in its place. “The Price of Magic” is hailed by ABC as a must-see for new viewers (i.e. recap special) and avid ones alike. Check out the synopsis:

“ABC invites new and avid Once Upon a Time viewers to take a look at one of the most talked about and critically acclaimed shows. Once Upon a Time: The Price of Magic will explore the series in a way that will bring new viewers up to date — but which current viewers will also find illuminating — in discovering the consequences the residents of Storybrooke have had to endure since magic was introduced into the town, and whether Mary Margaret's path has been tainted since learning that her heart has been darkened after she killed Regina's mother, Cora.

“Series creators and executive producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz will provide some inside scoop on the importance of family, the characters' journeys and the mythology of the show. They will also tease what's upcoming in the exciting final four episodes of the season.”

Sounds like it could be interesting. Sure, there will be the obligatory recapping to sit through, but it’s always nice to have a refresher — especially with a show as narratively complex as OUAT. We’re guessing the themes Adam and Eddy will discuss will all be integral to the Season 2 finale two-parter, and — along with the “tease” — will give us some big hints about what’s in store for what is sure to be a game-changing finale.
