The first half of Once Upon a Time Season 2 ended with a bang with Season 2, Episode 9: “Queen of Hearts,” but based on this new preview for the second half of the season, the drama has barely gotten started.

The promo teases that "the series that has America under its spell goes from heroic to epic." Based on the clips of Regina (Lana Parrilla) in a fight, Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) on Hook's (Colin O’Donoghue) ship, and more not to mention the hint that the characters might finally be able to leave Storybrooke! we're thinking the season will live up to that promise.
