Once Upon a Time Season 2 doesn't come back until 2013 (it returns on January 6), and every second we have to wait is painful.

Fortunately, we have spoilers to help us through the break, including the official synopsis for Season 2, Episode 11: “The Outsider” (January 13) which sounds very interesting.

Apparently Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) creates a spell that he thinks will allow him to leave Storybrooke without losing his memory — and he finds an "unwilling" subject to test it out. (So much for being a better person.)

Relatedly, "Belle [Emilie de Ravin] stumbles upon a vengeful Hook [Colin O’Donoghue] in the Storybrooke harbor" and, surprise, surprise, his "main goal" is still to "eradicate Rumplestiltskin." That sounds bad for Belle...

In more domestic news, the Charmings "go house hunting in search of a bigger place to live." Cute!

Finally, in the flashback, "Belle meets Mulan [Jamie Chung] as the two set out to slay a fearsome beast called the Yaoguai, who has been ravaging the land."

It sounds like this episode is Belle-centric, and we couldn't be happier!
