Once Upon a Time Returns March 9th (Are You Ready?)
Well, after a three month hiatus, Season 3 of Once Upon a Time is finally returning. Based off the preview we can expect: the Wicked Witch of the West, everyone in mortal peril again, and it’s up to Emma to save the day. Again.
At the close of the last episode, Emma was in domestic bliss with no memory of her magical past or her family. It seemed she and Henry got their happily ever after – one year without magic, villains, and complicated love triangles. That is, until Hook showed up on her doorstep giving her one knock out of a kiss trying to jog her memory. We all knew that happy ending could only last so long. (I will say, if the show had been canceled it would have been a stratifying way to end the series.)
“Serenading Manhattan” will pick up where the cliffhanger left off. The actors have been talking about the season and it seems the show might take a darker grittier feel. Also, there’s a new villain at play. I’m a little hesitant about the Wicked Witch of the West but with Regina and Gold switching sides and Pan concurred we need a new villain to change things up a bit. This season has been working towards a different feel, and I hope the show continues to listen to its fans. Again, we are left wondering if OUAT will be all over the place or figure out a rhythm that suits the show.
What I hope will be cleared up: What’s happening with Mulan and Aurora? Will Regina and Robin Hood happen? What’s going to happen with the Hook, Emma, Neil love triangle? What’s up with the creepy Darlings? What Once Upon A Time in Wonderland tie-ins will there be? (At the moment Once Upon A Time in Wonderland is the better show).
Watch the promo below. What are your thoughts and hopes for the rest of the season?
P.S. Once Upon A Time in Wonderland is also coming back Thursday, March 19th
