"Once Upon A Time" Season 3 winter finale left several questions unanswered. Oncers have to patiently wait until March 2014 for the ABC series' spring premiere. Minor spoilers about a new witch and a new princess are making it to the rumour mill. But what happens next to father and son Peter Pan and Rumplestiltskin now?
Spoiler alert: This feature contains major spoilers from Once Upon A Time Season 3 2013 episodes. Minor spoilers and speculations in the 2014 episodes are also included.
Memory wipe out. This is the consequence of undoing Peter Pan's and Evil Queen Regina's curse in Once Upon A Time Season 3 mid-season finale. The good news is the Enchanted Forest characters are taken back home - something they couldn't accomplish with magic beans. The bad news is The Saviour, Emma, is taken back to New York, where she lived before she broke Regina's original curse in Storybrooke. Henry is with her, but they have no memory of Storybrooke, the fairy tale book, let alone the Enchanted Forest.
Rumplestiltskin made the ultimate sacrifice of killing Peter Pan with The Dark One's dagger, but he dies with him, too. With the curse reversed, will both characters be seen alive again? Spoilers indicate there will be a new evil to fight in the second half of Once Upon A Time Season 3. The Peter Pan chapter could be over.
Snow White and Prince Charming will be back in the Enchanted Forest with no memory of a child. How will things go for this couple? Captain Hook is seen in the final act of the OUAT 3 mid-season finale alerting Emma Swan about her family. Was this danger brought by the evil queen or the wicked witch?
Rebecca Mader ("The Devil Wears Prada," "Alphas") is on board as the Wicked Witch of the West in the second half of Once Upon A Time Season 3. Alexandra Metz is reportedly playing Rapunzel. If there's a new big enemy, can Evil Queen Regina and Snow White be friends - for good?
OUAT fans are looking forward to the return of Robin Hood, who is believed to be the long lost soulmate of Regina Mills. Tinker Bell has given an interesting introduction to this story arc, and it gives hope to fans that the evil queen may have her own "undoing," after all.
The Seer's prediction of Henry Mills as The Dark One's undoing may have already been proven right. With his huge sacrifice, Rumple has saved not only Belle but the entire Storybrooke from Peter Pan's madness. What happens next in Once Upon A Time Season 3 Part 2? Fans could only speculate for now.
