Spoiler alert: This feature contains Once Upon A Time Season 3 spoilers. The first half of OUAT 3 tell the story of Rumplestiltskin's father, who turns out to be Peter Pan. In the second half, the Enchanted Forest characters deal with a new green villain - the Wicked Witch of the West!
Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) and Henry (Jared S. Gilmore) are in New York in the last act of the Once Upon A Time Season 3 winter finale. Captain Hook (Colin O'Donoghue), whose memory is apparently all well, warns Emma about the danger falling onto her family. But alas, nothing in his words made sense to her. There are now more reasons to watch OUAT 3 - one of them is a green skinned, green nailed witch! (Scroll down to play the OUAT 3x12 promo.)
Princess Aurora aka Sleeping Beauty (Sarah Bolger) and Prince Phillip (Julian Morris) show up in the OUAT 3x12 promo video. How will the curse reversal cast by Regina (Lana Parrilla) affect the two, if at all?
"We're back," Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) says in the OUAT 3 video. Did the characters really lose their memory as anticipated by Regina? Spoilers give away the identity of new villain, the Wicked Witch of the West. Will this new witch be against Snow White and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas), too?
One curious thing, though, the promo says, "one of the world's most sinister characters invade Storybrooke." But the Evil Queen's curse reversal has supposedly erased Storybrooke from any map. Either there was an error in the promo narrative, or Storybrooke will somehow survive the curse reversal. Then again, an OUAT viewer won't miss the Storybrooke hospital scene squeezed into the promo.
It is up to Emma Swan and Henry to save the fairy tale characters yet again. How did Hook find Emma and Henry's New York apartment? Is the OUAT 3x12 title, "New York City Serenade" linked to the Captain Swan ship? Is it over for The Dark One? So many questions, over two months of waiting.
Once Upon A Time Season 3 spring premiere airs on March 9, Sunday, on ABC. Rebecca Mader of "The Devil Wears Prada" and "Alphas" plays the Wicked Witch of the West. Also starring in the second half of OUAT 3 is Alexandra Metz as Rapunzel.
