Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz are the master storytellers for this hit television show called “Once Upon a Time.” They invited everyone to join the adventures with Emma Swan, Snow White, Prince Charming, The Evil Queen, Captain Hook and many more fairy tale characters. As the residents of Storybrooke prepare to protect their town and themselves against a magical force from the past, they are about to face Elsa, the Ice Queen from Arendelle.
The adventures begin in a small town in Maine called Storybrooke. It will not show up on any GPS, but it is a magical place that some call home. In this town, reality and myth united after Emma broke Regina’s curse. This curse wiped the fairy tale characters of their memories, and trapped them in a modern world.
When the Storybrooke residents finally recovered their memories, they were all disheartened that they were not sent back to Fairy Tale Land. To make things wickeder, Rumplestiltskin (also known as Mr. Gold) decided to intensify his power struggle with Regina by introducing magic into Storybrooke. However, when you mix magic with modern day, trouble always brews. That is why they say, “Magic always comes with a price.”
After Zelena (the Wicked Witch of the West) was defeated, Emma and Hook fell into a portal that brought them back in time. However, it landed them in the Enchanted Forest. They accidently messed up the initial meeting of Snow White and Prince Charming. This left Emma and Hook searching for a way to fix the timeline and get the couple back together.
If they did not get Snow and Charming back together, this would have wiped out the existence of Emma and Henry.
The Evil Queen eventually captured Emma and sent her to a prison. In the prison, Emma met a female prisoner who was scheduled to be executed. Before escaping, Emma saved that prisoner’s life and took her along. However, Hook warned Emma and believed that women’s fate was to die.
He feared by taking her back with them, that this would alter something.
Once Emma was out of prison, and back on track with Hook, the duo found a way for her parents to meet. Eventually, Emma’s magic returned to her, and she was able to send her and Hook back to Storybrooke. However, she brought the prisoner along. When they returned to Storybrooke, Emma learned that prisoner was Robin Hood’s wife, Marian.
At this point, Robin Hood and Regina begun to fall in love with one another. However, their relationship could be in danger now that Robin Hood’s wife is no longer presumed dead. This was not the only thing Emma and Hook brought back though. Unbeknownst, they also brought back Elsa.
At this point, the Storybrooke residents have no idea what Elsa has in store for them. In the past, Elsa’s kingdom of Arendelle, will explain what happened to her, Anna (her sister) and Kristoff. It will also explain how Elsa became Rumplestiltskin’s prisoner. This leaves so much for fans to learn and discover about the new adventures that are coming.
Now, Emma may have started something serious with Regina. Since Marian is back, this may spark the end of Robin Hood and Regina’s relationship. However, will this turn Regina back to her old ways and become evil?
Belle and Rumplestiltskin
In season four, we are going to dive deeper into is the newlyweds’ lives of Belle and Rumplestiltskin. They continue to fall deeper in love with each other. However, Rumple is hiding a secret. If Belle finds out, this could destroy their happened. Rumple is still the master of his dagger that calls upon him to be the Dark One.
Emma Swan and Captain Hook
With all this love in the air, we must talk about the sparks that ignited between Emma and Hook. Will these two commit to one another? They are two damaged people who may or may not take their love to the next level.
Mary Margaret and David Nolan
They just had another baby and named him Prince Neal. They are looking forward to raising him into a proud and brave adult. They are sad though. They feel like they missed doing this with Emma. Instead of helping her escape the original curse, they sent her off and did not meet again until their daughter was 28 years old.
Regardless of what is happening, Henry is happy. He has both of his mothers – Regina and Emma – in Storybrooke. He has the blood of Emma and his paternal grandfather Rumplestiltskin’s blood. He will be tested in both light and darkness. What path will Henry have in store for himself?
We remember Will Scarlet from Wonderland. He was a former member of Robin Hood’s band of Merry Men. He traveled many lands and found himself in Storybrooke. He is somehow intertwined in the activities in town. For the first time, his past is pushing him into a mysterious and unknown future.
As we enter into the fourth season, new fairy tale characters will make their appearances and meet with old, familiar faces. However, not everyone in this town can be trusted.
