Last we saw of Emma Swan on Once Upon A Time, the heroine was desperately building dreamcatchers in hopes of holding off The Dark One, but her condition was rapidly deteriorating. Now, we’re seeing just how much those mystical objects meant in a new preview for the next episode, which is called ‘Dreamcatchers’.
Check out the promo for the episode which features Rumpelstiltskin facing off with Merida and an Emma and Henry scene that may just make us tear up, among other bits of action!
If the overall gloom in that promo left you a little out of sorts, watch this adorable clip with Henry wooing Violet! Afterward, Henry has a quick chat with his mom in her dark form.
Young Henry may be falling in love, but who’s pulling the strings behind the missing horse dilemma? We’re guessing Emma.
And who ever thought Rumple would be begging for mercy? In a second clip, he’s doing just that in the presence of The Dark Swan, who is delightfully snarky in return as she hatches a plan!
In Camelot, as Mary Margaret and David attempt to retrieve the Dark One dagger, Emma uses a dreamcatcher to look into the past to see how Merlin was transformed into a tree. Together, Emma and Regina figure out the critical ingredient they must acquire to free Merlin, but it’s a race against Arthur, who does not want Merlin released. Meanwhile, with encouragement from his moms, Henry musters up the courage to ask Violet on a date. Back in Storybrooke, the heroes break into Emma’s house hoping to locate Gold, but what they find will give them a glimpse of Emma’s end game. Far from prying eyes, Merida sets about the mission Emma has tasked her with and begins molding Gold into the hero they need to draw Excalibur.
