Regina goes missing and we finally see where Bae ended up after leaving the Enchanted Forest so long ago. If you haven’t seen Second Star to the Right left, then read no further and consider this your official SPOILER ALERT
Emma, David, and Mary Margaret are on the hunt for Regina after discovering that she burned down the magic beans, only to discover that she has gone missing herself. Still suspicious of Tamara, Emma begs Neal for his help while David and Mary Margaret head over to Mr. Gold to ask him for a spell to track down Regina. Lacey (fka Belle) overhears the exchange and is taught the truth about magic.
In the flashbacks we’re taking to the moment after Bae left The Dark One and find him landing in London where he meets Wendy Darling. She tells him about a magical shadow that steals children (especially boys) to Neverland – a land without adults.
Regina is finally rescued by Mary Margaret and David (after being tortured into admitting that she murdered Owen’s father) and Tamara is finally unmasked. Additionally, it seems that Owen & Tamara aren’t destroying magic just because, they work for a group that plans to purify our world for the “virus” of magic.
Sadly, Neal gets shot and falls through a portal to another land… of course, after Emma and him exchange “I love you”s.
“Second Star to the Right” was definitely filled with action, and answered a lot of questions that I thought we’d never get to (like, will Gold tell Lacey about magic? What did happen to Owen’s father? Will Neal ever believe Emma about Tamara?) I still wish we would’ve seen more about Bae and Neverland – does he become Peter Pan? And where’s Tinker Bell? Let me know what YOU thought of “Second Star to the Right” and don’t miss the season finale of Once Upon A Time, next Sunday on ABC.
