Extended ‘Once Upon a Time’ Season Finale ‘A Land Without Magic’ Preview: Believing and Fighting

Once Upon a Time season 1 ends on Sunday with episode 22, “A Land Without Magic,” and the big question everyone’s wondering about is whether or not Emma will begin to believe what Henry’s been telling her all season. Will it happen?

As sneak peeks have shown, Dr. Whale doesn’t know what to do because he can’t find any signs of poison like they think he should. Emma does look to Henry’s book and does seem to be considering magic. Is her desperation going to be what leads to her believing?

The extended Once Upon a Time season 1 finale promo for episode 22 “A Land Without Magic” (below) begins like the shorter one: with a brief recap of the entire season. This preview shows flashes of Emma’s birth and Emma standing over Henry saying, “I should have believed you.” Now that’s certainly pointing to Emma believing in this episode and the series addressing what that means for everyone next. The show has been renewed for a second season, but where will it go if she does indeed believe? How much will things change? Will Henry be around to see this happen, or could this be his final episode? Things aren’t looking good for him, which means he’s not going to see his mother do what he’s wanted her to do all this time.

This promo also shows Emma with a gun, facing what sounds like a dragon. Is this after she goes down into the mines with the sword or before? After not believing all season, just how much is Emma going to get into the thick of things in the season finale?

There is also more from fairytale land and more from Charming’s fight with Rumplestiltskin. Rumple tells him, “There’s no way out, except my way.” As has been shown, that’s not a good thing.

What do you think of the extended Once Upon a Time season 1 episode 22 preview of the finale, “A Land Without Magic”?
