Once Upon a Time‘s second season premieres on September 30 with “Broken,” which will see the aftermath of the curse being broken and magic coming to Storybrooke and will introduce a few new characters.
OUaT Season 2 Episode 1 “Broken” Official Description
“Reality and myth begin to merge as the fairytale characters awaken from Evil Queen Regina’s broken curse and remember who they were. But to their dismay, they aren’t transported back to fairytale land. To make matters worse, Rumplestiltskin – aka Mr. Gold – in an effort to gain the upper hand in his power struggle with Regina, has introduced magic into the town. In fairytales magic has its place, but in our world it can have unfathomable consequences. Meanwhile, back in the fairytale land, Prince Phillip awakens his sleeping beauty, Aurora (Sarah Bolger, ‘The Tudors’), but discovers that he and his traveling companion, Mulan (Jamie Chung, ‘Sucker Punch,’ ‘The Hangover Part II’), will soon have to face a deadly foe.”
The morning after a new preview aired for Once Upon a Time season 2 (below), ABC has released the above official description for the first episode, “Broken,” and as both tease, the big question is going to be “So what now?” These characters are going to be facing having magic in their lives once again, and it’s not going to be so easy to adjust. After all, they’re going to be stuck figuring out what they do next and dealing with Regina, who’s going to be mad after losing Henry. With magic coming to Storybrooke, anything can happen, and as the promo teases, everyone has to be ready. It’s already been established that magic is unpredictable in Storybrooke. Just because the curse has broken and Rumplestiltskin has brought magic to town doesn’t mean that won’t still be true.
Meanwhile, the premiere will also be introducing a few of the new characters coming in the new season. Just because magic has come to Storybrooke doesn’t mean there aren’t still stories to tell in fairytale land, and right in the first episode of the season, they’ll be showing that’s true. Will these new characters become favorites like the ones from season 1 have? Who is this “deadly foe” they’ll be facing? How will they tie into the rest of the story?
