Spoilers are trickling in for the January episodes of Once Upon a Time. We already know that the January 6th return of the show will feature Hook and Cora in Storybrooke, as well as Regina being under suspicion for murder. But after that, Mr. Gold will start a journey to find his missing son, Mary Margaret and David will happily move forward in their relationship, and a stranger will arrive in Storybrooke. Here are teasers for two upcoming episodes.
“The Outsider” (January 13): Mr. Gold finds an unwilling test subject to see if a spell he has concocted will allow him to cross the border of Storybrooke — without losing his memory — and go in search of his son, Bae; Belle stumbles upon a vengeful Hook in the Storybrooke harbor whose main goal is to eradicate Rumplestiltskin; and Mary Margaret and David go house hunting in search of a bigger place to live. Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was, Belle meets Mulan as the two set out to slay a fearsome beast called the Yaoguai, who has been ravaging the land. Ethan Embry will guest star in this episode as a “stranger/outsider” and Christopher Gauthier will also be returning as Smee.
“In the Name of the Brother” (January 20): Dr. Whale is tasked with mending Hook’s wounds and performing surgery on the stranger whose car crashed upon entering Storybrooke. But some of the townspeople fear that the stranger may have seen magic — which could expose their true identities to the world — and think that leaving him to die would be the best solution. Meanwhile, as Mr. Gold tries to reunite with a despondent Belle, Cora attempts to reunite with daughter Regina; and in the land that was, Victor desperately wants to prove to his disapproving father that he can, indeed, bring back the dead. Ethan Embry will guest star in this episode as well.
