Once Upon a Time's Charming family reunion was painfully short-lived and that won't change any time soon.
In last Sunday's premiere, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) was sucked into a portal to what was left of fairy-tale land after the curse.

"Why does everything John touches fall apart?" Elena asks in an upcoming episode of The Vampire Diaries.

But, he warns, "Nothing ever goes well by this guy. He likes to try to convey that sh--'s under control, but it never is, it seems."
