This isn't the Peter Pan you remember from your childhood.
Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and the rag-tag group of heroes and villains that attempted to rescue Henry (Jared Gilmore) in Neverland learned that the hard way during last week's Once Upon a Time. Coming face-to-face with Pan (Robbie Kay) and his Lost Boys, Emma was forced to confront the truth about herself: She's an orphan, having grown up without the love and care of Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Charming (Josh Dallas).

But it's Pan's threat that's the real problem. He swears that by the time Emma actually finds Henry, her son will want to stay on the island. And when she leaves, she won't just feel like an orphan — she'll actually be one. Unfortunately, that might be true after Charming was skimmed by an arrow doused with Dreamshade poison.
What exactly does Peter Pan want with Henry?

A hero, a villain, a pirate and a mother. That's what it's going to take to save Henry.
During Sunday's Once Upon a Time premiere, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) learned the hard way that it will take a group effort to save her son, even if that means teaming with the parents she can't forgive and the villains who have made her life hell. After surviving a storm literally brought on by their excessive fighting, Emma decided that it was time to take a leadership role in the group that will combine both the best of being pure of heart and dastardly evil.
Neverland is a place where anything you imagine can come true — which is both good and bad news for Once Upon a Time's ragtag group of fairy tale characters.
When Once kicks off its third season on Sunday (8/7c, ABC), Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), Prince Charming (Josh Dallas), Emma (Jennifer Morrison), Regina (Lana Parrilla), Captain Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) and Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) head to Peter Pan's homeland to rescue Henry (Jared Gilmore). But having heroes and villains teaming up won't be as easy as it sounds. In fact, it's quite the opposite, as the Charmings have to deal with their foes and internal family issues all while trying to save Henry.

Once Upon a Time has found its Tinker Bell!
Rose McIver has been tapped to take on the role of Disney's classic fairy who's normally an ally of Peter Pan, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
The cast and creative minds behind Once Upon a Time were on handSaturday at the show's Comic-Con panel to tease the upcoming Neverland-centric third season.
The show went back into production two weeks ago, with the cast shooting on the Jolly Roger as their characters head to Neverland in search of Henry (Jared Gilmore), who was kidnapped by Greg (Ethan Embry) and Tamara (Sonequa Martin-Green) in the season finale. While the cast joked that they're having a good time on the Jolly Roger, Kitsis noted the characters might not be having as much fun.
