The evil smoke monster curse is back once again in the season finale of Once Upon a Time!
Sunday's finale, "A Land Without Magic" (8/7c, ABC), brings the series full circle from when the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) unleashed the curse that enslaved every fairy tale character in the town of Storybrooke, forced to live unaware of their true identities. Now, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) must decide whether or not she believes, which will then determine the fate of her son, Henry (Jared Gilmore), who ate the poisonous fruit that was meant to kill Emma.
Since Once Upon a Time premiered, the big question has been whether Emma (Jennifer Morrison), the unwitting daughter of Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) and Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), would be able to rescue the trapped fairy tale characters of Storybrooke, Maine. The first step in that process, of course, has been the most difficult: getting her to believe that fairy tale characters are actually real.

The mystery of who the Stranger is will soon be revealed on Once Upon a Time!
August W. Booth (Eion Bailey), a writer only initially known as "the Stranger," made his way to Storybrooke earlier this season. His very presence is significant since the curse prevents people in the town from leaving, and apparently Emma (Jennifer Morrison) was the only outsider to come there before him.
His arrival — especially after he added pages to Henry's fairy tale book — has sparked many debates as to who he actually is. Theories range from suggesting that he's Rumplestiltskin's son or perhaps Henry's father to even his being an older version of Henry, which would be awkward since the Stranger is seemingly attracted to Emma, Henry's mom. To get the scoop on who the Stranger is, TVGuide.com turned to writer and consulting producer Jane Espenson, who penned this upcoming Sunday's episode "The Return" (8/7c, ABC) and also offers up some juicy teases for the Season 1 finale...

Dear Once Upon a Time,
Please stop toying with our emotions! Every few episodes you bring Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) together — or their Storybrooke counterparts, Mary and David —only to tear them apart again.
The continued heartbreak is killing us.

If you thought the Evil Queen — who trapped the characters of fairy tale land in the real world in order to get vengeance on Snow White — was bad, just wait until you meet her mother.
This Sunday's episode of Once Upon a Time will introduce Regina's (Lana Parrilla) more evil mom, Cora (Barbara Hershey), who will help to shine some light on how a young and innocent girl came to be the Evil Queen. The hour will also feature what made the Evil Queen hate Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) — and it might cause from some fans to turn Team Regina!

Dealing with family can often be challenging, but in the world of Once Upon a Time, the element of magic has made the family dynamic even more complicated.
Jennifer Morrison's down-to-earth Emma had previously lived a rootless existence, but now she's decided to stay in Storybrooke long-term, and her presence has begun to chip away at the curse the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) had unleashed on the town. While this has caused the residents to see changes in their lives that have put them on the path to learning their true fairy tale identities, Emma is also undergoing her own transformation. Although she's currently unaware that the alter ego of her roommate Mary Margaret (Ginnifer Goodwin) is actually both her mother and Snow White, living with her has made an impact.

When will we learn what Snow White did that made the Evil Queen hate her so much on Once Upon a Time? — Sarah
NATALIE: April 1 is the magical day. So much is revealed in the hour that Lana Parrilla says she was surprised the story wasn't spread over several episodes. "You'll meet young Regina," she says. "I look totally different -- fresh-faced, doe-eyed, young, fun, excited about life, in love, and then it just gets really dark. It's way before she becomes the Evil Queen." Adds Ginnifer Goodwin: "Folks will sympathize with the Evil Queen in ways they're not expecting."
I'd love some Bones scoop! — Molly

There's definitely a chill in the air on the Once Upon a Time set. It's hard to keep warm as a cold winter rain falls on a picturesque town square an hour from Vancouver that's doubling for Storybrooke, Maine. But no weather, even in Canada, can match the cold contempt with which Storybrooke's mayor, Regina (Lana Parrilla), treats constituent Mary Margaret (Ginnifer Goodwin) in today's scene at a town fair.

Though Once Upon a Time features such iconic fairy tale characters as Snow White, Prince Charming, Rumplestiltskin and the Evil Queen, the old adage that true love's kiss can break even the strongest curse has yet to be successful on the ABC series.
So what will break the curse that keeps hundreds of fairy ...
