Once Upon a Time wasted no time in restoring Emma's (Jennifer Morrison) memories. On the midseason premiere on Sunday, Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) gave her a potion that came with some consequences: That boyfriend (Covert Affairs' Christopher Gorham) Emma has been dating for the last several months?

Once Upon a Time will never be the same after Sunday's midseason finale.
In order to save Storybrooke from Peter Pan (Robbie Kay), Rumple (Robert Carlyle) needs the Black Fairy's wand so he can cast a spell that will return Henry (Jared Gilmore) to his real body and enable him to return the curse scroll to the group to be destroyed by Regina (Lana Parrilla). But if Regina destroys the scroll, there will be a heavy price...
