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.

Before Ariel's highly anticipated arrival next season on Once Upon a Time, other mermaids will make a splash on the ABC hit's Season 3 premiere. But unlike Ariel, these are nasty little fishies. According to Lana Parrilla, her Evil Queen and the rest of the Storybrooke gang traveling to Neverland will encounter a pod of finned creatures who are "beautiful, full-bodied and not the nicest mermaids. They're more like sirens."
There's a new Robin Hood in town!
Sean Maguire has been tapped to replace Tom Ellis as Robin Hood on the third season of Once Upon a Time, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
Once Upon a Time heads to Neverland, welcomes Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and Ariel!
Fans of Michelle Ryan (and we know you're out there), don't cry for the former Bionic Woman. She's already gone on to her next TV project but you'll have to go to the U.K. or wait for its arrival on BBC America to catch it. The BBC reports that Ryan has returned to her Beeb roots and is currently filming Mr. Eleven, a two-part romantic comedy. Ryan plays a teacher who's determined to marry her 1lth lover. (It's a numbers thing.) Her lovers include Meet the Spartans' Sean Maguire, who also had an ill-fated fling with American TV in the CBS sitcom The Class. We expect Katee Sackhoff will not play a role. Ileane Rudolph
