Victoria Smurfit, Once Upon a Time Victoria Smurfit, Once Upon a Time

The dog days are over!

Victoria Smurfit, who played the murderous Cruella De Vil, will be returning to Once Upon a Time, TVGuide.com has learned. She will be back for the second half of the season for multiple episodes, but she is not appearing in the 100th episode.

But wait, didn't she die when Emma (Jennifer Morrison) blasted her off a cliff? Yes, yes, she did. There's no word on exactly how the dastardly damsel of the dalmatians will return, but she does fall nicely with our theory that Once will be visiting Hell in the second half of the season, where we'll reunite with others who have died.

What's your best guess on how Cruella will return?

Once Upon a Time airs Sundays at 8/7c on ABC.
