It's been three long months since Once Upon a Time shocked viewers by sending our favorite fairy-tale characters back to the Enchanted Forest while wiping Emma's (Jennifer Morrison) and Henry's (Jared Gilmore) memories of their time in Storybrooke.

If you need your memory jogged about the ongoing plight of Once Upon a Time's fairy-tale menagerie, you're not alone. When the series returns after its hiatus, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and her son, Henry (Jared Gilmore), are enjoying an uncharacteristically tranquil existence in present-day New York City — with zero recollection of their magical past or of the unlucky inhabitants of Storybrooke.
