But before she's caught, she's on the phone with a certain someone. Could it be her partner in crime?

It's the mystery man from the Season 2 premiere! In the episode description, he's a "fellow thief who wants to make an honest woman out of" Emma.

But considering they have a knack for getting busted by the cops, it doesn't look like that will happen.

once-add-06

So who is the mystery man? He kind of looks like Henry — whose father's identity is still not known — though he could also be Rumplestiltskin's missing son Baelfire. Or maybe they're one and the same!?

Snow will immediately be on alert. She looks pretty badass, right?

19 of 55 Jack Rowand/ABC

And her worst fears will be realized when she discovers this.

That's right, Captain Hook is the lone survivor of the ogre massacre — but was it really ogres? Or could it be pirates?

Hook appears to be getting friendly with Rumplestiltskin's wife, Milah. Probably bad news.

30 of 55 David Gray/ABC

But the world may not be what it seems.

31 of 55 David Gray/ABC

Considering this is a Hook-centric episode, could this be his sidekick Smee doing the kidnapping?

32 of 55 David Gray/ABC

If Prince Charming is making deals with Rumplestiltskin, we should all be worried!

Now that the residents of Storybrooke remember that they're actually our favorite fairy tale characters, Regina will have a lot to answer for in the season premiere, "Broken," airing Sunday, Sept. 30 at 8/7c on ABC. The good news: Here's the Charming Family reunion we've been waiting for!
48 of 55 Jack Rowand/ABC

once-upon-a-time3

Magic is back! But it doesn't look like Regina knows how to harness it yet. Will she be able to stop the oncoming onslaught of angry Storybrooke residents? "One of the themes of Season 1 [was]: Magic has a price," co-creator Adam Hororwitz says. "In Season 2, it is: What does that price mean in our world?"
49 of 55 Jack Rowand/ABC

once-upon-a-time2

By the look on Regina's face, she may figure out the magic sooner rather than later. But the real question is: Why hasn't everyone been transported back to fairy tale land? "Is there even anything to go back to?" co-creator Edward Kitsis teases. "How do we know anything exists?"

once-upon-a-time4

Charming and Snow's sweet embrace at the end of Season 1 will probably be short-lived. They'll be on the frontlines now that the curse has been lifted, but that's certainly not the biggest issue they'll face this season. "We felt like breaking the curse at the end of Season 1 should hopefully send a message ... that the show's not just about that," Hororwitz says.
51 of 55 Jack Rowand/ABC

once-upon-a-time4-1

Now that Emma has made the choice to not only be Henry's mother, but to be the savior of Storybrooke, she'll certainly have her work cut out for her in Season 2. Plus: At Comic-Con the producers revealed that we'll definitely learn the identity of Henry's birth father.
52 of 55 Jack Rowand/ABC

once-upon-a-time4-2

"You tell 'em, dad!" OK, so maybe Emma isn't actually saying that in this photo, though we'd like to hope she is! Still, the Charming family reunion will be worth the wait, especially between Snow and Emma. "Finding out that your mom is Snow White and that she's actually quite a bad ass and she's not the meek, little teacher that you thought she was, that's like you're meeting a whole new person," Kitsis says.

Many of the Storybrooke residents' dual identities were revealed last season, but Dr. Whale's alter ego is still a mystery. However, the producers promised at Comic-Con that it would be revealed in Season 2.

once-upon-a-time6

Technically, mother and daughter already live together, so maybe the whole Charming family will be moving into Casa de Snow? Let's not hold our breath, but here are some things we can look forward to: The return of August/Pinocchio, the introductions of Captain Hook, Sleeping Beauty, Mulan and Sir Lancelot, among others, and the possible returns of Bae, Maleficent and — crossing fingers — Sheriff Graham.

With the rumors that Emma and Snow will be off on their own for a while, this photo of Henry starring longingly at a photo of his mother and grandmother does not bode well. What does this mean? Tune in Sunday, Sept. 30 at 8/7c on ABC to find out!
