The Frozen storyline has come to an end—and Once Upon a Time is about to take a darker turn.
During Sunday’s winter finale, Anna (Elizabeth Lail), Elsa (Georgina Haig) and Kristoff (Scott Michael Foster) finally went back to Arendelle, but not before Anna tipped the heroes off to Rumple’s (Robert Carlyle) more nefarious ways. Fortunately, Belle (Emily de Ravin) was able to prevent her hubby from killing Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and sent Rumple across the town line—which means he can’t return due to the Snow Queen’s spell.
In the Enchanted Forest that was, Belle was kidnapped by the Queens of Darkness—Maleficent (Kristin Bauer Van Straten), Cruella de Vil (Victoria Smurfit) and Ursula (Merrin Dungey)—so they could leverage her for a magical gauntlet from Camelot that reveals a person’s greatest weakness.
