The residents of Storybrooke may finally get a victory during Sunday’s episode of Once Upon a Time, when Emma (Jennifer Morrison) finally catches the elusive Snow Queen (Elizabeth Mitchell)—but all may not be what it seems.

Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Sunday’s episode of Once Upon a Time.
The Snow Queen has arrived!
During Sunday’s episode of Once Upon a Time, a chill continued to hang over Storybrooke—but Elsa (Georgina Haig) wasn’t to blame when Maid Marian (Christine Laing) suddenly turned to ice. Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Charming (Josh Dallas) discovered that the real culprit worked at the local ice cream parlor, thanks to the help of cunning thief Will Scarlet (Michael Socha).
But Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and Elsa found the source first, discovering the Snow Queen (Elizabeth Mitchell) in the middle of the woods, tinkering with some sort of mini ice castle. The Snow Queen admitted that she was framing Elsa to prove a point—every “normal” person would eventually look at her as a monster. Then SQ attempted to kill Hook to prove her point, but Emma and David arrived in time to save the day.
Surprisingly, SQ actually knows both Emma and Elsa from their pasts, though both of them are unaware of that fact. The Emma connection remains to be seen, but Elsa and SQ first crossed paths when Hans (Tyler Jacob Moore) set out to locate a magical urn that would capture Elsa. However, when he went to use it, SQ came spilling out. She promptly turned Hans into a popsicle and found a kinship with Elsa: She’s apparently Elsa’s aunt! We say “apparently” because, honestly, can she really be trusted? EW turned to Mitchell to find out.
Elsa isn’t the only ice queen in Storybrooke.
At the close of Sunday’s episode of Once Upon a Time, Lost alum Elizabeth Mitchell finally made her debut as the owner of the local ice cream parlor, which wasn’t affected by the town’s power outage caused by Elsa (Georgina Haig) thanks to similar magical powers that enable her to freeze things. That’s right, Mitchell is playing the Snow Queen, the real villain of the first half of the season.
Once fans got their first glimpse of the Snow Queen during the promo for next week’s episode, but you can check out Mitchell in all her Snow Queen glory below:
Last week’s Revolution ended with a shot heard ’round the world — or at least in Willoughby, Texas — when Monroe (David Lyons) put a bullet in the back of Texas Ranger John Fry (guest star Jim Beaver) to initiate a war between the rangers and the Patriots, leaving Miles (Billy Burke) shocked and speechless.
But Elizabeth Mitchell, who stars on the show as loving-mother-turned-resourceful-badass Rachel Matheson, says her character knew it was coming. “My immediate response was, ‘I told you so!'” Mitchell tells EW.
It’s an understandable reaction: Monroe may appear to have changed his villainous ways since the destruction of the Eastern seaboard in the first season finale, but Rachel remembers him as the militia leader who imprisoned her for eight years and ordered the deaths of her husband and son. Plus, Mitchell says, he’s a “loose cannon,” and his actions at the end of the last episode have only looped the gang into entering what will inevitably be a costly — and bloody — war.

UPDATE: NBC has announced it will preempt tonight’s episode of Revolution for a news special covering the explosions at the Boston Marathon.
ORIGINAL POST: Tonight’s episode of NBC’s Revolution is an important one for fans who’ve been wondering what Rachel (Elizabeth Mitchell) cut out of her dead son Danny’s body. “That scene was horrible,” Mitchell says, looking book on filming the twist. “The thing about acting is that most of it is reacting. You have people in the room. In this case, there’s this kid. I was crazy about him. He hung out with my son. We were always together. So there’s this kid, and he’s dead in front of you, and you’re taking out a capsule. It’s one of the worst things you could imagine. But as far as that piece of technology goes, it’s such a great mystery. We explain exactly what that thing was in tonight’s episode and why it’s so important to all of us.” READ FULL STORY
”We have light, power, we have everything.. and it’s time to let everyone know it,” declares Monroe ominously in this sneak-peak of tonight’s Revolution.
After a long hiatus the show returns at 10 p.m. and to get fans pumped NBC released the first 8 minutes of tonight’s episode ”The Stand.” Charlie, Miles, Rachel and the gang face off with Monroe’s helicopter and there’s a huge explosion within the first minute. Judging from Monroe’s plan, thing are about to get interesting.
In ‘The Spoiler Room’ executive producer Eric Kripke told EW, ”If the first half of the season was to find Danny, the second half of the season, this war really begins.”

Lost fans, Juliet Burke is back. Or at least a J.J. Abrams-Elizabeth Mitchell collaboration is on the air again.
Mitchell has reunited with the Lost mastermind for Revolution, an NBC event series that Abrams is executive producing. The show, which comes from Supernatural creator Eric Kripke, takes place 15 years after all sources of electrical power have ceased working — no light bulbs, no batteries, no cars, none of that. Mitchell plays Rachel Matheson, the mother of the family at the heart of Revolution. In the 15-years-post-blackout time when most of the show takes place, (SPOILER ALERT!) Rachel is dead — or at least her family thinks she is — but the actress will appear in several episodes during scenes that flash back to the first days of the blackout.
Mitchell took on the role this summer, replacing Rescue Me actress Andrea Roth who was in the original pilot. Ahead of Monday’s on-air premiere of Revolution (it was released online last week, so watch it here), EW talked with Mitchell about starting a new show via reshoots, working with costars like Tim Guinee and how the show has gotten her thinking about her chances in a post-apocalyptic world.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When you sign up for another J.J. Abrams-produced, high-concept show, is there a point when you think, “What have I gotten myself into?”
ELIZABETH MITCHELL: Oh, sure. I do that all the time on every project though. I had watched the pilot with Andrea in it, and I thought that it was extraordinary, so when Eric called me, I was really excited. I was like, “Everybody’s okay? Everything’s good? It’s just a different direction? Yes? Okay, awesome.” READ FULL STORY
