Is this the episode where we finally get Zelena’s first steps towards a real and lasting redemption?

Sure looks like it.

Especially because – hey, more backstory. And probably backstory of woe. When are the flashbacks ever happy on this show?

Don’t answer that.

But, couple that with a desire to stop the Black Fairy and thinks are looking mighty interesting for Zelena, at last.

Also – count us in for the wedding planning. Is Snow turning into Motherzilla? Does Hook get a say in anything? Where does Charming stand on wedding planning? We can’t wait to see it!

Check out the pictures for “Where Bluebirds Fly,” with a special emphasis on the not-so wicked Zelena and her sister.

The synopsis for the episode reads as follows:

In flashback, Zelena befriends a young woodcutter who has been cursed and turns to her for help finding a new heart. Zelena is forced to choose between keeping her powers and her friendship with him. Meanwhile, in Storybrooke, Zelena decides to take on the Black Fairy and put a stop to her, once and for all, against Regina’s wishes, and the Charmings disagree over Emma and Hook’s wedding plans.
