Once Upon A Time Preview: “A Bitter Draught”

Hello again, Oncers! It’s nice to be back in the swing of things. Worrying about Emma keeping secrets, the Evil Queen convincing Zelena to help her, and the whereabouts of baby Charming.

(Not really worrying about Hyde yet. Maybe that’ll change.)

But, we’re also anticipating Aladdin and Jasmine, the return of some old favorites, and hopefully, some good moments, in between the bad ones.

Here’s all the official information we have about tonight’s episode, titled “A Bitter Draught”

Once Upon A Time (6×02) – “A Bitter Draught

Sunday, October 2nd. 8/7c. ABC


  • Zelena. Will she join forces with the Evil Queen or will she turn to Regina? Or, will she somehow manipulate both?
  • The Count of Monte Cristo, who makes his debut in this episode – and, who, apparently, has history with the Evil Queen. How did you wrong him, Regina? How?
  • Belle, who apparently needs a place to sleep now that she’s finally left Rumple. Hey, if Hook can offer the Jolly Roger, does that mean he’s actually staying with Emma?






When a mysterious man from the Land of Untold Stories, who has a past with the Evil Queen, arrives in Storybrooke, David and Snow work together with Regina to neutralize the threat. Belle seeks Hook’s help finding a safe place to hide away from her husband, Mr. Gold. The Evil Queen continues to try to win Zelena over to her side, while Emma resumes her therapy sessions with Archie and shares her terrifying vision of the future.
