Gaston is here, and I never in my entire life thought I’d be glad to see him. But hey, Once Upon A Time loves to put a twist in our heroes, why not our villains? So welcome to the family, Gaston! Even if you aren’t 100% nice, you can’t be as bad as the “Beast.”
Here’s all the official information we have about tonight’s episode, titled “Her Handsome Hero”
ONCE UPON A TIME (5×17):
“Her Handsome Hero”
Sunday, April 10, 8pm, ABC
*Belle wants to save her marriage, but does she want that more than she wants her kid’s safety?
*The flashbacks are taking us back to the Ogre wars, and the romance of Belle and Gaston, and frankly, we’ll afraid we’ll like it too much.
*Emma hasn’t been sleeping well, or, at all, and now, she’s having nightmares. But then again, she IS stuck in the Underworld along with everyone she cares about. This is not surprising.
Belle turns to Rumplestiltskin with hope of finding a way to protect their child from Hades. However, they disagree over whether to use dark magic, as Belle forbids Rumplestiltskin from using his powers for evil. Meanwhile, Hades secretly meets with Gaston in the Underworld and encourages him to seek revenge on Rumplestiltskin. As the heroes try to find a way to defeat Hades, Emma has a terrifying nightmare that she realizes is beginning to come true. And in flashbacks, Belle and Gaston meet for the first time, but their blossoming romance comes to a halt on the eve of the Ogre wars.
