‘Once Upon A Time’ 5×20 Preview “Firebird”

The path of true love never did run smooth, but oh, it runs. That’s where this week’s episode finds Hook and Emma – facing a challenge that could change this story for good. Are these two really true love? We’re about to find out.

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


  • Rumple and Pan have kidnapped Zelena, and it really does seem like Hades is willing to do whatever it takes to get the “love of his life” back. Who knew?
  • Redemption seems farther and farther away for Rumplestiltskin. The end justifies the means has always been his motto, but what will happen when someone turns that against him?
  • Are Emma and Hook true love? You’d think we’d gotten a confirmation by now, but no.  However, it looks like we won’t have long to wait, as this week presents a quest that “only true love” can complete.




Hades turns to the heroes to ask for help with getting Zelena back from Rumplestiltskin and Peter Pan. In return, he offers to take all their names off their tombstones. However, when Hook is still unable to leave, he and Emma must journey into the depths of the Underworld. Meanwhile, Cruella De Vil is determined to keep the heroes trapped in the Underworld. In flashbacks, Emma searches for answers about her family and makes an unexpected friendship.
