Once Upon A Time doesn’t return till next month – on March 5th, to be exact, but ABC has already released some stills for episode 6×11, titled “Tougher than the Rest,” and as always, the pictures tell us very little about what’s coming our way, other than Emma looks awesome in white (and those red lips!), Gideon looks pretty damn threatening in that cape, and oh yes, Rumple and Belle don’t seem very pleased about something that’s going on. Maybe Emma will finally defeat Gideon?
Let it be so. Let it be so.
(How would that work, though? What about baby Gideon? Oh, my head hurts just thinking about it)
Also, why are they going to August? Are they looking for the magic wardrobe to get back home? Sure seems like it. And there’s Robin! Let’s hope he actually gets some action – if not, what’s the point of bringing him back? If he’s even really back for more than one episode and some change, that is.
The synopsis for the episode reads as follows:
With Snow still asleep in Storybrooke, David and Hook race to stop Gideon before he can confront Emma. Gideon makes a startling confession to Belle and Gold about his whereabouts while he was missing. Meanwhile, Regina struggles with the realization that everyone, perhaps even Robin, is better off in the alternate world where the Evil Queen was defeated. And when Emma inspires a familiar face to help her and Regina return home, she discovers the power to change her fate.
Speculation, aside, enjoy the pictures, and we’ll see you here in exactly 30 days for another episode. Maybe we should start a countdown…
Once Upon A Time airs Sundays at 8/7c on ABC. It’ll return from hiatus on March 5th.
