Welcome to the Magical Moments Report for the “Bleeding Through” episode of Once Upon a Time. Here you’ll find highlights and insights for the recent events affecting Storybrooke, Fairy Tale Land and more. WARNING: There are spoilers here if you haven’t yet seen the episode. Enjoy!

One Night Stand: We jump back to see a young Cora working as a barmaid in a tavern. This is where she met Prince Jonathan. He asks Cora to marry him with a ring made of straw. He promises to return in two weeks with a band of gold. They’ll meet at the crossroads at that time. In the meantime, Cora will keep him company in his room. That turns out to be a mistake.

 

Pure as the Driven Snow: Cora and Prince Leopold hit it off immediately. They make plans to get married. The gardener who impregnated Cora blackmails her to keep her secret. Princess Ava overhears the deal they make. Cora vows to her prince that there is no baby. Princess Ava begs to differ.

 

Okay, Here’s the Plan: Zelena has Charming’s courage and Regina’s heart. Rumple’s brain is next on her list not to mention Mary Margaret’s baby. It’s all part of her plan to change the past. It’s a past where Mr. Gold’s son is still alive. He could find his boy and perhaps never give him away.

 

Time Crunch: Zelena hopes to go back in time to kill Snow White’s mother. That means Mary Margaret will have never been born. It also means Emma will have never exited either. Same goes for Henry. David realizes his unborn baby may be the key to success for Zelena’s plan.
