It’s been months since that terrible, no-good, awful cliffhanger on Once Upon a Time. You know, the one where a dark Hook turned good again and sacrificed himself in order to save Emma and the rest of Storybrooke? Except that what he failed to realize was that he wasn’t the true “Dark One,” Rumple was?!
When the series returns on Sunday, March 6, here’s hoping that Emma, Snow and the rest of the crew can actually save the poor misunderstood character. But in order to do so, they’ll have to travel to the Underworld, where darkness and disillusion is just another day in the lives of these characters.
To whet our appetite for more of the fantastical, ABC has released some new photos from the spring premiere, “Souls of the Departed.” Peruse through them below, at your own risk of course.
‘Once Upon A Time’ plunges into the Underworld

New father figuresPoor Henry just has no luck with his dads... could Robin be the next best thing?ABC
A dark transformationOr, will he take after his grandfather and just do the dark thing from now on? We're kind of digging this mini Rumple look, ourselves. ABC
The true Dark OneWe're sure that Rumple, for one, won't exactly mind Henry's little transformation. ABC
The return of CoraOut of all the baddies we expected back, Cora was at the bottom of the list. Surely this means terrible things for Regina.ABC
The dark queenYup, we were waiting for this. Whenever Regina puts on her queenly outfit, we know stuff is about to go down. ABC
A merry celebrationAt least we know that we can always count on the Dwarfs for a good time. With all that darkness and dankness, a little dinner party was in order, no?ABC
