Info on second episode of Season 2

Cora and the young Snow White in 1.18 The Stable Boy

Once Upon a Time’s second episode of the second season, airing on October 7, 2012, is called We Are Both. It’s written by Jane Espenson,  directed by Dean White, and features the return of Cora, Regina’s mother, who we first met in episode 1.18 The Stable Boy. The seven dwarfs will be back too.  The official plot summary (warning: spoilers) is after the jump: 

While Regina continues to find a way to regain her magical powers, David continues his quest to uncover the whereabouts of Mary Margaret and Emma; and the seven dwarves discover what happens when any of the townspeople try to step past the city limits of Storybrooke. Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was, as her wedding day to King Leopold approaches, Regina is confronted by a man of magic who promises to help her become independent and break free from her mother Cora’s (Barbara Hershey) clutches.

  1. Reading that Cora will be returning is fantastic! I loved her episode first season, it’s always fascinating to learn the back-story of evil characters. A co-worker and I have been trying to figure out Cora’s fate, as it seems she is no longer in the picture. I can’t wait to find out for sure when I finally watch the premiere. I am also curious as to the identity of the “magical man” that will be assisting Regina. With all of the connections of this show, I can only imagine that this is alluding to the moment that Ruplestiltskin and her first meet. If this is true, then it seems he may be responsible for the creation of the Evil Queen. [corporate marketing plugs edited out — MsTerri]

  2. Yes, I also think the “magical man” will turn out be Rumplestiltskin. I wonder if he is going to be the one to give Regina her powers — or if she will get them from her mother, Cora. And where did Cora get her powers in the first place? I suspect from Rumplestiltskin. His involvement with this family goes very deep. Did he give powers to both mother and daughter and then set them up against each other?

What do you think?
