Episode 5 is called “The Doctor.” Could this be the episode that finally reveals the identity of Dr. Whale? The network isn’t saying, but Dr. Whale is listed among the guest stars, so make of that what you will.
Official description and list of guest stars after the jump (spoilers):
While Regina continues to try and stop using her magic in an attempt to win back Henry’s affections, she begins seeing what she believes is a ghost from her past.
When Mary Margaret and Emma discover a lone survivor from an ogre massacre, Emma begins to question whether or not he’s telling the truth.
Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was, Regina finds herself failing at learning the dark arts from a dark master because something from her past is preventing her from using her magic for evil.
