Reminder: A special called The Price of Magic aired on Sunday, April 14. There will be a new episode on April 21.
Once Upon a Time is taking another break — this time for three weeks. First week (March 31) was an enhanced rerun of 2×09 Queen of Hearts. The second week (April 7) was an enhanced rerun of 2×16 The Miller’s Daughter. This coming Sunday (April 14) will be a special called The Price of Magic. Then on April 21, the new episode Lacey. More details and a couple of polls — asking if you are annoyed about the break, and what you are going to do until the new episodes return — are after the jump.
On Sunday, March 31, at 8:00 to 9:00, there was an enhanced rerun of 2×09 Queen of Hearts.
The network announced in advance that the enhanced rerun “will have text on the screen and will ‘let viewers in’ on clues within the show.” It sounded like the enhanced reruns they used to have on LOST, where there were comments in a box at the bottom of the screen that pointed out connections between characters and scenes, but it turned out that the comments were much more basic — more filling in background for new viewers than telling regular viewers anything we didn’t already know.
On Sunday, April 7, at 8:00 to 9:00, there was an enhanced rerun of 2×16 The Miller’s Daughter.
On Sunday, April 14, a special called The Price of Magic will air. This is going to be a look back at what happened in Season 2. The network promises “inside scoop” from series creators Eddie Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, who will also tease the rest of the season.
On Sunday, April 21, there will be a new episode called Lacey. Lacey is the Storybrooke name of Belle, so it seems safe to assume this will be a Belle-centric episode.
After that, there will be three more episodes, for a total of four new episodes for Season 2.
I don’t know why the show is taking another break, other than my usual theory that whenever there is a break, the network is trying to stretch out the season so that the finale will be broadcast during Sweeps Week.
I’ll update this post if I find out more.
