Another long-awaited backstory on 3×09 Save Henry (Dec. 1, 2013)

3x09 Save Henry

There won’t be a Once Upon a Time episode on November 24, 2013, because it’s being pre-empted by the American Music Awards. So the next episode will be broadcast on December 1.

In the last episode, we saw a flashback about Rumplestiltskin’s childhood which answered many questions we have had. In this episode, there will be another flashback that will address questions we’ve been wondering about since early in Season 1. More after the jump (spoilers):

“Save Henry”
