Episode 3×11 Going Home broadcast on Sunday Dec. 15, 2013 was the OUAT winter finale. The show is now on hiatus until March 9, 2014, when it will return with episode 3×12 New York Serenade. The reason there is such a long break this year is that it enables the show to air with fewer of the annoying, random breaks that we’ve seen in the past. When OUAT comes back, it will run straight through till the season finale. What do you think? Do you think the break is too long, or do you think it’s better to do it this way?

According to a post on the site TV|Line, the episode title is based on a Bruce Springsteen song. Here’s what Michael Ausiello found out when he talked to the show’s creators:
We asked the Once creators about the midseason premiere, which airs March 9 and is titled “New York City Serenade.” But other than confirming that the Bruce Springsteen fan in him had a hand in coming up with that title, Adam Horowitz would only confirm, “There’s a lot of Emma in that episode, that is for sure.”
