This week’s Once Upon a Time is a great episode that really moves the show’s mythology forward.  Emma, Mr. Gold and Henry arrive in New York City and immediately set out to find Bae.  They do, and the identity of Gold’s son is revealed early on in the episode.  Fans with an astute eye will probably be expecting what transpires, but I won’t spoil it for the rest of you.  Let’s just say that what happens will obviously have consequences that will last the rest of the season and affect a lot of individual characters.  Not only that, but a lot of loose ends will be tied up and a few questions the show has been hanging on to for a while will be answered.  “Manhattan” feels like the beginning of a second act for the rest of the season.

Meanwhile, I can tell you that this is a big Rumple flashback episode, but we’re going all the way back to a time we haven’t seen before: the period before Baelfire’s birth.  Rumple receives notice that he has been called to fight in the Ogre Wars and he jumps at the chance: eager to escape the shameful legacy of his father.  This is a time when Milah still loves and believes in him, but things are about to change.  How Rumple got injured and how Milah starts to resent her husband will be explored and along the way we’re going to meet a very creepy Seer in the fairytale land.  She’ll have a profound effect on Rumple’s life.

Not a lot of the action takes place in Storybrooke this week, but a few things do happen there, including Greg’s continued suspicion about what’s happening in town and the fact that Cora and Regina team up with Hook to find Rumple’s dagger so they can control “The Dark One” now that he’s powerless outside of Storybrooke.  And while Mary Margaret and David only appear for a few minutes, David does get to make an amusing joke about family dynamics, while Mary Margaret gets to deliver some motherly advice to Emma.

Don’t miss an all new episode of Once Upon a Time on February 17 on ABC.  Yuo can also watch a preview for the episode here.
