The Winter Finale of Once Upon A Time will air this coming Sunday, and we will have to wait until March to see what the outcome will be of the inevitable ‘cliffhanger’! Upon the show’s return, ABC will air the 100th episode of it’s hit show. I wonder what that cake will look like, an Enchanted Forest perhaps? Why not throw in a mixed bag of ONCE realms, and characters to round it out? I bet Buddy from the Cake Boss would come up with a great 100th episode cake, but I digress.

“Swan Song” – The dark siege of Storybrooke is underway as all of the resurrected Dark Ones target a living soul for sacrifice so that they can return to the realm of the living. With doom imminent, Gold advises Mary Margaret, David and the rest of the heroes to spend their last fleeting moments enjoying the company of their loved ones. Emma, however, refuses to give up, knowing that she is responsible for righting all the poor choices she made as Dark One – there’s only one problem, Dark Hook. When they face-off with the fate of Storybrooke at stake, Hook’s actions will devastate Emma in a way no one saw coming. In a Fairy Tale Land flashback, the Evil Queen tests Hook’s mettle by forcing him to confront a demon from his past before contracting him to dispatch one from hers, on the winter finale of “Once Upon a Time,”SUNDAY, DECEMBER 6 (8:00-9:00 p.m., EST) on the ABC Television Network.

“Once Upon a Time” stars Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White/Mary Margaret, Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan, Lana Parrilla as the Evil Queen/Regina, Josh Dallas as Prince Charming/David, Emilie de Ravin as Belle, Colin O’Donoghue as Hook, Jared S. Gilmore as Henry Mills, Sean Maguire as Robin Hood, Rebecca Mader as the Wicked Witch/Zelena and Robert Carlyle as Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold.

Guest stars include Lee Arenberg as Leroy/Grumpy, Adam Croasdell as Brennan, Oliver Bell as Young Killian, Caroline Ford as Nimue, Eric Keenleyside as Maurice, Scott Hylands as Captain, David-Paul Grove as Doc, Gabe Khouth as Sneezy, Faustino Di Bauda as Sleepy, Michael Coleman as Happy, Mig Macario as Bashful, Sebastian West as Boy and Andre Tricoteux as Massive Brawler.

“Swan Song” was written by Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz and directed by Gwyneth Horder-Payton.

If we thought Broken Heart left fans feeling absolutely gutted, then Swan Song just might shatter our already fragile shipper hearts! It is always darkest before the dawn, and Emma and Hook will have a very rough road ahead. I don’t think it will be something that they cannot overcome though. There was a glimmer of hope and light in the last episode, and mid-season finales usually fix one problem, while opening up a whole new issue. The hope I saw was that Hook could and would not crush Emma’s heart, just to enact a curse. I believe in this couple, the writers’ and this storyline. It is going to be a beautiful, but gut-wrenching episode.

I am a shipper of Hook and Emma, and it’s really painful to hear Hook say all the painful words to the love of his life. It will just be all the more beautiful, when they are cured of the darkness that lives inside them. They will have to take the time to heal, and I imagine that Hook will need that time to forgive Emma for what she did.

I am getting ahead of myself in that regard, because we have to get through the winter finale, and have our own Swan Song! We might be in for a rough finale, and have to wait until March to see the outcome, but it will be epic! We also get to find out about #PapaHook, and I am really looking forward to that, and maybe Hook’s younger years!
