The temperature may be dropping in Storybrooke, but the drama is just now starting to heat up!
Brace yourselves, Once Upon a Time fans because this Sunday’s all-new episode is so undeniably epic that they had to add a whole extra hour. That’s right — we’re being treated to not one, but two hours of adrenaline-pumping fairytale fun, and ETonline has your exclusive sneak peek of what you can expect.
We chatted with Elizabeth Mitchell — aka our cold-hearted Snow Queen — to find out what’s next for our Storybrooke residents in this week’s “epic” event, when the dreaded Spell of Shattered Sight will finally be unleashed, and how the newest mega magical weapon will come into play.
Last week, it was incredibly moving to finally learn about the Snow Queen’s dark past. How did this episode change the way you see her, and consequently play her?
EM: She makes me sad because she’s been through so much. She killed someone as a kid and then she went and got trapped in an urn for who knows how many years and I kind of made the choice that she was self-aware in there because I wanted there to be a reason for her madness. A reason for that cracking to happen to her psyche, I’ve always felt for her and to watch the innocence that she had and the promise for who Ingrid could have been got wiped away and there was really no one there to guide her or to help her control it. Her sisters definitely tried and she kept making all of these wrong choices and horrible things kept happening and it made me sad.
