Tonight ABC airs Once Upon A Time 4×09 and after the two weeks we finally see Liz on tv! YAY!!!!
And here’s the usual recap of all the stuff released about the episode!
This is what Liz said about The Spell of Shattered Sight:
The Spell of Shattered Sight sounds absolutely amazing, but totally terrifying! When can fans expect to see that come into play?
EM: We’ll see it all start to kind of happen in the next one I don’t think I can really say what happens with everybody but I know that in the reading of it and the watching the aftermath of it—it’s just very delicious. I say delicious and I don’t want people to think it’s a fun spell, because it’s terrifying and it’s really, really, really horrible. But at the same time it gave all of our beloved people some really incredibly fun stuff to play. And it gives them a chance to see some of the characters that we love and haven’t seen in a certain way for a while, so I think it brings out a lot of fun things and it was definitely a great acting challenge for everyone. [From ET Interview]
“It’s a big spell. What’s powerful about it is that it’s such deep magic. It doesn’t just affect one person, it affects everybody that it touches. It not only causes pain, but it causes death to everybody except for the people that she’s chosen.” [From EW Interview]

Curiosity: After Robin Weigert in 4×02 another Liz’s costar on the show: Charles Mesure will guest star as Black Beard on OUAT tonight. I wish they had scenes together, but I guess they won’t because he’s in Arendelle and she’s in Storybrooke.
I would have loved a V reunion tho!
There is an article about the Spell of Shattered Sight with a small interview with Liz. This is what she said:
‘Once Upon a Time’: How will the Spell of Shattered Sight affect Storybrooke?
At the close of the last Once Upon a Time, the Snow Queen (Elizabeth Mitchell) released the dreaded Spell of Shattered Sight, which will cause the town’s residents to turn on one another as they can only see the most ugly aspects of themselves and others around them. Sound familiar? That’s because the spell is adapted directly from “The Snow Queen,” the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale that Frozen is based on.
“It’s a big spell,” Mitchell tells EW from the Vancouver set of the ABC fairy tale drama, where just outside her character’s ice cream parlor, the Seven Dwarves are at each other’s throats as the spell takes hold. “What’s powerful about it is that it’s such deep magic. It doesn’t just affect one person, it affects everybody that it touches.”
What’s more terrifying is that the town may not realize how powerful this spell really is. “It not only causes pain, but it causes death to everybody except for the people that she’s chosen,” Mitchell reveals.

This is a nice review about Liz, but it contains theories about the upcoming episodes. Enjoy! 😀
Will The Snow Queen Return After ‘Once Upon A Time’s Winter Finale? Ingrid Is Too Interesting To Lose
I think Ingrid, the Snow Queen, has to be one of my favorite Once Upon a Time villains. She’s not tainting the memory of a childhood favorite like Peter Pan. She whispers instead of yelling, which is almost always more menacing. She’s not connected to Cora, thank the good fairies above. She brings a philosophy about magic that we haven’t seen yet on a show with so many magical characters, and I appreciate that. It’s also interesting to see a villain who wants something so simple, yet does terrible things in order to achieve it. I wish Elizabeth Mitchell could be on the show forever! Wait, can she? Will the Once Upon A Time winter finale end the Snow Queen? I certainly hope not, but TVLine spoilers about the “embarrassment of witches” coming to OUAT this spring do not bode well. Not cool! There’s still a big missing piece to Ingrid’s story! What went down at the foster home with teenage Emma? Something must have gone wrong, or Ingrid would not have erased all of Emma’s only happy childhood memories. We need those answers before Mitchell takes her final bow.
The Dec. 14 winter finale title, “Heroes and Villains,” doesn’t reveal much, but the episode that precedes it might. “Shattered Sight” will air on Dec. 7 and it may have an obnoxious name, but it could have amazing implications. A spell that makes everyone in Storybrooke see the worst in each other is coming, so finally, we’ll get some conflict out on the table. I have a hunch that even once the spell is over, everyone will have to deal with the truth they’ve just revealed. Serves them right. These fairy tale characters are way too nice, anyway. However, breaking the spell will probably mean either destroying or banishing Elsa and Anna’s not-so-beloved aunt. How could that come about?

There’s no mention about the Snow Queen in the plot, but they wrote again “Elizabeth Mitchell (“Lost”) Guest Stars as the Snow Queen” at the beginning of the press release, which is cool!

4x09 Fall - Elizabeth Mitchell - Once Upon A Time - Snow Queen
This is from an interview with Jennifer Morrison:
Twisted Sister: We knew that the Snow Queen (Elizabeth Mitchell) was going to send a flurry of drama to Storybrooke this season, but we had no idea that she was going start a thunderstorm of crazy. “Things are getting more intense in terms of realizing what’s going on with the Snow Queen and her plans, and why she’s been trying to get Elsa and Emma more ingrained in her life in some way,” Morrison explained.
“She’s on this bizarre crusade to just wipe out everyone else and have these two women replace the sisters that she lost,” the actress said of the Snow Queen’s evil plans. “She’s clearly not well. She’s extreme about it, and so we realize how intricate her plan has been, and how far back her plan goes. It’s all coming to a head at this point.”
Unfortunately, Morrison unveiled that the drama is not going to end anytime soon. “By episode nine and ten we’re still really struggling to overcome the big picture,” she admitted. “We’re winning some of the battles, but feeling like we’re still losing the war.”
To make matters even worse, the Snow Queen is fiercely determined to unleash a darkness that the citizens of Storybrooke have never seen before. “There’s definitely a lot of turmoil going,” she said. “The Spell of Shattered Sight, which makes everyone see the worst in each other, would mean everyone would basically destroy each other.”
Although we’re not going to reveal exactly when the spell hits, Morrison did tell us that evil is on the horizon. “It is coming and it does descend on the town,” she spilled. Thankfully Emma kept her powers!
