‘Once Upon A Time’ Recap: Rapunzel & Prince Charming Conquer Fears

I hope you love a good mystery because this week’s episode of ‘Once Upon A Time’ is full of them. The Wicked Witch is causing havoc in our world and in the enchanted forest, Rumpelstiltskin is not dead, and the rest of the fairytale gang are still trying to make sense of the last year. And did I mention that Rapunzel finally makes her big debut!

Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Regina (Evil Queen/Lana Parrilla) have teamed up to hunt down the Wicked Witch of The West after figuring out she’s the one responsible for the second curse that brought everyone back to Storybrooke, meanwhile we learned from the last episode that the witch is keeping Rumpelstiltskin prisoner, but for what?

OK, lets run down the clues. The witch is up to something and that’s why she is still keeping Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle) prisoner. We know that she needed his blood to open the safe in his antique shop. We know that she needed to retrieve something of great importance to her.
Flash back to fairyland, and we learn that Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) is losing something of great importance to him — his courage! After a man-to-man talk with Robin Hood (Sean Maguire), Charming heads off to find a magical root that will restore what he feels like he’s loosing day by day.

Back in our world the mystery and the chemistry between Hook and Emma is growing. Emma has since parted ways with Regina and is now hunting down the witch with the man who was once her antagonist. The two manage to follow the bread crumbs and stumble onto the witch’s property, however, just steps from finding Rumpelstiltskin, they are called away for save Charming who is fighting for his life in the woods against a powerful enemy — his very own fears!
