barbara hershey lana parrilla once upon a time 'Once Upon a Time' Season 2: Barbara Hershey returns in 'We Are Both'“Once Upon a Time” Season 2 hasn’t even debuted yet, but we’re already looking forward to the second episode, when Barbara Hershey returns as Cora, mother to the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla).

The episode two description reads:

“We Are Both” – While Regina continues to find a way to regain her magical powers, David continues his quest to uncover the whereabouts of Mary Margaret and Emma; and the seven dwarves discover what happens when any of the townspeople try to step past the city limits of Storybrooke. Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was, as her wedding day to King Leopold approaches, Regina is confronted by a man of magic who promises to help her become independent and break free from her mother Cora’s (Barbara Hershey) clutches.

Interesting. We’re very curious as to why David has to find Emma and Mary Margaret — what happens to them in the premiere that makes them disappear? And just what does happen to the townspeople when they try to leave Storybrooke?

“Once Upon a Time” premieres Sunday, Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. ET/PT and the second episode airs Sunday, Oct. 7, on ABC.
