once upon a time season 2 sleeping beauty demon 'Once Upon a Time' Season 2 premiere: Six things to look forward toWe’ve seen the Season 2 premiere of “Once Upon a Time” and let us tell you, fans — it’s fantastic. The show comes back with an absolute bang and here are six things you can look forward to.

  • The episode picks up immediately after the purple haze rolls into town. We’re not going to lie — we shed a few tears at the reunions between some of the characters.
  • As we saw in a preview clip of the episode, Emma is not ready to deal with her parents just yet. She’s got some issues to work out, while Mary Margaret is trying hard to rein in her over-the-moon-ness at finding her daughter.
  • Fairytale Land introduces us to Prince Phillip, Aurora (Sleeping Beauty, pictured above) and Mulan. They fight a soul-sucking Dementor and steal its amulet, which then makes an appearance in Storybrooke. One guess as to who has the magic amulet.
  • Best line: “Maybe I don’t need answers. Maybe I just need to punch you in the face.”
  • The “Beauty and the Beast” theme between Belle and Mr. Gold continues, which is just lovely.
  • And finally, the episode 2 description tells us that David is on quest to find Mary Margaret and Emma. We can’t spoil for you what happens to them, but it’s an awesome set up for episodes to come.

“Once Upon a Time” premieres Sunday, Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
