For the location where Hyperion Heights is located, see Seattle.


Lucy: You returned all the happy endings. And now my mom and all the others need you to do it again... The curse put most people in Hyperion Heights, but...
Henry Mills: I hear that's an up-and-coming neighborhood. Doesn't really sound like a curse to me.

"Hyperion Heights" is the first episode of Season Seven of ABC's Once Upon a Time. It was written by Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz, and directed by Ralph Hemecker. It is the one hundred and thirty-fourth episode of the series overall and premiered on October 6, 2017.

Synopsis

Henry leaves Storybrooke in search of his own story. Years later in another realm, he encounters a troubled Cinderella, changing the trajectory of his quest forever. When Cinderella's evil step-mother, Lady Tremaine, poses a threat, Henry discovers that following his heart will require him to make more difficult choices than he ever could have imagined. Years later, a young Lucy finds a disillusioned Henry at his home in Seattle, determined to make him remember his true self in order to defeat the curse afflicting the fairytale characters of "Hyperion Heights."[2]

Event Chronology

  • The Seattle events take place in October 2017,[22] before "A Pirate's Life". The opening scenes with Henry at work take place before, or concurrently with, the scene with Lucy on the monorail "The Final Battle Part 2". The scene where Lucy knocks on his door is the same as the scene from "The Final Battle Part 2", but shown from Henry's perspective. The remaining scenes take place after this scene.
  • The New Enchanted Forest flashbacks take place several years after "One Little Tear". The events leading up to the royal ball, and the scenes at the Prince's Castle take place before Cinderella's meeting with Tiana in "The Garden of Forking Paths", and after "Beauty". The scenes after the ball take place after Cinderella's meeting with Tiana, and before "A Pirate's Life".

Episode Connections

  • The slides featured in the beginning of the episode ("Once Upon a Time. There was a magical forest filled with fairy tale characters. One day a powerful curse trapped them in a city which had no magic. And each of them forgot who they really were. This is how it happened...") is similar to the ones shown at the beginning of "Pilot" ("Once Upon a Time. There was an enchanted forest filled with all the classic characters we know. Or think we know. One day they found themselves trapped in a place where all their happy endings were stolen. Our World. This is how it happened...").
  • Regina alludes to Henry graduating high school and thinking about going to college, which is explored in greater detail in "Is This Henry Mills?".
  • The reason why Henry decided to leave Storybrooke and how he got the magic bean is explained in "Is This Henry Mills?".
  • Who cast the new curse is revealed in "The Eighth Witch".
  • The new curse is broken in "Is This Henry Mills?".
  • Henry says that after he finished his storybook, he found hundreds of other storybooks in the Sorcerer's Mansion, like the stories he knew, but told differently. The first time Henry discovered other storybooks in the mansion was in "Heroes and Villains", where he found lots of blank books in a hidden room.
  • The scene where Lucy knocks on Henry's door is the same as the scene from "The Final Battle Part 2", but shown from Henry's perspective.
  • The reason why Drizella wanted to use magic so eagerly is explained in "Wake Up Call".
  • The first music that plays in the Prince's castle is the same music that plays in the King's Castle in "The Price of Gold". Also, the second music is played in the Camelot Castle in "The Price".
  • The reason why Jacinda still keeps her family how they were in the New Enchanted Forest (like Victoria being her stepmother, Ivy being her stepsister, Lucy being her daughter and Sabine being her best friend) is explained in "The Eighth Witch".
  • Henry has fake memories about losing his wife and daughter in a fire. In "True North", Emma lied to him about his father being a fireman and perishing while saving a family from a fire.
  • Jacinda says that Lucy wants to believe in fairytales because life is hard. This is similar to what Mary Margaret Blanchard says in "Pilot" and what Archie Hopper says about Henry in "The Thing You Love Most".
  • Roni's line about not having any regrets is a reference to Regina's speech to Peter Pan about not having any regrets in "Save Henry".
    • It is also a reference to lots of episodes of Season Six, where Regina suffers from what she did in the past and has regret about it.
  • How Alice knows Rumplestilstskin is revealed in "Beauty".
  • According to Jacinda's cursed memories, she had a fling with a guy, which resulted in Lucy. She is "reunited" with him in "Pretty in Blue".
  • Jacinda regains custody of Lucy in "Pretty in Blue".

Props Notes


For Emma Swan, life has been anything
but a happy ending. But when she's reunited with Henry - the
son she gave up for adoption ten years ago - on the night of her 28th birth-
day, everything changes. The now 10-year-old Henry is in
desperate need of Emma's help because he believes from
reading a book of fairytales that she's the
daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming - who sent
her away from the Enchanted Forest to be
protected from a curse that was enacted by the Evil Queen.


Emma initially refuses to believe a word of Henry's story
but soon finds that his hometown of Story-
Brooke
, Maine is more than it seems. Because it's in Story-
brooke that all of the classic characters we know are
frozen in time with no memories of their former selves –
except for the Evil Queen, who is Storybrooke's mayor
and Henry's adoptive mother Regina Mills.


Now, as the epic "Final Battle" for the future of both worlds approaches, Emma will have to
accept her destiny and uncover the
mystery behind a place where fairytales are to be
believed.

    Note that Roni's contract says June 2018 (File:701Contract.png), but Adam Horowitz states in the above Tweet that the year on the prop was a mistake and it should have been dated 2017, not 2018. Also, in "Beauty", which takes place on October 31 on Halloween, Henry says, "Until last week, the only human contact I had was with my Swift riders", indicating that he met Jacinda, Roni and his other new friends in October, not June. In addition, in "Eloise Gardener", the concert tickets that Henry presents to Jacinda for their date later that night are dated "NOV1817" (File:707IsSpigolli.png) (in the lower left hand corner), meaning November 18, 2017.
