On-Screen 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.

  • Henry reads a portion from the book to Lucy from the scene when Henry is in the hospital and Emma gives him True Love's kiss. It reads:
"Every curse can be broken, you just need belief. Maybe the help of your family. It took time but Emma learned that. And when she did, she knew she could believe in anything if it would save her child's life."
("The Eighth Witch")
