Synopsis

Victoria strikes a deal with Weaver in an attempt to free herself from jail and wake Anastasia, but the cost of saving one life could mean the loss of another. In a flashback, we learn Lady Tremaine's surprising connection to another classic fairytale when Mother Gothel offers to help her family. Meanwhile, Jacinda and Nick share an exchange that could alter her future with Henry.[2]

Event Chronology

  • The New Enchanted Forest flashbacks take place over the course of at least seven years, before "Eloise Gardener".
    • The first flashback scene takes place while Anastasia and Drizella are still young girls. The rest of the flashback scenes take place six years later, until Drizella's birthday party. The last flashback scene, at the frozen lake, takes place after the opening flashback with Anastasia and young Drizella in "Sisterhood", and at least one year after Cecelia left for New Wonderland.[6]

Popular Culture

  • When Ivy tells Victoria that "Orange looks better on the women on that Netflix show", she is making a reference to the comedy-drama series Orange Is the New Black.
  • Ivy mentions that her mother has "no money, no lawyer, no Chanel". Chanel is a famous French high fashion house.
  • Weaver shows Victoria a set of handcuffs and says that they're not exactly Tiffany's, a reference to the American luxury jewelry retailer.
  • Hook responds to Victoria's explanation of how she utilized her own determination to get what she wants in life by saying he "didn't ask for a TED talk." A TED talk is a type of conference where people share stories on-stage with the purpose of engaging their audience in a topic or idea.
  • Sabine describes Weaver's dagger as "something out of a Tim Burton movie", a reference to the American filmmaker known for his dark, gothic, eccentric and quirky horror and fantasy films. Among Burton's films is the 2010 adaptation of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
