"Shattered Sight" is the tenth episode of Season Four of ABC's Once Upon a Time. It was written by Scott Nimerfro and Tze Chun, and directed by Gwyneth Horder-Payton. It is the seventy-sixth episode of the series overall, and premiered on December 7, 2014.

Synopsis

Storybrooke is in a state of chaos with all the residents under the Snow Queen’s Spell of Shattered Sight at each other’s throats. Emma and Elsa race against the clock to free themselves of the ribbons and take down the Snow Queen and her curse. David can only watch when Regina clashes with Mary Margaret in an epic battle. Meanwhile, Gold gathers Belle and Henry as he prepares to leave town forever, and Will Scarlet looks to square his tab with Hook. Kristoff’s thick-headedness leads Anna to a heartwarming discovery.[2]

Recap

Mary Margaret, David, and Kristoff begin to argue amongst themselves in the police station because of the spell of shattered sight. Anna joins Elsa and Emma, and recalling how the spell was broken in the story, informs them that the only way to break the spell is to kill Ingrid. Leaving Neal with Anna, Elsa and Emma try to fight Ingrid at Any Given Sundae, but the love in the ribbons prevents them from hurting her. Emma theorizes that hate of the same magnitude could destroy the ribbons and they set off to find Regina, who was sealed up in her vault.

Emma removes Regina's shielding spell around her vault and deliberately provokes Regina into using a fire spell. The spell burns through the ribbons on Elsa and Emma and they flee after Emma delays Regina with magic.

Dearest darling daughters,
you need to know the truth about
why we went to this voyage.
It wasn't what we told you.
I wish we could be telling you
in person but alas that does not
appear possible.
Elsa, Anna, time is running out. I do
not know if your father and I
will ever get back to you
but I need you to know we
were so wrong. We were wrong to
tell Elsa to conceal her powers.
You must know this. I feel terrible.
This happened before and I
cannot let it happen again.
Elsa, Anna, I
don't know if your father and I
will ever get back to you,
but I need you to know we
were wrong to
tell Elsa to conceal her powers.
I feel terrible
that it happened before and I
can't let it happen again.
Years ago I made the same
mistake with my sister Ingrid.
She like you had ice powers.
I never told you about my
sisters Helga and Ingrid.
My sister Ingrid, like you, also had ice powers.
I never told you about
her or my other sister Helga, but I should have.
They
were beautiful and kind and
Ingrid they they were beautiful [sic]
and kind and wonderful and I [sic]
was fearful and I let that fear
guide me.
They were beautiful
and kind and wonderful, and I
was fearful. And I let that fear
guide me.
I made the mistake
of letting Ingrid hide when we
should have celebrated her for
how she was. I loved her so much.
I let Ingrid hide when I
should have celebrated her for
the person she was. I loved her so much.
In this crystal are the memory
of my sisters which I stole from
the people of Arendelle.
Please return them. My sisters
deserve to be known. In a
cave in the north valley, you will
find an urn that contains my
sister Ingrid. Please do what I
should have done years ago and
release her.
In this crystal are the memories
of my sisters, which I stole from
the people of Arendelle.
Please return them. My sisters
deserve to be known. In a
cave in the North Valley, you'll
find an urn that contains
Ingrid. Please do what I
should have done long ago and
release her.
She deserves to
be remembered and more
importantly like you, Elsa and
Anna, she deserves to be loved.
When you see her, please tell her
I love her and that I am sorry. Tell
her I would give anything to take
back what I did, to hold hands with
her just one more time.
When you see her, please tell her
I love her and I'm sorry.
I'd give anything to take
back what I did, to hold her hands
one more time.
All my love, mama.

    • Which episodes? Maybe Anna told her, if it was during the spell. Otherwise, I would chalk it up to her thinking happy thoughts.
    • I don't think Elsa got her memories back until right before Ingrid sacrificed herself.
