|2||02||In the Enchanted Forest, a young woman named Regina is forced, on her mother's wishes, to marry a man she does not love. In retaliation to gain her own freedom, she, with the help of Rumplestiltskin, banishes her mother through a looking glass. Through the looking glass, Cora travels into Wonderland and eventually gains power as the notorious Queen of Hearts.|
|W||05||After stealing a looking glass from Maleficent's castle, Anastasia and Will Scarlet arrive in Wonderland from the Enchanted Forest. However, they soon realize that their new life together is meager. They steal clothes and forge invitations to an upcoming royal ball, which ends disastrously after both are kicked out. Anastasia figures it'd be best if they returned to the Enchanted Forest, but before that, she wants to steal the crown jewels from the castle. The plan falls through when Anastasia betrays Will by accepting a marriage proposal from the Red King.|
|W||11||The day before the wedding, Anastasia is greeted by the Queen of Hearts. As they casually talk, Cora demonstrates her magic, but Anastasia informs her that the Red King frowns upon magic since it separates them from their subjects. Cora offers to teach her magic, but Anastasia, not wanting to start a marriage with a secret, respectfully declines. That evening, Will climbs up to the balcony of the castle, desperately pleading for Anastasia to meet him at their old wagon and run away together. Cora, however, had been eavesdropping on their conversation and she convinces Will to give up as Anastasia has decided to wed the Red King instead. Cora consoles him, and he asks her to take out his heart, to which she obliges.
Anastasia tries to leave the castle to meet up with Will when Cora shows her, using magic, the wagon's location, where Will is not there. Cora implies that Will stood her up and considers this part of Anastasia's life to be over since he will likely never trust or love her again. Heartbroken, yet believing her place is as a Queen, Anastasia tearfully collapses into Cora's arms. Eventually, Cora teaches her how to conjure fire by channeling all the unworthiness she feels as a person into power, and Anastasia successfully uses magic for the first time.
|W||12||Soon after, Will begins working in service to the Queen of Hearts as the Knave of Hearts. He has little choice in disobeying her since she possesses his heart and thus has full command over him.|
|W||01||As a young child, Alice leaves her world and visits Wonderland by chasing the White Rabbit and falling down a rabbit hole. While in Wonderland, she has many wonderful journeys and adventures.

As Knave is chasing the suspect, he is caught at sword-point. The criminal turns out to be a young girl, Alice, who has returned to Wonderland in order to prove to her father that it is a real place. She tells Knave that the charges against her are false, when all she tried to do was pick a weeping willow from the Queen of Hearts' garden, but instead she incurred the royal's wrath.
When he tells her about his lack of free will, Alice goes to steal his heart from the Queen's vault and later uses it to command him to stop trying to kill her. As a favor, Knave agrees to help her find proof of Wonderland's existence, and they then have a drinking contest at a tavern. Their friendship deepens when he tells Alice about his sister, Penelope, who died young. Alice returns his heart, deciding to find her proof alone, but Knave decides to help anyway and procures the White Rabbit for her. In the Queen of Heart's maze, he stays behind to distract incoming guards while Alice flees, homebound, with the White Rabbit in a bag.

Cora returns to Wonderland again after this amicable parting.|
|5||12||On her daughter's birthday, Cora is summoned by her husband, Henry to convince Regina to give up on revenge against Snow White.

Cora uses the looking glass to travel back into the Enchanted Forest and put a halt to Henry's plans. Later, when Regina tries to banish Cora back to Wonderland through the looking glass, Cora steals a box containing Henry, who was shrunken by Regina earlier on, as a way to ensure Regina will lose her beloved father.

Jefferson realizes he has been tricked and while Regina and Henry return home, he is forced to stay behind. Jefferson is brought by royal guards to the Queen of Hearts to answer for his crimes of trespassing and helping Regina. Though he cannot go home now that his transportation Hat is gone and in Regina's hands, the Queen of Hearts demands he make another one. Eventually, Jefferson spends a long period of time in a crazed and obsessed mindset making thousands of hats, with none having the portal opening capability his old one had. He becomes known as the "Mad Hatter".|
|W||01||While running away from the guards, Alice shrinks herself with a piece of mushroom stolen from the Caterpillar, and hides in a bottle found on the ground. Inside the bottle she finds a genie, who quickly proves to be an ally, introducing himself as Cyrus and welcoming her into his home. The pair connect.|
|W||02||The pair leave Cyrus's bottle and he informs her that, because Alice has found his bottle, he can now grant her three wishes. Alice releases the Rabbit from her bag and he leaves. When Alice is unsure of what to wish for, Cyrus flirtatiously offers to walk with her, in order to give her suggestions. Later, the two are seen dining together. Cyrus tells Alice that a dangerous man named Jafar is searching for him. Growing closer, Alice asks Cyrus to teach her swordplay, and he accepts. He also demonstrates to her the art of magic paper, creating an origami rose which blossoms to life as if it were real. True to his word, Cyrus teaches Alice how to fight with a sword. He tells her to always know your opponent. Alice replies that she think she knows Cyrus's weakness, as she leans in to kiss him. Cyrus kisses her back.
A short while later, at the Tum Tum Tree, Alice tells Cyrus that she would love to visit the Boiling Sea with Cyrus. Cyrus is distant, however, and tells Alice that it's time for her to make her wishes. When Alice doesn't understand, Cyrus tells her that he's falling in love with her, but that he cannot allow that to happen because eventually she will make her three wishes and move on with her life. Alice comes up with a solution - to never make her wishes. Cyrus agrees and they then decide to bury his bottle together. Having found a secluded spot to bury it, Cyrus asks Alice if she is sure she wants to do this. She tells him she believes their love is powerful enough to give them their freedom, and they agree to never leave each other. They bury the bottle. Unbeknownst to them, the White Rabbit witnessed the pair burying the bottle, while he was running late on his way to visiting his wife.
|W||08||The White Rabbit expresses his concerns about Alice to Cyrus, believing that she will always be in danger as long as she's with Cyrus. The White Rabbit persuades Cyrus to think about Alice's safety, even if it means he must part from her to ensure it. Cyrus goes to the Caterpillar to settle a deal for making people disappear. As payment, he gives the Caterpillar his compass, which has the power to always point in the direction of the thing or person the user desires to find. In return, the Caterpillar makes an invisible hideout for Cyrus in the Outlands. Later, Cyrus takes Alice there, but talks to her first about his fears that she will always be in danger because of him. Alice convinces him that she can handle herself no whatever what life throws at them. The only thing she doesn't wish is to be apart from him. Since she is willing to stay, he leads her into the hideout, which he decides can serve as a home for them.|
|W||01||Cyrus and Alice visit the Boiling Sea together, and Alice marvels at its beauty. Cyrus then proposes to Alice and she accepts eagerly. Cyrus shows Alice his magic necklace, now glowing red, saying to her that their hearts are entwined. Just when they lean in again to kiss, they are interrupted by a group of the Red Queen's guards, as well as the Queen herself. The Queen apologies for interrupting before Cyrus and Alice begin to take on the guards - Alice putting her newfound sword skills to use. When they have all of the guards knocked down, the pair share a triumphant moment before the Red Queen waves her hand, pushing Cyrus off the cliff and tumbling into the Boiling Sea. Alice cries out to him, helplessly. Unknown to Alice, Cyrus falls onto Jafar's magic carpet, and not into the Sea, as Jafar brings him into his clutches.|
|A short amount of time passes as Alice returns to her world and Regina readies to cast the Dark Curse.|
|2||09||Hook is sent to Wonderland by Regina to kill Cora. Upon arriving, he is captured by the guards and brought to the Queen of Hearts. She tells everyone to leave herself and Hook alone where she admits to him that she is Cora. He attempts to use his magically enchanted hook to take out her heart, but it is not there. Instead, she extracts his heart and begins putting pressure by squeezing it, though she does not kill him after she receives information from him about Regina. She offers him the choice to travel back to the Enchanted Forest with her so he, too, can be affected by Regina's casting of the Dark Curse, which will erase all of his memory, so he will not be able to remember his feud with Rumplestiltskin. He declines, so instead Cora gives him the chance to help her murder Regina, and in exchange she will aide Hook to be spared from the curse's effects. He agrees, and the two leave Wonderland for the Enchanted Forest.|
|The Dark Curse is cast|
Time is frozen for 28 years
|W||01||Alice is alerted by the White Rabbit that Cyrus is alive, so she returns to Wonderland along with the Knave of Hearts to try and find him. When first arriving, Alice and the Knave get stuck in the Mallow Marsh . The Rabbit informs Alice that the Dormouse saw Cyrus at the Mad Hatter's house, before leaving to retrieve help for Alice and the Knave, but the two eventually manage to get out on their own. When the Knave tells Alice he's disinterested in helping her, since they have no proof Cyrus is alive, Alice offers to give him one of her wishes as payment, and he accepts. Alice and the Knave venture into the Tulgey Woods, where the Hatter's house is located. After a frightening encounter with the Cheshire Cat, they arrive safely to find an empty house. Disappointed, Alice ventures outside where she finds Cyrus's glowing magic necklace in the grass. She is reassured that if it survived, then maybe Cyrus did as well, and she continues along her journey with the Knave.
Elsewhere, at the Red Queen's castle, whilst retrieving help for the Knave and Alice, the Rabbit meets up with the Red Queen, where it is revealed that he is spying on the pair for her. The Queen later meets with Jafar, who tells her he needs to find Cyrus's bottle and make Alice use her three wishes. Jafar is readying to kill the Queen, when she convinces him not to, saying that he needs her help. Later, in Jafar's dungeon, Cyrus awakes trapped in a cage.
|W||02||Alice wakes up the Knave early the next morning to continue on their mission to find Cyrus. Alice tells him of her new plan - to find Cyrus's bottle and make a wish in order to locate him. They soon arrive at an obstacle - crossing the ocean - until Alice provides a solution, which is to take the ferry across. The ferry, Silvermist, soon arrives, much to the Knave's annoyance, as the two have had altercations in the past. The trio make it halfway across when Silvermist drops the Knave into the ocean, causing them to have to find alternative transportation in the form of riding on the back of a Mock Turtle. Elsewhere, Jafar pays a visit to the Red Queen's castle and tells her that if she cannot find the bottle for him, then she is wasting his time. The White Rabbit then visits the Queen and tells her that he knows where the bottle is hidden. In Jafar's dungeon, Cyrus has an idea to send a note to Alice, in the form of an origami bird made of magic paper.
Jafar, having false knowledge of the bottle's whereabouts from the Queen, begins searching for it at the Tum Tum Tree, just as Alice and the Knave arrive. Alice is not worried, however, as she reveals to the Knave that the bottle is not actually hidden there, and that she lied to find out who they are up against. Alice and the Knave then travel to where the bottle is really hidden, only to find that it has already been dug out of the ground. Jafar later confronts Cyrus about the bottle's whereabouts, when the Red Queen reveals to him that she has it. Alice is convinced that Cyrus has moved on, since Cyrus and Alice were the only two that knew where the bottle was hidden, until she receives his note. She replies back with a note of her own, "I'm coming for you".
|W||03||Will comes up with an idea to use a magical item called a "forget me knot", which can peer into the last major moment that happened in any given place, to see who dug up Cyrus's bottle. After making a deal with The Caterpillar for its location - who believes that no matter what, he will win - Alice and Will discover the knot at the house of the cannibalistic Grendel. They're immediately captured by Grendel, who uses the knot to view a beautiful young couple that used to live in the house. Will realizes that Grendel is the man in the knot, and tries to sympathize with him by recounting his own love lost. He fails, but Alice uses the sharp edges from her wish gems to cut the rope. Before they can escape, they're stopped by the Bandersnatch, a monster that Jafar and the Red Queen sent for Alice to get her to use her wishes. Alice and Will save Grendel from the Bandersnatch and use the knot to trick it, and since they saved Grendel, he lets them go. Alice and Will use the knot to discover that the White Rabbit dug up the bottle and delivered it to the Red Queen, angering Alice.
Jafar and the Red Queen arrive at Grendel's house. The Red Queen reveals that she turned Grendel into what he is - after he stole the knot from her - and promises that she can reunite him with his wife if he reveals how Alice escaped. He does, telling them that the Knave of Hearts is travelling with her, but Jafar then kills him in return after receiving this information.
|W||04||Jafar tells the Red Queen to get rid of the Knave. Alice and Will evade the Caterpillar's men but get split up. Cyrus begs a chicken breast off the guard in order to get the wishbone. Will is saved from his pursuers by the Red Queen so that she can capture him. Looking for Will, Alice meets Lizard. The guard finds the broken wishbone and half of it is thrown to the bottom of the cavern. Alice and Lizard work out a plan to save Will. The Red Queen offers Will a way out of Wonderland but he refuses to take it. Alice and Lizard find that Will is scheduled for execution. At the Red Queen's castle, Alice rescues Will just in time and they try to escape through the maze with Lizard's help. Jafar and the Red Queen corner the three. Alice uses one of her wishes to save Will from Jafar. She refuses to use another to stop Jafar's torture of her. He turns Will to stone to torture her heart. Alice asks for the Red Queen's help, but she refuses. Cyrus uses the magic of the wishbone to cut an opening in his cage.|
|W||05||The Red Queen makes a deal with Alice to deal with Jafar and get Alice to Cyrus. She will give her Cyrus if Alice gets her the dust she seeks. Cyrus shows his fellow captive his hole and tells them they will escape. The Red Queen takes Alice to the Great Divide to begin her quest for the dust. Cyrus and the old man discuss their escape plan. Tweedledee brings the White Rabbit to Jafar. Cyrus escapes his cage and wrestles the guard. Alice tries to cross the cavern using her faith in Cyrus, but falls into its depths. The other prisoner sacrifices his own freedom to give Cyrus a chance. Under threat from Jafar, the Rabbit tells Jafar that someone not in Wonderland matters to Alice. In the cavern, Alice sees a vision of her younger self who knocks the Red Queen into the cavern so that she can kill her. Alice refuses to do it and in doing so earns the dust. The Red Queen takes the dust from Alice and refuses to tell her where to find Cyrus. Secretly, Alice saved some of the dust. The Rabbit escapes from Jafar, sees Cyrus, lets him go, and finally agrees to help Jafar. Jafar asks him to dig a hole to another land. The Red Queen uses the stolen dust to free Will, but leaves before he can see that she did it. Alice uses her dust to find Jafar's tower.|

Jafar uses Edwin's blood to make a potion to impersonate Alice's father. Will tells "Edwin" to not give up on Alice. Jafar casts a spell sending a dragon toward them. Alice, Will, and "Edwin" escape into the woods. Alice saves "her father" from the dragon and offers to let him come up rescue Cyrus. Edwin tells the old man of his regrets with Alice. Alice tells Will that she knows that "Edwin" isn't her father. Jafar takes Edwin out of his cage to use as leverage against Alice. Alice uses her second wish to send her father home. Jafar visits his father, the former Sultan and his old prisoner. The Sultan tries to kill himself, but the carpet catches him. Cyrus awakens on the shore and begins looking for Alice.|
|W||08||Alice tells Will that there is one place in Wonderland that Cyrus will go for safety. Tweedledum finds his brother Tweedledee working for Jafar after hearing Cyrus through the Grape Vine. He tells all of this to the Red Queen. She discovers that Cyrus's bottle is missing. Alice decides they need the Rabbit in order to get away from Wonderland.

Alice visits the White Rabbit for help, but they find out that the Red Queen has the Rabbit's family. Alice decides they need to rescue the Rabbit's family. The Red Queen stops by her wagon where she had kept her old belongings and Cyrus's bottle. Jafar storms into the Red Queen's castle looking for her and finds Tweedledee's head in a box. He destroys her castle as he leaves. Will, Alice, and the White Rabbit check the wagon and find the Rabbit family. Jafar uses a spell to send a storm cloud to kill the Red Queen. Alice, Will, and the Rabbit arrive at the outlands and Alice's home to find Cyrus missing. Cyrus arrives and embraces her. Alice demands the Red Queen to tell her the truth before she'll leave.

As the Rabbit digs his hole, Will is hit by lightning, so he and Alice fall unconscious. Cyrus begs Alice to make her final wish. Will makes the wish and chooses to "end Alice's suffering." As a result, Cyrus is free, Alice is alive, and Will is now the genie in the bottle.|

Alice decides to follow the river downstream to find Will. While Alice is talking with Cyrus, Anastasia disappears, captured by villagers. Lizard gives one of her wishes to Will and he uses it to give drinks to everyone in town. Jafar gives Tweedledee a body in exchange for information about the Jabberwocky. Cyrus uses a piece of the Red Queen's dress and a locating spell to find her. Jafar forces his way into the Jabberwocky's cell. The villagers tied up Anastasia to leave her for the animals.
