Welcome back... Regina.
Ivy to Roni

"Wake Up Call" is the sixth episode of Season Seven of ABC's Once Upon a Time. It was written by Jerome Schwartz & Jane Espenson, and directed by Sharat Raju. It is the one hundred and thirty-ninth episode of the series overall, and premiered on November 10, 2017.


Feeling like a third wheel as Henry and Cinderella's relationship strengthens, Regina is surprised to find herself needed by Drizella, who is searching for magic. But when a brutal truth is revealed, it could lead Drizella down a dangerous path. In Hyperion Heights, Roni seeks Weaver's help in finding answers, and Tilly offers Rogers some intriguing advice concerning Eloise Gardener.[2]

  • When Roni takes out her baseball bat, Henry says, "Hey, hey, slow down there, Babe Ruth", a reference to the famous American baseball player whose career spanned over twenty years in the first half of the twentieth century.
    • Henry also says, "Can we at least look into it before it's clobberin' time?". "It's clobberin' time" is the famous battle cry of the Marvel superhero the Thing from Fantastic Four.
  • Like Henry says, the song he's playing on his stereo is "Save it For Later" by the British band The English Beat (known as The Beat outside North America).
  • When Henry lists up things from the 80s which he likes, he mentions filmmaker John Hughes, the English rock band New Order and the English singer and musician Adam Ant.
  • Ivy refers to Roni's friends as Roni's little "Avengers" assembly, a reference to the comic book superheroes from Marvel, which is owned by Disney.
