Once Upon a Time Season 5 Premiere Photos: Emma in the Enchanted Forrestby Clarissa / September 14, 2015
Emma Swan made the ultimate sacrifice to save her friends and parents when she became the new Dark One at the end of season 4 of Once Upon a Time. When the show returns for its fifth season this fall, we’ll be faced with “The Dark Swan”.
In the season premiere, which picks up right after the events of the season 4 finale (watch a sneak peek), Emma is transported to the Enchanted Forest. There she’ll be struggling to control her new dark urges as she sets out to find Merlin in the hopes that he can stop her full transformation. This will put her on the path to meet Merida (the warrior princess from Pixar’s Brave) and King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.
Meanwhile, back in Storybrooke, Emma’s loved ones must band together to save her, but finding her in the first place will “require the help of an unlikely ally,” according to ABC.
Don’t miss the season premiere of Once Upon a Time on Sunday, September 27 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
