What has the ability to reduce the Dark One to tears in an instant? A relic from his childhood, apparently.

In this new sneak peek clip from Once Upon a Time’s upcoming 3×01 season premiere (the show returns on Sunday September 29th) Rumpel (Robert Carlyle) sends Pan an unambiguous message regarding his intentions in Neverland.

However, those of who who may have assumed Rumpel’s magic to be far superior to Pan’s might have to think again, as Rumpel freely admits that going up against Pan will lead to his own death.

However, as rescuing Henry is Rumpel’s only real objective, and one he isn’t likely to be turned away from pursuing, this may well prove be a war of attrition that could hurt Pan in other ways.

Catch Once Upon a Time’s Season 3 premiere “Heart of the Truest Believer” Sunday September 29th on ABC.
