It looks like ABC’s Once Upon a Time is going to hit the ground running with its season 5 premiere this September.
Picking up just seconds after Emma sacrificed herself to save Regina from becoming the next Dark One (we’re not sure how Storybrooke would have survived that one) the opening moments show our bereft heroes contemplating their next move.
While Robin is disbelieving, and Mary Margaret and David are convinced there’s still goodness to be found in their child, only Regina seems to accept the full magnitude of their situation.
Hook meanwhile is determined to bring Emma back, even if that means facing off against whatever it is that she has become.
In this new sneak peek clip (catch the others through the link below if you’ve missed out), he picks up the dagger and does the unthinkable by summoning the Dark One.
What happens next surprises everyone except Regina.
Once Upon a Time returns on Sunday September 27 at 8/7c on ABC and we couldn’t be more excited!
