Once Upon a Time First Look: The Charmings Stare Daggers at Regina! Plus: Meet Snow's Mom

You’ve got a week-and-a-half until ABC’s Once Upon a Time resumes Season 2, but in the meantime here’s a flurry of photos from that next new episode.

In “The Queen Is Dead” (airing Sunday, March 3 aka the same day as Once’s PaleyFest panel), Mary Margaret and David — with the aid of Mother Superior — make it their mission to find The Dark One’s dagger first, upon discovering that Cora and Regina have their own, decidedly devious designs on it.

From the looks of it, a wish of Ginnifer Goodwin‘s may be coming true here. As she shared during my visit to Vancouver, where Once films, “Consistently Snow White — and even Mary Margaret, for some reason – has always chosen to be the bigger person [when it comes to Regina] and even at her own peril, and I don’t really understand the ‘even at her own peril’ part. It’s the part of the princess code I don’t understand, because at some point you’ve got to, like, have some balls and put an end to conflict.”

Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was, the Blue Fairy offers young Snow White (Bailee Madison) an “unconventional” enchantment that could help save her dying mother Eva (played by 24‘s Rena Sofer).
