Once Upon a Time Sneak Peek: Emma Gets Drawn Into a Brave Battle

Emma Swan may be getting into the ring with a Brave new opponent.

In the above sneak peek from Sunday’s Season 5 premiere of Once Upon a Time (ABC, 8/7c), the potential Dark One meets the Pixar film’s red-haired heroine Merida (played by Atlantis‘ Amy Manson) during a far from friendly encounter.

With both women after the same thing to save themselves or their loved ones, the archer is “willing to fight,” executive Adam Horowitz says. But for Emma, being labeled the thing she fears she has become might hurt more than any physical wounds.
