Once Upon a Time Video: How Will Zeus Help Hades Battle the Heroes?

The welcome to Storybrooke will a chilly one for Hades and his OTL Zelena, as revealed in this sneak peek from Sunday’s Once Upon a Time (ABC, 8/7c).

In Season 5’s antepenultimate episode, “Last Rites,” Emma, David, Regina, Robin and Henry are finally back home and reunited with Snow, though they still have to contend with Hades, who continues to deceive Zelena about his agenda. In the clip above, Hades is (seeeeeeeemingly) poised to turn himself in to the locals, but Zelena pulls him back, suggesting they instead clutch onto their happy ending and fend off the haters. (Hade’rs?)

To that end, Hades has a special something handed down from his brother Zeus that could help in this brewing civil war. (Oops, wrong corporate synergy!) Press play above to see what it is.

Elsewhere in the episode, Hook does his best in the Underworld to take down Hades, by looking for the missing storybook pages, while Regina and Robin take a more direct approach in battling the baddie, leading to a showdown that will “leave our heroes forever changed” (says the synopsis).
