*SPOILER* #OnceUponATime: 6x11 "Tougher Than The Rest" Official Recap!

Calling all Oncers!!

Our beloved Storybrook family has finally returned to our TV screens after a long 4 month Winter Hiatus!!

Let's begin, shall we? Once Upon a Time aired this past Sunday, March 5th, 2017 at 8/7c. It was revealed during the Mid-Season Finale that Gideon, the son of Belle and Rumple, was the cloaked figure destined to kill our Savior. Meanwhile, Emma and Regina acquired a magic bean that opened a portal for them to return to Storybrooke. Unfortunately, due to a certain Robin Hood stunning Regina in this "Wish Realm," Regina was too stunned to realize the portal was closing, therefore trapping her and Emma in the Wish Realm. In the 6B Premiere, Robin is discovered to be not Robin Hood, but Robin of Locksley, nothing other than a common thief. Back in Storybrooke, Killian, and David work together to stop Gideon's plan to kill Emma. While searching for a way home,

Emma encounters an old flame; August aka Pinocchio, who agrees to do his best to build a wooden wardrobe, much like the one that brought Emma to our world in the beginning. While trying to build such a portal, Emma and August encounter an older, pot-bellied Hook, who explains how the kingdom knows "Princess Emma" is missing, and he offers to duel August in an effort to take her back to the castle, as there is a handsome reward out for her return. Eventually, Older Hook is knocked out and magicked back to the Jolly Roger.

Emma and Regina, along with "Wish Realm" Robin are transported back to Storybrooke, via the enchanted wardrobe. Returning to Storybrooke, Emma's continuous vision of her fate clouds her mind as none other than Gideon appears before her. I don't want to spoil what happens next, but I will say that if Emma dies, Gideon will collect her power and become the Savior himself. In the end, Rumple states that "war is coming to Storybrooke".

6x11 "Tougher Than The Rest", the 6B Premiere aired on March 5th, 2017 on CTV at 8/7c.

The episode gained 3.2 million viewers and a 0.9 demo
