Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the baddest witch of them all? Will The Wicked Witch or The Evil Queen come out on top as Once Upon A Time’s Number 1 female villain? It’s Wicked vs. Evil! Check out the Top 5 Moments from OUAT’s “Witch Hunt”.


Flying Monkeys Multiply

Robin Hood (Sean Maguire) and his merry men made their way into Storybrooke, but chaos ensued the minute someone stepped foot over the town’s boundary. Little John (Jason Burkhart), Robin Hood’s main merry man, was immediately picked up and bitten by a flying monkey. The monkey eventually released Little John, but he was badly injured.

Robin Hood and Co. rushed Little John to the hospital, but the doctors could not help him. Little John began to violently shake and scream, and then, he grew a tail. The doctors backed away from Little John, and in the blink of an eye, he became a flying monkey. Everyone was shocked, as the newest flying monkey bolted out of the hospital. The moral of the story is not to get bitten by a flying monkey!


Regina and Emma Team Up

Emma (Jennifer Morrison) held a town hall meeting about the flying monkeys and the new curse. The citizens of Storybrooke were through with everything, and believed Regina (Lana Parrilla) was behind it all yet again.

Regina swore she was innocent this time, but no one believed her. Emma admitted she felt Regina was innocent earlier, but not anymore. The town continued to tear Regina down, until she shut them up.

Regina shouted if the town wanted her to be The Evil Queen, she had no problem obliging them. Suddenly, Regina created an earthquake and disappeared into a purple cloud of smoke.

Later, Emma met Regina in the Mayor’s office. Emma was angry Regina created an earthquake as a distraction. Regina told her to calm down, because she believed the town bought their little tiff. In reality, Emma and Regina are now working together to stop the flying monkeys, and dispel the curse. Will the two women be able to get along to save the town?

Wicked vs. Evil

After TEQ saved Robin Hood’s son, Robin Hood himself decided to help TEQ sneak into her castle to stop The Wicked Witch (Rebecca Mader). The two bonded, but TEQ was on a quest to cast a sleeping spell on herself. Robin Hood attempted to stop her, but she magically froze him in place.

TEQ went to her main castle room to cast the spell, but The Wicked Witch interrupted her. They traded barbs, and TWW revealed why she was able to break the blood magic curse placed on the castle originally. It turns out TWW is TEQ’s sister! TWW wanted to punish TEQ in the worst way. She hinted at having something up her sleeve, and left TEQ via broomstick to sulk in her anger.

A furious TEQ returned to Robin Hood, and promptly unfroze him. She informed him she was in a much better mood, because now she had someone to destroy. So, who will be the HWIC (Head Witch In Charge)?


Margaret Makes A New Friend

As Mary Margaret (Ginnifer Goodwin) sat in Granny’s diner and read baby books, a new Storybrooke face approached her. The two struck up a conversation about Mary Margaret’s impending bundle of joy, and the new Storybrooke resident mentioned she was a midwife.

The new face in town wore a large emerald necklace, which meant she had to be The Wicked Witch in disguise. She called herself Zelena, and an unsuspecting Mary Margaret had no idea of the danger she was in. Will Zelena attempt to steal Mary Margaret’s baby?


A Caged Surprise

Zelena carried a tray with a bowl of food through her backyard, and then steeped inside an underground cellar. She walked up to a cage, and asked whoever was trapped inside if he was hungry. A hand swiftly grabbed Zelena, and pulled her down to the ground.

The camera panned to reveal none other than Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle) inside the cage, with his hand tightly around Zelena’s arm! She giggled, and reminded him they have work to do.

A disgusted Rumpel ate his food, while singing “You Feed The Madness, And It Feeds On You”.  Clearly, Rumpel doesn’t have any powers, because otherwise he’d be out of the cage. How was Zelena able to bring him back? Can he regain his magic? Who will find him?
