The past has a special way of coming back to haunt the future. The residents of Storybrooke are sure to learn this lesson the hard way, if Zelena has anything to do with it. Check out the Top 5 Moments from Once Upon A Time's "Bleeding Through".
A Simple Séance
In an effort to figure out why Cora (Rose McGowan) abandoned Zelena (Rebecca Mader) years ago, Regina (Lana Parrilla), Emma (Jennifer Morrison), Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) held a séance to speak with Cora. They had to use the enchanted candle, which killed her, in order to open a portal to the other side.
Regina lit the candle and a blue portal opened above their heads. Regina begged Cora to make her presence known. Suddenly, the table moved. However, it was only Hook accidentally bumping his knee against it.
The portal closed and Regina believed they had failed to reach Cora. However, as everyone was leaving Regina’s mansion, the door magically disappeared without Snow, who stayed behind, or Regina noticing. It appears they did make contact with Cora.
A Battle Over The Heart
Under orders from Zelena, Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle) arrived at the spot in the forest where Regina’s heart was hidden. Robin Hood (Sean Maguire) and his merry men immediately went into defense mode when Rumpel demanded the heart.
Rumpel expressed his remorse for what he was about to do, and asked for the heart again. Robin Hood pointed his crossbow at Rumpel and warned his arrow never missed its target.
Once again, Rumpel asked for Regina’s heart. Robin Hood refused. At that moment, Robin Hood’s son Roland (Raphael Alejandro) appeared from the forest with some wood.
Rumpel spotted him and magically forced Roland to walk towards them. He stopped the boy by constraining him into the ground. Robin Hood fired his arrow at Rumpel, who stopped it in mid air. He pointed the arrow at Roland and reminded Robin Hood the arrow did not miss. Robin Hood had no choice but to relinquish Regina’s heart to The Dark One.
Snow and Regina chatted about Cora, and heard a strange noise. They investigated and got more than they bargained for.
Regina opened a door at the end of the hall, and it turned out to be the ghost of Cora spinning a wheel. The ghost lunged at Regina, and knocked her out of the way.
Ghost Cora charged at Snow, but Regina transported herself and Snow to another room. Ghost Cora followed them and continued her attack.
Regina held her off with magic for a bit, while Snow apologized for killing her. Regina vowed to protect Snow from Cora as long as she could.
She couldn’t keep her magic hold on Cora any longer and demanded to know what she did to Zelena. Cora sucker punched Regina and jumped into Snow’s body.
Cora showed Snow exactly what happened to Zelena. Regina magically pulled Cora from Snow’s body, and the rest of the Storybrooke residents rushed in the room.
Snow informed them of her newfound information. Belle (Emilie de Ravin) filled in the rest of the blanks with the time travel spell. The group realized the last thing Zelena needed to complete the spell is Snow’s baby.
Young Cora, Prince Leopold and Princess Eva
A young Cora managed to get Prince Leopold (Eric Lange) to fall in love with her, after her first love dumped her. She didn’t tell the prince she was already pregnant with Zelena while they were falling in love.
He wanted to marry her, but was already promised to Princess Eva (Eva Bourne). He planned to marry Cora, but Princess Eva had a different idea.
Princess Eva discovered Cora’s baby secret, when she overheard Cora and the baby’s father making a dastardly deal. The baby’s father demanded Cora get him enough money to live off of for the rest of his life, and he would keep her secret.
Princess Eva told Prince Leopold all about Cora’s secret meeting. Prince Leopold tried to give Cora a chance to confess, but she lied to him.
Princess Eva exposed Cora’s secret to Prince Leopold. Cora was caught red-handed with a valuable necklace in her pocket. Prince Leopold banished Cora from his sight, and agreed to marry Princess Eva. Later on, Cora gave birth to Zelena. She gave her up, because she wanted more than just a miller’s daughter. Now that’s cold-blooded.
Robin Hood sat by a campfire, and Regina appeared. He apologized for giving away her heart, and vowed to get it back. Regina didn’t say a word and pulled him into a passionate kiss. All is forgiven.
