With the cold, came the darkness this week in Storybrooke. There was also someone else to fear in town. Check out the Top 5 Moments from Once Upon A Time's "White Out".


Cold as Ice

After finding Anna’s (Elizabeth Lail) necklace, a very angry Elsa (Georgina Haig) vowed to find her sister. She declared no one would leave Storybrooke until Anna was found. Elsa formed a giant frozen wall around Storybrooke, and hid inside it. The wall caused a blackout in town, so Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and David (Josh Dallas) decided to investigate.

Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) showed up at the wall to help, and Emma went inside. She found Elsa and the two began to chat. As Emma began to calm Elsa’s nerves, David rushed the wall with a gun. A frightened Elsa created an avalanche of sorts, and trapped Emma inside the freezing wall with her.

Emma began freezing to death, and Elsa did her best to keep her alive. David managed to help Elsa unfreeze a space in the wall, when he brought up his past with Anna to her. Emma was soon freed, and Elsa tagged along with our Storybrooke heroes.


Teach Me A Lesson

In the Enchanted Forest, Anna ended up on a familiar doorstep: David’s. He was a lowly shepherd, but she wanted to stay in his barn for the night. She knew an old friend of his, and shared with him she was on a secret mission. Anna gave David a fake name, but he wasn’t buying it.

After a showdown with Bo Peep (Robin Weigert) , Anna thought David should fight back against her. He thought Anna was crazy, but she convinced him otherwise. She offered to teach him to swordfight, so he could keep his farm.

David eventually agreed, and Anna gave him lessons on how to be the best swordfighter in the land. He soon became discouraged and wanted to give up. He decided to give Anna some food and send her on the way before Bo Peep returned.

Unfortunately, Bo Peep had gotten to Anna before he did. She branded Anna and hid her away. Bo Peep left, and David pondered what to do. He soon confronted Bo Peep and out fenced her and her minions.

David rescued Anna, and thanked her for the great lessons!

Bo Peep

Bo Peep

Bo Peep wanted her payment from David and his mother, but they didn’t have it. She threatened to take the farm, and David suggested he and his mother leave. Suddenly, Bo Peep used her shepherd’s crook and branded David and his mother. It was her way of keeping track of her flock. The shepherd’s crook contained a magical power to show the location of anyone who had been branded by it.

After defeating Bo Peep, David used the crook to find Anna in the Enchanted Forest. He attempted to do the same in Storybrooke, but was unsuccessful. In Storybrooke, Bo Peep is a butcher. She and David remain at odds, but he’s the one in power this time.


Let Me In

Henry (Jared S. Gilmore) received a letter from Regina (Lana Parrilla) instructing him not to visit her. She needed space and time to deal with her life. Henry wasn’t pleased, and felt a bit abandoned by the note. Emma tried to explain Regina’s possible feelings, but Henry didn’t want to hear it.

Before it was all said and done, Henry visited Regina’s house. Outside the door, he screamed that he refused to give up on her. He vowed to come every day until she opened the door.

Regina listened outside the door and couldn’t bear to hear Henry call for her any longer. She soon opened the door and let him back inside her heart. The two shared a cute a mother/son hug.

Snow Queen

New Queen

Emma took Elsa back to the ice wall to remove it. They chatted about its coolness (pun intended), and Elsa tried to take it down. However, her magic was powerless against the solid wall of ice. She wondered why the wall still stood, because she was the only person who has the power to freeze anything in Storybrooke.

The next scene shows Grumpy (Lee Arenberg) getting ice cream from a new woman in town. When he leaves, she soon freezes a bucket of liquid into ice cream. Then, she freezes an entire wall. Move aside Elsa, The Snow Queen (Elizabeth Mitchell) is coming for your crown.
