In an attempt to find out what really happened in the past, Regina casts a simple ritual to summon her mother, Cora, after the Wicked Witch succeeded in stealing her heart. In the Enchanted Forest during the past, a man who claimed to be a prince asked for young Cora’s hand in marriage, only to get tricked, leaving her with a child.
In order to move forward with her wicked plans, Zelena lets the Dark One off his leash to get what she wanted. Will they succeed or can Regina stop them before they can move on? Meanwhile, Regina uses an old relic to do a simple ritual that will hopefully give answers from the one person who really knows her past.
