Once Upon A Time season 6 has gone on a brief hiatus and will return with episode 9 on November 27 at 8pm EST on the ABC network. The winter finale is titled Changelings and it will feature the various challenges faced by Wicked Witch of the West Zelena as Evil Queen tries to kill her.
The week-long hiatus for the fairy tale series is due to the scheduled live broadcast of the ongoing College Football countdown, pregame, halftime and postgame show, which will be aired from 9.30pm EST on Sunday, November 20.
When the show returns with a new episode of the sixth season, it will continue to feature the team up between Mr Gold and the Evil Queen. The official synopsis states that Robert Carlyle's character will ask the female antagonist to kill her sister. Her decision will change her relationship with Rebecca Mader's character forever. Will Zelena become the new dark one?
The short summary for the next episode also hints at troubled moments for Bella French. According to the description, she will seek Emma Swan and Captain Hook's help to steal squid ink that can immobilise her baby father forever. She does it in order to stop him from harming their son, but will end up making a sacrifice that affects the lives of everyone in Storybrooke.
In a Fairy Tale Land flashback, Rumplestiltskin will collect Jack and Jill's son as bait to lure a powerful being to him. On the other end, Jasmine and Aladdin might get their happy ending with the help of a genie-less lamp that could save Agrabah. It could also give her lover an opportunity to find a way to be her hero.
