TAKE A LOOK BACK AT HOW THE RESIDENTS OF STORYBROOKE HAVE FARED SINCE THEIR FAIRYTALE MEMORIES HAVE BEEN RESTORED, ON THE RETROSPECTIVE "ONCE UPON A TIME: THE PRICE OF MAGIC," SUNDAY, APRIL 14 ON ABC

Series Creators/Executive Producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz to Offer Some Inside Scoop on What's Transpired and What's to Come

ABC invites new and avid "Once Upon a Time" viewers to take a look at one of the most talked about and critically acclaimed shows. "Once Upon a Time: The Price of Magic" will explore the series in a way that will bring new viewers up to date -- but which current viewers will also find illuminating - in discovering the consequences the residents of Storybrooke have had to endure since magic was introduced into the town, and whether Mary Margaret's path has been tainted since learning that her heart has been darkened after she killed Regina's mother, Cora. Series creators and executive producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz will provide some inside scoop on the importance of family, the characters' journeys and the mythology of the show. They will also tease what's upcoming in the exciting final four episodes of the season. "Once Upon a Time: The Price of Magic" airs SUNDAY, APRIL 14 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Nothing is more important than family, and this season has shown just how close these bonds are, even between good and evil. Magic always comes with a price: the residents have come to discover just how true these words are ever since Mr. Gold introduced magic into Storybrooke when the curse was broken. Mary Margaret and Emma - mother and daughter reunited - were sucked into a portal that transported them to what was left of fairytale land. It was there that they met Mulan and Aurora, who helped them defeat Cora and Hook and enabled them to travel back to Storybrooke, reuniting them with Emma's father David and son Henry. But Cora and Hook also found a portal into town, and Cora set her sights on reuniting with daughter Regina. She also tried to find Rumplestiltskin's dagger in order to take him down and become The Dark One. Hook set his sights on killing Rumple, not for power but for revenge for killing his true love (and Rumple's former wife), Milah. Mr. Gold also set out to find his son Bae, which he did with the aid of Emma and Henry in New York. But much to everyone's shock, Bae turned out to be Emma's former love, Neal, who is also Henry's father. Upon returning to Storybrooke to find a cure for Mr. Gold, who was poisoned by Hook, Mary Margaret did something completely against her nature - she used dark magic to kill Cora - causing her heart to darken. And what plan does Greg Mendell, who has been recuperating in town since his car accident, have in store for the magical inhabitants of Storybrooke? Greg saw magic as a boy in the town and believes Regina may have killed his father. His price of magic may just be revenge.

DESCRIPTION:
(from ABC's press release, May 2013) Master storytellers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz ("Lost," "Tron: Legacy") invite everyone to Storybrooke, Maine, a small town that probably won't show up on one's GPS. To ensure that no one in fairytale land - especially Snow White - had anymore "happily ever afters," Evil Queen Regina cast a curse which trapped the fairytale characters, frozen in time, and brought them into our modern world. Although still alive, they had no knowledge of their former selves and were sleepwalking through life - ageless -- for 28 years, until their savior arrived in the form of Emma Swan. Unbeknownst to Emma, she was the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming who whisked her out of fairytale land and into our world as an infant to save her from the curse. Abandoned as a baby, Emma's life was anything but magical. When her 10-year-old son, Henry, whom she gave up for adoption years ago, appeared on her doorstep with a book of fairytales and told her a crazy story about how she's the prodigy of fairytale characters who are all trapped in a town called Storybrooke, she thought he was nuts. But curiosity got the better of Emma, and she brought Henry back to the town and soon found out that Storybrooke was more than it seemed. Regina, ever the control freak, had placed herself as Mayor of the town and was Henry's adoptive mother. Over time Emma began to see through the cracks of the curse, believed that the stories were true and was finally able to break it. Reality and myth merged as the fairytale characters began awakening once the curse was lifted and remembered who they were. But to their dismay, they weren't transported back to fairytale land. To make matters worse, Rumplestiltskin - aka Mr. Gold - decided to gain the upper hand in his power struggle with Regina and introduced magic into the town. But this is our world, and magic has a tendency to have unfathomable implications.
