Not much has been revealed about this episode aside from its name — “Chosen” — and the writers, Paul Karp and Brain Ridings.
The veteran series is currently on winter hiatus, expected to return March 2. OUAT season 7 rebooted the fan favorite into a completely different show. Bringing in a new book, new characters, and
recycled new plot-lines.
When the Once Upon a Time picks back up in March, Regina will be faced with the problem of saving her granddaughter as well as her son. If she breaks the curse, Henry will die. If she doesn’t, Lucy will. She doesn’t know what to do, but she’s got her big sister by her side to help her figure it out.
Once Upon a Time returns to ABC on Friday nights this March.
