It Will Include Flashbacks
Looks like we’ll be heading back to the Enchanted Forest for this episode. Before Emma is born, Snow White wishes upon a star, resulting in the entire kingdom singing their feelings.
Emma and Hook Will Have a Wedding Duet
The couple will share a special song together during their wedding ceremony, complete with a grand dance number.
It Will Make You Cry
Not only is the episode supposed to be all about Captain Hook and Emma’s big day, but it will also show just how far the town’s Savior has come. “For us,” the show’s creator Eddy Kitsis told TVLine, “the most important thing [about the wedding] is that it was intimate and that you really understood that this was a real milestone in Emma’s growth.” Yep, there will definitely be waterworks.
Emma’s Solo Will Be Extra Sentimental
The series really paid close attention to detail for this musical episode. The song, “Emma’s Theme,” is actually adapted from the character’s musical score throughout the past six seasons.
There Could Be a Few Bumps Along the Road
Even though true love usually overcomes all obstacles, the Black Fairy is still in town to cause trouble. “Weddings on the TV series Once Upon a Time traditionally are fraught with unexpected circumstances,” the show’s creator Adam Horowitz teased. “And this is no different.”
When It Airs
Captain Hook and Emma’s ceremony will take place when the musical episode airs on May 7.
