The Evil Queen Battles Malifecent For the Curse on 'Once Upon a Time' (VIDEO)

Last week saw the Evil Queen unleash her curse upon the Enchanted Forest on 'Once Upon a Time' (Sun., 8PM ET on ABC). This time around, we took a step back from the black cloud to see what lengths she went to in order to be able to cast such a powerful and all-encompassing curse. First, she had to re-acquire it from Maleficent, from 'Sleeping Beauty.' Cleverly, they said that the apple that enchanted Snow White to sleep was a faulty spell concocted by Maleficent, based on the spell she put over the entire kingdom in her fairy tale.

'Once Upon a Time's' Giancarlo Esposito on the Magic Mirror and Evil Queen's 'interesting relationship'

"Once Upon a Time" is introducing a new character in Sunday night's (Oct. 30) episode - the Magic Mirror, played by Giancarlo Esposito ("Law & Order," "Breaking Bad"). He tells Zap2it how he's working to make his dual characters very different and teases what's to come for Emma Swan."The Magic Mirror is a character who is under the Evil Queen's thumb. He tells her the truth but in a very interesting, snide and challenging way because she can't hurt him anymore," says Esposito. "You don't really know how he got in the mirror, but you know that that is his world that is inescapable for him. He's able to have attitude wtih the Evil Queen where no one else can."We're sure the Evil Queen, played by Lana Parrilla, really appreciates that. But Parrilla's Mayor definitely does not have the same type of relationship with Esposito's Storeybrooke character."In Storybrooke, I play Sidney, who is the editor...

Once Upon a Time Exclusive Extended Sneak Peek: Emma's Still a Skeptic in Episode 2

ABC's new fairytale drama, Once Upon a Time , premiered to great ratings and we're hoping the audience was enchanted enough to tune in again this weekend.  In the premiere episode we were introduced to a slew of fairytale characters and their Storybrooke counterparts.  While the fairytale world may have been frozen in time, Emma's arrival in Storybrooke means that there's a chance that the curse can be broken and all of the city's inhabitants could regain their memories. There's only two problems with this situation.  The first is that the only person who believes this fairytale story is the adorable Henry.  The second is that Regina seems to retain her own memories of being the Evil Queen and will clearly stop at nothing to ensure that her curse is never broken. In the October 30 episode of Once Upon a Time , Emma is determined to remain in town until she's convinced that everything is alright with Henry, but Regina seems determined to do anything to run her out of town.  In fairytale world, we'll be getting an episode focused on the Queen and learn a great deal about the curse and how she came to develop it. The only hope right now is Henry, who is doing his best to convince Emma that she is, in fact, the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming (and making sure she doesn't eat any of Regina's "evil apples").  Below is an extended sneak peek for Sunday's all new episode of Once Upon a Time, courtesy of ABC.
