’Once Upon a Time’ Season 7 premiere spoilers – 5 most shocking reveals
2 A different realm, a different love story
Next, we see Henry, now all grown up and played by Andrew J. West, on his motorcycle who crashes into Cinderella in a scene that is supposed to mirror the first encounter between Henry’s grandparents, Snow White and Prince Charming. Although the chemistry between the two is strong, that doesn’t stop Cinderella from punching Henry in the face and stealing his motorcycle in the process.
3 The ball twist
It appears that Cinderella used the motorcycle to get to the ball to kill the prince who took everything from her. But Henry soons find her, and already in love, proposed that they go to a place where everybody gets their fresh start.
Cinderella, as fierce as she is, refuses and heads off to find the prince instead. Suddenly, Henry is starting to feel dizzy from the drink the waitress gave him earlier that night – the waitress who is Alice from Wonderland (and other places as she eagerly likes to point out). It appears that she is on a mission (given by Rumplestiltskin by the way) to stop Henry from interfering with Cinderella’s story.
Meanwhile, Cinderella finally meets with the prince. But instead of killing him, she changes her mind. Unfortunately, the prince is stabbed anyway by none other than Lady Tremaine, Cinderella’s evil stepmother who then blame the murder on Cinderella. But Henry shows up just in time to save her from the guards and then tells her to meet him at the place they first met.
However, once Henry gets to this place, Cinderella isn’t there. Then, as he finds her glass slippers, Henry decides to look for her instead of going through the portal.
4 A mysterious visitor
Meanwhile, in the real world, Henry drives a taxi. Then, we get to see that he is also a writer with a severe case of writer’s block. And this is where Lucy shows up on his doorstep claiming to be his daughter. She urges him to go with her back to Hyperion Heights – a place where all the cursed fairytale characters are, under a control of Victoria Belfry (aka Lady Tremaine), but Henry doesn’t believe her. She eventually steals his laptop with the message that he must come to Ronnie’s in Hyperion Heights to get it back.
