Are you ready to learn more about Will? The Knave of Hearts gets his own episode tonight as we delve deeper into his backstory and what it was that broke his heart and caused him to become the thieving sarcastic gent he is today.
Read on for our recap of episode 3 of Once Upon A Time in Wonderland “Forget Me Not.”
Will and Alice continue their search for Cyrus’ bottle..or in this case..the person who stole it. In a plot point that is either lazy or super convenient, there just so happens to be a magical item called the “Forget Me Not”. This magical device can show whatever it was that last happened at a location. So, if these two were to possess it, they could see who stole the bottle.
The caterpillar does not have it but Will makes a deal with him to help secure it. Unfortunately, their plan goes to crap when Beowulf‘s Grendel makes an appearance and kidnaps them. Hope they’re ready to be dinner. He kind of looks like that guy from The Goonies.
The Grendel does possess the Forget Me Not and he’s using it to see the memory of his wife. It’s actually kind of sad and I feel bad for him. When Will’s charm fails to get them out, their plans are again disrupted when a new dangerous creature appears. Jafar and The Red Queen have concocted a plan to send one of Alice’s biggest fears to put her in danger. They are hoping this will cause her to use her wishes.
When the Bandersnatch shows up, the Grendel forgets all about his meal and has to deal with this distraction. Will is able to kill the creature and in turn, the Grendel allows them to take the Not. He is not long for this world. After getting whatever information he can out of him, Jafar kills him. Jafar just just not a likeable villain like Rumplestiltskin in Once Upon a Time.
After returning to the spot the bottle was last seen, they discover that the White Rabbit is responsible for giving the bottle to the Red Queen. Betrayal.
In the flashback to the Enchanted Forest, we again see Robin Hood and his Merry Men. Will is a member of this group and we learn that he is actually Will Scarlet. He joins up in the hopes of stealing from Maleficent.
They steal simple gold but Will steals the Looking Glass. It makes his girl and love of his life extremely happy. They can use it to go to a magical place called Wonderland!
Did we mention his girlfriend, Anastasia, is The Red Queen?
