Emma (Jennifer Morrison), Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), Regina (Lana Parilla), Snow (Ginner Goodwin), Charming (Josh Dallas), Zelena (Rebecca Mader), and Henry (Jared Gilmore) will take the musical leap.

Unfortunately, Rumple (Robert Carlyle) and Belle (Emilie de Ravin) will not show off their vocal range on any of the original eight tracks. It's definitely a major bummer!

2. There are several flashbacks throughout the episode.

Hooray for young Emma! There are more glimpses into Ms. Swan’s childhood and some things from the past will come full circle by the end of this musical extravaganza.

We’ll also travel back to the Enchanted Forest where everyone is in sync melodically.

3. Snow gives Emma something very, very special for her big day.

When Emma’s feeling a bit indecisive and confused, her mom steps in and presents her with the perfect solution. It’s a very touching mother-daughter moment to say the least.

4. Snow is responsible for everyone bursting into song.

After Snow wishes upon a star, the entire kingdom must sing out their feelings. Ugh, this woman.

5. The Evil Queen is infuriated by all the singing.

Even though she’s royally ticked off, the Evil Queen belts out her rage because she has no other choice. Oh, this is a truly remarkable sight, Oncers. You will not be disappointed.

6. The Black Fairy is still hellbent on winning The Final Battle.

Nothing ever comes easy for the residents of Storybrooke, and tensions are amplified thanks to the ominous presence of the Black Fairy. Clearly, this big bad still has a few tricks up her sleeve.

7. Regina and Zelena have several conversations without hurling insults at each other.

It’s a real miracle, Oncers! These former villains are finally learning what it means to be siblings. Who knew they could replace all those scowls with such sweet smiles?

8. Emma and Henry share an important mother-son moment.

The Truest Believer is back in full swing, y’all. It’s been a while since Emma and Henry shared a heartfelt moment, and this scene will give you serious Season 1 nostalgia. When everything comes crashing down, Henry always finds a way to bring Emma some clarity.
