Season 5 Episode 3, “Siege Perilous,” promises to enlighten us with the development of the brotherly friendship between King Arthur and Prince Charming, as well as challenge the relationship between Hook and Emma. We will see more of Regina’s struggle to become the new savior, and hopefully, another glimpse of Henry’s budding romance.
A sneak peek explains that only a hero can pull Excalibur from the stone. After it’s removed, then Emma can commence with snuffing out the light. Rumpelstiltskin tells her that she knows who the hero they need is. Could it only be Arthur? Could Regina, taking on the role as the new savior, be the one to do it?
In other clips, Emma has been seen attempting to gain Hook’s trust and perhaps persuade him to do something. Could he be the one she wants to try to pull Excalibur from the stone, or does she have something else sinister planned for him? Or, could it be that the part of her that is Emma still wants to be with him?
But wait, there’s more! In another sneak peek, Regina and Zelena are seen arguing over Zelena and Robin’s unborn child. It really brings the evil out of Regina. It makes me wonder what she was capable of doing to Emma in Camelot, what Emma would want her to be punished for, as she indicated at the end of the season premiere.
