The new season of Once Upon a Time will begin with the quest to save Emma from herself as the new Dark One, but the show will also introduce some new characters, like Brave‘s Merida and King Arthur, along the way.
In the new promo, we hear the announcer reveal that Merida (Amy Manson) will be teaming up with King Arthur and his knights to do their fair share in the battle of good against evil. We learned during San Diego Comic-Con that Merida will not only be connected to King Arthur, but to Emma as well. It should be interesting to see how the pair’s paths crossed and how both strong personalities will (or won’t) get along.
Take a look at the new promo below:

Although we heard Snow declare that she wouldn’t lose her daughter to darkness, Jennifer Morrison, who portrays Emma, admitted that playing the Dark One is actually kind of fun. “Emotionally it’s interesting because there’s something really fun and free about Emma in the darkness,” said the actress during our Comic-Con interview. “She’s just free of the gravity of what other people think, the gravity of worrying about saving people. There’s a lightness, in a sense, in her darkness because she doesn’t have to do the right thing and she doesn’t have to be the stronger, better person all the time. So there was a little bit of freedom in that that’s really fun.”
Once Upon a Time returns Sunday, September 27 at 8|7c on ABC.
