Once Upon a Time Preview: How to Corrupt a Hero

by at .

In between Neil Patrick Harris singing to open the 2015 Academy Awards and Birdman taking home the top honor of Best Picture, ABC aired a new teaser for Once Upon a Time last night.

The beloved drama finally returns after a lengthy hiatus on Sunday, with the latest promo previewing quite a drastic change for heroine Emma Swan.

Via voiceover, we hear Rumplestiltskin speaking on "three ways to corrupt a hero," informing incoming villains Maleficent, Ursula and Cruella that there's only one way to guarantee themselves their "happy endings."

They must find someone who can be "molded" into taking a walk on the "dark side."

And to whom is Rumple referring? The camera then pans to Emma standing in front of the Queens of Darkness and letting slip a very un-Savior-like smirk.

GULP!

Once Upon a Time Season 4 Episode 13 will be titled "Darkness on the Edge of Town" and it will air on March 1 at 8/7c.

You can always watch Once Upon a Time online at TV Fanatic if you need to catch up before this return.
