Once Upon A Time’s Jennifer Morrison~Emma spoiled to TV Line about this Sunday’s episode, “True North”, featuring The Blind Witch~played by Buffy alum Emma Caulfield. Morrison’s character, Emma, works to find the birth father of two Maine orphans before they are put into the foster care system; There fairytale counterparts being Hansel and Gretel.

“Since you can’t flash back to my life in fairytale land, because it never happened, they’re using Hansel and Gretel as they did Cinderella [in "The Price of Gold"] to reveal some of Emma’s backstory,” Morrison explains. “So what Emma goes through to try and help these children ends up becoming very personal for her, as her own life [as a foster kid] is in a sense revealed.”Jennifer goes on to spoil, “But everyone who is in fairytale land definitely has a Storybrooke counterpart, whether or not we see them immediately doesn’t mean they don’t exist.”
