ABC has released the official synopsis for the January 13th episode of Once Upon A Time, "The Outsider". After Once's amazing return, next week is shaping up to be equally as awesome as Belle stumbles into unexpected danger.
- Mr. Gold finds an unwilling test subject to see if a spell he has concocted will allow him to cross the border of Storybrooke — without losing his memory — and go in search of his son, Bae;
- Belle stumbles upon a vengeful Hook in the Storybrooke harbor whose main goal is to eradicate Rumplestiltskin; and Mary Margaret and David go house hunting in search of a bigger place to live.
- Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was, Belle meets Mulan as the two set out to slay a fearsome beast called the Yaoguai, who has been ravaging the land.
