A once spoiled girl who learned the error of her ways, this disgraced princess spent most of her adult life posing as the target for her evil stepmother's plans for revenge; Snow White, a courageous, skilled adventurer, goes on to meet the seven dwarfs and fall for Prince Charming, with whom she has a daughter. However, the Queen's evil curse traps her in Storybrooke, Maine, where Snow White lives as Mary Margaret Blanchard, a sweet and introverted elementary school teacher, until the curse is finally lifted and both personalities merge in a single person. At first, she is unhappy to have missed her daughter's entire childhood, but she and her husband eventually get a second chance at being parents in the form of their son, Prince Neal.

Regina is later approached by King Leopold, who is Snow's father, and he asks her hand in marriage. Regina does not want to accept, as she already has a love of her own, but Cora, Regina's mother, accepts on her behalf. Regina goes to the stable that night to tell her lover, Daniel, of this, and they decide to run away together. However, Snow witnesses them kiss, and is chased by Regina into the forest.

She tells Snow not to tell anyone about Daniel, and the young girl agrees, however, Snow is later approached by Cora, who manipulates her by stating that she loves her daughter, and Snow tells Cora not to make her get married, as she doesn't love her father.

As Regina is fitted for her wedding dress, Snow walks in and comments on her being the fairest of them all. They then talk, and Snow tells Regina that she's the one who told Cora of Daniel, but out of kindness, Regina tells the girl that Daniel ran away, and was a mere infatuation, not true love like Leopold is to her.

Regina explains he didn't leave her. This statement shocks Snow, so she asks what she means. Regina tells her that he was killed, horrifying her. Regina angrily tells Snow that he was killed because she couldn't keep a secret from her mother. Snow White is frozen with fear and then tries to explain herself, saying Cora was going to help her.

Ariel explains that the sea goddess Ursula grants a mermaid's wish to walk on land once a year, and that she'll have legs for twelve hours, which is hopefully enough time to make Eric fall for her. Snow and Ariel then attend Prince Eric's ball together where the mermaid and the prince really hit it off, however, he is leaving to travel the world the next morning, and Ariel will be unable to meet him as her legs will be gone by then. Ariel is then approached by Ursula (who is in fact Regina in disguise), and the supposed sea goddess gives her a magical bracelet that will allow her to keep her legs, and give the wearer a fish's tail. The mermaid forces it on Snow's wrist, thinking this will mean she no longer has to run from Regina, but Regina then shows up, ready to kidnap Snow. However, instead of going to Eric, Ariel stabs Regina in the neck with a fork she earlier collected at the ball; she then takes the bracelet off of Snow's wrist - something the wearer is unable to do - and swims away with her to safety. Knowing that Eric won't have left without waiting as long as possible for his true love, Snow tells her new friend to go to him, but when the mermaid arrives, she is unable to alert the prince of her presence as Regina has stolen her voice.

Despite Charming assuring her otherwise, Snow wants to visit Rumplestiltskin as he's able to tell the future, and so the two of them go to see him in his cell. He tells the royal couple that Regina shall enact a Dark Curse strong enough to rip everyone from the land, however, Snow and Charming's baby will be the people's savior who breaks the curse when she reaches the age of twenty-eight. In exchange for this information, Snow White gives up her unborn child's name to the Dark One: Emma. A meeting of the royal council is held at which the Blue Fairy tells Snow and the prince of an enchanted tree which, if fashioned into a vessel, should be able to take Emma into the new world safely, but the tree only has enough magic to carry one.

Snow remains skeptical, but the fairy assures her that she has hope, before flying away. Charming attempts to calm his wife, who's bent on the idea that this curse will destroy their future and all the plans they made, by telling her that life is full of twists and turns one never sees coming, and this curse is just another turn. Snow says that all she ever wanted was for them to raise their child, as that was supposed to be their happy ending, but Charming tells her that, where that future may now be impossible, another, different one can still take its place, and it can be just as filled with happiness.

As she's calling Sidney on her cell to look into the child's birth mother, she hands Henry to Mary Margaret, who cradles him in her arms. When she does so, he stops crying, much to Regina's shock, and the Mayor tries holding her son in the same way Miss Blanchard just did.

Henry wonders if he can borrow it, and Mary Margaret tells him that he can keep it, much to the boy's delight. He soon sees an image of Snow White on her wedding day and realizes how much it looks like his teacher, calling out for Miss Blanchard. When she turns around, he sees her as the character in the book, and makes the connection that it's all real.

Mary Margaret hears this and decides to skip breakfast, putting on a coat and heading out to the woods to think things over. As she fires arrows at a tree, one goes stray and hits something not far from her. She goes to investigate and discovers a trailer in the woods, and inside, she discovers August, and he is completely made of wood. She begins to talk to him, trying to convince him to come back into town for Emma, who misses him, but August refuses, viewing his current predicament as his punishment. He asks Mary Margaret to leave and she obliges before heading to Granny's Diner where she tells Emma and Marco of August's whereabouts. As they make their way to his trailer, Marco admits that he sent Pinocchio through the wardrobe, meaning that Snow could not be with Emma, and so Mary Margaret slaps him, immediately apologizing and stating that she's not feeling herself. When they make it to August's trailer, no one is there, and Emma is called by the wooden man from the sheriff's station. Emma, Mary Margaret and Marco head to the station where outside it they find wooden August dying. With his last words, he tries to warn Emma of something, but he passes before he can do so. Henry notes that August's last act was truthful, brave and unselfish, therefore, he can be saved. Mother Superior arrives and agrees with Henry, before turning August into little boy Pinocchio again, however, he does not remember the warning he tried to give. When Mary Margaret arrives home, she tells David that she went to see Regina who showed her her blackened heart. David tells her not to worry as he believes in her heart and knows it more than anyone. ("Selfless, Brave and True")

MM 219
Mary Margaret and David show Emma the bean crop. ("Lacey")

Mary Margaret and David drive Emma out to a roadside that appears to be the middle of nowhere. The blonde becomes confused until her parents reveal there to be an invisible barrier next to them, and through it, Anton and the dwarfs working on magic bean crop. Emma is initially happy to see Anton again, but soon realizes that the magic beans are being grown so that they may return to the Enchanted Forest, hence why Mary Margaret and David did not tell her of the harvest. She is undecided as to whether or not she would like to live out of her own world, which is her home, but her parents point out that it's been nothing but cruel to her. She also brings up the fact that their world is an ogre-riddled death trap, but she is assured that all of that will be fixed. Emma begins to contemplate all of this, and as she does so, she is approached by Regina who learns that Emma is keeping something, not knowing what it is. Later, Mary Margaret pulls up outside Granny's Diner with David and the dwarfs, the dwarfs go inside but David and Mary Margaret head home. As they drive away, Regina is seen using magic to guide her to the bean crop, now knowing that the Charmings plan on going home. ("Lacey")

MM 220
The Charmings contemplate leaving Regina behind. ("The Evil Queen")

Mary Margaret is seen at the town docks with David, discussing the matter that when they return to the Enchanted Forest, they will leave Regina behind. Mary Margaret is unsure of this, saying that Henry shan't be happy as Regina was his mother, despite all the terrors, but David assures her that the terrors will continue. He says they will offer her a choice, stay in Storybrooke or in Rumplestiltskin's cell, but Regina overhears this, and isn't too happy. Later, after bumping into Tamara, Emma professes to Mary Margaret that she's the "she" August tried to warn them of. Mary Margaret is unsure and tells Emma that if Henry thinks there is something up with his dad's fiancee, he shall think there is a chance of his parents getting back together, advising the blonde not to tell her son before leaving. However, Henry overhears the entire thing and helps Emma snoop. Later, Mary Margaret, David and Leroy pull up outside the bean farm and walk through the invisible barrier only to discover that all of the beans have been destroyed, by Regina, destroying all hopes of returning home. ("The Evil Queen")

MM 221
A potion of tears is dripped into Mary Margaret's eye. ("Second Star to the Right")

The Charmings head to Regina's office in order to retrieve the beans but are surprised to see it's empty. They discover the bean plant she was keeping as well as the fact that the beans have been harvested, and that someone broke into the office to steal them, meaning that the mayor is most likely in grave danger. Emma believes that Tamara is the one to have broken in, still thinking she's August's "she", but Mary Margaret does not believe this and warns Emma against it, and Snow and Charming decide to visit Gold to see if he has some sort of magical way to help find Regina. When they meet with him, David invokes the favor Gold owes him, and the pawnbroker reveals that he has one of Regina's tears, and asks for one of Mary Margaret's, which she consents to. This then creates a magical eye-drop that when put into Mary Margaret's eye, it will be able to see and experience everything that Regina can. Back home, David seems skeptical of this, but Mary Margaret wants to find Regina so that she can clear her guilty conscience over what happened to Cora, and so insists. David pours the drops into her eyes and Mary Margaret experiences the excruciating torture that Regina is currently going through. When the drops wear off, she tells David that she remembers awful pain as well as being strapped down, she mentions the smell of sardines and so Emma, Neal, David and Mary Margaret investigate the town cannery. Snow and Charming discover Regina being tortured by Greg, and so free her and have her healed by Mother Superior. When Emma arrives, however, she reveals that Tamara shot Neal and sent him down a portal, presumably killing him. As Mary Margaret consoles her daughter, Regina reveals that Greg and Tamara are currently in possession of a gem stone which acts as a fail-safe within the curse, able to wipe Storybrooke off the map, and kill all of its inhabitants. ("Second Star to the Right")

MM 222
The Charmings are off to Neverland... ("And Straight on 'Til Morning")

The Charmings head to the park where Mary Margaret and David tell Mr. Gold of Neal's death, and Emma tells Henry. They then bring up the fact that Greg and Tamara have the curse's fail-safe, but Gold doesn't care, and leaves in grief. When the Charmings return home, a sudden earth tremor ensues and Regina tells them that it means the diamond has been activated. Emma tells Mary Margaret to take Henry and gather the townspeople at Granny's Diner so that they're ready to go through the portal when David and Hook steal back a bean. The prince and the pirate are successful and head to the diner where Emma tells them Regina stayed behind to hold off the diamond, and will die doing so, and so they decide that they will send the diamond down the portal instead to halt the self-destruct and save Regina. They go down to the mines where Regina is and tell her of this plan, however, Emma soon realizes that the bean is missing and susses that Hook stole it, having been skeptical at the idea of helping Regina. The Charmings prepare to die together until Emma realizes that where Regina may not be strong enough to hold the diamond off completely, the two of them together might just be, and so Emma harnesses her own supply of magic and her and Regina manage to stop the fail-safe, returning Storybrooke to normal. They are initially happy until they realize that Henry is missing and when they go up to the surface, they see Greg and Tamara jump down a portal with him. Hook soon returns with his ship and the final bean and Mary Margaret, David, Emma, Regina and Gold come aboard the ship. They discover via Rumple's magic globe that Henry's in Neverland and they use the magic bean to open a portal in the ocean before sailing down it - being warned of someone they must fear on the other side. ("And Straight on 'Til Morning")

"'The minute I let go of the belief that things will get better is the minute I know they won't.'"
MM 301
Emma blames her parents for everything bad in her life. ("The Heart of the Truest Believer")

Mary Margaret, along with David, Emma, Regina, Gold and Hook, goes through the portal and comes out the other side in Neverland, where the Jolly Roger sails towards the central island. Whilst on the ship, Mary Margaret and David approach Emma in an attempt to comfort her about Neal and Henry, assuring her that neither of their respective losses was her fault. Emma agrees, and tells her parents that she blames them, as their message of "good will always win" is what got her and Henry in this mess. Before Snow is able to convince her daughter otherwise, Rumple explains how Neverland is run on belief, before disappearing before their very eyes. Soon enough, the Jolly Roger is attacked by a school of vicious mermaids; Regina uses her flame balls to get rid of them, and Mary Margaret and Emma manage to haul one up on deck. Here, the hostage mermaid summons a storm, and in an attempt to stop it, Regina uses her magic to turn the mermaid to wood. This does not work. This then prompts Snow into an argument with Regina, during which she punches her in the face. A fight then ensues between the princess and queen which leads into a separate fight had by Hook and Charming. Emma then realizes that the storm is being caused by everyone's hatred for one another, due to the way Neverland works, and jumps into the ocean so that the others will be forced to unite in rescuing her. Once Emma is rescued, she and the others arrive on the Neverland beach where the blonde explains that they will have to put aside their differences and utilize their strengths if they are to successfully save Henry, no matter how they manage to do so. ("The Heart of the Truest Believer")

MM 302
Mary Margaret helps her daughter to stop denying who she is. ("Lost Girl")

Mary Margaret and the others grow exhausted of hiking up the island in search for Henry, during which time Mary Margaret tries to persuade Emma to call her "mom", but Emma does not feel comfortable with the idea. They decide to set up camp but as they sleep Emma is awoken by the sound of crying children before being approached by Pan. He gives her a blank piece of parchment and tells her that it's a map that shall lead her to Henry only when she stops denying who she really is, and Emma goes back to camp to tell the others of this. Mary Margaret and David try to persuade her to accept that she's the savior, but when Emma states this, no map appears. Regina then decides to use a locator spell which causes the parchment to glow and fly, leading them straight to Pan. The five of them believe that they have found Henry, but it is in fact Pan in Henry's clothes, and he tells the Charming gang that they cheated, and cheaters never win, thus calling on the Lost Boys to attack them. Mary Margaret, David, Emma, Hook and Regina fend them off with their respective weapons and powers, and during this fight, David is scratched by an arrow dipped in Dreamshade poison, but believes himself to be alright. Emma stops the fighting when she has the chance to kill a Lost Boy, and Mary Margaret and the others are let go. They arrive back at camp and Mary Margaret asks her daughter why she stopped fighting that Lost Boy, at which Emma admits she saw herself in his face, as she felt like an orphan her entire life after being abandoned by her parents. This is hard for Snow to hear, but once Emma accepts this, a map to Henry appears on the parchment and the group continue their search for the boy. However, Pan appears to Emma again and assures her that she shall be a real orphan soon, and elsewhere, David is seen to have been scratched by the Dreamshade poisoned arrow, meaning that he's dying a slow and painful death. ("Lost Girl")

MM 303
Snow and Charming talk about home. ("Quite a Common Fairy")

The Jolly Roger crew are unable to use Pan's map to find Henry because Pan keeps relocating his camp, meaning that the destination on the map keeps changing. Hook suggests that they find it and get in by first finding the fairy of the island, Tinker Bell, who might also be able to give them some pixie dust in order to battle Pan. Regina, who has a "complicated history" with the fairy, purposely lags behind the others. The other four find Tinker Bell's tree house but do not find the fairy, nor do they find any pixie dust. Emma states that the tree house feels familiar somehow, and Snow regards it as simply somewhere to sleep, for someone who doesn't have a real home. Emma asks Mary Margaret how she would know of that, and Snow tells her daughter of when she was on the run from Regina back in the Enchanted Forest. After they realize that Regina is missing, they soon find Tinker Bell in a cave and point their weapons at her, demanding to know of the Queen's whereabouts. Regina reveals herself to be alive, having been kidnapped by the fairy, and the rest of the gang are disappointed to learn that Tinker Bell no longer possesses any magic to help them. However, she would be able to sneak them into the camp when she enters herself, but asks what would be in it for her. Snow says that the she can have a home with them, and when the fairy accepts, David asks his wife how he knew offering her a home would work. Snow admits that when she was on the run in the forest, all she dreamt of was having a home but she ever really found one until she met him. When he appears sad, she wonders what's wrong, but he merely tells her that he loves her as oppose to admitting that he's dying because of the Dreamshade poison now in his system. The two of them follow on from the rest of group. ("Quite a Common Fairy")

MM 304
"If you died, I would not be able to move on!" ("Nasty Habits")

Mary Margaret and the others are running through their plan to get into Pan's compound with Tinker Bell's help, but the fairy is shocked to discover that they have no way of escaping Neverland afterwards as no one ever leaves the island without Pan's permission. She leaves, telling them to come and get her when an escape plan is formed, and Hook tells the others of the only person he knows to have left the island without going through Pan: Baelfire. The pirate leads the five of them to the cave where Neal lived when he was in Neverland, and in there they discover a coconut with a light in it which creates a star-like pattern on the cave's ceiling. Hook explains that pirates can navigate using the stars, meaning that it's actually a map home, however, pirates also encrypt their maps, meaning that he's unable to read it, and the only person who can is dead. This deeply upsets Emma who storms out of the cave, crying, and Mary Margaret and David go after her. They attempt to console her but it's no use, and Mary Margaret becomes devastated when she's unable to comfort her daughter, which is the first thing a mother should be able to do. David assures his wife that Emma merely needs time to move on, to which Snow reveals that if David died, she would not be able to move on from him, so she doubts Emma would be able to do the same. This statement causes worry for Charming, who is currently dying from Dreamshade poisoning; he continues to neglect to tell his family the truth about his fate. ("Nasty Habits")

MM 305
Emma is forced to restrain her mother whilst Regina rips out a boy's heart. ("Good Form")

In Baelfire's old cave, Emma discovers tallies covering the wall, counting off the days that he was there. However, she notices that he was there a lot longer than the tallies count up to, which means he lost hope, and she's worried that the same thing is going to happen to Henry. They decide to send the boy a message, and as they figure out how to do so, Charming and Hook head up a mountain to search for a sextant that could help them decode Bae's map. The girls then wait for a Lost Boy to come out into the open; they are able to capture one and tie him to a tree. They are shocked when the boy professes Henry's viciousness, and Regina suggests that they rip out the boy's heart to put him under their control to send a message to Henry. Mary Margaret is heavily against the idea and Emma is forced to restrain her mother as Regina does the deed; once she has, the former Queen says that not only are they going to send a message to Henry, but they're going to see him by means of two halves of a compact mirror she's enchanted. The Lost Boy is sent into the camp and where he's forced to give Henry one half of the compact mirror, and Emma, Regina and Mary Margaret talk to him from the other side. They assure him that they're coming for him and that they love him, but as Pan is returning to the camp, a now hopeful Henry is forced to ditch the mirror, which breaks. Charming and Hook then return with no sextant (which was never the plan: Hook tricked Charming into going up the mountain so he could use magic water to cure him of Dreamshade poisoning; however, drinking the water means that you can never leave the island), and David tells the others that they were ambushed by Lost Boys but Hook saved him. Mary Margaret and the others then toast to the pirate, before setting off into the jungle yet again. ("Good Form")

MM 306
Mary Margaret is finally told about her husband's condition. ("Ariel")

When Regina is attempting to teach Emma magic, Hook returns to camp and tells David and Mary Margaret that Pan said Neal's still alive. Mary Margaret wants to tell Emma, but David believes that this will only harm her as, if Pan's lying, then she'll have to lose Neal all over again. Not agreeing, Snow quickly tells her daughter the truth, but Regina, who refuses to take Pan's word on this, abandons the others as they want to go save Neal. On their way to the Echo Caves, where Neal is currently being held prisoner, Mary Margaret tries to infuse her daughter with hope that he is in fact still alive because she believes Emma deserves a happy ending, all of which start with hope. They eventually make it to the Echo Caves and discover that Neal is locked in a wooden cage, which is resting on the other side of a deep gorge. Hook explains that the only way to get to him is to reveal your deepest, darkest secret, as that's how the Echo Caves work, and he starts by admitting that he's beginning to fall for Emma, and that the two of them kissed. Mary Margaret then reveals that she's actually very upset by the fact that Emma's an adult as it means her and David missed watching their daughter grow up; she admits that, when they get back home, she wants to have another baby. David tells his wife that that's never going to happen by admitting that he was poisoned by Dreamshade but was cured by magical water, with the catch that he can't leave Neverland without dying. The bridge to Neal then becomes fully formed, and to open the cage, Emma admits that she wished Neal were truly dead as that would mean never having to lose him again. The five of them then exit the cave, ready to continue their mission to save Henry, but Snow is still extremely angry with her husband for not telling her about the Dreamshade. ("Ariel")

MM 307
The end of a marital spat. ("Dark Hollow")

Now having saved Baelfire, he is able to explain to them how he escaped the island the first time: by capturing Pan's shadow. He, Emma and Hook set out to accomplish this task, whilst Mary Margaret and David decide to go and give Tinker Bell a heads up that they've found a way to escape Neverland. Before they leave, Emma notices her mother giving David the silent treatment for not telling her about the poison, and Mary Margaret in turn notices that Neal and Hook are currently fighting over Emma, and warns her daughter to be careful of that. On their way to Tinker Bell's, Mary Margaret is constantly giving the cold shoulder to her husband, who eventually calls her on it, demanding that she say something. She wonders why she has to, since he never did; even after he found a cure, he still never told her that his life was threatened. He says he was scared as he can never leave the island, but Mary Margaret assures him that she would happily build a hut in the jungle and live there fighting off poisoned arrows and Lost Boys for the rest of her life, so long as David was by her side. However, David tells her that that's exactly what he was scared of, as he didn't want to stunt her life by attaching her to his fate; he wishes for her to be able to leave Neverland. Mary Margaret is disappointed in him for not believing in their love, and when the two of them make it to Tinker Bell's tree house, they are soon met by Emma, Neal and Hook as well, who have managed to capture Pan's shadow. Now having an escape plan for after they rescue Henry, the five of them continue to plan the rescue itself. ("Dark Hollow")

MM 308
There may be a way for David to leave Neverland after all. ("Think Lovely Thoughts")

Emma talks to her mother about David's predicament: not being able to leave Neverland without dying. She asks Mary Margaret if she really plans on staying with him, and Mary Margaret says she does, something which Emma can't accept. The blonde says that family means being together and, with surprising optimism, assures her mother that they will find a way for David to come home safely. Emma talks to Hook about the water that cured David, and suggests that they take some home so that his connection to the island never breaks, but the pirate points out that the water will run out. When Regina and Rumple return to the rest of the Jolly Roger crew, Gold reveals that he may be able to configure a permanent cure for Dreamshade back home in his shop, having read up on it after being poisoned himself. The seven of them soon storm Pan's camp, after knocking out some Lost Boys with magic, only to discover that Henry and the demon child aren't there. They find out from Wendy, who's Pan's prisoner, that Henry has been taken to Skull Rock where he will be killed in order to ensure Pan's own immortality. Emma tells Mary Margaret and David to trek up to Dead Man's Peak in order to collect more magic water to keep David afloat until such time that Gold is able to cook up a cure in Storybrooke, whilst she, Regina, Neal and Rumple head to Skull Rock to save Henry from Pan's clutches, and Hook and Tinker Bell stay behind to guard the unconscious Lost Boys. When Henry foolishly rips out his own heart and places it in Pan's body, a burst of magic is spread across Neverland and felt by everyone, including David and Mary Margaret, who are trekking up the mountain. ("Think Lovely Thoughts")

MM 309
A bit of a situation. ("Save Henry")

David and Mary Margaret return from their trek up to Dead Man's Peak, presumably having collected some magical water for the former, to find that Pan has taken Henry's heart and the boy is now unconscious and dying. In order to learn Pan's location, Emma connects with the Lost Boys by offering them a home, and they are soon coerced into telling the blonde that Pan's in his thinking tree, a place he goes when he wants to be alone, which is located in the pixie woods. Now that Rumple has been trapped in Pandora's Box by Pan, Mary Margaret knows that she and David cannot return to Storybrooke as a Dreamshade cure cannot be produced without Gold, thus these may be the final hours she spends in the presence of her daughter; this prompts Snow to accompany Emma and Regina to where Pan is hiding. When approaching the villain's thinking tree, Mary Margaret notices Pandora's Box resting on a rock, and, knowing that freeing Rumple is her and David's only chance at returning home, she makes a grab for it, but this causes vines to magically extend from the tree and tie up all three women. Pan then emerges, explaining that the tree the women are bound to forces them to reflect upon their regrets, and taunts them about what they've done wrong, including Snow's abandoning of her only daughter. But Regina, who regrets nothing she has done as it all led her to getting Henry, is able to break free and rip her son's heart from Pan's chest, returning it to Henry aboard the Jolly Roger, who regains his consciousness. Mary Margaret is soon relieved when Rumple is freed from Pandora's Box, meaning her and David can go home, and as the ship begins flying thanks to the shadow, she begins feeding the Lost Boys who are going home with them. Meanwhile, Henry is subdued below the decks by a hard-to-defeat Pan, who tries to rip out the boy's shadow. But Rumple intercepts and traps his own father, Pan, in the box he was previously trapped in himself. However, when this occurs, Pan switches his consciousness with that of Henry, so Pan now possesses the boy's body, whereas Henry, who possesses Pan's, is trapped in Pandora's Box, to no one's knowledge. ("Save Henry")

MM 310
Snow knows the plight of heroism. ("The New Neverland")

Mary Margaret, along with everyone else aboard the Jolly Roger, returns to Storybrooke met by the townspeople's cheers. After a few reunions, everyone congregates at Granny's Diner to celebrate, where Snow and Charming try to convince Emma to go on a date with Neal, now that Henry is safe. The next day, Mary Margaret is having lunch with her husband when Mr. Gold stops by to drop of an elixir he created that should cure David's Dreamshade poisoning once and for all; the prince drinks it and is cured almost immediately, having been sustained previously by Neverland's water, but Mary Margaret's happiness soon falters when she sees Neal having lunch alone, meaning Emma didn't take her advice. David then decides to find his daughter and talk her into it, but the blond can't shake the feeling that something bad is going to happen, commenting that Henry doesn't seem quite himself. David tells her not to dwell on the bad things that might happen, but to focus on life's good moments, and going on a date with Neal could be a good moment. Mary Margaret and David later hear a scream coming from the local nunnery and assemble there along with some of the other townspeople; here, they see Mother Superior being chased by the shadow, which has been freed from the Jolly Roger's sail to which it was bound, and it eventually rips out the Blue Fairy's own shadow, killing her. Knowing that Pan must have caused this, Emma frees the demon child over the town line where he will be powerless, and points her gun at him, ready to fire. However, Pan reveals that he is actually Henry, trapped in Pan's body, whereas the Henry walking around Storybrooke is actually Pan. Once he proves himself to be the real Henry, he, Emma, Gold, Belle and the Charmings head to Regina's mausoleum, where they find the Mayor unconscious, having been knocked out by the disguised Pan. Rumple soon deduces what has been stolen from the vault: the Dark Curse. With this, Pan will be able to wipe the memories of the townspeople all over again, and without Snow and Charming's true love woven into the paper, even Emma will be powerless to stop it. ("The New Neverland")

MM 311
Snow White says goodbye to her daughter. ("Going Home")

Mary Margaret and the others are still at the mausoleum where Gold explains that the only way to stop the new curse is by Regina, the original caster, breaking the scroll, but she must pay a price to do this. Mary Margaret then heads to Gold's shop with Emma, Regina and Henry - who's still in Pan's body - where she sees what would have been Emma's mobile and tells her daughter that giving her up was the hardest thing she ever had to do. A spell is then cast to return Pan and Henry to their own bodies, and whilst Gold confronts his father in the pawnshop, Snow and the others find Henry in the town, who has the curse scroll. It isn't long before Pan, having apprehended Rumple, emerges and immobilizes the villagers, wanting to kill those most loved by his son. But before he can, Rumple emerges also, and stabs Pan with his Dark One dagger after being reunited with his shadow. This act brings about Rumple's death as well, and his loved ones mourn him whilst Regina explains that the price she has to pay for stopping the curse is Henry, who she can never see again. When Regina makes this sacrifice, she will be able to replace Pan's curse with one of her own, but this will return everyone to the Enchanted Forest and wipe Storybrooke from history, meaning Henry and Emma (who's able to leave because she's the savior) won't be able to remember it or its people at all. However, Regina is able to give them fake memories so that, for all they know, Emma never gave up her son, and as soon as the two of them drive over the town line, their new memories enact. Meanwhile, Mary Margaret and everyone else is enveloped by the curse, which is made safe by Regina, and transported back home. ("Going Home")

Before the Second CurseEdit

"'We're back.'"
Snow 312
They're back. ("New York City Serenade")

Snow and the others arrive back in the Enchanted Forest where they're met by a frightened Aurora and Phillip. After a brief catch-up with the recently pregnant couple, they decide to head to Regina's palace, which the Queen reveals was protected from the original curse. On their trek, Charming notices that Regina has gone missing, and Snow finds her attempting to bury her heart in the woods so that she doesn't have to deal with the loss of Henry. Snow convinces her former stepmother to embrace her emotions for, when the grieving period ends, she will be able to feel happiness, which is what Henry would have wanted for her; Regina places her heart back into her body. As the two of them go to regroup with the others, Snow hears a rustle in the bush and it's soon revealed to be a flying monkey, which attacks the princess and the Queen. Regina tries fending it off with her magic but is ultimately unable to, and so the gallant Robin Hood steps in and injures the creature with his bow and arrow, causing it to fly away in fright. Snow is grateful but Regina is highly disgusted by the thief, and his Merry Men, who join the others on their trek to the palace. On the way, Snow points out that Robin is kind of cute, but Regina retorts that he "smells like forest", clearly uninterested. When they finally arrive at the palace, they are surprised to learn that it's surrounded by a protection spell - one that wasn't cast by Regina - meaning someone else is currently inside. ("New York City Serenade")

Snow 313
Snow attempts to comfort Regina. ("Witch Hunt")

Red approaches Snow and comments how odd it feels to be running alongside Regina, as opposed to away from her, but Snow maintains the belief that her stepmother has changed and so attempts to comfort her when she appears depressed, clearly thinking about Henry. After another flying monkey attack, it is figured out that the foe inside the palace is the Wicked Witch of the West, much to everyone's dismay. The Queen later reveals that she may be able to get inside the castle and lower the protective spell should she enter via the underground tunnels she installed, and Snow wants to go with her her, but Regina refuses help because there's more of a chance they'd be detected. Snow assures the Queen that they'll be waiting for her on the other side, and Regina sets off alone, unknowingly joined by Robin Hood who figures he owes her a dept. The two of them are successful in their mission and the shield is lowered, meaning Snow and the others are able to begin storming the castle. As they do so, Regina confronts the Wicked Witch, Zelena, and discovers that the two of them are half-sisters; Zelena soon vacates the palace on her broom and Regina appears happy to have an arch-nemesis to destroy again. ("Witch Hunt")

Snow 314
Snow White announces her pregnancy. ("The Tower")

After spending about three months living in her old palace, Snow tells Charming some very good news indeed: she's pregnant. He is stunned by this and doesn't react very positively, leading Snow to ask him if he's happy. He says that he isn't happy, he's thrilled, and the two of them share a hug. However, Charming still appears worried, leading him to go on a quest for a root that vanquishes all fear, being afraid that he'll fail this child the way he failed Emma. On this venture, he comes across Rapunzel, who was on the same quest when she became locked in a tower, and realizes what eating this root really means, helping the fair princess to face the physical embodiment of her fears. He returns with the Rapunzel, going on to reunite her with her royal parents, and Snow asks her prince what he was doing out in the woods all night. He admits to being afraid, and she realizes that it's because they lost Emma and he fears losing their next baby, but Snow assures him that everything will be okay because they'll be raising this child the same way they do everything else: together. ("The Tower")

Snow 319
After re-enacting the curse, Snow revives Charming by giving him half her heart. ("A Curious Thing")

Snow and Charming are discussing whether or not they should announce their pregnancy to the people, but Phillip and Aurora advise them not to, explaining that Zelena wants their child for something. Zelena then shows up, turning Phillip and Aurora into flying monkeys as she does so, and comments that Snow's baby will do nicely for her plan. Eight months later, Snow is heavily pregnant and discussing with the royal council what to do about Zelena's threat, and so she, Charming, Regina, Belle and Robin Hood break into Rumple's castle to ask the resurrected Dark One - who's lost his mind and is under the Wicked Witch's control - if he knows a way to defeat his captor. With Belle's aid, he reveals that the answers they seek will come from Glinda, the Good Witch of the South, and Snow, Charming and Regina manage to track her down in the dark forest. She explains that Zelena's magic resides in her pendant, but only the powerful light magic within Emma Swan is able to defeat her. To get back to their daughter, the Charmings realize that they must re-enact the Dark Curse, much to Regina's objection. Despite this, the Queen gathers the ingredients for them, but Snow must sacrifice Charming's heart in order to complete it. They say their teary goodbyes to one another and the prince's heart is ripped out by Regina before being crushed by Snow and added to the mixture. The curse begins to enact, but Zelena flies by on her broom, sprinkling a forget potion into it so that Snow and Regina won't remember what they're setting out to do back in Storybrooke. Not wanting her husband's sacrifice to be in vain, Snow comes up with a plan to save him and asks Regina to rip out her heart and break it in half so that she and Charming can share it, thinking they are able to do this because they are each other's true love. Regina does what Snow asks and Charming revives in time to see the curse wash over the land. ("A Curious Thing")

A pregnant Mary Margaret reunites with her daughter. ("New York City Serenade")

When Emma returns to the newly-cursed Storybrooke, having regained her memories thanks to Captain Hook and a potion he gave her, she first visits her old apartment and knocks on the door; to her delight, David answers and remembers who she is. They hug, and he explains to her that they were cursed again when they were in the Enchanted Forest and so don't remember anything since Emma left town, meaning they lost a year of their lives. Emma wonders how he knows it's been a year if he can't remember anything that happened, at which point a heavily pregnant Mary Margaret descends the stairs, being a clear indicator of how much time has passed. She shares a joyous hug of reunion with her daughter, who is surprised that her mother is pregnant and that they've been cursed again; they are only left to wonder who is responsible... ("New York City Serenade")

Mary Margaret meets the Wicked Witch, not that she knows that. ("Witch Hunt")

Mary Margaret and David sit with Emma and Hook in Granny's Bed & Breakfast where they discuss the fact that people from the town have begun going missing, including three of the seven dwarfs. The next day, Henry wonders who the Charmings are and so Emma tells him that they're old friends, leading Mary Margaret to accidentally lead herself into a false story in which she was Emma's old cell mate. Regina soon sees Henry and remains distraught that he cannot remember her, and whilst Emma deals with everyone at town hall, and David deals with the fact that Little John was carried away by a flying monkey, Mary Margaret stays with Henry and begins reading her pregnancy book, shocked to find out about a head rash known as cradle cap. When Henry leaves for the bathroom, Zelena appears and assures Snow that cradle cap doesn't harm the baby, introducing herself as a former midwife back in the Enchanted Forest who missed the original curse. Mary Margaret asks Zelena to stick with her during the remainder of her pregnancy, not knowing she's actually the Wicked Witch of the West, and she says that nothing would make her happier. That night, Mary Margaret returns to the apartment with her family and is shocked to learn that people who go missing are being turned into flying monkeys, as is what happened with Little John. This leads them to realize that they're dealing with the Wicked Witch of the West, and they wonder what she's doing in Storybrooke and who she is. ("Witch Hunt")

MM 314
David and Mary Margaret discuss their new midwife. ("The Tower")

Mary Margaret stays in the apartment whilst Emma, David and Hook work on tracking down the Wicked Witch, and Regina takes care of Henry. She arranges a meeting with her midwife, Zelena, who would very much like to meet with David also, so that she can prepare both halves of the couple for their upcoming baby. David arrives soon after Zelena, having been sent a text from his wife, but Mary Margaret picks up on the fact that he really doesn't want to be there. As the two of them discuss whether or not Zelena can be trusted, she is in the kitchen making tea for the both of them and drugs David with night-root whilst she's at it. The meeting ends with David having drunk a sufficient of drugged tea and Zelena allows him to get back to the important town business she pulled him away from. However, due to the night-root he ingested, his fears manifest into a cloaked version of himself which he has to defeat, eventually stabbing it with the hilt of his sword and turning his weapon into a symbol of his courage. But his courage is stolen by Zelena's magic, and she keeps the hilt safely tucked away in her purse as she leaves the apartment of Mary Margaret, who remains totally none the wiser. ("The Tower")

MM 315
Mary Margaret comforts her daughter in a time of need. ("Quiet Minds")

Having learned that Rumplestiltskin is in fact alive and was being kept in the Wicked Witch's storm cellar, now on the loose, David and Emma leave to find him, with Mary Margaret being left at home, sad that she can't go with them in her condition since she's the best tracker in the family. Worried about the fact that her baby hasn't been moving lately, she phones Zelena, who arrives quickly, having heard panic in her patient's voice. She assures Mary Margaret that babies don't move much when labor is near, meaning she must be close to her due date; Zelena offers her a drink which helps the baby move, before stating that the little prince or princess could be arriving any day now and she won't be letting Mary Margaret have this baby without her. Later, David and Emma come bursting into the loft, weapons at the ready, wanting to know where Zelena is. Utterly confused, Mary Margaret reveals she's in the bathroom, but when they check, she is gone. Snow demands to know what is going on and they tell her that Zelena is in fact the Wicked Witch of the West, and has been playing them all along. But that isn't the worst news, for Emma reveals that she found Neal... and he died. Mary Margaret steps in to comfort her devastated daughter, and is later seen going into Mr. Gold's shop to break the news to Belle, who's in need of desperate comforting also. ("Quiet Minds")

MM 316
Regina exits her vault in a distraught manner. ("It's Not Easy Being Green")

Mary Margaret attends the funeral of Neal Cassidy, watching as multiple townspeople shovel dirt into his grave, and proceeds to the wake at Granny's Diner afterwards. She tries to comfort Emma, who's highly depressed over Neal's passing, but soon enough, Zelena bursts in with the Dark One's dagger held firmly in her hand; she mocks the death of Neal and Emma attempts to step in and do something, but Mary Margaret pulls her daughter back, pointing out that too many people will get hurt. Zelena tells Emma to listen to her mother, and Charming makes a point of shielding his wife's belly, leading the Wicked Witch to say she isn't there for his baby... not today, anyway. She soon reveals herself to be Regina's half-sister and challenges the Evil Queen to a fight on Main Street at sundown, allowing her time to unveil the truth of their familial connection. Emma and Mary Margaret head down to Regina's vault with her where Snow worried about Cora having booby trapped her belongings, thinking that a sleeping curse can't be good for the baby. Regina soon finds a letter which confirms Zelena being her half-sister and she leaves, incredibly distraught. Mary Margaret and the others head to Zelena's farmhouse where they plan to use Belle to lure Gold away from the Wicked Witch's cage, but their attempt fails and he remains in her control. That night, Zelena arrives on Main Street and Regina turns up late, battling her sister and soon being thrown through the face of the clock tower. Zelena then tries to rip out Regina's heart, needing it for her plan, but the Queen reveals that she took it out before she came to the fight. The witch flies away on her broom and the Charmings run to the Regina's aid as she explains that it appears Zelena is gathering ingredients, for she already has David's courage and now wants her heart. ("It's Not Easy Being Green")

MM 317
Snow bumps into an old friend. ("The Jolly Roger")

Mary Margaret sits quietly at the apartment whilst Emma and David struggle to put together the baby's new crib. She soon suggests calling Marco, for he's an expert carpenter, but they refuse, wanting to do this themselves. Regina then stops by, having installed a protection spell around the building to keep out the Wicked Witch, and Emma mentions wanting to go to the Mayor for some lessons in magic. The Charmings offer to take care of Henry whilst she does so, however, she reveals she's already asked someone else to take care of him. They wonder why, and Emma is forced to tell her parents that Henry finds them boring, especially in comparison to Hook, much to their dismay. Mary Margaret and David are later strolling along the beach when they notice a crowd has gathered, at the center of which is Ariel, who's washed ashore. She explains that she's been traveling the realms in search of Prince Eric, who's been missing ever since the new curse took place. They dress the mermaid and bring her to Granny's Diner, where they ask Hook if he's seen Eric during the missing year, but he says he hasn't, going on to take Ariel to Gold's shop to see if a locator spell can be cast on one of the prince's possessions. Meanwhile, David tries to prove he's fun by teaching Henry how to drive his jeep, but it goes horribly wrong and Mary Margaret watches as several mailboxes are destroyed by the young man's reckless driving. When they return home, the others are shocked to hear what the Charmings let Henry do, and Mary Margaret wonders what became of Ariel. They assure her that she's living happily on an island with her prince, and Snow is overjoyed to hear her friend received such a happy ending. ("The Jolly Roger")

MM 318
Amends is finally made. ("Bleeding Through")

After having her heart stolen by the Wicked Witch, Regina summons Mary Margaret, David, Emma and Hook to her house in order to talk to Cora and find out more about Zelena's past, which she's able to do via a spell which needs the deceased's murder weapon and murderer, Snow. The spell is successful and a portal to the afterlife opens in the ceiling, however, nothing comes out of it, which they take to mean Cora isn't interested in discussing her past with them. Mary Margaret stays behind when everyone else leaves to help Regina clean up, giving her time to apologize for killing Cora, and Regina concedes that it was a complicated situation. The two of them are then distracted by a noise upstairs and discover the ghost of Cora lurking in the house, and she tries to attack Mary Margaret, presumably wanting to avenge her own death. More than once, Regina stands in her way, holding her mother off with magic and demanding to know what she did to Zelena. Instead of answering, Cora simply possesses Mary Margaret, filling her head with memories. Regina is able to extract her mother from Snow's body and send her back into the afterlife, but Cora's memories still linger in Mary Margaret's head, and she explains that Cora didn't want to give Zelena up, but Princess Eva, Snow's mother, forced her to by spilling her secret. The others return, along with Belle, and they realize that Zelena wants Snow's baby as part of her spell to go back in time and kill Eva so that she would never have been abandoned, meaning Mary Margaret, Emma, Henry and maybe Regina will never have been born. Knowing what happened, Mary Margaret finds it hard to believe that her mother could have been so cruel to Cora, and, following a conversation about their past, Snow White and the Evil Queen finally decide to make amends and focus only on their future. ("Bleeding Through")

MM 319
The baby is coming. ("A Curious Thing")

Mary Margaret and the others are discussing how to break the curse and they deduce that the key lies in Henry remembering and believing in magic, but to achieve this, they must first find his book of fairytales. Having found it in her closet one day back when the first curse was in order, Mary Margaret thinks it may be there again, and so they begin to search. Only Snow is able to pull it from a box that Emma previously searched, and she soon realizes that her daughter didn't want to find the book because she'd rather Henry's memories didn't return so that she and him can continue their harmonious lifestyle back in New York, but she agrees to do this if it means defeating Zelena once and for all. After discovering Henry is missing, they locate him down at the docks where he and Hook are being attacked by a flock of flying monkeys. The monkeys are slain and Henry is given the book, returning his memories at long last. However, just as Emma's about to kiss his forehead and break the curse, Zelena snatches him away and threatens his life. Emma is able to use her magic to take back her son, but the Wicked Witch threatens them severely before she leaves, mentioning that Hook failed the task she had set him. Finally, Regina is the one to kiss Henry's forehead and finally break the curse, and the memories of everyone in town are restored. Snow and Charming explain that they cast the curse themselves to find Emma so that her powerful light magic could defeat Zelena. On their way out, Emma demands to know what Zelena meant when she said Hook failed her, and he explains that his kiss was cursed so that, if his lips touched Emma's, her magic would be taken. Mary Margaret and David advise their daughter against trusting the pirate for he obviously lied about them sending him a message with the memory potion he used on Emma in New York, and the Charmings go on to take Henry to see Neal's grave. Whilst there, Mary Margaret goes into labor... ("A Curious Thing")

Mary Margaret is handed her newborn son. ("Kansas")

Still in labor, Mary Margaret gets driven to hospital by David, accompanied also by Emma, Henry and multiple other townspeople working to keep Zelena out. She is put onto a wheelchair and taken hurriedly into a delivery room by Dr. Whale, who lays the mother-to-be down on a bed where David promises that this baby isn't going to leave her arms. She points out that that's what he said about the last one, but he points out in turn that, this time, they have someone extra on their side: Emma, who's currently casting a protection spell along with Regina. However, after a run-in with the Wicked Witch, Emma's magic is removed whilst giving CPR to Hook, who David had earlier decided to trust. As the stages of labor go forth, the lights begin to flicker and the Charmings are warned that Zelena has entered the building, but Whale says that this doesn't matter, for the baby is coming now. With much pain, Snow births her child, and her husband is ecstatic to learn that it's a boy, being the first one to hold the baby in his hands. He then places their newborn son into Mary Margaret's arms so that she may wrap him up in a blanket... but Zelena then enters, knocks out Dr. Whale, freezes Charming and Snow with her magic and takes the baby for her own, proceeding to teleport out of the building with the child in her arms; Mary Margaret cries uncontrollably. David and the others work to stop Zelena casting her spell, and they are successful, managing to take away her magic pendant and reunite Snow White with her son. However, that night, after Zelena's death at the hands of Rumplestiltskin, the magic from her pendant pours across town, causing the Wicked Witch's time travel spell to enact. ("Kansas")

Snow White meets Prince Charming, under different circumstances. ("Snow Drifts")

Mary Margaret refuses to tell Emma the name of the baby until the official coronation at Granny's Diner has taken place, however, as everyone meets up, Emma is provoked into leaving when Hook brings up her plans to move back to New York. Hook goes after her with the storybook in tow, but everyone is soon distracted when they see across town that Zelena's time portal has opened, having activated when she died. Emma and Hook are soon dragged down it, having gone to investigate, and find themselves in the Enchanted Forest of the past. Emma accidentally interrupts her parents' meeting and makes it so it never happens, and so the Snow White of that period does not rob Charming's carriage and instead goes to Black Beard to pay for safe passage out of the land on his ship. He says she needs twice the money she presents to him, which she would have if she had robbed the prince, but as Emma distracts the Captain Hook of the past, the Captain Hook of the present meets with Snow beneath his ship. He tells her that he will grant her safe passage should she steal Prince James' ring for her, and so Snow crashes King Midas' ball that night in order to rob it. Just as she finds it, however, Prince Charming and Princess Abigail spot her and order Regina's guards after her. Snow isn't able to steal the ring, which ends up in Emma's possession, whilst Emma is arrested by Regina for aiding Snow White's escape, having redirected an arrow when an archer was about to kill her. ("Snow Drifts")

MM 322
With time back in place, the Charmings announce the name of their newborn son: Prince Neal. ("There's No Place Like Home")

Still in a twisted version of the past, Snow is caught in a net by Prince Charming, where she dispenses his nickname, but they are soon subdued by Prince Charles (Hook's alias), who tells them that Princess Leia (Emma's alias) has Charming's ring. Snow hides in a carriage with the two princes as they go to rescue Emma from Regina's dungeon, during which time she and Charming bond and she tells him of the dark fairy dust she wears around her neck, which she plans to use on Regina. As Red Riding Hood helps the others break into the Dark Palace, Snow heads up to the throne room in order to confront the Evil Queen. She throws the dust as Regina, but she simply uses her magic to stop it, ordering that Snow be arrested on the spot. Snow is tied to a stake by the Queen's guards and burned alive by one of Regina's fireballs, however, she uses the dust on herself, which transforms her into a ladybug, and flies away in this form. She finds Charming, Red, Marian (who's another freed prisoner), Hook and a devastated Emma elsewhere and summons the Blue Fairy to return her to her human form, much to Emma's delight, which comes as confusion to Snow. She then leaves, but Charming realizes that she still has his wedding ring, and so he follows her all the way to the Troll Bridge. Knowing that she no longer has the dust in order to defeat the trolls - as she did the first time - Emma runs after them, but Snow is able to use sand and bluff her way out of the situation, returning events to normal. Emma watches as her parents fall in love, and she is later able to use a magic wand owned by Rumplestiltskin to return herself to the future. She returns to Granny's Diner, having decided to stay in Storybrooke, and Mary Margaret announces the name of her son: Prince Neal. The celebrations continue and Emma is finally able to address her parents as "mom" and "dad", but across town, the Ice Queen walks free, having been brought back when Emma and Hook returned. ("There's No Place Like Home")

Season 4Edit

"'They grow up so fast, I don't wanna miss a second.'"
A family stroll. ("A Tale of Two Sisters")

With Robin Hood's formerly dead wife, Marian, having returned from the past after Emma and Hook's escapade, Regina is distraught at the fact that she may not be able to remain with her true love. As an argument breaks out, Mary Margaret and David - along with baby Neal - exit the diner to check on everything, merely happy to see that no one's been incinerated yet. The argument ends with Regina storming off, but the Charmings worry about what it is she'll do. The next day, Mary Margaret, David, Emma and Henry are taking a stroll with the baby when the subject of Hook is brought up; in private, Mary Margaret wonders if Emma plans on telling Henry about she and the pirate being involved, but Emma doesn't think so because she isn't yet sure of the terms of their relationship, or if there even is one. Hook soon arrives, giving he and Emma a chance to talk, but they are interrupted when Leroy comes running and yelling about some new crisis involving ice magic. Emma and Hook follow a trail of ice, but when they reach its end, a snow monster forms and attacks them. It is eventually defeated by Regina, but it's rather evident that someone with the powers the control ice and snow is now loose in Storybrooke. ("A Tale of Two Sisters")

Mary Margaret snaps under pressure. ("White Out")

Elsa, the Ice Queen, decides that no one is leaving town until she finds her sister, Anna, and so she erects an ice wall around the perimeter of Storybrooke and unintentionally cuts off all the electricity as she does so. With David and Emma off dealing with the ice threat, Grumpy, Granny and Happy head over to Mary Margaret's place in order to goad her into getting the power back on, pointing out that they helped her take back the kingdom and she cast the new curse, so Storybrooke is her kingdom now and she has to rule it. At the local power station, Snow struggles to accomplish anything and yells at her apparent royal subjects when they complain at her, causing them to storm off and leave. When baby Neal needs feeding, Mary Margaret gets the idea that the reason the power isn't turning back on is because fuel is needed, and so she follows the fuel pipe and manages to turn it on, thus restoring electricity to the town. She and Neal then return home where Charming helps Elsa discover the fact that her missing sister is alive, although they're still unaware of her whereabouts. Meanwhile, it becomes apparent that someone with similar powers to Elsa is preventing her from being able to thaw the ice wall. ("White Out")

MM 403
Snow receives some free therapy. ("Rocky Road")

As Mayor, Mary Margaret hosts her very first fireside chat in what used to be Regina's office, deciding to multitask by bringing baby Neal with her as well. As the meeting goes on, however, all anyone seems interested in is the ice wall surrounding the town... and then Marian collapses thanks to an ice curse. Everyone is quick to blame Elsa, but Emma defends her new friend and works with Charming to prove her innocence, eventually finding out that the real culprit is, in actuality, the mysterious Snow Queen. Meanwhile, Mary Margaret is struggling to both hold her baby and assemble his stroller when Archie approaches, noticing her dilemma and realizing that the reason she's spending so much time with her newborn son is because she missed Emma's childhood completely and wants to soak up every second of his. She doesn't appreciate the impromptu therapy session, but the conscience continues in assuring her that she and her son will be much happier if she lets him go once in a while. Mary Margaret ponders this whilst Regina, who doesn't appreciate the slight tweaks made to the decor of the office, finds a way to stall Marian's affliction. ("Rocky Road")

Mary Margaret hops aboard the Captain Swan bandwagon. ("The Apprentice")

When Emma asks Hook out on a date and dresses to impress, Mary Margaret is happy to see her daughter being courted and takes a picture of her before she leaves, she and David thinking that this makes up for them never getting to take her to a ball when she was growing up. Hook arrives and the Charmings are all shocked to see that he has two hands, at which he explains that he made a deal with the Dark One to make it so (which he later goes back on, due to extenuating circumstances). Later that night, following the goodnight kiss, Emma arrives home to find her two parents waiting on the couch. Mary Margaret is excited and wants to know everything whereas David is more relaxed and would rather not hear about what the pirate's been getting up to with his daughter. Feeling swamped, Emma continuously comments that she needs to get her own place, and as she heads to bed, Mary Margaret takes note of how happy she seems which leads David to comment that it seems Hook really has changed. Emma exclaims that she can hear them. The next day, the Charmings are investigating the Snow Queen at the sheriff's station after an incident wherein she stalked Emma, coming to the conclusion that she didn't arrive along with the curse, meaning she made her own way to Storybrooke. ("The Apprentice")

The mystery is solved... or so Snow thinks. ("Breaking Glass")

Mary Margaret has reservations about leaving Neal behind with Belle so that she can go on a hike with David, not wanting to be separated from her child, but he assures her that everything's going to be okay and manages to convince her to come. First, however, they make a quick stop at the sheriff's station where they soon realize that the thief, Will Scarlet, has escaped. David suggests tracking and capturing him, to his wife's confusion, but he points out that it will be like the old days: Snow White and Prince Charming on an adventure but without the Evil Queen on their backs. The two of them then head off in search of the thief, but Mary Margaret wants to go home whilst David continues to search. He goes on, but she almost immediately spots Will digging something up nearby. She approaches to find that he's searching for his travel bag, which is buried along with the map he needs to find his travel bag. Not believing anyone could be that stupid, Mary Margaret deduces that David actually set this man free so that she could feel good about capturing him. She gets Will to admit all of this in exchange for a pardon, and he walks away a free man. Back at the apartment, David returns home and his wife reveals that she "caught" the thief, going on to explain that she knows all about his plan. However, David reveals that Will really did escape and really is that stupid and lied to her to get a pardon. This stuns Mary Margaret, but David urges that maybe Will earned his pardon if it means it's helped her find that part of herself again. ("Breaking Glass")

Some shocking footage is unveiled. ("Family Business")

Mary Margaret, along with everyone else, is summoned to the sheriff's station in order to view an old recording Emma found that shows the Snow Queen used to be her foster mother. Snow is shocked, never having witnessed her daughter's childhood, but Regina asks her old nemesis if she's missing the part where Emma is with the Snow Queen, which the blonde claims to remember none of, having had her memory of the foster home and all her time there erased. Belle chimes in, saying that she doesn't understand how the Snow Queen even ended up in their world, and Emma hopes that maybe Gold can tell them, pointing out that he spent more time trying to get there than anyone and asking how she did it. Gold, having labored over said task, would like to know himself, and David wonders if she should be a little more concerned about why she came there, as opposed to how. He goes on to sum up that they know she's hiding in the north woods, they searched every inch of her shop, tore apart her house, but she'd cleared everything out days before. Hook points out that that must mean she's hiding something, and Henry suggests that they check her ice cream truck, having noticed she owns such an item because he's a kid. Once there, they find that the Snow Queen has been stalking Emma for quite some time and, thanks to Belle, they later discover that she hopes to cast a Shattered Sight spell to make everyone in Storybrooke turn on each other so all that will be left is she, Elsa and Emma (who resembles her sister, Helga), who will act as her idealized family. ("Family Business")

Mary Margaret fears her daughter. ("The Snow Queen")

Along with the likes of Ashley and Aurora and their respective babies, Mary Margaret and Neal attend a "Mommy and me" class over at Granny's Bed & Breakfast, after which Emma shows up in order to take Neal for babysitting. She takes note of how much stuff the baby has and Mary Margaret replies that she just wants to make sure he has everything, to her daughter's slight dismay. When the blonde takes a bottle of milk, it begins to boil in her hand due to the magic still resonating within her, causing all the princesses in sight to begin looking at her fearfully. However, Emma is forced to take a rain check on babysitting when the Snow Queen is located in the town clock tower and goes on to capture her, however, it is soon revealed that the Snow Queen wanted to be trapped, as it's all a part of her plan, and she soon uses her ice magic to seal herself in the sheriff's station with Emma, where she causes the latter's magic to go out of control. Mary Margaret, along with everyone else, rushes over just after Emma has accidentally caused the wall to explode, and her temperamental powers cause a nearby lamppost to fall on David. Mary Margaret quickly makes sure her husband's alright before yelling at her daughter. Seeing the hurt on Emma's face, she soon feels sorry and changes her tone to that of an apologetic one. She tries calling after her daughter, but it's too late; Emma drives away and cannot be found, even hours later. Mary Margaret laments yelling at her daughter over at the apartment, claiming to have failed as a parent, and regrets heavily that Emma was forced to see fear in the eyes of her own family. ("The Snow Queen")

Snow talks about hope... again. ("Smash the Mirror")

After a night of everyone, including Mary Margaret, searching for Emma, Henry arrives home - having found her on his own - with a cut accidentally inflicted by his magically-enhanced mother. Elsa puts some ice on it with some of her own magic, and Emma soon calls her mother in order to tell her what she plans to get rid of her magic permanently. Regina arrives with a locator spell to help them find the missing savior, and Mary Margaret notices that she's failed to button her blouse, and so Regina quickly fixes that before going to visit her adoptive child, and ultimately healing him as she does so. Later, Mary Margaret confronts her old stepmother about the shirt mishap and deduces that she's been spending time with Robin Hood, which Regina admits to, feeling heavily guilty about engaging herself in an affair with a married man. Before the conversation can go much further, Regina learns that Emma plans to rid herself of magic and, worse, the Charmings plan to let her, and so she lectures them as to why that's bad, leading them to realize that they've been rationalizing the situation, and it doesn't take anyone long to notice that both the locator spell and Elsa are missing. Henry, David, Regina and Snow begin tracking Emma through the town, which allows the latter two to continue their earlier conversation about Robin. Mary Margaret assures the Evil Queen that an unhappy ending isn't written in stone for her, and refuses to believe that the author of Henry's storybook has any control over their fates. She tries convincing her to have hope, which Regina scoffs at, and the search party later finds Emma and Elsa at an abandoned mansion. Emma has embraced her powers and decided not to go through with the removal, but a strange ribbon appears on her wrist, and Elsa's. Elsewhere in Storybrooke, the Snow Queen casts her spell of Shattered Sight. ("Smash the Mirror")

The spell of Shattered Sight takes its toll on Snow White. ("Fall")

Mary Margaret and the others head up to the clock tower to see that the spell of Shattered Sight has been cast, and will be ready to turn everyone in Storybrooke against one another by sundown; Emma believes the answer to be simple, suggesting that they all leave Storybrooke, but the ice wall prevents them from doing so, rendering the savior's idea moot. However, from within the ice, Elsa is able to find her sister's necklace which, with a locator spell, could be used to find Anna. She and Emma head to Belle, and she detects that it could be used to counteract the spell if Anna herself, who's been under the spell, cannot be located. The search proves unsuccessful and could go on for days, but the fairies could still use the necklace to counteract the spell, and destroy it in the process, thus destroying all hope of locating Anna along with it. Mary Margaret surprises everyone when she sides with Regina on the fact that they have to do what's in the best interest of the town, as opposed to holding onto the Ice Queen's blind faith that her sister can be found. They head to the fairies with the pouch containing the necklace... only they don't have it; Elsa tricked them and is using it to track Anna, and is eventually able to make a wish on it which causes Anna and her fiancé Kristoff to appear. After a reunion, they return to the fairies, but they're all mysteriously missing, and so the spell appears inevitable. Mary Margaret and David lock themselves up in the sheriff's station cells, giving Neal to Emma to keep him safe. They believe that their love is strong enough to withstand the spell, but the rain of glass soon falls, the spell becomes complete, and Snow stares at her husband in utter contempt. ("Fall")

The Evil Queen does battle with her old nemesis. ("Shattered Sight")

With the spell of Shattered Sight complete, Mary Margaret and her husband begin arguing uncontrollably, with her berating him for things such as his poor parenting skills and him berating her for things such as her one-night stand with Dr. Whale. Anna, who's been left to look after Neal, tries reminding Snow White and Prince Charming that they're supposed to love each other, but David points out that she hit him across the face when they first met, which should have been a sign, while she argues that he trapped her in a net. Mary Margaret goes on to tell Anna that she isn't as warm and fuzzy as one might think, for she killed the Evil Queen's mother and said she was sorry, but she didn't mean it. It's not long before Regina herself, dressed in the kind of royal attire she would normally be seen sporting back in the Enchanted Forest, arrives in the sheriff's station and sends Anna and Kristoff elsewhere with her magic, wanting to face Snow and ultimately kill her baby in revenge for what happened to Daniel. She opens the cell with her magic and plans to fight the princess in the same way, however, Mary Margaret goads Regina into fighting physically, at which she provides the two of them with swords and they begin brawling with one another. Their fight lasts a long while and escalates to extremely aggressive levels, that is, until the Snow Queen sacrifices herself to undo the spell and everyone's personalities are put right. Snow, Charming and Regina simply begin to laugh, before heading outside with Neal to discover that it's snowing and reunite with Emma. The Charmings apologize for all they said to one another, chalking it up to a mere spell and kissing to show that they hold no hard feelings. ("Shattered Sight")

Emma and Mary Margaret are stopped in their tracks. ("Heroes and Villains")

Following Ingrid's death, Elsa is finally able to use her powers to remove the ice wall surrounding the town; however, some of the Snow Queen's magic remains, and her desire to protect Storybrooke against intruders has made it so that anyone who leaves cannot return. Things look bleak for Elsa, Anna and Kristoff, who need to make it back home to Arendelle in order to dethrone the evil Prince Hans, but it isn't long until Hook reveals that he visited Mr. Gold and found a portal for the three of them to go to, over in the mansion where Emma's magic was almost removed. Mary Margaret and the others head over there and quickly find a door standing alone in a room. Elsa bids her goodbyes before stepping through it, back to her kingdom, and Kristoff follows. Anna is the last to go through but, before she does, she wishes to know who Mr. Gold is, and they explain to her that his real name is Rumplestiltskin. This shocks her, for she knows who he is, and this leads everyone to become aware that the Dark One has been lying to them for sometime. Anna goes home whilst Emma and Mary Margaret rush over to the clock tower, where Gold is performing a ritual involving the sorcerer's hat and Hook's heart, with which he's been controlling the pirate for some time. They try to stop him, but he simply freezes them with his magic, continuing with his spell which should make it so that he can leave town and retain his magic whilst cleaving himself entirely of the dagger and its control... but the spell fails, thanks to Belle, who's found the real dagger and uses it to command him to stop, unfreeze Mary Margaret and Emma and give Hook his heart back. Seeing the man he truly is, she proceeds to force him over the town line so that he may never return. ("Heroes and Villains")

The character of Mary Margaret Blanchard/Snow White is based upon the main protagonist of the popular fairytale known across most of Europe, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs", the best known version being the Bavarian one collected by the Brothers Grimm. The generalized version of Snow White tells of a beautiful princess, she is depicted as living under her wicked, vain step mother, a Queen, who forces Snow White to slave labor fearing that one day her beauty would become greater than hers. After many years, the Queen's magic mirror confirms Snow White as being the "fairest of them all", which causes the Queen to cast Snow White out and send a huntsman to kill her. Unable to do so, the huntsman helps Snow White escape into the forest. Snow White stumbles upon the home of the seven dwarfs who happily aid her. This is the story that the 1937 film adaptation by Disney presents, and the one followed most closely by Once Upon a Time. However, there are many variations of the original tale. In some of these variations, the dwarfs are robbers, while the magic mirror is dialogue with the sun or the moon. Several other adaptations of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" have been made over the years. The great friendship between Snow and Red Riding Hood also mirrors the fairytale of "Snow-White and Rose-Red", by Charles Perrault. </tabber>
