Our favorite fantasy drama ONCE UPON A TIME returns tonight to ABC with a new episode and the season 4 episode 8 called, “Smash the Mirror.” On the last episode, Emma captured the Snow Queen and interrogated her at the sheriff’s station. But the Snow Queen used her prior knowledge of Emma to try to persuade her into thinking that they were more alike than she could possibly imagine.
