Most of the pictures show a shocked looking Regina being confronted by a mob of Storybrooke inhabitants outside her home. This seems to be taking place just as she’s learning that her magic isn’t quite the same in the real world as it was in fairytale land.

There are a couple shots that are worth singling out. We particularly like seeing Emma holding hands with Henry, and Mary Margaret with her arm around him. We’ve heard that Emma’s going to have a hard time coming face-to-face with her parents, but it seems as though Henry is grateful for the reunion. Snow and Charming seem to have taken on a protective role concerning him as well.

The other interesting thing to note is that Dr. Whale seems to be right in the middle of everything. In a few pictures, he appears to be going head-to-head with David. In another, he seems to be laughing at Regina. So, whose side is he really on?

The synopsis for “Broken” is as follows,

Reality and myth begin to merge as the fairytale characters awaken from Evil Queen Regina’s broken curse and remember who they were. But to their dismay, they aren’t transported back to fairytale land. To make matters worse, Rumplestiltskin – aka Mr. Gold – in an effort to gain the upper hand in his power struggle with Regina, has introduced magic into the town. In fairytales magic has its place, but in our world it can have unfathomable consequences. Meanwhile, back in the fairytale land, Prince Phillip awakens his sleeping beauty, Aurora (Sarah Bolger, “The Tudors”), but discovers that he and his traveling companion, Mulan (Jamie Chung, “Sucker Punch,” “The Hangover Part II”), will soon have to face a deadly foe.

Thanks goes to the Huffington Post for sharing the pictures.

What role do you think Dr. Whale will play in ‘Broken’?

    I am so unbelievably excited for the 30th! It’s really interesting to see how this whole power struggle is going to work between Gold & Regina now that magic isn’t going to work as they had expected it to.

    Also: Noticed that Archie isn’t a grasshopper/Mr. Whale isn’t a whale! So that answers what happens there. Now the question is…what *did* the magic affect?

    He’s laughing at/mocking Regina’s lack of powers. Look at her face, that’s not the face of a confident Evil Queen.

    So will we find out who Dr Whale is during this episode??? I can’t wait for it! It is going to be epic! Didn’t the trailer for it ahw Regina doing magic though? So will it work sometimes, but to others?

    Here’s hoping we find out who Dr. Whale really is! My money is on Prince Eric, though I admit it’s a long shot.
    Is Eion Bailey confirmed to be coming back as August?

    It sounds like Prince Philip and Mulan might be BFFs. Haha. Interesting.

    paybacks a bitch – you better watch yourself now Regina. BOOYAH!!

  • FairyTaleVampire

    I have always thought that Dr. Whale was Peter Pan, but after seeing these photos I’m kinda seeing why people think he may be Merlin as he looks like he’s laughing at Regina’s magic :)

      just out of curiosity – why do so many people think he’s Peter Pan?

      • FairyTaleVampire

        For me, it was in the last episode when the curse had been broken and he just looked so confused about everything. I had the idea in my head that Peter Pan did something to annoy Regina and his punishment was that he grew up. Seems silly but I just liked that theory :)

  • blackkiko

    Apparently there’ll be a lot of David Anders in this episode

    also – why are charming and snow at her side in a couple of these pics? …

    I am thinking Dr. Whale is on Regina’s side. I don’t know why but from a couple of the photos it just seemed like he is on her side. I can’t really pinpoint a character for him though which sort of frustrates me. Can’t wait for the premier!
