The first Once Upon a Time season 3 sneak peek has been released! Watch a clip from the first episode, titled “The Heart of the Truest Believer.”

We’re only a month and a half away from Once Upon a Time season 3, and it’s time for the first sneak peek from the premiere.

This is the same clip as was shown last weekend at the D23 expo, where Once Upon a Time creators Adam Horowitz and Ed Kitsis did a panel previewing season 3 and the Wonderland spinoff. It shows Mr Gold (Robert Carlyle) in Neverland, threatening a Lost Boy:

Gold talks about potentially fighting Peter Pan, and is very frank about the fact that he’ll probably lose if they ever come face to face.

But he promises the Lost Boy that he’ll take as many of them as he can down with him. That’s certainly an ominous start to the season!

In Once Upon a Time season 3, we’ll follow Gold, Emma (Jennifer Morrison), Snow (Ginny Goodwin), Charming (Josh Dallas), Regina (Lana Parrilla) and Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) as they try to rescue Henry (Jared Gilmore) from Peter Pan.

The producers have promised that the new setting will allow them to explore the characters further, and “strip them down to their core.”

“The Heart of the Truest Believer” airs Sunday, September 29 at 8/7c on ABC. The following two episode titles have also been revealed “Lost Girl” and “Quite a Common Fairy.”
