Before First Curse

One day, Baron Danglars and some accomplices burns down the home of Edmond Dantès and murders his fiancé. Edmond is then imprisoned in a dungeon afterwards. Since his imprisonment, Edmond plots to get revenge on those who wronged him. Sometime later, Edmond escapes the dungeon and begins his revenge plot on Baron, starting with building an empire. ("A Bitter Draught")

Over a decade later, Edmond, now known as the Count of Monte Cristo, holds a grand ball at his estate. He invites Baron to the ball in order to fulfill part of his revenge plot. From the Enchanted Forest, the Evil Queen also makes her way to the ball in this land with hopes to make a deal with the Count. During the ball, the Count reveals his true identity to Baron and the rest of the guests. The Count pulls out his sword and points it at Baron's throat, demanding him to reveal the identities of all those who wronged him. As Baron refuses to reveal their identities, the Count plunges the sword into Baron, killing him immediately. The rest of the guests scatters out of the ballroom in fear, except the Evil Queen. As the Count questions the Evil Queen's presence, she holds out a scroll to him, offering to make a deal with the Count for the scroll, which lists the names of all those that wronged him. She makes the deal with the Count to befriend Snow White and Prince Charming in order for her to get her revenge, to which the Count agrees to. Together with the Evil Queen, the Count makes his way to the Enchanted Forest. ("A Bitter Draught")
