("Pilot")

Assembling a group of dark souls, the Evil Queen demands a lock of hair from each of them as ingredients to cast the curse and threatens to harm them if they don't comply. After getting the ingredients, she mixes them with the heart of her prized stallion as sacrifice to complete the spell to enact the curse. However, the curse barely works and fails within seconds. One of the participants, the Gnome, laughs at the Evil Queen's failure and in return, she turns him into a statue. The Evil Queen then goes to Rumplestiltskin's prison cell to seek his guidance. Rumplestiltskin tells her that she will need to sacrifice the heart of the thing she love most in order for the curse to works. Devastated at his answer, the Evil Queen returns home. Upon returning, her father, Prince Henry, asks her whether she had got her answer. The Evil Queen mentions to him that she will have to sacrifice his heart as he is the thing she love most. Becoming emotional, she asks her father about her next move. Despite his plea to give up on revenge, she kills him and uses his heart to complete the spell.
