Background

History

Before First Curse

After being abandoned in the woods of the Enchanted Forest by her mother, a baby infant was transported to Oz by a cyclone. A woodcutter and his wife witness the baby falling from the cyclone while walking on the yellow brick road. The women was determined to take care of the baby, naming her Zelena while her husband had skeptical doubts about the baby.

Years later, Zelena's adoptive mother dies and she began caring for her adoptive father. One day, Zelena was visited by Cora Mills from the Enchanted Forest, seeking help from her to cure her daughter, Regina. Zelena follows Cora back to the Enchanted and cures Regina. Since then, Cora had been bringing Zelena back and forth from Oz to the Enchanted Forest for play dates with Regina. Sometime later, Zelena and Regina finds out that they are sisters and that Zelena is Cora's first born. In order to keep it as a secret, Cora wipes out Zelena and Regina's memories of their time together and banishes Zelena back to Oz.

Sometime later, Walsh, a failed circus performer from Kansas ends up in Oz and tricks Glinda, the Good Witch of the South into thinking that he was a powerful Wizard while taking over Emerald City.

Years later, Zelena's father claims that he never wanted her and told her that she was adopted. Furious, Zelena storms out of her house and seeks help from the Wizard of Oz at Emerald City. Zelena discover that Cora Mills of the Enchanted Forest is her real mother and uses the Silver Slippers gifted to her by the Wizard to travel to the Enchanted Forest. Zelena meets Rumplestiltskin and began learning magic from him. She also learns that her younger sister, Regina, is also being taught by Rumple who wants Regina to cast a powerful curse. Jealous that Rumple wouldn't let Zelena cast the curse, she returns to Oz. She then ask help from the Wizard of Oz to change the past, only to be declined. After finding out that the Wizard of Oz was fake, she turns him into a Flying Monkey. She then began spying on Rumple and her sister and slowly turned green out of jealously.

Sometime later, Glinda recruits Zelena into joining the Sisterhood of Witches, along with the Good Witch of the North and the Wicked Witch of the East. She receives a pendant from Glinda to harness her power, becoming the ruler of the West realm of Oz.

One day, Glinda and Zelena witness a house falling out from a cyclone. While investigating the wreckage, they meet Dorothy Gale from Kansas. Wearing that this child would take over her title as the Witch of the West, Zelena tries to attack Dorothy with a ball of fire, only to be countered attack by Dorothy with water, causing Zelena to physically melt. Glinda then offers Zelena's spot at the Sisterhood of Witches but Dorothy wanted to go back home. Glinda and Dorothy then sees the Wizard of Oz, who gives Dorothy the silver slippers and returns her home. After Dorothy is gone, Zelena reveals herself to Glinda, claiming that she tricked her into sending Dorothy back home. She then banished Glinda to the Enchanted Forest so that she can never find another sorceress to replace her. Zelena, now known as the Wicked Witch of the West, then takes over the Emerald City, becoming sole ruler of all of Oz.

During this time, Will Scarlet's elder sister Penelope dies of drowning. Unable to move on from her death, he becomes a guard at Emerald City, working for Zelena.

Years later, Jefferson travels to Oz to seek the silver slippers for Rumplestiltskin, but couldn't find it and brought back a crystal ball instead. Rumple then sends Robin Hood to Oz to obtain the Elixir of the Wounded Heart. Robin meets Will, who helps him break into Zelena's palace. Robin then gives the elixir to Will instead of bring it back for Rumple. Sometime later, Will travels to the Enchanted Forest.

Sometime later, while Zelena was celebrating an occasion, her Flying Monkey brings her the Scarecrow. She plans to use a time traveling spell to change her past and needs the Scarecrow's brain. At the same time, Dorothy returns to Oz to face Zelena after finding out that she's alive. She and her dog, Toto, saves the Scarecrow from Zelena and escapes the Palace. Zelena then threatens the Munchkins within the West realm for informing Dorothy of her whereabouts. Zelena is then visited by Hades, who wants to help her. Hades then helps Zelena to track Dorothy. Zelena then rips the Scarecrow's brain out, instantly killing him and leaves Dorothy unharmed, wanting to show all of Oz that Dorothy failed to save them. Returning to her Palace, Hades prepares a dinner for her and reveals that he had fallen in love with her. Thinking that he is lying, Zelena ask Hades to return to the Underworld. Angered, Hades tells her that she will regret her actions in the future.

After First Curse

Zelena leaves the Land of Oz to the Enchanted Forest and takes over the Dark Palace while its inhabitants were away in Storybrooke, waiting for her revenge on her half-sister, Regina. This eventually leads to Zelena being brought over to Storybrooke by the curse after it has been cast again.

During Third Curse

Sometime later, Mulan and Red comes to Oz from Fairy Tale Land. Hoping to encounter wolfs, the two stumbles upon Toto. Toto began barking at them. Dorothy then appears and claims that Toto only barks at witches, in which Red clarifies that she is a werewolf and the reason behind Toto's barking. As Toto runs away, Dorothy, Red and Mulan chases after him. During this time, a cyclone hits Oz and brings back Zelena to the land after being banished by Regina from Storybrooke. Hoping to get back to Storybrooke, she kidnaps Toto and demands Dorothy to return the Silver Slippers to her or else she'll never see her dog again. The trio then put up at Dorothy's campsite. Later, Dorothy and Red gets chased by a Flying Monkey send by Zelena. Arriving back at the campsite, Dorothy leaves Mulan and Red, unnoticed, and goes to the Royal Palace of Oz to save Toto from Zelena. Meanwhile, Red discusses her feelings towards Dorothy to Mulan. Arriving at the Palace, Dorothy sees Toto trapped in a cage. Zelena then inflicted her with the Sleeping Curse, putting her to sleep. Zelena then escapes from Oz and returns to Storybrooke using the Silver Slippers.

After Third Curse

Later, Red uses a Tracking Spell and locates Zelena in the Underworld. Travelling to that land, Red finds out that she can break the curse as she loves Dorothy. Arriving back at Oz with Snow White using the slippers, Red kisses Dorothy and breaks the curse. The two passionately kisses one another as the Munchkins, Mulan and Snow cheers.
