Unable to save Prince Phillip–not even with True Love’s Kiss, Mulan and Aurora set out on one final journey and collect just enough magic to reopen the Lake Nostos portal. Adjusting to Storybrooke isn’t easy. As if the strange modern technologies aren’t enough, they have to cope with what Archie diagnoses as post-traumatic stress disorder caused from battling in the Enchanted Forest. Aurora still has nightmares, and Mulan is afraid of getting too comfortable/losing her edge so she spends an unhealthy amount of time practicing. Because career positions are as easy to obtain as a glass of water on Once, Mulan becomes the new deputy and Snow finds a job for Aurora as a teacher’s aide. They learn to let go of their fears and overcome their traumas together.
