Here’s what to expect from tonight’s episode, titled “The Eighth Witch,” written by Jane Espenson & Jerome Schwartz and directed by Ralph Hemecker: When Drizella threatens the realm with a dark curse, Henry and Ella take extreme actions to protect Lucy and the others; and Regina is forced into making an unimaginable choice. In Hyperion Heights, Roni recruits Henry to travel to San Francisco to search for her sister, but when he learns Lucy has fallen unconscious, Henry rushes to be by her side. Meanwhile, Gothel earns the trust of Anastasia, and the consequences of their budding relationship could prove to be fatal.
