Things aren’t always black or white on “Once Upon A Time,” but they will be this week.

In Sunday’s episode, titled, “In The Name of the Brother,” Dr. Frankenstein makes an appearance in a series of flashbacks all filmed in black and white.

It’s not clear how Frankenstein fits into Fairytale land, or Storybrooke, but in a recent sneak peek of the episode, it’s clear that the magic protecting Storybrooke from outsiders has disappeared.

“Anyone could drive in,” says David in a clip. “Why are my instincts telling me that’s a bad thing?

“Because you’ve seen ‘E.T.’ or ‘Splash’ or any other movie where they find something magical and study it to death,” says a very disgruntled Leroy.

Could this mysterious stranger be Frankenstein?

But it’s not all mysterious strangers and flashbacks as Hook is handcuffed to his hospital bed, bleeding into his own chest cavity. “Soon he’ll be drowning in his own blood,” notes the doctor.

In last week’s episode, he failed to kill Cora, and took on Rumplestiltskin in a fight he didn’t win.

“If I were to pick dead guy of the year, I’d pick you,” Emma says, alluding to a notoriously vengeful Rumplestiltskin.

And if Rumple wasn’t enough evil for one episode, Cora continues to out evil everyone, this time stalking Henry as he enters Regina’s crypt. Creepy!!
