On the Set: Everything you need to know about Once Upon a Time's 100th episode

Magic truly comes alive for Once Upon a Time’s 100th episode. Smoke machines blanket an entire icy warehouse, forcing cast and crew alike to don gas masks. Dry-ice bubbles rise from the depths of an 80-foot-long pool, over which a wooden barge skims the dark surface, guided only by dim lanterns. It’s eerily quiet. That is, until someone starts synergistically singing “It’s a Small World.”

The crew has jumped aboard the ferryman’s boat, which will eventually take heroes and villains alike to the mouth of the Underworld. “You must be this tall to ride this ride,” jokes one crewman, who will spend the day retracting the ship in order to send it on the brief but slow journey into depths of Hell. Unable to see five feet in front of them, the weapons-clad cast boards the ship, ready to stuff their respirators away once cameras start rolling. Emma (Jennifer Morrison) is back in her hero gear, the requisite red leather jacket cutting through the haze, as she lies prone in the boat, waking up with a start upon their arrival.

Once Upon a Time: It's time for Regina to become the hero

Though Once Upon a Time’s upcoming fifth season will heavily explore what it means for the savior (Jennifer Morrison) to turn to the dark side — oh so much scoop on that here — it should be noted that the fairy-tale drama will also be delving into quite the opposite: Regina (Lana Parrilla) will be stepping into the light.
