Gold has a plan to get everyone out of the Underworld in short order… it just involves tracking down his ex-wife.

On Sunday’s Once Upon a Time, Rumple (Robert Carlyle) believes he can use Milah (Rachel Shelley) to help track down Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), which will make things a little complicated — Milah is also Hook’s ex-lover.

“As we set up in the premiere, the theme of this half is unfinished business,” executive producer Edward Kitsis says. “I can’t think of a couple that has more unfinished business than Milah and Rumple, considering the last time they saw each other, he killed her and then cut her new boyfriend’s hand off.”

“Then there’s the added complication of Milah’s connection to Hook and also how that affects Emma [Jennifer Morrison] and so many others,” says EP Adam Horowitz, “which we think provides for an interesting reunion.” But Kitsis interjects: “Awkward would be what I would say.”

Check out an exclusive sneak peek at Sunday’s episode, which airs at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
