—Lucy to Henry src

Lucy Mills,[2] also known as Luce and Little Girl,[3] is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time. She débuts in the twenty-first episode of the sixth season and is portrayed by starring cast member Alison Fernandez.


After Fourth Curse

After the final battle between Emma and Gideon, Henry leaves Storybrooke for another realm, where he meets and falls in love with Cinderella, whom he later marries. ("The Final Battle Part 1", "The Final Battle Part 2", "Hyperion Heights")

Sometime after Cinderella gives birth to her and Henry's child, Henry cradles his new baby daughter Lucy in a blanket and proudly introduces Hook, Jack and Tiana to her, only for Drizella to stir up trouble by telling the heroes that on her step-niece's eighth birthday, the Dark Curse will be cast. The heroes take out Drizella with blood magic and turn her into a statue, however, before being transformed completely, Drizella vows to be back in eight years. ("The Eighth Witch")

Before Tiana's coronation ceremony, Lucy is resting in a nearby cradle in the castle as Tiana asks her mother Eudora, Henry, Ella, and Regina to come out with her to greet her subjects as she trusts them to help her protect her people. As Henry prepares to exit the room, he picks up Lucy from her crib and leaves with her. ("A Taste of the Heights")

In the courtyard of Queen Tiana's castle, Cinderella and Henry sit under a pavilion as they fawn over their baby daughter, while Hook sadly watches them, reminded of his own daughter whom he is separated from. As Henry passes Lucy into Cinderella's arms, the couple is startled by the appearance of an open portal as Regina's half-sister Zelena comes through. A little later, Cinderella and Henry continue looking after Lucy while Zelena and Regina get into a heated argument. ("Secret Garden")

Around a campfire in the woods, Henry holds Lucy as Ella, Zelena, Hook and Regina sit near him.[4] As Henry bounces his daughter in his arms, Hook makes silly faces at the child, which Alice observes from a distance through a spyglass. ("The Girl in the Tower")

Years later, during Lucy's eighth birthday, Tiana hosts a party for her in the castle courtyard, where Lucy's parents, Jack, Regina, and Hook are in attendance. Regina helps light the candles on the birthday cake, but before Lucy can blow out the candles, they go out by themselves as Gothel mysteriously in the company of five other witches as she frees Drizella from her statue form. Gothel then takes Drizella away with her, with plans of helping her enact the curse. Later in the courtyard, Lucy clutches the storybook as her parents come to check up on her and reassure her that Drizella won't succeed since they have a plan to keep everyone safe. Lucy learns she is part of the plan, to which she excitedly asks if she gets a sword. Henry and Cinderella chuckle at her enthusiasm and instead send her off to pack her things. As the pair watch their daughter leave the courtyard, Cinderella begins to cry and expresses doubts to Henry about the plan, but Henry insists it has to be done to protect everyone if Regina can't stop the curse. ("The Eighth Witch")

On his motorcycle, Henry takes Lucy to the oldest part of the realm to show her a tree with the same magic that once brought her grandmother to Storybrooke. Henry also introduces her to Tiger Lily, a fairy from Neverland who helped him find the tree. When Tiger Lily gives Geppetto's ax to Henry so he can cut down the tree, an alarmed Lucy realizes her father intends to make a portal out of it, much like the magic wardrobe. Henry persuades her that it's just a last resort if the curse happens, in which the both of them will cross over to another world to find their people and use the storybook to help them believe again. While Henry stays behind to hack down the tree, Lucy is taken to Tiger Lily's hideout, where she falls asleep, but by nightfall, Henry arrives to frantically wake her up because Gothel's minions have found them. Lucy is frightened by his urgency, but Henry tells her to take her book and keep it safe. She swears to protect it with her life but is assured that it will not come to that. Henry kisses her on the head before she runs off through a back exit and he goes to fight off the intruders. Later, Lucy returns to the ruins of this shack and searches for her father but cannot find him. Tiger Lily comes to console her, telling her that Lucy did the right thing as the book is very important and she must share the stories inside of it. Lucy doesn't think anyone will believe her, but Tiger Lily promises someone will. Tiger Lily also reveals to a distraught Lucy that the fairies have seen the future and know that Lucy and Henry will be reunited, however, the future is unclear and she cannot confirm they will be all right, just that they will be reunited. She then urges Lucy to go find her mother. ("The Final Battle Part 1", "The Final Battle Part 2", "The Eighth Witch ")

With Tiger Lily by her side, Lucy runs back to the castle to alert her mother that Henry was taken by the witches. Tiana agrees to stay behind to look after Lucy while everyone else goes to rescue Henry, but Cinderella stops them from going as she realizes this is all part of Drizella's scheme to distract them from the curse. After Regina is forced by Drizella to cast the curse, Cinderella wonders what will happen to Lucy once they are in this new land as she'll lose her memories and be unable to find her, however, Hook gives her the white elephant figurine to ensure she and Lucy will remain together even if they are cursed with new memories. Lucy clings onto Tiana for support in the castle courtyard as the curse overtakes them. ("The Eighth Witch")

During Fifth Curse

After Regina cast Drizella's curse to save Henry's life, Lucy lives in Hyperion Heights with her step-grandmother, Victoria Belfrey, who is her legal guardian. Lucy's mother, Jacinda Vidrio, has cursed memories of a brief relationship with Nick Branson, which resulted in her pregnancy, but was unable to take care of Lucy so she let Victoria have the custody of her. As part of her cursed memories, Lucy believes the stories from Henry's novel, knowing that he is her father, and also thinks that her step-grandmother is responsible for the separation as well as everyone's cursed memories. Deciding to seek out her real father even though he has no memory of her, she sneaks out to board a train and arrives at his apartment doorstep. She readies herself by knocking on the door, and when a man answers, she asks if he is Henry Mills. When he confirms that he is, she introduces herself as his daughter, though, due to the curse, he believes he doesn't have a daughter; however, she insists he does and that his family needs him. ("The Final Battle Part 2", "Hyperion Heights", "Pretty in Blue", "The Eighth Witch")

Pushing her way into Henry's apartment, Lucy regards his shoddy and unkempt home, noting that despite that he is her favorite author, he hasn't had much success. She tries to persuade him that everything he wrote in his book actually happened to him and his family, and insists he returns to Hyperion Heights with her to rescue them from a curse, including her mom, who was his true love Cinderella. Because Henry does not buy her story and unceremoniously tells her to go home, Lucy does go, however, she secretly swipes Henry's laptop and leaves him a sticky note requesting that he meet her at Roni's in Hyperion Heights. While attempting to make a wish at a wishing well in an abandoned lot, she is found by Jacinda, who reprimands her for her disappearing act. Lucy tells her mother about finding a quarter at the well and how she has taken it to be a sign that change is just around the corner. Jacinda allows her to toss the coin in before ushering her to hurry up so she's not late for ballet class. After being questioned by her mother about where she was, Lucy confesses to going to find Henry. Jacinda then takes Henry's stolen laptop and returns it to him at Roni's. Meanwhile, Lucy is in the lot sprinkling hyacinth seeds in the soil beds when Henry confronts her for causing his car to be stolen, but she denies it. She tries to stop him from leaving for good, insisting that he has cursed memories and that is why he doesn't remember her as his daughter and her mother as his wife. Lucy suggests the reason why he also has been unable to write anything is that he doesn't believe in the truth yet, however, Henry simply apologizes and departs. When Victoria announces her intentions of refusing to let her see Lucy again, Jacinda attempts to prevent this by taking her daughter to Bainbridge Island so they can have a fresh start together. Jacinda's car breaks down during the trip, which Lucy points out is because the curse doesn't want them to leave, but an undeterred Jacinda has her walk with her instead. After Lucy refuses to go, her mother reveals her desire to not be separated from her if Victoria refuses to let them see each other. Lucy's main concerns rest on Henry and breaking the curse, but Jacinda implores her to put aside her imaginative thinking and believe in her just this once. Lucy agrees, and as she and her mother hug, Officer Rogers and Jacinda's stepsister Ivy show up to retrieve Lucy. Much to the girl's protestations, Ivy takes Lucy's copy of Henry's book and asks Rogers to dispose of it, before ushering her niece into the car with her. ("Hyperion Heights")

After the planted seeds in the garden bloom into hyacinth flowers, Lucy sends Victoria some of the flowers with an accompanying note. Lucy later has a ballet recital, which her step-grandmother turns into a charity event as an excuse to charge for tickets so that Jacinda cannot afford to attend. However, thanks to the help of Henry and Sabine, Jacinda manages to get a job as a caterer for the recital and is reunited with her daughter at the event. Lucy is delighted not only to see her mother but also to learn Henry was involved, as she hopes it means he is starting to believe. ("A Pirate's Life")

While Lucy is unable to see her mother on a regular basis anymore, she and Jacinda take to leaving letters for each other in the garden's wishing well. Lucy becomes pleased by her mother taking the initiative to save the garden from Victoria's demolition plans, and she visits Henry in the bar to show him that 100 signatures have been collected so far. Henry wonders why she isn't more upset about the garden's possible demise, to which Lucy reveals she isn't because it's giving her mother something to fight for and hopefully wake up from the curse. Lucy then tells him a secret about the demolition, in that it's not about the condos but something hidden below it which Victoria wants to retrieve. At the dig site, Lucy becomes excited upon seeing something in the ground has been unearthed and hops into the underground tunnel to find it, as a concerned Henry follows her in. Henry remains skeptical of Lucy's claims that there is something magical hidden inside, while Lucy once again challenges him about his cursed memories and the nonexistent cemetery where his family is supposedly buried. When they reach a dead-end in the tunnel, Henry is convinced there is nothing more to see, but Lucy picks up a shiny item from the ground: a piece of Cinderella's glass slipper. Lucy believes it is more than enough proof that the curse is real and vows to give to her mother to make her remember. Sometime after escaping the tunnel, Lucy splits from Henry to go find her mother, only to witness Jacinda burning the signed petitions in order to accept a deal from Victoria. Jacinda tries to explain she did it for her so they can be together as a family, but Lucy is disappointed in her mother, declaring to her that she'd rather be apart if she is giving up on fighting for the garden. A glum Lucy is later found by Henry on the streets before they both spot a rally going on at the demolition site. There, they hear Jacinda persuade the residents to sign the petition again and join her in reinvigorating the garden. Afterward, Henry has ice cream with Jacinda and Lucy. He parts ways from them, but Lucy rushes up to give him the slipper, telling him that as her mother is already becoming a hero, he should have it as a reminder he will find his true love even if he thinks she is gone. Henry is a little exasperated by her claims, though Lucy placates him with the suggestion that he won't find his family in some cemetery and that all he has to do is believe she and her mom are the ones he is looking for. Lucy then runs off back to her mother and hugs her as Henry watches the warm exchange. ("The Garden of Forking Paths")

Provided with a Halloween costume from her mother, Lucy wears it to go trick-or-treating, but she is forced to wear a paper bag with a poorly drawn skeleton face since Ivy won't help paint her face. The girl begs to go to the south end of the street where there is a haunted house, but Ivy instead complains about how she's missing the masquerade ball because Victoria wanted Lucy to have fun on Halloween. Lucy insists her step-aunt is not missing anything as she did not get invited to the ball, and further explains that she overheard her complaining about it on the phone. An irritated Ivy suggests that Lucy should consider wearing that paper bag all year round, to which Lucy storms off to a nearby house on her own. At the house, Lucy hopes to get an Apollo bar but instead, she receives a Milk Dud. She trades it to a girl in an Elsa costume and allows her to take her place. While the girl puts on the paper bag and returns to Ivy, Lucy goes to explore the haunted house. She is eventually found by Henry and Ivy, both of whom bring her back to Jacinda. Although Ivy expresses annoyance over Lucy's troublesome behavior, she mentions there is an hour of trick-or-treating left and that perhaps Jacinda, Lucy, and Henry could go altogether. Lucy questions what will happen if Victoria finds out, to which Ivy agrees to take care of it if anything happens. After Ivy's departure, Lucy excitedly goes to prepare her make-up kit so her parents can help draw on her face. Henry, however, decides to not stay as he doesn't want to get in the way of their mother and daughter bonding. ("Beauty")

In Belfrey Towers, Lucy is sitting near the reception desk as she complains to Ivy about Victoria being late with picking her up for ballet lessons, to which Ivy shushes her as she is too busy texting and tells her that she is looking for an "annoyed babysitter" emoji. Sabine arrives to drop off beignets for Lucy, who she remarks is her "favorite taste-tester". Victoria then arrives, with Ivy questioning her whereabouts as she had been trying to get ahold of her for the last hour. Victoria sends Ivy to go to the herbalist shop and then tells Sabine that her rent agreement is being raised by 8%. Sabine tells Victoria that she will find a way to fight against her. Sometime later, Lucy sees Jacinda and Sabine's pop-up ad on her ballet instructor's phone, so she goes to the restaurant and proposes they use a firefly logo for their new beignet business, which Sabine approves of. After a fire burns down the restaurant, Jacinda is furious that Sabine convinced her to deliver a huge risk with the promise that their lives will be better when it won't. Sabine then, despite Lucy's protests, gives Jacinda the rent money and agrees to move out. As Sabine is packing up, Lucy tries to stop her, but Sabine believes that she needs to face reality. Lucy insists that Sabine is actually running away and that she should stay with Jacinda and Lucy, to which Sabine tells Lucy that she will always have her but there are some things she can't fight against. Although unable to stop Sabine from leaving, Lucy later manages to change her mother's opinion and persuade her to make up with Sabine. ("Greenbacks")

Somehow, Lucy learns about a certain picture that Henry and Roni have that relates to their pre-cursed lives. She rushes into the bar asking to see it and recognizes the boy in the photo as a young Henry and the older, sophisticated woman as Roni, who was the Evil Queen Regina and that she adopted Henry from Boston when he was an infant. Lucy then brainstorms a way to help Roni remember her true self and goes off to execute this plan by returning to her old room in Jacinda and Sabine's apartment. Recalling from Henry's book that Mary Margaret Blanchard once found the fairytale storybook in her closet one day, Lucy attempts to do the same, to no avail as the book does not appear for her. Roni finds her there, and Lucy explains the book could restore Roni's memories if she touches it. She persuades Lucy that she is willing to take a chance in believing, and then they team up by asking Weaver to procure the adoption papers that Regina signed. ("Wake Up Call")

As Victoria scolds her granddaughter for sneaking out into town without her permission, Lucy expresses little care about getting caught, to which an enraged Victoria grounds her by sending her to her room. Lucy defiantly tells her grandmother that she can punish her now, however, when her parents break the curse and her family is reunited, Victoria will be the one left all alone. After getting the last word in the conversation, a defiant Lucy strides out of the room. After Victoria's arrest, Lucy is confused about what is going on when her mother comes to meet with her at Belfrey Towers. Jacinda believes she can finally take Lucy home since Victoria is now unable to act as her daughter's legal guardian, however, social services take custody of the girl. Lucy is frightened by this and begs her mother to not let them take her, but Jacinda has no choice but to comply with the authorities' demands. ("Eloise Gardener")

At her new foster home, Lucy is visited by her mother, who tries to reassure her that she is working on a way so they can be together again. Urged by Sabine, Jacinda contacts Nick, her ex and Lucy's "biological father", for legal help as he is now a lawyer. When Henry drops by the foster home with his book, Lucy prepares to use it to figure out who Nick is supposed to be. She theorizes Nick is the third party in the curse's love triangle similar position Kathryn had with her great-grandparents. Lucy pushes Henry to fight for Jacinda's affections and suggests he can start by fixing the food truck engine. After Henry mistakenly believes Jacinda is together with Nick, Jacinda admits that she was trying to get into Nick's good graces because, as she remembers it, she was too ashamed to have forfeited custody of Lucy to Victoria. She is also afraid of Lucy finding out the truth, but Henry convinces her to trust that her daughter will understand why she did it. Jacinda follows Henry's advice about being honest with Nick, and in the end, Nick is able to return Lucy to her mom. Upon being picked up by her mom at the foster home, Lucy is introduced to Nick for the first time. ("Pretty in Blue")

Now back with Jacinda in the apartment, Lucy asks her mom if they can invite Henry over to share their good news with him. Jacinda, hesitant admit to her that Henry recently left for a trip, instead says maybe they could figure it out tomorrow. Lucy then goes to grab her bag from her room, and after she returns, Jacinda accompanies her to school. After ballet lessons, Lucy finds Victoria waiting for her in the hallway. She tries to brush the woman off but becomes enticed when Victoria shows her the storybook and allows her to look through it. From reading the book, Lucy learns Victoria is Rapunzel and that she poisoned her biological grandmother. Victoria brings her to the hospital to see her comatose daughter, Anastasia, in an attempt to open Lucy's eyes to the reality of this fairytale, as she once sacrificed everything for her family and did not get a happy ending. Lucy insists people can if they work for it and stubbornly believes she and her parents will get that in the end. Victoria shatters these hopes by playing a video of Jacinda and Nick kissing to prove Henry means nothing to her mother, especially since Henry has already left town and that no matter how hard Lucy believes, her dream of a reunited family won't happen. As Lucy sheds tears of grief and lets go of her belief, one of her tears fall onto the storybook, which Victoria collects and drips onto Anastasia's body. Meanwhile, Weaver, who had helped Victoria retrieve the storybook for his own benefit, learns from Gothel that for Victoria to revive Anastasia, she must sacrifice an innocent's belief. He searches for Lucy, hoping to reach her in time, but only finds his great-granddaughter's discarded schoolbag. A saddened Lucy wanders the streets until she returns to her mother just as Victoria drips the collected tear onto Anastasia, reawakening her, while Lucy suddenly collapses in Jacinda's arms. ("One Little Tear")

After Lucy is rushed to the hospital into intensive care, Jacinda phones Henry, who takes a flight from San Francisco to Hyperion Heights. Jacinda encourages him to read his novel to Lucy as it always gave her strength when she needed it. While Jacinda eventually falls asleep on the chair beside her daughter's hospital bed, Henry reads up to the part where Emma begins to believe in magic and saves her son's life with true love's kiss. Henry gets choked up as he tells Lucy that he, too, would believe in the impossible if it meant he could save her life, including the reality of a world where he truly is her father. He swears he does believe it, and then leans over to kiss her on the forehead, but Lucy does not wake up even after this because of her lost belief, as both people must believe in order for true love's kiss to work. Regina, while still in San Francisco, realizes Lucy can only be helped if the curse is no longer intact, but Henry will die if the curse is broken. ("The Eighth Witch")

With Lucy continuing to be nonresponsive, Doctor Sage runs tests to find the cause of her condition, however, the results are inconclusive. The doctor then asks for a blood donation from both of the girl's parents as proof of a genetic match in case an emergency arises and a donor is needed. As Jacinda and Nick go to begin the procedure, Doctor Sage goes to Lucy's bedside to check her vitals. Despite knowing the low chance of a match since he is supposedly not related to Lucy, Henry asks to be tested as well. Gothel, wanting to reclaim the Resurrection Amulet for herself, agrees to bring back Lucy if Kelly gives it to her. Despite her earlier willingness to sacrifice Lucy for Anastasia, Victoria makes Regina forfeit the amulet, which she relinquishes to Gothel to allow for Lucy's revival, though she does not realize until it's too late that another life must be sacrificed for the resurrection to work. Gothel attempts to drain Ivy's life force, but Victoria allows herself to die in her place instead as Lucy awakens from her coma. Later while Doctor Sage is looking over the test results, she discovers Henry is actually Lucy's biological father, not Nick. Before she has time to process this discovery, the evidence is taken away by a mysterious man who poisons the doctor. ("Secret Garden")

After Victoria's body is buried in the cemetery, a saddened Lucy visits her gravestone to place some blue hyacinth flowers there. She and her mother drop by the food truck, where Sabine is busy preparing for the food fair. Lucy wants to help, but Sabine says she and Jacinda should use their time to catch up, which leads Lucy to suggest inviting Henry over as a way to thank him for his support while she was in the hospital. Later, Henry comes over after accepting Jacinda's invitation. Lucy tells him about the actual storybook that Victoria showed her and how it finally confirms everything she believes is real. She admits she doesn't know where the book is now, but that the most important thing now is Henry gives her mother true love's kiss and breaks the curse, restoring everyone's memories of each other. During the night, Lucy beats Henry in checkers many times. She thanks her mom for the hot cocoa before turning in early for the evening in order to give her and Henry some alone time together. While Lucy is reading Henry's book in bed and sipping her cocoa, her closet door mysteriously creaks open, causing her to investigate but she finds nothing inside. However, when she hops back onto her bed, a folded up storybook page slips out from the book. She learns from reading it that if true love's kiss ever breaks the curse, Henry will die. Shocked, she hurries into the living room, stopping Jacinda and Henry as they were just about to kiss, insisting she can't sleep after having a nightmare and now wants to finish another game with them. For the rest of the night, Lucy begins acting differently towards Henry, giving him the impression she thinks he is not good enough for Jacinda. ("A Taste of the Heights", "Knightfall")

In her room, Lucy is lost in thought as she thinks about Henry's fate if the curse breaks. She scrambles to hide the storybook page and starts pretending to do her homework when her mother comes in with her favorite dish, mac and cheese. Lucy feigns disinterest, but Jacinda sits down to talk to her about her shifting behavior with Henry last night. Lucy insists she is just overwhelmed after her stint in the hospital as well as her grandmother's death and needs her mother with her instead of her spending time with some guy. Jacinda reminds Lucy that Henry isn't "some guy" as he is her favorite author, however, the girl lies and says he used to be, but after going through some real-life bad experiences, maybe she doesn't believe in fairytales anymore, declaring that she doesn't want her mother to see Henry again. That night, Lucy stops by the bar to inform Roni about the storybook page that explains Henry will die if the curse is broken. Roni reveals to Lucy that, unlike last time they spoke about the curse, she is now awake and remembers her time as the Evil Queen. They decide to figure out a way to save Henry just like Henry did when he was Lucy's age; with walkie-talkies and an operation name: Operation Hyacinth. ("Knightfall")

At the bar, Roni shows Lucy a pair of walkie-talkies they will be using, but the girl finds them to be clunky and strange looking. She eventually persuades Roni to use their phones to text each other instead. To begin the operation, Roni brings up Mr. Samdi, whom Lucy recognizes as the voodoo doctor Dr. Facilier and suggests he might have a cure for Henry. Roni suggests they should figure out what Samdi is doing in Hyperion Heights first and that Kelly cannot know about it. Just then, Kelly approaches to ask what she cannot know, which Roni plays off by saying she was thinking about adding a kid's menu to the bar. Lucy then leaves with her adoptive grandmother, who walks her home. The next day, Roni lures Samdi out with a date but tampers with his apartment door to ensure Lucy can sneak in later. While searching through Samdi's things, Lucy fails to notice her phone screen light up after Roni texts her with a warning that Samdi is coming back. She sees Samdi's tarot deck on the table, notably the death card that piques her interest, and only then she reaches for her phone to read Roni's text. After snapping a quick photo of the tarot deck, Lucy grabs her bag and scurries under the table just as Samdi walks through the door to go upstairs, giving Lucy the spare time to flee the apartment. However, she forgets to take her hat, which Samdi later finds and confronts Roni about what she and her granddaughter are up to. ("The Girl in the Tower")

After Jacinda sets up dinner with Sabine at a restaurant, Lucy goes with her mom to Roni's bar, where Jacinda is picking up a food order for her daughter's evening in with a babysitter. Lucy goes to sit down at the counter with a grim expression on her face while Jacinda pops outside to answer a call from the sitter. Roni gives her a glass of cocoa to cheer her up, but Lucy tells her how bad she feels for having to keep her mom and Henry apart, especially since Jacinda has Sabine to lean on but Henry has no one. However, Roni recalls Henry did have two close friends in the New Enchanted Forest; Captain Hook who is now Officer Rogers and Jack who is now Nick in Hyperion Heights. Lucy is shocked her real dad and cursed dad were friends, but going by Roni's suggestion that it would be good for the three men to develop the rapport they had before the curse, she works on Operation Bromance by texting all three of them to make them meet up at the same location. For both Henry and Nick, she messages them to meet her at Flynn's Barcade, and for Rogers, she simply tells him to find Henry there because he has information about the Candy Killer case. ("Sisterhood")

While Roni is away from the bar, Lucy is in the backroom helping Kelly with a cauldron brew to cure Henry's poisoned heart which she states will only become magical if her sister finds the last ingredient. When Kelly explains that Henry's heart will remain poisoned and the curse will stay intact if Roni can't get the ingredient, Lucy is saddened by both possibilities as she wants the curse broken so she can stop lying to her mother. Lucy's great-aunt relates to her pain, and she tells her about wanting to be truthful with her daughter, Margot, but fears she will think she is crazy. Later, Lucy departs from the bar as Kelly walks sees her off, telling her that she'll call her as soon as Roni returns. The girl then goes home to talk to her mother about Henry, insisting that she has a good feeling about them. Jacinda recalls how coldly Lucy treated him last time, but Lucy insists she was just scared of all the changes that were going to happen in their lives and that she truly wants her and Henry together. Lucy notices Jacinda's phone is open to Henry's contact number, and upon learning from her mother that he is headed to New York for a job offer, she persuades her to call him and convince him to stay. Jacinda phones him, however, he does not pick up, as a result of being held captive by Nick, who's awake. ("Breadcrumbs")

One morning in the apartment, Lucy is at the kitchen table working on an assignment as Jacinda is spacing out while cooking pancakes. Sabine helps to scoop up the pancakes before they burn, while Jacinda mentions being distracted thinking about Henry, who hasn't texted her since he left for New York. However, when a text does arrive on Jacinda's phone, Lucy excitedly asks if it's from Henry, and her mom confirms it is by reading the text which says his interview went well and he will catch her up with the details later. As Sabine leaves for work, she says goodbye to Lucy on her way out. After Henry is rescued from Nick's apartment by Rogers, he hurries to Jacinda's place, where Jacinda and Lucy happily reunite with him and he tells them he has decided to forget about the job interview. ("Chosen")

Charming her way past a desk attendant, Lucy goes into an elevator to reach the floor for Samdi's office, where she notices he is distracted because Roni is not returning his calls. She tells him what went down between Roni and Weaver, with the latter having stolen the only bit of magic Roni had in order to locate the dagger, and now Roni is busy searching for another way to cure Henry. Lucy suggests if he gave Roni magic before, he can do it again, though Samdi has none left as magic in this land is very hard to come by. The girl ponders how grateful Roni would be if he helped save Henry or how upset Roni would be if she told her that Samdi refused to help. Humored by Lucy's attempt to blackmail him, Samdi agrees to help on the condition that she bring him an item that came over with the curse and which symbolizes the love between her parents. Pretending to be nostalgic about the past, Lucy looks through boxes of some of her and Jacinda's old belongings. She prepares to open a box labeled "BL" for "Before Lucy", but then her mother asks her about what she's actually hunting for in these boxes. Lucy admits she is looking for evidence Henry is her father, and as crazy as it seems, she recalls that she once believed in her when they almost ran away to Bainbridge Island and now she needs her mother to believe in her too. In the box, there is a t-shirt from Granny's which Jacinda does not recognize, but Lucy remembers from Henry's book that it's a diner from where he grew up. Lucy then finds a takeout bag from Granny's with a glass slipper inside it. Even Jacinda is shocked by the discovery as Lucy excitedly declares her mom truly is Cinderella. Lucy brings the slipper to Samdi, who instructs her to return to her parents after he has completed the ritual and ensure that they break the curse with true love's kiss. Once Samdi uses shards of the slipper to dissolve the poison in Henry's heart, Lucy makes her way home, arriving there shortly after her parents share true love's kiss, however, she soon realizes the curse hasn't broken because she doesn't remember anything from her life in the New Enchanted Forest. ("Flower Child")

With the curse still not broken, Lucy runs off to tell Roni what happened. In the midst of a storm overtaking Hyperion Heights, they encounter Gothel, who reveals she brought magic back and intends to have all of humanity wiped out once the spell is complete. Gothel states it's unlikely they will defeat her since even Henry could not break the curse, to which Lucy questions what she did to her father. The witch says she didn't have to do anything as Henry grew up and lost his belief on his own. Lucy returns home after notifying her great-grandfather of what transpired. As Jacinda is packing for an upcoming trip to Bainbridge Island with her daughter and Henry, Lucy receives a text from Roni asking her to meet her at the cemetery. Jacinda tries to interest her in helping to pack, but Lucy wonders if they shouldn't go since the weather is bad. When Sabine finds a spare bag for Lucy to use, she mentions that she still hasn't heard from Drew. Lucy discovers a tarot card inside the bag, and after Sabine confirms Drew used the bag before, she suggests Samdi may know where he is. While Jacinda goes with Sabine to speak with Samdi, Lucy sneaks off to the cemetery, where Roni is looking at the headstones of Henry's alleged wife and daughter. Roni believes Henry's belief can be restored if he gets his memory back by touching the storybook, which she suspects was interred with Victoria's body. After Roni retrieves the book, Lucy later tricks Henry into coming to the bar so he can test the theory, however, nothing happens after Henry touches the book. An upset Lucy runs off, and Henry later accompanies her home, where she berates him for having the choice to believe but choosing not to, although Henry insists that's not how the world works and she'll understand when she's older. Before slamming her bedroom door in Henry's face, Lucy retorts that she wishes he could remember what it felt like to have belief as a kid and to have never grown up. A little later, she comes out of her room and notices a strange look on Henry's face. Henry, who just regained his memories, grabs her into a hug and tells her to call him Dad instead of Henry. She is elated that he finally remembered and asks how it happened. Henry tells her briefly about the phone call he and his younger self had but insists on telling her the details later as he has to go find Roni. ("Is This Henry Mills?")

After Fifth Curse

After Henry breaks the Dark Curse by giving true love's kiss to Roni and Gothel is defeated by Tilly, Lucy arrives to the Community Gardens to reunite with her parents. ("Is This Henry Mills?")

As citizens of Hyperion Heights celebrate at Roni's, Lucy joins her parents there. Henry gets both of them drinks, with a hot cocoa with cinnamon for Lucy and one of Roni's special drinks called the "weed killer" for Jacinda. Roni toasts them in honor of their family reunion, just as Margot and Tilly bring in a batch of Sabine's baked beignets. Later at Henry's apartment, Lucy makes frosted cupcakes for her parents which are topped with individually lit candles. Henry tells them about how own mother made a wish on a cupcake that spurred on his reunion with her, and now that he has been reunited with his family, he doesn't know what to wish for. The three of them smile at each other and then blow out the candles together. However, in the next instant, Lucy and her mother are whisked away by Rumplestiltskin of the Wish Realm and entrapped in a snow globe in his castle. Henry, upon finding his family gone, is pressured by Rumplestiltskin to giving him Weaver's dagger if he wishes to see his family again. With Roni, Rogers, and Weaver, Henry uses Tilly's looking glass, which, unknown to them, Rumplestiltskin has tampered with in order to separate them into specific locations once they arrive in the Wish Realm. Henry and Roni, ending up in the Dark One's castle, eventually locate a room where they hear Lucy and Jacinda's cries for help from inside the snow globe. Since Henry is unwilling to forfeit Weaver's happiness for his own, Rumplestiltskin creates a snowstorm in the snow globe, warning him that he has until midnight before snow completely fills up the globe and his family dies. As only Rumplestiltskin's magic can undo the prison that Lucy and Jacinda are in, Weaver attempts to single-handedly defeat the Dark One by tricking him into touching the squid ink-covered dagger and then stabbing him to eliminate the threat he poses, but it all goes awry when the ink wears off too fast. After Sir Henry aids Rumplestiltskin with the Author's pen, the Dark One banishes Henry, Weaver, and Rogers into the same snowglobe world. ("Homecoming")

As the storm rages on in the globe world, Lucy and her mother seek shelter in a cabin, where they wait out the cold until her father, Rogers, and great-grandfather arrive. Rogers and Weaver make a futile attempt at breaking the glass around the globe, but after being provided with Maui's hook from Tilly, Margot, and past Storybrooke's Zelena, they are all able to get out safely. Eventually, Weaver sacrifices his life to kill the Dark One, saving them all. ("Leaving Storybrooke")

After Sixth Curse
After Regina unites all the realms, the citizens of the United Realms elect her as their new Queen. Lucy attends the surprise coronation with her parents, where she and the other people present applaud Regina as she walks in. The ceremony is briefly halted when Emma, Hook, and baby Hope arrive late before Snow White crowns Regina with the title "The Good Queen". Afterward, Regina gives a resounding speech to her family and new subjects about the wonders and losses that are a part of life and makes people who they are. ("Leaving Storybrooke")

Character Notes

  • During the present events of Season Seven, Lucy is 10 years old.[7]
    • However, by some occasions, the show creators stated that she is nine.[8]
  • Lucy's letter to her mother reads:[9]

Dear mom,
I miss you so, so much.
But being apart is just
going to make it even
better when we're
finally back together.
Things will change soon
I know it. We just can't
give up hope. I promise
you that I never, ever will.

("The Garden of Forking Paths")

Production Notes

  • The casting call describes her as "a precocious 10-year-old with a 'constant twinkle of mischief in her eye'. And though this girl comes from a broken home, those struggles have only made her stronger — something which will come in handy when darkness threatens 'everything she holds dear'. She 'never lets the hard knocks of life get her down'".[10]

We're going to start with the beginnings of how did Henry meet Cinderella?””

  10. Mitovich, Matt Webb (February 16, 2017). The Once Upon a Time 'Reset' Plan: How Do These New Characters Fit In?. TVLine. “Namely, the May finale will introduce a pair of guest stars, both of whom have the potential to join the ensemble as series regulars if the show moves forward. (...) The other role being cast is a precocious 10-year-old with a "constant twinkle of mischief in her eye." And though this girl comes from a broken home, those struggles have only made her stronger — something which will come in handy when darkness threatens "everything she holds dear." And while the character breakdown notes that this lass “never lets the hard knocks of life get her down,” you would be wrong to guess that she is a certain little orphan named Annie.”
