Operation Glass Slipper is a mission featured on ABC's Once Upon a Time. It débuts in the first episode of the seventh season.


After Fourth Curse

In the New Enchanted Forest, Henry Mills meets Cinderella when he accidentally causes her carriage to crash. She steals his motorcycle and dagger to attend a ball, where she plans to murder the Prince, though Henry follows her and tries to convince her to come back home to Storybrooke with him instead, where she can start over. Cinderella refuses and runs off to complete the deed, but finds herself unable to go through with it. Unfortunately, her stepmother, Lady Tremaine, kills the Prince instead and frames Cinderella. Henry helps her escape, telling her to take his motorcycle and meet him where they first met to go through a portal to Storybrooke. When he arrives, she is nowhere to be found and he laments this; however, he soon spies her glass slipper laying in a garden of Hyacinths and realizes something must have happened to her. The portal closes and Henry picks up the glass slipper, announcing to himself that "Operation Glass Slipper" has begun. ("Hyperion Heights")

Later, Henry is chased by Lady Tremaine, who kidnaps him after he refuses to tell her where he hid the glass slipper. However, he manages to send a message to his family in Storybrooke, and Regina and Hook come to the New Enchanted Forest to save him. Then, Regina tries to use a locator spell on the slipper, but her magic doesn't work. ("A Pirate's Life")

After Lady Tremaine has made a deal with the Wish Realm version of Hook, in which he, pretending to be the original Hook, tells Henry and Regina that Cinderella wrote Henry a letter telling him she doesn't love him back, Henry decides to give up on the mission. However, after Hook changes his mind and presumably tells them the letter was fake, Henry, Wish Hook and Regina team up to continue Operation Glass Slipper by tracking down Cinderella's whereabouts. ("A Pirate's Life")

Regina's locator spell on the slipper eventually works, and the team find Cinderella, who has joined Princess Tiana's Resistance in order to defeat Lady Tremaine. Regina, Henry, and Hook also join the Resistance to help the cause. ("The Garden of Forking Paths")
