"Sisterhood" is the fifteenth episode of Season Seven of ABC's Once Upon a Time. It was written by Christopher Hollier & Adam Karp, and directed by Ellen S. Pressman. It is the one hundred and forty-eighth episode of the series overall and premiered on March 30, 2018.


When the Candy Killer attacks, Ivy will have to risk what remains of her family, while Jacinda and Henry grow closer and Roni questions her relationship with Samdi. Meanwhile, Drizella faces an unthinkable challenge in her attempt to join the Witch's Coven.[2]

Event Chronology

  • When Ivy enters the pub, Roni is pouring four shots of MacCutcheon Scotch Whisky,[6] a fictional brand on Lost. However, when she sees Ivy, Roni removes the bottle and snidely remarks that they have a strict "no whisky for witches" policy.

Fairytales and Folklore

Popular Culture

  • The same song could be heard when Henry was having drinks with Ivy in "Beauty", and when Henry was sitting at the bar and received a text message from Jacinda in "A Taste of the Heights".++

Props Notes

Set Dressing

  • HIDDEN DETAILS: When Ivy seeks out Roni at the bar, you can see that the label on the beer bottle sitting on the counter begins with the letters "Asch".[17] When Henry gets a bottle of the same brand from Ivy's stepsister Jacinda in "A Pirate's Life", you can see that the full name of the fictional brand is Aschenputtel,[18] which is the German name for Jacinda's New Enchanted Forest counterpart, Cinderella.
