Welcome back... Regina.

Ivy to Roni

"Wake Up Call" is the sixth episode of Season Seven of ABC's Once Upon a Time. It was written by Jerome Schwartz & Jane Espenson, and directed by Sharat Raju. It is the one hundred and thirty-ninth episode of the series overall, and premiered on November 10, 2017.


Feeling like a third wheel as Henry and Cinderella's relationship strengthens, Regina is surprised to find herself needed by Drizella, who is searching for magic. But when a brutal truth is revealed, it could lead Drizella down a dangerous path. In Hyperion Heights, Roni seeks Weaver's help in finding answers, and Tilly offers Rogers some intriguing advice concerning Eloise Gardener.[2]


Deleted Scenes

A scene between Drizella and Regina, where Drizella makes a flower bloom with her magic, was cut from the final episode. However, the scene can still be seen in promotional photos.[3]

  • After Henry tells Regina that she was the first person who loved him, the scene becomes flipped. This is evident due to the fact Regina's cape was draped over her left shoulder,[33] but in the following shot, it is on her right.[34]
