Jennifer Morrison Posts ‘Once Upon a Time’ Memories in Honor of Emma’s Last Episode

That was it. Jennifer Morrison‘s final episode as Emma Swan.

“Once Upon a Time” premiered its semi-rebooted Season 7 in early October, introducing the new setting and new-ish characters. Episode 2, “A Pirate’s Life,” aired Friday, Oct. 13, focusing on Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and bringing back Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) to reveal “Emma’s fate.” That’s how Morrison put it in the #memorylane photos she posted before the episode.

Morrison could’ve been a full part of Season 7 but she elected to leave after Season 6, just agreeing to return for one more episode as Emma. Co-showrunner Edward Kitsis told TVLine that Emma fans would “feel happy, and relieved and, like anything, they’ll want more.” O’Donoghue described the episode to TV Guide as “epic, surprising, and loving,” while Andrew J. West (adult Henry) went with the three words “surprising, moving, and adventure.”

Here are the photos Morrison posted leading up to Episode 2:

“Once Upon a Time” Season 7 airs Fridays at 8 p.m. on ABC. Jennifer Morrison said she agreed to return for one more episode, just this one, but Ginnifer Goodwin said she and Josh Dallas will bring the Charmings back at some point, maybe in the series finale.
