Once Upon a Time: 13 Times Loved Ones Said Goodbye

at .  Updated at . Comments

Emma will be trying to get back to her family on Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 11.

Trapped in the Wish Realm created by the Evil Queen, Emma's surrounded by characters resembling her loved ones. But she wants the real versions, which means finding a way home.

Separating families, true loves, and friends is nothing new for Once Upon a Time. The theme is built into the fabric of the show, which started with Snow and Charming sending baby Emma through a portal.

Since then, we've seen characters doing everything in their power to reunite with the people who matter most. And we've cheered, cried, and sat on the edge of our seats through all of them.

Take a look at some of our favorite moments below, and feel free to share yours in the comments. Want to relive them or catch up? You can watch Once Upon a Time online anytime!
