Shortly after Ingrid met a man named Albert Morrison. Emma and Ingrid are now moving in with Albert in his house in Storybrooke, Maine. Emma goes to a new high school, where she meets a lot of friends, including a dark-haired, blue-eyed boy. Everything is going fine and Emma is finally happy. But what happens when her stepdad gets abusive?
