In the world where fairy tales and the modern-day are about to collide, nothing will be the same again. A 10-year-old boy, Henry, found his mother Emma Swan, who abandoned him when he was a baby, and believes that she comes from an alternate world. According to his book, the epic battle for the future of both worlds is beginning and they need her help.
In the Enchanted Forest, during Queen Regina's unhappy marriage to King Leopold, a fairy named Tinker Bell is convinced she may assist her have true happiness by attaining true love. Using pixie dust, Tinker Bell leads Regina to a tavern. From the outside looking in, she points out the dust's effects have left a glowing effect on a man with a lion tattoo on his arm, who is Regina's true love. As the man, Robin Hood, has his back turned to the window from where Tinker Bell and Regina are peering in, they are unable to see his face. Tinker Bell urges her to go in, but shortly after the fairy leaves, Regina becomes afraid and flees from the scene without meeting her destined love.
With his group of Merry Men, Robin Hood pulls off a scheme on the road to stop a wealthy man's coach and steal money and jewels. A new recruit, Will Scarlet, comes by to drop a chestful of goods procured for them earlier on. Robin Hood accepts him into the group with a bit of advice, that Merry Men are not thieves and do not steal for themselves, but for others. Will proposes the next place they should go is Maleficent's castle, which is rumored to contain enough gold to feed the whole kingdom. Robin is evasive to the plan since the expedition is incredibly dangerous, but is tempted into accepting by both the amount of gold they will receive to help the poor as well as Maleficent being away from the castle.
Once inside, Robin Hood warns the Merry Men they will only be taking what is necessary and nothing else. After the mission is complete, they return to their base and celebrate the success. Suddenly, the displeased voice of Maleficent booms all around the camp site stating she cares little if they keep her gold, but demands the other item be returned immediately or there will be consequences. To the Merry Men, Robin Hood angrily calls out the thief among them to step forward, but all remain silent.
Later that night, Robin Hood catches Will attempting to make a hasty leave. Having realized Will stole from the castle and disobeyed orders, Robin Hood furtively questions him on his reasons for doing so. He finds an answer when Will looks down guiltily at the mention of a woman. Let down by Will's actions, Robin Hood gives the worst punishment he can think of, which is to let him go with a warning that his penance for stealing will come in the near future.
Robin Hood goes on to fall in love with the same person the Sheriff of Nottingham has feelings for; a woman named Marian. After winning Marian's affection and running away with her, the Sheriff harbors a long-life grudge against Robin Hood for the slight as well as for making him a laughingstock in Nottingham. Since then, he and Marian have been eluding the Sheriff. Marian, pregnant with Robin Hood's child, becomes deathly ill, and he risks his life to steal a wand from the Rumplestiltskin's castle to will heal her. In the process, he is caught red-handed by Rumplestiltskin, but confidently uses his bow and aims an arrow at him. Robin Hood proclaims his arrow always finds its target, and despite Rumplestiltskin's attempt to avoid it by teleporting away, the shaft eventually hits him square in the chest. Triumphantly, he prepares to leave the castle, but is stopped by an unharmed Rumplestiltskin. Imprisoned, Robin Hood endures torture for days on end. Rumplestiltskin's household servant, Belle feels sorry for the man, and out
of mercy, she sets him free. As Robin Hood escapes, he takes the wand with him.
Rumplestiltskin is furious Belle let him go, and forces her to come along as he tracks down the thief and kills him with his own bow and arrow. They reach a clearing in the woods guarded by the Sheriff of Nottingham. Rumplestiltskin shows the bow and arrow of the man who broke into his castle, which the Sheriff recognizes. However, the Sheriff will not give out information unless Rumplestiltskin allows him to spend a night with Belle. Instead, the Dark One decides it would be easier to get the man's whereabouts by ripping out the Sheriff's tongue. Finally, the Sheriff bitterly explains his hatred against the man, Robin Hood, and tells Rumplestiltskin where to find him.
Unaware he is being spied on by Rumplestiltskin and Belle, Robin Hood waits by a tree as a carriage, carrying a sickly Marian, approaches and stops on the side of the road. With the magic of the wand, Robin Hood heals her to full health. While the two are rejoicing in a lover's reunion, a stray arrow shot by Rumplestiltskin misses Robin Hood and hits the carriage, startling both of them, which hastens their getaway on horseback.
Sometime after, Marian gives birth to their son, Roland, but passes away under unknown circumstances, leaving Robin Hood to raise him alone.
