Don't mess with mermaids!

We don't care if you're the most evil queen in all the land, or the hottest pirate to ever rock our boat, if there's one thing that Once Upon a Time has taught us, it's don't pick a fight with anyone with fins—no matter how gorgeous they may be.

Everyone's favorite little mermaid, JoAnna Garcia Swisher, is swimming back to our enchanted drama for this Sunday's episode, "The Jolly Roger," and trust us, her post-curse debut will certainly make a splash in Storybrooke.

To help whet your appetite for Ariel's return, we've traded in our best collection of dinglehoppers and thingamabobs to bring you an exclusive sneak peek of the ravishing redhead in action! Better watch out, Hook, (Colin O'Donoghue) this is one maiden who is immune to your guyliner charms.

Do yourselves a favor and click on the video above for your first look at Captain Hook's confrontation with Ariel from the lost year in the Enchanted Forest. Hell hath no fury like a princess who lost her prince!

We don't want to give everything away, but here's what you can expect from the magical homecoming:

In Fairy Tale Land during the past year, an angry Ariel confronts Hook over her missing Prince Eric, who she assumes was kidnapped and possibly killed by the swarthy pirate. But when Hook confesses that the Jolly Roger has been stolen and Eric is most likely the thief's prisoner, Ariel unknowingly provides him with a clue as to who the culprit is, and Hook (along with his fishy friend!) goes off in search of his ship.

Translation: Best. Episode. Ever!

Once Upon a Time airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
