Master storytellers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz ("Lost," "Tron: Legacy") invite everyone to Storybrooke, Maine, a small town that probably won't show up on one's GPS, but it's a place where magic is coming!

To ensure that no one in fairytale land – especially Snow White – had any more "happily ever afters," Evil Queen Regina cast a curse which trapped the fairytale characters, frozen in time, and brought them into our modern world. Although still alive, they had no knowledge of their former selves and were sleepwalking through life – ageless -- for 28 years, until a savior arrived in the form of Emma Swan. Unbeknownst to Emma, she was the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, who had whisked her out of fairytale land and into our world as an infant to save her from the curse. Abandoned as a baby, Emma's life was anything but magical; her last job was as a bail bondsperson, but she mostly drifted without much of a life plan. When her 10-year-old son, Henry -- whom she had given up for adoption years earlier -- appeared on her doorstep with a book of fairytales and a wild story about how Emma was the progeny of fairytale characters trapped in a town called Storybrooke, she thought he was crazy. But curiosity got the better of her, and when she brought Henry back to the town – where Regina, ever the control freak, had made herself mayor and was also Henry's adoptive mother -- Emma soon discovered that Storybrooke was more than it seemed. Over time she came to believe the stories were true, began to see cracks in the curse, and was finally able to break it.

Reality and myth were merged as the fairytale characters began awakening, once the curse was lifted, and remembered who they were. But to their dismay they were not transported back to fairytale land. And to make matters worse, Rumplestiltskin – aka Mr. Gold – in an effort to gain the upper hand in his power struggle with Regina, introduced magic into the town. In fairytales magic has its place, but in our world it can have unfathomable consequences. Now the fairytale characters must contend with magic in their quest to find a way home, as new fairytale characters are revealed, old acquaintances are revisited, and some we had come to believe could be trusted will turn against their own kind.

Magazines and Press

  • We will find out about the book and who wrote it.
  • There are “major plans” for Cora this season (possible 3-episode arc)
  • We'll learn Charming's real name.
  • Question: I have a burning Once Upon a Time question — was the outside world affected when the curse was broken? —Jen
    Ausiello: That’s what EP Adam Horowitz referred to as “an excellent question” when it was lobbed to him at Comic-Con over the weekend.
    “I think the best way to answer that,” he responded, “is to say that that will be explicated rather quickly.” Explicate: To analyze and develop (an idea or principle) in detail. (Source)
  • Question: Any scoop on August from Once Upon a Time? Please don’t say they’re not bringing him back. —Rae
    Ausiello: “We are definitely going to tell what happened to Pinocchio,” EP Edward Kitsis assured us at Con. “The last we saw, he was wood.”
    Added Horowitz: “We gotta figure out what happened to him. We started the story and we intend to finish it.” (source)
  • Alexa: What's next for Snow and Charming on OUAT?! Please tell me they won't be getting new love interests!
    Relax! It seems like the show's creators are more interested in exploring the relationship between the couple and their daughter than any prospective love interests. "There's a lot of challenges, in terms of this new relationship with their daughter. Rather than focusing on last season, where it was they didn't know who each other were and whether they'll get together and will we overcome the Kathryn of it all, this year it's a whole different set of challenges that this new familial relationship presents," Adam Horowitz explains. (Source)
  • Once Upon a Time | You may think that once he drops anchor in Storybrooke, Hook might not have any friends in town. But think again. Remember, the henchman Belle’s florist father hired was no less than Smee (played by Eureka‘s Christopher Gauthier), who is due to return after the holiday hiatus. “Smee will definitely play a part in Hook’s plans,” Colin O’Donoghue assured me. Speaking of the sidekick’s previous target, could Belle land in Hook’s hooks, as a way of getting back at his mortal foe Rumplestiltskin? “Belle is such a huge part of Rumple’s life…,” O’Donoghue agreed. “She might figure into the equation.” (Source)
  • Loved the Once Upon a Time midseason finale. What's coming up when the show returns? — Joan
    NATALIE: The Charming family has been reunited, but look for more bad news on the horizon. When we asked Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Morrison about the joyous reunion, they both offered up ominous answers that may or may not have to do with the arrival of Hook and Cora. "It's, of course, short-lived because yet another obstacle is going to be thrust between all of these characters," Goodwin says, with Morrison adding, "New terrible things need to happen for us to work out." Any guesses as to what's in store for the Storybrooke gang?
  • Question: Is the Mulan/Aurora arc over on Once Upon a Time? Are they done for the season/forever? –Mary
    Ausiello: Mitovich — who just spent a long weekend in Vancouver, where Once shoots — hears that one of the princesses will be seen soon after the show returns from its holiday break (on Jan. 6). (Source)
  • @AdamHorowitzLA Yes, Prince Philip as brilliantly portrayed by @Ju1ianMorris will return... And soonish. #OnceUponATime #holidayspoilers
  • Adam Horowitz ‏@AdamHorowitzLA Charming's real name coming up soonish. #OnceUponATime #holidayspoilers
  • COMING UP NEXT | "No one's going to be happy" about the arrival of the pirate brig's passengers, says Jennifer Morrison. "It's too much of a threat to everything that we care about." Speaking in character, she adds, "I don’t really know that much about all these people from this other land, but I do know that those two are dangerous, so I'm certainly not going to want them anywhere near my kid." Also, as revealed in recent weeks: Mulan, Prince Phillip and Smee will each make encores; viewers will meet Dr. Frankenstein's father and brother (played by Gregory Itzin and Chad Collins); Emma's baby daddy Neal Cassidy will be seen again; and Ethan Embry (Can't Hardly Wait) and Sonequa Martin-Green (The Walking Dead) will surface in secret roles. (Source)
  • Will anything surprise us about the upcoming episodes of Once Upon a Time? — Megan
    NATALIE: We know that the flashbacks lead to Regina enacting the curse, but coming trips to the past may surprise you. "We're going to show you some things in our world that you didn't even think were an option," executive producer Edward Kitsis says. Will we see flashbacks to other lands — say, Oz? Kitsis remains coy. "[They'll] center on our characters, but in surprising ways." (Source)

I tried to follow the link on the last thread to the sneak peaks, but they weren't there. Anyone know where to find them?


On questions about Belle being a warrior -

It says she and Mulan will be looking for a yao guai, some kind of demon. I think a dress would be bad for that.

Also, worries about that (especially since it looks like Belle gets locked up at the end of this episode) -

What if Mulan neglected to tell Belle the yao guai us Rumplestiltskin?

Or maybe the yao guai is Belle, since some people may see her as a demon after being with Rumple?

Which would make Mulan a bad guy or (at least) a good guy who's been thoroughly conned by the bad guys.

Robert Carlyle talks about Rumpelstiltskin:

For the Once Upon a Time Fan’s what’s in store for Rumpelstiltskin’s future?

RC: I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you, and that’s not good.

What if I spun you some gold?

RC: Absolutely, if you want to make a deal with Rumpelstiltskin. That’s a dangerous thing to do . As far as the show, the characters will continue to hopefully enthrall people. Certainly, just as this point, we’re doing episode 12 or 14 and that’s when things really, really begin to gather up pace now. I read the last script yesterday, and I couldn’t stop making noises. I was gasping, embarrassing myself, but I was literally “Ah, oh my god…no!” Things like that. It was really, really surprising me, and I mean it, so if it did that to me it’s going to do that to the audience, that’s for sure

Oh, dear.

Gold's scene with Belle -

OK, dramatically, his explanation has to be rushed. That just isn't a moment where you stop the rush towards action by bogging it down with complex explanations that detract from the emotional drive of the scene.

That aside, man, that was not the way to go.

And I have been thinking of every scenario I can for someone (maybe Pongo) to jump up at the funeral and say, "He's not dead, you idiots!"

Oh, and another thing: Couldn't they have shot the funeral from a different angle, so we had more of a sense of a crowd and not a sense of who was and wasn't there - like, oh, I don't know, AUGUST?

Honestly, I don't care whether he's animal or vegetable (or even mineral), he skipped Jiminy's funeral? Boy, what is WRONG with you?

Yeah, I know, they just couldn't get the actor and all that. That's why I wish they'd shot it differently so I'm not asking where Mr. MIA was.

But, my irrational anger issues aside, thanks for the link.

It's interesting that Robert says he was so shocked by the last script. Might that be episode 2.16? The one that Rose McGowan is guest starring in as young Cora/the miller's daughter and where we will see the original Rumpelstiltskin story. I'm guessing that episode is going to be chock full of revelations.
