Spoilers & Speculations



Season Seven
 




Welcome to Storybrooke, a small town in Maine that you won’t find on any map. This town is full of magic, populated by fairytale characters once cursed by the Evil Queen Regina to live in our world—deprived of their memories and happy endings. Until Emma Swan came to town and changed everything. With the help of her son, Henry, Emma embraced her true identity as the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming—the Savior destined to break the Curse. But even after returning everyone’s memories, Emma’s mission was far from over. With the Curse broken, Mr. Gold (aka Rumplestiltskin) was free to bring magic to Storybrooke. And magic ALWAYS comes with a price…

After six seasons, the residents of the enchanted forest face their greatest challenge yet as The Evil Queen, Captain Hook and Rumplestiltskin join forces with a grown up Henry Mills and his daughter Lucy on an epic quest to once again bring hope to their world and ours. Along the way, new fairy tale characters and old search for true love, find adventure and once again take sides in the struggle of good against evil, as classic tales are once more twisted and reimagined.

“Once Upon a Time” stars Lana Parrilla as the Evil Queen/Regina, Colin O’Donoghue as Hook, Andrew J. West as Henry, Alison Fernandez as Lucy and Robert Carlyle as Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold.

If they really are using String Theory to tell this story this season, is there a version where Henry doesn't leave home or does so and doesn't get married? Did Lucy stumble upon the version where Henry actually never had a daughter? Hiw much of the audience is going to be completely confused all season?

I could see the audience tuning out because it is getting too confusing. Somehow though I don't think this eisode is talking about all the characters just Henry. Maybe this episode will explain how he aged so quickly and why none of our returning cast have aged. Maybe for them it's only been a couple of months but for Henry it's been 10 years.

That's not what the title of episode 3 implies. It's suggesting that there is a version of Hook, Gold and Regina who made different choices and somehow all ended up in a suburb of Seattle. This Hook can't miss Emma, because he never knew Emma. They aren't Au versions, they are the same characters with different choices. String Theory is science, but it meets its match in Once and its magic. Tiger Lilly used magic to send Lucy to her mother, but she threw her into the wrong String.

Yeah, I also don't think the storytelling is going to get that complex. The title is likely inspiration for how Henry came to be, it won't use the origins for it so literally, because it's hard for me to believe they will go out of their way to confuse the audience on different Henrys, different Reginas, Hooks, & Rumples etc. from multi verses. If they did, I would be surprised, let me just put it that way, because then it's technically not our s1-s6 characters anymore if they made different choices. Would they really get into explaining all these different choices made in SB to get the characters we have? I think newbies will just be new iterations. Otherwise that would make our originals alternates of some kind and they said no to that. Just my opinion, of course. We will have to wait & see. Might even apply to the new characters.

Thanks for the new thread.

That's too convoluted and very risky. Audiences could easily to tune out for it being too complicated.

They wouldn't necessarily be that different. Regina might have escaped the EF with Daniel and they might have adopted Henry. Cora could have still followed them and killed him. The only thing different is Snow isn't involved. Since we know she's not going to be an onscreen presence this season. Hook could still be connected to Henry through Baelfire. The same with Gold. It's a good as any way to explain where Emma, Snow, Charming and the others are. They are safely tucked away in another stream. It's just a theory.

The writers and show runners talk about taking toys down off the shelf and playing with them. They are the same toys, they are just playing with them differently. The Charming's and some of the others are just staying on the shelf this season.

You mean like different outcomes in the same timeline that could alter some things? It does have possibilities to change some things, some things I could even like better, but I just wonder with such a scenario would they have even bothered with JMo's return, likely showing her with our version of Hook if he won't be part of the s7 story moving forward? Couldn't they have just inferred CS are together when they revealed our characters coming to Henry are not exactly the same? Showing them wouldn't be necessary, right?

I know this is all just speculation at this point. I just think if they went this route, they would be disconnecting from s1-s6. A&E were the ones trying to assure fans they weren't doing that. But who knows. I won't completely discount the possibility because they have said one thing and done another in the past.

They have been talking about "disconnecting" from the previous seasons, starting back in January when Channing Dungey announced the season 7 would be a reboot. She was very clear that it would be something new and some characters and their stories would be done at the end of season 6. Since then they all have consistent with their messaging, especially at Comic-Con, that season 7 is not a continuation of the same stories. Adam and Eddy have talked about honoring the existing canon and not erasing it, however, does not preclude doing something new going forward. Now that Adam has released the 7-3 title, it seems pretty clear to me how they will explain the new state of affairs. The cryptic things people said at Comic-Con also make sense now.

I don't think they will actually show Hook, Regine and Rumple on various forked paths in the present, it will just serve as the explanation forhow the characters can be both happy in Storybrook and in Seattle at the same time.

I do understand that it is not a continuation of the same stories; it's a new chapter, like a new book in a book series, but A&E did say at SDCC that we would not be getting alternate versions of Regina|EQ, Hook, & Rumple. The only indication I was receiving from the cast interviews, and they admittedly have stated they don't know much themselves because they are only 2 scripts in, is they were talking about the new cursed identities in Seattle|HH, which will now create different versions of themselves. It has been described that our 3 characters come to help our Henry. What stake would alternate versions have in that if it's not their Henry? And if it is their Henry, what is the point of seeing our young Henry take off on the motorcycle in the sneak peek if it won't even be him later on? They already showed our Regina in that scene. I just see all this getting way too complex if they suddenly switch it up and say a couple episodes in 'oh, by the way, that is not the same Regina coming to help Henry' whom we saw in the first couple minutes of the premiere. She's back in SB. Or vice versa with Hook, Rumple etc.

I don't know if they are going to use string theory or not. I do find it interesting that the episode is named after a short story about string theory and the new idea was done while one of the lead actresses was being cast in a famous play about string theory. I don't think we can necessarily rule it out. Is it too complicated for audiences? Constellations success would prove that it's not. And while watching the same scene play over and over again with minor changes is not my cup of tea, it was well received and everyone seemed to understand that these characters are the same with minor differences in experience. So they would still be our Hook, Rumple and Regina even to the point of saying goodbye to Henry in the Pilot. The branching could take place later. There's not really an AU version until after the season 6 finale. They played around with it a little bit with Snow Falls and Snow Drifts. It was time travel but it also creted an AU under string theory. It's like multiple alternate timelines all coexisting and time isn't relevant. At least that's my non technical understanding

The writers went to see the play together. Maybe they were not just being suportive. Maybe it was a fieldtrip?
