Ok let me just say that season two of once a upon a time will be a good season. In the beginnng there was a new york kind of guy and we were wondering like what is his role in storybrooke? here is some info from wetpaint to help us out: Baelfire: He could be Rumplestiltskin‘s (Robert Carlyle) son, Baelfire. After all, Bae was sent to a “world without magic” — presumably our world. It’s not unreasonable that he may have learned about the curse somehow, and perhaps has been keeping track of the goings on in Storybrooke.
Peter Pan: We know that Captain Hook will play a notable part this season, which leads plenty of fans wonder whether we’ll see Peter Pan, too. This mystery man could be Peter. Maybe he got stuck in our world — perhaps as a side effect of the curse. We assume that Neverland is a different world than Fairytale Land, but maybe Peter was in our world when the curse hit (after all, in Peter Pan he can fly to our world), and as a side effect the curse prevented him from getting back.
The writer of Henry’s book: We still don’t actually know for sure who wrote the Once Upon a Time book that prompted Henry (Jared Gilmore) to find Emma in the first place. We know the origin of the book will be explored this season. Perhaps this character is involved.
Henry’s dad: Assuming Henry mysterious father is independent of one of the people we’ve already mentioned, maybe that’s who this is. After all, we would be far from surprised if it turns out he knows way more about Storybrooke than Emma (Jennifer Morrison) thinks.
So to me I think he is baelfire because that was and still is a mystery from season one: What happened to Rumplestiltskin‘s son? while peter pan, the writer of henry’s book and henry’s dad are for season 2. I think they are going to answer a question from season one before digging into season two.
Also we find out that Mr. Gold/Rumplestilskin double-crossed Emma, took the potion from Emma and more. We also find out that Mr. Gold/Rumplestilskin did bring magic to storybooke for a reason but is not telling, but to me I think it will be told as the season goes on. Mr. Gold releases ” THE SOULSUCKER” the main purpose of the soulsucker to suck souls and won’t stop until he does the job, in this case it it Regina AKA THE EVIL QUEEN.
Regina says ” there is nothing to go back to” referring to fairytail land but there is check this out: There are survivors in Fairytale Land. We think that this is what Parrilla refers to when she says that a new realm will be introduced. While we once believed that Fairytale Land was no more after the Evil Queen’s curse, that isn’t exactly true. The first survivors we’ll meet are Disney princesses, Mulan (Jamie Chung) and Aurora AKA Sleeping Beauty (Sarah Bolger), and a dashing new prince played by Pretty Little Liars actor Julian Morris. So just to let you know this will be exploried a lot during season two.
So now the soulsucker starts to suck Regina but snow white fends it off with a lighter. And then they try again at city hall the charmings try: snow white, prince charming and emma swan.
Battle in the jail as David uses a lit broom to ward off the wraith.
The hat spins and opens a portal. The wraith falls into it and nooo! So does Emma!
Snow jumps in after her, and David tries to follow, but finds himself on the floor.
David and Regina have some words. She pushes him into the wall and the wallpaper tries to choke him. She’s about to kill him when Henry runs in. He says he won’t see her until she gets Emma and Mary Margaret back.
Mulan explains to Beauty about the curse, how they were frozen. The land has fearsome creatures in it, she says. In a “Planet of the Apes”-like ending, Mulan shows Beauty the fearsome creatures: Emma and Snow. “That’s what brought the wraith here,” she says. So Emma and Snow are in fairytale land. So I can’t wait until next sunday. If you missed the premiere you can see it on http://beta.abc.go.com/shows/once-upon-a-time the next day.
Know what you do and do what you know.
PS: Some info just for you guys:
After watching the Season 2 premiere of “Once Upon A Time” (Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC), HuffPost TV had the pleasure of talking with the show’s creators, Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis.
They discussed some of the events of the premiere and touched on what’s to come this season in our wide-ranging Q&A, which has been edited, condensed and presented below. Read on for some hints on what you can expect from Emma and Snow’s relationship, how we’ll meet Henry’s father, August’s return and what will happen to Regina in upcoming episodes. Spoilers for the Season 2 premiere ahead.
On how Emma and Snow’s relationship will evolve from here:
Kitsis: Well, I think the interesting thing for us on that is that all last season, Emma didn’t believe that [Mary Margaret] was her mom. She was kind of like the big sister, giving her dating advice and things you would never do with your mom. Now they’re in a strange land where Mary Margaret remembers she was Snow White. Snow White doesn’t need a big sister, and Snow White has more information about that land than Emma. So I think it’ll be interesting as they feel out their mother/daughter/big sister/friend/best friend relationship. And I think that what’s also interesting is that it’s one thing to believe [that magic is real and Snow is her mom] and it’s another thing to see it. Now Emma’s actually in the land where Henry kept telling her she was really from. And so I think there’s a real mix of emotions. And we’re excited also that you’re going to get a bit of Emma before she had Henry. [The flashback to Emma’s past] will be Episode 6 … In that episode you’ll meet Henry’s father.
On Charming’s story while Snow and Emma are trapped:
Kitsis: He’s Dustin Hoffman in “Kramer vs. Kramer,” except instead of his wife leaving him, she fell through a magical hat into another world. [Laughs.] What’s so interesting for David is he now has a wife to find, a daughter to find, a town to run, and a grandson to take care of, even though he was a parent for 28 minutes. And so there’s a lot to unwind in the town. There’s lots of questions I’m sure people have, like, “Can they leave, and what the hell was that smoke, and what the hell’s going to happen?” He’s going to have to sort through that all and bring his wife back. Luckily for him, Snow and Emma are not damsels in distress, so I have a feeling they’ll be able to find their own way back.
Horowitz: We call them “damsels with daggers.”
On writing strong female characters:
Kitsis: For us, that was the kind of show we wanted to do, because we weren’t interested in weakness with women, because that’s not real. And what’s real is a Snow White that wields a sword, and that can steal, and torture a knight with a pickaxe.
Horowitz: Exactly. From day one of writing the pilot, I remember writing the first sequence. We sat there and we said, “When that queen comes in, who’s going to pull the sword?” “It has to be Snow.” And that kind of started it.
On Regina’s journey this season:
Horowitz: She’s got a dilemma.
Kitsis: Well, for us, what was interesting about writing the finale was, she had a choice. We have seen an entire season of her making the wrong choices. This one is, you can save Henry or you could save your curse, but you can’t have both. And she chose her son, so it makes you wonder if that void in her heart has been filled. And I think in the premiere, one of our favorite moments is Regina finding out that the only reason Emma and Snow are helping her is because Henry asked.
Horowitz: That’s the thing; she can be evil and she can do terrible, terrible things. But if we understand why, and there’s a humanity at the core of that, that’s what allows you to watch it. It allows us to write it. You still want her to be a villain. You still want her to be an antagonist. But she’s got extremely good arguments for everything. She raised that kid for 10 years before this woman came. But she has to balance the fact that she tried to be a mom with the fact that she does horrible things like curse millions of people.
Kitsis: And yes, she took her son to a psychiatrist who turned out to be a cricket because her son had delusions that these books were real, only to find out they were actually true. So there’s some damage control to be done with her [and Henry].
On Rumple and Belle:
Kitsis: The thing that’s great about Belle is, she can see the beauty beneath the skin, and Rumple clearly has a plan. I don’t think in that plan, as meticulous as he is, he ever accounted for her being alive. So again, there’s a man who’s often faced choices between love and power …
Horowitz: That’s the thing; it’s about having these choices, having these crossroads, and creating these dilemmas where, as a writer and an audience member, you can look and say, “I’d want to go left, too. I know I should go this way.” But the deck is stacked so that you get why they make the choice, even if it’s wrong.
On August’s return:
Horowitz: You will see him.
Kitsis: Yeah. We can’t tell you how, or why, or where, or when, but we can tell you that Eion Bailey will be back this season.
Horowitz: Yeah, we’re very excited to have him returning and to further that character’s story.
On bringing back The Huntsman (Jamie Dornan) at some point — and whether they regret killing him:
Kitsis: Well, we designed that character to die, but knowing Jamie and how much we love him, of course it tortures us.
Horowitz: We love Jamie so much.
Kitsis: We’d love to get him back again this year. He just did a movie, so he’s busy.
Horowitz:He’s part of the DNA of the show, and because of that he’s always a part of it. Any time we can find the way to bring him in, we would be happy to do it.
Kitsis: Yeah, in the finale that was sort of our fave — we designed that entire thing just to give him that entrance where he pulls the mask up. His handsomeness will stun you.
On Captain Hook’s (Colin O’Donoghue) introduction:
Horowitz: All we can reveal is that he will tie in rather quickly, in this first batch of episodes …
Kitsis: He has interesting relationships with a few of our characters …
On bringing in other iconic characters — such as Ariel — who were rumored early on, but aren’t in the first batch of episodes:
Kitsis: There’s a lot of characters and people that we have ideas for, it’s just a matter of when we get to them. We’re going to meet Lancelot, Hook.
Horowitz: The Giant [from “Jack and the Beanstalk”]
Kitsis: We have a lot of toys, right? So we’re going to deal with them.
Horowitz: We have ideas for a lot of characters like Ariel, for example. Right now, these are the ones we’re playing with, but we’d love to have the opportunity to do a lot.
On whether Mulan, Phillip and Aurora can technically be classified as a love triangle:
Kitsis: Well, what I think is interesting about that love triangle is that it started with her, Mulan, helping her friend go wake up his true love. So in a way, the triangle is done, in the sense that she’s already said, “You need to go do that.” So what happens from here on out, and whether or not he’s dead … I mean, all I saw was his soul being sucked out …
On whether there will be one major villain in Season 2, or a number of antagonists:
Kitsis: I don’t know … I know that Barbara Hershey will be back [as Regina’s mother]. I know that Captain Hook, if I remember from “Peter Pan,” wasn’t the nicest of guys.
Horowitz: He’s got a hook on his hand!
Kitsis: I think he is misunderstood. He has a complicated backstory.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: First, talk about the decision to end the first season with something people thought would end the series — breaking the curse.
ADAM HOROWITZ: We never thought of this show as the “breaking the curse” show. There were places we wanted to go beyond that. We knew people would think that [storyline] is something that’s going to drag on for years.
But you couldn’t tell viewers it was going to get broken or else it would have spoiled the finale.
EDWARD KITSIS: Breaking the curse at the end of season 1 was always the goal because it felt like it would enable us to dig deeper in season 2 about who these people are.
HOROWITZ: There were two big things in season 1 for us: Breaking the curse and Emma believing — which was the other thing I could sense the audience was going to get impatient about.
KITSIS: And her [revelation] had to come from Henry. He had to make her believe. It couldn’t just be, ‘Oh my God, Ruby, you’re right!’
HOROWITZ: There’s so much we feel like we can do with these characters now that the curse is broken, now that they know who they are. Whereas season 1, to us, it felt like it built to get us to this place.
With the curse broken, are they still trapped in Storybrooke?
HOROWITZ: That’s an excellent question. Whether they can come and go and what leaving means is something that we’re addressing pretty much out of the gate.
KITSIS: Since “Magic Is Coming,” there will be a whole different vibe to Storybrooke this year.
Now that magic has been released, is magic just in Storybrooke, or is it in, say, Portland?
KITSIS: I’ve seen a lot of people in Portland who believe magic is already there, they don’t need us to bring it. What happens when you introduce something new to a new place is exactly what the first couple of episodes will deal with.
HOROWITZ: The way magic works in our world, the rules with which it’s operating, and the way it affects our characters is different than in fairy-tale land.
A couple of actors on the Once Upon set said that this year seems “bigger.” Obviously certain costs go up each year, but were you also given more money to put on the screen?
HOROWITZ: The ambition of this season is larger than season 1. We have been allowed to do more at the start of the [season]. Without addressing the budget, everybody at the studio is on board with this as a big-canvas show… A lot of it actually is the learning-curve aspect of season 1, where we figured out what we can do and how to do it well. We learned how to maximize our bang for our buck. The biggest key is time. If we can figure out our stories far enough in advance, the more time our effects team and department heads will have.
KITSIS: And [visual effects] technology continues to improve, which helps us … Every week we try to paint ourselves into a corner and have a potential shark-jumping moment and move past it. We’re always trying to make the show something new and something fun without changing the dynamic. There’s also certain ideas that we don’t chase down like we did last year — we know that’s not what our show is now, so let’s stay on this track.
Another thing the actors said is they felt this season is more “grounded.” Obviously you’re not putting Prince Charming’s head on a spike, but is that accurate?
HOROWITZ: I think part of what they’re reacting to is we come in this year into a very tense situation and by end of the premiere it’s even more intense. We didn’t have to set up the characters and situation. So this season we could dive right into the reality of what’s happening. The emotional intensity is ratcheted up.
So now there’s three characters that most of the actors will play in season 2. There’s their current new post-curse Storybrooke selves and, in flashbacks, their pre-curse fairy-tale land selves and their cursed Storybrooke selves.
KITSIS: Yes. We’ve made nothing easy.
HOROWITZ: But hopefully cool.
Does that complexity concern you?
KITSIS: Although the show is getting more complex, the story is told through the character prism and is not about you having to remember a lot of exposition. So they get to see Rumpelstiltskin before he was the Dark One, when he was a coward. So when you see him being frightened you understand it. It’s not like he went underground where he was handed a manila envelope and we don’t tell you what’s in the envelope [for several episodes/seasons].
HOROWITZ: We made a conscious decision in season 1 to lay it all there. So we’re not in a confusing haze of trying to figure out a world.
What’s been the biggest challenge of season 2?
HOROWITZ: Honestly, the same as season 1: What’s the next story we’re dying to tell and dying to kill ourselves to tell it on our schedule and with our constraints? What’s the episode that will make everybody in the writer’s room have writer’s envy and will want to write that episode because it’s going to be the coolest one we’ve ever done?
Here’s what I find interesting about the characters you’re adding this season. Mulan is a Chinese historical figure. Captain Hook is an early 20th century literary creation and Lancelot is a fifth-century possible historical figure. Those aren’t fairy-tale characters.
KITSIS: Go back and look at the pilot when you see Henry’s book and the book flips [through the pages of illustrations from different stories]. Also the episode with the Mad Hatter when you see all the doors [to other worlds]. If you Tivo-pause those doors there are some that look different than what you might think.
HOROWITZ: Fairy tales are ground zero. They’re the first stories we hear … Will Chewbacca show up in Storybrooke? Probably not, because that’s a Lucasfilm property.
KITSIS: But he’s welcome to!
You play a lot with Disney characters. What’s something you’re not allowed to do?
KITSIS: Cinderella is not going to be doing an 8-ball in a Boogie Nights scene.
But you wouldn’t write that anyway.
HOROWITZ: You get the sense of where the line is and you try to push as far over that as you can without going too far. We want to do cool dark stories, but we don’t want to sully the characters. We had Snow “under a curse” and not behaving as herself, capture and torture a guard with an axe and threaten him. It was very real to what our Snow was doing at the time, but it’s not something traditionally Disney would want to do with that character.
KITSIS: That was our Quentin Tarantino moment.
HOROWITZ: And we had things like the Red Riding Hood episode where she kills her boyfriend and eats him. We’re getting families to watch this, but we were able to get the dark things we wanted to do.
KITSIS: For us it’s about character. Everybody has darkness in them.
