Once Upon a Time Spoilers: Going Dark, Finding Neverland, Changing the Game

at . Comments

Once Upon a Time is sorry to confirm the news, but even true hearts can lose. That much was tragically proven on this week's "The Queen is Dead."

And with Mary Margaret witnessing the death of a beloved acquaintance, what will this mean for the character going forward? Ginnifer Goodwin gave fans a preview during the show's PaleyFest panel yesterday afternoon in Los Angeles.

“What she is going through is going to shake her self-identity, her self-definition,” said the actress. “If she’s not the Snow White she can read about it in story books, then she doesn’t know who she is. That opens a lot up for her. She can get in touch with a more evolved way of protecting herself and her family."

And that certainly looks like what we'll be seeing on next Sunday's "The Miller's Daughter."

Along with this new, scary side of Mary Margaret, here is an idea of what fans can expect to close out Once Upon a Time Season 2, courtesy of this revealing cast Q&A:

A Trip to Neverland? The concluding pair of episodes will be titled "Second Star to the Right" and "Straight on Till Morning." Yes, these are the directions to Neverland.

With Bae on his way to Storybrooke, Robery Carlyle teased "a game-changer [in Episode 22] that really happens in terms of the relationship with [Gold's] son."

Fairy Tale World, 2.0? "As much as David likes electricity, he misses his sword, his horse and his castle," producer Edward Kitsis said of a possible fairy tale land return. "He wants to kill some ogres and wants to rebuild his land. That is something a lot of people will get on board for, but we'll see what happens."

Hook will be away for awhile and then "out for himself" when he comes back, according to Kitsis.

She tried going good for awhile, but "Regina as the Evil Queen is going to make a comeback in a different way," said Lana Parrilla. "And it's going to be exciting to see."

We will flashback on the episode "Welcome to Storybrooke," heading to 1983 and the week when the curse was first enacted. This installment will mark the returns of Sheriff Graham (Jamie Dornan) and Billy the Mechanic (Jarod Joseph).

Talk of a spinoff was very premature. Sebastian Stan will return at some point and continue to portray Jefferson.

Here's the way I see everything playing out... As we suspect, Cora is going to try to kill Gold to get his power. Snow is VERY upset that Cora killed her mother and is ready to do ANYTHING to prevent her from winning. Therefore, when Cora does kill Gold (which I think she does), Snow finally uses the candle (which we saw given to her to save her mother last week) to kill Cora and bring Gold back. So following the transfer of power here...Cora gets power from Gold, but in killing Cora, Snow receives the power. Not sure if it will go down this way, but it certainly would be an interesting twist!

f she has magic healing powers they will most likely only work with the ones she loves.

And according to spoilers, the next episode pretty much begins with her proclaiming that Gold is her family and she would never ever let him die.

Correct me if I'm wrong but as far as I know Snow daggering Rumple would mean that Rumple dies. Sorry but there's no way the creators are going to let Rumple die. H

Not if:
A) Emma heals him (hence why showrunners talked about the whole thing of emotions being behind "true magic" of Emma)
B) Snow uses the candle to trade save Rumple and kill Cora then.

Correct me if I'm wrong but as far as I know Snow daggering Rumple would mean that Rumple dies. Sorry but there's no way the creators are going to let Rumple die. He's so essential to the storyline, as is Robert Carlyle to the cast. We don't know what sort of magic Emma has yet, and what its limits are, so that might even be an option but since she certainly doesn't love Rumplestiltskin nor even likes him that much (especially if he's continuing to be rude to Henry) I don't see it happening. If she has magic healing powers they will most likely only work with the ones she loves. She can't just go about healing everyone. Poor Dr Whale would be put out of a job. @San
They did say there would be no recasting of Jefferson, however they also said he will not be returning in the foreseeable future.

I have a feeling that Snow is becoming the Dark One !

My thoughts exactly! Either
A) Cora kills Rumple and becomes Dark One. Then Snow uses the candle to kill cora and revive rumple. Singe Snow killed the current Dark One, she becomes the dark one.
B) Snow literally stabs Rumple with the dagger, to prevent Cora from getting his power. Rumple latter is healed by Emma, through the whole love-magic thing.


I think the game changer will be that Neal find out that Rumple killed his mother. I am interested in Snow going to the dark side. But the episode I am most interested in is the flashback episode.

I have a feeling that Snow is becoming the Dark One !
She kills Rumple so she becomes the most powerful of all! Rumple will probably be healed by Emma so he can stay on the show!


Hook on his own? Game-changer for Rumple and Bae? Return of Jefferson? And I read somewhere that Belle might get her memories back? Sounds damn great to me :-)


Alright for Bae and Rumple!!Love him and emma and cant wait to see how him and rumple reunite as father and son.


YAY for Sebastian Stan. You already took away Sheriff Graham, leave the other hotties on the show!

Once Upon a Time Quotes

True love isn't easy but it must be fought for because once you find it, it can never be replaced.

Prince Charming

Be careful. Love is a weapon, Deary. The most dangerous weapon of all which means the pain you should worry about isn't the kind inflicted by a broken sword but the kind that comes from a broken heart.
