Absolutely huge SPOILERS for the second half of Once Upon a Time Season 3 ahead. If you don't want to know STOP READING NOW!
OK. You've been warned.
In an interview with TV Line, Once Upon a Time creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis leaked the news that a major character, "dies for real" toward the end of th spring.
No flashbacks, no reprieves. The actor will definitely leave the show.
All but one regular cast member is at risk. Robert Carlyle (Rumplestiltskin) is apparently safe... but is that because he's already sacrificed his life to save his family from Peter Pan.
So many possibilities and none of them are making us happy. Let's take a look at who we might have to say goodbye to by the end of Once Upon a Time season 3.
1. Once Without Emma?!?
She's the character who started our story. Could Once Upon a Time survive without Ms. Swan? It would certainly send Henry, Snow, Charming, Neal, and Hook all into a grief stricken tailspin.
2. No More Snow White?
It would certainly change everything for Emma and Charming but could they survive without their pillar of hope and strength?
3. A Future for Hook?
This would be a real shame given the Captain Swan chemistry that's been brewing but Hook really doesn't have another connection to the core story. Could season 3 be the end of our favorite pirate?
4. Could This Be the End for Neal?
We couldn't wait to see Neal make it to Storybrooke but the chemistry between he and Emma has been lukewarm at best. Could he be destined to get ripped away from Henry once again?
5. A Life Without Charming
Things got a little dull for Charming during the first half of the season. Could this be the member of Emma's family who's still in danger? Unfortunately, he's high on our list of possibilities.
6. Will Belle Survive?
She's barely been on the screen this season and if Rumplestiltskin is truly dead, then there isn't much hope for Belle.
7. Would They Kill Off Henry?
Could Henry find himself back on death's doorstep? Only if they want to see both Emma and Regina take a very dark turn.
If you had to choose one character to kill off this season, which would it be?
