Once Upon a Time Season 3: Major Death Ahead!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

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

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.

If you had to choose one character to kill off this season, which would it be?

My money is on Henry. It would create the best storytelling for the characters since he is so emotionally connected to all of the main characters. Plus it is because of Henry that Emma believed in magic and trusted her powers it soil be interesting to see how both Regina and herself would react.

Rumple will be back. To kill him off permanently would be rather dumb. And I can't see them killing off Regina now that she might have a chance at true love with Robin. My money is on Neal going bye bye. Oh and true love's kiss didn't work on Emma bc of her lost memories. Same reason Rumple kissing Belle when her memories were lost didnt work

Neal! Give him a heroic death.
I like Hook and I'm for Captain Swan. Hook is back and has found Emma. Now it's going to be a challenge to get Emma back to the Enchanted Forest. Regina too could be gone gone gone...I hope not though I like her and I want her to find Robin Hood! I like that spin. Heck it could be Granny? What ever happened to Red? OH! I hope it's not Jiminy Cricket!

It will be either Neal or most likely Hook. Every other character is major in the over all world politics.

After thinking about this a while, I wonder ... didn't they tease a major death months ago? And then it turned out to be the Blue Fairy? (No offense, but to me she was never even close to a 'major character'!) I'm just curious if we might get crazy over nothing again ;-)

Please just kill Neal and get it over with...no one likes him

That's not true. I like him.

Kill Snow. Kill Henry. Hell kill Emma. But touch Hook and I will riot. Plus he makes no sense since he just moved his whole family from Ireland to the states so he can be closer to his family and the set. Makes no sense to kill him now. Plus he's the Daryl of the show

I totally agree with you! I will riot with you. He is the reason I am addicted to the show.

Actually no. Hook is not everyone's reason for watching OUAT.

Ah, but like it or not, he IS a big reason why some people do watch the show and he IS very popular. Personally, I watch the show for the storyline and I like all the character's for different reasons. I'll be sad to see any of the above mentioned people get killed off but I guess either an actor isn't completely happy and wants to go or they're doing it for the shock value. That said, maybe it could be Ginnifer Goodwin as she's having a baby and maybe she'd like some time at home with him/her when he/she finally arrives.

I highly doubt they'll kill off Emma. She's the main character! (Based on the dvd covers and the fact that she's the savior) And even if you disagree with both my points, her death makes no sense. She is the bridge between the two worlds.

ok so some people are missing the facts. Gold is DEAD thats why he is safe. he stabed himself and peter pan with his dagger. regina is probly the one that will go cause i believe that her doing what she did at the end of the last epis. killed her. thats why she was freaking out. well that and she was losing henry. Since this show loves flashbacks i think it will back log in the first few epis. what went on after they all got back.

Gold is the most popular character on the show, he's about as dead as Kenny from South Park or Brian from family guy. They'll find a way to bring him back, without a doubt. They'd be stupid not to bring him back.

No he is not the most popular. We all have our favorites.

If Gold is really dead, that's it for me. He's the most interesting character on the show.

Prince Charming

David: Why do women keep their shoe boxes?
Mary Margaret: Because after true love there is no more powerful magic than footwear. It has to be protected.
