I HATE PAN! Last season, it was a mother (Cora) who was the Big Bad. This season, it's a father. While I don't mind season-long arcs, that island was getting claustrophobic & monotonous. I'm glad they're all going back to Storybrooke because being in our world now means many more options for defeating Pan, among them a lot more angry mothers (who he seems to underestimate) and the tendency for little boys to want to grow up. Here's hoping we see that annoying little smirk wiped off his face very soon. Maybe he'll start to age before he can get back to Wonderland.
The actress who played Red now stars in NBC's DRACULA w/Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. So, we won't be seeing her unless her new series is cancelled, or the part is recast.
That has never been explained. I personally don't care if they ever address it because I don't want them to get too far afield of our core characters. If it relates to the history of the main conflict, then address it. If not, they should pass.
