We know quite a few of you tune in for the premiere of Once Upon A Time on ABC last night and it sounds like a lot of you are eager to see what is coming up as many of the show's mysteries are waiting to be figured out.
While we still have no idea who Sheriff Graham, played by the delicious Jamie Dornan, is supposed to be from the "fairytale" world or if anyone, including the Evil Queen, is aware of their former life, we do have some fantastic SPOILERS to share about where the season is going and how it will play out.
Again we say, SPOILERS AHEAD!
First of all, it should be noted that as of right now, the cast is working on Episode 10 and as of Episode 10, the scripts are following the same fashion. As producer Steve Pearlman puts it, viewers will travel to Fairy Tale World "typically … in the first act," sometimes for a "small chunk," sometimes longer. But this idea of dual reality will continue to be the norm for the show going forward, so if you found LOST annoying, we'd steer clear of this show.
As for the characters, expect some major backstory to be delved into in episodes 2 and 3 for the Evil Queen, Snow White and Charming. Ginnifer Goodwin confesses that episode three, which reveals Snow's backstory, is her "favorite episode thus far," and added she walked away from shooting with an "actual, physical scar from it.” We told ya - BADASS! As for the Prince, who currently finds himself in a coma in the "real world," his portrayer, Josh Dallas, teases John-Doe won't stay that way for long. He says:
“No one’s come to claim him, [but] maybe when he wakes up, someone comes and claims him. Maybe it’s true. Maybe it’s not true."
So cryptic! LOL!
Now, for those of you who are wondering who else will be popping up along the way, Steve the Producer insists there is much more to the story than just the trio from Snow White. Many other fairytale characters are coming into play - and they are coming soon! He teases:
“We’re really trying to go to a lot of different places and tie the stories back to our main characters. If you look at the pilot, it suggests the story is about Snow and Charming and their life and Emma’s life on the Storybrook side, and we’re absolutely following and tracking those stories throughout the series. But I think [we wanted] to be able to branch out. Cinderella and Hansel and Gretel are among the characters viewers will be seeing in the first batch of episodes. We didn’t want to fall into the trap of some shows that have gone before us, that shall remain nameless — [coughs] FlashForward. They were so heavily into mythology that you can’t get out of it."
In case you missed the premiere last night, we have the first nine minutes for you (above) to give you a taste of what you missed. Believe us, you will sooooo want to get into this show. We're thinking this is going to be the one to watch on Sundays! (You know, after the Walking Dead is, well, dead for the season!)
