The buck stops here -- at least as far as going beyond a divorce is concerned.

Throughout Once Upon A Time's thrilling sophomore season, the magic came, bewitched, and left us burning with OH so many questions…
Questions that will hopefully be answered in the upcoming final episodes!
But before the inevitably drama-stuffed finale premieres, show creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz sat down and discussed what MIGHT come to pass, providing tasty teasers that (slightly) satisfy our HUNGRY minds!
NOM NOM NOM!
What fans can look forward to in the final two episodes:
Eddy: Well, I think the fans can look forward to kind of the culmination of everything we set up this year. Who are Greg and Tamara, who do they work for, do they work for anyone, what’s their agenda?
Adam: What’s really behind everything they’re doing, and how is that going to impact on every single one of our characters? I think we’re bringing all those things to a head in a way we find exciting, and we think hopefully will be really surprising to the audience as well.
Eddy: We are going to dive more into how Lacy affects Rumpelstiltskin, or Mr. Gold, and how that affects his relationship with his son.
On the title of the last two episodes "Second Star to the Right" and "And Straight On ‘Til Morning"
Adam: (grinning) Just randomly titled. No significance to those titles at all.
Eddy: We are going to be finding out a bit about Baelfire, and Captain Hook. There’s no coincidence with those titles.
Adam: Obviously, we’d like to keep a surprise, but you know, Baelfire/Neal and Hook have a connection that we’ve already hinted at, and that’s something that’s explored in the final two hours of the season. And that may involve a second star to the right.
On Neal and Hook's relationship
Eddy: Yes, we could say so far, nobody’s been right.
Adam: Well, that we know of. Our fans are very smart, and maybe they’ve got it, maybe they haven’t, but we hope it’s a surprise. We can confirm he’s not Smee.
Eddy: By the way, I don’t know if you know this or not, but rewatching Peter Pan, which we’ve done on numerous times, the clock, Big Ben, is set to 8:15 in the movie. It’s at 8:14, and when the kids land on it, it goes to 8:15. [NOTE: 8:15 is the time the town's clock in Storybrooke was stuck at before Emma appeared in the first episode of season one.]
On the emergence of a new character:
Eddy: In the final two hours, you will hear about someone, you will think about someone, but you won’t see that someone ’til next year.
Any other big moments to look for?
Eddy: Emma and Regina have a game-changer.
Adam: Their relationship is going to change. It moves to a new place.
Eddy: Ariel could potentially be a Season Three. We’re definitely going to meet new characters.
Adam: We don’t want to give away who we’re planning to meet yet, but…
Eddy: If you watch the finale, you can probably guess who would be there.
On Maleficent's fate:
Eddy: Well, we saw, and we will see Maleficent in some form in the final three episodes. In fact, I would watch this week’s episode “The Evil Queen.”
On season 2's theme:
Eddy: I would say this, the theme at the beginning was: magic is coming. And the theme for the finale is: it always has a price.
