Below the cut are a few spoilers for season 2 that have been making the rounds from sources such as TV|Line and E! Online.
Please discuss in the comments!
From Ask Ausiello (TV|Line):
Question: If anyone would have the answer to this, I know it would be you: Could you find out when the second season of Once Upon a Time will pick up (i.e. minutes later, weeks, etc.)? —Megan
Ausiello: How about instead I share with you two fun facts and one scooplet? Fun fact No. 1: The smoke that poured out of the well and swept through Storybrooke was originally going to be green, to match the mist that consumed fairytale land in the pilot. But it was changed to purple to be “more symbolic and magical,” Lana Parrilla tells us. Fun fact No. 2: Ginnifer Goodwin has a tattoo of a tiny apple (heh) on the inside of her right forearm, “though they won’t let me [display] it on the show,” she laments. And now for that scooplet: As Josh Dallas reminded us in our Q&A, we still don’t know Charming’s real name, but co-creator Adam Horowitz says it will definitely be revealed in Season 2. Please let it be “Morty.”
Now that magic has come to Storybrooke, will the Evil Queen be in need of her magic mirror? Because he might be a little busy given that Giancarlo Esposito (who also played Sidney Glass) is now a cast member on NBC’s Revolution. But in a pinch, “I think I can [pop up on Once],” the onetime Breaking Bad guy tells me. “And I would love to be able to do that. I am so happy about their pickup, because it’s a show my kids can watch! So you know I’m going to be trying to go back and forth.”
From E! Online:
Flytheocean: We will see the Charming family’s first real reunion in the s2 premiere of OUAT, yes?
“I’m hoping for a family reunion!” Ginnifer Goodwin tells us of Once Upon a Time‘s second season, while Jennifer Morrison spills that she’s been told that Emma will be “exploring the relationship with her mother now that she knows who her mother is.”
snow_bluebird: Magic is back Regina will be powerful again, is she not afraid of Rumpel’s revenge?
While Lana Parilla couldn’t tell us too much, she says viewers will see a more evil side of Regina and yet continue to see flickers of humanity. “A combination of both,” she teases. “I think she softened with her relationship with Henry. I think she’s afraid to lose him!”
