One of the questions in this week’s Ask Ausiello article was about some of the events in the season 1 finale, with the response from Exec Producer Adam Horowitz.
As the OUAT fandom is so international, I’ll put the question and response behind the cut to save spoiling people who haven’t seen the finale yet. There are also allusions to season 2 but no concrete spoilers. They do love to tease us!!
Question: Probably a stupid question, but in the Once Upon a Time finale, did Rumple restore the magic — even if it meant empowering Regina — because he was so ticked about Belle being hidden away so long? —Joshua
Ausiello: You are correct — that was a stupid question. ”His plan was set in motion long before he knew that Belle was alive,” notes exec producer Adam Horowitz. “ So all his actions in the finale were part of something else going on. When he discovers that Belle is alive and that Regina had her locked away, that’s a wrinkle in his plan and something that he must deal with in Season 2 while he also deals with whatever agenda he already has (hey, we’re not gonna spill that just yet!).”
