Josh Dallas, Michael Raymond-James and Jennifer Morrison
Is Neal actually Peter Pan? And when will we finally meet Ariel?!
Before Once Upon a Time flashes back to the early days of the curse on Sunday (8/7c on ABC), TVGuide.com decided it's time for our sixth Lightning Round with the brain trust behind ABC's fairy-tale drama: executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis!
Lightning Round 5: Once Upon a Time bosses answer your burning questions
We grabbed your fan questions off Twitter and hit up Horowitz and Kitsis for a quick round of scoop, in which the producers had the option to answer, "Yes," "No" or "Can't Answer." Some of their answers, and possible non-answers, are pretty telling, so check them out below:
Was Storybrooke, the town, actually created by the curse?
Adam Horowitz: To be answered!
Will Regina (Lana Parrilla) ever learn that Rumple (Robert Carlyle) used her to enact the curse?
Horowitz: Yes. In fact, I think she kind of already knows it.
Will we see more of Emma's (Jennifer Morrison) life pre-Storybrooke?
Horowitz: Not this year.
Will Emma ever call Mary (Ginnifer Goodwin) and David (Josh Dallas) "mom" and "dad"?
Edward Kitsis: Perhaps someday she will.
Is Lacey, Belle's (Emilie de Ravin) alter ego, evil?
Kitsis: That's a tough question. A lot of people don't think Regina is evil, but a lot of people think she is.
Once Upon a Time Postmortem: How can Snow White redeem herself?
Will we see Aurora (Sarah Bolger) and Mulan (Jamie Chung) again this season?
Horowitz and Kitsis: Can't say!
Neal (Michael Raymond-James) has been to Neverland, but does that necessarily make him Peter Pan?
Kitsis: It does not!
Horowitz: Twitter is making an assumption. We can't answer questions based on assumptions.
Was Neverland also affected by the curse?
Horowitz: Can't say.
Even though Neal is engaged to Tamara (Sonequa Martin-Green), is there still hope for him and Emma?
Kitsis: This entire show is about hope. We would never suggest you lose it for anybody on this show.
Horowitz: There's always hope on Once Upon a Time.
Have you guys set plans in motion to actually show Ariel from The Little Mermaid?
Kitsis: Not this season.
Is there a reason why Mr. Gold's ring changed color after he got injured by Hook (Colin O'Donoghue)?
Horowitz and Kitsis: Pass!
Henry's fate, Belle's future, a trip to Neverland and 10 other Once Upon a Time spoilers
If magic runs in the family, could Henry (Jared Gilmore) also have magical powers?
Kitsis: That's always a possibility. He is the product of both dark and light magic.
Will there be death before the end of the season?
Kitsis: I hope so!
Horowitz: There will be prices paid toward the end of the season.
