The mystery of who the Stranger is will soon be revealed on Once Upon a Time!
August W. Booth (Eion Bailey), a writer only initially known as "the Stranger," made his way to Storybrooke earlier this season. His very presence is significant since the curse prevents people in the town from leaving, and apparently Emma (Jennifer Morrison) was the only outsider to come there before him.
His arrival — especially after he added pages to Henry's fairy tale book — has sparked many debates as to who he actually is. Theories range from suggesting that he's Rumplestiltskin's son or perhaps Henry's father to even his being an older version of Henry, which would be awkward since the Stranger is seemingly attracted to Emma, Henry's mom. To get the scoop on who the Stranger is, TVGuide.com turned to writer and consulting producer Jane Espenson, who penned this upcoming Sunday's episode "The Return" (8/7c, ABC) and also offers up some juicy teases for the Season 1 finale...

Though Once Upon a Time features such iconic fairy tale characters as Snow White, Prince Charming, Rumplestiltskin and the Evil Queen, the old adage that true love's kiss can break even the strongest curse has yet to be successful on the ABC series.
So what will break the curse that keeps hundreds of fairy ...

Once Upon a Time there was an Evil Queen — but she wasn't the only evil force in all the land.
This Sunday's episode of Once will introduce the self-proclaimed Mistress of All Evil, Maleficent (True Blood's Kristin Bauer). In the original Sleeping Beauty story, Maleficent is the vengeful fairy who casts a spell upon Princess Aurora, causing her to fall into a deep sleep after being pricked by the spindle of a spinning wheel.
In the world of Once, however, Maleficent is...

ABC's Once Upon a Time is about to take the fairytale characters out of the world of make believe and bring them into reality.
In the series, (premiering Sunday at 8/7c on ABC), the Evil Queen banishes Snow White, Prince Charming and their fairytale kin to the real-world town of Storybrooke, where they lead normal lives, never realizing who they were. It's not until Henry (Jared Gilmore) drags his estranged mom, tough bail bondsman Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), into town to help her realize a shocking truth: Fairytales are real, and Emma is the daughter of Snow White.

On Sunday's season finale of True Blood, at least three, possibly four former cast members, previously thought to be dead, or as dead as one can be on this show, returned for an extra-spooky, Halloween-set season finale. Great, you think, just what this show needs, more characters. But wait! This episode also has a steep body count, my friends. At least four series regulars appeared to die during this hour. It's really hoary cliff-hanger stuff that will continue to enrage you for the next 10 months or so until True Blood's fifth season is finally upon us. Who died? Who was resurrected? Let's do this: I'll tell you what happened during this jam-packed hour, and then I'll make some wildly speculative predictions about Season 5. Then you let me know if you agree in the comments section below. Deal?
