Is Henry doomed because of the prophecy? Will Emma finally confront Neal?
As Once Upon a Time returns for its final run of Season 2 episodes on Sunday (8/7c on ABC), TVGuide.com decided it's time for our seventh Lightning Round with the brain trust behind ABC's fairy-tale drama: executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis.
Lightning Round 6: 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 — but this time, there's a twist! In addition to the producers being able to answer "Yes," "No" or "Can't Answer," our finale edition of Lightning Round enables them to also answer "Next Season." Some of their answers, and possible non-answers, are pretty telling, so check them out below:
The Evil Queen is — wait for it — evil. It's in her name. It's in her nature. She's proven it time and again on Once Upon a Time, and yet her portrayer Lana Parrilla insists there's good in there somewhere. Sunday's midseason finale will put that theory to the test.
Is speed the new suspense on TV?
As Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) race to secure passage through the portal back to Storybrooke, Regina and Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) will do everything in their power to keep the ultimate evil queen Cora (Barbara Hershey) from coming through — even if that means putting Emma and Snow's lives in danger. Unfortunately, that seems to go against Regina's attempts to gain Henry's (Jared Gilmore) trust, which creates the conundrum she'll face on Sunday's episode (8/7c, ABC). To get the scoop on how she'll deal, TVGuide.com turned to Parrilla:
As if Once Upon a Time's David didn't have enough going on with his wife and daughter missing, now his sworn enemy King George (Alan Dale) is coming back on Sunday's episode — and he's back with a vengeance.
"King George comes to Storybrooke and he's obviously very hurt and very angry at Charming and wants revenge on him for basically ruining his life," Josh Dallas tells TVGuide.com. To recap: King George enlisted David — in a Prince and the Pauper style story — to take the place of his son in order to marry King Midas' daughter and obtain all his gold. Now King George will attempt to run David's name through the mud and turn the people of Storybrooke against their "prince.
Those who thought breaking the curse on Once Upon a Time would restore happiness for our favorite fairy-tale characters will be in for a rude awakening when the magical ABC series returns Sunday (8/7c on ABC).
The curse being broken and magic coming to Storybrooke is, in fact, not a good thing — despite the smile on Regina's (Lana Parrilla) face. "The breaking of the curse is the beginning of the final battle," Jennifer Morrison warns TVGuide.com.
The X-Files alum Annabeth Gish is the latest actress to land a magical role on Once Upon a Time, TVGuide.com has learned.
