Lightning Round 9: 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:

A hero, a villain, a pirate and a mother. That's what it's going to take to save Henry.
During Sunday's Once Upon a Time premiere, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) learned the hard way that it will take a group effort to save her son, even if that means teaming with the parents she can't forgive and the villains who have made her life hell. After surviving a storm literally brought on by their excessive fighting, Emma decided that it was time to take a leadership role in the group that will combine both the best of being pure of heart and dastardly evil.

Neverland is a place where anything you imagine can come true — which is both good and bad news for Once Upon a Time's ragtag group of fairy tale characters.
When Once kicks off its third season on Sunday (8/7c, ABC), Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), Prince Charming (Josh Dallas), Emma (Jennifer Morrison), Regina (Lana Parrilla), Captain Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) and Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) head to Peter Pan's homeland to rescue Henry (Jared Gilmore). But having heroes and villains teaming up won't be as easy as it sounds. In fact, it's quite the opposite, as the Charmings have to deal with their foes and internal family issues all while trying to save Henry.

Before Ariel's highly anticipated arrival next season on Once Upon a Time, other mermaids will make a splash on the ABC hit's Season 3 premiere. But unlike Ariel, these are nasty little fishies. According to Lana Parrilla, her Evil Queen and the rest of the Storybrooke gang traveling to Neverland will encounter a pod of finned creatures who are "beautiful, full-bodied and not the nicest mermaids. They're more like sirens."
Tom Ellis, Sean Maguire
There's a new Robin Hood in town!
Sean Maguire has been tapped to replace Tom Ellis as Robin Hood on the third season of Once Upon a Time, TVGuide.com has confirmed.

Fans of Michelle Ryan (and we know you're out there), don't cry for the former Bionic Woman. She's already gone on to her next TV project but you'll have to go to the U.K. or wait for its arrival on BBC America to catch it. The BBC reports that Ryan has returned to her Beeb roots and is currently filming Mr. Eleven, a two-part romantic comedy. Ryan plays a teacher who's determined to marry her 1lth lover. (It's a numbers thing.) Her lovers include Meet the Spartans' Sean Maguire, who also had an ill-fated fling with American TV in the CBS sitcom The Class. We expect Katee Sackhoff will not play a role. Ileane Rudolph
It's really a shame that this was the final episode of the season for The Class. I really think it has hit its stride now. It seems like the writers have finally found the pairings that work and have been able to mix a slight bit of drama into the comedy (and do it well). I've been consistently entertained throughout the last month or two. Personally, I'm disappointed it's going to leave the lineup. Some good laughs before the 24 bloodbath have been good for my Monday nights. We all talk a lot in this blog about the missing people from the show. Holly and Fern didn't show up again. Aaron finally came back, though that certainly could have been a hair double that Kyle was hugging at the end. The one person that never gets mentioned, however, is Penny! I completely forgot about Yonk's daughter. I probably said this the first time she showed up, too, but what did Yonk previously marry to produce that? I'm glad she's not full time as she's a one-joke, evil eating machine, but once every...
Happy New Year to all the fans of The Class. Are the critics finally getting to me? All I've heard since the start of the show was the word "uneven." Up until this episode, I thought the show was friggin' hilarious. But with this one, I too thought it was "uneven." There were many funny moments. In fact, more funny moments in this episode than According to Jim has had in its entire run. But there were also many jokes that just fell completely flat. To me, this was a case of: How many jokes can we cram into 22 minutes?Maybe my thoughts are changing because I hate Palmer. Jaime King isn't bad to look at, but her character is annoying. Honestly, I'm not that familiar with the career of King to know whether this is bad acting or a poorly developed character. But either way, I'm with Kat on this one Palmer needs to bite the dust. Or maybe my thoughts are changing because I hate Fern. True, she brings comic relief to everyone around her, like Nicole and Duncan with their line: "Oh,...
Aww, poor Richie. Wait, I started last week like that, too. Seems like I could do that every week now. I think that even though technically Jason Ritter would get top billing in the show, Jesse Tyler Ferguson has hilariously become the one to watch. I'm drawn to the character because he's not perfect. There's a little bit of Richie in all of us except for the running-people-over and smashing-into-stores thing. He's found the love of his life, and everything he's doing is making it more complicated to be with her. But we've had two interventions now. First, Lina basically saved him from overdosing on pills and now she's saved him from well, sitting in a convenience store. I'm hoping that every four episodes or so, Lina isn't going to have to save him from something else, but maybe that's the route the producers should take. Some of the funniest moments: Holly broadcasts that Richie is in the car and has "erratic behavior," and the shot goes back to him frantically...
For our first jaunt into the blogging world of The Class, let's play a little game. It's called, "Where they were, where they are now, and what I think" or WTWWTANAWIT for short. Sorry, it's a work in progress. Seriously though, since we're jumping in the middle, we'll do a quick recap. And then I'll tell you where I'm at, so you can get a feel where I'm coming from. Where they were:Ethan Hass (Jason Ritter)and Kat Warbler (Lizzy Caplan) have become good buddies. They hang together a lot, and you just know sooner or later they are going to kiss. But right now, she likes pushing him to his limit. Where they are now: Kat apparently likes pictures of body parts that are unattached, or simply gross. She shows Richie a picture of a buttock which he rightfully points out "you rarely see them out alone." Ethan finally told his date that he wasn't Dan Slutsky. And he still thought he'd get to keep her! Ha. What I think:Ethan is growing on me. I didn't liked the character at the start, but s...
