You mean other than Elsa having been locked up in Rumple's vault all those years? It sure sounds like it! "Maybe there is an unlikely friendship that Charming had in his past that maybe literally changed the entire path of his life," Josh Dallas told me at Comic-Con when I asked the exact same question.

What can you say is coming up for Lindsay and Severide this season on Chicago P.D. and Chicago Fire— Nina
