What will happen to Emma and Henry? Who is the Wicked Witch really?
Since fans still have a long wait until Once Upon a Time returns, TVGuide.com decided it's time for our 11th Lightning Round with the brain trust behind ABC's fairy-tale drama, executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis.
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:
Will we get an answer as to why Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) and Neal (Michael Raymond James) had to go back to the Enchanted Forest even though neither came via the curse?
Adam Horowitz: Anyone not from this world went back to where they were from.
Edward Kitsis: Except for Emma (Jennifer Morrison), who was the savior. She was a special exception.
Since Regina undid the curse so that Storybrooke never existed, does that mean any deaths in Storybrooke didn't occur?
Kitsis: No, death is death.
Horowitz: Everything that happened in those three years actually happened. It's not that anything was undone. All the events of the time in Storybrooke are real and occurred and affected the characters. The only difference is that Emma doesn't have memories of it.
Kitsis: I think the subtext of the question is will Jamie Dornan be alive. He is busy shooting a movie, but as always, we want him as much as possible. No one loves Dornan more than me.
Will Emma finally have a friend who isn't her mom?
Kitsis: She will. She absolutely will. In a lot of ways, I might say that Hook has become a friend that isn't her mom.
Will we get some Hook versus the modern world moments?
Will we find out what deal Hook made with Pan (Robbie Kay) to escape Neverland?
Kitsis: We will not get to that this year.
Have we seen the last of Neverland?
Horowitz: This year, yes.
Could Greg (Ethan Embry) still be alive since Blue (Keegan Connor Tracy) returned to her body when the Shadow was burned?
Kitsis: Absolutely he could be, but he's stuck in a cave in Neverland. Since we're not going this year, I don't think we'll see him.
Will we see Oz?
Horowitz and Kitsis: Yes.
Will we find out who the parents of the Wicked Witch (Rebecca Mader) are?
Is the Wicked Witch related to any of the characters we've seen on the show?
Kitsis: Can't tell you.
Do other characters besides Regina have history with the Wicked Witch?
Will we know for sure who Emma's true love is by the end of Season 3?
Horowitz: Can't say.
Any chance we'll see a young Belle?
Horowitz: There's always a chance. We'd love to get to that.
Kitsis: Not this year.
Will we see Belle and Neal bond over their shared loss of loved ones?
Did the storybook appear to Mary Margaret when Henry began to question his situation?
Kitsis: That's a tricky one. It's not a yes, no or can't answer.
Horowitz: You've seen part of the reasoning in Episode 311 and hopefully more.
Kitsis: More to come!
Does Snow's heart still have a dark spot on it?
Will we see Ursula (voice by Yvette Nicole Brown) in any future episodes?
Kitsis: Not this season.
Horowitz: But we'd love to!
Will we see more of Maleficent (Kristin Bauer van Straten) and Aurora's (Sarah Bolger) past soon?
Kitsis: In a flashback, no. Will we learn more about Aurora's past, yes.
Horowitz: In a manner of speaking, yes.
Any chance any of the Frozen characters could come to life on Once?
Kitsis: That has been our favorite movie this year. We would love to, but not this year.
Will we see where Emma was when she was younger?
Kitsis: Not this season, but we intend to next year.
Will we see Roland, Robin Hood's (Sean Maguire) son, again?
Is the character who dies male?
Horowitz: Can't say.
Kitsis: We're not telling. You're just going to have to watch!
