ABC has released some November sweeps info plus new pictures for the upcoming episodes of “Once Upon a Time” — and one photo has us particularly intrigued.
Above, Emma and the mysterious man from the season premiere look pretty friendly. And the cast list from that episode, titled “Tallahassee,” reveals the mysterious man’s name to be Neal Cassady. Not that that tells us much, but it’s nice to have a name for him. The description reads:
With the hopes of finding a magical compass that could help her and Mary Margaret get back to Storybrooke, Emma takes a journey with a not-too-trustworthy Captain Hook up a treacherous beanstalk in an attempt to steal the item from a murderous giant (Jorge Garcia, “Lost”). Meanwhile, Emma’s past is revealed to be anything but magical when she meets up with a fellow thief who wants to make an honest woman out of her.
So Neal is presumably this thief — and he’s possibly in love with Emma? “Make an honest woman out of her” might mean turning her away from a life of crime, but that phrase generally means to get married. Who thinks he might be Henry’s dad?! “Tallahassee” airs Sunday, Nov. 4.
Meanwhile, ABC has also teased the Sunday, Nov. 11 episode, titled “Child of the Moon,” which gives Ruby/Red a showcase and introduces guest star Annabeth Gish.
Ruby’s fear about turning into a wolf during the first curse-free Storybrooke full moon is confirmed when one of the town’s residents is viciously murdered, and Ruby is the prime suspect; Decker – aka King George – threatens to expose David as a shepherd, not a prince, and not fit to run the town as sheriff; and Leroy stumbles upon some treasure in the Storybrooke mine that could help bring Mary Margaret and Emma back into our world. Meanwhile, in the fairytale land that was, Red Riding Hood finds a kindred spirit in Anita (Annabeth Gish), a charismatic and mysterious leader of a pack of humans who, like Red, turn out to be wolves.
Should be an exciting few weeks in Storybrooke and Fairytale Land. Check out all the new Season 2 pictures in our gallery.
