“Once Upon a Time” returned to the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con with a few new actors. Two of them — Colin O’Donoghue (Captain Hook) and Michael Raymond James (Neal/Baelfire) — gave interviews together. Which man will win Emma in the end?
The two men wouldn’t comment on the Season 3 trip to Neverland, but they did mention that the familiar characters found there — the producers had earlier mentioned Tinkerbell, for example) — would be skewed versions of the ones fans knew.
Unfortunately, no one can get Michael Raymond James to spill on whether or not Baelfire is still alive. His presence at Comic-Con does indicate that “Once” intends to bring him back, but it’s hard to say.
As would have to be necessary when these two men were together, questions brought up the issue of Emma. Which fellow will she choose in the end (you know, assuming Neil is not dead)? That may be a mystery for “Once Upon a Time” Season 3.
