“Once Upon a Time” executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz were joined by cast members Josh Dallas and Rebecca Mader for a WonderCon panel on Saturday (April 19) down in Anaheim, Calif. and the foursome dropped some major teases for the final episodes of the ABC fairytale drama’s Season 3.
In fact, in Kitsis’ own words, “These next few episodes are just a non-stop freight train of answers.” Yeah, things are about to get crazy on “OUAT.”
The audience in attendance was treated to a sneak peek viewing of Sunday’s (April 20) episode, “Bleeding Through,” which was full of shipper payoffs, big reveals and shocking flashbacks. But Kitsis and Horowitz are already excited for fans to see next Sunday’s (April 27) episode, “A Curious Thing.”
“Next week’s episode is one of my favorite Snow/Charming episodes,” Kitsis says. “And we’ll find out all about the baby.”
Dallas adds, “We also find out who cast the curse, don’t we?”
“Yeah we do, don’t we, Josh?” Kitsis confirms. “That’s a pretty big reveal!”
And the teases didn’t stop there. Horowitz told the audience — to big applause, no less — something big about Henry getting his memory back. “Henry’s memory issues will be decided one way or another by the end of this season,” Horowitz says. “One way or another.”
As for Henry’s father Neal who died in a recent episode, Kitsis revealed that we may not have seen the last of Neal/Baelfire. “He will remain in our hearts — and in flashbacks,” Kitsis says. Both Kitsis and Horowitz also discussed how Neal’s sacrifice was very meaningful in the fact that it made Neal a hero, and ended the family’s history of cowardice, first with Pan then Rumpel.
Speaking of Rumpel, this Sunday’s episode of “OUAT” features a very surprising exchange between Rumpel and Zelena/the Wicked Witch, one that Rumpel/Belle shippers will have mixed feelings about. But Kitsis had these words to say about a Rumbelle reunion: “I hope so or else that would be very bleak. But you never know on this show.”
“Once Upon a Time” airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
