There has been much speculation amongst “Once Upon a Time” fans that Rumpelstiltskin’s son Baelfire is actually Peter Pan — and now there is some official evidence to back up that theory.
From the official episode description for “Second Star to the Right”:
Emma, Mary Margaret and David go in search of Regina when they discover that she — along with some magic beans — have gone missing. But against Neal’s protests, Emma still believes that Tamara had something to do with Regina’s disappearance; and Mr. Gold contemplates telling Lacey the truth about his ability to conjure magic.
Meanwhile, after Rumplestiltskin abandons his son and lets him travel alone through a portal, young Bae finds himself back in 19th century London and is taken in by the Darling family — befriending their daughter Wendy.
Intriguing! We hope that Season 3 delves into his life in London and the way he ends up in Neverland as Peter Pan.
But more importantly, we like the showdown this sets up between Neal and Captain Hook in the final two episodes of “Once Upon a Time,” which air Sunday, May 5 and Sunday, May 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
