Q&A with Executive Producers about Season 3

It is that time again. TVGuide had another lighting round with the executive producers – Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis – about our favorite television series “Once Upon a Time.” With season three’s battle of evil versus wicked, so many things could possibly happen. It is time to dig deeper with the show’s executives and learn what that is.

Most of the questions generated, are from fan’s questions off Twitter. The rules of the lighting round are that the producers have the option to answer, “Yes,” “No” or “Can’t answer.” With that said, here we gooooo!

[highlight] Will Regina’s sleeping curse that Zelena stole come back to the story? [/highlight]

Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis both agreed that the sleeping curse would not come back into play.

[highlight] Was Zelena calling Belle Mrs. Gold to hint the marriage we heard about in the finale? [/highlight]

Kitsis said that she was just being wicked. Horowitz came back with that Zelena was just pushing her buttons.

Note: This was not really yes or no! What do you think?

[highlight] Will Regina somehow play a role brining Henry’s memories back? [/highlight]

Horowitz said that is an assumption that Henry will get his memories back. However, he did tell us that she will play a role attempting to get it back.

[highlight] Neal mentioned the message that Hook got. Is there a chance he sent the message? [/highlight]

Kitsis said there is always a chance for anything on “Once Upon a Time.”

[highlight] Will Lumiere continue to play a role in the show? [/highlight]

Kitsis said they believed that he was a fun character. In fact, they would be interested in seeing him again next year.

[highlight] We know that magic comes with a price. Does this mean that Zelena had to sacrifice something or someone who she loved the most to cast the curse? [/highlight]

Horowitz said that casting a curse, no matter who does it, would still follow the exact rules they established. Kitsis came back with you always have to give up something you loved most. They confirmed that someone’s heart was given up.

[highlight] The original story, the Wicked Witch of the East was destroyed by a bucket of water. Is this what will kill the Wicked Witch? [/highlight]

Horowitz responded with, “Who says we’re going to kill her?”

Note: OMMGG!!

[highlight] Who is the Wizard and do we know this person already? [/highlight]

Horowitz said we might.

[highlight] Who is Zelena’s father and will we meet him? [/highlight]

Kitsis confirmed that we will meet Zelena’s father and learn who the Wizard is this weekend.

Note: Double OMGG!!!

[highlight] Speaking of fathers, what about who Hook’s father is? [/highlight]

Horowitz said that we will not learn who Hook’s father is this year.

[highlight] Will fans learn what kingdom sent Hook and his brother, Liam, to search for the Dreamshade? [/highlight]

Kitsis said that we probably won’t ever learn that.

[highlight] Snow White and Aurora are both pregnant. Is there a connection? [/highlight]

Horowitz just said they are in the same Mommy and Me group.

Note: What does that even mean?!

[highlight]With Zelena around, is Snow and Charming’s baby safe?  [/highlight]

Kitsis said he does not see how anyone is safe around Zelena.

[highlight]Emma and Henry came back to Storybrooke from New York City. Will we see any flashbacks from during their time in the real world?  [/highlight]

This year, we will not see anything else about New York City, but that is a possibility for next season. This was a response from Kitsis.

[highlight]With the death of Neal, does this mean Emma will not get a happy ending?  [/highlight]

Kitsis said that she was not robbed of a happy ending, but things like that do not happen overnight. It is something that has to be worked towards.

[highlight]Will we learn who the Black Fairy is?  [/highlight]

Kitsis said yes! They would love to show that someday.

[highlight] We heard about Michael Socha becoming a series regular. Will he join Robin Hood and the merry men?  [/highlight]

Horowitz said that it is possible, but Kitsis said it won’t be in season three.

[highlight] Will other Wonderland characters come to “Once Upon a Time?” [/highlight]

As of right now, Horowitz said it is just the Knave. He went on to say how the story for Wonderland was meant to be for only one-year. It was a close-ended tale, and it will not be continued on “Once Upon a Time.” On the other hand, Kitsis did confirm that we may see a few familiar faces from Wonderland pop up here and there.

[highlight] Will season four have a new villain? [/highlight]

Kitsis confirmed yes.

[highlight]Will the villain be related to Henry?  [/highlight]

Horowitz said not necessarily.

[highlight] For the remainder of season three, will there be more deaths? [/highlight]

Kitsis confirmed there will be more. Ahh!
