After having put their differences aside to work together and save the day, the fairy tale characters from the ABC drama series Once Upon a Time are now facing a new threat, in the form of the Wicked Witch of the West (Rebecca Mader). With Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) having successfully jogged Emma Swan’s (Jennifer Morrison) memory, which had been wiped clean in order to save the residents of Storybrooke, she must once again help her fairy tale family and friends out of a desperate situation. The show also stars Ginnifer Goodwin, Lana Parrilla, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Michael Raymond-James, Jared S. Gilmore and Robert Carlyle.
During this recent interview to discuss what’s to come for the remainder of this season, showrunners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis talked about why the Wicked Witch wants vengeance, how much we’ll learn about her backstory, what type of Glinda (Sunny Mabrey) we’ll see, that they’ll be hitting on a number of touchstones from the L. Frank Baum books, the journey for Henry to get his memory back, how Neal is dealing with his grief over Emma and Henry, where Emma’s heart is at when it comes to Neal and Hook, where things are at for Belle, an upcoming flashback to a young Cora (Rose McGowan), how disappointed they were not to be able to get Jamie Dornan to return this season, and just how much of a mystery Snow White’s pregnancy will turn out to be. Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
