Once Upon a Time introducing Merida in season 5

July 11

EW.com gives us an overlook of the new season and some of the highlights of today’s Comic Con panel for Once Upon A Time.

Despite being the savior, Emma Swan might not be able to fight the darkness that consumed her in the Once Upon a Time finale—but that’s okay, because she’s a pretty badass Dark Swan.

After the darkness within Rumple (Robert Carlyle) was accidentally set free, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) decided to sacrifice herself for the town and become the new Dark One, aka Dark Swan. But the big question was where Emma disappeared to after being consumed, which appeared to be answered in a special sneak peek shown during the Comic-Con panel on Saturday.

In the Enchanted Forest — specifically what appeared to be the prison that used to house Rumplestiltskin — a peasant delivers food to the lone occupant: The Dark Swan. Sporting new duds and a sparkly face — though not quite as intense as what Rumplestiltskin has — Emma rips out her captor’s heart after he is shocked to see a beautiful woman. “They said you were a monster,” he said. “Only on the inside,” she spit back before crushing it.

Yes, Emma has gone full-on evil. “Emma went through a lot in her life,” Morrison said. “She had a tough childhood. She’s had to overcome a lot of things. She’s tried to be the bigger person. Now that she’s tethered to the darkness, she’s free of that … She’s going to face the darkness in herself and figure out how to overcome it.”

As for the man who will hopefully save her, Hook has struggled with the darkness for years, only trying to be a better man for Emma. “He found love with Emma,” O’Donoghue said. “He has been a villain, but his girlfriend is nasty now, so who knows what’s going to happen?”

Speaking of the other Dark One, after the darkness completely consumed Rumple’s heart, the Apprentice pulled the darkness out, leaving Rumple in a coma as his body recovers from centuries of evil. Now with a pure heart, “The incarnation of Rumple this time around is slightly different,” Carlyle said. “He’s lost his mantle as the Dark One, but that’s not to say he doesn’t have that trickery about him. He still has that. Mr. Gold is presently in a coma, so he’s not doing too much.”

Other highlights from the panel:

-Brave is coming to Once Upon a Time, and EW has confirmed that Merida will be played by Scottish actress Amy Manson, whom fans might recognize from Being Human. A special sneak peek at next season — which you can watch below — showed off new character Merida and her awesome archery skills.

-Henry may come to regret destroying the Author’s quill.

-Hook may have a connection to Camelot: “Camelot exists in a parallel timeline,” executive producer Adam Horowitz said. “It’s existed. How we portray it and show you, it’s existed long ago, short ago and maybe in the future. It may have co-existed with [when Hook was in the Royal Navy].”

-Regina is “really now starting to accept that she can be happy,” Lana Parrilla said. And Robin Hood reciprocates. “He’s in love with Regina,” Sean Maguire said.

-The show’s upcoming 100th episode will be a special affair, slated to air as the spring premiere.

Comic-Con 2015: Everything you need to know before the Once Upon a Time panel

July 11

With the Dark Swan rising, who will step up to protect the residents of Storybrooke? And Can Emma be brought back from the darkness? We hope to get some answers on that and much more during the Once Upon a Time panel at Comic-Con on Saturday. To prepare for the big event, EW is here to give you a refresher on where the ABC fairy tale drama left off:

Where we left off: After the fairy tale world was turned upside down by the Author, Henry (Jared Gilmore) was able to save the day. But upon their return to Storybrooke, the darkness within Rumple (Robert Carlyle) was accidentally set free, so Emma (Jennifer Morrison) decided to sacrifice herself and become the new Dark One.

What we know about season 5: Now trapped with the powers of an ancient evil, Emma will be fighting her dark urges while discovering her new powers as the Dark Swan — though she’ll put a twist on those powers by potentially using love as a weapon. Meanwhile, the residents of Storybrooke will be on the hunt for Merlin, who may be able to set Emma free. Their quest — which will see Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Charming (Josh Dallas) cross some lines to save their daughter—will bring out a new Savior, while also introducing King Arthur and Guinevere. Plus: Lancelot (Sinqua Walls) returns! Get more scoop here and here.

Comic-Con burning question: Who’s the new Savior?

Josh Dallas: Ginnifer Goodwin Is the ‘Greatest Mother That I Know’

April 28

People.com shared this cute article where Josh talks about what a great mother Ginny is and about their son Oliver.

Parenthood has been a fairy tale for Once Upon a Time star Josh Dallas, and the first-time father knows that much of that is due to his wife and costar, Ginnifer Goodwin.

“It’s extraordinary because she is, literally, the greatest mother that I know,” the actor told PEOPLE while attending The John Varvatos 12th Annual Stuart House Benefit in West Hollywood on Sunday.

“It’s extraordinary to have your partner, who you’ve known all this time, blossom into this woman … who is so nurturing, so caring and just so cool. She’s so cool and she’s a cool mom. It’s great.”

Not to say that their 11-month-old son Oliver Finlay isn’t holding his own as well in the eyes of the proud papa.

“Every day is a milestone, like pulling himself up, walking around, holding onto things,” Dallas says, beaming. “He can climb up the stairs like a ninja. It’s just every day there’s something that’s a milestone that amazes you. Like holding his own bottle — that amazes you as a parent.”

And while fatherhood has the 33-year-old reveling in the simplest things in life, there is one well-recognized lament of the new parent.

“Sleep is elusive,” he admits with a chuckle. “Sleep is a slippery devil. I can’t seem to ever catch it.”

But somehow even sleep deprivation has the actor falling even deeper under the spell of his son. “[Fatherhood] changed a lot,” Dallas says. “And it’s changed because you don’t think about yourself anymore. There’s somebody else that you have to take care of. He’s the greatest person I know, my little dude, so it’s a pleasure to do that.”

Thankfully, for both Dallas and Goodwin, who celebrated their first wedding anniversary earlier this month, most fairy tales feature a fairy godmother, or — in this case — two.

“We have help,” Dallas happily admits. “We have our mothers, [and they] come up and it’s the greatest thing in the world. They’re our nannies, but they’re our son’s grandmothers. They get to spend a lot of time together, so we’re blessed.”

And all that time with Grandma seems to be working in Oliver’s favor.

“Listen, my son is going to be able to get away with anything with his grandmother,” Dallas jokes.

Ginnifer Goodwin Talks Motherhood, Baby Oliver’s First Milestones and Having More Kids!

January 9

Ginnifer is doing her first talking about motherhood this week and we love hearing her gushing about Oliver! (and Josh!) to E!Online.

Ginnifer Goodwin is opening up about motherhood!

At the 2015 People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday night, the 36-year-old and hubby Josh Dallas left their adorable 7-month-old baby boy, Oliver, at home so they could enjoy a date night out alone.

“It’s mommy and daddy night out. It’s crazy,” Goodwin told E! News before adding that they usually “never” get to go on date nights together.

Goodwin gushed of being a first time mom, “It’s so much better [than I thought]. It makes me feel like acting is not at all creative, but being a parent, anybody who’s a parent I want to like give an Oscar to.”

As for milestones and firsts, the Once Upon a Time star revealed of little Oliver, “He’s got teeth. He says ‘Hey.’ He learned high five. He’s pretty hip.”

And Goodwin and Dallas say they’re definitely plans on giving Oliver many brothers and sisters. “We’ll have as many as the universe will grant us,” Goodwin smiled.

Goodwin, who gave birth back in late May, also told E!’s Ross Mathews, “I am a lucky girl and we have a gorgeous, ridiculous kid.”

She also dished that Dallas is quite a supportive hubby and father. “He makes me laugh so much, and even if we squabble he makes me laugh, so I can’t even say angry—which is kind of its own level of frustrating. I want to be mad!” she said.

Ginnifer Goodwin Reveals Her Favorite Disney Princess, and It’s Not Snow White

January 8

I love this because her choice happens to be my favorite too!

Actress Ginnifer Goodwin may play Snow White on the hit TV show Once Upon a Time, but the star divulged to InStyle at last night’s People’s Choice Awards that she has a different favorite Disney princess.

“My favorite princess used to be Snow White,” Goodwin says. “Now that seems like such an egotistical answer somehow. So, I feel like I’m forced to change it up. It also changes depending on where I am in my Disneyphile-ness. I would say right now I’m into Belle the bookworm.”

And her reasoning for choosing the brunette beauty is sound: “I think she’s a great role model for young people. She values herself for her intellect, and not for the way she looks. She’s not codependent, not waiting for a man,” Goodwin shares. “If I were to ever have a daughter, that is the princess I would hope that she would gravitate towards.”

Ginnifer Goodwin Gushes Over Her “Gorgeous, Ridiculous Kid”

January 7

E!Online shares Ginnifer’s cute conversation from tonight’s red carpet. I think she is a proud mom!

Life has been a bit of a fairy tale lately for Ginnifer Goodwin.

Not only did she marry her real-life Prince Charming, Once Upon a Time co-star Josh Dallas, the happily wedded new mom was also nominated for two People’s Choice Awards headed into tonight’s show.

Oh yeah, and her baby boy is amazing.

“I am a lucky girl and we have a gorgeous, ridiculous kid,” Goodwin gushed to Ross Mathews on E!’s Live From the Red Carpet before the big ceremony at L.A.’s Staples Center.

Prince Charming doesn’t sound too bad, either.

“He makes me laugh so much,” she said of Dallas, “and even if we squabble he makes me laugh, so I can’t even say angry—which is kind of its own level of frustrating. I want to be mad!”

A good problem to have, Gin.

About eight months removed from giving birth, the glowing actress dressed her curves in a retro-cut white dress with a full long skirt and plunging V-neck. She completed the look with an envelope clutch and black pumps, very 1950s.

‘Once Upon A Time’s’ Ginnifer Goodwin & Josh Dallas On Mary Margaret’s Parental Worries

October 25

“Once Upon a Time’s” Mary Margaret and David/Charming are going on their own date night this Sunday night on ABC.

Last week, the fairytale couple (for the first time) experienced what it was like to watch their daughter, Emma, go out on a date, while they sat at home worrying. Date night for the couple themselves though, may present a different set of worries, including being away from baby Neal for the first time.

Ginnifer Goodwin explained what’s behind her character’s parental worries this season on “Once.”

“I think it’s because she put Emma in a wardrobe… and then she physically had — Neal was swept up from her arms by the Wicked Witch last season, so I think there’s like a physical need to hold tight and I also think that given what happened to Emma, I think that she thought that having a baby was gonna sort of make up for what happened before and that there would be like an [alleviating] of the guilt, but instead, she doesn’t really feel suddenly deserving somehow… of Neal at all,” Ginnifer said on the set last week.

“She believes that she needs to be like this ridiculously, unrealistically perfect multi-tasking mayor mother and that if she can’t do everything, it’s almost like she shouldn’t be allowed to do anything and so she’s also scared to ask for help,” the actress continued.

Josh Dallas, who plays Charming, said his character understands where Mary Margaret is coming from.

“He gets it, he gets why she’s doing it, you know? We haven’t had the best luck bringing up babies… We put them in wardrobes and they get taken away from us and they get swept up by wicked witches and things like that, so he understands why she’s being so protective in not letting go of baby Neal,” Josh explained.

“But, at the same time… he wants that chance to be able to be the father that he didn’t get to be with Emma, but he’s gonna be there and he’s gonna be supportive and he’s going to let her know that he’s there and… let her know that he wants to help and be there, but he also understand that she needs her time to be able to process it and go through what she needs to go through,” Josh added.

“Once Upon a Time” continues Sunday at 8/7c on ABC.
