ONE MORE WEEK! Who else is excited?!?! Entertainment Tonight gives us a rundown on some of the things we have to look forward to in the new season on Once Upon A Time!
You love Once Upon a Time, and we love dishing out spoilers.
So were going to make this a win-win situation by spilling absolutely everything we know about the enchanting drama’s fourth season! We had a lengthy chat with the OUAT magic-makers, executive producers Adam Horowitzand Eddy Kitsis, and we’re practically bursting with spell-binding scoop on your favorite couples, “iconic” plot-points, Storybrooke’s Frozen frenzy, and much more!
First Date Jitters: Calling all Captain Swan fans, this one’s for you! Now that the obstacles between Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and Emma (Jennifer Morrison) have finally vanished, it’s time to watch the chemistry-charged couple experience some adorable firsts. “Captain Swan fans can look forward to seeing their first date,” Kitsis triumphantly revealed to ETonline.
However Horowitz warns that you shouldn’t freak out just yet! “Like most first dates, things don’t go as smoothly as you’d hope,” he said. Yikes! Kitsis added, “It is still a drama and as much as we’d like to just have the two of them order pizza and watch Netflix, I think our fans – even though some of them would like to see that scene – would be bored.” Ummm…. No we wouldn’t. Give us pizza and Captain Swan cuddles!
Adding to the awkwardness of a new relationship, Emma is going to have a tough time getting her charming father to approve of her new bad boy beau. “What I’d like to see is Captain Hook get the father speech from Charming (Josh Dallas),” Kitsis teased. “I wouldn’t let my daughter date a pirate!” Hmm… but would you let her live with one? Since the Jolly Roger is still M.I.A., will we get to see any Captain Swan sleepovers? “I would say [moving in together] is a bit fast,” Horowitz said. “But I think Emma is going to realize this year that she needs her own place.”
Royal Problems: Last season we were crushed when Regina (Lana Parrilla) lost her happily ever after with Maid Marian’s introduction, and it looks like we’re going to start off this season where we left off. “We’re going to pick up right after that and so she’s really stunned,” Horowitz revealed of our beloved queen. “She never though Marian was going to come back. She certainly didn’t think Emma would travel back in time and ruin her life.” Dun dun duuuun!
So what’s next for our broken-hearted Regina? “It’ll be interesting to see how she’ll deal with this tragedy in her life because in the past, this would’ve been handled very simply: She’d go up to her, rip her heart out and that would be the end of it,” Horowitz laughed. “Now she’s got three seasons of growth and she’s going to be tested for the first time and that’s kind of what her arc is for the first ten. We’re going to see how she handles that.” All we know is we want plenty of Outlaw Queen moments, stat!
