While there have been some episodes on “Once Upon a Time” season 2 that have been a tad more forgettable, there is also another that we have a feeling no one is going to be forgetting about anytime soon: “Tallahassee.” This was effectively the story of how Emma Swan met the man in Neal Cassady who would become Henry’s father down the road, and it was also the story about how he was persuaded by August (Eion Bailey) into betraying her in order to allow her to head to prison and later fulfill her destiny.
So are we going to see a sequel to this soon? In a new post on Twitter, executive producer Adam Horowitz confirmed that the 14th episode of the season airing during the February sweeps (and one before we could see a character potentially die) is going to be entitled “Manhattan,” which is significant for a number of reasons:
1. Couldn’t Jennifer Morrison’s character have spent some time in the city before? She’s showing quite a knack for being well-traveled.
2. Neal was seemingly living in New York when he received a note in the premiere telling him that something (the curse?) was “broken.” This also has been interpreted by many as proof that August is still alive.
Many thought that the “Tallahassee” title was an homage to “Lost” given that Horowitz also worked on that show, and there has been some speculation that this title could be a subtle wink to “Fringe,” which he never worked on but he has a common link to in “Lost” guru J.J. Abrams. The issue with this? It’s basically that the notable mention of Manhattan on the Fox series came when the borough was spelled “Manhatan,” and it was a sign that the characters were in an alternate universe.
