‘Once Upon a Time’ season 3 spoilers: News on Regina, Belle, Emma, and the Wicked Witch

The latest -There may still be quite a while until “Once Upon a Time” returns to ABC on March 9, but the waiting is over at least when it comes to getting some more news about what is coming up for season 3B. The characters may be separated for now, but did you really think that it was going to stay that way forever?

The first big thing to note, per TVLine, is that the Wicked Witch is going to have a huge role. She will share a ton of time with Lana Parrilla’s Regina, and is going to have a mythology that is deeply intertwined within the fabric of the show. While she has been called various names in “The Wizard of Oz” and other things, here she will have a name that is unique to the “Once Upon a Time” world. (This prevents any rights issues from coming up.)

Speaking of Regina, one other thing that you should expect moving forward is simply that the show is going to bring back Robin hood pretty early on in the new season, and what we have to look out for now is what is going to happen as a result of that. We’ve heard that he is the one true love for Regina, but she has to prepare herself to be open to it.

As for some other pairings, get ready to see a ton of Belle as we start to figure out what is going to happen with her and Rumpelstiltskin. Also, Emma’s not going to take too kindly to seeing Hook in New York without a clue as to who he is. Also, there is going to be a reason why it wasn’t Neal who hunted her down.

What do you think is going to happen moving forward the rest of this “Once Upon a Time” season?
