With only hours to go until the season 1 finale of “Once Upon a Time,” it’s fair to say that tension is high — mostly because we are already sitting on the edge of our seat. However, the good news is that this is exactly what the show wants from us as they prepare to drop a few major bombshells on us that could change the very fabric of the show.
Is Emma going to finally realize her destiny in the context of the curse? That much is still unclear, but speaking to TVLine a man who has had his share of “Charming” moments in Josh Dallas had the following to say about a twist that is going to be rocking very much the fabric of the entire season:
“Something is going to happen that the fans are not going to expect. It’s big, it’s epic…. So many questions are answered and things are resolved, but that just means there’ll be a whole other load of questions!”
What is this twist going to involve? That is still unclear, but there are some rather interesting season 2 possibilities already based on pilot casting. Giancarlo Esposito’s future as Sidney / the Magic Mirror may be limited due to a new commitment over at NBC; meanwhile, the lack of a pickup (at least for the time being) for Emilie de Ravin’s “Americana” means that the door could be open for more of Belle during season 2 of the show — that is, if producers plan to touch on her relationship with Rumpelstiltskin / Mr. Gold more than they already have.
What do you want to see during the finale, and are there any characters you want to see become a focus for season 2?
