For everyone who has been excited about “Once Upon a Time” season 5 to date, it is easy to understand why. This is a show, after all, that is bringing in Camelot, Merida, adventure, and Emma Swan as a villain. It is tackling a lot, and this is just in the first eleven or so episodes.
We are sure that with some of these things in mind, a Henry love story to many is probably not at the top of the priority list of things that people really want to see, but we still do think that there are a variety of reasons to be interested in this. For one, you have to remember that this is a kid who is so much more integral to the show than he ever was before! As the Author, he is responsible for crafting stories and ensuring happy endings … but as executive producer Edward Kitsis tells TV Guide, it looking as though he could get distracted:
“Being the Author doesn’t go away… but Henry’s got a holy quest of his own … You see, as he starts to become a teenager, someone has caught his eye, and I fear [being the] Author is secondary to, ‘Who’s that person over there?’ Love for Henry is coming. We wouldn’t go to Camelot and not have Henry fall in love. I would watch the second episode where we might meet Henry’s first crush.”
There are so many different threads that are going to be worked out in the opening episodes, and we don’t expect this to always get a spotlight. However, it will always be off somewhere, bubbling underneath the surface.
