‘Once Upon a Time’ season 2 spoilers: Never forgetting the past

Based on what happened on the season 1 finale for “Once Upon a Time,” there’s no question that some major changes are coming to Storybrooke. Magic is going to abound throughout the community, and everyone now knows about who they were in their past lives in the fairy tale world that was.

Speaking to E! News in a new interview, our tough-as-nails Snow White in Ginnifer Goodwin is quick to say that this change is going to introduce new layers to every one of the characters on the show, but at the same time, they are going to continue to keep a certain element of both the Storybrooke characters we have come to know, and the identities of who these people were before the curse was ever placed on them:

“We’re going to remember our parallel lives, so we’ll be creating essentially a third character. They are going to blend the two characters we’ve already been playing …┬áIt’s going to be a brand-new show. But I think it will still be all the characters the fans know and love.”

The way Goodwin talks about multiple universe actually in some ways brings back memories of another show that many executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Hororwitz worked on in “Lost.” The difference here? There actually seems to be more of a tangible connection between the worlds, and we are going to see that play out in full force once the new season premieres.

Understandably, mostly plot details about the new season are still being kept under wraps — but expect to find out so much more when the “Once Upon a Time” panel arrives at Comic-Con next week. (Find out more details here.)

Do you appreciate the move that Horowitz and Kitsis made to bring these two worlds together so far? To check out more “Once Upon a Time” casting news for season, visit our scoop concerning both Sleeping Beauty and Mulan.
