During the season 1 finale of “Once Upon a Time,” a certain move by Emma made it fairly clear that the dragon otherwise known as Maleficent was dead — however, isn’t anything possible when you live in the world of magic? With the recent announcement that Sarah Bolger is coming on board the hit ABC as Sleeping Beauty, and certainly makes it appear more possible that we could see the return of Kristin Bauer van Straten at some point.
As a matter of fact, the actress — who is too big a part of “True Blood” to really be able to appear in any sort of permanent capacity — still is interested in coming back to casting some more evil magic all over Storybrooke. Speaking to TV Guide, she did a pretty good job at making her hopes for a return rather clear:
“I was hoping when that mist strolled into town that that meant that anything is possible.”
Even if Maleficent is truly dead in Storybrooke, there are still plenty of opportunities for her story to become more clear in the fairytale world that was. After all, we have the yin to her yang finally coming on board the show, and now she can be seen in a capacity that is different than just her being the Evil Queen’s frenemy. It’s still an interesting turn for the actress — even though Pam is certainly not exactly the poster child for morality on the HBO, she still has a heart trapped somewhere inside of that good body. Meanwhile, we’re not quite sure if Maleficent has much of a heart at all.
