Even though there may be many new faces entering the world of Storybrooke on “Once Upon a Time” this coming season, executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz are still doing something rather smart (and rather similar to how their former colleague Damon Lindelof would handle the large cast of “Lost”) when it comes to the season premiere on September 30 — making sure it still keeps the focus on one central character.
According to a new report from E! News, this episode (which is entitled “Broken,” as previously reported) is going to focus primarily on the character of Ginnifer Goodwin’s Mary Margaret, and pretty much the entire world that has shifted dramatically around her. A few days before the finale, she was a schoolteacher who had some feelings for David, and was also trying to help out her new friend Emma in any way that she could. Now, she knows that Emma just so happens to be her long-lost daughter, and that David is really the man she is destined to be with. Did we mention that they also now know that they are fairy tale characters? Whether it is due to any of this or her relationship with the Evil Queen Regina — who really turned evil hanks to some of her own actions — Snow White herself really seems like an appropriate way to show us everything that is happening now in the town now that the curse is “broken” and the magic has been unleashed.
After this episode, we can probably expect to see some installments focusing on some more of our series regulars along with a few of our new guest stars — including Sleeping Beauty, Captain Hook, Mulan, and possibly even a man named Jack.
