Is Robbie Kay returning as Pan to Once Upon a Time season 7? Based on some of the evidence that is out there at the moment, this return certainly appears as though it’s possible.
Speculation surrounding the return of Kay started courtesy of the Instagram photo below, one that featured the actor with a bicycle with “Mr. Gold” plastered across it. Co-creator Adam Horowitz also commented on the image on Twitter.
While this image by no means guarantees that we’re going to be getting a chance to see Kay again, it does offer a little bit of hope — he was absolutely fantastic as Pan, who was without a doubt one of the greatest villains Once Upon a Time had the vast majority of its run. He was sinister, he was scary, and he was everything you could have possibly hoped for. We’re never going to envision Peter Pan the same way because of him.
Yet, there are some other things that are also worth remembering when it comes to this character; primarily, we’re talking here about the fact that he was Rumpelstiltskin’s father. While Pan is dead, could there still be some way that these two can find piece? There are always other dimensions or alternate realities that could explored — this could be something traced more to the afterlife. Or, maybe Pan returns via some sort of dream sequence. This is why we’ve never bought the whole idea of someone being gone from this show for good, whether it be Robin Hood or Sheriff Graham. There are always ways, with a little bit of imagination, to bring people back. You just have to have them available and have the right idea in order to make it happen.
Once Upon a Time returns with new episodes on Friday, March 2.
