“Once Upon a Time” executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis are going back to their roots to an extent on an upcoming season 2 episode of the show, at least when it comes to one thing: bringing on board an actor that they already know and love in Jorge Garcia. He is far from the first star of the landmark ABC show to cross over here, as Emilie de Ravin (Claire) is now a series regular.
As a matter of fact, the name of the sixth episode of this show’s second season in “Tallahassee” is something that “Lost” fans should already recognize in some way … just don’t expect Garcia’s new role to be anything like Hurley.
“With the hopes of finding a magical compass that could help her and Mary Margaret get back to Storybrooke, Emma takes a journey with a not-too-trustworthy Captain Hook up a treacherous beanstalk in an attempt to steal the item from a murderous giant (Jorge Garcia, “Lost”). Meanwhile, Emma’s past is revealed to be anything but magical when she meets up with a fellow thief who wants to make an honest woman out of her”
As for some other interesting news pertaining to this episode, it will feature the return of Michael-Raymond James as the mysterious man who we saw at the very beginning of season 2, when a pigeon dropped off a message seemingly suggesting that the curse (or at least something) was broken. In addition to that, we also now know the character’s name: Neal Cassady. Is there another identity hiding underneath the surface here? We’re sure of it. After all, there has be a reason that this man has some ties to Storybrooke, even if they are not clear to anyone else just yet. Eion Bailey is also going to be back here as August W. Booth / Pinocchio.
What do you think about this description, and do you have any idea who Raymond-James’ character actually is at this point? If you don’t want to share any theories and want to watch instead the latest promo featuring Captain Hook, you can do so over at the link here.
