‘Once Upon a Time’ season 3 spoilers: The meeting of the worlds

"Once Upon a Time" - CastGoing into “Once Upon a Time” season 3, we understand that there are quite a few reasons for you to have some major anxiety. For one, some of your beloved characters (i.e. Belle and Neal) are separated from the others, and you don’t quite know how or when they will get back. Given that this similar dynamic existed at the start of season 2, it could be a problem for the show if fans start to doubt.

If you are worried, have no fear. In a new interview with TV Guide, executive producer Adam Horowitz does his best to reassure you that while there are some major twists coming in the world of the show, the plan is to have there be common links and stories that tie everything together, and keep everyone engaged in each world:

“Fear not, the characters left behind in Storybrooke are not forgotten and what’s happening to them is important … Hopefully all the story lines will coalesce in a way the audience will enjoy.”

As for how exactly these stories will come together, it will probably require some help from characters new and old. Expect to hear about some new castings coming in the next few weeks, and we know already that in order to help Neal out, both Jamie Chung and Sarah Bolger will likely be returning for at least one episode as Mulan and Sleeping Beauty. Meanwhile, Meghan Ory also hopes to return as Red, even though all three of these characters have jobs elsewhere in the new year.
