What in the world is Peter Pan trying to accomplish on “Once Upon a Time” season 3? This is the question that is on the mind of everyone moving into Sunday night’s new episode. We’ve now met the character (and even know that Robbie Kay is playing the part), but there is still a question as to what the motivations are. Why is he suddenly on the hunt for “the heart of the truest believer,” and why is it so important to him that he finds them?
For an explanation, we turn to executive producer Adam Horowitz, who explains per E! News that Pan is not necessarily someone who is evil in the purest sense. Instead, he may be motivated by something very specific, and that is something that we will learn a little bit more about as this season progresses:
“What we didn’t want to do was do a villain who just wants world domination and wants to do something terrible. What we wanted was someone who had a really character-based motivation for why belief was important to him and why the truest believer was important to him. That’s the story we’re going to unfurl in these first 11 [episodes].”
There is a Pan origin story coming based on some other past comments from the folks in power at the show, though the unclear part of this is just when it will be. We expect Sunday’s episode to be a little bit more of an explanation of what Neverland is as a world, and there are also some more important characters to meet here, including Tinker Bell and eventually Ariel.
