A number of familiar faces will be returning to Once Upon a Time for its final run of episodes.
EW has learned that original stars Jared Gilmore (young Henry Mills), Bev Elliott (Granny), Lee Arenberg (Grumpy), Tony Amendola (Geppetto), and Keegan Connor Tracy (Blue Fairy), along with later additions Joanna Garcia (Ariel), Robbie Kay (Peter Pan), Sean Maguire (Robin Hood), and Victoria Smurfit (Cruella de Vil), are all set to return in one or both of the final two episodes of the series, EW has learned.
As previously announced, Once Upon a Time will end its run after season 7. These won’t be the only actors returning for the last installments, as additional talent is expected to be announced soon. To find out what’s in store for the final episodes, read our interview with executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis here.
More info about the upcoming Once Upon A Time episode , A Taste Of The Heights:
Regina/Roni (Lana Parrilla) and her sister, Zelena/Kelly (Rebecca Madder), will hunt down the person killing witches in the upcoming episode of “Once upon a Time.”
In the episode titled “A Taste of the Heights,” the promo shows Regina extremely worried about the unexpected death of several witches. The first one to perish was the nurse who was taking care of Lucy (Alison Fernandez). After confirming that the child’s father was Henry (Andrew J. West), she keeled over, dead. The nurse was poisoned and the only clue to the culprit’s identity was the black leather gloves he/she was wearing.
Series co-creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis told TVLine that the secret killer storyline is going to be interconnected with the coven and Gothel’s/Eloise’s (Emma Booth) plot. They said, though, that this enigma would be unveiled quite soon. As for the shocking sacrifice of Victoria/Rapunzel (Gabrielle Anwar), the EPs said that the character died an honorable death. Gothel saved Drizella/Ivy (Adelaide Kane) and told her that all she wanted was for her and her sister, Anastacia (Yael Yurman) to be in good terms again.
“[She] originally was trapped in a tower and kind of became this villain, and yet in this moment in the relationship between Ivy and her… she was able to reclaim who she was. And I think that’s always been a message on the show, which is this is not a show where we expect you to be perfect. This is a show where we all say, ‘OK, every day we make mistakes, but it’s how you come back from them.’ So we felt like that was a fitting ending,” Kitsis explained.
Meanwhile, the episode will also see Tiana (Mekia Cox) on the day of her coronation. It will be ruined when she is forced to go to the Bayou after an ugly confrontation with Dr. Facilier (Daniel Francis). Once there, an unexpected encounter will turn her world upside down. It looks like Tiana is finally going to meet her prince.
“Once Upon a Time” season 7 airs Fridays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
In the midseason premiere, young Lucy is unconscious from a mysterious illness with parents Jacinda and Henry sitting by helplessly. But, as fans of OUAT know, there’s always a curse that needs to be broken, and this time is no different—except if ending the curse will kill Henry and not ending the curse will kill Lucy.
Also in the episode, Robin gets closer to Mother Gothel , which could end up being more dangerous than she realizes. Things also come to a head between Victoria and Ivy.
But, back to breaking that curse. Whatever will Regina and Zelena do when it seems someone will have to die no matter what they do?
Will Grumpy and the rest of Once Upon a Time‘s dwarfs finally sing about whistling while they work? Will erstwhile cricket Dr. Archie Hopper let loose with a tune about wishing upon a star?
“Be prepared”, because such melodic mysteries might be addressed during Season 6. TVLine hears that the fantastical, fairy tale-themed ABC series is currently planning a musical episode, to air sometime this spring. And to that end, some cast members are actively brushing up on their vocal skills.
An ABC spokesperson had no comment on TVLine’s story.
Having weaved in characters from Frozen, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and other musical Disney features over the years, talk of Once cuing up a musical episode has always brewed, with series cocreator Eddy Kitsis saying as recently as the 2015 Comic-Con, “It would be great to do a musical episode, [but] I don’t know even know where to begin.”
Well, it would seem that the show bosses figured that one out. Continue reading
