ABC will wrap it's fantastical drama, Once Upon A Time, May 11th, but will start it's sweeps run April 27th. Co-creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz promise that episode will 'answer an enormous amount of questions."
Among those questions: Who cast the new curse and why? And what else is Hook hiding about his remembered year? And though the Storybrooke heroes seem to have the Wicked Witch's time-traveling agenda figured out, "There's an additional surprise element to what's coming," says cocreator Adam Horowitz. "It becomes more than it appeared at first blush." On May 4, the episode "Kansas" serves up more Oz-based mythology (and iconography) as well as introduces us to the show's take on Dorothy. All of that, Kitsis says, "will open the door to a new adventure that leads to the two-hour finale."

Someone you thought you'd seen the last of puts in one more appearance, and soon.
The season 3 finale will be a 2 hour event, starting with "Snow Drifts" and concluding with There's No Place Like Home". Kitsis promises no oridinary 2 hour finale, but a seemless movie quality installment.
Season Finale ~ May 11th
"It was written as a two-hour movie, and it will not only complete the arc of this season, but it will absolutely set up next season" - akin to how last May, the gang set course for Neverland. "We're not getting on a boat this time," Horowitz quips, "but seeds for Season 4 are planted." As is a ring on someone's finger. "There will be a wedding," Kitsis affirms, adding... well, absolutely nothing :/
About That Wedding
The two-hour finale will feature a fairy tale wedding, though it's unclear exactly who will be making it down the aisle, especially with Zelena willing to do anything to get her vengeance on her half-sister Regina. We'll also learn why Zelena has been targeting Snow White's baby, who's expected to arrive this spring. And unfortunately, there is still more death on the way! "Hearts will be broken," executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz tease. "Hearts will be healed. There will be surprise returns and new arrivals."
