Once Upon A Time is gearing up for a tremendous close to it's sophomore season and there are spoilers galore for the 'freight train' that will drive us right into season 3. Kitsis and Horowitz have some Mad Hatter tease, major news on the reignited feud between Regina and Snow and some intriguing season finale scoop!
I’m so glad to hear that OUAT isn’t planning on recasting the Mad Hatter. But anything else you can report about the spin-off possibilities?
While talk of a possible spin-off was definitely “premature,” Adam Horowitz and Eddie Kitsis told me at PaleyFest that they might do some test footage at the end of the year. “But the idea is not a spin-off in the traditional sense — another five-year, 22-episode series,” says Kitsis. “It’s much more in the vein of an American Horror Story, with a beginning, middle, and end.”
What's next for the reignited Snow and Regina feud.
It reach a full boil after this week, “the gloves are going to come off,” says Horowitz. “It’s not going to be pretty for a little while. … It’s just a freight train from here on out.”
Wrapping up the season 2 finale with one word: Game-changer.
“It’s up to the audience how they’re going to take it,” Horowitz said. “But we’re really excited as storytellers for how we leave this season.” Kitsis adds that the theme of this season has always been the price of magic, and in the finale “we’ll see that get paid … whether that’s death or something worse.”
