On Sunday night, ABC will be showing the American Music Awards instead of Once Upon a Time, so the next episode will be on November 27.
That next episode, That Small Still Voice, was written by Jane Espenson, who is best known as a writer on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Although this is the first OUAT episode where she is listed as a writer, she is credited as a consulting producer on The Price of Gold, Snow Falls, and The Thing You Love Most.
Paul Edwards directed the episode. He was a camera operator on eight episodes of LOST in Seasons One and Two, and he directed ten episodes of LOST in Seasons Two through Six. The Small Still Voice will be his Once Upon a Time debut.
