On Wednesday, Once Upon a Time creators/executive producers/writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz had a Facebook chat about the show. They showed a clip from the finale and answered questions from fans.
Some of the questions they answered (very slight spoilers):
Q: Whatever happened to Malificent? A: I think you should watch this weekend.
Q: Will we be seeing the Mad Hatter again? A: I would say that he will be making an appearance this weekend.
Q: Will we be seeing any more episodes with Rumple and Belle A: “There is one episode left, so I would be very disappointed as a fan if they didn’t make an appearance in it.”
Q: Is Henry’s father coming into the picture? A: We made a big deal in Episode 9 about how Emma lied about who Henry’s father was, so that is “definitely a mystery we will answer.” That’s important to the show, and we want to get to it — but that’s for the future. We know who the father is — it’s just when we choose to reveal it. It’s finding the right moment in a show to reveal certain things. You want to intrigue the audience, get them interested, and then satisfy them with the answers at the right time. That’s the tricky dance.
Here’s one where the answer really surprised me: Q: Did Mr. Gold know from the beginning, or did he regain his memories when Emma came to town? A: When Emma came to town — when he heard her name, in the Pilot. That’s why he was asking for her name in the jail cell.
I thought he knew all along!
