I was half-watching this Once Upon a Time promo, when I suddenly saw the face of Terry O’Quinn (Locke on LOST) appear on the screen. For a second, my heart stopped. Could he possibly be joining the show, I wondered — joining fellow LOST alumni Emilie de Ravin, Alan Dale and Jorge Garcia?
And then, a few moments later, I saw the ending credits and realized this was a combined promo for three shows — OUAT and Revenge and 666 Park Avenue, Terry’s new show, which debuts two hours after the OUAT season premiere.
That aside, I think this may be the best promo I’ve seen for OUAT. It has a bit of a surrealistic tinge, which reminds me of some of my favorite creative LOST promos, especially this one.
