"Once Upon a Time" is back Sunday, April 21 to kick off its string of brand-new episodes leading up to the Season 2 finale. Star Emilie de Ravin teases for Zap2it what viewers can look forward to in "Lacey," when Belle is released from the hospital -- but it's not by Mr. Gold."When Mr. Gold walks in alive, that swells up a lot of emotions, in her actually seeing that he does really want to help and get her discharged," says de Ravin. "Unfortunately, we are intercepted by our lovely, friendly Regina, who is, as per usual, trying to mess up Gold's life."With Regina out for revenge against all those she blames for losing her mother, Belle is an obvious first target -- hit Mr. Gold where it hurts. And she does so by concocting a new persona for everyone's favorite librarian."Now I'm a blank slate, so she gives me a memory of this girl... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/04/once-upon-a-times-emilie-de-ravin-rumpel-and-belle-start-the-guard-dropping-down-between-them-in-lac.html
At the end of the third season of Lost the entire status quo of the series was upset when the audience realized that the flashback featuring a drug-addled and desolate Jack Shephard was in fact a flashforward. The moment was a game changer and the narrative equivalent of a shot of adrenaline for a fantastic series that was beginning to run out of steam as it continued to rely on a storytelling device that had become tedious. Now barreling toward the end of its second season, Once Upon a Time, a series that is Lost‘s successor in spirit, if not always in quality, is standing at a similar crossroads. The writers can either cling to the town of Storybrooke and continue to churn out convoluted reasons for these magical people to stay in a mundane setting for a few more seasons, or they can set them free and give Once the one thing it has been in desperate need of this year: narrative momentum.

Most every actor on ABC's Once Upon A Time gets to play dual versions of their characters — in Storybrooke and in Fairytale Land. But on this Sunday's episode, tilted "Lacey," Emilie de Ravin will take on yet a third persona. With the Evil Queen ( Lana Parrilla ) having filled Belle's head with cursed memories (as she did with all the characters upon their arrivals in Storybrooke), the formerly sweet character is now... http://www.tvguide.com/News/Once-Upon-Time-Emilie-de-Ravin-1064168.aspx?rss=breakingnews
The Evil Queen is expanding her kingdom — into comic books! The Once Upon a Time villainess will headline an upcoming original graphic novel adaptation of the ABC drama, which explores her relationship with the Huntsman. Once Upon a Time: Shadow of the Queen , coming form Marvel Comics on Sept. 4, will directly tie in to the show's continuity. "We wanted to explore some new narrative territory that the show hadn't fully covered yet," says Emily Shaw, the Marvel editor working on the book. "The Huntsman was perfect. Fans love him, he's such a compelling character, but his background is still pretty mysterious. Especially when it comes to his servitude to Regina, the Evil Queen." http://www.tvguide.com/News/Once-Time-Graphic-Novel-1063959.aspx?rss=breakingnews

"Once Upon a Time" creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis are in the process of shaping their mini-spin-off, "Wonderland," the tale of the Lewis Carroll land, pre-"Once"-curse. Now a big piece of the puzzle has been found -- the show's Alice. EW reports that relative unknown Sophie Lowe has been cast in the now-titled project "Once: Wonderland" as the protagonist we all know and love from Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There."Lowe joins Michael Socha, who has been cast as the Knave of Hearts, and Peter Gadiot, who plays Alice's love interest, Cyrus. Kitsis describes the show as not a spin-off in the traditional sense."[It's not] another five-year, 22-episode series. It's much more in the vein of an 'American Horror Story,' with a beginning, middle, and end," says Kitsis.We're intrigued to see how that plays out. We hope the show can get Sebastian Stan back as... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/03/once-upon-a-time-spin-off-wonderland-finds-its-alice.html
