On Once Upon a Time, we’ve met plenty of famous fairy tale characters, but there’s one who we’ve been waiting on for two seasons: Peter Pan.
However, we may not have to wait much longer. In addition to the two-part, Neverland-themed finale kicking off next week, star Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White) made a big reveal about the boy who never grew up.
During an appearance on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson on April 18, Ginnifer chatted candidly about her childhood, the show, and the effects of the curse in Storybrooke before she and the host moved on to a bigger subject. Turns out that Peter Pan is none other than Craig himself! Well… at least that’s who he thinks he is.
Since Ginny described the curse a “huge chunk of time in which we lived in Groundhog Day,” he asked her to explain a fairy tale persona to him, as if he had been cursed. He picked Peter Pan, and she mostly ended up giggling her responses.
While this isn’t exactly the reveal we were hoping for, she did divulge some intel about the curse. When they showed a clip of her getting her crown back on her birthday, she couldn’t explain why Johanna had it for so long!
“It was, uh… you know what? I have no idea what happened to it, but it reappears!” she admits, which Craig notes is “kind of creepy.” She explains, “Because we were cursed into forgetting who we were, we can kind of not have to fill in a big chunk of time with what happened.”
In turn, the writers can keep us fooled and keep some plot holes, too. Sigh, but that’s why we love it so much… right? Check out the video of Ginnifer’s interview — including her calling the 5’7” dwarves on set “Tom Cruise-size actors” — and then hit the comments with your Neverland thoughts!
Once Upon a Time Season 2 finale is airing soon, but there is still no new episode this week. Fans are combing entertainment sites for finale spoilers this early because OUAT has finished filming. There are only four more episodes left to air this season. Could it be true that Baelfire aka Neal is also Peter Pan, and he will be taking Snow White to a “new land” in the upcoming finale?
In a recent Facebook post by OUAT actress Jennifer Morrison, she teases that Ginnifer Goodwin will have a scene aboard Captain Hook’s ship, the Jolly Roger. Morrison and Goodwin play the daughter and fairy tale mom roles of Emma Swan and Snow White/Mary Margaret, respectively.
Many fans assume the Facebook photo only means that Snow White is headed to Peter Pan’s Neverland. This is because the titles of the last two episodes of OUAT Season 2 give major clues: “Second Star to the Right” and “And Straight on ‘Til Morning.” (In Walt Disney’s 1953 Peter Pan film, Peter’s directions to Neverland states: “second star to the right, and straight on till morning.” In J.M. Barrie’s original tale, however, the phrase lacked the word “star.”)
We speculate on who could be manning the ship. It couldn’t be Captain Hook because he has no reason to help the family members of Rumplestiltskin. And we know that the last man to sail Hook’s ship is Baelfire aka Neal. That Neal could take control of the famous ship has two implications: One, Baelfire has been to Never Land. Two, Baelfire could be Peter Pan himself. Connect that to the fact that OUAT’s Hook calls Neal’s dad the “Crocodile,” and it all fits.
So what does Snow White want in Never Land? Could she be in a journey to redemption – for the elimination of darkness in her heart? It makes sense to assume that Prince Charming goes on the journey with her. Perhaps Emma Swan and Henry Miller, too. Or is the family looking for Henry, who we know, will be kidnapped in the season finale.
There are many possibilities, and a OUAT viewer’s imagination is easily filled to the brim. We know that Aurora, Philip and Mulan will re-appear towards the finale. We also found out that they have a connection to Baelfire. And then there’s the bad couple team of Greg Mendel and Tamara. How does the Evil Queen figure in all these developments?
The OUAT Season 2 finale spoilers and teasers are keeping the fans restless. The next OUAT episode won’t air until Apr. 21. This episode, called “Lacey,” centers on Belle and her Storybrooke alter-ego, racy Lacey.
“Once Upon A Time” will air an all-new episode on Channel 15 tomorrow night. On Friday, Jan. 11, Spoilers Guide shared a new interview with Ginnifer Goodwin. Check out the previously released photos for this week’s episode here and here. If you missed any of the previously released photos or spoilers for this series, go here.
Season two of this series has changed things completely. The curse was broken, and magic was brought to the town by Mr. Gold. In more recent episodes, Cora and Hook arrived in town, and this will also change things. Goodwin, the actress behind Snow White on the series, spoke both about the arrival of Cora and the impact magic has on the series in this new interview. She said the following about Cora:
“Cora is really our biggest magical threat. With her, anything really goes. She takes no prisoners and nothing is sacred. Love is meaningless. It is scary having her there.”
As for magic and the town, Gold will be able to cross the town line with the help of a potion on the next episode. Goodwin talked about how magic is being handled in the town. She said the following:
“We know that magic has come to Storybrooke. Magic is completely different in Storybrooke than it is in fairy tale land, so we don’t know how to speak the language of Storybrooke magic yet. We also don’t know what happens passed the town line because we’ve never been able to go passed the town line. We’re not sure what the effects of our world would have on the rest of Maine, and we don’t know what effect it would have on outsiders. This is something we’ll be addressing immediately.”
An outsider will arrive in town during this episode. The outsider will be played by Ethan Embry, but not much is known about his character or why he will come to the town. Fans are buzzing about this series on social media. One fan said the following on Twitter recently:
“Two days ’till #Rumbelle and of course… more Regina. Yay! #OnceUponATime
Role: Mary Margaret and Snow White Status: Awaiting Season 2 Premiere
Centers on a woman with a troubled past who is drawn into a small town in Maine where the magic and mystery of Fairy Tales just may be real.
