Heroes and Villains, the best new show of the year?!
Sorry all other freshman shows, but Once Upon a Time just became an entirely new show and we're obsessed with it. In the ABC fantasy hit's two-hour season finale, "Operation Mongoose," the author turns the tables on our heroes and villains, and nothing will ever be the same. Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) becomes evil! Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) becomes a knight in shining armor! Pigs fly! OK, that last part is a lie, but you get the idea. But will the season four finale keep with the shows trend of introducing a new world and/or iconic Disney character (Hi, Frozen's Elsa!) in the final moments?
"This one is one of our favorite ones. It feels like a movie," co-creator Eddy Kitsis previews. "We can tell you bringing to a new world and stuff we've never done before on the show. In years past, we saw Elsa, and we saw were going to Neverland, this is going to be much more like season one, where we said magic is coming and it was a condition."
Co-creator Adam Horowitz adds, "This is going to end with a condition with a character."
And we can tell you that the condition is freakin' heartbreaking and awesome and epic, and the perfect set-up for season five.
But before we get to the end, let's start where all good stories do: the beginning. We asked for your burning questions about the OUAT finale on Twitter, and now, we're dishing out scoop...without spoilng any major moments, of course.
higgins_rose: is Ouat gunna end on a huge cliffhanger and will we see a lot of captainswan???
Yes. Come on, it's a OUAT finale. Are you new?! And hell yes, this is one of our favorite Hook and Emma episodes, and we'll also get to see a new first in their relationship.
alscales: could you just tell me everything? Or any teases on Emma's role in the AU would be fantastic!
We don't want to spoil everything, but we'll say that you won't find out Emma' role until the end of the first hour. And you'll definitely get chills.
Yup. There's one that has to do with a flask.
ouatfandomblog: are there any good scenes between Hook & Charming?
Define good. There are a few, and one in particular that will leave you speechless. And wanting to punch of them. Like, really, really hard.
heyjedikitty: Are we ever going to find out why Wil left Wonderland and Ana ? Or is my understanding of the timeline messed up ?
Sorry, but Will isn't even in the finale.
gfa_Marie: Any good
#rumbelle that's not in the AU but in Storybrooke with the real Belle and Gold?
We think fans will be satisfied by the couple's storylines in both universes.
nsandoval_: Whats Prince Charmings relation to dark snow white when they turn evil
The terms lap dog and whipping boy come to mind. also, Dark Snow White is deliciously fun, and you can tell Ginnifer Goodwin was having a blast.
fluffyrumple: rumbellers are thinking of quitting the show. Any good news in order to make us stay?
That makes our eyes want to rain. But we humbly suggest you stay. Trust. Keep calm and Rumpbelle-ship on.
Angeliiiiique: Does Robin and Regina have a good amount of screentime together? Any significant scenes between them?
Yep. And in one scene, he makes her quite the interesting offer.
CapSwanOUAT: we've seen pics of Emma and Regina apparently working together in the forest...is there anything about that you can tell us?
We can tell you that the dynamic between these two women throughout the second hour is probably our favorite thing about the finale. It's just so well-done and shows how far they've come this season and from the beginning of the series.
Once Upon a Time's two-hour finale airs Sunday, May 10 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
