HollywoodLife.com got an early look at Sunday’s can’t-miss premiere of ‘Once Upon A Time.’
There’s so much to love about the Sept. 30 season premiere of Once Upon A Time, I almost don’t even know where to begin. The twists are more shocking, the special effects are more impressive, and the drama is bigger than anything we saw in season one. From Regina’s (Lana Parrilla) surprising new persona to the ending you’ll never see coming, HollywoodLife.com has five mini spoilers to tide you over until Sunday’s game-changing episode.
Ready? Here we go!
1. The Charmings’ magical reunion: The first few minutes of the premiere are devoted to the long overdue reunion of Charming (Josh Dallas), Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin), Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Henry (Jared Gilmore) — you know, now that everybody know who they really are. Unfortunately, not all goes as smoothly as Snow would like.
2. A new love triangle is born: Once Upon A Time has never been afraid to rewrite certain aspects of classic fairy tales, and that’s never been more true than on the season premiere. Let’s just say there’s some unexpected romantic drama bubbling between characters blended from very different worlds.
3. Julian freakin’ Morris: Get excited, Pretty Little Liars fans! Everybody’s favorite inappropriate doc (Julian Morris) gets tons of screen time as Aurora’s prince Phillip — and he has a lot more in common with Regina than you might expect.
4. A whole new Regina: Be it political or magical, Regina has never been short on power — until now. The premiere features a vulnerable, dethroned Regina, and I think viewers will be surprised to realize just how much they care about her.
5. Shockingly ever after: If you thought the ending of last season’s finale — magic returning to Storybrooke — was a game changer, the final few minutes of Sunday’s premiere will probably blow your mind. Not only are all the rules completely thrown out the window, but a whole new chapter begins, and the possibilities are endless.
OK, that’s all I can say without ABC sending a huntsman to kill me. Drop me a comment with your thoughts on the upcoming season premiere: What are you most excited to see?
