Now that we’ve met the man/boy behind the shadow, find out what he’s got up his sleeve!
Once Upon A Time came back in a big way Sept. 29, as Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and her merry band of rescuers finally reached Neverland on the third season premiere. Following the episode’s final-moment twist — that Henry’s (Jared Gilmore) new travel companion is actually Peter Pan, the very villain he’s been trying to escape — HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site TVLine spoke with executive producer Eddy Kitsis about where season three will go from here.
Peter Pan’s ‘Twisted’ Plans For Henry
For starters, what we saw from Pan (Robbie Kay) on the season premiere was merely a taste of the “twisted” behavior we can expect to see in the coming weeks. He may look like an innocent 15-year-old boy, but as Eddy notes, he’s not to be taken lightly.
“He has that wisdom, but he’s also got the spunk of that kid who’s still going to taunt you in the locker room,” Eddy explains.
Fans will really start to understand Pan’s intentions on the Oct. 6 episode.

As for the sexual tension between Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and Emma, which I couldn’t help but note in my recap, it sounds like it’ll remain just tension for the time being.
“Right now, Emma is focused on getting Henry,” Eddy tells the site. “She’s not someone who lets her walls down; her heart’s been broken too many times to be worried about ‘dating’ right now.”
That said, Neal will reunite with Emma “come hell or high water,” so at least we can expect some romance between Emma and her M.I.A. baby daddy. Eddy notes that the season’s third episode introduces a “wrinkle” in that couple’s story.
