Once Upon A Time creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis just dropped a major bombshell when it comes to season 3. The duo spoke with TVLine to reveal that someone, a regular cast member, won’t be around for season 4.
The fantastical series will be killing off a major character during the second batch of 11 episodes (launching March 9), resulting in the exit of a series regular. “The character dies, for real,” Kitsis makes clear — at which point his/her portrayer will, make no mistake, leave the show.
Every series regular cast member is a possibility –except for Robert Carlyle. The EPs have agreed to rule out that one candidate, seeing as Rumplestiltskin is theoretically already “gone” (having sacrificed himself in the name of vanquishing Peter Pan).
I’m still bummed with how the show destroyed Pan’s character but I’m curious where they are going with this. With the addition of the Wicked Witch, could Regina be in danger? My money however, is on Neal. He’s a regular but he’s also kind of a newbie. Fingers crossed Henry is toast.
What do you guys think?
