Once Upon a Time Spoilers: Who's Coming? Who's Awakening? Who's Emma Swan?

by at . Comments

Once Upon a Time debuted on ABC last night, taking viewers into the fairy tale-based world of Storybrooke, Maine. Read our review of the high-concept series NOW.

Where does the unique show go from here? What other well-known characters will fans soon meet? Executive producer Steve Pearlman offered up a few spoilers and teasers in a recent interview with EW, excerpts from which are below...

Look for equal time to be spent in both universes most week, with the first act typically dedicated to fairy tale characters.

Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, among others, are on the way. Pearlman says Snow, Charming and Emma may be considered the main players, but the series wants to "branch out" and tell many stories at once.

The November 6 installment will serve a a prequel to the premiere.

Prince Charming's real-world counterpart will soon be awakened from his comatose state.

Jennifer Morrison says other folks in town will shed light on Emma: "She ends up revealing parts of herself through their stories. She kind of has a slower, steadier revelation of who she is, whereas some of the other characters will have a whole episode that’s their flashback.”

As teased in the promo above for next Sunday's episode, viewers will soon learn a lot more about the Evil Queen and her ties to Snow White.

Emma isn't a fairy tale character graham dies a hot stranger guy comes in mirrors in love with Regina (mirror is sydney the guy who runs the paper) ruby is red and Emma is the daughter of snow white and prince charming regina knows about the curse I think mr gold does to(rumplestiltskin) because he said Regina is the "queen" of the castle and he also knows all he has to do to get Regina to obey him is say please. Great show will say more after I watch new episodes.

Read the story "Swan Lake" and you will discover who Emma is.

Emma was sent away from the Fairy Tale Land when she was a baby; remember her father put her in the wardrobe? How could she be anybody from the Fair tale land; as she was only a baby and then sent to the real world. Make sense?

I feel confident that Emma Swan is Alice in Wonderland.

I think emma is the blue fairy from pinnoccio. She always knows when someone is lying. It kind of fits, especially if henry is pinnoccio.

Well I really think Emma isn't for Little Red Riding Hood because Ruby is, But there might be a chance Emma is sleeping beauty.
- Haha Once I Saw The Previews Of The Frist Episode I Had To Watch It And Now I Deeply In Love With It :) Forever Once Upon A Time! #TeamSnowWhitePrinceJames

I was thinking maybe Emma could be goldie locks? in one of the episodes when Graham offers her a donut she says he is lucky he bought a "bear" claw? Goldie locks is a bit of a loner. But I am still seeing how that would connect with her being able to tell if someone is telling the truth and her like finding people.
i am really enjoying the show....but sad that Graham is gone! bummer!

I believe Emma is sleeping beauty because in the original version of the tale Sleeping Beauty was raped by a married prince. Emma could have been raped at some point and thus we have Henry. However, in the story there were two children born. A son and a daughter. Dawn and Day or Aurora and Jour (? not sure on the spelling). When Emma kissed the huntsman he began to "wake up" to who he really was. Like any new mom I believe she kissed Henry before she gave him up for adoption . . . so he never went under the spell of the witch and was able to find Emma. Sounds to me that Emma is going to have to go around kissing everyone to wake them up. Should be rather funny.

I think Emma might be Alice from Alice in Wonderland. In episode 1, when Emma drives her car into the sign, the book flips to page and pauses for a moment on a page that looks like the caterpillar from Alice and Wonderland and then turns to a page about Snow White. In episode 2 or 3, the evil queen is told that Emma had a troubled child hood. Alice was always looking for the white rabbit...Emma is good at finding people. This is just a speculation.

Margaret is Snow White
David Noland is Prince James
Emma is Snow White and Prince James baby daughter
Henry is a boy i think for sure is Emma's son
Regina is the Evil Queen
Mr. Gold is Rumpelstiltskin
The waitress is Little Red Riding Hood
The Sheriff is maybe the Huntsman
Katherine is Prince James old wife before Snow White
The man with glasses is Jiminy Cricket

True love isn't easy but it must be fought for because once you find it, it can never be replaced.

Prince Charming

This could be the worst idea you've ever had and you hired the Wicked Witch as your nanny.
