With only sixty days before the much-awaited season four premier, we have an explosion of information about what’s in store for us in the next season of Once Upon a Time from the recently concluded San Diego Comic Con.


Spoiler-Free SDCC 2014 Information

So what’s exactly the difference between true love and soul mate? Kitsis and Horrowitz both say that true love is when you truly love somebody, while a soul mate is the idea that there’s only one for you, but knowing the show, happy endings aren’t what they expect so even though you love somebody, if it doesn’t work out it’s okay to love again. The way it was worded, some fans are wondering which of the two is more important. It was interesting how they finally put the difference between the two. Surely, we’re going to get a bigger expansion of what these two are in the upcoming season.

Jared S. Gilmore, who plays Henry, said he loved portraying Pan even for a change even for just a while. Robbie Kay, meanwhile, the actor who played Pan, is currently nominated for Choice TV Villain in the 2014 Teen Choice Awards. The show is also nominated for three other categories — Choice TV Show: Fantasy/Sci-Fi, Josh Dallas for Choice TV Actor: Fantasy/Sci-Fi, and Ginnifer Goodwin for Choice TV Actress: Fantasy/Sci-Fi, respectively.

When asked why Rumple lied to Belle just as they are about to take on a new journey together, Robert Carlyle said that he considered Rumple an addict (to magic and power). Despite the fact that he really do love Belle, Rumple is still struggling to let go of his bad habits.

Jennifer Morrison, on the other hand, said that Emma wants to really try to keep Regina from turning back in her dark ways, and that she’s determined to try to keep her in a good place. But now that Regina’s second chance at love was taken away yet again, will it revert her back to being the Evil Queen again? Or is she going to be a little bit more understanding and know that it wasn’t Emma’s intention to ruin her happy ending?

Colin O’Donoghue, who plays Hook, was also in the panel and said that he would have given up anything for Baelfire, showing a completely different side of Hook from what we have seen before. He also shared that Hook’s coat weighed 50lbs.

Yvette Nicole Brown, who was the moderator of the panel and the voice of real Ursula, asked whether we’re going to see Neal again in the future episode. Kitsis and Horrowitz said that Neal will always live in our flashbacks. They also added that while characters do can come and go in the show, death may not be the last time you see someone.

So how would Frozen’s story arc fair in Storybrooke? Going into season four, it seems that some of the fans are either very excited about it or still on the fence about the Frozen twist that happened at the end of the third season.

Season four is set to premier on September 28 both in the United States and Canada. Like the third season, the fourth season will also be split in two 11 seasons.

    A few things to add to the conversation, 1. Anna’s hair went back to normal, best view is watching her when she becomes unfrozen.
    2. Unfortunately Baby Oliver will not be playing the role of Prince Neil.
    3. I got the impression from the actors that Emma and Regina will not be in as much conflict as we may think. Regina understands that it was a mistake and is working in stating good.
    4. There is suppose to be some funny stuff with Robin Hood trying to fix this relationship mess between Marian and Regina. Someone made a joke about OUAT goes Big Love. But they idea is that Robin Hood gets himself into a little trouble with trying to keep the peace within two relationships.
    5. The writers mentioned the difference between True Love and Soul Mates but never said if you can have both at the same time or if it was on or another. Do you think you there can be True Love and Soul Mates or is it limited to one or the other?

    They should make a LET IT GO sequence played by the characters of the OUAT for promotions… I think thats perfect.
