“IGN: Are these the same versions of Regina and Hook that we know from our story book, or are they from other story books?
Horowitz: These are all versions of the characters we’ve already seen on the show. We’re not introducing a new version of anyone.”
Except for the new versions of Alice and Cinderella and Co.? They really need to Word things better.
IGN: Are you looking to have new love interests for characters like Hook and Regina?
Horowitz: What I’ll say is this: romance is a huge part of the show, but for those characters in particular, they’re dealing with other things right now. For Regina, for example, she’s never been someone who’s been defined by finding a romantic partner. She’s about so much more, and really much more important is the relationship with her son.
Kitsis: And I think you’re going to find with Hook there’s also a pressing goal ahead of him. I would never say never — and I don’t want to say yes … but the truth of the matter is, right now, they have other things going on in the first half of this season. Again, it is Once Upon a Time and romance is going to be on the show, especially with Henry and Cinderella, who we’re modeling after [Charming and Snow].
Yeah, I’m excited for this. Seeing our veterans in non-romantic storylines would be refreshing.
