Oh right! I forgot about the Tink confirmation! So then the little blonde girl (Laine) must be Tink and the Freya must be playing Ariel (because I refuse to believe anything else at this point!)
I am SO ready for Ariel.
The more I’ve thought about it, the more convinced I’ve become that Freya will be Ariel. Though Eddy’s, “Ariel could potentially be a Season Three,” almost throws that off, but he may simply mean that we won’t see her as a mermaid until season 3, even if we see her in human form in season 2. Perhaps?
Anyway, I’ve spent so much time pondering my headcanon for Ariel, (FWIW, I’ve decided that if she has an alternate persona name, it should be Pearl) that I NEED the actual canon STAT to save my sanity.
