I would completely love to see Rumple and the Ogre wars. Also a lot more of Jefferson, not only because Alice in Wonderland is my favorite fairytale but because Jefferson has so much potential. Also the return of Maleficent, gosh I was a little dissapointed when they started to get rid of the main characters from Sleeping Beauty, first Maleficent then Prince Philip. I heard somewhere that for the pilot they wanted to kill Charming off but then decided not to. I think they did this to Philip just to see how it would be received but no I do not like it. Hope they find a way to bring him back and I do not mean only in flashbacks.
I think Phillip will be rescued, because why would they even have Cora tell Aurora that Phillip’s soul can be saved? Plus, Aurora and Mulan go off to find a way to save him when we last see them. It wouldn’t have been acknowledged at all if this leads nowhere.
