There are five characters who are suppose to return. They are Baelfire, Belle, Graham / Huntsman, Maleficent and Kathyrn / Abigail. It is not likely Graham is returning as Graham; he died in front of Emma. He will be returning as the Huntsman because there is more to tell about that part of the Snow story. Baefire and Belle are returning because there are more to be said about the two in reference to Rumple. Maleficent….ditto. the return is in my opinion the return of Kathryn / Abigail because everyone is focusing on every single character but Kathryn/ Abigail. It is obvious by seeing the end of Stableboy. I was shocked to see Kathryn in the alley was anyone else? I knew she was not dead. One because there is no dea body. Two who gives a darn what the DNA result said. Did Emma perform the test herself???? Is she a medical expert???? Graham survived about 5 episodes without a heart before dying…..does anyone remember when as the Huntsman when she rips out his heart and tells her guards to bring him in her bedchamber and in Storybrooke what does she do when she goes into the Heart Chamber? She takes out who’s heart?……Graham’s / The Huntsman’s and what does she do to it?….. squeezes it, it…and he dies. This past arc was about Kathryn’s disappearence and Snow being the suspect, blah blah blah. There is really not too much focused on August, Bae or Belle but yet everyone is focused on them and not the “dead woman” or rather not so dead woman but possibly alive and possibly now heartless woman.
