Once Upon a Time’s much-buzzed-about season four premiere is just weeks away and ABC is finally giving fans a better glimpse at to what lays in store for Storybrooke and its fairy tale inhabitants.
As viewers of the show already know, the upcoming season is set to feature a (now highly anticipated) Frozen-themed storyline, featuring the Disney flick’s beloved characters, Elsa (to be played by Georgina Haig) and Anna (played by newcomer Elizabeth Lail). Although showrunners Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz did confirm that Elsa would not have a love interest in the upcoming season and also cast several other Frozen characters, not many other details surrounding the story arc have been released.
But that’s not the only plotline that’s been kept under wraps. Fans have also been left in the dark about what to expect for favorite returning characters as well — until now. ABC has just released a new, extended synopsis about the upcoming season that finally provides some juicy insights into both the new Frozen storyline and the original Storybrooke characters.
One of the biggest lingering questions fans were left with at the end of last season was: will Emma and Hooke be together at last? According to the details released by the network, it seems romance is still blossoming between them. However, it’s not exactly smooth sailing, as they are “two damaged people” who have problems with commitment.
Meanwhile, Emma’s parents, Mary Margaret and David, are looking forward to spending more time with their new baby, Prince Neal. But the experience is tainted by the guilt they still feel over not being able to provide the same kind of childhood for Emma, who was sent out of their fairy tale land and into the real world in order to escape the curse cast by Regina the Evil Queen.
