With the Season 3 opener still a long eight weeks away, series cocreator Adam Horowitz on Saturday morning shared via Twitter a picture of the second episode’s script:

So, who is the titular lost lass? Is the smart money on the recently cast Tinker Bell, who is said to have a “surprising” connection to either Rumple, Regina, Belle, Baelfire, Charming, Snow White or Emma? Is it Bo the Succubus? (OK, probably not.) Shannon Rutherford…?

Of possible note, with a look at the episode’s writers: While Chambliss’ fingerprints are on a variety of Once scripts, Vazquez tends to gravitate toward those featuring backstory for new-ish characters such as Anton the Giant and Tamara.

Once‘s season opener — titled “The Heart of the Truest Believer” — airs Sunday, Sept. 29, so expect the Episode 2 mystery solved by Oct. 6.

  • Best guess Tinker or Ariel. But the OUAT writers always surprise us. Can’t wait for S3! *_*

    • What if Tinkerbell is Charmings sister? His character finally could get some development.

  • Yeah I would guess its Tinkerbell, from the Comic-Con teaser it looked like Ariel might be in Storybrooke since she was interacting with Grumpy, although they could supprise us with Tigerlily.

    • I believe it has since been reported that Ariel will in fact not be in Storybrooke but one of the other realms.

      • Yeah, you can’t go by the tease from Comic Con. The one they had last year was of Hook breaking into Gold’s pawn shop to take back his hook, but the first place we saw him was in the Enchanted Forest with Snow, Emma, Aurora, and Mulan.

        • If the Comic-Con videos were an indication of what’s to come, then that Good Morning Storybrooke video insinuates that Amy Acker will be back as Nova/Astrid, which, even though it would make my day, seems unlikely as she was made a regular on Person of Interest…

          • That wasn’t made for Comic Con, but the Season 2 DVDs. It’s one of the extras. They just showed it at Comic Con.

    • Lol that is awesome

  • I can see Tinkerbell but also maybe Emma. Emma was in foster care and maybe even related to the story of Peter Pan and that of the Lost Boys.

  • lol @ shannon rutherford…. still, I would love to have Maggie Grace on a weekly basis back on TV. Shannon was so underrated during ‘Lost’. Someone should give this girl a role on a TV show asap!

    • She annoyed the heck outta me at first, but as her character grew, I liked her more and more and was sad to see her go.

  • yeah…not a fan of Vanquez and that awful killing August but keeping Pinocchio.

  • Since we’re in the realm of Neverland, could it possibly be Wendy?

    Comment by Joann – August 5, 2013 11:48 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Wouldn’t it make more sense for Tinker Bell to be related to the Blue Fairy? I mean, they are both fairies, are they not?

    Comment by JLC – August 5, 2013 12:29 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think Wendy, or Tamara. I’m not buying her backstory…

    The episode after this one is called “quite a common fairy” and that’s almost for sure the delightfully rude Tinkerbell.
