As TVLine previously reported, Leopold, who debuts in Episode 18’s Enchanted Forest flashbacks, is grounded, humble and not afraid to open his heart, coveting more from marriage than just a political arrangement. That same episode marks the return of Eva Bourne as Young Eva and Rose McGowan as Young Cora (another TVLine scoop, by the bye).

    It’s Sikowitz!

  2. xav says:

    Wow, they’re really going for the ‘creepy’ angle with Leopold, aren’t they?

  3. Stormy says:

    More flashbacks for OUAT. Swell.

  4. ANYTHING that puts Strathairn back on my screen is most welcome.

  5. tp says:

    I really believe Nick Cannon needs to let go of the Drumline thing. Was it really that successful to warrant a tv show?

  6. lrdslvrhnd says:

    I still can’t look at the title of “Agent X” without thinking it’s about a Marvel mutant. Adding one of the leads of “Mutant X” *and* giving him the last name of the main antagonist on the show really REALLY doesn’t help with that lol (Still, yay for John Shea joining!)

  7. GingerSnap says:

    38 days until the return of OUAT – sigh.

  8. Colleen says:

    Woo! I am really glad to see David Strathairn finding work. He is such a great actor. And, that’s Oscar-nominee David Strathairn to you, TVLine! :)

    I guess “young” is used loosely for Leopold. Ha, ha.
