Once Upon a Time Dorothy

Once Upon a Time Casts 'Warrior' Dorothy, to Battle Wicked Witch in Oz

Chicago Fire alum Teri Reeves is set to heat things up in Once Upon a Time‘s Oz.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Reeves has landed the recurring role of Kansas native Dorothy Gale, who since the last time we saw her has grown up to be a “brave warrior for good.”

Having returned home to the Heartland at the end of Season 3’s Zelena-centric “Kansas” episode (and then played by Matreya Scarrwener), Dorothy returns to Oz to save the magical city from the most wicked of witches. But to do so, she will have to forge new friendships, unlocking a strength she has never had before.

In addition to her Season 1 Chicago Fire run (as Casey’s ill-fated fiancée), Reeves’ TV credits include episodes of Castle, Scandal, NCIS and Three Rivers.

ABC’s Once Upon a Time resumes Season 5 on March 6 with Episode 12; Reeves debuts in Episode 16.

    Is there any chance that we will see what’s happening in Storybrooke with Belle & the rest of the town while the others are in the Underworld?

  2. Raul J says:

    This may be just Toto much.

    • Me says:

      Yes 3 different lands plus potentially the enchanted forest? I agree it might be too ambitious. Though it might have us saying there is no place like home when the story goes back to storybrook.

      • Gail says:

        Per the preview the Underworld will look like a wrecked Storybrooke so really just two lands. Also Dorothy and all may end up in Storybrooke when Zelena makes her way back.
        Its just a guess but that is probably when you will see Belle and all. At the winter finale there were no threads hanging in Storybrooke so I don’t think they will immediately go back there unless Rumple can communicate with Belle from the Underworld. As he doesn’t want her to know he is the Dark One again he would have to come up with a good excuse to explain how he could do that.

    Can we please add the Tin man, Scarecrow and Lion?

    • t.w.123 says:

      Per the article, Dorothy will have to “she will have to forge new friendships, unlocking a strength she has never had before”…. So I’m going with a yes on Tin Man, Scarecrow, and Lion.

      • taran63 says:

        Except this is Once, so the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion will probably be existing Storybrooke characters. I’m just trying to think of who.

        • t.w.123 says:

          True! I’m thinking Ruby for the Lion? And maybe Mulan for the Tin Man (but maybe not- that’s a pretty bad match). Mulan and Ruby have some unfinished business with Zelena and were last seen going off on an adventure on their own. They could easily end up in Oz and hook up with Dorothy, pulling those two plot points together.

          • Petter says:

            They did it in 3b. David lost his bravery (lion), Regina her heart (Tinman) and Rumple lost his brain (scarecrow). Zelena needed those items for the spell. Can’t see them repeating that.

    I have said it once and I will say it again. They are setting us up for a Once Upon A Time in Oz spin-off.

    Why on earth would they throw this boring storyline in? Don’t they have enough to tell already?
