Once Upon a Time Cast on Season 6's 'Pure Evil' Queen, Charming's Big Surprise and Belle's 'New Perspective'

All told, Season 6 of ABC’s Once Upon a Time is shaping up to be an “introspective” one for the Storybrooke heroes, Jennifer Morrison told Michael Ausiello at TVLine’s Comic-Con studio presented by ZTE.

When last we tuned in, Dr. Jekyll’s sinister half, Mr. Hyde, had put down roots in Storybrooke, along with other denizens of the Land of Untold Stories. Regina meanwhile split apart from and seemingly dispatched with her dark side, wholly unaware that the Evil Queen is in fact alive and well and looking to make mayhem.

Weighing in on that “awesome” twist, Lana Parrilla says it has been “different but a lot of fun” to tackle dual roles. But it’s the return of the Evil Queen that will prompt, for example, Prince Charming to look inward and discover that some long-held truths perhaps are not so true.

Also in the video Q&A, Emilie de Ravin weighs in on Belle’s new attitude (as well as the fact that one half of Rumbelle always seems to be KO’d!); Morrison ponders the course of “true love” for Emma and Hook; Rebecca Mader teases a sisterly twist; and Jared Gilmore sees many Pokemon GO dates in Henry and Violet’s future.

Once Upon a Time Season 6 premieres Sunday, Sept. 25 at 8/7c.
