In related news, we were able to get some additional news from Entertainment Weekly about what Alice will be doing in the new season 7. They revealed the new intel during their latest Spoiler Room chat session.
A fan asked them a question about Alice. They replied by revealing that Rumpelstiltskin will develop a very interesting curiosity in her. He won’t ever really know where she’s going or what she’s up to.
They stated, “Alice is a character in the vein of Rumplestiltskin in that you don’t really quite know what she’s up to, where she’s going or where she’s been. And that’s a fact that Rumple, in particular, will find curious.”
In other news, the producers recently teased what Emma will be doing in her final episode which will be episode number 2 of the season entitled, ” A Pirate’s Life.” They said, “We get to find out what has happened with Emma and Hook since our happy ending we showed last year. We will be getting closure on her story in what we feel is a satisfying way.”
Showrunner,Edward Kitsis confirmed there will be no flashbacks with the Emma plotline stating, “What we’re not doing is a flashback story where we’re seeing stuff prior to or during the previous six seasons. We’re moving forward past the end of season 6 seeing what happened with Emma and Hook and how it relates to the events in Hyperion Heights. It’s an emotional curtain call.”
So, as of right now, it looks like that will be the last we see of Emma. But who knows? Maybe Emma’s portrayer Jennifer Morrison will change her mind in the future and decides she wants to return. It’s reported that she was the one who decided to leave so it’ll be up to her if she returns or not.
