Ali Once Upon A Time Comments Off on Once Upon a Time Bosses on How Lost Influenced Their Fairytale World

Executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis spoke with TV Guide about Once Upon a Time and where the show is headed.

“There’s a curse that needs to be broken, and these characters have had their happy endings ripped from them. Emma [Jennifer Morrison] comes in there trying to help them find their happy endings. Ultimately, the last happy ending is for Emma.”

Before that can happen, Emma, who also just happens to be the daughter of Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) and Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), must truly become the hero of the story — a quest the writers find exciting because she was never part of the fairytale canon. “Emma is essentially a new fairytale character,” Kitsis notes. “Emma’s journey is just beginning and it hasn’t been written yet.”

“We’ve heard people discussing: Will [Emma] break the curse? How will she break the curse? When will she break the curse?” Horowitz says. “The curse, in many ways, is the tip of the iceberg. Even if you do know who you are, that doesn’t mean everything immediately comes back to you and you get your happy ending.” Adds Kitsis, “In fact, in a lot of ways, it might just make it worse.”

Unfortunately, this means Prince Charming and Snow White have a long way to go before their tale becomes the love story we know it to be. “Anytime you have a love story on a TV show, it’s always hard to keep them apart,” Kitsis notes. “In fairytale land, we understand that these two belong together. Now, in Storybrooke, these two are separated by [David’s] wife, so they can’t be together. You get to really see that the curse makes good on its promise, which is that it will rip everything you love from your life.”

Getting her parents the happy ending they deserve will be the greatest challenge for Emma. Though she’s gone toe-to-toe with Storybrooke’s mayor Regina, who adopted Henry (Jared Gilmore), the son Emma gave up for adoption 10 years ago, she’ll have to face the ultimate antagonist of the story: Regina’s fairytale counterpart, The Evil Queen. “The Evil Queen is not somebody whose bad side you want to get on, but if anyone can take her on, it’s Emma,” Kitsis says.
