Once: Two Big Reveals


Jamie Dornan’s return to Once Upon a Time is shrouded in secrecy, but one thing creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis will share: The Huntsman’s appearance in March won’t mirror his previous outing (we last saw him in fairy-tale land). ”It’s always important for us to not repeat ourselves,” says Horowitz, and Kitsis adds that the episode will contain ”an exciting reveal” about the Huntsman. And speaking of big moments, expect one toward the end of the season as Emma’s (Jennifer Morrison) ”fairy-tale heritage…is going to play a larger role,” shares Horowitz.

The Following: Who Is No. 2?

Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) had help organizing his cult while incarcerated, but from whom? That’s the question that will plague investigator Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon, right) and the rest of the team in future episodes, according to exec producer Kevin Williamson. ”As [with] any great cult, there’s always a number two,” he teases. While that person’s identity will not be revealed ”for a while,” look for the Feb. 25 episode to be ”a game changer” in the case of Joe’s kidnapped son, Joey Matthews (Kyle Catlett).

Castle Takes On The Ring

Castle fans, prepare for a horrorific twist. Later this season the show will scare up an episode that nods to cult chiller The Ring. After a woman is murdered, the team finds an eerie tape that Castle (Nathan Fillion, right) believes is haunted. ”After seeing it, he’s convinced he’s going to be the next victim,” explains exec producer Andrew Marlowe, ”and he may not be wrong.”
