In its first season, ABC's hit fairy-tale series has killed off a fan favorite and dropped more than a few bombshells (wait, Red Riding Hood is also the Big Bad Wolf?). So it should come as no surprise that the finale (airing May 13) promises to be a ''throw-things-at-the-TV kind of hour of television'' — at least according to star Ginnifer Goodwin (left). The actress, who pulls double duty as butt-kicking Snow White and her mild-mannered schoolteacher alter ego Mary Margaret, revealed that before the end, things between Snow and the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla, right) will come to a head when the queen offers her a poisoned apple. Though it's a nod to the iconic fairy-tale scene, it will hardly play out predictably. ''Our situation is quite more complicated,'' says Goodwin, who also hints that she's ''selfishly pleased'' because the last few episodes focus heavily on the relationship between Snow and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) and their Storybrooke, Maine, counterparts. We have a feeling the queen will not be pleased. —Nuzhat Naoreen
EW asked shutter-happy star Ginnifer Goodwin to take some behind-the-scenes photos of her castmates during the final days of filming on Once's Vancouver set. The candid shots show her costars goofing off, getting their fairy-tale faces prepped, and enjoying some downtime between takes. ''My cast are all very open, honest people who share their most vulnerable moments,'' says Goodwin, who also managed to sneak in a self-portrait. ''I was just hoping to capture some of them on camera.'' Goodwin snapped this photo of her reflection in a camera lens while waiting for a close-up shot.
While shooting an action sequence, costar Jennifer Morrison slipped away to sign autographs for friends and family of crew members. ''I liked it because it was a quiet, generous moment,'' explains Goodwin of the photo she took.
