ABC has released the official season finale description for Once Upon A Time, airing May 11.

“Snow Drifts”/”There’s No Place Like Home” – While Mary Margaret and David celebrate the naming of their son at a coronation in Granny’s Diner, Emma and Hook are pulled into Zelena’s time portal and find themselves in the Enchanted Forest of the past. But in their quest to discover a way back, they must be careful not to change ANYTHING or risk altering the lives of their friends and family — as well as their very own existence, on the two-hour season finale of “Once Upon a Time,” SUNDAY, MAY 11 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET).

So lets break it down a bit shall we?

Apparently, Snow and Charming are going to name their baby a significant name. What could it be? Actress Ginnifer Goodwin admitted that the name will be very unexpected and even made her a little emotional. Obviously names play a huge role in this fairy book story. I’m really out of ideas on this one, but what I do know is that the name will likely be a clue to something that will happen next season. Maybe a clue to where we’re going to next? The celebrations are held at Granny’s and it seems like the happiness isn’t going to last long before Hook and Emma get dragged to the past. But on the plus side, Red returns! Woohoo!

Hook/Swan shippers are going to hate the finale. Emma gets sucked into Zelena’s time portal and Hook isn’t about to let the love of his life go by herself. The duo ends up in the Enchanted Forest of the past, around the time Emma’s parents meet. Their mission is going to be not to change the past so that they don’t alter the future. Which means, they need to make sure that Snow and Charming meet and fall in love. I’m kind of envisioning this going totally sour. What happens if Snow and Charming don’t actually like each other the second time they meet. Will Emma start disappearing as a result? The duo also has to make sure not to fall in love themselves and do something that could totally change the future. Sounds super exciting! Also, Zelena traveled back in time to change the future. Are they going to have to try to stop her? Convince Rumpel to choose Regina? Or will Zelena not remember that she came to the past to change it? A lot is riding on their adventure in the time machine! (P.S- Doesn’t Emma look adorbs in the past! And look at the handsome Hook! Me-ow!)

I think part two, “Home is where the heart is” is obviously a nod to The Wizard of Oz, but it’ll be crucial to Emma realizing that she needs to stay in Storybrooke. This whole season she’s been saying that once everything is over, she’s going back to New York where she and Henry were actually happy. Are you kidding me? She’s in love with Hook, she’s been reunited with her parents who just gave birth to her sibling, and it’s her destiny to be the hero of Storybrooke. Also, Henry is not going to want to leave. Good for him! I’m assuming her time in the past will help her cherish her future.

The promo also teases a ball, where Emma and Hook dance together. Could this be the moment Emma realizes she actually has feelings for the pirate?

And finally, we will definitely find out what town/city/ location we’re headed to next. This season has involved a lot of traveling for the story book characters. We started in Neverland, traveled to New York, returned to Storybrooke and visited Oz. Where could we go next? If foreshadowing is the writers thing than maybe we’re headed to Narnia?? When we first me the Good Witch of the East, she was banished to a forest that only the pure could visit through a secret door. Maybe the gang will have to visit Narnia next?? I think that would be kind of fun! The lion, the witch and the wardrobe! I could see that being interpreted creatively for sure!

Here’s an interview (by TVGUIDE) with the shows creators to get a better jist of what to expect.

Emma and Hook are going to end up in the past in the finale. Could they affect the future?
Edward Kitsis: Absolutely. The biggest threat they’re going to face in these two hours is not ruining their past.
Adam Horowitz: They’ve got to figure out a lot of things, not the least of which is getting home, but also how to make sure there’s a home to get home to.

Is there a part of Emma that grapples with whether or not she could change things and end up being raised by her family?
Horowitz: There’s a part of Emma that is certainly going to grapple with what her family is like in the present and the past and what that means for her, because there’s a very good chance she’s going to get to see what things were like before her parents were her parents.
Kitsis: At the beginning of the year in Neverland, we set up that Emma said to her mom Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), “I still feel like an orphan.” Then we saw that her happiest time in life is a fake memory that Regina (Lana Parrilla) gave her, which was New York. She’s trying to get back to that with Henry (Jared Gilmore). She’s rejecting her life. Emma is a character that’s looking for home, but because she’s never had one, she doesn’t know what it is. These two hours are really going to answer that question, which is why it’s titled “There’s No Place Like Home.”

Fans are worried that Emma and Hook could accidentally erase the last three years of the show. Do you want to defend yourself?
Horowitz: First of all, I would say that we’re not going to defend anything before it has actually aired. Let the fans watch it and then we’ll talk after. We are very excited about our storytelling choices and we think we’re doing something that is uniquely our show.
Kitsis: And satisfying. They can worry all they want, but they should hold off until Sunday night.
Horowitz: Put the pitchforks away, watch the show and then we’ll talk.

When you first envisioned the pilot, you guys considered killing off Charming (Josh Dallas), but then feared you would rob Snow White of her happy ending. What does that mean for Emma when it comes to her happy ending? That it isn’t about love for her?
Kitsis: What we said in Episode 11 this year, “Going Home,” which was the winter finale, is that happy endings aren’t always what we think they are. That is an important thing because at the end of the day, our show at its core is about hope. That is, in a lot of ways, what the theme of the season is, that happy endings aren’t always what we think they are.
Horowitz: Happy endings aren’t always about other people. They’re not about whether you’re going to wind up with this person or that person. Happy endings are about yourself. The show has been about Emma’s journey over three seasons so far; about who she is, who she was and who she’s going to become.

Did Zelena really die or is there a chance that she could be brought back to life because of the time traveling?
Kitsis: She was definitely defeated. It definitely looks as if she’s dead and she will not really be in the finale. That being said, we didn’t find a body, so we’ll see whether or not she can resurface in the future.

What is the rest of the gang dealing with in present-day Storybrooke?
Horowitz: There’s a lot going on in present-day Storybrooke.
Kitsis: We’ve got the Rumple (Robert Carlyle) and Belle (Emilie de Ravin) proposal.
Horowitz: They’re registering at Crate & Barrel. In all seriousness, we saw that, as far as everybody is concerned, Zelena is in a jail cell, but she’s not. Now she’s dead. That’s a piece of the puzzle that is going to very quickly become apparent to everyone. What are the effects of that? There’s also the matter of a baby without a name. There are plenty of things for our characters in Storybrooke to be dealing with.
Kitsis: And Doc (David Paul Grove) has to see how long it will take for his Miata to get fixed. [Laughs]

Will Belle discover that Rumple deceived her?
Kitsis: We’ve learned on this show that secrets tend to really come back and bite you, but whether or not it’s in these final two hours remains to be seen. I’ll tell you this: Rumple’s proposal and his love for Belle is genuine, but he’s a complicated man. He’s told us he’s a difficult man to love. We’re just beginning to explore what is going on in his head. A lot of that will be revealed next season.

What should we divine from that smirk on Regina’s face after she locked up Zelena’s pendant in her vault?
Kitsis: It’s funny that you bring that up. That’s one of my favorite scenes in that episode and maybe the series. What that smirk said was: I won and I like myself today. She used light magic. She went against somebody she didn’t think she could beat. She has Robin Hood (Sean Maguire) and she is making huge strides toward a new life. We wanted to show you a private moment where Regina — who really cast the curse because she felt like she could never win and never find happiness — in that moment alone, she smiles and says, “I won.”

Some fans worried that it meant she might’ve been conspiring with Rumple. 
Kitsis: No, that was a genuine moment. It’s hard when you have a show like this because we love to give surprises and twists, but sometimes people read into our genuine moments. Really, she won and she’s happy. Let’s enjoy that for her.

We’ve been waiting for a big wedding in the finale. Everyone has been expecting that it’s Rumple and Belle’s, but could it actually be Snow and Charming’s wedding from the past?
Horowitz: It could be your wedding!
Kitsis: They’re going to your wedding on the show and we are going into the future. [Laughs] RumpBelle fans, we will definitely explore them in our next chapter. As for what wedding we have, watch it live on Sunday.

Will we see any surprise guests returning for the finale?
Horowitz: Maybe.
Kitsis: We’re going to see a good group of the people that we’ve come to know. Of course there are some faces we wish we could see that we won’t. And there will be some faces that we forgot about that are coming back that we’ll be excited to see. We are definitely going to tell you whether or not Aurora (Sarah Bolger) was killed as a monkey or she’s alive and everyone is good.

Will the finale offer up a hint as to who the villain will be for Season 4?
Kitsis: We’re definitely setting up the area into which we are going next year. You will know what we are planning to do at the end of these two hours.

CW Spring Schedule—’Walker’ Premiere Date Announced, But Where Is ‘Superman & Lois’?

Published

Walker Recap Season 3 Episode 8 Cry Uncle

The CW is gearing up for its spring TV season—and April showers are clearly going to be bringing back many highly-anticipated shows by fans. 

With plenty of CW originals going on the chopping block last year, two survivors, Walker and All American, finally have airdates for what will likely be their final seasons. 

All American Season 6 will be gracing TV screens on Monday, April 1 at 8/7c (no, this isn’t an April Fools joke), as Walker returns with Season 4 on Wednesday, April 3! 

Two surviving shows that are visibly absent from the lineup, however, are All American: Homecoming and Superman & Lois.

It’s unclear why the shows are being held back, but the hope is that they will now mark the network’s fall TV season.

As for new shows, Walker will be joined by crime drama Sight Unseen starring The Originals‘ Daniel Gillies. 

There’s also no word on a second season for The CW’s Sullivan’s Crossing starring Chad Michael Murray, Scott Patterson and Morgan Kohan, though it seems the series will be debuting in April in Canada, so fingers cross a fall return is possibly stateside. 

Here’s the full lineup for The CW spring 2024:

MONDAY, APRIL 1
8 pm All American (Season 6 premiere)
9 pm Lovers and Liars (series premiere)

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3

It’s Happening—’Wizards of Waverly Place’ Is Getting a Sequel With Selena Gomez

Published

on

In the words of the Wizards of Waverly Place theme song—yes, please

Deadline exclusively reported that Disney is reviving its hit series, starring Selena Gomez. The network has ordered a pilot for a sequel to the teen show that ran from 2007 to 2012 on Disney Channel.

And there’s definitely something to be more excited about because it’s set to be executive-produced by original stars Gomez and on-screen brother David Henrie.

That’s not all! Gomez will reportedly guest star the pilot episode to reprise her iconic role as Alex Russo, while Henrie will be a series regular in the role of Justin Russo. 

Rounding out the new cast will be Janice LeAnn Brown (Billie), Alkalio Thiele (Roman Russo), and Mimi Gianopulos (Giada) who will play Justin’s wife and kids. 

The series, hailing from the writers and producers of Raven’s Home (another spinoff of an early Disney Channel show, That’s So Raven, that found a second life) Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas, will kick off with a mysterious incident as WizTech, where Justin works after surrendering his wizard powers to lead a human life. 

However, Billie soon arrives as a powerful young wizard seeking training and guidance, forcing Justin to get back to magic to save the Wizard World. 

Henrie confirmed the news on social media, sharing a photo of the pilot episode and captioning it, “The Russo’s are excited to become a part of your family, once again, but we’ve grown 😊 2024, the year magic comes back! 🪄”

Gomez also took to her Instagram Story to share a throwback photo with Henrie, writing, “We’re back.”

It’s unclear if other members of the original cast who played Justin’s parents and brother—Maria Canals-Barrera, David DeLuise, and Jake T. Austin—along with Alex’s bestie Jennifer Stone will reprise their roles. 

But this is something worthy of celebration for all the millennials who grew up with the Russo family!

‘Roswell, New Mexico’ Star Jeanine Mason Shares Sweet Update From Wedding

Published

Roswell, New Mexico Season Premiere Review Steal My Sunshine Season 4 Episode 1

Jeanine Mason is officially off the market!

The Roswell, New Mexico star, who announced her engagement back in March 2023, shared sweet wedding photos from her recent nuptials.

The So You Think You Can Dance champion is said to have married husband Nicholas late last year. 

She shared two intimate photos on Instagram, one of the duo kissing after they seemingly exchanged “I do’s” as their guests looked on, along with a second shot of the two cozying up to each other on the subway.

“So many thank yous to come. But for now, just one to this unbelievable man. I love you husband,” the Upload actress captioned the post, which you can see right here.

Brides got more of the scoop on the newlyweds and their big day, noting that she and Nicholas met on a dating app and later exhaling vows on the stoop of their New York City home, which is also where he proposed. 

“We thought, how fun would it be to bring our favorite people along for a weekend in our lives here in New York City and to fill all our neighborhood spots with our families and friends,” she told the outlet. “We imagined, ‘What would our ideal weekend be with our favorite people?’ and then, ‘How do we want to be married?’ We really threw tradition or answering to any standard out the window.”

With that said, they told guests to go all out with their outfits, telling them to “do the MOST.” 

Nicholas serves a major in the Army Reserves following years of active duty, so he opted for his military dress uniform.

They also used the day as an opportunity to hire as many artists as they possibly could, including a violinist to perform during the ceremony, local artists for illustrations, and florists for flowers and arches.

As for the public transit choice—that’s how everyone got to the reception! 

“We always knew we’d take the subway to the reception but this was the perfect way to start the party,” she said. 

Since Mason is Cuban, there was also plenty of music and dancing on a “large dance floor,” and she even danced the salsa with her dad as it’s a “huge part of our culture and the way we celebrate. I think we made the Cubans proud.”

Her co-stars immediately jumped into the comment section to share their congratulations—warming the hearts of The CW fans all around—as Michael Vlamis wrote “VLAMIS GOT MARRIED!!!!” Tyler Blackburn shared a series of heart emojis, Heather Hemmens wrote “So beautiful! Congrats you two!” and Lily Cowles added, “So gorgeous! Felicitaciones mi amor.”

Congrats to the happy couple—we wish you all the best on this new journey!
