It’s time for a flashback. Don’t worry, it will be fun. In fact, on the set of ABC’s Once Upon a Time, flashbacks can prove just as suspenseful as anything else the plot has to offer. Where are we going in the time machine this time? Well, an upcoming episode of your favorite fantasy series will take you back to the town of Storybrooke’s original inception. We can give you a first look, thanks to these great photos.
Pack your bags because this little trip down memory lane will launch on your TV screen this Sunday. And how is this for a teaser? I can tell you that by examining the town’s early days, we can see once again one or two sorely missed characters. Care to guess who one of those might be? Okay, I’ll just tell you. Let’s give some applause to Jamie Dornan as Sheriff Graham! You’ll never believe who he is flirting with. Yikes!
Yes, in one photo the good sheriff is offering Regina a white rose. They also seem to echange overly pleasant smiles over Regina’s pancakes. Don’t worry, though. Regina’s mental facilities are focused elsewhere. She gives her full attention to a mysterious visitor called Kurt Flynn, acted by Sunday’s guest star John Pyper-Ferguson. That would be him in the red vest and dark flannel. You see, this mystery man and his son Owen stumbled into town on this day in the 80’s and this a very big problem when Regina thinks Storybrooke is a total secret to the outside world.
“We’re going to see the first week of the curse,” co-creator Eddy Kitsis teased at PaleyFest. “We’re going to get more insight into what it was like that first week in 1983, and what it was like for the Evil Queen to win.”
Does Regina manipulate Sheriff Graham into strong arming Flynn? Oh no!
