It's about redemption: Executive producer Edward Kitsis toldTV Guide that this season will tackle the problem of redemption, since, at the end of Season 1, so many characters suddenly remembered things about themselves they may rather forget. "Archie, for example, who is Jiminy Cricket, is a conscience, but for 28 years, he's forgotten the fact that he turned Gepetto's parents into puppets."
Jack: We already knew that we'd be meeting a new character named Jack. Based on a sneak peek of the new title sequences, it seems pretty likely this is Jack from Jack in the Beanstalk, since one of the new title animations is a beanstalk. According to E!, Jack is charismatic, mysterious, and running from his past.
More new and old characters: According to E!, Season 2 will feature Prince Phillip to go along with Sleeping Beauty. He is a skilled warrior, of course. We will also "absolutely" see more of the Mad Hatter (yay!), and Bailee Madisonwill return as young Snow White, so expect more flashbacks.
Snow and Prince Charming: Ginnifer Goodwin says Snow and Charming's relationship will be "titillating" and "as satisfying and frustrating as it was last season, but for totally different reasons."
Henry in the air: Recent set photosshow Jared Gilmore (Henry) suspended in midair while Lana Parrilla (Regina) looks on. Does Regina use magic on her son?
Storybrooke's a mess: Other set photos show that Storybrooke is a physical mess after the wave of magic that washed over it at the end of Season 1.
Could we visit Oz? Executive producer Edward Kitsis told TV Guide that the multiple worlds they established with the Mad Hatter means that visiting Oz is a possibility, though there are currently no plans to fly over the rainbow in Season 2.
A look at Hook: This awesome promo teases the introduction of Captain Hook.
