A fan asked Entertainment Weekly for some Emma scoop and they replied, "Emma might be trapped in another land with her mom, but that’s not the only place we’ll see her this season. In an upcoming episode, we’re going to have a revealing Emma flashback that will take us back to Portland."
Portland, eh? Hmm. In late September, Vancity Filming, which is good about following the production as it shoots in British Columbia, spotted Emma's yellow Beetle in downtown Vancouver. They also saw a Portland police car. They wondered if this meant Emma had left Storybrooke, Maine, for Portland. Maybe. Or, as someone speculated in the comments, "Perhaps they’re filming a flashback, and we’ll see the sequence of events that led her to give birth in jail in Portland."
Have they ever said Emma gave birth in Portland — Maine, Oregon or otherwise? We know she gave birth to Henry in prison when she was 18, but was it in Portland? What was she doing in Portland that will be so revealing for us?
