"We're going to see more of the dynamic between Snow and Charming," Josh says, explaining that once Snow is back in Storybrooke we will get to see the couple — who have "been apart for 28 years, basically" —rediscover each other, and tackle the issue of whether or not they want to stay in Storybrooke.
Josh thinks Charming would prefer to return to Fairytale Land, which makes sense to us — he's not exactly the type to shy away from fighting the occasional orge, if necessary. And, as Josh says, Fairytale Land is the home of the kingdom Snow and Charming fought for, "the one that they love."
Of course, Charming also has Emma (Jennifer Morrison) to worry about, and we will see more of his attempts to "reconnect" with his daughter — but, Josh adds, "I think he doesn't want to push the parental thing with her very much."
On top of all that, Storybrooke has Cora (Barbara Hershey) to worry about. "We'll see what chaos ensues when she arrives," Josh teases.
