Once Upon a Time can be deadly, and a new spoiler from TVLine's Spoiler Alert! video series confirms that we can expect more bloodshed soon. Read spoilers at your own risk!

In the spoiler-ific video, reporter Matt Mitovich confirms that on Once Upon a Time Episode 15: "The Queen Is Dead" there is a "minor death," and Episode 16: "The Miller's Daughter" contains "a pretty sizable death."
We haven't seen Episode 15, so we don't know who dies in that episode. However, we suspect the answer is simply Snow White's (Ginnifer Goodwin) mother. After all, the flashback portion of the episode focuses on a young Snow trying to save her mother's life, and we all know that Snow's mom does die while she's young. Plus, the episode is called "The Queen Is Dead." Snow White's mom was a queen, so her death would fit.
As for the "sizable" death in Episode 16 — well, we can't tell you who it is, but, having seen the episode, we can confirm that it's definitely a notable character. Furthermore, the way in which s/he dies definitely has some widespread consequences.
Since we know who it is, we can't play a guessing game. But share your theories in the comments below!
