There’s no official word yet on what role this royal baby is going to play in the grand scheme of things on the show, but there is certainly some speculation. Like, could the baby be Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz?
TVLineteases that Ginnifer and Josh have been considering that exact theory — though they were leaning toward the notion that their first-born, Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), would be a Dorothy-esque figure. The site also reports that as of filming for Season 3, Episode 18 (“Bleeding Through”), there were still no hints of the baby’s identity.
We could totally see either of these situations playing out, though we are still unsure why it looks like the Wicked Witch is so interested in babies. Maybe she’s trying to seek out Dorothy before she’s born — you know, to avoid that whole water situation.
What do you think about the theories that either Snow and Charming’s new baby or Emma could be Dorothy? Hit the comments and speculate!
