There’s been a fair deal of speculation that the hooded leader of The Lost Ones seen in the Once Upon a Time Season 2 finale is actually Peter Pan himself. Well, OUAT co-showrunner Adam Horowitz took to Twitter to debunk that particular theory:

“Talking ABOUT pan.  We haven't seen him yet,” tweeted Adam yesterday, clearing up any confusion that the Jamie Bower-Campbell look-a-like who searched Hook’s ship and brought Bae to Peter Pan was the flying boy himself. We have to admit, we kind of liked that theory. Peter Pan is exactly the type to refer to himself in the third person.

Still, we’re excited that we’ve yet to meet the Boy Wonder because it gives us even more to look forward to in Season 3. How does Peter Pan relate to The Shadow that creepily shows up at children’s windows and pulls them to Neverland? And what does he want with Henry? Will the kingpin of Neverland have anything in common with the Peter Pan we know and love or will he be nearly unrecognizable?

We do have this tiny bread crumb left by Adam, confirming that the role of Peter Pan will be filled by a male. He didn’t want to say anything else lest give something important away. We know it’s not much to go on, but it is something. It proves OUAT will not be pulling a gender-swap on the role (which they have done in the past), as well as makes us wonder what Adam could have said to give the game away.

Are you bummed The Lost Ones’ Leader isn’t Peter Pan? What do you think Adam was trying not to reveal? Let us know your theories in the comments below!
