The wait for Once Upon a Time Season 3 is unbearable, but at least we have the highly anticipated Comic-Con panel to help hold us over. Hopefully the cast and crew will reveal something juicy — or, really, anything at all.
If you couldn't make Comic-Con yourself, never fear: We'll be updating this article with the biggest reveals and coolest tidbits from the panel right here.

Non-stop episodes confirmed. Once again, the plan to split the season into two parts, each with 11 non-stop episode, was confirmed. "We will no longer air one episode every seven months."
A good kill? "My favorite kill is coming up in season 3," said Lana Parrilla. Hmmm ... does Regina get revenge for Henry?
Tinker Bell confirmed. In case you still had doubt: Yes, we will meet Tinker Bell. Even better: She has a connection to one of the cast members who was on the OUAT Comic-Con panel ... which was most of them, so it doesn't narrow it down much.
And Peter Pan? Adam Horowitz says Peter Pan has "a complicated motivation." So, it sounds like he's more than just a pure baddie. Of course, when is a villain ever just a villain on OUAT?
The focus is on the Jolly Roger gang. In the past the showrunners have said their will be plenty of Storybrooke, but at the panel they confirmed what seemed obvious: The focus of the season will be on the Jolly Roger gang. That said, the events in Neverland and Storybrooke will be connected in a way Adam Horowitz hopes is surprising. Also, there's a reason Neal landed in Fairytale Land, and we'll learn more about that.
Might the Charmings break up? Edward Kitsis said that "the Charming's breaking up would be the loss of all hope." Given that OUAT is all about hope, that probably means we can rest assured that this couple will stick it out through anything. Is anyone surprised?
Is Swan Queen intentional? Sorry Swan Queen shippers, but Edward Kitsis confirmed that the writers don't write any intentional Swan Queen action. They're just writing Emma and Regina as strong female characters who both love Henry.
Ariel is coming! It's confirmed!
