We still have several weeks before Once Upon a Time premieres on September 29 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, but the writers of the hit show have already completed Episode 6: Ariel’s introduction to Neverland!

Season 3, Episode 6 is fittingly called “Ariel” and was written by two of the show’s executive producers, Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis. In fact, it was Adam who tweeted the first page of Episode 6’s script, writing, “Wonder what this one is about... #OnceUponATime #titlespoilers.”

Clearly the ep is about Ariel — who will be played by Gossip Girl’s Joanna Garcia Swisher and we couldn’t be more psyched about this mermaid’s debut.

Earlier this month Edward revealed that everyone’s favorite gal who just wants some freakin’ legs will have a “surprising” introduction, but little else is known about her first episode.

However, Edward did describe her character as “somebody who wants to see the world” and revealed that she won’t be the only mermaid we meet in Neverland

We get that Ariel wants to be “part of their world” but do we really have to wait until Episode 6 to meet her? We just want out mermaid!

Are you surprised that Princess Ariel won’t be introduced until Episode 6? Sound off below!
