Once Upon a Time isn’t even returning until March 9 and already massive spoilers are being teased for the end of Season 3. Not only do we have a new big bad, the Wicked Witch (Rebecca Mader), to look forward to, but now we know there’s a death on the horizon.

According to TVLine, one major character will be meeting their ever after, and not in a happy way. Creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz confirmed to the news outlet that during the last 11 episodes of Season 3, one series regular will be exiting for good.

“The character dies, for real,” Eddy assured everyone. Uh-oh, that means that not even magic will be able to save the life of whoever is about to be dearly departed.

We don’t have any other details about the unlucky character, but we can probably assume that this is going to be at the hands of the Wicked Witch, since she’s being teased as a “big part” of the rest of the season and seems pretty dastardly.

The showrunners told TVLine that every series regular is a possibility, barring Rumple (Robert Carlyle), since he disappeared and theoretically died (though we suspect he will be back) to rid Storybrooke of Peter Pan in the midseason finale. This means that Emma (Jennifer Morrison), Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), Prince Charming (Josh Dallas), Regina (Lana Parrilla), Henry (Jared Gilmore), Belle (Emilie de Ravin), Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), or Neal (Michael Raymond-James) will be biting the dust by season’s end.

We’re shaking in our boots.
