Once Upon a Time Season 2 is right around the bend (it premieres on September 30), so we were thrilled to have a chance to chat with Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan) about the new series at the 2012 Creative Arts Emmys (where she was a presenter).
While Jennifer avoided spilling any major spoilers — this cast knows how to keep the mystery alive! — she did drop a few hints about Emma's future romance, her new relationship with her family, and whether or not she can do magic.
Wetpaint Entertainment: So magic has come to Storybrooke, what challenges can we expect now?
Jennifer Morrison: You know everything has changed and the world is upside down for Emma. Not that she is Alice in Wonderland but in a sense that she feels like Alice in Wonderland who has gone down the rabbit hole. You know up is down and down is up and left is right and so her whole world is shaken up and she’s sort of kind of a new being. She’s born in a whole new way now and has to find a way to protect her son and protect her relationships with her family and develop them and figure out how to move forward without being so guarded and without keeping people out.
Will Emma be able to do magic in the second season?
You know it’s one of those things where it’s going to be a long process of discovery. Initially in the season it’s about dealing with the fact that magic has come at this moment and it’s going to take time to work that out and I think in her process of trying to keep everyone safe and trying to figure out what this means to the world you’re going to start discovering certain things she’s capable of and she’s going to start discovering certain things she’s capable of.
What can you tell us about a possible family reunion?
Yeah there is a family reunion and yeah, it’s complicated, I don’t know how else to put it, it’s just complicated.
Will we ever see Emma and Huntsman together again?
Oh you know it’s so funny our show seems to bring everyone back around and around and around so that’s something I can’t say!
Is there romance for her this season?
Absolutely there’s definitely romance coming.
Once Upon a Time Season 2 premieres on September 30, 2012 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
