There are a lot of things we want to see on Once Upon a Time, including, but not limited to Rumbelle’s reunion, a SwanQueen hookup, and Graham’s rise from the dead, but we can’t always get what we want.

There is one thing on our wish list that is more feasible than the others, though: a musical episode. We brainstormed a few prime opportunities for our favorite cast to sing back in February, and though star Josh Dallas (Prince Charming) says he doesn’t think it’s going to happen “in the near future,” he didn’t rule out the possibility, so we’re still holding out hope.

However, there’s one cast member who we definitely won’t see singing and dancing on-screen if it comes to fruition. During a recent interview, Robert Carlyle (Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold) admitted that he thinks musicals in general are “weird.”

“Musicals to me have always been weird. People singing at each other. Very, very odd,” he dished to Once-Storybrooke. “I do like Opera however, love a bit of Puccini, and I guess that could be called the same thing… only it’s not.”

After that explanation, he broke the sad news in an interesting way, admitting, “ I’m afraid I would have to be bound and gagged and thrown onto the stage from a great height. Even then I might escape. I would escape.”

We all know how great Rumple is at escaping, so we don’t doubt that Robert would find a way to disappear. Do you think the musical episode should still happen without him, or would it be missing too big of a key player? Sound off below!
