On Once Upon a Time, plenty of characters disappear for a few episodes, but they usually resurface — whether dead or alive — in good time. However, that has not been the case for Princess Aurora and her beau, Prince Philip.

While Philip has been MIA for basically the entire series (his soul is dunzo, for all intents and purposes, but he’s not dead), Aurora was last seen with her best friend Mulan after she got her heart back, so she should be able to venture back soon... right?

Based on a new photo — and the fact that co-creator Adam Horowitz said that the trio is “not forgotten”  — we may be seeing them soon!

Philip’s portrayer, Julian Morris, recently Instagrammed a pic of him hanging out with Aurora’s real-life counterpart, Sarah Bolger! While the photo is black and white and she doesn’t look like she’s in costume, you never know — they could be storming the set as we speak!.

While we’d love to see them this season, we have our doubts. Unless they can open up that portal again, they’ll have to be separated from Snow & Co. and fend for themselves in the post-curse Enchanted Forest.

Do you want Philip and Aurora to come back? Sound off below.
