Sometimes we get so excited about all the new characters popping up in Once Upon a Time Season 2 that we lose count of all the new faces. Luckily, Raphael Sbarge (Archie Hopper/Jiminy Cricket) is here to remind us just how many fairy tale and mythological legends are coming this season.

In an interview with TVFanatic, Raphael teases what’s to come.
“What you can also expect is a remarkable parade of new characters. We've met Mulan [Jamie Chung] and Sleeping Beauty [Sarah Bolger]. Captain Hook [Colin O’Donoghue] is coming and I know about six more. It's a huge sort of expansion of the canvas of the Once Upon a Time family. I think if you like what you saw last year, you're going to be even doubly excited by the stories that are coming your way.”
Wow! Six new characters, aside from the ones we’ve already met and seen in the first two episodes, and aside from Captain Hook? We tried to figure out, based on spoilers and sneak peeks, which characters Raphael is talking about, and we think we’ve compiled a strong list: Lancelot (who we’ll meet in Season 2, Episode 3: “Lady of the Lake”, airing October 14), Rumplestiltskin’s (Robert Carlyle) wife Milah (Rachel Shelley), Anita (a sexy sorceress coming in Episode 7), Quinn (a warlock coming in Episode 7), the Giant (played by Jorge Garcia), and Jack.
Of course, there are additional characters rumored to be coming, including Aladdin and Jaffar, and possibly Ariel from The Little Mermaid. But the above six are all confirmed.
Who are you most excited to meet?
