On the Once Upon a Time Season 2 premiere, the newly curse-free Storybrooke inhabitants were confused to find themselves still in our world. Regina (Lana Parrilla) explained that it's because Fairytale Land is gone. It turns out that's untrue, but Fairytale Land isn't exactly the happy, gorgeous place it once way, either.
But does everyone in town even want return home, if it becomes a possibility? Show creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis recently chatted with TVLine, and they weighed in on how the Storybrooke inhabitants feel about their new lives.

"The reactions kind of run the gamut," Adam Horowitz explained. "Everybody is very interested in what their new circumstance means, and they also are very concerned about what the presence of magic will mean for all of their lives."
Edward Kitsis pointed to Leroy/Grumpy (Lee Arenberg) as a character who's especially "excited to reclaim who he once was and act on that," since his role as part of Snow White's (Ginnifer Goodwin) Queen's Guard is far more awesome than his loser-towney Storybrooke persona.
Adam Horowitz also teased that the writers are "excited" about what's coming up for Ruby (Meghan Ory), promising that we'll see a "different Ruby" now that she remembers the person she was. Question: Will Ruby be happy about remembering? She was pretty kickbutt in Fairytale Land, but she also ate her True Love. That's the kind of thing we'd rather forget...
