Henry, your papa's coming! (Oh, and Rumple, your son is coming?)
Michael Raymond-James was the mystery man with the “Broken” postcard on the Once Upon a Time Season 2 premiere. Then he was revealed to be Emma's (Jennifer Morrison) baby daddy, Neal Cassady, on Episode 6. We knew we'd be seeing him again, but the actor shared some exciting news last night during a Twitter Q&A.
Later, after more Q&A, he tweeted, "Damn, just finding out one of my tweets from earlier was picked up by the Twitteratti and turned into a story. Smh ... Hope I don't get in trouble. Lesson learned." Hopefully the lesson he learns is how much OUAT fans love straight answers! We're used to so much teasing it is truly headline-worthy when someone provides solid intel.
It seems like more than a coincidence that the promo for Episode 11, "The Outsider," also shows Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) at the Storybrooke town line, with Belle (Emilie de Ravin) saying he can now go find his son, Baelfire. It feels like this is the beginning of the Rumple/Bae story, which may also be the Henry/Emma/Neal story. If even half of that is true, M R-J is going to be a major part of the OUAT world for the rest of the season. Episode 14 is called "Manhattan" and that's where Emma supposedly goes into the city to track down Neal. So at the very least we should get an Emma/Neal reunion at that point. We can’t wait for all the answers to be revealed — hopefully with another August Booth/Pinocchio (Eion Bailey) sighting so he can explain his magical box and everything else he’s been up to.
