The lovely Emilie de Ravin (Belle) just wrapped filming on Season 2 of Once Upon A Time, and let loose information on whether or not bookworm Belle will be back for Season 3. What did she have to say in her telling tweet?
“Wrapped season 2 #ouat last night! Will really miss all r wonderful cast & crew. Have a great summer break & can't wait to reunite soon! Xoxo,” Emilie tweeted last night (could she be any sweeter?). The gratitude is nice and all, but all we can see is the “can’t wait to reunite soon.” We’re taking this as confirmation Belle will be back for Season 3.
Of course, this doesn’t answer all of our questions. Will Belle be back or will we still be dealing with Racy Lacey, Belle’s real-world alter ago? The next new episode (Season 2, Episode 19) is called “Lacey” and, judging by the synopsis, sounds pretty Rumpelle-centric. We’re hoping Belle’s character might be getting some resolution (i.e. her memory back) soon. Not only do we miss her, but we think Rumple needs someone to talk to. Whatever happens, we’re happy to hear Emilie will be back for Season 3!
Are you excited that Belle will be back for Season 3? Let us know in the comments below!
