Dead is dead, but soulless is … less dead?

Prince Phillip (Julian Morris) was attacked by a wraith on the Once Upon a Time Season 2 premiere, “Broken,” and we wondered if we would ever see him again. Last night, after the airing of Episode 5, “The Doctor,” showrunner Adam Horowitz had a little Twitter convo with fans about some OUAT characters.

TVLine writer Vlada Gelman asked why Phillip’s girlfriend, Aurora/Sleeping Beauty (Sarah Bolger), was still hanging out with Mulan (Jamie Chung), Emma (Jennifer Morrison), and Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin).

“Aurora's got no place else to go!” Adam tweeted in response. “#anofficerandaprincess and would she really want to stay with dead bodies?” Vlada replied, “All the more reason Whale should bring back her pretty prince. In a non-monstrous way, of course. ;)” Adam wrote, “Yeah, it'd be a real shame if we never saw @Ju1ianMorris again, wouldn't it? #winkwink.”

Wink wink! That’s the international sign for We’re Going To See Julian Morris Again! The four Fairytale Land ladies have a lot going on right now — and they already have a token hot guy in the group with Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) — but it’s good to hear we haven’t seen the last of Phillip. There has to be a way to reverse the soul-sucking process...

Catch the next new episode of Once Upon a Time on Sunday, November 4 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
