Once Upon a Time – 3.12 “New York City Serenade” Cast Filming BTS Pics (spoilers)

The Once Upon a Time cast has been filming scenes for the second half of the third season, episode 3.12 “New York City Serenade”

We’re still in the dark about the new curse which will hit Storybrooke and its implications. All we know is that Emma (Jennifer Morrison), Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and Henry (Jared Gilmore) left Storybrooke to go to New York and not the Enchanted Forest.

The BTS pics show the fairy tale characters in their Enchanted Forest costumes, Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), Charming (Josh Dallas), Belle (Emilie de Ravin), The Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla), Aurora (Sarah Bolger), Philip (Julian Morris), Grumpy (Lee Arenberg) and the other dwarves , Granny (Beverley Elliott), Neal (Michael Raymond-James) and Hook.

While a curse might have taken everyone back to the Enchanted Forest, it doesn’t quite explain why we see the sexy swashbuckling pirate with them, as he’s supposed to be in NY. New pictures show Hook being quite his dashing self riding a horse.

It will be interesting to see if this is just a dream sequence or if Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis plan to incorporate more timelines into the show as they did with LOST – though we’re not very keen on the idea of possible flash sideways (AU). We’ve seen many flashbacks, but a flash forward would be something entirely new this season.

We’ll have to wait until March before we’ll know more how this fits in with the New York storyline, and the guest appearance by Christopher Gorham.

Once Upon a Time winter finale airs on Sunday 15 December at 8/7c on ABC

  1. I am so confused by those pics. If it wasn’t for a grown Neal, a Hook who at that time in the past would have been in NL, and Sarah as Aurora in one of the pics where u see ginny and josh holding hands as their walking before filming i’d say it would be a flashback scene due to the length of snows hair.

    • no it’s present day. the curse altered their looks. short hair was Mary-Margaret Blanchard. long hair, is snow white if rumple came back with them he would look like just the way he did with the scales… perhaps. not sure if Belle broke his curse, before he did what he had to do.

  2. I think what we see are people who are supposed to be in a “neitherworld”. These characters are dead.


  3. I have but one question, where the hell is Rumplestiltskin amidst all of this!?

  4. He’s dead probly, maybe pan in Henrys body is his undoing

  5. Rumple isn’t dead his “undoing” was losing his magic which was his everything . Pan clearly said in the last episode that without magic rumple will go back to being a coward. Which I believe means he will be back in the enchanted forest as a regular man.

  6. Them pictures r the people from story brook who have just come back it is just before Hook goes to new York to find Emma and I think Christopher Gorham is going to be Emma’s new lover because she has forgot about hook and Neal. And I think rumple isn’t dead I think he is just lost like baefire was and I thought that Peter in Henry’s body was his undoing but I think rumple undoing might be that Henry makes he no longer have magic something like that. So hook will have to fight for Emma with Christopher.

  7. Can’t wait till march 9
