Comic-Con 2012: Once Upon a Time's Operation Cobra Isn't Over, and [SPOILER] Is Coming to Storybrooke (VIDEO)


ABC's Once Upon a Time held its Comic-Con panel today, and there are quite a view video highlights to share as a result.

For starters, here's your first look at Season 2!

OOOOOOOEeeeeeee! Will a certain glitter-faced individual be meeting his match in Captain Hook?

Also: I feel like I'm already starting to forget the "rules" of magic in the Once Upon a Time world, but can we talk about that sound effect when Henry opens his eyes? Knowing how August is faring these days, is it possible there's some sort of puppetry in this kid's future? Dear Lily Sparks, please come back from your honeymoon to lead a proper speculative discussion!

Next up, here's a quick compilation of every OUaT opening sequence we've seen thus far... plus a few new ones that provide a few more hints at the new season:

Looks like someone's about to plant some magic beans in Storybrooke. And was that sword-wielding gal our first glimpse of Mulan?

Finally, here's a pretty funny commercial for "Singlebrooke," Storybrooke's new dating service. It was screened during the panel, and will be included as a special feature on OUaT's Season 1 DVD set.

Plus here two more quick panel tidbits:

– Edward Kitsis: "We can definitely say that in Season 2 you will find out the identity of Henry's father."

– We'll also learn the who Mr. Whale's fairy-tale counterpart is, as well as what happened to Mr. Gold's Bae.


Let the speculation begin!


Psst! Check out our complete Comic-Con coverage for the latest news, photos, and more.

I miss Lily Sparks too! Her comments are often the funniest part of an episode! Still, a honeymoon can't last forever...



Will there be more paper dolls (hint, hint)? or maybe a "Season 2 makeover suggestions" article? I'd love to hear her take on some of the new additions.

My newest theory is that Dr Whale is Captain Hook. Wonder if there's any connection to Pinocchiop and Gepetto's whale? That fits with him hugging Regina at the end of Season 1. And any pirate would find Ruby a fetching lass...

i'm also interested to see how milan is going to fit into the story. looking forward to next season, after watching Singlebrooke it just makes me miss graham even more! i hope either he's brought back in someway (these are the creators of LOST after all) or we see more of the huntsman in FTL.

His name is Hart Archer and he founded a dating service, I presume he's supposed to be...Cupid?



You mean to tell me the Goddess of Love and Beauty gave birth to Paul Scheer?

They have been reimagining the myths here...And with Vulcan for a dad, the kid may not have grown up quite so pretty as those statues of chubby cherubs would imply

I wonder how they will connect Mulan to the story, considering that she is not really a fairy tale character and she is somewhat different from other princesses. Oh well, I am positively sure that the team had done a very nice job here. By the way, more powers to the team and more characters to come! :)

LOL! Henry is looking for a date.

Can you imagine Henry bringing a girl home?



"...and these are my moms, the Mayor and the Sheriff."



Yeah, good luck, sweetie.

Thought he had a crush on Paige/Grace- Jefferson wouldn't have a problem with that. Although her Storybrooke parents might.



Everybody in town knows about Henry's part in breaking the Curse. Could be lots of young ladies lining up to hang out with him, LOL!

I didn't think it was possible, but after watching the Singlebrooke Dating Service video, I'm even more in love with Lana Parrilla.

I know! My son's hs football team are totally obsessed with her - but they only skype about it or when they're playing online games. That's fine; but I just don't want him bringing home no evil queen as a d-in-law!

Captain Hook, Mulan, Sleeping Beauty....there are going to be so many cool new characters in season 2. But I'm even more excited about having the season 1 mysteries solved. It's really been bugging me, wondering who Dr. Whale is. I also can't wait to find out about Bae and Henry's dad... (still wondering if they are one and the same...)

I'm so excited. And I'm sad it's only July! I definitely can't wait for OUaT to come back.

I would like Edward James Olmos to play Captain Hook.

so, what I'm getting from this is that maybe Bae was stuck in neverland all this time!?

That would imply that he's still a child, then.

It seems as though characters not caught up in the first spell are going to be invading storybrooke.

Are we sure they weren't included? There were an awful lot of people at the town meeting whose identities haven't been disclosed yet...

Singlebrooke was almost funny, but it did make me hope that we would get to see Paul Scheer in the show at some point. He could, for example, be one of Captain Hook's goofy crew members.

That would be awesome! Maybe Smee?

Bob Hoskins has kind of owned the live-action Smee at this point.
