When the finale of season 2 of “Once Upon A Time” aired, it was clear there was more to this Neverland connection than meets the eye. According to a May 30 report on Enstarz, Rumplestiltskin may have ties to the island of Lost Boys and their leader.
Show runners Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis have been talking about introducing Peter Pan in season 3 for some time. They had to work out the details to bring this character into the storyline and promise he will be played by a new male addition to the cast.
Obviously Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold has a past with Captain Hook since Hook lured Rumple’s wife away. We also know that when Baelfire left Fairy Tale Land through the portal as a boy, he wound up for a brief time with Hook. But is there more?
“In true Mr. Gold/Rumple style, he knows more than Greg and Tamara,” Kitsis and Horowitz said, “and there’s certainly the implication that there’s a history there, one we’re eager to unfold.”
“Our approach to Peter Pan is one we’re super-excited about,” Horowitz told TVLine.com, “We knew we wanted to build to what we’re about to do in Season 3.”
We also learned in the finale that the Lost Boys were bringing Baelfire to “him,” presumably Peter Pan because they hoped he was the boy Pan sought. However, when compared to the sketch they had, it was clear Baelfire was not the boy wanted after all. It was Henry and that is why Tamara and Greg kidnapped him and took him to Neverland.
So what does Peter Pan want with Rumplestiltskin’s grandson? Does Mr. Gold know the answer but chooses to keep it to himself for now? Given the clues from the show’s creators, it’s likely he does and is.
“Once Upon A Time” returns to television in fall 2013. In the meantime, keep checking back for more details, updates and spoilers.
