Once Upon A Time Season 7 is going to be different, especially with a lot of the main stars leaving the show. After the events of the Season 6 finale, fans are wondering what is going to happen when the ABC series returns. There are also a lot of theories going around, including whether Moana is Lucy’s mother and if Narnia will be the theme of the upcoming season. Executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis have responded to the speculations.
Possible OUAT spoilers are ahead. Do not continue reading if you don’t want to know what could happen in the series.
As fans know, when Once Upon A Time returns with Season 7, Henry will be all grown up with a daughter, Lucy. Some fans believe there was a clue in the finale that reveals the identity of Lucy’s mother. On the portal door, there was a Polynesian mask. This has led to some viewers convinced it was a sign that Lucy’s mother is Moana. Entertainment Weekly asked Adam Horowitz if it was a hint. However, the executive producer believes that fans are reading too much into it.
“To examine those doors as clues to what Season 7 would be is not necessarily what they were there for. It’s more of a symbolic thing that’s telling us how big our universe is and that there are many places left to be explored.”
So, if Moana isn’t Lucy’s mother in Once Upon A Time, when will fans find out who is? According to The Wrap, Horowitz explained she will be revealed in the Season 7 premiere. The only clues the executive producer would share is that Lucy’s mother is from the fairy tale realm. He also teased that Henry and this woman had an epic love story, just like Snow and Charming.
“We can’t tell you who her mother is. What we can tell you is that Henry and that mother is going to be an epic romance in the tradition of Snow and Charming.”
Another theory for Season 7 is that it might have a Narnia theme. One fan shared this theory with TV Line because the name of Henry’s daughter is Lucy. However, that is another speculation that has been shot down by the executive producers. They told the publication that the theme has nothing to do with Narnia.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, there are only three main cast members that are staying with OUAT next season. Those include Lana Parrilla, Robert Carlyle, and Colin O’Donoghue. Even though many of the stars are not returning, they have all agreed to appear in one episode during Season 7. Since Henry will be grown up, Jared Gilmore will not longer be playing the role. It was handed to Andrew J. West, known as Gareth of Terminus from The Walking Dead.
Even though Henry will be an adult in Season 7 of Once Upon A Time, Regina Mills, Rumple, and Hook will not have aged at all. That is something else that will be explained when the show returns to ABC.
“The age and how Henry is as old as he is without everyone else is dealt with right away as we set up the new paradigm. I think it was purposefully oblique [in the Season 6 finale] but we have a plan in place and we’re also allowing Rumple, Hook, and the Evil Queen to be in it.”
Who do you think Lucy’s mother will be? Do you have any theories regarding the theme of Season 7? There is no date set for the return of Once Upon A Time yet, but it should come back to ABC later this year.
