Eduardo, Eddy, Adam and I talked a lot about it, knowing that this season was going to be based in Storybrooke and that we’re like coming home and their adventures were always going to originate in Storybrooke. And for Emma, you know when she first came to Storybrooke she had four boxes and we really stuck to that. Where she rewears things and she only had however many shirts and a few jackets and the same jeans and the same pair of boots and kind of kept it really simple for a really long time.
