“Once Upon a Time” broke our hearts in Season 5, when the show killed off Robin Hood (Sean Maguire) and erased any possibility of a resurrection.
Poor Regina (Lana Parrilla) lost the love of her life for a second time, and the ramifications of that loss are still showing themselves in this year’s season. Luckily, we will get to see Robin Hood again in Season 6, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed for some good scenes between the now star-crossed lovers.
Screener spoke with Maguire about his impending return to the show and what it will mean for the character of Robin as well as the still grieving Regina.
“Like the audience, I was wondering how can you bring him back — you killed him,” Maguire jokes. “You didn’t just kill him, you made a clear point that he’s really dead. So I was intrigued to see what kind of idea for a story they had, and I thought it was an interesting one.”
Maguire also credits the huge success of the character and the romantic storyline between Robin and Regina to the writers and his co-star Parrilla. He’s definitely aware of the dedicated fan base that developed supporting those two and how deeply saddened they were at Robin’s death.
“That’s credit to the writers and obviously to Lana’s portrayal of Regina and the Evil Queen that people are so passionate about that character,” Maguire says. “I’m hoping in doing this we can give the audience more closure to Robin’s story, and maybe even to Robin and Regina’s dynamic.”
So far, everyone is keeping mum about how and when Robin will return, and what exactly that will mean for Regina, the Evil Queen, and possibly even Zelena (Rebecca Mader) and baby Robin.
We did get Maguire to give us one clue though: don’t expect to see any Robin flashbacks.
“I can tell you that it will not be a flashback because I didn’t want
to see that as an audience member particularly,” Maguire says. “I
thought if the character is going to come back it has to be for
something a little bit more meaningful and Adam [Horowitz] and Eddie
[Kitsis] said right out the gate that it was not going to be a flashback
… Because of the response to the character dying, I think they feel
that they need to give something to the audience that will have an

Taako literally went on a date with Death, which sounds really fucking cool when you put it that way. But he doesn’t really share that kind of stuff, not because he’s embarrassed about his sexuality, but because he doesn’t think it’s anybody’s fucking business. Especially not these clowns’s.
episode is being directed by Andrew McCarthy. Already managed to
humiliate myself on our first meeting. I gushed like a creepy little
girl. St Elmo’s Fire was a the coolest movie to me as a pre-teen.
Probably to young to be watching then but that’s what you get being an
adult-child with an iron will. I was determined to get my hands on the
cool stuff. Truly excited to be working with him.
Siobhan Fallon Hogan is listed on the guest stars as Joyce Linehan for a few episodes. Do you know what role she will be playing in the further episodes?
Yes, I do know who she plays. As in I know what role “Joyce Linehan” has in the episodes and storyline. But besides the cryptic hints I’ve mentioned in some past posts, I’m not answering this. You’ll meet her at the end of ep 5, and will then know. That’s already on Monday.
She plays the same character in all three episodes. So her arc is multi-ep…like for example “Jahelpme” Morris had. She has a very specific role.
If you have seen the ep description, promo, sneak peeks, and read all spoilers, and know what is gonna happen in eps 5, 6 (and 7) then you should not have much trouble guessing what her arc is related to. Or even how it will go…
