Once Upon a Time casts Captain Nemo — exclusive (x)

Once Upon a Time has cast Faran Tahir as the famed Captain Nemo from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, EW has learned exclusively.

The Dallas and Warehouse 13 alum will play the hardened leader of the Nautilus submarine, who’s a zealous believer in a cause that takes him from 20,000 leagues under the sea to the destiny that he won’t let anyone prevent him from achieving.

“We’re thrilled to give a Once Upon a Time spin to the classic character of Captain Nemo from one of our favorite Disney films,20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,” executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis say. “We’re excited to see his mythology merge with Storybrooke’s own captain — Hook [Colin O’Donohue]. If for no other reason than to see the Jolly Roger go up against a submarine.”

The news comes in the wake of the EPs teasing at Comic-Con that season 6 would uncover some surprising secrets from Hook’s past. Captain Nemo also enters the scene just as OUAT is introducing the Land of Untold Stories, opening up the world of the show beyond the fairy tale characters we’ve come to know and love.

Tahir joins the growing list of newbies in season 6, including Oded Fehr as Jafar, Deniz Akdeniz as Aladdin, Karen David as Princess Jasmine, Giles Matthey as Morpheus, and Craig Horner as the Count of Monte Cristo.

         Possible Quote from the source material – “ Under these dark waters there stretched the bank of shellfish, an inexhaustible field of pearls more than twenty miles long. ” (thanks to this post by @hooks-and-feathers for finding the quote!)
         Colloquial – sailing into dark waters = venturing into the unknown

Once Upon a Time: Emma unearths life-altering secret in season 6 (x)

Once Upon a Time is gearing up for its sixth season, and we know the Evil Queen is back and Aladdin and Jasmine are being introduced, but a logline for the new season has dropped a big clue about what else is coming: Emma (Jennifer Morrison) unearths a life-altering secret — what is it?! Read below:

As Once Upon a Time returns to ABC for its sixth season, so does its classic villain—the Evil Queen. Creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz invite you to join everyone’s favorite fairytale characters as they face-off against this supercharged enemy.  

When Regina split herself in an attempt to eliminate her evil half, she unwittingly released the Evil Queen. Now the Evil Queen is back and ready to leave a trail of destruction in her wake. Meanwhile, Regina is quickly learning that destroying her dark side won’t be that easy, especially when dealing with the consequences of having unleashed the Queen on Storybrooke. Emma learns a life-altering secret that could have serious consequences for her family and loved ones. While the heroes grapple with what Emma is confronting, Henry welcomes the new arrivals from the Land of Untold Stories by pledging to help them complete their tales. But when Snow White, Prince Charming, Regina, Captain Hook and Zelena become entwined in these untold tales, they find themselves haunted by their own unfinished pasts. Meanwhile, after handing Storybrooke over to Mr. Hyde, Mr. Gold continues his quest to wake Belle from her self-induced sleeping curse, in hopes of reuniting with both her and their unborn child.

This season our heroes will be met with many surprises, including Aladdin (Deniz Akdeniz), a former Savior who may be able to offer Emma just the help she needs, Jafar (Oded Fehr), Princess Jasmine (Karin David), the Count of Monte Cristo (Craig Horner) and Morpheus (Giles Matthey). (x)

It’s been fun to watch [Jared Gilmore] grow up.  And now he’s got crushes on girls and asking people out…“
EK:  "What?!”
“I know!”
EK:  "What do you mean!?“
"I know!  Our little boy is growing up!”
EK:  "It is shocking.  When I look at him, he was ten on the pilot, now he’s at least five inches taller.“
AH:  "It’s fifty percent of his life.

This spoiler about Rumple yelling at Belle and leaving her crying makes me so sad and scared… Everytime I hope that things will get better, Adam and Eddy add more drama and angst. It’s been 2 seasons now that Rumple and Belle are in a “bad place”, I’m so tired of this, and I’m especially tired to hope a happiness that never happens. These writers really screwed up one of the most beautiful love story of the history of television. This story gave hope to so many people in the beginning, hope that anyone can be loved. Now, season after season, it gives mostly despair and sadness… I’m really really scared about season 6…

“ONCE UPON A TIME” (Sundays from 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET)


Welcome to Storybrooke, a small town in Maine that you won’t find on any map. This town is full of magic, populated by fairytale characters once cursed by the Evil Queen Regina to live in our world—deprived of their memories and happy endings. Until Emma Swan came to town and changed everything. With the help of her son, Henry, Emma embraced her true identity as the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming—the Savior destined to break the Curse. But even after returning everyone’s memories, Emma’s mission was far from over. With the Curse broken, Mr. Gold (aka Rumplestiltskin) was free to bring magic to Storybrooke. And magic ALWAYS comes with a price…
