Dr Whale is a mysterious character in his own right. We don’t yet know what his Fairytale Land alter ego is. Some think he’s Captain Hook and that the casting of Colin O’Donoghue is just to throw the fans off the scent.
I took these pictures of David Anders filming scenes in Storybrooke on Thursday August 30th, but am only getting around to posting them now.
David Anders had already filmed some scenes with Josh Dallas outside of Granny’s Diner during the morning, but in the afternoon he filmed some solo scenes and scenes with Robert Carlyle (Mr. Gold).
Dr Whale was seen walking down the street looking a bit worse for wear and carrying a blue cooler box. It’s not clear what was inside the box, but I’m sure it has something to do with his arm. The lid of the blue box was white, and blood could be seen on it. Could it be someones heart? Or, something else?
I posted a teaser picture of Dr Whale with his arm covered up to Twitter and people have been commenting that it could be just David Anders putting his coat on. Well, the pictures in the gallery below show that he wasn’t just putting his coat on, but covering up his arm. You can clearly see that he has a “green screen” sleeve on and that the shirt he is wearing has the arm ripped close to the shoulder. Is this how he becomes Captain Hook?
I think it’s doubtful that he is Captain Hook though.
David filmed scenes of him entering Mr. Gold’s Pawnbroker store in Storybrooke looking all sweaty and tired with the cooler over his shoulder. I would love to hear what you think was in the cooler box and who you think Dr Whale is.
Season 2 of Once Upon a Time will air on Sunday, September 30th at 7pm on CTV in Canada.
