Once Upon a time: Popular character will die

Posted by

Once Upon a Time were filming at St. Mary’s church in West Vancouver yesterday with the circus at the parking lot of “Little People” daycare.

It was a relatively small crew, but the scene they were filming was a big one.

We have EXCLUSIVE news that a beloved character in the show will die. We’re not going to reveal to you who it is that kicks the bucket, but it’s an intense scene. We’re not going to reveal to you who was at the filming yesterday either, because it might give away too much.

Could the filming inside the church be the funeral for this character? Well, you’re all going to have to wait and see.

    Hook or Regina? PLEASE, I can’t stand them.

  3. Kara says:

    It better be Snow. Or Charming. Just someone who isn’t Regina or Hook I’d be fine with.

    • Sarah says:

      I don’t want it to be Snow or Charming anyone thats a part of that family for that matter. I also don’t want it to be any of the other core characters either. I’d prefer it be a popular but recurring character.

  4. Allen says:

    whatttttttt?????? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO :((

  5. j says:

    i am seriously confused — i grew up in west van and I have no idea where this church is? are you talking about the one is kerrisdale?

  6. Sarah says:

    Is there anyway if I promise not to say anything and i give you my e-mail address or something that you could tell me. You might as well say who since you brought it up.

    dead neal dead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How about no, Ryan. Hook is a fan favorite and has just been so brilliant this season. Besides, I really can’t see them killing him off when Hook/Emma was just nominated for a People’s Choice award.

    • anna says:

      how about no, arthur. hook is fans NO ONE. rumple and regina ARE fans favorites. always were and always will be. the show went down when hook appeared.
      pls let it be him. just who cares they always can find another pretty face and he’s a cartoon this season not a character anyway.

      • Arthur says:

        Oh, you’re hilarious, child. Hook’s arrival and the ratings slump are not related at all. In fact, “Good Form” got a 5% boost in ratings, even going head to head against a major sporting event. The media bloody loves him, and you know what? There can be more than a handful of fan favorites. A&E seem to love him, and he’s more than just a pretty face. He’s been pretty damn integral this season in navigating Neverland and, you know, helping everyone with no benefit to himself. With his backstory getting fleshed out more, he’s definitely one of the most interesting characters on the show. You just sound like a bitter Swanfire fangirl who can’t deal with all the media attention that Hook is getting. Let it go.

      • Barbara says:

        You’re crazy, right? Hook is a fan favorite. Regina and Rumple as well.

    • Thessa says:

      I agree with you Arthur! C’mon guys, they can’t axed him out otherwise they’ll receive another death threats from hookers! And Hook is amazing! He’s sexy! just sayin’

  9. Jess says:

    PleasebeNealpleasebeNeal PLEASE BE NEAL!!!!!!

  10. Angi says:

    It better not be Hook.

  11. Helena says:

    God, please let it be Hook. Anyone but Rum or Belle.

  12. joesham says:

    Hopefully Neal

  13. Lilly says:

    Oh no ! I hope is not Charming, Snow & Regina ! :( Better is Neal !

  14. Daniela says:

    King George !

  15. Gene says:

    I wish it was Hook but I know that won’t happen.

  16. Anon says:

    You’ve said the words popular and beloved, but not ‘main’ or ‘central’ so I don’t think it will be anyone too important, certainly no one who’s a regular cast member. My bet actually goes to Ruby; a beloved character, the actress has left the show anyway, and they’ll need to have a reason why we never see Ruby in the diner any more. I actually wish they would have the guts to kill off someone important.

  17. Helena says:

    Please, don’t be Belle!!!!!

  18. faith says:

    if they kill Regina i will stop watching not that it matter bye

  19. tess says:

    Neal would be my choice – least fav character. But i suspect it will be the Blue Fairy.

  20. Ashten says:

    It says POPULAR character. Not main character. I severely doubt it will be the Charmings or Regina/Rumple. I lot of the base would stop watching. This isn’t Game of Thrones guys, let’s be realistic.

  21. Maggie says:

    STOP SAYING IT BETTER BE SNOW. I am SICK AND TIRED of people hating on Snow, claiming that she wants to entirely forget about her relationship with Emma. THAT’S NOT WHAT SHE SAID. Stop hating on her just because she wants to have another child. There’s nothing wrong with that. Also stop hating on her for telling the secret about Neal. She’s Snow White. She thrives off of honesty and goodness and forgiveness. She said so herself that she’s never lied to Emma before, and she wasn’t going to start then. She was keeping her daughter’s best interests at heart.

    As far as who I think will die.. It could be Peter Pan, it could be Ruby. Those are my theories and I’m sticking to them.

  22. TDC says:

    Not Regina. Anyone but Regina please.

  23. jamie says:

    let is be hook or any of the charmings. just don’t give a f about any of them.

  24. anna says:

    pls NOT rumple, belle, neal, emma or regina. you may kill the rest of ”main” cast. or all of them. I don’t care.

  25. Maggie says:

    My bets are on August. And the Blue Fairy will do it.

  26. Sandy says:

    Noooo :( I hope not the Charmings…

  27. ardev says:

    I hope it’s one of their newest auditions coughHOOKcough. I didn’t start show to watch him. actually I dropped it because of him can’t stand him and his stupid innuendos. murderer, women abuser, kidnapper, SLIME. and now they try to make a hero out of this.. just ugh

  28. Mikah says:

    I think it will be Neal, because Emma needs and wants to move on from him.

    I also think it could be Hook although I will cry for days if it is. It might be him because if Emma chooses Hook then everyone shipping Captain Swan will be on a rampage. If he dies, then Emma will be all sad and depressed and maybe he’ll die in her arms and she’ll finally express the feeling she has for him to him. That would be a semi-acceptable ending to the oh so great pirate.
    But I REALLY do NOT want it to be Hook.

    It’s going to be Neal or Hook. Probably and hopefully Neal. And whichever one it is he is going to die in Emma’s arm if he has time left at the end of his life for that.

    But who knows? Maybe it’s going to be the episode when they go back to Storybrooke aand they are going to kill one of the characters still left there… Belle maybe? Ruby?

    It could be anyone.

  29. Mikah says:

    You think it will be Snow? Nooo. She’s Emma’s mom. She can’t die. No:(

    Maybe Neal.
    Or Hook, please no.
    Maybe it will be Rumple.
    Or David… maybe they were filming the episode where they were leaving the island…?
    Or Snow.
    Or EMMA… lol no.
    Or Belle.
    Or Red/Ruby.
    Or anyone.

  30. Rachelle says:

    Anyone BUT Regina… NOT REGINA, she’s the reson i keep watching the show :) NOT HER!! Or else i’m out, she’s been amazing in her acting lately :D

  31. mynameis says:

    Hook needs to go. The writers are doing nothing but fanservice with him and Emma and it’s ruining the show. So far, they’ve made this entire season about how to force them together. And it really is SO forced it’s cringy to watch. They really have no chemistry which makes it even more obvious how forced it is. And the actors, particularly JMo seem uncomfortable together. The annoying thing is the writers are only doing it because it’s popular with a couple of teenagers and they don’t seem to care how dumb it is as long as it saves their show.
    They completely rewrote the Hook character to make this ship happen and they’ve made Emma look utterly stupid. I’m sure they’d like us to forget s2. Especially you know, the part where Hook was 100% on board with leaving Emma to rot in a cell and heading off to Storybrook with Cora. Emma certainly seems to have forgotten and I’m sure the shippers are willing to pretend that it didn’t happen but the rest of us aren’t buying this relationship.
    These guys need to stop going online and just write the show without knowing what the audience are pushing for. There’s no way I’m buying that they were intending on a Hook/Emma romance all along.

    IT BE BE RUMPLESTILTSKIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. Giennied says:

    They say that one of the men on the show is about to get his own series and that is why they are keeping it close to the vest.

  34. Kristina says:

    If it’s Neal I swear to God, i gonna kill the writers! He’s been through enough dying already! Everybody hating on him is not fair! He is a good man!

    I hope nobody dies! and that this rumor is false!

  35. kelly says:

    Hook’s been a let down since he came but he is a favorite to some so I’m keeping my fingers crossed it’s him.

  36. Cindie says:

    I hope it’s Whale or Neal, terrible actors (sorry, guys, nothing personal) and annoying characters that have nothing else to do for the plot.

    It’s probably Ruby, though, like another comment said, because she won’t be around anymore and they have to explain that.

    At first I thought it’d be Archie, but it’d be pretty redundant to have him die all over again, even if this time is permanent.

    Maybe it’s Hook? Collin became a father recently, it wouldn’t be shocking if he wants to leave the show to be with his first son and his family.

  37. Lydia says:

    I don’t think it’s any of the people who are at Neverland right now. It’ll be someone who was in storybrooke, def not one of the main cast (Regina Henry Emma Snow Charming Rumple). Key word is POPULAR character. not main!

  38. Marty says:

    It clearly says “to die on the show”.. Nobody is talking of “leaving” the show… ;) Just saying.

  39. Jon says:

    I wish you would give us pictures! I don’t know about anyone else, but I come here for spoilers!!! Even if the plot is partially spoiled, we wouldn’t know how it happened or the dialog between characters!

  40. Rachel says:

    If they have the audacity to kill off Regina, I swear to God that I will stop watching the show.

  41. Anna says:

    Of course it won’t be Regina. Then show over. Lover her or hate her, she is pretty much the show.
    And unfortunately of course it won’t be Hook. Then how are they gonna have the tiring cliché of pretty bad boy falling for the heroine? They didn’t bring this storyline out of thin air & sped it up to the point it makes no sense just to end it like this. I’m guessing it won’t be Neal either, not that anyone would miss him, but it’d make even more obvious the Emma/Hook endgame.

    So yeah, I’m gonna agree with the “anon” that said about Ruby. Or maybe another minor character. And the chances are it’s going to get spoiled by the time the episode reaches our screens. (It’s OUAt we are talking about. They did say #OneWillDie for 2×16 & it was not difficult then to guess who it’d be.)

  42. lauhall says:

    I’ll go with Neal, I’m not a big fan of him anyway, but I bet it’ll be Ruby or Granny, they can’t kill Archie in two different seasons. Or maybe they should kill Henry, and then there’s nothing that ties the Charmings to Regina, and they’ll be enemies again, that could actually work

  43. Ashley says:

    Anyone but Regina! Regina is the damn life of that show. I want it to be Neal or Hook. Can’t stand either of them. Wish it was Snow too but I know that won’t happen

  44. haley says:

    better not be hook if it is i will stop watching this show………eventually ill watch it again. what if its rumple!!!!!

  45. Anon says:

    No, anon, it’s not Ruby.
    For starters, she’s still filming her show and won’t appear until 3×14 at the earliest.
    Second, I doubt the writers would bring her character back just to kill her, after seeing the uproar that her leaving caused back in May.
    Third, the showrunners said in an interview that Ruby will be prominent throughout the second half of the season when she does return. Her show is a limited series and only recieves 13 episodes per season.
    Fourth, her series is produced by ABC studios, and they gave her the okay to work on both shows.
    Lastly, she’s already part of a storyline which was merely MOVED out of the way to accomodate the Neverland arc. And judging by David Anders’ comment on Twitter, the writers are finally going to be returning to that in the second half.

  47. MariAnne says:

    Oh no… if it is popular and beloved… it could be anyone! But i have a feeling that it is gonna be Belle, i don’t know why

  48. Sharon says:

    Please don’t kill Archie, Blue or any of the dwarves!!!!!!!!!

  49. CW says:

    *fingers crossed* neal, neal, neal, neal

  50. me says:

    I agree with Anon, it’s probably going to be Ruby, seeing as Meghan Ory is supposed to come back but she isn’t really on the show anymore.

  51. Please don’t kill Regina I love her!!!
    Kill snow or rumple ,kill the snitch !
    But what would happen if charming died , would Regina feel some contentment and how would they break the news to little Henry?

  52. Doc says:

    The Blue Fairy did say Archie would live only long enough to help Geppetto. Geppetto has got little Pinocchio back now. Archie should have been dead long ago…. But this will be his 2nd funeral on the show! hahaa!… sorry Raph!

    If not Archie, I gotta go with Hook! His arch is now played out. SwanFire is back,.. Capt’Swan looks like it will stay in NL forever now….

  53. Regina says:

    OMG ! Could be Archie ? Again ?

  54. Nicole MS says:

    Please not Belle nor Rumple!!! I’d be sad for any number of characters to be the one that dies, but I’d be crushed to see it be Belle or Rumple. I’m not sure how I’d continue with the show if it were either of them.

  55. Emma says:

    NO NO NO IT BETTER NOT BE Rumple, Belle or Neal

  56. Niah says:

    Henry should die in once upon a time! I hate that kid!

  57. Christine says:

    If it’s Rumple or Belle then it’s game over for me.. I couldn’t get over either of them dying :( I really hope it’s Neal.. I feel like that would be the easiest to get over!

    • Gwen says:

      I agree! If Rumple or Belle die, I don’t know how I will survive. But then again, if they kill Rumple, the show might lose a lot of viewers, since he’s a fan favorite.

  58. jimj58 says:

    It’s not Hook. If they wanted to honour him with a funeral he’d be buried at sea like his brother and Milah were.

  59. Charlotte says:

    Not Hook ! I really hope this is not him …

  60. Nikita says:

    I’m pretty sure it’s charming… I hope it isn’t hook, regina, emma, rumple or belle… but charming can’t leave neverland or he’ll die…

  61. Mandy says:

    Pretty sure it’s Hook. Especially if Swan Thief is end game. It’s like… where does Hook go from there? It’s not likely he’ll fall in love again, after Milah and then if he loses Emma too. So the only way to go is to make things up to Baelfire and Rumple (and to do it for Emma) and rescue Henry in some dramatic way and die in the process. Thus finishing his redemption arc by him dying a beloved hero.

    • Thessa says:

      I think it’ll be Peter Pan. There are spoilers that Pan was stabbed at the back by Rumple and Rumple’s father appeared.

  62. laulau says:

    je veux pas que se soit Regina ni un dés 7 nains :'(

  63. Laurène says:

    I do not want to either Regina or a dice seven dwarfs.

  64. Allen says:

    not the charmings, regina, rumple, hook, belle please and i will be okay.


  65. frogg says:

    pleeease DON’T KILL HOOK !

  66. Alison says:

    HOOK PLEASE BE HOOK!!!!!!!!!! Okay so Hook has fans well so did Graham in fact Graham had a larger fan base then Hook so it is possible

  67. It’s game over for me if Emma dies but kill someone who has a more susceptible reason of dying like rumple or charming

  68. anon says:

    Captain Swan is *confirmed* endgame apparently so it seems rational that the death is going to be Neal. Aside from Emma’s link to Neal there’s also one to Hook and with the death of him it would bring the two closer together not to mention allow Hook to step in for Henry like he did with Neal. Rumble’s undoing is not Henry, it’s the loss of his son; the only person he truly loves.

  69. Erik says:

    I think that it is Neal who is dying because of all of the spoiler photos I’ve seen for episode 11 and on, I haven’t seen Neal in a single one of them. Regina was on the ground in one of them but that’s it. The producers said one major character wasn’t coming back from Neverland and since I’ve seen photos of everyone but Neal returning to Storybrooke, so I think they are eithering mourning the fact he has to stay in Neverland, or he’s dead.

  70. MM says:

    It’s Rumpel for sure! or Blue, but she’s dead already, so probably Mr Gold bites the dust

  71. wellheythere says:

    AS long as it isnt Hook, Emma, Henry, Regina, or Rumple I’m fine. Also, I need Emma/Killian to just happen already!

  72. Swanfire is True Love says:

    I’m so sad Rumple died! At least it wasn’t Neal, although I was hoping it would be Hook (I hate him!).

  73. Cs_shipper says:

    Ok just to be sure this was for neal right if not i will cry
