In the upcoming episode, which will air on Feb. 17, "Manhattan" is supposed to be very revealing, with a lot of questions answered. Viewers will meet Rumpelstiltskin's son Bae, who Rumpel, Henry and Emma have tracked down in New York City.
Jennifer Morrison, who plays Emma Swan on the show, told TV Line that after reading the script, it felt like a season finale because everything that has been building up happens all at once in "Manhattan."
Many fans have predicted that Bae will turn out to be Neal Cassidy, Henry's father. However, if that speculation proves to be true, that will not be the biggest thing to happen in "Manhattan." One of the "Once Upon a Time" spoilers that she hinted is,
Eddy [Kitsis] and Adam [Horowitz] did an incredible job of setting up the circumstances for everything to come out in a very particular way. I didn't see it all coming this way at all."
With a good show, fans will often assume one thing, then be knocked over with a feather when something completely different happens. Perhaps this could be the case with Bae. Maybe the writers want to make viewers think Bae is Neal Cassidy, just so they can shock them when it turns out he is someone else.
In a sneak peek clip of "Manhattan," Emma is seen chasing after a young man, whose face is hidden with a hoodie. It is assumed that the young man is Bae. When she finally catches him and tackles him to the ground, she looks at his face and with shock, disappointment and a tad of fear, says, "No!"
What do you think of the "Once Upon a Time" spoilers that Jennifer Morrison revealed to TV Line? Do you still think Bae is Neal Cassidy?
