'Once Upon a Time': New details on Wicked, Emma and Oz

Spoilers have been pouring in for "Once Upon a Time" season 3 and fans cannot wait for the fairy tale show to come back on the air. On March 5, D23.com posted a ton of information about the Wicked Witch, Emma's romantic relationships and the land of Oz.

Warning: If you do not want to know "Once Upon a Time" season 3 spoilers, then stop reading.

Co-creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz said that fans will learn the Wicked Witch's history, including how she became that way and why she turned green. One question that some fans have is why Zelena is showing up now. Horowitz said,

"If you go back to the pilot, it’s in there. When Emma crashes the car and the book is flipping pages, you’ll see flying monkeys. And you see it again in, I believe, the third episode of the series. We put the Oz mythology into the show at an early stage."

As far as Christopher Gorham's character, Kitsis said that viewers are going to be surprised by his part because there are some twists to it. A previous spoiler stated that while Emma believes he is a good man, there is a lot under the surface.

Fans have been debating whether Emma will end up with Walsh (Gorham's character,) Hook or Neal. This past fall, there was a strong connection between Hook and Emma when they kissed, but if their relationship will continue is difficult to answer. Horowitz explained,

"It’s not as simple as it might seem on the surface. And I suppose it’s never simple when your memories have been taken and magically replaced. For Emma, she’s a person who has huge issues in her life to deal with beyond the romance. And when she does get her memories back, how is she going to deal with that? Is she going to be ready to jump into a romance? Probably not. There are a lot of hoops that need to be jumped through and a lot of things that need to be dealt with first. Primarily, what’s going to happen to her son?"

The co-creators also confirmed that viewers will see Oz on "Once Upon a Time" season 3, but it won't be like Neverland where that was the "OUAT" scene. Instead, fans will see little glimpses of Oz instead of a huge "traveling to another land" type of thing.

There will be Zelena the Wicked Witch, Glinda the Good Witch and flying monkeys. But there will also be other "iconic Oz characters." The question is, will they be from before Dorothy or after?

"Once Upon a Time" season 3 will return on March 9.
