'Once Upon a Time' season 3 spoilers: The Wicked Witch's backstory

See also

By now "Once Upon a Time" fans know that the Wicked Witch will be the newest villain in Storybrooke, but why has she come and what is her issue with the Evil Queen? On Feb. 2, Spoilers Guide revealed some information about the Wicked Witch as well as why Rose McGowan will be playing a young Cora, despite the character dying back in season 2.

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

Viewers will find out the Wicked Witch's backstory on episode 16, titled "It's Not Easy Being Green." Co-creator Adam Horowitz said,

“She’s got a whole backstory and mythology. We used the original [L. Frank Baum] book as a jumping-off point, and then spun her in a hopefully unique, Once Upon a Time way.”

Unfortunately, fans will have to wait until the second to last episode in season 3 to discover the backstory and what her issue with the Evil Queen is. Some viewers are speculating that it may have to do with Robin Hood. It wouldn't be the first time that two women fought over a man, but of course this is just a theory.

It was recently revealed that Rose McGowan will be returning to play young Cora. This is a bit confusing because Cora died in season 2, but she is needed to tell the backstory of the Wicked Witch.

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