Fans are excited that they will finally be getting to see a beloved fairytale character, Ariel, in the upcoming third season of "Once Upon a Time." On Aug. 21 Wetpaint reports that Ariel will be making her big splash to the small screen in the sixth episode of the season. While some fans are upset that she won't be swimming in earlier in the season, there are going to be over a dozen episodes so it is still relatively early in.
While there are few details about exactly how Ariel will come to be on the show, dhow runner Eddy Kitsis says that she will be coming to Neverland, presumably in Mermaid Lagoon, where other mermaids will also be introduced, but they aren't as nice as Ariel. Anyone that has seen the famous movie or read the children's books know that Ariel's sisters aren't very nice and are rather snobby, which we can only presume the rest of the mermaids to be. Kitsis also confirms that other "Little Mermaid" pals will be joined by Ariel, namely her arch nemesis, Ursela, and Prince Eric.
What fans might find the most surprising is that Ariel will have a surprising connection to a Neverland character that we already know. The most logical choices are Captain Hook, or Peter Pan. According to the Pan story, the mermaids loved Peter and all fancied him. While Hook is the more handsome choice in the show, he isn't the greatest of guys so his connection would be surprising.
Who do you think Ariel is linked to?
