The "Once Upon a Time" season 3 finale is airing Sunday night and fans are looking forward to an exciting episode. So what can be expected on the finale? On May 10, Enstars posted some interesting information about the upcoming episode. Also, other sources online have posted sneak peeks and co-creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz have revealed some teasers.

Most shows would kill off a villain on the finale, but last week "OUAT" fans saw Zelena die at the hands of Rumple. At least, that is what appeared to have happened. Kitsis and Horowitz recently spoke to TV Guide. When Zelena's possible survival was brought up, Kitsis said that she was defeated. But does "defeated" mean the same thing as "dead?" The co-creator teased that it looks like she is dead, but there wasn't a body, which opens up the possibility of Zelena resurfacing in the future.

Clarification on Zelena's fate may have been revealed in the ABC press release, Enstars wrote. The website stated that it showed Rebecca Mader's name under the guest cast list for the first part of the two-part finale, in the episode titled "Snow Drifts." However, this doesn't necessarily mean that Zelena survived. It does lead fans to speculate that she might show up in some way, perhaps as a memory or a flashback.

Rumple's secret is going to become a very big problem. Will Belle find out what he did and will it affect their relationship? The answer to that isn't known, but spoiler reports have teased that the news of Zelena not being in her jail cell will spread throughout Storybrooke quickly and Kitsis did say in regards to Rumple that secrets never end well.

Hook and Emma will go back in time and will arrive in the Enchanted Forest. The problem with time travel is that it is easy to accidentally change something, which can completely change the future. WetPaint reported that Hook and Emma do accidentally change something while in the past. However, they are going to attempt to make everything right before they come back to the present. WetPaint also brought up a good point,

"It's easy to see how this could lead to a plot where they think they've put everything back right, but actually something small was still different, and that ended up sending one character down a very different road, so that when they show up in the present, someone who used to be a hero is a villain."

Other things that fans can expect is a major character death and finding out the name of David and Mary Margaret's baby boy. It has been teased for months that there will be a wedding and fans are busy speculating on which characters will marry. Kitsis also revealed that Hook and Emma are going to be in a lot of danger on the final two episodes.

The season 3 finale of "Once Upon a Time" consists of two episodes, titled "Snow Drifts" and "No Place Like Home." It has been said that it will feel more like a movie and that it will deliver a satisfying climax. For fans who have had questions throughout the season, it is being promised that the finale will provide answers.
