The Dark Swan is coming, and it looks like she isn’t going to be going through this Dark One deal alone.
Entertainment Weekly exclusively shared this new photo from season 5 today. “If you’re going to be the Dark One, gotta learn from the best,” teased executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis.
But just how is it possible that Rumple can train Emma when he has been officially stripped of the title of “The Dark One”?
Perhaps he is only a figment of Emma’s imagination, or, maybe the now human Rumple is just trying to help Emma hone her Dark Swanniness. Who knows.
Also, how and why are they in the Enchanted Forest? And does Emma know what a shower is? Or dry shampoo?
There are just way too many questions, but luckily all will be revealed when Once Upon a Time returns to ABC on September 27.
What exactly do you think is going on here? Let us know in the comments!
