11:11 AM – The first question is about a musical episode. “I think we’d like to do a musical episode on ice,” Kitsis says.
11:12 AM – “The last thing we saw was the curse wrecking through the castle, so who knows if there’s anything to go back to,” Horowitz says about actually going back to the fairytale location.
11:13 AM – “As an audience member, it’s exactly what I would want to see,” Ginnifer Goodwin says of the first few scripts of season 2.

Jennifer Morrison says she knows the identity of her character’s baby daddy is. “I think people will be very excited to see that storyline play out, for sure,” Morrison says of his identity.
11:17 AM – “We’re still going to go back and forth and meet new people along the way,” Kitsis says of continuing the same storytelling format in season 2.
