When Emma decides to stay in Storybrooke, the clock of the Tower finally continue walking. From that moment begin to change things in the town. For example, people now dare to stand up against Regina faster.

Although it initially seems as if Regina is the only one who knows of its existence as a fairytale character, it appears as the series progresses that multiple inhabitants remember things consciously or not. Jefferson remembers his life as Mad Hatter. According to him is that the punishment that has given him the curse. In addition, catch Sheriff Graham and David patches on their past, they already know that in the first instance not to place right away. Mr. Gold also remembers that he is actually Rumplestiltskin. His memory comes back as soon as Emma presents itself to him.

As Emma breaks the curse, remembering all the inhabitants themselves their true identities. Storybrooke hides the border that the outside world disappears, making outsiders the town now also can trace. For the fairytale characters, however, it is difficult to cross the border, because who Storybrooke leave, loses his memory again. At the end of the second season makes Belle there with a spell of Mr. Gold for that Storybrooke cannot be found again, in order to avert danger of the outside world.

Neverland is based on the world of Peter Pan, but then much darker. It is a place where fantasy and faith are very important. Peter Pan is the ruler of Neverland. His shadow collects orphan boys all over the world, known as the Lost Boys for Pan work. Many of them stay there against their will. Characters who have been there, are Captain Hook, Smee, Wendy Darling, William Baelfire and Rumplestiltskin. In the third season is Henry abducted to Neverland, because Peter Pan needs him for still unknown reasons. This makes also Emma, Mary Margaret, David, Regina, Greg and Tamara have set foot on Neverland. In addition to the Lost Boys and Peter Pan live mermaids, which is generally not so kind.

Booth in Storybrooke arrives, he adds his own story (that of Pinnochio) far. In addition to the featured stories from the Enchanted Forest, let the book every now and then also see a glimpse of other countries, such as Oz. This could mean that Oz still attention later in the series.

Who has written the book of Henry, is so far unknown. Fans speculate that Rumplestiltskin, August w. Booth, or Mother Superior might be the writer, since they seem to know much about the other fairy-tale characters. In addition he also a logical thought, because August actually writer of job is. Some fans think, however, that the writer is not yet in the series occurred and others suspect that the book simply a product of the curse is.

  • ABC brings for each new character in Once Upon a Time a so-called "casting call" out. Describes the character of the new role described. Often used ABC for these characters code names, so that fans don't immediately realise what new role there is selected and there is a surprise element remains. Examples of code names are Magnolia (Mulan), Anastasia (Princess Aurora), Jack (Neal Cassidy), Rufio (Peter Pan), Heidi (Wendy Darling), Barrett (Greg Mendell), Violet (Tinker Bell) and Helena (Jack).
