“We wanted a Peggy Sue Got Married moment,” Kitsis tells EW, explaining that Emma would’ve seen Graham when she was locked up in the Evil Queen’s castle. “He would’ve been one of the guards because it would’ve been during that period,” adds Horowitz. “She would’ve seen him, and it would’ve been heartbreaking for her because she would’ve wanted to reach out to him, but knowing that—because she’s on a mission—she couldn’t. It wasn’t a big plot thing, but it was an emotional moment that we wanted to do.”
"For all your confidence, I think you’ve seen yourself as the plaything of others. I know you were handed to me like an object, a punch line for what we both thought was a cruel joke. But this marriage is no longer something that happened to me. It’s… You are what I want."
"I can’t believe that guy recognised me. That’s the point I’ve been trying to make for the last 200 miles.”
