“Once is home to everyone and there’s an open invitation for every actor who has been on the show to come back in the finale, so we’ll see who is available” added the co-creator.

“If the question is ‘Will the final two hours remind us of the first six years, then the answer is ‘Yes’,” exclaimed Kitsis.

There was some buzz that Jennifer Morrison was definitely making a return, however, Kitsis closed that rumor down by exclaiming, “That hasn’t been confirmed.”

Other teases about the rest of this season: the Lana Parrilla-directed episode 17 “Chosen” will be a Zelena-centric one. “It felt like having one sister direct the other sister,” said Horowitz. In addition, there will not be another musical episode, which was a high point for fans last season.

Jared Gilmore, who briefly appeared in the rebooted seventh season’s premiere, is slated to return in episode 20 as young Henry Mills, executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis told press following a screening of Friday’s midseason return.

“We’re very excited to have Jared back,” Horowitz says. “He is, in a lot of ways, the heart and soul of this show. He grew up literally on the show, so it’s really wonderful to see him back.”

The hour, which centers around Regina (Lana Parrilla) and Henry, flashes back to the time before Henry left Storybrooke, paving the way for Gilmore to once again take up the mantle of young Henry, who has been portrayed as an adult by Andrew J. West this season. “At the opening of the year, when we saw him get on the motorcycle, it was like a different Jared,” Kitsis notes. “We’re going to show an episode with him before that in Storybrooke with Regina.”

“We think it’s a really sweet, emotional mother-son story, ” Horowitz adds.
