‘Once Upon a Time’ season 4: Patrick Fishler good or bad in battle against Queens, Rumple

Once Upon a Time doesn’t return to ABC for the second half of season four until next month, but fans are excited about the casting of former Mad Men star Patrick Fischler. Of course, the show’s creators are creating a ton of buzz about the adventures for Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, Robert Carlyle and company.

During the back half of Season 4, the focus will be on Rumpelstiltskin and the Queens of Darkness (Maleficent, Ursula, and Cruella de Vil) as they search for a way to get their own happy endings. Lost alum Patrick Fischler will recur during Season 4B, but the question remains if he will be helping or thwarting Rumple and the Queens.

Once Upon a Time season 4 bannerAccording to TVLine, the character that Fischler will be playing “comes across as well-intentioned but is actually a quick-witted, arrogant man with reckless impulses. He will appear in both the fairytale land and Storybrooke,” thus meaning that he has to be a fairytale character of some sort and not an outside threat like Greg and Tamara were back in Season 2.

Once Upon a Time executive producer Adam Horowitz continues to tease the fans on social media site Twitter with details on the upcoming second half of season 4. In a recent post, Adam Horowitz revealed the title for the upcoming Season 4, episode 16:

“Here’s another #OnceUponATime #titlespoiler — hope to see ya March 1st!” Horowitz posted on his Twitter account @AdamHorowitzLA

A Matt Carter report suggests that the episode will be focused on Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold (Carlyle) since the OUAT character has a plan, which is to find “The Author,” in order for the villains to have a happy ending. In the mid-season finale episode, Belle (Emilie de Ravin) kicked Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold/The Dark One out of Storybrooke after finding out her husband’s treachery and evil plans.

In an ETOnline report, Adam Horowitz teased that “Rumbelle” will be apart when the ABC fairy tale drama series return but it does not mean that their story is already over. “What I’ll say about this, in all seriousness for the Rumbelle fans, is that definitely Rumple and Belle are not over,” the executive producer stated.

Co-executive producer Edward Kitsis added that “Rumbelle” is a complicated relationship. “I know that we’re in the middle of the book, and for us we are telling a bigger story. What we loved [in the winter finale] was seeing Belle’s strength. And we set up Rumple’s weakness,” Kitsis explained.

Once Upon a Time returns March 1 at 8pm ET on ABC.
