OUAT – Closeup of Regina’s “playground” plans

Here is a screencap of Regina’s playground plans:

Very interesting design, isn’t it? From this top view it looks like something is bursting up from underground, something sinister that is.

It also looks like parts of it has stairs. What other place that Regina has been in Storybrooke has had stairs? Hmm, I wonder what other use Regina has for this “playground”?

What do you think? Please let us know in the comments.

OUAT – What do these strange keys from Regina’s office unlock? Update: Partially Answered

From the OUAT Fan Podcast Deputy Desk:

When Emma and Sydney are searching Regina’s office, they uncover a set of strange and almost fairy tale like set of keys in one of her drawers.

What do you think these keys unlock? Underground tunnels from her office to other places? What if there are tunnels that connect to the boarded up Library? Does Regina have another vault or another secret place to hide items from Fairy Tale Land? Or maybe they are just something to throw Emma off the track of discovering Regina’s secrets?

What do you think these keys are for?

Tell us what you think in the comments below.

— We have been alerted that at least one of the keys was used on a certain box. A box in Fairy Tale Land. A box in Fairy Tale Land that had two deadly asps in it:

Now, what do the rest of the keys open, Hmm?

OUAT – A Cool Opportunity from our OUAT fan friend, Gareth

When I jumped into the OUAT fan webspace, Gareth’s was new. Over time, it has come together as a great fan site. We want to support others in OUAT fandom, and Gareth has a great opportunity to share with us.

“Head to the fan site on the 12th February 2012 for real time discussion as 1×12 airs live. The long awaited ‘Beauty & The Beast’ episode, ‘Skin Deep’.

Moderation of the live stream will begin from 7.30pm EST and we will live blog right through the episode.

I will then be heading over to, where I have been invited by Barbara Barnett to take part in a post show discussion of the episode with herself and Jane Espenson. We will advertise the direct link to the Blog Critics Live discussion nearer the time. It will begin at 9PM EST.

As stated, Once Upon A Time writer Jane Espenson will be joining the discussion on Blog Critics, so it would be awesome if some of the fan site members could send in questions for me to put to her, as well as heading over to Blog Critics to join the discussion and hear what Jane has to say about the episode. It should be a very interesting and informative evening.

Please try to find the time to join us for this event. The last one was a massive success with over 100 viewers and more than 200 comments contributed.

You can set yourself a personal reminder for this event over at the fan site.”
