Once Upon a Time‘s Lancelot shall ride again, in Season 3. The big question is: How?
Speaking with HollywoodLife.com, the knight’s portrayer Sinqua Walls, says, “I don’t know exactly how the character’s going to evolve, but we’ll see more parallels, and [get more] answers. And is he really dead, or not?”
After all, when Lancelot was introduced in Season 2 — as an ally of displaced Snow White and Emma in The Fairytale Land That Is — it was ultimately revealed that he was merely Cora in disguise. The evil queen mum then boasted that she had killed the knight before co-opting his form.
But was Cora merely stretching the truth?
This much we know: Coming out of the Season 2 finale, Aurora, Mulan and Prince Phillip have discovered a wounded Neal/Baelfire on the shores of Fairytale Land present. And as confirmed in TVLine’s Inside Line column, it will be explained how the princesses managed to resurrect wraith victim Phillip.
Perhaps an alive-and-well Lancelot will serve a role on getting Neal back on his feet and back to Storybrooke? Dust off your tin foil sorcerer’s apprentice hats and share your theories in comments.
