“We need to blow Storybrooke off the map” – Tamara
Once Upon a Time filmed in Steveston for four full days for its season two finale — And Straight on ‘Til Morning. Easter Monday, April 1st, was Day Four with most of the main cast on set at the historic Gulf of Georgia Cannery on the Steveston docks. With Storybrooke facing destruction, it looks like Regina/The Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) is forced to team up with the Charmings (Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas & Jennifer Morrison) to stop the curse’s failsafe trigger from being activated. Do Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) and Lacey/Belle (Emilie de Ravin) join Team Charming as well? And is that a portal they’re circling on the docks? If so, where is Henry (Jared Gilmore)?
Evil Regals, Ugly Ducklings, Dearies and other fans waited on a walking/running/cycling path on the north side of the cannery buildings for their last chance to see the cast in season two. Few thought then that Steveston might lose Storybrooke altogether. A new For Lease sign on Mr. Gold Pawnbroker & Antiquities Dealer suggests it might, but Mr. Gold’s building is too small for the kind of sword fight scenes Once Upon a Time filmed in there so it would make sense to reconstruct that set in studio like Granny’s Diner. And as long as the Moncton Street merchant contracts remain unbroken there’s hope Storybrooke will survive in some form and Once Upon a Time will return to Steveston.
So Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) is escalating his bad behaviour in Storybrooke to woo Belle’s cursed self Lacey (Emilie de Ravin). As I’ve said before, this is not RumBelle. More like The Dark One and the Tramp. How nasty will it get? An ABC.com preview of the first eight minutes of next Sunday’s penultimate episode shows us. The scene below opens with Dr. Whale (David Anders) on the ground outside The Rabbit Hole. looking up at the sole Mr. Gold’s boot. Whale’s crime: “You stared at her and I know how you think,” Mr. Gold pronounces as Lacey giggles, dressed in her signature barfly style of short dress, fishnets and heels.
SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME’s Robert Carlyle & Emilie de Ravin at The Rabbit Hole In Steveston for 2×20 – Updated
Update April 28 2013. Greg and Tamara hold Hook captive in the clock tower of the Storybrooke Library. To get Hook to help them with their plan they show him Rumplestiltskin is alive and happy coming out of The Rabbit Hole below.
Once Upon a Time set up cameras on the roof of the Storybrooke Public Library in Steveston early this March to film a scene of Mr. Gold in a dark suit and Belle’s cursed self, barfly Lacey in a sequined blue, tight, short, backless dress, stumbling and weaving out of The Rabbit Hole pub, arms round one another. Is this after Mr. Gold beats and rips the tongue out of the Sheriff of Nottingham (Red Widow’s Wil Traval) cursed self Keith to Lacey’s delight? The same tongue which had just been shoved down her throat.
Mr. Gold and Lacey are definitely not RumBelle. More like The Dark One and the Tramp. But fun characters for Robert Carlyle and Emilie de Ravin to play.
Update: “You’re Henry’s grandfather.” – Regina to Rumple
Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) and the Evil Queen/Regina (Lana Parrilla) seem to be on friendlier terms in 2×19 Lacey despite Cora and Regina’s efforts to kill him in The Miller’s Daughter. Of course the actors are real friends with no hard feelings about who tried to kill whom. Once Upon a Time filmed a scene in late February of the two evilish characters walking and talking in the background of Rumple’s son Baelfire/Neal (Michael Raymond-James)’s play swordfight with his son Henry (Jared Gilmore) in Fisherman’s Park.
SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME’s Jennifer Morrison, Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, Robert Carlyle & Jared Gilmore in Steveston’s Kuno Garden for Season Finale 2×22
Once Upon a Time is filming in Steveston for [four] full days for its season two finale — And Straight on ‘Til Morning. Wednesday, March 27th, was Day Two and began with cast — including Jennifer Morrison, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Josh Dallas — on set for an early morning runthrough around 8:30 a.m. in the Kuno Garden at the 75-acre waterfront Garry Point Park, west of the historic village of Steveston. Real-life couple Goodwin and Dallas took a quiet stroll together in the sun after and then headed back to circus while crew set up for the morning scene of Emma and her parents, Charming/David and Snow/Mary Margaret, driving up to the garden in Charming/David’s truck and walking into the Japanese-style memorial garden where the emotional moments took place.
