I've been wondering this for some time, so this is question for those of you who have watched the Once Upon a Time in Wonderland episode "Who's Alice". I noticed the name of the young man Sarah and Edwin wanted to introduce to Alice is Mr. Darcy. I wonder if it's just a coincidence, or did the writers intentionally write in the name of Mr. Darcy as a direct reference to the main male lead in the book "Pride and Prejudice".

Nothing the writers ever do, is a coincidence.... so, it was intentional. That young man was, meant to be, the son of Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy. Which makes me wonder, if the writers ever read Pride and Prejudice.
Lizzie and Darcy married for love, and did not have a formal courtship.... unlike Jane and Bingley, who did formally court each other. While I can picture Lizzie allowing her son to meet Alice, I doubt she would have pressured him to court her. Sarah must have just been attrached to the Darcys' fortune, and was getting ahead of herself.
Lol. That is also true. Though I did add it as trivia on the "Who's Alice" page. XD I agree that it may be just a coincidence that the young man's surname happens to be "Darcy". I'm going to try and possibly tweet some of the writers of the episode to see if I can get confirmation it's just a coincidence or otherwise.
