  • Christopher Gorham's character is being credited as Walsh, in 3.12.

    Is this his actual name, or is it just a codename? Who do you think he really is?

    • Well, the discussion did not change: even if we have a name, we have no info about him so... MYSTERY :D

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • That should not stop you from trying to guess ;)

      Plenty. But I don't think any of them would really fit into the ONCE.scene unless they suddenly do Darby O'Gill and the Little People. As much as I'd love that, I don't think it'll work. These codenames aren't so direct to give away who they really are simply by name or surname (except maybe in the case of Mulan and Victor Frankenstein.) In this case, it may be a tad bit tricky. Remember, he's connected to both Emma AND Rapunzel.

    • I remember a site saying that he won't be romantic with Emma, but more just have some sort of history with her. I'm hopin' he's her old foster brother from when she was a kid. It's also said he has a connection to Rapunzel, so he could be the OUAT version of Flynn Rider.

      That's mainly what I had in mind as well, although it's not my top theory. I have a few in mind.

    • Cool. I think if he is the OUAT flynn, then he could've been the one to bring out Emma's inner rogue. Either he's Emma's old foster brother, or he was at the orphanage with her, and was her best friend/brother figure.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I don't remember Emma mentioning an orphanage...

      In fact, unless the LWM deviates from the real-world on this, there really aren't "orphanages" in Maine (or the US, for that matter) even in the 1980s. Emma would have been bounced between different foster homes, probably with varying numbers of children. (The home she was in with Pinocchio, for example, was a foster home)

    • Possible connection - Pat Walshe was an actor who portrayed Nikko, the head of the Winged Monkeys in The Wizard of Oz.

      Maybe WWoW and Rapunzel are each other's true love. Or neither of those three has a love interest. Everything is possible.

    • True, but I'm still sickin' with Walsh being the OUAT version of Flynn Rider. Christopher looks like he could definately pull off the whole Badass rogue.

      This is a great theory.... it would be similar to how Dr. Whale was named after James Whale, the director of Frankenstein

      There's a lot of Christian & Catholic orphanges in the U.S, so Emma could have spent time in on of them.

    • Check out the Walsh Coat of Arms .... it features an arrow piercing a swan. The family's motto was transfixus sed non mortuus - transfixed but not dead.

      Interesting find. Good job. I am a bit worried about Emma's safety now though, between a character name that the corresponding coat of arms show a swan getting pierced by an arrow and the fact that a main character is supposed to die this season, but then again can they really kill Emma off? I guess time will tell.

      Thanks!

      I do not think, we should be worried about Emma. While she might be in danger, as she is the Savior. She is the least likely character to die. Rumor has it, that the death scene was already filmed, a few weeks ago. Though, I would not be surprised if Walsh is a villian.

      Most likely, no, she wouldn't. Yes, there are larger group homes for children that are run by religious organizations, but children typically aren't placed in them via state/federal officers. The state of Maine would have placed the kids into a foster home. Which, we know, is what they did with baby Emma and Pinocchio; placed them into a foster home. (That clearly was some kind of kid-farm. Sad) I'm not saying such a thing is impossible, but as Emma was a ward of the state, she would have been placed into some sort of state facility. Orphanages as people imagine them simply don't exist any more in the US.

      If he is indeed a winged monkey, I wonder what his motives are? Is he sent by Wicked Witch to spy on Emma, or stop her to come to Storybrooke, or maybe he is a fugitive from Oz? I just hope Emma's love triangle won't turn into love square...

    • No. It's been stated that he has no romantic link with Emma, but with Rapunzel. And I highly doubt he's a flying monkey. Nack when Neal first came around people thought he was Robin Hood.

      I do not remember anyone thinking Neal was going to be Robin Hood, when he first appeared. Most of the theories, I saw, thought he was exacty who he turned out to be.... Baelfire and Henry's father. Some people thought, Neal/Baelfire was also going to be Peter Pan.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I both want him to be Emma's foster bother but I also want him to be a flying monkey. Perhaps, he will be a nice monkey like Finley in Oz the Great and Powerful.

      Do you have a link? I remember them stating he would have some sort of a connection with Rapunzel, without precising whether that connection would be romantic or not.

    • Just go to google and type in Christopher Gormham Once Upon A Time, and go to News. It's stated in all of the different sites, it was even stated on the season 3 page of this wiki before someone removed it.

      And with the Neal thing, before he was named Neal, everytime I'd stay the mouse on the link to his name, below it someone had it say 'Robin Hood'.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I still can't find anything about his romantic connection with Rapunzel, which doesn't mean you are wrong though. Anyway, that gave me an idea, maybe he is a winged monkey who fell in love with Rapunzel and trapped her in a tower (since he can fly). Or Wicked Witch is using Rapunzel to control him and his army of winged monkeys.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I think Walsh was the prince from Rapunzel, but chose not to rescue her and ended up in the land without magic, and decided not to make the same mistake, with Emma.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • All interesting theories. I too believe Walsh is a winged monkey. I did guess a while back that Walsh seems placed with Emma, by I'm guessing Zelena, but whether he's doing it blindy following orders or that she is using Rapunzel as leverage to get what she wants remains to be seen.

      I would love the idea that Walsh fell in love with Rapunzel, and would visit her in her tower (after being imprisoned by Zelena) but remained hidden in the darkness (The Grudge like twist) because he didn't think Rapunzel could reciprocate once she had seen his appearance.

      I would prefer Walsh to be doing bad things in order to save his true love, and have him be redeemable then Wicked. I don't care what fantastic reason Zelena has for being wicked, but please, let her stay wicked.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Sounds like the Walsh is a winged monkey theory might be correct ;)

      I wonder if the creators are now kicking themselves, for making Victor Frankenstein's Storybrooke name Dr. Whale? If it were not for that, no one would have made the Walsh/winged monkey connection.... it is almost too obvious, now.

      James Whale was the director of the original Frankenstein film. Pat Walshe played Nikko, the head winged monkey, in The Wizard of Oz.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Anyone else think that he might also be the wizard, and that he's only a flying monkey because Zelena turned him into one when she snuck up on him, and she's forcing him to do her work, because he genuinely liked Emma, he even said so himself, and I doubt any of the other monkey's would do that.
