      That was my very first reaction when I read the article ^-^

    • Mine as well (well, maybe not exactly the same as yours, but at least on the same level of excitement). I'll be interested in seeing HOW they are involving him, whether it is in flashback, or maybe in a "dream realm" type encounter similar to what we saw with Emma and Neal. But the article said "Multiple episodes".

      Any contact from Robin to Regina will likely lift her spirits immensely, particularly since she chose to HOPE (I hope she made her 25 cent donation) that Robin is actually in a better place.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I actually imagined the Evil Queen disguising herself as Robin to trick Regina. It would be interesting, but greatly disrespectful, so I don't think it is happening XD

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I knew it! Robin was on the show for too long, and Sean enjoyed doing the show, for him to never appear again.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • He said he generally doesn't return to his old shows. Even in flashbacks. How the hell did he accept this?

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • My guess is that, as Robin Hood, Sean now has a loyal fan base, which he has had a chance to visit with at the various cons, even since he was killed. seeing that many loyal fans may have had an influence on his decision. Plus they may finally have a storyline that is more worthy of his talents (too bad it took killing him off to get there, if that is the case).

      Because he liked being on the show, he liked the other actors on the show, and I'm sure he saw how much the fans love him at the cons he did.

    • They once said Zelena will only be back for flashbacks in "Heart of Gold", but later we found out that she's alive in present day. I don't really care for Robin or OQ so I hope he stays dead because I don't want any more resurrection, specially after the "Zeus brought back Hook as reward" tragedy.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I'm not sure that it was always the plan, just as I am not 100% sure that bringing Rebecca back as Zelena was always the plan. Although, they did leave an opening to bring back Zelena. They did not, however, leave the same opening for Robin. His body is very much buried in the SB graveyard, and we are not sure what happened with his spirit at this point.

      Another thought does occur to me, though. Whatever else happens with Robin (and I doubt Sean would be coming back unless there was something more than what he got as a regular), my guess for his final scene will be Regina visiting Robin's grave with that ale from Dunbroch, and getting a chance to say a more proper farewell.

      And look at the bright side, maybe for once Regina will not get totally screwed over?

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Please tell me it is a flashback. I really don't like when they revive characters.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Holy something or another this is way out of left field

      The most interesting part is that he will be back for more than one episode. I could see one episode with the ale, or one episode where we found out he had a connection to a LoUS character (like Cora's one flashback in Season 3). But more than one episode? We don't usually get multiple flashbacks for a deceased character right in a row.

      Perhaps Emma actually will die this season, and we'll see her working with Robin in Mount Olympus to get back and save her family from the new villain? I mean, it sounds crazy, but so did Sean Maguire ever returning.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • While his death seemed final, I did think that we would probably see him again in a flashback before the series was over. Kind of like Cora, who has managed to pop up every season since her permanent death.

      Him coming back for multiple episodes probably doesn't mean flashbacks though, so I'm lost like everyone else. Will he be a ghost people can interact with? Will someone impersonate him? Are we in for another alternate reality/time travel situation?

    • If it's the mysteriously non-existent Robin flashback of 5B, well, it's a little to late to really matter. Even if he comes back........he never had character in the first place. (Exaggeration, but pretty true). Nonethless, I wish Sean Maguire the best as I'm sure he loves the cast and crew.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Especially, I think he and Colin had a strong off-screen relationship, with their respective families. Plus this will give them another opportunity to brew some more "By Hook or By Crook". Too bad I'm not in the Vancouver area to get a hold of a bottle, I bet it's pretty good.

      You know, that is quite possible!

      We all just interpreted Sean Maguire's interviews, as him being hurt and blindsided. Now it almost seems, like he was just messing with everyone. Especially, since Adam and Eddy mentioned Robin Hood, quite a lot over the summer hiatus.

    • It says that: "However, the character is not coming back from the dead."

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • For a moment there I was really afraid that death was really getting that cheap on the show after the big fuss they made to make it final, full stop, in the first few seasons.

      Considering the redux theory, I think Regina is going to get another "Then love again" moment, like she did with Daniel back in S2. Except it will probably be more along the line of the "My happy endind is my whole life, not just a man" from S4B and Regina will hopefully make good of that advice, showing how much her character has grown since S2.

      This arc is probably going to allow Regina to properly mourn Robin Hood's death, and learn to grow from her loss. She is someone who, despite loosing loved ones, has never done that before. Daniel's death caused the birth of the Evil Queen. She murdered her father to enact the Dark Curse. With each death, Regina entered an incredibly dark place. Causing her to dishonor their memories, despite it not being her intention.

      Regina doesn't know how to properly deal with pain. Everytime she suffers, someone else has to pay for it. 

      When Daniel died, she became a mass murderer. When Robin died, she took that freaking serum and freed the mass murderer again....

      By the way.... what in the world would happen if Henry dies?

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • To be fair, taking that freaking serum seemed like a reasonable thing to do and wasn't caused directly by Robin's death. It was several events that happened over the course of Seasons 4 and 5 - Robin's death was just the straw that broke the camel's back.

      However, every death prior to Robin caused Regina herself to do bad things or was caused by Regina doing bad things, not some strange "dark side of herself" (which in theory Snow would have too). Daniel dies? She holds a grudge against a ten-year-old that leads her to murder innocent villagers. Henry Sr. dies? So that she can cast the Dark Curse to get revenge on aforementioned ten-year-old. Cora dies? She tries to kill her son's entire family and force him to love her. The fact that she hasn't purposefully done anything to harm someone shows a lot of character growth already - the worst she has done is blaming Zelena, but she even tried talking that out.

      While I don't think it is that specifically, I wouldn't be suprised if his appearances were in some sort of mirror that lets you talk to spirits or something.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Oooh I'm totally in for Robin to become Regina's magic mirror. 

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Does that count as coming back from the dead?

      Also, considering that being in a mirror is something Sidney dreads, this does not sound like something improving upon her previous reactions to deaths. Just sayin'.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • As theories go, Robin becoming Regina's Magic Mirror is not as bad as some, but I'm not a fan of it, either.

      Still, There is something to be said for Robin, who always found a way to see the better parts of Regina even when he disagreed with her, becoming the Mirror that helps her see her better qualities and focus on those rather than the negative ones.  I won't discount that possibility.

      Besides, as we saw in Season 4, Regina always needs her mirror. XD

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • If Robin becomes the magic mirror I might stop watching

      What would he do as a mirror? Shooting arrows to Regina?

      That reminds me of that young adults novel Disney published, a few years back. It was about the Evil Queen's backstory, and how the slave in the mirror fed on her insecurities.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I had a thought about a way that they could bring Robin back. It is defintely WAAAAY out there in terms of theories, and I don't think they would actually do it, but I'll put it out there for everyone to shoot down with their Arrows. XD

      The theory starts with a misconception regarding the Olympian Crystal. It's function was not to obliterate souls, but to trap them. And so long as the crystal remained in existance, the souls thus entrapped could never escape. Even when Hades held the broken crystal, it was still in existence, and any souls previously trapped were still trapped. (Side note: it is not clear if Hades would be fully aware of the details of the Crystal, those details may only be known to Zeus).

      After the crystal was destroyed by the combined effects of stabbing Hades and untethering the magic, all of the souls in the Crystal were released. They couldn't very well go back to their former lives, as many have been dead for a very long time. But there was a built-in failsafe for the trapped souls. They were magically given their bodies (or at least reasonable replacements that represented their original identity) and were sent to the LoUS, since their stories were forceably put on hold by the use of the Crystal. From there, they could continue their existance.

      This influx of souls from the Crystal would not have occurred until after Hyde was in SB, since the destruction of the last piece of the crystal was not completed until Regina restored the magic to SB. So Robin would appear with a host of others in the LoUS. From there, it would just be a matter of Robin figuring out how to get a message to Regina so that they could be reunited.

      As I said, not the best of theories, and way out there, but there it is.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • How in the world did you come up with that? xDD

      I mean, there's no evidence to it so I can't really shoot it down :P But it's definitely super-interesting! The biggest problem would be that it requires Robin being alive, which, as far as official goes, is not happening. (I guess technically they said he wouldn't be "brought back from the dead", whereas your theory would make him not be dead to begin with... hmm...)

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • They need to keep Robin dead.... 

      OUaT is becoming a cartoon... They kill a character and the guy is there again in the next episode. 

      Hook, Rumple, Charming and now Robin??

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Hook was like the "too much" revived character at that point. Rumple, the show was empty at that point without him, Charming would have changed Snow's character, which would have been good, but they had to make him stay alive to make sure she stays as boring as possible. Robin won't be revived, it has been confirmed. He will appear, but stay dead.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Sean Maguire posted on Twitter (no link; should be pretty recent though) teasing that Robin will return, either dead or alive. In theory, he's probably just trying to make it more exciting, but he also posted that picture of Robin's corpse so who knows what he's willing to spoil.

      Now! The OUAT producers are keeping very mum on exactly how Robin Hood is returning to the show. “It’s definitely not just him in flashbacks, we can guarantee that,” EP Edward Kitsis says. EP Adam Horowitz concurs: “It’s multiple episodes, it’s not just in flashback, but it’s not necessarily what you’d expect,” he says. “How he integrates into the story, we want to keep a surprise and unexpected. It’s an important part of the main story once it happens.”

      I love how they make it seem like it's a big deal--akin to Rumple's returning in Season 3b. Robin is just not that interesting or relevant. I'm being a tad cynical, but they really shouldn't expect "intense" hype over a character that they poorly developed, that got minimal screentime, pushed to the side in an arc primarily about him, and still have not delivered on the "dark" Robin Hood backstory.

      Perhaps it's because it's not Sunday! XD

      That article definitely makes me curious, though. I doubt they'd bring him back to life, so what's he going to do in present day? How does this work?

      Speculative. I think there are times that most can't accept what the writers dish out (coughSwanSongRetconcough).

      I think a good chunk are upset over Robin's death because:

      a. killing a father of two after having him assaulted in more ways than one is horrendous

      b. Regina's not happy

      That's generally it. It would be different if he wasn't offscreen for much of season 5. If I go with overall audience from reviewers, forums, and such. (I generally ignore other forms of social media as a good measurement as it's all over the place.)

      I can't imagine him being in the present day unless he's in Ghost form. But why? If he's in a better place and Regina's slowly making peace with that, there's no reason to bring him back. Unless Sean's playing someone glamour as Robin Hood for some reason.

      EQ hasn't seem to care yet, so I guess she shouldn't. I mean she never mentioned it, still mad at Snow for Daniel, haven't targeted Emma or Hook or Zelena......yeah, if she suddenly has interest in him, I would consider it "Too little, too late".

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Well, We know that Sean is slated for multiple episodes, and not just flashback. It's also not what we expect, based on the article, which is not saying much because I don't think alot of us expected that he would even be back.

      However, I find it hard that he would simply be a ghost haunting Regina's office (The "Nearly Headless Nick" of Storybrooke) for multiple episodes. One episode I could fathom, but not multiple. So I think there will be more going on with this.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • It's worth noting that they also called Jekyll/Hyde's true identities and Morpheus's connection to Belle something we wouldn't expect, but both of those were predicted rather easily, lol.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Well, Jekyll and Hyde were not too hard to guess. Scheharazade and Sinbad actually being Jasmine and Aladdin was not all that hard to guess either. Morpheus being Belle and Rumple's son, though, was not something that I saw coming.  We knew there would be some kind of connection, just not what it was.

      My guess is that we will probably have how Robin will return figured out before we actually see him, but there will still be some surprises. One theory of his return is listed in the "Wish you were here" thread.

      And A&E said he won't be back from the dead

      Soooo........... I already said it somewhere else: I think Regina will die and she will reunite with Robin in the afterlife and they will find a way to return.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • What's interesting about this then is that Wil Traval is coming back, so I'm wondering how the Sheriff of Nottingham/Keith comes into play when Robin returns....

      Perhaps Sean is just saying that he didn't sign on for *just* a flashback? They said he was going to be in a couple of episodes,so there could still be a flashback somewhere that he appears in but that wouldn't be the entire point of Sean flying back up there. 'Cause I feel like Keith appearing in present-day is waaaaay less likely than the Sheriff of Nottingham appearing in a Robin-related flashback, right?

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • looking at the article, I would hazard a guess that the main driving storyline for Robin will be present day, dealing with all the ramifications of what happened when he was 'Crystalized'. Now, that's not to say what the writers may have in store in addition to the present day storyline. They could, if it was relevant, provide some additional story by way of flashback. But anything like that will be supplemental, only there to support the present day line.

      As for Wil Traval, he has not been seen present day since we saw him take a serious beating at the hands of Rumple and Lacey. Whether he survived that encounter is still a matter of debate. But it they do go the "no flashback" route, then the answer is likely that we'll see Kevin back in Storybrooke.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Hmmm... I'm starting to think how Robin returns is going to be something really crazy, like he is the one under the hood that is "killing" Emma in her vision. Maybe being hit with the Olympian Crystal turned him into Thanatos (God of Death) or something.
