Let me first off say, before I get into describing this days scenes in this post. I. DO. NOT. WRITE. THE. SHOW. So dont feel compelled to complain to ME if what you read is to your disliking as I know 1 particular subsection of the fandom is going to feel angry, and another overjoyed at what transpired. I am also going to say, dont whine to the writers. They have a vision for the show. If you dont agree with it, you can either quit watching, or watch it later elsewhere and fast forward the parts you hate. In any case, remember.... I dont write it, I dont pick & choose which scenes they opt to film in public, so I have NO CONTROL over the material I covered on this day. Just the last 5-6-7- times I've posted stuff with a particular actor in it, I get attacked by a specific group for "favoring" that actor. I dont pick who shoots what scenes.
Once Upon A Time found themselves in their most commonly used location spot, Steveston, for a shoot in early November for scenes for episode 612 "Murder Most Foul" directed by Morgan Beggs.
This particular day they shot 3 scenes around the village. Two on their main drag of Moncton Street, another up on the docks. In the early scene we see Joshua Dallas as David/Prince Charming and Colin O'Donoghue as Captain Hook walking through Storybrooke together at a hurried pace. What very few who went to the early shoot GOT to see was the end of the scene where Charming handcuffs Captain Hook to a bike rack. WHY does he do it? Well, thats something you'll have to tune in to the episode to find out, because I certainly couldnt hear the conversation. That scene was a pretty quick shoot, and eventually the pair left the set while the next group of actors came for the middle scene of the day, which I will cover in another blog post that will be linked HERE when it is finally done in a couple days.
Once it got dark out, the crew moved to the walkway at the docks of Steveston for a night scene that will have the fandom reacting 1 way or another, depending what your loyalties are to the show. The scene had 3 cast. Josh Dallas again. Colin O'Donoghue again. There was also an actor on set that so far no one has commented on anywhere, so let me be the first to welcome former Medium star David Cubitt to the Once world, as he was portraying the part of Robert Charming, who as I am lead to believe, is a ghost in this scene.
The scene starts with the elder Charming & the younger Charming staring over the ledge of the pier, Robert puts his arm on David and says some words to him. Eventually Robert leaves, only moments later to be replaced by Captain Hook. The same Hook that David handcuffed a bit earlier in the day. So what revenge does he have in store for David? Well, none, technically. You see, Hook was there to talk to David about something I can already hear the fandom squeeing &/or gritting their teeth at all at the same time, he asks David if he has his permission to ask Emma to marry him. Yes, you read that right Oncers. But what will Emmas father, and the man who handcuffed him to a bike rack earlier in the day say? Well, he says "Yes, of course", before the pair walk away together. I guess the question now is..... what will Emma say? That I am sure will be done in studio.... especially after this post is posted I am guessing. or maybe they already filmed it before this days shoot since filming is not done in chronological order, so a scene from 1 day could absolutely end up 40 minutes in the episode later than a scene shot 3 days prior.
Once Upon A Time airs on Sundays on ABC in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada & will return for their Spring season March 5, 2016.
