THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS PICS & A DESCRIPTION OF A MAJOR SPOILER SCENE FOR EPISODE 121 (from what I was told there)! IF YOU HAVENT SEEN THIS EPISODE & DONT LIKE SPOILERS.... I ADVISE NOT CONTINUING ON!
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
Ok, so those of you still reading on.... you have seen the ABC promo video by now for 121, and you have seen the scene where Regina is tied to a tree? If not, well, I guess these pics are even more suprising.
In that scene, all you see is a close up of Emma with a sword swinging it and Regina tied to a tree & a breif pic of many of the residents of Storybrooke behind her watching.
So, I happened to be around that night, and sure enough, caught this amazing scene being shot. Below are some photos (I apologize, some are grainy/blurry, sorry. It was dark & I was a block & 1/2 away).
The scene entails Ruby & Dr. Hopper securing Regina to a tree thats in the middle of the road in downtown Storybrooke. All the characters gather around, and angrily yell at Regina their frustrations & feelings. "You're not queen anymore sister", "you took our love & ripped it apart" & "now your going to pay" just being some of the things yelled out at her by the angry mob.
The Dwarves, Granny, Dr. Hopper, Mary & David, Ruby, Henry & of course Emma are all seen making a half arc around her, while some hold torches, others just stand around angrily venting.
The scene ends with Emma grabbing a sword from David, and swinging it at Regina, who is still tied to the tree.
When I saw this scene originally I was fascinated with wondering how they were going to get to this point so quickly, and having seen last weeks episode, I can solemnly say... I am still confused.
Moreso, I am confused why ABC is burning what should be season 2 cliff hanger material so early. I guess I will find out on Sunday.
Notably absent from the lynch mob... Mr. Gold & August W. Booth. Hmmmmm...
As with all my sets, if you re-post my photos, do so with proper credits & DO NOT remove the tags, or they will be removed from your site & the site may penalize you however their rules state for such infractions, which may include legal or civil penalties.
If you want photos untagged for your site, images are for sale untagged, just inquire... as are autographs of the stars at the link tagged "Once Upon A Time autographs" on the left.
I will try to get the video uploaded as soon as I can. PROBABLY not today though.

Once Upon A Time actresses Jennifer Morrison, Meghan Ory and Lana Parrilla meet the fans on the set of episode 121 in Steveston
In the last few years, I have found a lot of bad sets, sets where the crew angrily tries to prevent people, regardless if fans or professionals, from being near the set or the cast. However, I have also come across some amazing sets. Perhaps the nicest of them all... ABC's Once Upon A Time.
As the season wound down, and I grew into more of a fan of the show, I was more eager to find them filming. Sadly, they really only have 4 or 5 regular locations, and the only 1 I am familiar with getting to is their location in Steveston, which fills in for part of downtown Storybrooke, Maine.
The show was out in Steveston to film episode 121 awhile ago, and with a friend from Japan in town who wanted to meet some of the stars, I went out there, even though there was little from an autograph standpoint I needed.
As it turns out, it was 1 of the best decisions I made. My previous jaunts out to Steveston had nabbed me 1 or 2 cast here, a couple more I would see there, but this trip? Almost everyone was there. Between the daytime & nighttime shoots, I saw most or all of the Dwarves, Ruby, Granny, Dr. Hopper, Mr. Gold, Henry, Emma, David, Mary & Regina out there.
I managed to get autographs from most everyone I needed as well. Included in that was the biggest 1 I had yet to get, Meghan Ory. Twice I had gone out there hoping to run into her but missed her. This time though, she walked right by the car I was sitting in & was more than happy to accomodate the requests asked of her by the dozen or so fans & professionals hanging around. In what is still 1 of the funnier moments for me, 1 of the professionals, who isnt familiar with the show (and showed it) displayed a Lana Parrilla photo to Meghan to sign, as you can see, Meghan seemed as shocked as I was at his ability to mix the two up. But she was still a good sport and signed everything for him after he realized his mistake.
I wasnt really in need of Jennifer Morrison or Lana Parrila, as I have gotten both of them multiple times throughout the year, but still took a few pics f them interacting wit the fans. Such a class cast this show has.
Below is some photos of the ladies on the show, interacting with the fans. Coming soon, the men of the show doing the same.... AND LATER THIS WEEK SOME SPOILER PICS OF A COUPLE SCENES BEING SHOT FOR 121.
I will add links to this blog later of the other episode 121 blogs as I post them.
Once Upon A Time photos of Ginnifer Goodwin and Beverly Elliott doing scenes for episode 15 of season 1 in Steveston
Earlier this week I took the hour or so trip to the far end of Richmond by skytrain & bus to the small village of Steveston. Of course, as most fans of Once Upon A Time (Best New Show finalist in the Best Of TV Awards 2011 polls) know, Steveston is where much of downtown Storybrooke is set.
This week they were filming scenes for episode 15, which from what I have been told is supposed to centre around the character of Little Red Riding Hood/Ruby (played by actress Meghan Ory). So I headed out there, as Meghan was 1 of the few cast members on the show I have yet to get autographs from.
When I got out there I found Mary Margaret Blanchard (played by Best Actress In an Action/drama finalist in our Best Of TV Awards 2011 polls, Ginnifer Goodwin) & Granny (played by Beverly Elliott) doing a scene right on the corner I was heading down. No sign of Ms. Ory at that time, but I took some shots of the scene between Goodwin & Elliott. After their scene wrapped, myself & another local hound went across the street to get autographs. he went for Ginny, while I went for someone I had not gotten before... Beverly Elliott. She was quite amazed I had a photo of her, asked where I got it. I asked if she had seen it before & she said "yes, but not blown up into a photo", she signed it & thanked me for being there.
Later on I in the evening found Ginnifer back at the set. She walked over to an ice cream shop that I had earlier wondered if it was being used for a scene or just a product of clever advertising. It had in its window a riddle promoting "Red Riding Hood Ice Cream". I saw Ginny, Jared Gilmore & several of his school class mate cast members in there enjoying ice cream on what was a very cold day already. At first, I assumed they were shooting scenes in there...but later came to realize, nope, it was just an ice cream stop during a breaking in shooting.
At that point Jared was told he was wrapped for the day, while Ginny hurried back to the set where she still had a scene to do with Jennifer Morrison & Josh Dallas, where she would be inside & out of sight.
I never actually ran into Meghan Ory the day I was there. She wrapped her day scenes shortly before I got there...and was there fir night scenes shortly after I left. Had the weather not been so bitterly cold, I might have braved it for a bit longer that day. But at least I didnt go away shut out, as I got a few pics from scenes, and an autograph from a cast member I had yet to meet.
Below is a few pics from the day & a couple of different props & set locations, including the Dr. Hoppers office door & Ruby's car.... which appears to be just fine after the fender bender it was in earlier in the season.
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
