Once Upon A Time was back in Steveston on Tuesday filming some scenes for two episodes. Mostly it was for episode 619, but they also did 1 scene for 620 later in the day.
They started the day shooting a scene with 3 people. Rebecca Mader (who was out of sight the whole scene.... so I never got a photo of her) Lana Parrilla as Regina Mills and Jaime Murray as the Black Fairy.
The scene seemed to see the pair squaring off in the midddle of the street, sizing each other up. At one point you hear Bex yell "Regina", and in a later scene after the 3 actresses had wrapped, the Black Fairy stunt double did a scene where she is thrown through the air.
This is the second blog of this days shoot since it finished 2nd in my twitter vote on which one to do 1st. You can find the 620 blog with Colin O'Donoghue HERE and the blog with Emilie de Ravin, Robert Carlyle and Jennifer Morrison HERE
You can catch Once Upon A Time on Sunday nights on ABC in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.

Once Upon A Time films scenes for episode 605 with Robert Carlyle, Rebecca Mader, Beverley Elliott, Jennifer Morrison and Raphael Sbarge
THIS POST IS FOR EPISODE 605 OF "ONCE UPON A TIME". If you have not seen this episode and do not want to see or read any possible spoilers to the episode. Do not continue viewing or reading this post.
Once Upon A Time filmed scenes for episode 605 in Steveston in August. Besides the night scene I posted earlier, there was 2 day scenes I saw as well.
The first had e regular/semi-regular cast on set. As Robert Carlyle as Mr. Gold, Rebecca Mader as Zelena and Beverley Elliott as Granny were all on set. There was also a baby on set as you can see from the pics below. As well, there was a woman in a red top who COULD have been a guest star, or just an extra that was going to get more face time than most usually do because she was getting more attention from the crew than the average background extra gets.
The scene was pretty long, but didn't reveal much except that we see Zelena go into Grannys Diners courtyard and sit down, and later on Mr. Gold leaves Grannys. Besides that, there was little to know about the scene.
A bit later they filmed out on the street with Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan and Raphael Sbarge as Dr. Archie Hopper. After the shoot, Raphael came over & met with fans.
This scene was much more visible and it seemed like Dr. Hopper was trying to talk Emma into or out of something before she turns on the engine and drives off.
Once Upon A Time airs on Sundays on ABC in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada. This episode SHOULD be airing TONIGHT.

Once Upon A Time filmed a scene for the season 5 finale at the Vancouver Art Gallery that included a large chunk of the main cast & a couple guest stars.
Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, Robert Carlyle, Jared Gilmore and Olivia Steele-Falconer were already on set as you may have read in my prior post here.
Joining them for this last scene of the day Josh Dallas as Prince Charming, Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White, Colin O'Donoghue as Captain Hook, Rebecca Mader as Zelena and Hank Harris as Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde (unconfirmed yet... but my sources state thats his character).
The scene, seemingly was a continuation of the earlier scene they shot that had the earlier cast standing staring into a fountain with a group of other people in new York City when suddenly out of nowhere, the 2nd group appears. The last we had seen of this group (minus Dr. Jekyl) they were being sucked through a magical door in the middle of downtown Storybrooke. How did they end up popping up in a fountain in New York city?
More blogs for the finale coming, still have 2 to do from their last Steveston day of the season coming up this weekend.
Once Upon A Time will air this 2 hour season finale on Sunday May 15, 2016 on ABC in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.

Once Upon A Time filmed scenes for an upcoming episode in Steveston back in March with several cast on hand.
In the daytime, they shot a variety of scenes that at the end of the shoot left those watching wondering VERY MUCH if they had just seen a lead up to how season 6 might start.
The scene they shot had a variety of characters and guest actors like Jason Burkhart (Little John), Amy Manson (Merida) and Raphael Alejandro (Roland) talking to a group of Storybrooke residents, including Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White), Josh Dallas (Prince Charming), Colin O'Donoghue (Captain Hook), Rebecca Mader (Zelena) and Beverley Elliott (Granny).
It was pretty hard to hear any of the dialogue from the scene, but it was clear that the group were meeting up with the Storybrooke group to say some last good byes.
They then shot a scene where Zelena opens a door that magically appears in the middle of the street and all the non-Storybrooke characters go thru.
It starts with Merida going thru, she says her good byes to Charming & Snow then walks thru. It ends with Little John and Roland, who it seems is now in the care of the big sidekick of Robin Hood, just before they go thru Zelena has a talk with Roland, and I am sure we all know (assuming you are caught up on your spoilers) what that talk probably will be about. As Roland leaves, he waves good bye to Storybrooke as well as as Snow and Charming before going thru the door with Little John.
Once thru the door, Zelena tries to close the door....but of course, this is Once Upon A Time, so it doesn't go as planned, and the group get sucked in thru the door.
Video of 1 of the takes has been added below.
As well, shots of a night scene (not many) with Colin & Jennifer Morrison will be posted later in a different blog post HERE.
Once Upon A Time airs Sunday nights on ABC in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada. This episode will be part of the 2 hour season finale.
Once Upon A Time season 5 started filming last month. The small village of Steveston in South Richmond was again transformed into Storybrooke for a day of filming for episode 1.
The first scene I came across in downtown Steveston for the 1st day of shooting for Once Upon A Time season 5 in the town involved an odd sight.
Granny's diner had been transformed into a beer garden. whether this is a temporary situation, or permanent was not yet known. More off, was Gabe Khouth as Sneezy wearing an Emma Swan style red jacket & driving the Sheriffs car. He shows up to what appears to be a ribbon cutting ceremony with several other dwarves in attendance including Faustino DiBauda, Mig Macario and maybe others.. I couldn't see the whole scene from where I was, but there was at least 3 or 4 of the dwarves there. Most notably missing were Lee Arenberg and Michael Coleman.
After that scene, the production moved 1/2 block down to an intersection. In the intersection they set up a scene with several cast members including Rebecca Mader, Sean Maguire, Lana Parrilla, Josh Dallas, Ginnifer Goodwin, Colin O'Donoghue, Emilie de Ravin and Jared Gilmore.
In the scene, we see Lana as Regina Mills marching towards Rebecca and Sean as Zelena and Robin Hood. Regina is flanked by several of the locals, Hook, Mary & Dacid, Belle and Henry all follow her to the middle of the street.
It seems that Zelena has robin captive somehow and demands a wand from Regina for the release of Robin. Regina does whats asked of her, and gives Zelana a wand. Robin is then let go & instantly taken in by Regina to their side of the battle.
Zelena proudly waves the wand around, attempting perhaps to create magic or a spell? But its appears to be a fake. Zelena realizes it wont work, but before she can react, Regina moves in & puts a cuff around her arm and seemingly stops Zelena dead in her tracks.
Once the cast did a couple rehearsals of it, they went back to their trailers & got into wardrobe for the actual filming.
A little while later, the group returned to film the scene in their full wardrobes for the day. By that point, the crowds swelled well over 150 and at times, over 200 people, as the combination of the 1st shoot of the season and nice weather drew a larger than usual crowd. No surprise with the size of the crowd, none of the main cast came over to meet any fans at all this day. while the main cast is becoming less & less receptive of coming over in the past year or so, its rare that NONE of them do. Guess the absurdly large crowd was just too much for any of them to consider.
While they were shooting this scene, my battery on my camera died so I left while they were still shooting. so I don't know if more happened in this scene afterwards, but the amount of times they shot this, I doubt it.
