Every year I have a dilemma. Blog materials that I just don't get used up in time. Whether its because of scheduling, or because something better pushes it back, there are some blogs that never get posted because once the episode airs, the viewership on them drops substantially. Another problem that I have, which seems to be uniquely a Once Upon A Time problem is, getting too many blogs worth of material from 1 shoot.
Since the crew try to squeeze in 2 or 3 or 4 days worth of scenes into 1 day so as to not continually inconvenience the area with their filming when they are on location in Steveston, this often leads to several sets of photos of different scenes, and thus a backlog of sets from the show at once. So what happens is I will usually post 1 or 2 sets quickly, and the other sets get forgotten for awhile, or all together.
This happened again this year with several sets from OUAT that I have already wasted because the episodes have already aired and, while SOME of you may still like to see the pics, the mass majority don't care & thus making a blog post for a couple hundred views, for the effort it takes, is time wise, not worth it.
This brings us to THIS blog post, about material for episode 409 which obviously has long since passed.
Since you have seen the episode already, I will simply say. The pics below include director Mario Van Peebles, Jennifer Morrison, Scott Michael Foster, Elizabeth Lail, Georgina Haig, Robert Carlyle, Colin O'Donoghue & Emilie de Ravin in varions scenes through out the day.
Once Upon A Time is up for several 2014 Best Of TV Awards, voting on the Finals is going on right now thru till the 3rd week of January, 2015 HERE.

The 4th season of the hit ABC fantasy drama "Once Upon A Time" premieres tomorrow night on ABC.
This season is going to feature a 9 episode story arc centred around the hit Disney billion dollar movie "Frozen".
They have cast several characters from the movie for this story arc, and I was the 1st person to post photos of Elizabeth Mitchell on set, and the 1st to post a pic of Georgina Haig filming a scene back when they filmed in Steveston a couple months ago. Also cast in the arc are Elizabeth Lail as Anna and Scott Michael Foster as Kristoff.
Georgina Haig, formerly from "Fringe" has been cast as Queen Elsa. She did scenes throughout a 2 day shoot with Colin O'Donoghue as Captain Hook & Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan, but for the mostpart did just solo scenes. Some of the other scenes shot over the 2 days were reactionary scenes to the arrival of the Elsa character, including some with Faustino Di Bauda, Lee Arenberg and Josh Dallas.
Georgina did 1 night shoot scene where we see her at Mr. Gold's pawn shop. What could she be looking for in there? That will be a mystery we wont know the answer to till the season begins.
I caught up with Georgina twice over the 2 day shoot. The 1st time as she was leaving the set earlier in the day on day 1. She sat in her transportation vehicle & willingly signed for the 1/2 dozen people there before being Driven off. The second time was after the end of day 2. I called out to her as she prepared to leave set after shooting her night scene. She did not hesitate to come over to the couple dozen fans still waiting around at 1:30 AMish She signed autographs, and took a couple photos with fans in her Elsa dress (partially covered by a jacket).
A few weeks later, back in Steveston, the arrival of another Frozen character was seen as Elizabeth Mitchell shot scenes. Her character is The Snow Queen, who we first see filming scenes as the proprietor of a sundae shop called "Any Given Sundae" while Lee Arenberg, Beverley Elliott and Raphael Sbarge go storming by her. My next trip out to Steveston a week later after seeing her dressed as a shop owner, we see her, in full Snow Queen garb being chased thru the streets and alleys of Storybrooke by the towns Sheriff, and former bounty hunter Emma.
Once Upon A Time will run with the Frozen theme for 9 episodes to start season 4, then it will be gone. The 1st of these episodes airs tomorrow night September 28, 2014 on ABC in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
