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 was Lee Arenberg.
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.

Once Upon A Time returns for season 5 on ABC in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada starting Oct 2015
Apologies in advance for how grainy/fuzzy a few of the pics are. It was a relatively new camera at the time and I still was learning some of the settings, and apparently had something set on it that was not optimal.
In early April, Once Upon A Time wrapped their 4th season. One of their last days of filming was on location in Steveston, which is their often used location for part of downtown Storybrooke.
On this day they shot a couple scenes through out the day. starting in the early morning. A scene was shot which had several of the cast members laying on the ground including Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, Timothy Webber and possibly Sean Maguire from what I could see. There may have been more that were out of view from me. Also in the scene was Jared Gilmore, but he seemed to be standing through it all.
What happened in the scene, I don't really know. Out of context, it really didn't make much sense to me, or others watching. Scenes often don't, but some of the time you can piece together what the general idea is...this was not one of those times.
After they shot that scene, the actors for the night scenes came out, did a quick read thru/rehearsal for the scene before heading back to their trailers to wait for night fall.
After they wrapped the daytime scene, they took a long break as they waited for the sun to set to shoot night scenes in the middle of downtown Steveston.
The night scenes consisted of Sean Maguire, Lana Parrilla, Colin O'Donogue, Jennifer Morrison, Josh Dallas and Ginnifer Goodwin shooting scenes in the middle of the street.
The scene appears to have some type of magic involved as the Regina Mills is frozen in the middle of the road, restrained by some unseen force. Robin Hood tries to rescue her, but is sent away by the "force". Eventually Emma comes in with Rumplestiltstins dagger and does her best He-Man impersonation which seemingly releases Regina from the mystery grip, and causes Emma to apparently vanish. Captain Hook looks on while Emma holds the dagger up and seemingly tries to convince her to not do whatever it is shes doing. Off to the side Snow White & Prince Charming stand in shock & horror as they watch all of this take place.
With this shoot being their last run in Steveston for the season most of the cast were quite good about coming over at 1 point or another to meet fans & sign autographs. Lana, Jennifer, Colin, Josh and Sean all met with the fans at different times throughout the night.
Once Upon A Time is nominated for May Madness, which is going on right now. You can vote HERE on current matches.

Once Upon A Time shoots scenes for episode 409 "Fall" with Jennifer Morrison and Georgina Haig in Steveston.
This post may contain spoilers for episode 409 of ONCE UPON A TIME. Please DO NOT continue reading or viewing photos if you do not want to see or read anything about the episode prior to its airing.
Once Upon A Time shot scenes for episode 409 "Fall" in Stevenston, BC in early October.
Several scenes were shot through out the day, and I will get to the others soon. This particular scene was between Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) and Elsa (Georgina Haig) in which they both seemed to wander across downtown Storybrooke from near Mr. Golds to the library following a pendant that Elsa is holding.
In the scene you can clearly see Elsa wearing her yellow ribbon on her wrist, although Emma has one on in the scene, it does not seem to be as visible.
More sets from this shoot will be posted later, including scenes with Elsa, Anna and Kristoff. As well as scenes between Mr. Gold, Captain Hook & Belle.
Once Upon A Time is up for several awards in the 2014 Best Of TV Awards going on right now here.
Season 4 of Once Upon A Time airs Sunday nights (except for next week) on ABC in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
Once Upon A Time shoots scenes for episode 404 with Elizabeth Mitchell, Jennifer Morrison and Jared Gilmore in Steveston
THIS BLOG POST MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 404 OF ONCE UPON A TIME. Do not continue reading, or viewing the photos if you do not want to see or read anything about the episode prior to its airing.
(PS - sorry, if links dont work in this blog post. Every time I made an edit to this blog all the links would vanish... so I dont know if they will work or not. Guess scroll over them and see if a link shows itself? Theres been a LOT of problems with Weebly the last week or 2 since they changed their system... hopefully this is a temporary glitch).
I know it seems like I have already had 50 Once Upon A Time season 4 set reports already... but really its only been like 7. Maybe the fact this is for episode 404 is why it seems like so many.
I caught OUAT filming scenes for this episode in Steveston a couple months ago and decided I should start getting these up faster (I was overwhelmed with so many sets from the earlier shoots, and preparing for my annual trip to Toronto that a LOT of blogs got pushed back...and I am just getting caught up now).
So there wont be a lot of description to this than to say it had a scene where Elizabeth Mitchell as the Ice/Snow Queen (heard it both ways) is hurrying thru the side streets of Storybrooke with Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan in hot pursuit with her gun out. This also of course is where that pic of Jennifer with her hair in every direction was from that Jen liked so much she tweeted it shortly after I had posted it on twitter myself. More random than that had to be seeing Jen and her stand in and stunt double, along with Elizabeth and her double all at the same time.
At some point, scenes were also shot with Jared Gilmore as Henry Mills, but I never actually SAW what his scenes entailed since the absurdly fan unfriendly production had people shoved back, behind a side street so that NO PART of the scene was visible to them... a tactic they have gotten all too familiar with trying to do every shot in Steveston now. They really do act like they own the town.
Anyways.... here are pics from this shoot... I have some night scene shots from this day as well with a few different actors coming soon as well.
You can see the rest of my OUAT blog posts of course at the link on the left hand side titled Once Upon A Time Blog.
Once Upon A Time season 4 is on ABC in the U.S. every Sunday and on CTV in Canada.
