'Once' Gets Mad Again!
Not only am I a huge fan of Sebastian Stan, but I was incredibly enamored of his work as Jefferson, a.k.a. The Mad Hatter on ABC's Once Upon A Time last year. So, when his iconic hat accidentally sent Emma & Mary-Margaret to another dimension in the season premiere, I declared that episode to be the only time OUAT was allowed to bring up the character without actually bringing back Sebastian.
As you can see in this sneak peek clip from Sunday's all-new episode, my prayers have been answered as Sebastian and The Mad Hatter return to Storybrooke! Not only is Jefferson back in We Are Both (airing October 7 at 8 p.m.), but he'll continue to use his powers in hopes of bringing Emma and Mary Margaret back from fairytale land in the following episode, Lady of the Lake.
Earlier this year, Sebastian told me that he hoped to get the chance to return. "I loved that character. I grew up reading and loving [The Mad Hatter], so to have the opportunity to bring him to life in such a brilliant way as the showrunners have written him was a blessing. I enjoyed that very much, and I hope there's more of him."
It's nice to see Sebastian got his wish! But will Henry and Charming? Tune in Sunday at 8 p.m. to find out!
