With many members of the “Once Upon a Time” cast leaving, which character will you miss the most in Season 7? A whopping 60% of fans who voted in our recent poll said that Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) will be missed more than anyone else. As the Savior, Emma battled evil and her own demons for six seasons of the ABC hit fantasy series before finally ending on a happy note. Emma got married to Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue, who is returning next year) and helped defeat the Black Fairy in the final episodes of Season 6.
Zelena (Rebecca Mader) comes in second place in our poll with 14% of the vote. The Wicked Witch made her entrance in the Season 3 hour “New York City Serenade,” with fans soon discovering that she was the sister of Regina (Lana Parrilla) who was sent to Oz at an early age by her mother Cora.
Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) comes in third place with 10% of fans saying they’ll miss her the most, followed by Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) at 8%. Like Emma, both Snow White and Prince Charming were with the show since the pilot episode and served as the most prominent characters.
Also with 8% of the fan vote is Belle (Emilie de Ravin). The female half of the show’s Beauty and the Beast couple first popped up in the Season 1 episode “Skin Deep.” Her on-and-off again relationship with Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) will hopefully be addressed in Season 7, as he will still be a major part of the show despite Belle’s absence
How will “Once” carry on without the central family unit? Morrison will reportedly return for a single episode next year so that Emma Swan can have an official on-camera goodbye. And the fact that we saw a future version of Henry (Andrew J. West) last season suggests there will be a massive time jump next year. The “Once Upon a Time” Season 7 premiere episode title is “Hyperion Heights” and will welcome several new cast members, including Dania Ramirez, Gabrielle Anwar, Mekia Cox and Adelaide Kane.
