It’s hard to continue a show when your main character decides to call it quits. But it’s something that’s been brewing for quite some time now. And to solidify those thoughts of the show’s demise, Morrison’s character, Emma Swan, recently tied the knot on the show wrapping up a relationship that had been going on since about season three.
“After very careful consideration, I have decided that creatively and personally, it is time for me to move on. Emma Swan is one my favorite characters that I have ever played. My 6 years on ONCE UPON A TIME has changed my life in the most beautiful ways. I am absolutely blown away by the passion and commitment of the Oncer fans. I am so honored to have been a central part of such a special show. I will be forever grateful to Adam, Eddy, and ABC for giving me the gift of playing Emma Swan.”
The show could, theoretically, spin-off in a thousand directions because of all the characters on the show. Mr. Gold, Regina, and Captain Hook (even though he’s married to Emma Swan) would all make reasonable leads. However, Morrison’s character was the main focal point of the series. It would have to be called something else if another character took the lead.
The show has been quite a success for the network (as you can tell by it’s six seasons), and the season finale is slated to air this Sunday. Hopefully the show will end on a happy note for it’s fans. It would be a shame if it left audiences with some kind of cliffhanger and no real chance for resolution.
Once Upon A Time airs Sunday on ABC with it’s 2-hour season finale.
