Once Upon A Time: Spoiler about the Snow Queen, Elsa and Anna

This should a spoiler for the next episode since they mention Arendelle and there’s something in the promo that makes think that, but I’m not sure!

Any scoop on Sunday’s two-hour episode of Once Upon a Time? — Deirdre
Here’s a tidbit: “Elsa and Anna get to work together back in Arendelle,” Elizabeth Lail reveals. “So we get to see the two sisters become a team and formulate a plan.” That’s definitely bad news for the Snow Queen, who will learn that her plan to pit Elsa against Anna won’t be easy.

Elizabeth Mitchell Talks Snow Queen Twist On ‘Once Upon A Time’

There is a new interview with Liz about The Snow Queen:

The Snow Queen’s dark past was revealed on “Once Upon a Time,” and although Elizabeth Mitchell didn’t know Ingrid’s full history when she took on the role, she had an inkling based on her conversations with executive producers Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis.

“They told me it was something huge and it had something to do with family and that it forever changed who she was and I kind of just figured that must be what it was,” Elizabeth told Access Hollywood on Monday about the back-in-time twist, which played out on this past Sunday’s “Once,” revealing that Ingrid accidentally killed one of her sisters by accident.

“I kind of thought, ‘What would be worse than taking away the life of someone that you love by accident. …. What would that do to you?’” she continued.

Elizabeth said she actually didn’t find out the backstory until shortly before filming that particular episode, but her instincts prompted her to play a character with painful past.

“They didn’t tell me until a few episodes before, but it’s kind of how I had been playing it, you know, someone who had been kind of desperately wounded, because they told me it wasn’t romantic, which gave me an idea of playing her as a woman who really hadn’t had love in her life — hadn’t fallen in love. But when would she have had the chance to?” Elizabeth explained.

In Sunday’s episode, after Ingrid accidentally froze her sister Helga, and then broke her ice frame into pieces (another accident), Ingrid’s other sister, Gerda, put her in the urn for everyone’s safety.

Arendale’s Pabbie the Rock Troll made everyone forget about Helga and Ingrid, while Ingrid had to deal with her feelings for 30 years in the urn, and it has turned her into the driven Snow Queen she is now, in Storybrooke.

“I think that you lock somebody up even in just a cage for a year and they’ll go out of their mind. This is 30 years, this is a crazy woman, so I think she’s completely mad,” Elizabeth said.

As viewers have learned, Ingrid is trying to make Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Elsa (Georgina Haig) her replacement sisters, three sisters all with power. Her plan is as mad as she is, but is there any hope that she can change her mind or her ways?

“Whether or not she can come back, I don’t know. It’s interesting,” Elizabeth said. “I do believe that people can be redeemed, but it’s a hard case here. I mean, she’s basically saying that people who are magical are worth something and people who are not, are not and that’s really terrifying to me. Any time you get into that is really pretty horrifying to me.”

Interview with Elizabeth: What’s Next for The Snow Queen?

Hey guys, there’s a new interview with this incredible woman by TV Fanatic. Enjoy!!! 😀

Is the Snow Queen the most evil of evil on Once Upon a Time Season 4?

On Once Upon A Time Season 4 Episode 7, we may have learned the origins of Ingrid (aka The Snow Queen) but, as actress Elizabeth Mitchell told me this morning, that doesn’t mean we should necessarily sympathize with her.

However, what fun The Snow Queen is having as she turns Emma against her own family and works her plan with the aid of Rumple himself.

So … what’s next as we move into next week’s two-hour episode? Let’s see what Mitchell had to say…

TV Fanatic: You play evil really well, I have to say!

Elizabeth Mitchell: I’ve had such a great time. That’s really funny. We have this Monday morning thing with my son and his friend turns to me and said the exact same thing. He’s nine and he said ‘You’re really good at being evil!’ And I said ‘Thank you, Trey!’ [laughs]

TVF: It’s a good thing for sure.

EM: Good!

TVF: When you first started playing Ingrid, how did you navigate just how villainous you’d play her? You could do really over the top like twirling the mustache, so to speak.

EM: Well, that’s so interesting and a great question. I started with the fact that she’d been kept captive for 20 years in a vase and then I started with the question ‘what does that mean?’ She was put away from society when she was 10 and then she was in a vase most of the time when we learn who we are so I started to play her like a pre-teen girl who has never been in the world and someone who doesn’t really know.

That was my thought. What if you have someone who looks a little like Mae West…she’s really very innocent on the inside so what happens when that happens?  I didn’t think about being calm or being still. It was more along the lines of how do you get what you need and she wants love. So she watches and waits and tries to figure it out. But maybe there is a little bit of mustache twirling but it’s under the radar. [laughs]  It was genuinely fun but that was my thing the whole time. How do you take such a fractured person and try to make her whole again? That was my intention but I had a great time with it. I really did.

TVF: We got a lot of Ingrid’s backstory but do you think we should sympathize with her at this point? I mean, she’s still doing really bad things to the people we love in Storybrooke!
