District Attorney Albert Spencer is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time. He débuts in the eighteenth episode of the first season. He is portrayed by guest star Alan Dale, and is the Storybrooke counterpart of King George.


For events occurring before the casting of the first curse, see King George.

During First Curse

Albert Spencer is the Storybrooke district attorney who is called in to conduct an interview with Mary Margaret regarding the disappearance and assumed murder of Kathryn Nolan. Mary Margaret ends up incriminating herself in this interview, which seems to satisfy D.A. Spencer. ("The Stable Boy")

After First Curse

After Emma Swan breaks the dark curse, Spencer hides in his car and spies on David and Henry practicing sword fighting. ("Lady of the Lake")

Later, Spencer meets with David and warns him that he plans to make his life hell as revenge for ruining his plans for family as King George. Spencer tries to frame Ruby for Billy's murder, forcing David to protect her and choose his friend over the townspeople. Granny follows the scent of Billy's blood to Spencer's car and she and David find evidence that Spencer killed Billy. They stop him from killing Ruby in her wolf form but he escapes and burns Jefferson's hat, preventing them from opening a portal to rescue Mary Margaret and Emma from the Enchanted Forest. ("Child of the Moon")


Character Notes

Production Notes

  • A deleted scene from "Tiny" implies he was arrested down in the mines. However, the canonicity of that is uncertain, as the scene never aired. Showrunner Adam Horowitz stated that Albert is supposed to still be in jail since his latest appearance.[2]



  1. King George may or may not have been brought over by the second Dark Curse. Therefore, it is unknown if he was cursed again.
