Production NotesEdit

  • The title of this episode was revealed by Adam Horowitz via his Twitter account on February 21, 2017.[1]
    • The episode was also referred to as "The Musical Episode", as it was revealed by choreographer Paul Becker via his Instagram account on February 9, 2017.[21]
  • According to Jane Espenson, a musical special feature was already considered back in 2014, but it did not happen because it was too expensive.[22]
  • This episode has been in the works since Summer 2016.[23]
  • Songs were recorded in advance, and then played back on set as the actors choreographed.[24]
  • According to Adam Horowitz, it was hard to figure out how to meld the "voice" of the show with a musical.[25]
  • On the last day of filming for this episode, Colin O'Donoghue injured himself and fractured his foot.[26]

Props NotesEdit

Costume NotesEdit

  • Emma's wedding dress is strongly inspired by the one worn by Grace Kelly during her wedding with Rainier III of Monaco.[28][29]
    • Jennifer Morrison explained that the dress "represents the elegance and simplicity of classic timeless strength mixed with the delicacy of femininity and vulnerability".[28][29]
  • Hook wears a black velvet jacket for the wedding, which was Edward Kitsis' idea. The wedding outfit was originally going to be different, but Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz thought that Hook needed to have a tuxedo that reflected his personality and had a little edge to it. The velvet felt like "the Hook-version of fancy".[30] Actor Colin O'Donoghue "wanted everything to feel like one of those old black-and-white musicals", and the wedding outfit is a combination of this idea and the velvet.[29]

    • My theory: 6x19 - Black Fairy dies, they win 6x20 - The Musical Episode, everything is resolved? 6x21 - Something bad happened to them...
