"Once Upon a Time" returns for its sixth season in just a matter of weeks, and one character will be looking a bit different when the show airs this Fall.
After five years of having the same hairstyle, Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) will be sporting a much shorter hair next season. Cartermatt reports that Carlyle had to cut his hair over the summer for his film "Trainspotting 2." According to executive producer Adam Horowitz, the makeover will be addressed at some point in the story but it will possibly be just a brief explanation.
Season 5 may have left off with a happy ending for some characters, particularly for Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Hook (Colin O'Donoghue). However, more complications await the Storybrooke characters now that the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) and Mr. Hyde (Sam Witwer) will both return to bring more trouble.
Mr. Gold has always been in control of Storybrooke but spoiler reports note that he will apparently hand over the reins to Mr. Hyde in season 6. This is for him to focus more on Belle (Emilie de Ravin) and their unborn child. Mr. Hyde is clearly up to no good and him being the town's new silent puppeteer could only mean more terrible things for the citizens.
As for the Evil Queen, her fight with Regina is not the only conflict she will get involved in. Despite being totally detestable, the Evil Queen still values her relationship with her son Henry (Jared Gilmore). If Regina and Emma's combined efforts cannot defeat her, there is a possibility that the Evil Queen will attempt to turn her son to the dark side.
Another interesting addition for this season is the Aladdin (Deniz Akdeniz) story arc. It will later be revealed that the street rat of Agrabah was actually the first Savior, and Emma has to deal with the realization that she is not the only one of her kind.
"Once Upon a Time" season 6 premieres on Sunday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
