"Once Upon A Time" Season 3 spoilers are increasing, delighting the still impatient OUAT followers and Oncers. There is a little bit of spoilers on various characters, from the evil queen to Princess Aurora. Of course the most anticipated guest is Elphaba, as co-creator Adam Horowitz teases on Twitter that #WickedisComing. Aside from the green wicked witch, there will be star-crossed soulmates, a wedding, and a new baby on the ABC fantasy series. There is still no new episode this week, though.

Spoiler alert: This feature rounds up the spoilers reported by various sources on Once Upon A Time Season 3. Read at your own risk.
One of the first few spoilers to come out after the airing of Once Upon A Time Season 3, Episode 11 ("Going Home") was about Elphaba. The Wicked Witch of the West is indeed coming, and she's unleashing her wrath on Storybrooke. (Yes, the land, apparently, does not cease to exist in Part 2 of OUAT 3.)
Rebecca Mader of "The Devil Wears Prada" and "Alphas" is playing Elphaba. Episode 16 of OUAT Season 3 is expected to unravel OUAT's TV version of the popular green witch. OUAT 3x16 is titled, "It's Not Easy Being Green." An episode called "Witch Hunt" is airing three weeks ahead, possibly to intro the new witch in town.
"We're setting up the fight of all fights: Evil Queen versus Wicked Witch!" OUAT co-creator Adam Horowitz was quoted by TVLine.com. This encourages the fans to speculate that this time, Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) will be fighting alongside the (no-longer?) Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla). They did it in Neverland, they could do it again. They're family, afterall.
Watch the Wicked Witch promo video in this teaser clip from ABC. Elphaba fans are excited to see the Wicked character's adaptation on TV.
There will be a lot going on for the Evil Queen in OUAT 3. She has sacrificed her longing to be loved by letting go of Henry (Jared S. Gilmore). But she is expected to be with her soulmate - widely presumed to be Robin Hood. As there's a wedding in spoilers, Regina's sympathizers are hoping she could have a happy ending, too.
Horowitz also revealed Rumplestiltskin aka The Dark One (Robert Carlyle) and Belle (Emilie de Ravin) "are going to be in the same world for an extended period of time." Rumple "dies" in Storybrooke. So where will they be together - Enchanted Forest?
Princess Aurora aka Sleeping Beauty (Sarah Bolger) and Prince Phillip (Julian Morris) are still part of Once Upon A Time Season 3. In fact, spoilers say they will be connected to Snow White and Prince Charming in their second pregnancy. (Ginnifer Goodwin has earlier confirmed on Twitter that she and fiancée Josh Dallas are pregnant. The couple's real life "infanticipation" will be written into OUAT 3.)
Spoilers are scarce on Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) and Captain Hook (Colin O'Donoghue). The not-yet-official couple figure in the mid-season finale cliffhanger (Once Upon A Time Season 3, Episode 11). Fans are speculating that Emma will choose Neal aka Baelfire (Michael Raymond-James) in the end, but the "end" does not seem near for this trio.
The next new episode from ABC's Once Upon A Time Season 3 airs on March 9, Sunday.
