What are you trying to do to us, “Once Upon A Time?”
The show keeps adding more and more “Frozen” characters to its season four cast — Pabbie the Troll King and Prince Hans were added to the roster earlier this week — but one major character is noticeably missing from ABC’s first look at the cast. Anna, where are you?
Hat-tip to Bustle for coming up with this theory weeks ago, but it wasn’t until now that we seriously started to buy into it — guys, is Anna dead? All six of these first look photos prominently feature Georgina Haig as Elsa, while Scott Michael Foster as Kristoff and even Sven the reindeer show up as well, but Elizabeth Lail’s Anna is yet to show up at all, despite that fact that “Frozen Upon A Time” has been filming up in Vancouver for weeks now.
Look, we know it’s not pleasant to think about, but something bad happening to Anna would definitely explain why Elsa was locked up when we first encountered her at the end of season three. Whether she’s guilty or not of whatever crime has taken Anna out of the picture in present day — it could also have been Elizabeth Mitchell’s mysterious character, who will definitely play a villain — we could definitely see Elsa going mad with grief and freezing the crap out of a whole bunch of things like she did on the big screen.
Of course Anna will feature in flashbacks no matter what — footage of the two sisters talking over their parents’ graves was debuted at Comic-Con — but we think this gone girl theory definitely could explain why we’ve seen or heard little about “Frozen”’s big-screen star at this juncture.
