While #OnceUponATime has already traveled once to Neverland all the way back in Season 3, it appears that the past that resides there is not quite done with the heroes. After it was revealed last week that the character of Tiger Lily would be appearing this season, Once creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis have found their actress for the two-episode arc in Native American actress Sara Tomko.
In the original story, Tiger Lily was the daughter of the chief of the tribe of Native Americans that resided on Neverland. Hook captured her to get information about Peter Pan, and thanks to Pan's rescue of her she ended up with a small crush on the eternally young boy.
Hook and Peter have already gone through their past on the show, however, the subject of Tiger Lily never came up. According to the creators, she will bring up some of the unpleasant parts of Hook's past, from which he has been trying to distance himself in his redemption arc this season.
“Tiger Lily is the latest to return and complicate his efforts to leave that past behind.”
Surely, she'll be one of the "long line of adversaries" that Kitsis and Horowitz mention in the same interview. Tiger Lily will be appearing in Episodes 17 and 18 of the coming season. It will be interesting to see if the show returns to Neverland, or if she somehow makes her way to the Land of Untold Stories.
