Oncers have two weeks until the next installment of “Once Upon a Time” airs but the ABC series’ showrunner isn’t making fans wait that long for details about the upcoming Season 6 episode.
After the network announced a new installment wouldn’t premiere on Sunday, Nov. 20, due to the 2016 American Music Awards, executive producer Adam Horowitz released a script tease for episode 9 on Twitter.
Last fans saw Rumple (Robert Carlyle) and Belle (Emilie de Ravin) he thwarted her attempt to leave Storybrooke with their unborn baby boy’s fate intact. With the couple’s future very much up in the air (we haven’t forgotten about your love affair with the Evil Queen, Goldie!), Rumbelle fans will likely be stirring over Horowitz’s script teaser.
The snippet reveals Rumple will tell his estranged wife he’ll “never be the man” she thinks he can be in a confessional manner. She responds that it “doesn’t have to be that way.” Read it in full below:

As of Wednesday, ABC had not released a synopsis for Season 6, episode 9, titled “Changelings,” though the promo video does offer some clues as to what’s ahead. ABC’s preview shows Rumple attempting to hurt Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) and approaching a very scared and pregnant Belle. In a later scene, The Dark One’s beloved is shown going into labor with Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) by her side.
“Once Upon a Time” returns to ABC with episode 9 on Sunday, Nov. 27, at 8 p.m. EST.
