If you don’t want to be spoiled for Once Upon a Time’s spring premiere New York City Serenade, please stop reading now. When I saw Christopher Gorham hug Jennifer Morrison on the Yaletown set outside Brix restaurant last Thursday night (November 21st), it tempted me to tweet a new shipper name like #Swangie or #AugSwan in honour of Morrison’s Emma Swan character embracing Gorham’s Auggie character from Covert Affairs. [Update: Christopher Gorham is cast as Walsh, an “important character in the life of Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison).”] Once Upon a Time crew let me watch and take a few unobstructed photos on the understanding I wouldn’t spoil the scene. This is another Manhattan moment that won’t air until March next year, so  pretty much everything was a spoiler until the casting news went official last Friday — months in advance.]

Once Upon a Time telegraphed its Yaletown shoot in the morning by parking a row of prop yellow NYC cabs on Davie Street, ahead of the exterior night shoot. Instagram link.

In preparation for the night shoot, crew moved the cabs into position on the 1100 block Homer Street.

The A camera crew crossed the street for a tracking shot of Emma (or JMo as they call her) and Christopher Gorham’s characters emerging from the restaurant dressed as Ostria for the show.
