The Jolly Roger Gang returned to Storybrooke late last month in a massive shoot in Steveston involving 25 cast at the barge set, moored at private commercial fishing docks east of the Britannia Heritage Shipyard Park. Despite the openness of the big reunion, I don’t think Once Upon a Time planned for this to be so public or they wouldn’t have moved the barge set from moorage at the park. Just before lunchtime the cast walked down to set in warm coats for a walkthrough. It was a happy actor reunion as well — expressed in group hugs — since some who play secondary Storybrooke citizens hadn’t seen the main cast for months.
Here are the cast on the docks for a walkthrough (scripts in hand) of the Welcome Back scene. Below are the Charmings: Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow), Josh Dallas (Charming), Jared Gilmore (Henry) and Jennifer Morrison (Emma)

Robert Carlyle (Rumplestiltskin), Emilie de Ravin (Belle) and Lana Parrilla (Regina) were on set too, but I didn’t capture them on the docks.
