Once Upon a Time: What You Need to Know About the New Henry

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: ABC As one door closes, another one opens . . . and Henry Mills is waiting on the other side. Once Upon a Time concluded its sixth season on Sunday, and the show is embracing an entirely (well, nearly entirely) new story in season seven. Among the many nods to the first season in the finale, there's a moment at the end when a child knocks on the door of their long-lost parent and declares that fairy-tales are real. Sound familiar? Except this time, it's a little girl named Lucy knocking on the door of adult Henry Mills. Gone is the little boy we once knew! Jared Gilmore has left the show, and he's been replaced with Andrew J.
