'Once Upon a Time' Romance Rundown: Is True Love's Kiss Coming in the Season 4 Finale?!
By Leanne Aguilera
It's time for our last Romance Rundown of the season!
With Once Upon a Time's epic two-hour season finale just a few days away, it's time to get the inside scoop on what's next for all of your Storybrooke sweethearts.
Once again, we at ETonline chatted with OUAT's executive producers Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis to find out what's in store for Captain Swan, Rumbelle, Outlaw Queen and Snowing in this Sunday's season four finale.
Plus, could another "true love's kiss" be headed our way? Read on to find out more about a "hot" hook-up coming in this week's episode...
Rumbelle: That must have been the shortest honeymoon in TV history, because Belle (Emile de Ravin) and Rumple (Robert Carlyle) fans have had a heartbreaking season when it comes to their fairytale twosome. For those who are tired of trying to figure out what's next for Rumbelle, the two showrunners are promising a solution.
"We are going to get some resolution as to where they stand," Horowitz explained. "Rumpelstiltskin and Belle have had a long and winding road and the long and winding road continues, but we love those characters and what they both mean for each other."
Kitsis added, "We're going to get real insight into why Rumple has behaved the way that he has."
Snowing: Now that Emma (Jennifer Morrison) has finally forgiven her parents, it's time to stop seeing them act like scolded puppies, and start seeing them in a new (and epically wicked!) light.
"They did a bad thing and they have to pay for it," Kitsis teased. "We -- in the finale -- are going to see Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Charming (Josh Dallas) like you've never seen them before, I can promise you that. But I think we're going to hopefully get a resolution out of them this year."

Outlaw Queen: To say that this season has been an emotional roller-coaster ride for Regina (Lana Parrilla) and Robin (Sean Maguire) would be a severe understatement. Their love has been thrown for so many loops, that we're still dizzy with confusion.
Luckily, it's time to finally get some answers for Outlaw Queen's relationship. (We're so tired of their current "it's complicated" status!) "We are going to get a resolution and clarification on just what their situation is by the end of this year," Kitsis spilled.
Captain Swan: Emma and Killian (Colin O'Donoghue) have shared some pretty sweet moments this season, and although we're not sure if they'll share a coffee date by the end of Sunday's finale, we do know that we’re in for some major relationship revelations.
"Captain Swan are going to be tested like always," Kitsis confessed. "And we are going to get an emotional truth about them."
Could that "emotional truth" be a true love's kiss?! We asked the EPs if we can expect a spell-binding smooch from one of our couples in this weekend's finale, and they were very coy with the who in their answers.
"There's some kissing action going on in the finale," Horowitz promised. "What it does and how it works may not be as we've seen before, but there's definitely some kissing action."
Kitsis continued, "Are we going to get a true loves kiss that break a curse? No. Is there kissing in the finale? I believe there is. There's always some kissing, and whether or not it's going to break a curse with true love, it'll be hot nonetheless."
Once Upon a Time's two-hour season finale airs Sunday at 8 p.m. on ABC.
