The title of the premiere episode of “Once Upon A Time” Season 6 has been released online. The TV series is set to return this October, but the producers are yet to reveal an exact release date.

[Spoiler alert]

Producer and writer Adam Horowitz has shared the first “title spoiler” of the next season online. The title of the episode is “The Savior” and the script has been written by Horowitz and Edward Kitsis.

Horowitz had previously teased the title of the premiere episode, but had not revealed it. “We’ve been through this before, not telling you the title yet!” he jokingly wrote on a mock script page and shared a picture of it online.

Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) is often referred to as The Saviour. The title appears to be teasing that the plot of the premiere episode will once again be centred on this character. The premiere episode of the previous season heavily focussed on Emma, who became the Dark One for a brief period, before becoming a hero again.

The main villain in “Once Upon A Time” Season 6 is Mr. Hyde (Sam Witwer). The plot is now expected to focus on all the characters from Land of Untold Stories, who have been brought to Storybrooke to make it their new home.

There will be a minor change in the format of the TV series this year, Entertainment Weekly reported previously. Horowitz said that they were planning a 22 episode story, instead of breaking it into two halves.

For the past few years the plot of the TV series followed the same routine of introducing a new villain, who the heroes fight for 10 episodes and they win in the finale. “Once Upon A Time” Season 6 is going to be different, Kitsis revealed. The show is going back to the “ small town stories and smaller arcs,” a format that was seen in the very first season.
