Are you confident that Moana will be Lucy's mother/Henry's love interest in "Once Upon a Time" Season 7? Well, one of the showrunners has a message for you.

Many fans ended up on the same Moana page after the Season 6 finale, figuring the epic love story ahead between Henry and Lucy's mother will be with Henry and Disney's Moana. But here's what one of the showrunners told Entertainment Weekly in response to a fan:

As soon as I saw the Polynesian mask on the portal door in the hat during the Once Upon a Time finale, I knew right away that Lucy's mother will most likely be Moana. — Roger
Not so fast. "To examine those doors as clues to what Season 7 would be is not necessarily what they were there for," EP Adam Horowitz says. "It's more of a symbolic thing that's telling us how big our universe is and that there are many places left to be explored." So, it's probably unlikely, but never lose hope!

But why "probably unlikely"? Horowitz never said it was unlikely, just that the doors weren't necessarily intended as clues. It sounded more like the kind of deflection you use if you don't want to outright confirm or deny something.

Speaking of confirming and denying, it's confirmed that three main "Once" characters are returning as regulars for Season 7, but it sounds like they will also be changed -- as in, with "new identities."

Here's what ABC said about Season 7 at upfronts:

After six seasons, the residents of the Enchanted Forest face their greatest challenge yet as The Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla), Captain Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) and Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) join forces with a grown-up Henry Mills and his daughter Lucy on an epic quest to once again bring hope to their world and ours. Along the way, fairy tale characters new and old search for true love, find adventure and once again take sides in the struggle of good against evil, as classic tales are once more twisted and reimagined.

Afterward, according to TVLine, ABC boss Channing Dungey talked more about the "reboot" of Season 7, saying Hook, the Evil Queen and Rumplestiltskin "return but with new identities in a new city, facing a new curse."

New identities? Lana Parrilla addressed that in a video Q&A with Gold Derby, saying, "I do know that we're playing sort of different characters," but she had no further details. "It's all unknown."

As a fan in the TVLine comments reacted, "What is meant by sort of different characters. does that mean new characters period or just that they are sort of different cause its the new names and ways they behave due to new curse?" TVLine's Matt Webb Mitovich replied, "Well, that's the $1 million question. And probably no new info until Comic-Con. So everyone should just sit tight!"
