More Once Upon a Time news arrives with the first shot of Rapunzel on set with Prince Charming! Check out the still and all the scoop below.

Earlier in the season we reported that Once Upon a Time cast Alexandra Metz, bringing Rapunzel to the Enchanted Forest. Today, TV Guide released the first still of Rapunzel’s tower.

Once Upon a Time Rapunzel

With Disney’s recent spin on the Rapunzel story, Tangled, Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis promise that their Rapunzel will not follow suit.

Kitsis tells TV Guide, “We went a little darker and freakier. A little more horror story in the vein of [the 2004 movie] The Grudge.” There will be two visitors to the tower that we know of. Prince Charming will make the climb followed by a mysterious hooded figure.

All sights are set on the Wicked Witch’s motive for the season, and perhaps Rapunzel is part of it. However, if we know anything about Once Upon a Time‘s other evil leading lady, perhaps Regina tries to get to Rapunzel first. If Rapunzel has a dark side, Regina may need to use it to her advantage in her battle against the wickedness blowing in from the West.

Metz is just one of many new faces coming to Once Upon a Time for the second half of season 3. Eric Lange will fill the shoes of Prince Leopold, and Rose McGowan will return to the show as a younger Cora. Rebecca Mader will coat herself in green to put a new spin on the Wicked Witch of the West. With all of these new faces and stories arriving soon, it will be interesting to see how the creators will intertwine the characters’ various plot lines.

Once Upon a Time season 3, returns Sunday, March 9 with episode 12 “New York City Serenade” at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
