Once Upon a Time shares a fair deal with Lost. The creators of Once Upon a Time came from writing jobs on Lost. More than few actors from Lost‘s six-season run have popped up on Once Upon a Time in roles of varying importance. Once Upon a Time also employs a method of storytelling that Lost made famous by having each episode focus on one character and having a flashback of their life resonate thematically with the present-day events. Now it seems like Once Upon a Time will share a little bit more with Lost as the series begins to wind down for its final season, setting up a firm end date so fans can prepare to say goodbye to the show.
