Possible relationships/character developments I want to see in Season 2
Following are the possible relationships I want to see explored/further developed in season 2:
Well, as a Snigby fan since reading the Fables comics (which only strengthened after TWAU season 1), this is a no-brainer. While they can't be actually in a romantic relationship (because they don't formally become a couple until the comics), season 2 can still give us many Snigby moments such as the following season 1 examples:
- Snow's face getting red when she sees Bigby topless.
- Snow saving Bigby's life at end of "A Crooked Mile"
- Snow and Bigby's tender/sweet moment at the beginning of "In Sheep's clothing"
This relationship can also be affected by the possible Bigby/Snow/Charming love triangle (discussed next) furthering their character development.
When they were married (back in the Homelands), Charming betrayed Snow's love for him when he slept with Rose Red, there's no question about that.
With Snow, she's been abused (heavily implied to be sexual abuse) once when she was held captive by the 7 dwarves (back when she was still a teenager), and again with what she had to go through with Crane.
In season 2, I think it would be great if we could explore these 3 characters (Bigby, Snow, Charming) relationship. (Doesn't have to be but) Maybe set up a love triangle?
They could have it like Bigby loves Snow, and Snow has feelings for Bigby (but sort of shows a denying appearance), and Charming, while still being an irredeemable womanizer, tries to get in Snow's good graces (and player's Bigby can choose whether to act jealous or not).
And Bigby and Charming maybe can have some sort of rivalry going on (with Charming being smug and looking down on Bigby, similar to Bluebeard, but in a more sophisticated/elegant kinda way.....opposite to Bluebeard, who was basically acting like a thug).
3. Snow/Rose Red
Two of them always have had a rocky relationship (with ups and downs, being on good terms once, and some time later, being at odds with one another), despite being sisters. I would love to see them bicker/argue with each other with Rose showing her rebellious streak (i.e. Rose purposely taking actions which would defy/embarass Snow) and show Snow's frustrations with her sister.
4. Bigby/Cinderella (a.k.a. Cindy)
Bigby trained Cindy in the art of combat (except swords which in that case Bluebeard seemed to be the instructor), and taught her the way of espionage, which made Cindy Fabletown's best Spy. Therefore, Bigby always had Cindy's loyalty (which Snow called upon in the main series' final volume in order to assassinate Totenkinder), and she always did tasks that he entrusted to her (such as luring Crane out when Bigby finds out Crane had betrayed Fabletown to the Adversary, and also being Snow's bodyguard when Snow takes a break/holiday outside Fabletown in the mundy world).
What's also unique about Bigby and Cindy's relationship is that, despite having strong affiliation (Master and Student, plus Boss and Employee) and friendship, there's no romantic relationship between these two (while something similar can be said about Bigby and Beauty, Bigby and Cindy's connection is much stronger in the comics)
I loved Colin and his sarcastic attitude. And since it is canon that he frequently escapes, gets caught, and taken back to the farm (continuous cycle, until his death in the comics), it would be great to further develop their somewhat ironic, but hilarious relationship.
6. Boy Blue/Flycatcher/Pinocchio
In the comics, these 3 are basically best friends. They basically hang out together, visit the same comic book store, and have fun. So if Flycatcher stays on the cast, and Boy Blue and Pinocchio are added, then this friendship is a must see.
