I actually think the opposite as the above post. I saw the cliffhanger as a simplifying move, in order to greatly reduce the supporting cast. It's not a coincidence that every truly important character from this season was on that boat. I don't think we'll be seeing Storybrooke much next season.
I agree. I could easily see next season's cliffhanger be the main players returning to Storybrooke only to find it deserted/destroyed.
