Once Upon a Time “Shattered Sight”

After seeing the first glimpse of the Shattered Sight curse at work last week, I expected a dark episode filled with stress and urgency trying to save the town from the curse. With mostly dwarves fighting though, this week is nothing but comic relief. Where is Robin with his bow? […]

Once Upon a Time “Fall”

Such a nice feeling to finally, FINALLY know what happened to Anna! The explanation doesn’t allow for the Snow Queen staying young, but at least we know that Anna was frozen in time and place for the past thirty years. She and Elsa can, quite literally, pick up where they […]

Once Upon a Time “Smash the Mirror”

It all seems too easy. Anna finds the Dark One, learns what her parents learned, and is returned to Arendelle safely. End of story, right? Not so fast. Let’s review what we know: Anna is missing. Elsa was trapped in the magical urn. Anna’s necklace in Gold’s shop is damaged. […]

Once Upon A Time “Rocky Road”

For an icy treat, stop by Any Given Sundae for a delicious curse cream cone. Poor Marion seems to be having a rough time settling into Storybrooke — first a jumbo snow monster, now an ice curse from the Snow Queen. Her timing couldn’t be worse, of course. She is […]
