Once Upon a Time “Snow Drifts” / “There’s No Place Like Home”

When Emma and Hook are sucked through the portal to the Enchanted Forest 30 years in the past, we can expect trouble, and lots of it. Sure enough, a simple broken branch at the wrong moment is enough to derail the entire future history of the love story between Charming and […]

Once Upon a Time “Kansas”

A lot of things about Kansas drive me nuts, but there were so many resolutions and interesting turns that I’m willing to forgive a little. All in all, I think they did a good job of explaining the importance of many things, even if they did have to squeeze and […]

Once Upon a Time “A Curious Thing”

With only three episodes left in the season it’s no surprise that questions are being answered wholesale, and several mysteries are finally explained. This week we learn that it’s actually Snow White who cursed them back to Storybrooke, choosing to sacrifice Charming to do it. On Rumple’s tip they travel […]

Once Upon a Time “Bleeding Through”

What a tumultuous episode this week! As usual, the writers take a character we have learned to hate, and give us that missing tidbit of background that allow us to feel sympathy for them. In this case, Cora. We learned early on that she is a woman to be feared […]

Once Upon a Time “The Jolly Roger”

This week we’re treated to a lovely little tête-à-tête episode with Hook and Ariel. I actually find it kind of fun that Ariel is having such a hard time meeting up with her prince, since in the original tale she was never able to stay with her true love. This […]

Once Upon a Time “It’s Not Easy Being Green”

This week has so many wonderful moments, it almost feels like they held some back in previous episodes to give us this treat. Granted, the witch fight was far too short and showed little of the pent-up rivalry it deserved, but if that means leaving room for more good stuff, […]

Once Upon a Time “Quiet Minds”

The episode paid off in a lot of ways this week, but left us guessing in several others. It would be nice to have a better idea of what the Wicked Witch is after, yet the waiting is such sweet torment that I’m reluctant to see it end. Hopefully the […]

Once Upon A Time “The Tower”

This episode gave us a big piece of the puzzle, even though we’re a long way from seeing the finished picture. In the flashbacks to life in the Enchanted Forest, we see Prince Charming struggling with internal angst over becoming a father again. I have always admired the stroke of […]

Once Upon a Time “New York City Serenade”

At long last we have fresh episodes and can finally find out what Emma Swan has been doing all year! With all the sneak peeks and spoilers out there I’m sure most people know that the Wicked Witch makes an appearance in the second half of the season, but I […]
