Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 22 – TV Review

OUaT Leaving Storybrooke Regina Robin

Well, to be fair, Regina is the one that got me. Bitch.

It’s finally over. And for all my venom and bluster against this show over the years, there will be no gravedancing like there was with PLL.

Sure, even right to the very end this episode is full of plot contrivances and last minute twists that come out of nowhere. But amid all that, Once Upon a Time, much like it has for almost its entire run, found the one true thing within it all:

Regina.

Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 21 – TV Review

OUaT Homecoming Cruella

Does being a Wish Realm copy count as being back, though?

I thought that this was going to be a trademark OUaT double episode finale, so let me just start by saying how grateful I am that it wasn’t.

Nobody deserves to sit through two hours of OUaT.

Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 20 – TV Review

OUaT Is This Henry Mills? Regina hair

I’d say they were due to flashbacks, but that wouldn’t be entirely accurate.

You know what would make this already-strained by too many new, unnecessary characters soap opera in its long-past-due seventh season with a half-in-half-out reboot more grounded and relatable?

Time travel. Of course.

OUaT Flower Child Gothel tree nymph wig

Much like OUaT itself.

I mean, I suppose I should be impressed that even OUaT didn’t seem to care about Gothel’s tragic backstory episode.

Because I know I don’t.

Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 18 – TV Review

OUaT The Guardian Gold Samdi gunpoint

Maybe next time he’ll actually pull the trigger, though.

My advice about shooting people was for Samdi, but if Gold wants to take it on board, then I can live with that.

What I can’t live with is more tedious, empty episodes of OUaT.

And yet somehow I’m not dead. Am I immortal? Or just hyperbolic?

Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 17 – TV Review

OUaT Chosen Sabine

It’s what Henry deserves. Because Sabine/Tiana should have been our lead and no I won’t stop saying it.

Don’t get your hopes up too much, people. The above image is deceptive.

It’s actually a Zelena episode.

But possibly the final Zelena episode?

Okay, I’m in. You got me.

Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 16 – TV Review

OUaT Breadcrumbs Sabine Rogers

I am the queen of recycling.

But why does an episode titled “Breadcrumbs” and ostensibly about the reveal of Hansel’s identity have unrelated, bland Henry flashbacks?

Or am I expecting a little too much out of OUaT to give reasons for why the flashbacks are bland?

Yeah. I’m seven season in at this point. I should know better. Sorry.
