Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 4 – TV Review

OUaT Beauty Belle old

What was even the point then?

I think it’s time that I came to terms with the fact that Once Upon a Time didn’t reboot itself. Fuck me and my misinterpretation of the main cast exodus and pre-release press.

No, baby. This is more like The Vampire Diaries post-Elena.

And that ain’t good.

Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episodes 21 and 22 – TV Review

OUaT The Final Battle Regina Snow curse

I know that one’s a reach. Shut up.

Don’t cry for me because I’m fucking free. Free of OUaT, finally.

Well, of OUaT in its present form.

Season 7: God, why?

Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 19 – TV Review

OUaT The Black Fairy

It was simply one of the few good stills I could find.

The Black Fairy’s tragic backstory may not have been good. And may not have been satisfying. And may not have included the Blue Fairy, the only possibly compelling element, much.

But it sure was over quick.

OUaT offers us that mercy, at least.

Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 18 – TV Review

OUaT Where Bluebirds Fly Zelena angry face

At least it isn’t a Belle episode. Or a David episode. Right?

Yes, it’s a Zelena episode.

And a “magic does what we say it does” episode.

And a confirmation that the Black Fairy will have some tragic backstory episode.

And a wedding planning for Hook and Emma episode.

But still no Maleficent or Lily. Hmm.

Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 17 – TV Review

OUaT Awake Snow David everyone asleep

It’s like a fairytale come to life.

Just kidding. The only thing that’s dead is Once Upon a Time’s credibility.

And that was ages ago.

Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 16 – TV Review

OUaT Mother's Little Helper Black Fairy

We can’t all be fabulous drag queens.

I know this post is late this week. But I prioritised eating myself into a chocolate coma over OUaT.

Which I will argue was the better and healthier choice.

Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 15 – TV Review

OUaT A Wondrous Place Aladdin Jasmine True Love's kiss

Who?

Yes, at this dire moment when Hook has been torn from Emma, leaving her vulnerable to Gideon’s attacks, let’s spend an episode with Aladdin and Jasmine, and The Subplot That Literally Doesn’t Matter.

Also, let’s kill that Hook/Emma tension immediately, too.

Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 14 – TV Review

OUaT Page 23 Queenie

I’ve already lived through an OUaT without Queenie, and I didn’t like it.

Just one episode after restoring my faith that Once Upon a Time could be fun again, and Queenie is out of here.

Apparently, for good.

I feel personally attacked.

Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 13 – TV Review

OUaT Ill-boding Patterns Queenie

There are not many who can pretend to Katherine’s throne. Queenie is one of them.

Oh, thank God. Suicide watch aborted. Queenie is back.

Also something about Rumple’s past? Because there is apparently still more of that to explore?

Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 11 – TV Review

OUaT Tougher Than the Rest Emma defeats Gideon

It looks like a serious, dangerous moment. Which clearly wouldn’t be true.

If Gideon was still a baby, this scene would be a lot more fun.

Also, welcome back to OUaT. You have not been missed.
