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.

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.

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 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?

OUaT The Eighth Witch Alice Robin kiss

Lipsticks only. No exchanges.

Poor, poor Mulan.

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.

OUaT Hyperion Heights

Do you see now why Lost didn’t get a seventh season?

Just why, ABC?

Why are we here?

OUaT The Song in Your Heart Queenie villain song

Goddamn you, OUaT. You always know how to suck me back in.

Oh my god, you guys. It’s finally happening.

Several seasons beyond when it should have happened, and drowned in plot bullshit, but it’s happening.

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.

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?
