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 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?

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.

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?

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.

Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 5 – TV Review

OUaT Street Rats Queenie manicure turban

Don’t lie to me, Queenie.

Yes, Queenie queens it up around town this episode. But she hangs out with Zelena while doing it.

Jettison that green ball and chain, Q. You don’t need her. You are virtually immortal, after all.

Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 4 – TV Review

OUaT Strange Case Queenie perfection

If we were going to be forced to have a female Frank N Furter, then here she is, casting agents. You missed her.

Just as an indicator of my yet-swelling level of fanboyism over Queenie, one of my notes for this episode was literally “God, she’s perfect.”

Even when she recycles a look from last episode, she’s still perfect.

Do we even need Regina, anymore?

OUaT Last Rites Regina Zelena crying

“Don’t cry for me, Reg ‘n ‘Lena.”

Those tears are not from me. I’ve already used all of mine up.

No, those tears are from Regina and Zelena for some very dead, and very wasted, men.

OUaT Labor of Love Cruella

But read “bark” as in, like, an over-exaggerated “back” in a fancy British accent.
Also, dog pun.

With Cora out of the way, I was worried we’d have to suffer a Fabulous Bitch Goddess vacuum.

Regina is way too friendly these days. And as camptacular as Queenie is in the flashbacks, she can’t affect anything important happening now.

So thank God OUaT threw us a bone with Cruella. After her “in car form only” snubbing last week, I didn’t expect it.

Once Upon a Time Season 5 Episode 12 – TV Review

OUaT Souls of the Departed Queenie

How can a show be both horribly desperate, and renewed for a sixth season at the same time?

Yes, for the second episode in a row (three month hiatus not withstanding), Once Upon a Time has had to lean on our enduring goodwill for Queenie.

She’s the only thing that’s actually gotten better with time on Once Upon a Time.
