Once Upon A Time Fall Finale Review: We Meet “The Eighth Witch”

I must apologize for my lack of an episode review last week. I was traveling and was not able to complete said review in a timely manner, so I will try to combine it with my thoughts on this week’s fall finale, since it will be awhile before the show comes back on. Once Upon A Time finally made some big reveals about its endgame, and what happened to all of these characters prior to the curse in "The Eighth Witch", and more than anything I’m relieved to finally have some answers. Needless to say, the reboot has been a big ask of long-time fans. There are only a few characters that fans have known for a long time that have returned, and the new family trees have been convoluted at best. If I recall correctly, it took the previous seasons of Once several years to develop the complicated family trees. However, the past couple of episodes ("The Eighth Witch" in particular) have snowballed some of the reveals and made some of the motivating actions much more clear. The family trees are still pretty muddy, but they’re starting to make more sense. READ MORE...

Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 10 Review: The Eighth Witch

The return of Zelena. The true villain(s) revealed. A crazy ending. Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 10 had it all. It was what we've all been waiting for from the ABC series since the controversial decision to reboot was made. Maybe I'm just a sucker for witches in general but making the true villains a coven of witches was a stroke of genius, and I cannot wait to see who else takes up residence in those The Handmaid's Tale -esque robes.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/12/once-upon-a-time-season-7-episode-10-review-the-eighth-witch/

Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 9 Review: One Little Tear

Victoria Belfreyis no longer a one-dimensional character, you guys! On Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 9 , we finally got some insight into the character, and we found out whether she had any relation to Rapunzel. The thing that irks me about all of it is that she is Rapunzel and Lady Tremaine. Instead of being shocking, it feels a bit like cheating and a little too much out of the Once Upon a Time wheelhouse to be believable. She's done too many horrible things for me to take her seriously as Rapunzel. Yes, she tried to play on the side of good initially, but what she became was something rotten to the core.   ...Read More... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/12/once-upon-a-time-season-7-episode-9-review-one-little-tear/

Once Upon A Time Review: “Eloise Gardener” Looks “Pretty In Blue”

I finally must admit something to myself that I hoped I’d never have to. I have to reconcile the fact that Once Upon A Time will never recapture the same sense of wonder and intrigue it possessed in its first two seasons. I have long been hoping they would be able to do it, since that sense of mystery is what hooked me to the series in the first place. However, now that I’ve admitted that they will never recapture it, Season 7 is now the closest they’ve ever come to recreating it. Off and on during the first few episodes, I felt something similar to watching the first few seasons. But watching the backstories of the familiar characters gave a different feeling. They were excellent episodes, but in a different way. Most recently, "Eloise Gardener" and "Pretty in Blue" evoked the strongest sense of intrigue I’ve felt watching Once Upon A Time in several years, and it was a feeling I’d truly missed. It may not have been on par with those original seasons, but it’s the best work they’ve done in some time. READ MORE...

Once Upon a Time Review: Who Is Eloise Gardener??

The race was on to find out more about Eloise Gardener on Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 7 and Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 8 , and we got a whole lot of answers. The biggest of which was that Hook was Alice's father after Eloise tricked him into having sex with her. I can't be the only one who was shocked when Rapunzel was revealed to be Eloise/Gothel.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/11/once-upon-a-time-season-7-episode-7-review-eloise-gardener/

Once Upon a Time: Weigh In on Rapunzel Twist, Visit to Wonderland

Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 6 Review: Wake Up Call

Poor Regina. On Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 6 , Roni found all of her memories as Regina rushing back after Drizellathought it would be a good idea to have her cause some drama. Watching Regina's coaching used against her by Drizella was fascinating. Regina thought she was doing some good in helping the youngster come to terms with the fact that she can be as powerful as she wants to be. While it was surprising that Drizella was born with magic, it made sense that she was the one to set the curse. All season long it has looked like Lady Tremaine was the one playing the other angle.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/11/once-upon-a-time-season-7-episode-6-review-wake-up-call/

Once Upon a Time Recap: Someone Else in Hyperion Heights is Awake
