Regina/Evil Queen

For me this episode didn’t get a good start at all. And I’m not talking about the ep’s beginning itself; I’m talking about what happened before it. As mentioned countless times, I like spoilers. I read, watch, whatever them. And even though I try to not get every spoiler of ONCE, there’s still a lot I know beforehand. Now, spoilers are fine because usually they are made clever enough to only tease, often make waiting worse, and especially still keep the tension.
ABC, however, doesn’t seem to be able to do that. Before 2×16, they spoilt and teased A LOT. Including giving away the big “secret” of who’s gonna die. And yes, I think that was a secret because it could have worked; it could have left people on edge. But even for those who don’t read spoilers or don’t look at the countless set pictures from upcoming episodes’ shootings there wasn’t much of a secret left when ABC posted a picture with Rumple and Cora that said “One will die”. This was beyond stupid. Everyone knows that Rumple isn’t going to die; not permanently though, because let’s face it, he’s the most important character of this show, besides Emma maybe. Without Rumple OUAT wouldn’t work, period.

Manhattan is the episode everyone has been waiting for. Must be. Because it promised to finally reveal who Bae is in our world, and oh, how many speculations were out there about that? In the end, they proved to hold up; and yet was it exciting and surprising.

Once again, the new episodes of ONCE UPON A TIME seems more like a filler episode; a breather that lets us prepare for the bombs that are yet going to be dropped in the upcoming episodes. This is not means as a criticism. OUAT is a show that needs such eps now and then, otherwise it would become too hard to follow all the plots and events. Continue reading

I’m screaming again. Because that’s the only thing you can do after THAT episode. OH. MY. GOD. It’s not like the episode itself, the whole thing, was already exciting and had me on the edge of my seat. But – the last minute? BLOODY HELL. And yes, still screaming. And on the verge of tears.
Be aware that there are spoiler spaces in that review. I always do my best to avoid spoilers for upcoming episodes… I rarely ever succeed. This time, I needed to include an outlook to the next episode(s).

Oh yes, the wait was too long. Five weeks we had to go without OUAT; five weeks in which we were nevertheless tortured with spoilers, sneak peeks and the like. But, we did it. Because if there’s something worth waiting for, it certainly is ONCE UPON A TIME.
