Regina/Evil Queen

If there was ever an episode to fear to this day, OUAT’s second midseason finale qualifies as such. Now, as I said: To this day. I definitely don’t want to think about what that means for the season finale and following seasons…

Beware: This will include spoilers for episode 2×09 in the form of what I’ve seen in the promo.
With this episode, I had made the big mistake of watching about two minutes upfront. Usually, I only get the episode in the morning, since it is the middle of the night for us here when the shows are aired in the US. However, last Sunday night, the episode was on rather early, allowing me to catch a first glimpse at night before going to bed already… which was a massive mistake. I needed two hours to get my brain to shut up (and down) so I can go to sleep. But as said, I only watched about two minutes… so I was prepared for this episode, knowing brain overload was once again to come.
I had no idea.

ONCE UPON A TIME’s seventh episode of season two brought us a big step forward in the series mythology. And thus, I think it was kinda mean of Ed and Adam to have the episode storyline be about Ruby; have an episode plot at all, and not only the mythology plot.

So I introduced my co-blogger, Spooky, to ONCE UPON A TIME (actually I nagged her for weeks so that she didn’t have any chance but to watch the show *gg*) and watched the first season with her (again).

The higher the layer count you reach, the more details you spot, and still you won’t have seen everything. This is what happened to me – and I found some new things, plus I read some new spoilers for upcoming episodes. Continue reading

At first, I was about to criticize the lack of Regina and Rumple in the episode, since it seemed to me that an episode without at least one of these two misses this certain excitement and thrill the show usually has with their established goody-baddies.
Well. I was so wrong.

The title initially confused me. This sounded a bit like the slogan of something very evil. I don’t know what it reminds me of, but I know that it is something bad.

Well. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that with OUAT, it wasn’t exactly bad. Nevertheless OUAT’s latest episode left me with several questions I assume will be answered not right away, but over time, as they are quite essential, at least to my mind.

But let’s start at the beginning.

Finally. Finally. Even though I only started watching ONCE UPON A TIME not even a month back, the wait for the new season was way too long. But: I survived, somehow, just like so many other fans out there. And we were rewarded handsomely.
