Episode 105: Only You & An Untold Story – Once Upon a Time

We made it, everyone! We got through all the highs and lows, the twists and turns, and even a character death to cap off Once Upon a Time season five. Join us to talk about Henry and Violet’s adventure in the Big Apple and another Regina and Emma road trip in “Only You,” plus the very Disney and yet dark turns with the power of belief along with the introduction of new villains in “An Untold Story.”

We have as many questions as we do points of conversations, so join us for our last top five list of season 5!

Twice Upon a Podcast (104.5): Things go awry (When don’t they?)

Our full, post-show Once Upon a Podcast episode will be out on Tuesday!

Episode 104: Last Rites – Once Upon a Podcast

Once Upon a Time had some incredible highs and disappointing lows this week: Robin Hood’s ultimate sacrifice, and a surprise reunion between Captain Hook and Emma marked an emotional episode for both the characters and the audience. How did you feel about the developments and choices in the penultimate week of OUAT season 5? We have lots of thoughts – and so do our listeners – and theorize how these game-changing developments will impact the season finale and beyond. If there’s one thing that Once Upon a Time can guarantee, is more twists and cliffhangers.

  2. Listener Letters
  3. News and post-mortem interviews about this episode

Come along with us for a conversation about almost every detail in this action-filled Once Upon a Time episode (and bid adieu to the Underworld red filter)!

Episode 102: Sisters – Once Upon a Time

Did you feel it, everyone? That sisterly bond that brings us all together? Okay, maybe it just brings former evil queens and wicked witches together, but “Sisters” proved to be a meaty (albeit fast paced) episode that shed some light a secret Cora’s been keeping since Regina and her big sister were tweens. Once again, there’s an ace that Rumplestiltskin’s holding up his sleeve, and we see why Prince James just can’t let go of his anger toward David. We discuss all of this and other implications about what it means for people to go into that white light on this week’s Once Upon a Podcast episode.

  1. Welcome back to another week in the Underworld!
  2. Our Top 5s (5:20)

Episode 101: Ruby Slippers – Once Upon a Time

It’s time for a little romance for Ruby on this week’s Once Upon a Time! Although it was a bit of a whirlwind, we enjoyed the sweet romance between these two iconic fairy tale characters. Meanwhile, some couples didn’t have such a happy ending: Snow and Charming and Rumplestiltskin and Belle are separated again, and we continue to ponder whether we can trust Hades or if Zelena needs to just say no to his unique tokens of love.

Episode 100: Her Handsome Hero – Once Upon a Time

It’s our 100th podcast episode! We made it from Neverland to the Underworld and explored just about every OUAT realm in between. This week, we want to take time to reminisce, be thankful for the things we’ve done and for all of you! Without all of you listening and downloading, we’d never be celebrating such an awesome milestone. Thank you all for the time you let us take to keep you company at work, on your daily commutes, or as the last thing you listen to before heading to bed.

Of course we’ll also dig into “Her Handsome Hero,” including (attempting) to explore all of the complexities of Rumple and Belle, and try to decide what Hades is actually up to.

Episode 99: Our Decay – Once Upon a Podcast

Zelena and Hades: we’re on board this (decaying) ship. This week on Once Upon a Podcast, we’re discussing whether Hades is a trustworthy narrator, or if Zelena’s instincts are correct and he’s playing her. Speaking of instincts, Zelena’s motherly instincts just kicked in and if they’re going to give her a redemption arc, so far they’re doing it right. Plus, we can barely believe it as Rumplestiltskin comes clean and tells the truth (and nothing but the truth) with Belle… what a change! Join us for a discussion of one of our favorite episodes of 5B so far.

  1. Somehow we start out by reminiscing about old TV shows, and what if those shows took place in the Underworld?

  4. News (1:08:30)

Episode 98: The Brothers Jones – Once Upon a Podcast

This week we met up with Hook’s brother Liam in the Underworld. Plus, Henry the Author is back in business because he found the pen! But what are the implications of his first job beyond being an angsty teenager about it? Plus, there were more Cruella and Charming shenanigans (count us in for the Cruella-comments-on-the-Charming-and-James-reunion episode) for our viewing pleasure. How do you feel Once Upon a Time is going so far this season? Are you still wondering whether Hades will step up his game and stop slacking off and letting the Heroes win?
