Episode 125: Mother’s Little Helper (Once Upon a Time 6×16)

Season 6 Once Upon a Time

We dive back into the core mythology of Once Upon a Time: dark magic, Henry’s twisted family tree, Hook on an adventure that is going wrong at every turn, authors, saviors and the revelation that we’re on the last chapter of that Once Upon a Time book that started it all. We have so much fun theorizing and talking about what could be coming up in the next month, and wondering how all of those loose ends will be tied up. Could the entire series be wrapping up… or are we in for a dark curse to end all dark curses?

Episode 124: A Wondrous Place (Once Upon a Time 6×15)

OUAT a wondrous place episode agrabah aladdin and jasmine

Welcome back to another episode of fairy tale shenanigans. This week Once Upon a Time takes a magical carpet ride to places under the sea, deserted islands and Agrabah! Hook needs to get “crackin'” on getting back to Emma and clear up a really terrible misunderstanding. Jafar tries to explain his motivations regarding Agrabah, but do they really come across well? And does it even matter, because it looks like we’re done with the “Wondrous World,” after all. We also can’t forget to talk about ladies’ night at Aesop’s Tables (courtesy of Regina’s thrifty coupon cutting). Let’s chat!

Episode 123: Page 23

Once Upon a Time page 23Regina and the Evil Queen have a (literal) heart to heart on this week’s Once Upon a Time. This episode, named after the infamous page that was supposed to have foretold Regina’s romantic destiny with Robin Hood, wrapped up two plots in one: what was to be done about the Evil Queen roaming around town, and what would happen to the wish world Robin Hood who wasn’t a fan of remaining in Storybrooke? Plus, Dead Men Tell No Tales: Emma and Hook finally had that little chat about a skeleton in Hook’s closet, and while things are looking shaky for the couple, at least fans can hope for a more romantic proposal than the one we got last week.

Episode 122: Ill-Boding Patterns (Once Upon a Time 6×13)

Once Upon a Time season 6

This Once Upon a Time episode didn’t bode too well in our minds, although it does prompt a lot of theorizing and questions on our part: what is the Black Fairy’s deal? Are Rumple and Belle on the road to recovery? How cheated should Captain Swan fans feel after that less-than-romantic proposal? And do Regina and this Robin have any future together, or is the Evil Queen going to run off to find her happily ever after with Robin? Join us and let’s try to figure out the OUAT writers’ plan together!

Episode 121: A Murder Most Foul (Once Upon a Time 6×12)

OUAT murder most foulWhoa, who saw that coming?! This week, Once Upon a Time finally revisited a part of Prince Charming’s backstory, the story of his father, which ended with an unexpected twist. Let’s talk about how Josh Dallas rocked this week’s episode and had a (well-deserved) breakdown. Hook was there to valiantly save the day and their bromance was strong until… well, it wasn’t. This week also prompted even more theorizing about the romance (or lack thereof) between Regina and Robin Hood. This show is setting up plenty of mysteries, and for better or for worse, we’re here to try to decode all of them. Plus, we talk about some news that might give hints about what OUAT has up its sleeves beyond this season.

Episode 120: Tougher Than The Rest (Once Upon a Time 6×11)

season 6 episode 11 ouat

Welcome to our first regular episode back from the (seemingly) lengthy Once Upon a Time hiatus! This week follows Emma and Regina’s adventures in the Wish Realm and Regina’s side quest to properly reunite with Robin Hood. Meanwhile, back in Storybrooke, apparently there’s a war coming, what with Gideon being hell bent on killing the Savior. OUAT is definitely setting us up for something big, and Amanda and Brittany are here to talk about it all, including paunchy Captain Hook and what technically counts as a True Love’s Kiss. Welcome back, Oncers!

Episode 119: Once Upon a Time Season 6 Returns!

once upon a podcast brittany and amanda

Surprise! Welcome to a new episode of Once Upon a Podcast. We’re gearing up for the next half of Once Upon a Time season 6, which starts this Sunday night, March 5. Let’s talk about all of the new details we’ve heard since the show went on hiatus last December. We’re ESPECIALLY excited about that OUAT musical episode that is coming up this spring, along with new characters, returning guest stars, and new challenges for our beloved group of fairytale characters.

Episode 118: Wish You Were Here (Once Upon a Time 6×10)

OUAT season 6

In Once Upon a Time’s midseason-six finale, we once again dove into a magical alternate universe along with Emma and Regina, who were wished into a land where the dark curse – and Emma being the savior – never happened. While this scenario led to one of our favorite Rumplestiltskin scenes, we hope Regina’s wake of destruction won’t come back to haunt her. Oh, and a certain someone who we thought was long gone made an appearance… so let’s speculate about what that could imply for next season. Meanwhile, Belle and Rumple were driven together by the knowledge that their son had disappeared from the Blue Fairy’s care, and before we knew it, a mysterious hooded figure emerged to deliver the second major twist in this episode. We thought that this episode and season had some ups and downs, so join us and see if you agree in our overall impressions!

Episode 117: The Changelings (Once Upon a Time 6×09)

once upon a time podcast

Babies, fairies, and an Evil Queen who is definitely not making any of this easier: Once Upon a Time has once again complicated life for the people of Storybrooke. This week, the series focused on Belle and Rumple – and how their version of Beauty and the Beast might not have the happy ending of its fairy tale counterpart. Meanwhile, Emma and Hook are trying to figure out the mystery of the sword from her vision and Aladdin and Jasmine are still pondering how they could find, not to mention save, Agrabah. We’re going to talk about the odds that these characters will be able to work their way through their problems, as well as chat about what might be coming up in next week’s mid-season finale (and beyond). Who’s up for a wild theory or two?

Episode 116: I’ll Be Your Mirror (Once Upon a Time 6×08)

Once Upon a Time television podcast

The people of Storybrooke need to stop conspiring against the Evil Queen, because it continues to backfire in disastrous ways. This week on Once Upon a Time, Emma and Regina were banished to a realm containing all of the mirrors of Storybrooke, while the Evil Queen imitated Regina around town and tried to get Henry to join the Dark Side. (That plan also backfired). Also, we adored the Snow and Charming montage, but how are they going to break out of the never-ending cycle that the Queen cursed them to endure? Let’s look into the magical mirror and try to figure out what is in store in the last few episodes before the mid-season break.

Episode 115: Heartless (Once Upon a Time 6×07)

Once Upon a Time Podcast
Once Upon a Time revisited the fact that Charming and Snow share a heart, and who better to use it against them than the Evil Queen? This week on the podcast we talk about that diabolical plot twist along with a beautiful Snow and Charming backstory that reminded us that they are the ultimate television True Love couple. Plus, Gold and Queen finally get down to business (and the fandom collectively cringes), we break down Regina’s meek new personality, and let’s talk about Zelena’s envy and Gold’s conversation with Belle.
 

Episode 114: Dark Waters (Once Upon a Time 6×06)

Captain Hook and Captain Nemo

This week, Once Upon a Time dove 10,000 leagues under the sea and into a part of Hook’s backstory that we haven’t seen. We revisit Liam 2.0 (remember Hook’s younger half-brother?) and meet his adoptive father, but the reunion is not smooth sailing between the brothers. How are you feeling about how this season is shaping up? Do you think that Once Upon a Time is still offering up new and exciting adventures, or has it recycled a few too many themes? We’re debating that question this week, so feel free to weigh in!

Episode 113: Street Rats (Once Upon a Time 6×05)

Once Upon a Time podcast season 6

This week Once Upon a Time takes us to Agrabah, and we meet the fabled Aladdin and Jasmine! Do you think it’s the last we’ll see of Aladdin and Jasmine or did the episode leave you wishing for more magical carpet rides? We also discuss Henry’s guilt and whether Emma is right to continue with her savior duties – or if Hook had a good idea in taking the scissors to save for a rainy day. Plus, we’re still trying to figure out whether the Evil Queen has any motive at all for her shenanigans.

Episode 112: Strange Case (Once Upon a Time 6×04)

podcast about once upon a time tv show

Strange, indeed. This week, the case of Jekyll and Hyde was wrapped up in a most unexpected way, with potentially disastrous implications for Regina. We love how Once Upon a Time also continues to deliver the cutesy Storybrooke moments with Snow jumping back into her teaching career and learning that being true to herself will help her students (who, incidentally, haven’t been to school in ages) learn something. Jasmine makes a surprise appearance, but we wonder why she is so mysterious?Meanwhile, Rumplestiltskin and Belle continue to struggle to get along and there are more failed attempts by Rumplestiltskin to change Belle’s mind… we discuss what is next for those crazy kids.

Episode 111: The Other Shoe (Once Upon a Time 6×03)

Cinderella in Once Upon a Time

This week we dive (back) into a familiar story, Cinderella! 6 seasons later, we are walking in Cinderella’s glass shoes again. The two of us discuss whether we enjoyed this twist on the popular tale. Plus, let’s talk about substantial storylines and dark mysteries for the Charmings, what the Evil Queen’s deal is, and of course, Emma decides there’s no time like the present when it comes to her life with Hook. How do you feel Once Upon a Time is going so far this season? If the ratings are any indication, this tv season seems to be a favorite for a lot of viewers.
