Episode 56: Season 4A Wrap-up

Once Upon a Podcast OUATIn our first of five hiatus podcast episodes, we review the good, bad… and awkward of season 4A. From the Frozen story to the Rumbelle bombshell (how did such a huge story last all of 2 minutes), we talked about this Once Upon a Time season’s main highs and lows. We also speculate a bit about what is to come (following tons of new news items), and chat a lot about our holidays and other things we’re watching and paying attention to over this winter season. Come on down and survive the hiatus along with us!

  1. Our season 4A top 5s
  2. The lighter side, poll questions and some holiday and New Year’s themed Q&A
  3. News
  4. It’s a wrap! See you again in 2 weeks.

We have a couple of interesting podcast episodes planned for in January and February, so be sure to subscribe so you never miss out! See you again in two weeks, everyone, and have a great New Year!

Episode 55: Heroes and Villains

OUAT midseason finale Heroes and Villains

The Once Upon a Time midseason finale bid farewell to Frozen and introduced three sassy new lady villains

In the Once Upon a Time midseason finale, we said farewell to Frozen and hello to the Queens of Darkness: Ursula, Cruella, and Maleficent. But the real dark moment came from the Dark One himself: Rumplestiltskin and Belle shared a terrible and tearful goodbye at the town line (and as brokenhearted as you now are, we’re proud of you, Belle!) All that plus Hook gets his heart back, Elsa and Anna return to Arendelle, and a Robin and Regina separation that was dampened by some great moments between Regina, Emma and Henry who will be diving deeper into Operation Mongoose together. Join us for our Top 5s and lots of listener letters along with some interesting news about 4B.

Episode 49: Family Business

Belle faces the mirror in “Family Business”

We’re taking care of business with a debate about the re-Belle-ious Belle and whether we think she was “in character,” the many ways in which Rumple continues to be shady, and how if you think that other relationships on Once Upon a Time are complex, nothing really compares to the challenges that Rumbelle are going to have to deal with eventually! All of that plus we continue to love and theorize more about the Snow Queen.

Madam Mayor?

“Once Upon a Time” season 3 executive producer Eddy Kitsis reveals that Belle will play a new role in the upcoming season.

“[Belle’s role] becomes clear early on and is something we’re really excited to reveal,” says Kitsis.

The general theory is that Belle will become the new mayor of Storybrooke, now that Regina, Mr. Gold, Emma, David, and Mary Margaret are gone. But chances are, the first half of season 3 will be more focused on Neverland than Storybrooke.
