Episode 97: Devil’s Due – Once Upon a Time

The adventures continue in Once Upon a Time’s Underbrooke (yes, that’s its official name now), this week with a character study on Rumplestiltskin. We talk about his troubled past marriage with Milah in the Enchanted Forest and the surprising heart-to-heart between Rumple and Milah in the present-day Underworld. Then we discuss the episode’s big plot twist – it’s payback time for Rumple! – and we wonder whether there’s any chance we’ll see a redemption arc for Rumplestiltskin, or will his happy news push him further into his Dark One comfort zone? Also, we discover that Emma, Snow and Regina are all slated to stay in Hades’ literal hellhole – spooky! All of that plus listener letters and our favorite zingy one-liners!

Episode 95: Souls of the Departed – Once Upon a Podcast

Regina Mills in the underworld OUATOnce Upon a Time’s 100th episode was filled with exciting cameos in an eerie Underworld setting. Kicking off the episode, Neal comes back to let us know he’s not coming back. Then, Rumple’s Daddy issues are back to haunt him. But the real parental reunion comes with the appearance of Cora and some much-needed (and tearful) closure between Regina and her father. We enjoyed the midseason premiere and can’t wait to see more of what Hades has in store.
