Episode 70: Mother

OUAT episode 70 Cora and Regina MillsLike mother, like daughter, right? Well, maybe not. Thanks to this week’s Once Upon a Time we explore the themes of motherhood. First, another Queen of Darkness got her happy ending when Maleficent and Lily reunited. Snow and Emma mended ways (although the timing of this worries us.) And of course, the always-spectacular Cora returns in a flashback to show us more of her tenuous relationship with Regina, once again pushing Regina into her self-destructive habits. Then there’s Zelena, the Author and a barbecued date in the dungeon: so much in this episode, so let’s get started!

  1. Welcome to episode 70
  2. Top 5s
  3. The lighter side & listener letters
  4. News
  5. Only one more “Twice Upon a Podcast” left (join us Thursday) and then it’s FINALE time on Sunday.

Thanks for listening and brace yourselves for that finale!

Episode 64: Enter the Dragon

Regina and Maleficent Once Upon a TimeSo, remember that one time when the Evil Queen was hungover? This week, Once Upon a Time was filled with badass Queens of Darkness doing their thing: from games of chicken and mysterious trains to drunken nights together in a vault, hangover “cures,” dragon mojo, creepy Hooklestiltskin, sleeping curses and kidnapping puppets, this episode went places we never quite expected but didn’t actually mind. On this episode of Once Upon a Podcast, we break down every aspect of this OUAT episode in all of its glorious, over-the-top, subtext-y detail, and we respond to our many listener questions and comments in the process. Plus, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, your letters and comments and news about what is ahead in this twists-and-turns filled Once Upon a Time season. Now… let’s have some real fun.

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.
