Episode 54: Shattered Sight

Evil Queen and Snow Queen in Shattered Sight

Farewell to the Snow Queen, and we missed you too, Evil Queen.

This penultimate episode of Once Upon a Time season 4A had a bittersweet (and Titanic-esque) goodbye to the amazing Snow Queen, which means we also had to say a sad farewell to the fantastic Elizabeth Mitchell. Nonetheless, we were satisfied by her overall story (and refreshing redemption), and discuss some possible implications this might have on other villains (particularly Regina) in the overall Once Upon a Time storyline. Plus, we laughed, we cried, then we laughed some more at cursed!Regina, Snow and Charming… we wish we had the directors’ cut of that sequence! Join us for an anything-but-subtle podcast discussion of this episode.

Episode 53: Fall

Once upon a Time Fall

A curse falls on Storybrooke

Did you fall in love with this Once Upon a Time episode – or at least those cool mirrors and the purple curse storm clouds? In Storybrooke, everyone prepares for the curse of Shattered Sight, which fell upon the town in spectacular (and Disney-esque) fashion. Brittany wasn’t so sure about this episode, while Amanda really enjoyed the show… especially those tense and dramatic final moments.

With only 1 more episode to go between this and the Once Upon a Time season 4A finale (and we literally have no idea what’s going to happen other than some major drama in town next week), join us for discussion, speculation, news and theories to gear up for the end of the season!

Episode 49: Family Business

Belle and mirror in Once Upon a Time

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.
