Episode 127: Where Bluebirds Fly

We finally get to see more of Zelena this week on Once Upon a Time, learn about a different side to her past, and finally determine that she’s been redeemed. Meanwhile, despite all of the darkness lingering around Storybrooke, love is in the air and Snow White is more than enthusiastic to plan a dream wedding for her daughter. Yet, the Final Battle is still looming… and we can’t help but wonder if it’s getting almost too hyped up?

Episode 30: Kansas

Once Upon a Time Glinda Zelena Dorothy

Glinda, Zelena and Dorothy have a chat in Oz

“Kansas” transported us back to Oz where Zelena simply could not stop being a jealous troublemaker. We (briefly) met Dorothy, said hello to light magic-wielding Regina, had a beautiful Rumbelle moment that quickly turned sour and said a “wicked” goodbye. A lot happened in this episode and we attempted to break it all down and speculate what it might mean as we head into a our double-sized season finale next Sunday.

Episode 26: It’s Not Easy Being Green

Regina and the Wicked Witch on Once Upon a Time

It’s not easy being Greenie… or having a sister who made you green with envy.

The characters have taken things a little too literally: we found out that the Wicked Witch is literally green with envy and Regina literally gave Robin Hood her heart (let’s just hope he doesn’t literally break it.) Plus, we discuss the Once Upon a Time in Wonderland series finale.

  1. Welcome! Plus some Captain America and Ariel on SNL
  2. Our Top 5s: we talked about most of the main characters and their ongoing developments, including Hook, Emma, Rumbelle, Greenie and her backstory, Rumple and of course Regina and Robin Hood. (4:20)

Edited April 8th at 4:15 pm ET: We had a small technical flaw with the audio in the episode that was uploaded earlier today. That problem has been fixed. Sorry, folks! If you downloaded the episode before this afternoon but haven’t listened to it yet, you may want to re-download the new file. – Amanda

Episode 24: The Tower

Rumplestiltskin and Zelena have a mysterious chat
