Once Upon a Time 2-9: Queen of Hearts

I had some expectations going into tonight’s winter finale of Once Upon a Time. Those expectations were met, but we got some interesting pieces of the puzzle along the way. Once again, I am impressed by how the writers of this show are weaving together threads into a coherent whole. I don’t know how long they can keep this going, but the ride is so much fun along the way.

Oh yeah, and they made me feel sorry for Regina. I know. I never thought I would utter those words unqualified last year.

We’re going to start with the flashbacks. There wasn’t much to them, but what was there was pretty interesting.Read More »Once Upon a Time 2-9: Queen of Hearts

Once Upon a Time 2-1: Broken

Welcome back to Storybrooke from a long summer, my fellow Once Upon a Time fans.

Last year, I would watch the episode and immediately sit down to write my recap. Last night a friend hosted a viewing party, and by the time I got home, it was too late to write the recap. Frankly, that was okay because I was still trying to wrap my head around a few of the events. Frankly, trying to summarize it all is going to be hard. I feel so sorry for the poor guy who has to try to do that.

Oh wait. That’s me.

Seriously, don’t rely on my recap. This is one episode that must be watched. So shut down this page and find a way to actually watch this episode. It really is that good.

Ready now? I’m going to share my thoughts on things, but please remember that spoilers are going to start immediately if not sooner.Read More »Once Upon a Time 2-1: Broken
