Regina and Henry’s relationship has blossomed over the years to one of the strongest mother/son bonds on television, showcasing the love between an adoptive parent and child.
The final chapter of Once Upon a Time has begun. The long hiatus has come to an end, as the veteran show kicked off the second half of its seventh season in an episode that revealed how Zelena came to the new ‘verse and got her magic back — the character’s reasons, that is. We all know they brought back Bex because she’s amazing…and her fanbase is huge.
This is a tricky one. On one hand, this season of Once Upon a Time is actually ten times better than the series has been for the last few years. On the other hand, you got rid of 66% of the beloved cast, and there are people that are very upset. That being said, the ratings are in the toilet. Can Once Upon a Time recover from this? I don’t know. I’ve seen it done before. Sometimes, fan favorites, regardless of how crappy their numbers are, get the renewal anyway. This will come down to if ABC really wants to invest. Of course, with the graveyard slot it, seems like the network’s faith in the fairytale drama is fading.
The two-episode sign-off before the three-week hiatus featured yet another male character being raped without so much as an utterance of the assault. This lack of sensitivity that Once Upon a Time has shown — multiple times — is majorly problematic, especially since a huge part of the fanbase is made up of children.
The thought of a Regina/Roni/Lana Parrilla centric episode sends a wave of excitement through the fandom — for good reason. She’s easily one of the strongest actors on this show and has carried it from the start. This episode of Once Upon a Time was no different. The question remains, where the hell is her Emmy?
Princess Tiana got to take center stage, as her story starts to unfold on Once Upon a Time. See how she owned up to her nature and became a badass princess, like all the other women on this show… at least how they started — Emma Swan I’m looking at you.
