OUAT Thoughts and Review: “Only You” & “An Untold Story”

Standard

Season Five has officially come to an end.

From Camelot to the Underworld, our Fairy Tale heroes (and villains) have been many places. That certainly didn’t stop with the finale where the group was split between Land Without Magic and the Land of Untold Stories.

We met a new villain, reintroduced to another, and another villain stayed just about the same.

OUAT Thoughts and Review: “Labor of Love”

Standard

It seems like it has been forever since we had Snow White at the forefront of an episode.

After an episode, like this week’s, it reminds us why she is such a beloved character and why the relationship between her and Regina is one of the most flawed, but greatest, relationships that has truly grown before our eyes.

This week’s episode had us meeting the beloved Olympus hero and learned his history with a young Snow White. We also saw more of Hades and saw Hook fighting for his life to get back to Emma.

But, this episode was really all about Snow White, the former Mary Margaret, and how she made that transition back to the kick-ass hero we love.

See below for the recap of this week’s episode along with thoughts, a review, quotes, and (the obvious) winner of Most Valuable Resident.

Now let’s begin!
