OUAT Thoughts and Review: “Labor of Love”


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.

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!

So let’s begin with the first recap of the newest arc along with quotes, thoughts, and Most Valuable Resident.
