OUAT Thoughts and Review: “Firebird”


True Love, betrayal? All in a day’s work for Once Upon A Time.

For Hades, he’ll do anything to get Zelena back even going to people he hates the most–the heroes. Of course, there were some ulterior motives on his end, but by episodes end Storybrooke was the destination for *almost* everyone.

Check out highlights from the episode, thoughts, opinions, and this week’s Most Valuable Resident in “Firebird.”

13 Times Storybrooke Should’ve Believed Henry about the Curse


Henry has spent much of his time in Storybrooke sitting on the sidelines while his parents and other family members have fought the battles against witches, Dark Ones, and much more.

But, before they were doing that they were a town of people who had no idea that they belonged in a world of fairy tales and heroes and villains. Henry was the one who brought Emma to town and Henry was also the one who spent months trying to get her and anyone to believe the truth of their pasts.

Now that Henry is older, he wants to join in and while his parents may not always agree, they should remember who brought them together in the first place: .

Below is a list of 13 different times where the town of Storybrooke should have listened to Henry and believe his seemingly far-fetched idea about the Dark Curse.

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.

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!
