ONCE is back, after a million years! And there are no more ice people! Just… Maleficent in the movie costume now, Ursula, who we never actually see in water, and… I still can’t figure this one out, but Cruella De Ville.
Okay. Fine. Whatever. Let’s get into it. The episode opens in a flashback in Maleficent’s castle, where URSULA is threatening her with… I dunno, tentacle porn, I guess… They are soon joined by Cruella DeVille, who immediately displays magical powers over dogs, and their meeting has been orchestrated (like just about everything in the series) by Rumplestiltskin… The fourth Queen of Darkness.
In this episode, we are treated to even more of a tease. DAMN IT, I want to see these mofos tear each other apart, already!
Maybe I need to stop following this show with TWD right away…
The episode opens with a young trio of sisters (Ingrid, et cetera) frolicking about a lush hillside, chasing a kite, which gets caught in a tree and torn. A man suddenly decides to kidnap and ransom them, but young Ingrid’s powers manifest in that moment and she accidentally kills the man. As she freaks out, her sisters still take her side and decide to keep her secret. They split the ribbon of the broken kite and claim it as a symbol of their sisterhood. Also, super crazy about young Ingrid being that little psycho Lizzy from “The Walking Dead.”
You guys… Mickey Mouse got GOT.
So, let’s talk about it.
This, I think, was one of the better episodes in terms of tying Disney mythology to the show in a subtle and believable (for a show about magic and fairytales and shit) way.
So… I recently Netflixed this series. I caught up to the show just in time for the season finale. And I have a problem.
And I’ve had this problem from the start.
So, no, I’m not going to talk about that little teaser at the end and the character they’re introducing next season. Because, really, until I see exactly what they do with her, I give zero fucks.
And I’m not going to talk about how positively irritating all this shit about Snow White and Charming and they’re star-crossed yet true love thing is. WE GET IT. They love each other. It took them a long time to get to that point. Do we have to keep having flashbacks and time travel and just basically revisit storylines that already super old and this show is only a few seasons in?!
