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.
A lot happens in this episode… Probably because a lot didn’t happen in so many of the early episodes of this season. This wraps up the “Frozen” storyline, thank goodness, and introduces the fourth season’s second half’s conflict and new characters.
Anna, Elsa, and Kristoff are looking for a way home when Emma discovers that there is still a magical barrier around Storybrooke. Rumplestiltskin is still planning to make off with his wife and leave the town. He still has Hook’s heart as well. And, with her heart now safely back in her chest, Marian tells Regina that she understands that years have passed since she “died,” that Robin has moved on, that he and Regina and Robin love each other, and that she’ll respect her (former? ish?) husband’s choice of lover.
Okay, kids. I’m not going to recap this episode so much as rant about it.
So, if you’re not caught up, come check this out when you are. Otherwise, more after the jump.
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…
With the heaps of season and series premieres that accompany each fall, one show which I’ve been waiting for has been “Once Upon a Time.” I watch this show and treat it as something of a guilty pleasure; I don’t particularly enjoy it, it’s really not all that good, but I watch it weekly all the same, in the hopes that something really interesting will happen. The show’s creators, in an effort to make fans squee/to cash in on Disney’s biggest singular success in recent years, has hopped onto the “Frozen” bandwagon.
Naturally, I tuned in to watch what they would do with, apparently, everyone’s favourite sister duo.
(Spoilers after the bump.)
Casting news for OUaT broke recently, giving us the identitiies of the folks playing our favourite sisters from Arendelle and their Royal Ice Harvester and Deliverer.
Kristoff will be played by Scott Michael Foster, aged 29 and known for “Greek” and as a recurring character on “Chasing Life.”
