Once Upon a Time Fans Are Flipping That Trump Cut Off Their Show

Everyone knows that the final few minutes of every Once Upon a Time episode can be make or break as the show drops pivotal moments in the final seconds -- be it a plot twist, a sudden death or even a new curse. That's obviously why fans were left a little angry when the final minutes of tonight's episode were preempted so President Donald Trump could address the nation about Syria.

In the final scene, Dr. Facilier (Daniel Francis) visited the newly imprisoned Hansel (Nathan Parsons) in jail, confirming that he was in fact the one that woke Hansel up, hoping he'd take out Mother Gothel (Emma Booth). Can't have any other witches in competition for that Dark One magic about to be up for grabs, right? Unfortunately, right as it appeared Dr. Facilier and Hansel were going to have a pretty nasty confrontation, the show was cut off to announce President Trump would be addressing the nation shortly.

Oncers were... less than happy about the unexpected interruption.


Once Upon a Time did return after 20 minutes following Trump's address, and Hansel did indeed have a struggle with Dr. Facilier... one that ended up being deadly for the burned witch-hunter. Facilier ended up using a voodoo doll to magically murder Hansel on the spot!

Once Upon a Time fans weren't the only ones screwed over by this preemption though. The break lasted well into the 9 o'clock hour, preempting the first chunk of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. too.

Once Upon a Time airs Fridays at 8/7c on ABC.

These people are not "pure morons". They are unhappy that presidential broadcast interrupted the show. Why is this so hard for you to comprehend?

There's also this thing called a text recap, which some of us write up in part for situations just like this.

You' d have to talk to TVCom about that. Assuming that they're talking to anyone. They won't let anyone put up recaps in both the community threads and the episode pages. You can't put images in the episode recaps, but the community thread reposts eventually meander off, and they're not tied to the episodes.

I suppose you could put a link to the community thread in the recap section. If only there was someone who could answer if you asked them that question. And many others...

And that's assuming 8-12 images were sufficient to provide visual.

And one wonders why many other countries's residents think that Americans are self-centered and only care about America rather than the world at large.
