  • NOW WITH MORE MAGIC!

    Once Upon a Time's Season 2 Premiere: (Literally) Falling Into Place

    When the purple smoke cleared, we were left with one of the best Season 2 premieres these bright eyes of mine have ever seen.

  • Episode Summary

    In the aftermath of Gold's actions at the wishing well, the people of Storybrooke must come to grips with the knowledge of what they once were... and are again. Meanwhile, in the fairytale world, Prince Phillip and his traveling companion, Mulan, face a dangerous opponent.

      Loved the episode- must disagree w/ Despina. If they kill off Regina there's only half a show! She's so much fun to watch! And she is Henry's "mom", so of course Emma has to be a hero and save her- it forces her to step up, because Emma doesn't want to hurt him.

      If FTL and Storybrooke timelines have finally converged, the action should pick up from last season. There will be FTL-Past and FTL-Present scenes, which may be confusing but fun to watch. Wonder if they can get Jefferson to fix the Hat?

    • Exciting comeback!

      8.0
      What a great start on the new season, I mean it felt stronger, tighter and an overall better show that it was in S1. In a way everything is bigger: the stakes are much higher, the special effects have improved a LOT and they managed to fix a lot of issues the first season had- the fact that at times it felt repetitive and predictable and that Storybrooke was never as interesting and fun as Fairy Land was - these have all been dealt with.

      - The wraith creature was a great addition and it looked great. It did remind me of the dementors from Harry Potter though. I was almost expecting a Patronus Charm to do the trick.

      - I'm pretty sure the guy from True Blood is Bae/Henry's dad...I really hope I'm wrong though.

      - Lana Parilla was just great this episode and I cheered when she got her powers back.

      - I was a bit disappointed that they didn't address what happened to August, but they will probably get to that.

      - I seriously don't get all the Aurora and Mulan hate.... it's only been one episode. Give the characters sometime to grow and see what they can bring to the story. I'm I the only one that thought that Jamie Chung (Mulan) was so stiff in her acting, maybe it's just the character? Another thing that bugged me was the fact that Mulan isn't a fairytale character, she was real and from China. I know the show follows Disney's interpretation of fairy tales since ABC is owned by Disney, but what's next Winnie the pooh?

      - Henry is still annoying. I did miss this whinny and inconsistent character ( seriously, so now he loves Regina? Since when?).

      - I like Rumple and Belle as a couple, but they have no chemistry whatsoever.moreless
