    It was good
  • Season 4 Promo!

  • Great finally

    Great show. If you have not figured out who the woman that came through the portal at the end, there are some really good clues. Remember. She was a blonde in a long blue dress and when she took off one of her gloves and extended her arm, she made ice form on the ground. I think she is the character Elsa from the Disney movie "Frozen". The blonde sister who had the power to form ice and make it snow. She wore a nearly identical dress as the woman was wearing that came out of the portal.moreless

    *Mini spoilers alert*

    I didn't even know it was the season finale (slipped my mind) and so I had my first surprise when it comprised of two episodes! Was kept on edge the whole time by Hook and Emma's adventure, so so so happy she is accepting her feelings for him, sorry that Neil had to go for them to have a shot though.

    Poor Regina, she did so much good this time and saved them from the Wicked Witch she deserved more than this, hope she doesn't go bad again. And seriously O M G about the new arrival?!

    Cannot wait for the next season !!! Some people think that season three was not good as compared to the first two, but I beg to differ. Actually I think they have been improving season after season, I remember being quite bored during season one and pausing for a while, only returning because I had nothing else to watch. But season three was different, I was ready to watch new episodes and mourning the breaks they took where new episodes were not released!

    Good work to the cast and brains behind this amazing show !!!moreless
  • You better hope you didn't bring anything else back.

    Be warned of episode spoilers before continuing...

    So that line I wrote above - I wonder if this means Evil Regina is back? I really kinda want that to be true - it is so promiising. But even if that is the case, it is definitely not the only thing that came back - a very cold someone is here to say the least. Shame we didn't see too much of her.

    I really loved the scenes with Emma and Hook rewriting history and I adored the reactions of Henry and co in Granny's Diner after they had returned, looking at the cahnged story book.

    But the thing that had me hooked throughout the entire episode was learning the mysterious woman's identity, as I felt sure that she was going to change things in a major way. It was not as I expected at all, but history has definitely not changed... although the future will!

    Regina is not happy at all, and nor should she be. I can't wait to see what she is going to do next!

    The only criticism is that Once never really has a suspenseful cliffhanger at the end of a season - they simply introduce us to the new storyline (like going to Neverland last year). However, the quality of the episode as a whole makes that unimportant.

    I'm still really excited - I can't wait to see the next season!moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Hook: Swan?
      Emma: Hook!
      Hook: What the hell are you doing? You're depriving me of a dashing rescue.
      Emma: Sorry. The only one who rescues me is me.

    • Emma: When Henry brought me to Storybrooke, he told me I was the savior. I didn't see what he was really doing. He was not bringing me back to break the curse. He was bringing me home.

    • Archie: It is my great honor to officiate this most lovely union. If you'd like to begin your vows.
      Belle: Rumplestiltskin... this thing we have, it's--it's never been easy. I've... I've lost you so many times. I've lost you to darkness, to weakness, and finally, to death. But now I realize... I realize that I have not spent my life losing you. I've spent my life finding you.
      Gold: Belle. when we met, I wasn't just unloved and unloving. I was an enemy of love. Love only brought me pain. My walls were up. But you brought them down. You brought me home. You brought life into my life and chased away all the darkness. And I vow to you I will never forget the distance between what I was and what I am. I owe more to you than I can ever say. How you can see the man behind the monster I will never know.
      Belle: But that monster is gone. And the man beneath him may be flawed... but we all are. And I love you for it. Sometimes the best book has the dustiest jacket. And sometimes the best teacup is chipped.
