      After such a great season the last two episodes are just killing me. I wanted to punch every single character of this episode in the face. Especially Henry and Snow. Henry's character is being slowly destroyed right after the moment he met his father. He went from a really lovable child character to a complete idiot in 3 episodes. And Snow... Instead of being happy that she protected her family from a completely crazy b*tch, she now feels bad for simply have nothing else to say - the last two episodes have simply ruined the whole season.moreless

      Welcome to Storybrooke was a phenomenal episode of Once Upon a Time. I really enjoyed watching because more of the past was revealed in correlation to the present. The story was intriguing and full of character growth and plot twists. There were a few interesting surprises. I liked how everything played out and I certainly look forward to watching what happens next!!!!!!!!!
    • Spectacular back story!

      This was a phenomenal episode and I really loved it! With Regina being my favourite character, I was thrilled that this one was centered all around her, an d we explored some events about directly after the curse hit, which was nice because we haven't really seen that perido of time explored before.



      Some interesting events with Regina's character both in past and in present, culminating in a spectacular final scene! That last scene was done so brilliantly and I wonder if it will continue to play out that way! Will Snw really turn evil?



      Regina is just amazing! And in fact, so is everyone else! This episode was downright flawless and spectacular! I can't wait to see the next one!moreless

      I enjoyed watching this episode. Now we know why Regina wanted a child. She was lonely and was getting tired of the "Groundhog Day" activities. Prior to the end, I had a hunch that the stranger was Owen all grown up. So what did happen to his father? SInce time stopped for all of Storybrooke residents, did Owen's father not age?? Remember the episode that Snow gave up feeling and was ready to kill the Queen. Charming stopped her because he was told that one she started down the dark path it would prevent her from returning to her former self. Has this process begun??



      Keep those twists coming....
