ONCE UPON A TIME Teasers and Preview: A Party in Camelot

once upon a time

At the end of the season premiere of ONCE UPON A TIME, we saw the Charmings and their allies walk into Camelot with King Arthur. Six weeks later, they returned home to Storybrooke (with no memory of what had transpired since they walked through the majestic gates) and the surprise of a lifetime: Emma had fulled embraced her darkness.

What happened during those six weeks? It looks like that’s the mystery the show will unravel over the next several months and that will begin with the next episode, titled “The Price”. Here’s what ABC hints is to come: “In an effort to protect Emma, Regina steps up in a surprising way that will test her mettle as a force for good. King Arthur and Queen Guinevere throw a royal ball to welcome the heroes to Camelot, but when the celebration takes a deadly turn, David and Robin must leap into action or lose a crucial asset in the fight to save Emma. Back in Storybrooke, Hook deploys a tried-and-true technique in hopes of bringing Emma back to the light while the heroes discover that some unexpected baggage has followed them home from Camelot.”

ONCE UPON A TIME Season 5 Premiere Teasers: The Darkness is Coming

Once Upon a Time

Dark Swan will play a big role on this season of ONCE UPON A TIME and our heroes and villains will team up together to try and stop Emma from giving in to the darkness. Will they ultimately be successful? It’s impossible to tell, but Emma’s journey towards darkness is an interesting one. After having screened the season 5 premiere, we have some spoilers to share with you.

The Camelot Connection. It’s clear that Camelot is going to play a big role this season. In fact, the first scene of the episode involves a young Emma going to see the Disney movie “The Sword in the Stone” and receiving a dark warning. Years later, in another land, we see Arthur and Lancelot as Arthur is on the hunt for Excalibur. You’ll soon come to realize that Excalibur has a very interesting connection to the ONCE UPON A TIME mythology we’ve come to know and you will also get a peek at the fabled kingdom. In fact, it’s going to be play a big role in the season’s mysterious storyline.

Fighting the Darkness. Emma, meanwhile, surfaces in the Enchanted Forest after emerging from a puddle of black goo. It’s there she meets Rumple. Well, actually, it’s not really Rumple — it’s a manifestation of the Dark One’s powers that is masquerading as Rumple. Needed to say, he’s whispering evil nothings in her ears and trying to get her to give in to both darkness and magic.

Merida the Brave. Pixar’s Merida is introduced quickly in the premiere when she and Emma cross paths. We’ll learn what happened to her family and why she’s trekking through the Enchanted Forest.

Deal with the Devil. As Emma makes her way through the forest, Regina, Hook, Robin and the Charmings are back in Storybrooke and desperately trying to figure out how to get to Emma. The Apprentice gives them a wand that will help, but they soon realize they’ll need to work with an old enemy in order to succeed. Naturally, things don’t go well with that, but our heroes and villains do set out for the forest themselves (with an amusing meta moment by Leroy and the dwarves).

A New Mystery. As mentioned, there’s a big mystery that’s set up by the end of the episode. We won’t spoil the details, but let’s just say that something ominous occurs and it’s clear that everyone will be mulling over what happened for weeks to come.

Meanwhile, in the Enchanted Forest, Emma struggles to resist her dark urges as she searches for Merlin in the hope that he can stop her transformation.

Our Top 5 TV Characters in Desperate Need of a Little (or a Lotta) Love


Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, meaning it’s the time for love. When I think of love, I don’t always immediately think of our favorite couples. Sometimes I think of our favorite characters who may not have love in their lives but damnit, deserve it. So without further ado, here is our top 5 list of television characters that need love in their lives!

Klaus, The Originals
I completely get that The Originals is different then The Vampire Diaries and it’s not all about the romantic relationships of the main characters. It just seems like Klaus thinks he doesn’t deserve love or that feeling love will make him weak. This makes me want to give him a big hug and say that everyone (even a murderer like him) deserves love. Plus, how much longer can the writers ignore the fact that Cami and Klaus have so much chemistry that it oozes out of every viewers’ TV. Klaus protects Cami at every turn so why do all that if he’s not going to get the payoff of some loving..? [Read more...]

ONCE UPON A TIME Opinion: “The Charmings” Are Two of the Best Parents on Television


After watching Sunday’s episode of ONCE UPON A TIME, I found myself asking the question: Are Snow White and Prince Charming (David) the best parents on television? If you think not, can there be an argument to the statement that they are the most adorable parents on television?

I’ve always thought the dynamic between Emma and her parents was one of the best things about this show. It’s such an interesting relationship and one that I haven’t seen before. Sure, there have been shows that have reunited parents and children after years apart but when they were reunited were the parents and child the same age..? I think not. [Read more...]
