‘Once Upon a Time’ 6×18 recap: “Where Bluebirds Fly”

Once Upon a Time recap: Season 6, Episode 18 “Where Bluebirds Fly” aired April 23, 2017. I would be lying if I said I didn’t kind of die of fangirl feels last night. Mostly due to the Captain Swan opening scene. Besides that, it’s always good to see Zelena attempting to stay on the side […]

An Evil Queen turned hero: Regina Mills

A little secret…when I began watching Once Upon a Time, Regina Mills was my favorite character. I am a fan of villains, and Regina was just so complex and interesting. Obviously through the seasons my shift of favorite characters has shifted, but Regina still is awesome. Her sass speaks to me. Her love for Henry […]

Once Upon a Time recap: Season 6, episode 16, “Mother’s Little Helper” aired April 9, 2017. Wow. This was definitely in my top three favorite episodes of season 6. No, we did not get a Captain Swan reunion, but I guess I’ll overlook that because this episode was a stroke of genius. We learned all […]

The most charming of them all: David Nolan

Up until season 6, I never paid much attention to David’s character. I think I was too invested in Hook and Emma to even notice another character. However, I’m annoyed at myself that I never appreciated David up until this season because he’s a really solid character. In fact, he’s one of those characters where […]

Killian Jones: An unlikely hero we can’t help but love

When the word hero comes to mind, a pirate is not something that might pop into your head. However, if you’re a fan of Once Upon a Time, then it’s not weird to categorize a pirate as a hero. In fact, Captain Killian Jones, commonly known by his more “colorful moniker” of Hook, is an […]

‘Once Upon a Time’ 6×14 recap: “Page 23”

Once Upon a Time recap: Season 6, Episode 14, “Page 23” Aired March 26, 2017. Deep breaths, everyone. This is really for myself, but what a ride that episode was. And not one of those really fun rides, but the kind of ride you get off bawling your eyes. Fun times. So before I go all fangirl, […]

Emma Swan is the kick ass heroine we need

Whenever I hear the phrase “Emma Swan is weak”, I merely shake my head. Because we’re watching the same show, right? The Emma I know is the kick ass heroine that we all need. She’s a wonderful portrayal of a strong, brave and independent woman on TV, and I love that. So what makes Emma […]

‘Once Upon a Time’ 6×13 recap: “Ill-Boding Patterns”

Once Upon a Time recap: Season 6, Episode 13, “Ill-Boding Patterns” Aired March 19, 2017 The angst was so real in this week’s episode.

Once Upon a Time recap: Season 6, Episode 12, “Murder Most Foul” Aired March. 12, 2017   Let me preface this recap by saying that I am super overwhelmed by this episode. In a good way.

‘Once Upon a Time’: Fanfic and art that highlights the talents of the fandom

Fandoms have so much power. And with that power, comes creative musing from Once Upon a Time fan accounts. I will admit that I have a fandom account (did I say that out loud?), but because of that, it is how I came to discover all of the talent in fandoms. Oftentimes, when I get bored […]

Bare with me if some […]

‘Once Upon a Time’: Ranking Hook’s deaths from sad to heartbreaking

In all of the shows I have seen, never once has a character died or almost died seven times. That is until I started watching Once Upon a Time. No matter how or how often, Captain Hook never seems to actually let death take him. Like he’s told Emma, he’s a survivor. So I have […]
