‘Once Upon a Time’ season 4: Magic, romance, ice caves

In the neverending journey that is my OUAT rewatch, I am currently on 4B. I forgot how much I adored season 4 of the show, and it may be because Emma and Hook were just so coupley. Like, they were a real-life couple going on dates…fighting snow monsters…I also really dug the Queens of Darkness. […]

Spoiler-free gif reactions to ‘Manifest’ pilot

Check out our spoiler-free Manifest pilot gif reactions! When the first 9 minutes of Manifest dropped last week for the world to see, I just stared jaw-slacked at my laptop for a couple minutes, tears running down my face.

‘Once Upon a Time’ season 3 episodes that kept us on the edge

Okay, season 3 is, hands down, my favorite season of the series. The Neverland and Wicked Witch arcs were so cleverly done, and they both kept me on the edge of my seat. Talk about plot twists and angst that season. Also, Captain Swan in season 3 was just all kinds of glorious and angsty, […]

Our favorite ‘Once Upon a Time’ season 2 episodes

So, I may be a little biased about season 2 because that’s when Captain Hook made his entrance. And it also happens to be the season when I started shipping Captain Swan. However, this season really pumped up the intrigue and magical drama. Ah, how I miss the innuendo slinging villain that Hook was. 2×06 […]

‘Manifest’ is our fall show to look out for

I have been trying to get excited for a show now that Once Upon a Time has closed its book, but nothing really appealed to me. Until Manifest dopped their first trailer. Immediately, I was intrigued by the concept. Also, the fact that Josh Dallas is one of the stars of the show helped too. So here’s why we’ve […]

Fierce female TV and movie characters we love

While TV shows and movies are a great form of entertainment, they can also portray strong messages, such as strong, feminist characters. These women are strong, independent and aren’t afraid to go after what they want. All traits that the media should be teaching young men and women. Emma Swan (Once Upon a Time) It’s […]

Ships we love as much as Captain Swan

It’s been a month or so since we last Captain Swan. For the last time, might I add, and well, I miss them. However, there are still other ships out there just as great as them, both romantic and friendshipy. Is that a word? It is now. Obviously, no ship can come in the way […]

Why Captain Swan reigns as ‘Once Upon a Time’s’ ultimate ship

Oncers, you thought you saw (read) the last of me! Since I’ve had a couple weeks to digest the ending of an era, because it is an era, I have realized Captain Swan was the ultimate ship. Which I already knew, obviously, but the series finale really solidified how well-developed they were. We got everything between […]

Shows we would love to see Lana Parrilla in

Long live the Queen, one might say. As Once Upon a Time has concluded its seven-season run a little over a week ago, we are eager to see where the stars of the show will end up. Most notably, Regina Mills herself — Lana Parrilla. While we don’t have the inside scoop, we do have our own […]

‘Once Upon a Time’ series finale: “Leaving Storybrooke”

Once Upon a Time recap: Season 7, Episode 22, “Leaving Storybrooke,” aired May 18, 2018. Okay, I can explain the delay in this article. I needed time to digest the episode, as this is the last time I will ever recap for this fandom, and that’s simply too much to take in. Plus, after the episode, […]

Au revior, ‘Once Upon a Time’: Why we’ll miss it

*This post will be a bit more on the somber side and probably not as light-hearted as I write because I’m saying goodbye to my favorite show* As I sit here typing this, I am totally in denial that Once Upon a Time is ending in a mere 24 hours or so. Seven seasons. 155 episodes. Several […]

‘Once Upon a Time’ ships: Scenes that made us swoon

Once Upon a Time is one of those shows were there’s a ship for everyone. With that comes many swoon-worthy moments between these canon couples. For some, you may swoon over everything your ship does. For example, Captain Swan could literally just be standing there, and I’d be like “they’re so cute and perfect.” Captain Swan […]
