    S04.E20: Lily

    No one knows that better than Regina.

    Funny how Lily got adopted quickly as a baby while no one wanted Emma for years. There's no explanation for that.

    S04.E20: Lily

    I think it would've been cool if Emma had been put into these kinds of situations where others think she's responsible for their happiness, only to push pack and call out the BS. Like, you see the flashbacks and think the show is framing it as Emma being a bad friend. But in the present, Emma confronts adult Lily and tells her that her choices are her own responsibility. I miss the "screw this" Emma who chopped down an apple tree or fired a gun at a dragon. Realistically, she should've kicked fate in the balls and disagreed vehemently with everyone else's insistence on following prophecies. That's supposed to be an integral part of her character.

    The problem was that there were waaaay too many of them. It's almost every single flashback Emma ever gets. It's the writers trying to over-sell that she had a hard life full of betrayal, and it's due in part to the "centric" format. Each character has a specific description and their centric needs to portray it. That's how you keep your characters two-dimensional archetypes and avoid creative risk at all cost. The whole connection thing with Lily and Emma feels like a different show. I didn't get the whole wolf thing. Lily's character gets a lot of mysterious introduction...

    Now that you point it out, that line really makes no sense. They kind of deserve each other.

    S04.E15: Enter The Dragon

    She also killed her own horse and took its heart for her curse.
  7. I'm honestly surprised Disney opted to have A&E write a Muppet series instead. That seems like the perfect platform for something like an OUAT reboot/spin-off. I suppose they could be waiting for more time to pass so people will eventually feel nostalgic and want to revisit it. Sadly, hardly anyone even remembers the show and it's only been cancelled for a year, LOL.

    Once Upon A...SHOULDA HAPPENED THIS WAY!

    Wasn't there speculation at one point that Maleficent was the Black Fairy, since she was a dark fairy in her original story? Of course, if that were the case, Rumple would've just called it "Maleficent's wand".

    Once Upon A...SHOULDA HAPPENED THIS WAY!

    I love how A&E said in interviews before every new arc that they'd be exploring, "What is a happy ending?" in upcoming episodes. It happened every single season and nothing ever came of it.

    Once Upon A...SHOULDA HAPPENED THIS WAY!

    I got so sick and tired of people complaining that Regina cant get her happy ending. Like, do y'all want her to never have any problems ever again? She got Robin, Henry, and the love of the Charmings. What more do they want? I couldn't believe we were still treading the same ground in the S5 finale with Regina again complaining about how life is unfair.

    Once Upon A...SHOULDA HAPPENED THIS WAY!

    If it were literally just Ursula, Cruella, and Maleficent coming to Storybrooke, it probably would've been a better arc. It would be unoriginal, mostly pointless, and just another Big Bad scenario, but it still would've been so much more palatable than Author/Eggbaby/Lily/Zarian.

    OUAT vs. Other Fairy Tales: Compare & Contrast

    Saw Captain Marvel. It had McKenna Grace in it playing a young Carol Danvers. (She's young Emma from OUAT.) It seems like she's been cast in a ton of stuff lately. Remember when A&E thought strong independent women needed to be stoic warrior types? The same thing seemed to be happening here. I really can't blame Brie Larson, since it's obvious she was working with what she was given. A lot of her dialogue was cringy. Her character really doesn't develop. She starts out as a "strong independent warrior" and ends as a "strong independent warrior", in the same vein as Merida, Mulan, and Dorothy. She does get a few vulnerable moments to keep her from being insufferably, and I didn't hate her, but writers seem to keep thinking they have to go that route in order to do strong female leads. In most cases, it makes characters downright unlikable. Thankfully, they stopped just shy of that in this film. It's just sad that a lack of creativity steers characters that way. (Flagging for spoilers, though it's really not much of a spoiler.)

    S04.E19: Sympathy For The De Vil

    Cruella was dumb for standing by a steep cliff like that, but even dumber for not considering Emma might call her bluff.

    I both agree and disagree with this because...
