BS04 – S4E16 – Poor Unfortunate Soul

You may become a ‘Poor Unfortunate Soul’ if young Ursula’s song lured you to your death.  Ursula’s father, Poseidon, used Ursula’s singing voice to lure pirates to a deadly fate in hopes of avenging her mother’s death.  But, Ursula saw her voice as a gift, a way of keeping her mother’s spirit alive.  She teams up with Hook to take her to where her mother loved to sing, but Poseidon gets in the way. After taking away Hook’s chance of revenge against The Dark One, Hook takes what Ursula loves most: her singing voice, making her the villain she is today.  In Storybrooke, Hook offers Ursula her happy ending IF she tells him what Rumple’s plans are.  With the help of Ariel, Hook was able to restore Ursula’s voice which gave her her happy ending.  But, now that she is seen as a mole, will Ursula’s happy ending last?  Is this the last we see of Ursula?

BS04 – S4E15 – Enter the Dragon

‘Enter the Dragon’ and let the games begin.  As Regina goes undercover to find out what the Queens of Darkness are up to, she must gain their trust first.  A game of chicken called “Don’t be a Hero” only proves that Regina does not want to die.  Instead she offers a different kind of fun: drinking, burning and destruction.  This is not enough to gain their trust.  Regina’s true test is given by Maleficent: to kidnap Pinocchio.  This puts Regina in a great predicament because she made amends with Marco only to now steal his son away and hand him over to the villains.  But, if Regina fails this test, then she will never prove to the Queens that she is on their side. How far will Regina go as she struggles with her own redemption and proving her worth to the Queens? Read more…

BS04 – S4E14 – Unforgiven

Little by little, secrets are revealed, leaving some people ‘Unforgiven’.  We are taken to fairy tale land where the Queens of Darkness seek Snow and Charming to help stop Regina’s dark curse.  The only way to do this is to ask the Tree of Wisdom how to defeat Regina.  Only the most valiant ones have the power to ask the Tree of Wisdom anything which leads to Snow and Charming.  To everyone’s surprise, they are not as valiant as the Queens of Darkness think as the tree blasts them.  Maleficent reveals that Snow is with child and since her unborn child has the greatest potential for darkness, the Tree of Wisdom did not answer them.  Now, on to plan B.  Maleficent appears in Snow’s bedroom to reveal that she, too, is with child and wants to team up to stop Regina.  Snow refuses to work with Maleficent and does not want to use any dark means to save both their children.  Snow would rather risk the whole kingdom to protect her child from darkness.  What repercussions will there be for refusing to help Maleficent?

With ‘ Darkness on the Edge of Town ’, peaceful Storybrooke will be turned upside down.  Many years ago, the band of villains (Rumple, Cruella, Ursula and Maleficent) travel to Bald Mountain and combine their powers to obtain the curse for their happy ending.  But, not without Rumple double crossing the Queens of Darkness and leaving them to fend for themselves against the Chernobog.  In present day, Rumple now turns to the very people that he betrayed (Ursula and Cruella) to get back into Storybrooke.  Being the mastermind that he is, Rumple’s plan plays out and the 3 of them are able to enter Storybrooke, thanks to a deal Regina and Emma made with Cruella and Ursula.  We know they will regret this deal, but if Regina is on her road to redemption and happiness, how can she deprive villains who were less evil than her to the same?

Darkness In Storybrooke

Darkness In Storybrooke

Last year Storybrooke  was frozen over.  The Snow Queen came and caused  havoc all over town.  She cast the spell of shattered sight.  The spell caused all the residents to see the worst in each other.  Everyone wanted a happy ending and the Snow Queen was no exception.   She thought that happiness would come by forcing Emma and Elsa to re-create the family she had lost.  Emma showed mercy on the Snow Queen.  In the end the Snow Queen was redeemed.  She realized that she was not meant to build a new family. In the ultimate sacrifice her happy ending was found. She was reunited with her sisters.  Upon the Snow Queen’s death the spell is broken and peace was returned to the town.

Rumpelstiltskin faced his old battle between love and power.  When he chose to marry Belle I thought love had finally won.  However it seemed that all Rumpelstiltskin knew was manipulation and deceit.  He wanted to release himself from the bonds of the Dark One’s dagger.  He chose more power over his wife.  When Belle discovered she was deceived she used the dagger to push Rumpelstiltskin over the town line.  Storybooke’s  border is magical.  Once you cross it you can never return.

BS04 – S4E12 – Heroes and Villains

In Storybrooke, it’s not always clear who the “Heroes & Villains” are.  Some villains have changed and become heroes while others have just “evolved”.  Once seen as an evil villain, Regina finally gets her happy ending only for it to be ripped away from her in order to save Marian once again.  Can she ever get her true love from doing what’s right? Rumple, on the other hand, “takes” his happy ending but when Belle sees the truth, she drives Rumple out of Storybrooke, ruining his happy ending with Belle.  Can Rumple take his happy ending back? Maybe with the help from the Queens of Darkness, all villains can have their happy ending. Read more…

BS04 – S4EP9 – Smash The Mirror

Good things come to those who wait, even if you are the Snow Queen.  She can finally  “Smash the Mirror” and cast a spell on Storybrooke to turn everyone against each other.  But first, we are taken back to Arendelle where the Snow Queen makes a deal with the Apprentice.  In exchange for the Sorcerer’s hat, the Sorcerer must give the Snow Queen a magical “sister” to join her family.  The Snow Queen’s wish for a 3rd magical family member was almost disrupted when Emma turned to Rumplestiltskin to help her get rid of her powers.  Luckily, Elsa was there to stop Emma in time and the Snow Queen was able to bind the three of them with the yellow ribbons her and her sisters once had.  Will the yellow ribbons be strong enough to bind them together? Was Emma worth the wait? Read more…
