As a child I would watch Disney movies and sing and dance. My favorites were those of Robin Hood, Peter Pan, and The Little mermaid. Oh how I wish I could fly, fly away from my problems. I wish I could be in a different world and that all everything was better in song. Maybe that’s why I love to sing because it takes me to another place where I’m not scared and I can be me. Whether you were raised liking a fox, a mermaid, a lion, a princess, a prince, or a villain, we all have the same thoughts. We wish life was like a fairy tale.
One of my favorite TV shows Once Upon A Time has done a great way to explain to us what that would be like. Since this show is so complex with every episode I apologize for such a lengthy post. But it is hard to sum up each season without giving away pivotal points and “no way!” moments. If you aren’t watching Once Upon A Time its probably because you don’t want to be seen watching fairy tales and seem wimpy or less of a man or woman. On the contrary, this show delivers strong characters, and characters that fight for anything. So without further adieu here is what you are missing and a snapshot of what this show brings.
Emma Swan, a bail bonds person, is surprised on her birthday by her 10-year-old son Henry who she gave up for adoption. He then tells her he lives in place called Storybrooke, Maine. She then drives him back to his foster mother to find out things don’t seem right. As a “new” parent and as a bail bonds person she knows when something isnt right. As viewers, we can see who is who as this show does cut scenes from “the magical world” to the real world. The town is put under a curse by the Evil Queen to where the have differnet personas and dont remember the fairy tale world they came from. Emma stays a few days in this town at Grannys bed and breakfast that lays above the diner. Regina, Henry’s foster mother or the Evil Queen, does not like Emma because shes different and new. According to Henry, and his magical fairy tale book, his mother Emma is the Saviour and she must get everyone their happy endings. Throughout season 1, we are introduced to our favorite Disney princes, princesses, villans, and suppporting characters. Thou season 1 is a little slow ( most dramas are) we have to understand they are telling a story and introducing characters in the first part of the story. Jam packed in first season we see Prince Charming and Snow White wedding, how Emma was born, how the Evil Queen casted her sleeping curse and the curse that have them al stuck in the town, Prince Charmings back story, a little sneak at Rumplestiltskin. Meanwhile in our world we see how far true loves kiss goes, and how Emma and Regina battle for the safety of Henry. We also see how ones belief in magic can save a town from the Evil Queens curse. Everything else in season 1 is just dressing and suporting roles and stories for the actual storyline.
As season 2 starts we are open to seeing that Emma has lifted the curse and everyone has their memories back. But everything is not all roses aand sunshine especially in this fairy tale drama. Magic beans, portals, pirates, giants, ogres, and more magic unwind in this seasson. We find out more of the Evil Queens backstory and what made her so evil and that befor eit all started she was just girl in love. We also see how Rumplestiltskin ( or the crocodile) lived his life before when he was only a poor cowardly human that only cared for his boy and was willing to do anything to live for his family. As the story plays we also see that he meets Killigan Jones aka Hook and see a feud develop between the characters over Rumple’s wife. Thus, Killigan becomes Hook. In the real world Emma, and Snow White fall into a portal through the Mad Hatters hat after trying to fight off a wraith that Rumple had called to kill Regina. They fall into the Forbidden Forest and team up with Mulan and Aurora and beknown to them Hook. As Emma and Snow White try to find a way back to their loved ones they encounter fighting ogres, giants, and even Reginas evil mother. Emmas relationship with Hook grows and we see that Emma isnt that easy to be swooned. We see also that Emma unleashes some powers of her own. As they are able to get back through a portal by a magical bean we see they arent the only ones. Hook and Reginas mother Kora join in on the fun as well. The season comes to a close as the gang tries to find a way to defeat Kora ( since she is more evil than the Evil Queen) and we see how Rumple only wants to find his son. He creates a potion to do this ( since crossing the town border makes you forget your memories of his past life) and he brings along Emma and Henry for the ride. We find out where and who Rumples son is and as they come back more drama unfolds and people arent who they seem. With new characters brings in new conflict as Henrys life is in danger and he is basically kidnapped and taken through a portal to Neverland.
