Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time



There is a town in Maine. Where every story book character you’ve ever known is trapped between two worlds. Victims of a powerful curse. Only one knows the truth and only one can break her spell.

Once Upon a Time revolves around Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), a 28-year-old bail bonds collector that has been supporting herself from when she was abandoned as a baby. Things change for her when her son Henry (Jared Gilmore), who she abandoned years ago and gave him up, finds her and tells that he needs her help. He tells that she is really from a different world where she is really Snow White's (Ginnifer Goodwin) missing daughter. He shows that in the fairytale books, Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) and Snow White sent her away to protect her. The Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) cast a spell that trapped the fairytale world. Emma doesn't believe them and take Henry back to Storybrooke.

Once in the little town, she is strangely drawn to him and the town of Storybrooke. She is concerned and starts to see that Storybrooke is not what it seems. The longer she stays in the town, the more she suspects that the members of the town are not who they say they are. Even though the townspeople don't remember that they too were part of the fairytale, including Henry's foster mother who was once the Evil Queen, they slowly start to realize who they once were. The battle commences and if Emma wants to win, she is going to have to embrace who she once was and can be again. From the Creators of Lost, Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz have outdone themselves with a fairytale type story that comes in real life.

It’s become clear that showrunners Kitsis and Horrowitz have decided to tell their stories using the Lost model: focus on a single character and explore their story in both the present (Storybrooke) and the “past” (Fairy Tale). This is both a strength and a weakness because by focusing on a single character, you run the risk of ostracizing the audience who cares less for that individual (ex: me and Jiminy Cricket). It’s a strength, however, because unlike other shows that try to balance the narrative demands of a large ensemble (say The Walking Dead), Once Upon A Time guarantees that you’re provided background information on at least one or two characters each week.

As they argue, Hades arrives and reluctantly says that he needs their help. He shows them the note that Gold left him explaining that he and Peter abducted Zelena. They want a meeting with Hades so that Hades will tear up his contract for Gold's unborn child. Hades is willing to do it, but figures that his enemies won't keep their word unless he has an ace up his sleeve. He figures that Emma will help because he will offer her a deal. Hades points out that her family wouldn't be there except for her, and he'll take everyone's names off the headstones if she helps... read more.
