 Once Upon A Time


What is OUAT you ask? I'll tell you or maybe you can watch for yourself. 



        Words can't describe Once Upon A Time. To any real oncer it's very difficult to explain six years of the most amazing show ever. But I will tell you one thing, OUAT writers targeted young teenage girls but they got something unexpected. Ages 8-60 watch this show. My grandmother's sixty and she watches it. My cousin is eight and he watches it. Over the years bad things have happened though, the rates have rapidly declined and sadly for me two years of wonderful fairy tales is coming to an end. My heart breaks with all the dedicated fans as we watch our favorite show come to an end. As we watch our favorite show whither away, die and then possible reboot for a seventh season. 

       I don't really know where to start but this show you can't just jump in or you won't understand. You have to start from the beginning and add every piece of boring information, definitions and try to get people to understand the beginning before you really start. Let's start with how I managed to tumble upon this when I was twelve. In seventh grade I loved Disney and wanted something modern. So I searched YouTube for modern day fairytales. Way on the like 18th page of YouTube I found this scene. I clicked on it and about died, when Regina walked in I was like, I went total fangirl. I watched the first season in a week, I was caught up in three weeks and it cost me a few good grades. Season Four and Five I watched clips on YouTube.  I watched the beginning of Season six and clips of the ending. 

       In two years I have come to know each character, I've been sucked into the vortex of what most of you know from your boy bands. I've wanted to meet them for months, it has seemed like years. If I could meet two people it would be Rebecca Mader and Lana Parrilla. Okay, introduction finished let's get into depth. What is OUAT? Well I'll tell you. Are you ready? Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy ride. 



    Once Upon a Time....(OUAT) is an American fairy tale television series that premiered on October 23, 2011, on ABC. The show takes place in the fictional seaside town of Storybrooke, Maine, whose residents are characters from various fairy tales transported to the "real world" town and robbed of their real memories by a powerful curse. It follows the heroine Emma Swan as she protects the town and its inhabitants from various curses and villains, sometimes involving traveling to other realms. Most episodes involve flashbacks telling its numerous characters' stories. 

The series takes place in the fictional seaside town of Storybrooke, Maine, in which the residents are actually characters from various fairy tales and other stories that were transported to the "real world" town and robbed of their original memories by the Evil Queen Regina (Lana Parrilla) who used a powerful curse obtained from Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle). The residents of Storybrooke, where Regina is its mayor, have lived an unchanging existence for 28 years, unaware of their own lack of aging. The town's only hope lies with a bail-bonds person named Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), the daughter of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas), who was transported from the Enchanted Forest to our world via a magic tree as an infant before she could be cursed. As such, she is the only person who can break the curse and restore the characters' lost memories. She is aided by her son, Henry (Jared S. Gilmore), with whom she has recently reunited after giving him up for adoption upon his birth, and his Once Upon a Time book of fairy tales that holds the key to breaking the curse. Henry is also the adopted son of Regina, providing a source of both conflict and common interest between the two women.

Episodes usually have one segment that details the characters' past lives that, when serialized, adds a piece to the puzzle about the characters and their connection to the events that preceded the curse and its consequences. The other, set in the present day, follows a similar pattern with a different outcome but also offers similar insights.


The Evil Queen interrupts the wedding of Snow White and Prince Charming to announce that she will cast a curse on everyone that will leave her with the only happy ending. The majority of the fairy tale characters are transported to the town of Storybrooke, Maine, where they have been stripped of their original memories and identities as fairy tale characters. On her 28th birthday, Emma Swan, the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, is brought to Storybrooke by her biological son Henry Mills in the hopes of breaking the curse cast by his adoptive mother, the Evil Queen Regina.


Despite Emma having broken the curse, the characters are not returned to the fairy tale world, and must deal with their own dual identities. With the introduction of magic into Storybrooke by Mr. Gold, the fates of the two worlds become intertwined, and new threats emerge in the form of Captain Hook, Regina's mother Cora , also known as the Queen of Hearts, and sinister operatives from our world with an agenda to destroy magic.


In the first volume, the main characters travel to Neverland to rescue Henry, who has been kidnapped by Peter Pan  as part of a plan to obtain the "Heart of the Truest Believer" from him. Their increasing power struggle with Pan continues in Storybrooke, which ultimately results in the complete reversal of the original curse. All the characters are returned to their original worlds, leaving Emma and Henry to escape to New York City. In the second volume, the characters are mysteriously brought back to a recreated Storybrooke with their memories of the previous year removed, and the envious Wicked Witch of the West from the Land of Oz appears with a plan to change the past. Once again, Emma is needed to save her family.


 A new storyline incorporating elements from Frozen was revealed when the time travel events of the previous season lead to the accidental arrival of Elsa (from the Enchanted Forest of the past to present-day Storybrooke. As she searches for her sister Anna with the aid of the main characters, they encounter the Snow Queen.Meanwhile, Regina seeks the Author of Henry's Once Upon a Time book so that she can finally have her happy ending. However, Mr. Gold, with the help of Cruella De Vil , Maleficentand Ursula, has his own plan to rewrite the rules governing the fates of all heroes and villains. Henry and Emma race to restore reality and the truth before the twisted inversion becomes permanent. However, the price leads to the ultimate sacrifice.​


 The characters embark on a quest to Camelot to find the Sorcerer Merlin in order to free Emma from the powers of an ancient darkness that threatens to destroy everything. To complicate matters, King Arthur is determined to forever alter the balance between light and darkness using the legendary Excalibur. As history and destiny collide, unsuspected consequences lead the characters to the Underworld where they encounter souls of those with unfinished business and must face Hades ) In an attempt to restore order to the chaos that has culminated, the characters' dangerous manipulations of magic lead to an exacerbation of the war between light and darkness, with the separation of Regina and her Evil Queen persona, as well as the arrival of Dr. Jekyll  and Mr. Hyde 


 The characters must defend Storybrooke from the combined threat of Mr. Hyde and an unleashed Evil Queen while the mysterious fate of saviors leads to Emma learning about Aladdin. The ongoing war on light and darkness ultimately results in the final battle that was prophesied before the original curse.

AND THE REST OF IT I CAN'T TELL. SPOILERS! If you want to find out watch it.
