The Last 9 Minutes of Once Upon a Time (BY NO MEANS IS THIS SPOILER FREE. RUN NOW IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED IT.)
One last Snow speech about hope. My reaction: In John Mulaney’s voice “Wait a second, darkened street late at night, no one else around, season finale….we’re about to find a dead body!”
And then…nothing? Alright.
The very Nightmare Before Christmas-esque room of many doors to many lands…does this feel like a series finale to anyone else?
Arendelle, Neverland, Wonderland, Agrabah, the Enchanted Forest…WHERE IS EVERYBODY!?
TINY BOOTS. TINY GREEN BOOTS. A FARM. A DOG. HENRY’S TWO MOMS SAYING GOODBYE AT THE BUS STOP. WHERE HIS GIRLFRIEND IS WAITING. IT’S SO SWEETLY DOMESTIC MY TEETH HURT. IS THIS A SERIES FINALE?!
Mary Margaret back in the classroom where we first met her with her blue bird friend. Beautiful symmetry. FOR A SERIES FINALE THAT THIS IS NOT. EMMA AND HOOK IN HER YELLOW BUG. HE’S A SHERIFF. THEY FIGHT CRIME TOGETHER. HE PUTS THE SWIRLY LIGHT ON TOP OF HER SUPER NOT-INTIMIDATING YELLOW BEATLE. THIS. IS. A SERIES. FINALE. WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE. HAVE THEY LIED TO US?! IS IT OVER?!
THE DWARVES. THE QUEEN. ALL HAIL REGINA MILLS. QUEEN OF ALL THE THINGS.
THE MAYBE-NOT-SO-EVIL QUEEN. THE ARROW. THE RING. A NEW ADVENTURE. PLEASE LET THIS BE A SERIES FINALE. IT CAN’T GET MORE PERFECT.
*BEAUTY AND THE BEAST THEME BEGINS* IT. GOT. MORE. PERFECT.
Dinner at Granny’s. The whole family. David got it wrong all those years ago. This dinner does. Not. Suck. This has to be a series finale. I won’t accept anything else.
Guys, if you were going for subtle with that last shot bearing a rather striking resemblance to The Last Supper then…I hate to tell you…but you missed it by a fucking mile. Perfect series finale shot for a pair of not subtle showrunners.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT’S NOT OVER. WHAT’S HAPPENING. WHAT IS THIS. WHO IS THIS KID. WHAT DO YOU MEAN “YEARS LATER”.
NO. NO. TELL ME THAT’S NOT–
“Hi. Are you Henry Mills?” “Yeah. Who are you?” “I’m Lucy. I’m your daughter.”
“I don’t have a daughter.” “Yeah, you do. Now come on. Your family needs you.”
