After a two-week hiatus, I’m happy that Once Upon a Time is finally back. We’re promised all new episodes through the end of the season, which sadly is only a short three weeks away. The last episode was all about Regina and explained how and why she because the Evil Queen that we all know and love to hate. We finally know about the secret that Snow spilled and the reason why she’s the target of the Queen’s hatred. On the heels of answers, come more questions this week.
Just when you think you know something, your theory gets turned on its ear and new questions arise. I guess that’s no surprise considering just who is behind this show. It is from the same people who racked our brains with Lost after all. This week we’re treated to another episode penned by the great Jane Espenson. Her episodes tend to be very character driven and The Return is no exception. She’s got a great handle on Rumpelstiltskin and that shines through here once again.
