#SpookySwen Takes Over the SpookyEmpire Convention

There’s one thing to be said for the SwanQueen fandom, and it’s that when we go all out–we go hard. The Spooky Empire convention last weekend in Florida was a great example of the awesome things that can happen for a fandom even when a show is on hiatus. There’s no doubt that the ending […]

Hopes for Sunday's OuAT 4B Finale: Heroes, Villains, and Happy Endings

Can villains get a happy ending? The season finale of Once Upon a Time is Sunday night at 8/7 CST and will run for two hours. In the second promotional clip, we see Rumplestiltskin having a heart-to-heart with Isaac about Baelfire. I was wondering when we were going to get to discussing Neal, whom is […]


Recap - Once Upon a Time 4x20: "Mother"

There are very few words to explain how Once Upon a Time manages to treat its characters. In the case of Regina Mills, this is all the more obvious. “Mother” was an amazing episode, though it had more than a few instances where I was less than thrilled. That being said, the promo for the […]


Recap - Once Upon a Time 4x20: "Lily"

TW: Sexual assault mention. ———————————————————— This week’s episode of Once Upon a Time was just as interesting as last week’s, with more twists. For all my fellow SwanQueen fans, it was a SwanQueen road trip full of amazing moments. That being said, we got some serious foreshadowing that Lily is really, really somewhere on the […]


Recap - Once Upon a Time 4x18: "Heart of Gold"

Wow. What just happened? I just finished Once Upon a Time 4×18 “Heart of Gold” and I am beyond annoyed. Thus far, season four was off to a great start, which all went down the drain pretty quickly with this awful episode. There’s enough ret-conning here to make even the most plot-hole ridden show seem […]


Recap: Once Upon a Time 4x17 - "Best Laid Plans"

This week’s episode of Once Upon a Time continued the trend thus far in season 4B, which is to be pretty stellar, on the whole. This recap of “Best Laid Plans” will contain full spoilers for the episode, so if you haven’t seen it–get yourself to Hulu and check it out. There were a lot […]


Recap - OuAT 4x16: "Poor, Unfortunate Soul"

This week’s episode of Once Upon a Time continued a shocking trend after the Frozen hype of 4A–which is to say that it was actually enjoyable. I’ve become used to analyzing OuAT for what it does wrong, and the episodes in 4B have so far been really great. That being said, there are more than […]


Recap: Once Upon a Time 4x15 - "Enter the Dragon

This week’s Once Upon a Time episode was again, stellar. I have no complaints. Next week, on the other hand–well, we’ll just have to wait and see. “Enter the Dragon” is very tongue-in-cheek after we see Regina’s interactions with Maleficent throughout this episode. I spent a lot of it wondering if the lesbian subtext could get […]


Recap: Once Upon a Time 4x14 - "Unforgiven"

This recap will contain full spoilers for Once Upon a Time 4×14, “Unforgiven.” If you haven’t seen the episode yet, don’t say I didn’t warn you. We ended 4×13 with Rumple alluding to the fact that Maleficent wasn’t nearly as dead as everyone thought she was after Emma killed her in Season One. Apparently, death […]


Recap - Once Upon a Time 4x13: "Darkness on the Edge of Town"

Once Upon a Time continued its fourth season with an opener that had its fair share of amazing moments. If you’d been thinking that Frozen was a snore-fest for the kids, the Queens of Darkness offer adult viewers a darker storyline that’s got some interesting implications to it. This recap will contain full spoilers for […]


Once Upon a Time: #SaviorQueen's Homophobic Undertones

Everyone’s had a ship that they call a, ‘BroTP’ What that is, is basically a way to say, “These characters are cool/best friends/I like when they interact, but not romantically!” If you’ve never shipped characters, you might consider this to be something that doesn’t warrant attention. The problem with that is that shipping, or participating […]
