My Thoughts on the Latest Episode of “Once Upon a Time”

553950_644645168940905_1183940043_nAfter almost three months of waiting, the Once Upon a Time fandom was finally rewarded with a new episode, titled “New York City Serenade”. I eagerly awaited it, and was certainly not disappointed. I was going to write this last night, but my brain was too excited to say anything coherent. Instead of a a full fledged review, I am just going to write some questions that the episode raised for me.

1. Are Phillip and Aurora being forced to work for the Wicked Witch? Or are they doing it willingly. Their conversation would seem to say the former, as they mentioned that she would take their baby away if they didn’t help her.

2. Where did Hook go after he left the others? And how did he get back to the real world without being cursed? Hopefully we will find out in the following episodes.

3. How did the Wicked Witch get to the Enchanted Forest? When in the timeline did she arrive there? And will we see Dorthy, The Wizard, and other iconic characters?

4. In the preview, there was a bit about the people of Storybrook turning into flying monkeys. Does this mean that all of the people of Storybrook are really flying monkeys, and the real people are still in the Enchanted Forest? And what about Hook?

5. Why did the new curse only erase a year of memories? The other one wiped everything of their lives in the Enchanted Forest, so why hasn’t this one?

6. Why does the Wicked Witch want revenge on Regina? Are they related perhaps? Or possibly old enemies?

7. Finally, when will Henry get his memories back? It was bad enough that he lost them with Emma in the first place, but the fact that he seems like an entirely different kid without them makes us desperate to see him get them back.

Overall, I loved the episode. It was a bit slow, but I don’t think it would have been as good if we had been thrown right in the middle of an action sequence. I think we needed to be “reintroduced” to the story. After three months of waiting, it was good to start it off at an easy pace. I eagerly await next weeks episode, and hope desperately that Rumple is coming back(and for a cheesy sequence where he and Belle run into each others arms).
