Once Upon a Time is definitely my favorite show, no doubt about it! I love the magic, the storyline, the characters, the costumes.....
Currently, I have just finished season 3. I really hope I can see season 4 before season 5 airs! I definitely love what I have seen so far! The screenwriters never tire of adding unexpected plot twists, love triangles, and crazy family connections! Honestly, who would have thought that Pan was Rumple's father, or that Regina had a sister?
Emma has had such a rough life. She lived as an orphan, gave her baby up for adoption at age 18, spent time in jail, and lost Neal. Nevertheless, she always manages to keep going with her life. In the end of the first season, she saves Henry, her son, from a sleeping curse with the kiss of true love. Once Upon a Time shows how romantic love is not the only form of true love. By waking Henry from the curse, Emma shows that despite all her loss and hardships, she really does have someone she really loves, not a romantic partner, but her son.
Despite her days as an evil queen, Regina still manages to redeem herself. It takes her awhile, but with the help of her son, she finally starts seeing the good in herself. The end of the third season ultimately shows a positive change because she finds that she knows more than just dark magic. She uses light magic to stop the evil that her sister has created. Also, after all she has done to her, she doesn't kill Zelena.
Snow and Charming
I'm putting them together because after all, they do have they do share the same heart :) Snow and Charming always find each other. Their love was so true that they even loved each other during Regina's curse when they didn't know they were actually married. Now, Charming thought he was married to Abigail, so his being with Snow wasn't exactly right, but their love was so strong that it still survived the curse. No matter what the other does, they never give up their support for each other.
They made a great casting choice for Belle. I can't think of anyone who could play her part better than Emilie. I love the clothes she wears!
Now, you have to remember that I still haven't seen season 4, but Hook also redeems himself. His love for Emma causes him to think about the welfare of others and change his pirating ways. He even gives up his ship, which has previously been what he lived for, so that he can get some memory potion to make Emma remember her past. I really don't think he will ever lose his cocky, full-of-himself attitude, but no one is ever going to complain about that :)
I am so excited to see season 4!
I think this is my longest post so far. I guess that shows my love for this show!
