Once Upon a Time (season 2)

{4.5/5} “You ever wonder if this constant pursuit for revenge is the reason we’ve no one who cares for us?”

Magic is brought to Storybrooke — and everyone remembers their past as characters from the enchanted forest. But people still can’t leave town — if they do, they’ll lose their memory. Then the one person who’s capable of throwing Regina off her game comes to town — her mother. Emma finds herself meeting a giant at the top of a beanstalk. Neal, Emma’s ex-boyfriend, turns up — he’s related to someone in Storybrooke. And a couple of people come to Storybrooke because it’s their quest to destroy all magic in the world.

Once Upon a Time season 2 just finished.

Season 2 contains more fairy tales (along with some more modern stories) and more plot twists. It’s still a great show but it wasn’t quite as gripping as season 1. The difference felt like the difference between planning it out ahead of time and making it up as they went along.

Once again in the finale a new situation is put in place for next season — anything could happen.
