Does Once Upon a Time deserve season 7?

Once upon a time, a city full of fantasy characters, including Snow White and Prince Charming, were dragged into our world by the Evil Queen’s curse and their only hope to ever get back to their world depended on a little boy’s reunion with his mother, the Savior.  This was how Once Upon a Time started. With its storylines primarily focusing on Snow, Charming, Emma, Regina and Gold, the show took us on a magical journey across the Enchanted Forest, Neverland, Oz, and many others, bringing to life many iconic characters including Belle, Hook, Peter Pan, and even characters from the movie Frozen. After finishing the story of the last six seasons in a satisfying season finale, the creators decided to change the show drastically for season 7.


Like all fairy tales, the villans and their agendas drive the story forward and engage the audience as the secrets the villans hold are revealed and the heroes defeat them. Oncers should remember when the heroes traveled to Neverland in season 3 and met a really evil Peter Pan, who was creating a lot of chaos and even traded bodies with Henry. British actor Robbie Kay brought the character to life perfectly and a lot of fan girls swooned for him. Kay used #AskRobbie to chat with fans on Twitter when the episodes aired and it was trending almost every time. Pan was a villan who was so evil and yet lovable at the same time. None of the other villans after Pan were as interesting, even though Emma as the Dark One came close.

One of the most epic things Once Upon a Time has achieved has been transforming the Evil Queen to a hero. Who would ever think that could happen? After six seasons of twist and turns, however, the creators and writers seem to have run out of ideas. There could only be so many crucial characters the heroes are related to and only so many times the town could be cursed or threatened to be cursed. Especially when the writers introduced “The Land of Untold Stories,” it was as if the writers had given up. Why would there be a land called the “Untold Stories?” It would be as if the guys from Supernatural went after a demon called, “Demon Sam and Dean Hasn’t Killed,” or The Flash chasing after a speedster called, “Someone Faster Than Barry.”


The season 6 finale finished the story the pilot was trying to tell. The war was won and the heroes were safe. It was a good ending and even the last scene with the girl finding the older Henry in Seattle and telling him she was his daughter worked as a finale because it showed that Henry’s life ended up mirroring his mom’s, similar to what Gilmore Girl: A Year in the Life did in their finale. Could the finale be the beginning of an even more epic seventh season? Maybe. However, with Emma, Snow White, Prince Charming and Belle not being on the show anymore, it’s hard to imagine the show making the story worth watching, especially since Jared Gilmore, the boy Once Upon a Time fans watched growing up for the last six years, has been replaced by an older version.


Maybe the show should learn from epic shows such as Breaking Bad and Dexter, and end the show when it’s at its strongest, instead of changing the show drastically into something worse. Lab Rats: Elite Force destroyed the legacy both Lab Rats and Mighty Med created by turning both shows about superheroes fighting villans into a superhero soap opera about superheroes doing mundane activities. Fringe drastically changed after a few seasons from a Sci-Fi crime investigation show into a weird parallel universe travel show and completely ruined the fun and lost its fans. Once Upon a Time might ruin their legacy by changing the story into something worse than they had ever done before.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a awesome job with this. In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Internet explorer. Outstanding Blog!
