Once Upon a Time: Wicked – Season 3 Episode 12-20

The second part of season 3 of Once Upon a Time brought a new villain in to the show for the, now united, citizens of Storybrooke / the Enchanted forest to deal with. Zelena, the Wicked Witch of the West from the Wizard of Oz stories, appears in the Enchanted Forest and has a vendetta against the previous "Big Bads", Rumplestiltskin and the Evil Queen. Of course, with everyone getting along and being related to each other, that puts her at odds with pretty much the entire town. Well, that and the fact that she is basically crazy and evil. Just, FYI, I count the "Wicked" arc as being episodes 12-20, with the season finale (episodes 21-22) being their own standalone story. Recap When everyone returned to the Enchanted Forest they find that the castle has been taken over by a powerful magic user. Regina and Robin Hood infiltrate the castle to find Zelena, a green skinned witch from Oz. Zelena tells Regina that she is her half sister; a daughter that Cora never told her about. It turns out that Cora, had fallen prey to a gardener who used her desire to become royalty to sleep with her after tricking her into believing he was a prince. Eventually, Cora ended up with a real prince but she was already pregnant. This fact was pointed out to the prince by Eva (who is also Snow White's mother) and Cora's engagement to the prince is broken. Knowing that she can never become royalty

Once Upon a Time: Neverland – Season 3 Episode 1-11

At the end of the second season of  Once Upon Time, Henry was kidnapped and taken to Neverland at the request of Peter Pan. Emma led an expedition team to go rescue him. The group, consisting of Emma, Prince Charming (David), Snow White (Mary Margaret), Rumplestiltskin (Mr. Gold), and the Evil Queen (Regina), travel to Neverland aboard Captain Hook's ship with the aid of a magic bean. Absent from the ship is Baelfire (Neal), who was shot and dropped into a magic portal while Henry was being kidnapped. This sets the stage for season 3 of Once Upon a Time. The Neverland story arc composes roughly the first half of season 3. In this arc we learn about Peter Pan and his relation to the characters that we already know. Recap Greg and Tamara (Henry's kidnappers) arrive at Neverland first only to be killed by Pan's shadow. It turns out that they didn't actually know the true nature of their benefactor. The Storybrooke crew does not have that problem as Mr. Gold and Hook are both very familiar with Pan. They land on Neverland and start off after Pan, but Gold decides to go off on his own claiming that he would be better suited to do what needs to be done if left to his own devices. The rest of the group presses on through the jungle and their uneasy alliance with the former villains in the party to try to find Peter Pan and the lost boys. In honor of Henry,

Once Upon A Time Season 2 Finale

ABC's Once Upon a Time aired their season finale last night and did, what I think, may have been the only thing they could to save a show that seemed to flounder in its second season: Hit the reset button. Or at least that's what I hope they did. 213
