The day when … Once Upon A Time again chose the ease!
You, too, have been terribly disappointed by the final episode of Once Upon A Time? Do you feel that the show always chooses the ease of daring? Great!
Hello everyone! On this sunny Sunday, I wanted to thank you for being more and more to follow me and to give me your opinions in the comments. Sharing my love of the series with you has become a real addiction. And this week I decided to go back on the Season Finale of Once Upon A Time and on the bases thrown for a seventh season quite different from the previous ones. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that despite my affection for ABC’s most magical show , I am often disappointed by the lack of audacity of the screenwriters . If I was very sad about the departure of Jennifer Morrison , I was nevertheless very excited about the promises made by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz who had sold a kind of reboot to the leaders of the American network. For my part, I think it’s been a long time since Emma’s storyline was running out of steam, and the screenwriters were not able to spark the interest they had so brilliantly found in the first few seasons. So obviously, when the announcement of a new structure was official, I was quite excited trying to convince all my friends to keep watching the series even after the departure of the majority of the main actors.

My level of impatience reached its peak on Monday morning when I began to watch the Season Finale of the sixth season which also served as a conclusion to the story that Emma has been heroin for years. And honestly, I spent a moment that I would have gone well. I am used to being transparent with you and I will not change my course of action here even though I know my opinion may not be unanimous. Looking at “The Final Battle” , I felt I was watching an episode I had seen a hundred times. Nothing seemed surprising or powerful to me in an episode that had yet to close a story for which we were passionate . The fact is that the storyboard of amnesia was so used in the show that it no longer touches me at all. For, at bottom, we knew from the very moment that Henry awoke that he would succeed in restoring the faith that Emma lacked so much.
In the same way, it was clear that Fiona was not trustworthy and that she had locked Belle somewhere. No surprise then on the cold revenge of Rumple who killed his mother without the slightest scruple. But a terrible disappointment even when we know we were sold a spectacular battle for the last episode for weeks. Certainly, I can understand this desire to close the loop and put Henry back at the center of the action. But was it really a simple resolution? Emma sacrifices herself and just a kiss from Henry to wake her up? The same for Snow and Charming? Yes, it is a bit the trademark of tales but after six seasons, Expect something a little more worked? This episode lacked so much rhythm that it was almost impossible not to get bored. In forty minutes, there might have been a semblance of acceleration which only offered us a slowdown in 1h20. I’m hard but I was expecting a lot from this Season Finale, which was a fan of the first hour.
But in spite of my disappointments, I admit to have waited the last minutes with a passion always as powerful. I was so anxious to see how the show would be teased. And I fell again from a thousand stories! The rumors that an adult Henry would be the hero of reboot and that he would have lost himself in another universe I liked very much. What a disappointment then to see that the creators of the series had contented themselves with offering us the same scene as that of the pilot but with an amnesic Henry. Really? Again? I can not understand the purpose of the screenwriters. They have nevertheless fought hard to get the seventh season that no one believed at the sight of the hearings. So why revive in a story that, obviously, Does not give them any more inspiration? On the other hand, I am told that Hook, Regina and Rumple will have other identities and that they will have to find Henry, which means that they have indeed created a new plot. But personally, I find that nothing has changed.
They are still and always characters who are in different universes and who have to fight to find themselves. It is always someone amnesia who must fight to “believe” in fairy tales. In short, we turn in circles and above all we choose the facility rather than do in the audacity. After that, I can always be wrong and maybe I will come back to do my mea culpa in a few months when the seventh season has been broadcast but for the moment I remain very skeptical. Especially since I had difficulty to understand why Hook is still part of the adventure because it must be admitted that his character lived almost exclusively through his relation with Emma. Let’s just hope that Rumple will no longer be the villain of history! All this is painful to me given the crazy potential of the series but Once Upon A Time is unfortunately taking a delicate turn . However, it is with hope that we may be able to regain the extraordinary of the beginnings. We believe in !
That’s all for me, meltynauts. I’ll meet you again on June 4th for a brand new chronicle. And you know what ? It will be a year that I share my memories with you! Until then, take care of yourself. <3 What do you think of the final episode of Once Upon A Time and the introduction of Season 7?
