Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 16 Review: Mother's Little Helper

The final battle is beginning to take shape.

But Gideon won't be the one fighting Emma to the death.

At least not on his own since Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 16 revealed the Black Fairy controls her grandson's heart.

Somehow, the revelation managed to be both shocking and not at all surprising at the same time. 

I knew right away that Gideon wasn't being honest with Emma when he took her to mansion to access the portal. I thought he would trick her into helping the Black Fairy cross realms.

Instead, the Black Fairy is once again pulling everyone's strings. But now everyone will continue to believe Gideon is evil.

Except for his parents. Rumple and Belle still want to believe the best in their son, which means they may go against everyone else in order to save him.

Will this be what finally heals Rumple and Belle's marriage?

The Magicians Season 2 Episode 3 Review: Divine Elimination

  • TVfanatic
Margo killed Quentin, Alice, and Eliot.

And that was the fun part on The Magicians Season 2 Episode 3 "Divine Elimination."

Credit where credit is due: the show knows how to throw a curveball.

We learned about the Beast's curse on The Magicians Season 2 Episode 2. But the way it played out still managed to be a surprise.

The only thing more fun than watching the royal friends attempt to assassinate one another was watching Penny try to stop them.

Fen: Curses are tricky.

Penny: You don't say.

Fen: They usually end once they've run their course. And not before.

Penny: That doesn't help us. This one seems to want to run its course until they're all dead.

Permalink: That doesn't help us. This one seems to want to run its course until they're all dead. Added: February 06, 2017

He's by far the character with the least patience for the group's often adolescent behavior.

The Magicians Season 2 Episode 2 Review: Hotel Spa Potions

  • TVfanatic
What's worse than a magical, murdering beast?

A magical, murdering beast who sings.

Which is why Julia considered cutting out his tongue on The Magicians Season 2 Episode 2 "Hotel Spa Potions."

It's hard to feel sorry for her when she made the choice to work with him. It's also hard not to laugh at the childlike glee in the Beast's eyes as he sang, and enjoyed his sugary treats.

Except we can't forget he's a monster. No matter how funny it is to hear the bad guy belting out tunes at every turn, we can't lose sight of the fact that he's a killer. 

We can, and should, applaud Charles Mesure for continuing to bring his all to this character. He goes from evil to delightful in the blink of an eye without going over the top. 

And that makes the Beast appear even more dangerous. 

The Beast: You're doomed. Which

‘The Magicians’ Bosses on How Trump Ruined Their ‘Fillory Clinton’ Joke and Inspired Season 2’s Destructive Entity

‘The Magicians’ Bosses on How Trump Ruined Their ‘Fillory Clinton’ Joke and Inspired Season 2’s Destructive Entity
The election of Donald Trump had far-reaching repercussions not only for America and the world, but in the imaginary realm of Fillory as well.

On Syfy’s dark and irreverent series “The Magicians,” a handful of students from the magic college Brakebills have discovered that the world of Fillory, the setting of a popular series of fantasy novels, is real. Fillory is like C.S. Lewis’ Narnia on crack… if crack were made from the blood of innocent baby unicorns.

When Season 1 left off, the gang made a deal: In exchange for a blade that would kill an antagonist known as the Beast, Eliot (Hale Appleman) as the future High King of Fillory married the blade-maker’s daughter. For what was possibly the worst honeymoon ever, they confronted the Beast, who made quick work of everyone including Penny (Arjun Gupta), whose hands are sliced off with magic. Just when all seemed lost,

The Magicians Season 2 Review

Four episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

If fans of Syfy’s The Magicians remember, season 1 doesn’t end particularly well for the tragically unprepared heroes at the center of the show’s clever, meta-filled twist on the fantasy genre. Most of the main cast is either badly injured or straight-up dead, and season 2’s first magic trick is that it resets the story in a very sophomore season of television kind of way without losing a single drop of its abundant creativity and addictive momentum.

In fact, from the four episodes sent for review, it’s clear that showrunners Sera Gamble and John McNamara are gleefully excited about (mostly) ditching the study halls and college antics of Brakebills behind, along with those pesky Harry Potter comparisons, for a season engulfed in the wonderfully weird land of Fillory. The setting change introduces new shadings to the show’s already fascinating characters,
