Storyline

For Emma Swan, life has been anything but a happy ending. But when she's reunited with Henry - the son she gave up for adoption ten years ago - on the night of her 28th birthday, everything changes. The now 10-year-old Henry is in desperate need of Emma's help because he believes from reading a book of fairy-tales that she's the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming - who sent her away from the Enchanted Forest to be protected from a curse that was enacted by the Evil Queen. Emma initially refuses to believe a word of Henry's story but soon finds that his hometown of Storybrooke, Maine is more than it seems. Because it's in Storybrooke that all of the classic characters we know are frozen in time with no memories of their former selves - except for the Evil Queen, who is Storybrooke's mayor and Henry's adoptive mother Regina Mills. Now, as the epic "Final Battle" for the future of both worlds approaches, Emma will have to accept her destiny and uncover the mystery behind a place ... Written by ahmetkozan

Trivia

There are many references to the television show Lost (2004). Among them are many of the same actors and actresses, the Apollo candy bars, and the television show "Exposé". However, if you look closely in the first season, you will also see an Oceanic Airliner flying overhead, and the time that Storybrooke gets frozen, is 8:15. The same as Oceanic Flight 815. The address for Regina's house is 108, which is the amount of minutes on the clock in the hatch. Henry Mills' apartment in season 7 is 815. See more »

Goofs

Several times during the series, Mr. Gold is seen wearing a wedding ring. This is because Robert Carlyle has forgotten to remove his own ring; he has even tweeted about it. See more »

i'm in love
21 October 2011 | by golden-silenceSee all my reviews

Such an AWESOME pilot!

I really hope the story lines stay as interesting every week. While I do agree with some of the reviewers here about the fairy tale parts being a bit unbelievable, everything else was perfect. Even the fairy tale parts were acted well. Great cast with believable chemistry.

I've been waiting for a show like this. As kids, we all grow up with these stories, it feels great to see it come to life mingled with reality.

Definitely on my list every week from now. CANT wait for the rest of the season! WOOP!

:)
