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

The show is loosely based on the Vertigo comic "Fables", where classic storybook and fairy tale characters are forced into fleeing to Earth and live in hiding. Two attempts to make a Fables show were scrapped by ABC before they took the same premise and made the cast entirely out of Disney characters and some Brother's Grimm stories. See more »

Goofs

The flashbacks shown in season three, particularly of Prince Charming show him with his current hairstyle not the hairstyle he had in season one/the Enchanted Forest, thus, making him look older/different than he should do at that point in history. See more »

First Six Seasons are Awesome!
7 September 2018 | by pat-08514See all my reviews

I loved the first six seasons of Once Upon a Time, and actually binged all six seasons twice and eagerly awaited the arrival of season 7. There are few shows I can recommend more highly than the first six seasons of Once but seven was beyond disappointing. I couldn't make it through the first episode. Not even Colin O'Donoghue and Robert Carlisle could save it. I hated all the new and revamped characters. They lacked the class, style, fun and imagination of the original cast and the story itself was absolutely lackluster.

If you want to continue enjoying Once Upon a Time, do yourself a favor and rewatch the first six seasons.
