Tag: Once Upon a Time (1-10 of 37)
Eat Rip your heart out, Lost, because Once Upon a Time creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis have a new island to play with called Neverland and a new group of survivors to gift with some hefty daddy issues and crazy plot twists. And we saw the result of their tomfoolery in Sunday night’s episode, because, as it turns out, Peter Pan is Rumplestiltskin’s father, and thus, Twue Believuh Henry’s great-grandfather.
Which means… practically everyone is related to Henry now. The Evil Queen is his adoptive mother. Rumplestiltskin is his grandfather (and so is Prince Charming, for that matter). Captain Hook is his biological mother’s possible lover, and his grandfather’s wife’s onetime lover. What are we going to learn next, that Granny’s his sister and Red’s his, er, grand-niece? Is that what they’re called?
But shhh. Just believe, Oncers, believe, and sprinkle on some of that pixie dust, because it’s time to face it: Like the Lost Boys who can never leave Neverland, we can never go back to simpler times. The only thing left to do is to take a look back at how far we’ve traveled — from the Enchanted Forest to Wonderland to that one time we went to Dr. Frankenstein’s black-and-white world — and examine the best, most outrageous twists Once has thrust upon us.
Below, our picks for the top 10 most bonkers moments of the series that would drive even the Mad Hatter madder:

Let’s get the obvious out of the way: Special effects can be awesome. They can transport us to space with a stranded Battlestar or the USS Enterprise, take us everywhere from Metropolis to Middle Earth, make mythical creatures like dragons or sphinxes or three-headed dogs come alive — oh, I could go on forever. I love them, and I love what hardworking VFX teams are able to pull off.
But I’m not in love with unnecessary effects, especially when it comes to TV shows. When the special effects teams for certain shows are already tirelessly working away on a tight schedule (and often a tight budget), there’s no need to squeeze in elaborate shots that require green-screen heavy lifting. Fake backgrounds and awkward-looking scenes just take me out of what I’m watching. (Unless it’s Sharknado, of course.)
Exhibit A: Ringer. (Side note: Does anyone remember Ringer? …Bueller? Bueller?) The Sarah Michelle Gellar-helmed CW drama was axed after airing its first season, but aside from giving us plenty of groan-worthy lines between Gellar’s twin sister characters, it also gave us the following green-screened-to-death scene:

The Once Upon a Time pedi-cabs were all the rage during last year’s Comic-Con. (The cast even enjoyed a ride.) And this year, they’re back — and better than ever.
The new cabs will be seen around San Diego promoting both Once Upon a Time and spin-off Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (both panels are back-to-back Saturday starting at 10:15 a.m. in Ballroom 20), and EW has your exclusive first look.
Yes, that’s a mini-ship with a hook attached and a mushroom with a Hookah-Smoking Caterpillar on top.

Yes, there are a few season finales to go, but with the rush of surprise twists, cliffhangers, and exits behind us, it’s now time for EW.com’s fourth annual reader-voted Season Finale Awards. After taking your suggestions under advisement — and extending the cutoff date to March 31, because so many of you wanted to (dis)honor the passing of The Walking Dead‘s Andrea — here are this year’s nominees. UPDATE: Polls are now closed. Winners will be announced Friday. READ FULL STORY
[Warning: Do not read if you haven't seen tonight's Once Upon a Time finale yet. Do we have a deal?]
May has arrived, spring has (sort of) sprung, and we are officially smack dab in the middle of finale season. We’re also coming up on some of the biggest movie releases of the year. Basically, it’s an exciting time to be an entertainment junkie, folks! So here is what we’ve rounded up for you this week. Whether you’re a Rihanna fan, an avid reader of YA novels, a country music fan, or a Gleek, we’re here to make sure you get the most out of your week … entertainment-wise. The rest is up to you.
Rihanna 777, 8 p.m., Fox
Catch an up-close-and-personal look at life on the road with Rihanna in this documentary about her November 2012 tour, in which she traveled to seven countries for seven concerts in seven days (get it?) to promote her seventh studio album, Unapologetic. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed for a Chris Brown cameo … or maybe we shouldn’t.
Golden by Lady Antebellum hits record stores
Lady Antebellum’s fourth studio album marks their return to the sound that fans fell in love with — think “Need You Now.” From upbeat tracks to emotional ballads, this record is sure to please fans. But if you’re looking for something a little more outside-of-the-box, we hear good things about The Great Gatsby soundtrack, which also drops Tuesday.
Amazon Original Pilots, amazon.com
Check out Amazon’s slew of original pilots, watch them for free, and then vote for which pilot you want to be developed into a series. Voting goes through mid-May so act now! Our recommendation: Alpha House, starring John Goodman as a D.C. senator.
Community, 8 p.m., NBC — OR – Glee, 9 p.m., Fox
So many season finales, so little time. Whether you want to spend your night laughing or tapping your feet is up to you, but when it comes to Glee, regionals always provides a good show. Plus, will Blaine go through with proposing to Kurt?!
The Great Gatsby opens in theaters
Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of the classic novel is finally here, and it promises to be a visual experience that will leave you feeling one of two things: absolutely in awe or absolutely confused. But one thing is certain: With Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Toby Maguire in the lead roles, the party’s attendees are sure to be as pretty as the parties themselves.
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
The next big YA novel is here, and it focuses on a brave young female character and what happens to her when the world is invaded by aliens. Oh, and there’s a love interest. More importantly, Sony has already made a deal to launch what Yancey predicts will be a trilogy to the big screen.
Once Upon a Time, 8 p.m., ABC — OR – Revenge, 9 p.m., ABC — OR – Survivor, 8 p.m., CBS
It is an epic three-way battle of finales, and thanks to our best friend, DVR, we don’t have to choose. But if you do have to choose, we hear that big things are going down in Revenge‘s final hour.

Small towns are so much more interesting on television. Their quirks are quirkier, their drama is more dramatic and their faults somehow make them more endearing. But there’s another feature we’ve spotted in the hit small town dramas we’re currently obsessed with: The cops in these series aren’t all that skilled at, well, being cops.
Case in point: Bates Motel. Sure, the cops of White Pine Bay, Ore. are corrupt, but they also don’t even seem to know how to work a crime scene. The first thing that the Sheriff did upon arriving at a murder scene in this Monday’s episode was touch the murder weapon and then the dead body … with his bare hands. Surely even small town peacekeepers know about latex gloves, right? Assuming they have cable, I’m betting they’ve at least seen Law & Order: SVU and could have learned a thing or two about contaminating a crime scene.
