'Once Upon A Time' Season Finale: Is The Curse Broken?

Sun, May 13, 2012 9:37pm EDT by 25 Comments

Emma finally believes — but she’s got bigger problems now! What did you think of the epic ‘Once Upon A Time’ finale?

Henry (Jared Gilmore) being rushed to the hospital on the May 13 season finale of Once Upon A Time was just the thing Emma (Jennifer Morrison) needed to finally believe his story! But because Regina (Lana Parrilla) baked the last of her magic into the apple turnover meant to put Emma to sleep, there was only one person in town she and Emma could turn to: Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle).

Fortunately for everyone in Storybrooke, Mr. Gold was smart enough to save the only thing strong enough to break any curse: true love. Rumplestiltskin had bottled the love potion using strands of hair from Snow White’s (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas), and stored it inside a beast only Emma could kill with her father’s sword. Unsurprisingly, Maleficient (Kristin Bauer Van Straten) was the beast that held the potion, and Emma battled the dragon to its death, securing the true love potion.

(The people of Storybrooke, and even those of the fairytale world, should seriously never underestimate The Savior when she’s wearing her red jacket!)

Jefferson (Sebastian Stan) released Belle (Emilie de Ravin) from the basement of the hospital where she’d been held by Regina, ordering her to find Mr. Gold and tell him Regina locked her up. Meanwhile, in the fairytale world, Charming awakened Snow with true love’s kiss, and they planned to take back the kingdom together.

Emma returned to the elevator that lowered her into the dragon’s layer, but instead of Regina waiting for her at the top, it was Mr. Gold! He urged Emma to toss him the potion because Henry didn’t have much time, which she did, but then she found Regina tied to a chair with tape over her mouth! Mr. Gold had — surprise, surprise — manipulated everything to have the potion for himself!

That’s when Henry flatlined at the hospital, and my heart — along with Emma’s, Regina’s and Mary Margaret’s — broke into a thousand pieces. But after all the tears, Emma woke Henry up and broke the curse with a kiss. (True love’s kiss! Duh!)

Snow and Charming were finally reunited, and along with every other citizen of Storybrooke, Belle remembered Rumplestiltskin. She followed Mr. Gold into the forest, where he dropped the potion into the well “said to return what has been lost,” and that triggered a rush of purple wind into the town of Storybrooke. Even though the curse is broken, magic — along with power — will be coming back.

Once Upon A Time will return for its second season in the fall, and I cannot wait to see how magic will turn everything around!

Will Regina gain back her power? Will the residents of Storybrooke fight back against the Evil Queen? Will Rumplestiltskin make Regina pay for what she’s done? Drop your best theories in the comments section below!

They may defeat the evil queen, but I think that rumplestiltskin will be the bigger problem.

i think regina is going to go into hiding and form some plan still not giving up on ruinging snows life and I think Emma and Henry are going to try to brake the curse now that everyone is “awake.” I really hope there are some cool/akward moments between Emma and Snow since now she knows shes here mom

Regina will gain her powers once more and epic fight between two titans will begin. I however think they will bring in a more powerful character. I want to see someone pure evil because Regina has a weakness and thats Henry and if somehow the Hunterman comes back him too and Rumplestiltskin has Belle and his son who i know will make an appearacance in season two. I want someone who is right down evil with no weaknesses to judge his actions!

Was totally surprised at how great the finale was, especially considering how timid the show has been at moving the narrative forward for the better part of this season. Thank goodness Emma finally stepped up and I’m so glad that the curse is broken and we don’t have to watch her wake people up one by one.

Our forecast on what the show will do for season two is here: http://wp.me/p1VQBq-Vo

I knew even before the season finale that it should have been two hours instead of one. I can only hope that the next finale will be longer. Early in the finale, I kept wondering…once Emma realized that Henry was right, WHY she didn’t just KISS Henry already! Why run around looking for some other magic, when Emma had within herself something magic….because she was the product of the very True Love that existed back in FTL! I just wanted to drag Emma over to Henry and say KISS HIM ALREADY! Oh well, apparently even Regina didn’t realize that Emma had such magical powers! Now StoreyBrooke has two powerful beings that will use magic for evil purposes. And to do battle with them, will Emma have to do battle alone…or do her parents possess some kind of magic themselves now that they are once again united as Prince Charming and Snow White? Does Henry? And why didn’t the show ever reveal WHY David was under some kind of curse that made him a wimpy, lying, disgusting idiot? Really…did Regina somehow keep some other kind of magic that she then used on David in StoreyBrooke? I had become so disappointed in him I just wanted David to go away!

Everyone in storybrooke was altered in some way from how they were in FTL. Thus David was the oposite of what he was in FTL. Thats why he was such a wimp!

Technically she needed that magic still anyways to break the curse. once the curse was broken then she could kiss Henry.

Oh well, apparently even Regina didn’t realize that Emma had such magical powers! Now StoreyBrooke has two powerful beings that will use magic for evil purposes

Emma won’t use it for evil but only to use it to stop evil. technically her only powers were to be able to lift the curse that is it.

And to do battle with them, will Emma have to do battle alone…or do her parents possess some kind of magic themselves now that they are once again united as Prince Charming and Snow White? Does Henry?

If you have actaully ever watched the disney movies you would know they do not have magic. If they had actual magic they would of used it agiasnt the evil queen in the fist place instead of making deadly deals.

AND FINALLY

And why didn’t the show ever reveal WHY David was under some kind of curse that made him a wimpy, lying, disgusting idiot? Really…did Regina somehow keep some other kind of magic that she then used on David in StoreyBrooke? I had become so disappointed in him I just wanted David to go away!

David was never under a curse of being wimpy or disgusting or lying. He was in a coma he didnt know WTF was going on. Even before the curse he was always a tad bit timid. he was only a twin brother of the real prince not the real prince himself. he didnt want to fight or anything. and regina when she placed the curse she knew all magic would not be there. you would know tat as well if you payed more attention. the only magic she had was in her engagement ring and she gave that to the madd hatter so she could get the poison apple.

OMG. What a finale! I am so looking forward to Season 2. We know Regina and Gold will be at each other’s throats. But what else happens? Do Henry and Emma have any magic powers? Does the Mad Hatter get revenge against Regina? What about others that Regina betrayed? And is there any way we can get the hunky huntsman back?

My entire life I suffered one setback after another, I could never get ahead and my relationships never lasted more than a few weeks. I was told by every psychic, tarot reader and spell caster that I went to for answers that I was cursed and there was nothing that could be done about it. I would never have any luck and would always bee cursed. I paid three casters 7000 dollars of my money to try to remove the curse and nothing lifted. each spell caster claimed to do the work, but nothing got better and when I would complain they would tell me I needed more work done. Last year in September (2013) I was on the internet and just by accident stumbled upon this The email Lordazeez1990@hotmail. com. I spend hours reading his articles and researching him. Finally worked my nerve up to contact him and had a reading. Lord. Azeez is the only practitioner that I have used who has helped me find relief for my problems. He removed the curse, gave me some protection and did some luck work for me, which cost me way less than what I paid to those other 3 spell caster. Finally, for the first time in my life, I am in a stable relationship in which we have been going on for months —- years—- and I have a job that I can progress. Thank you Lord. Azeez , You are the real deal. The email again is lordazeez1990@hotmail. com
