Once Upon A Time: Musical Episode – Review


*Spoiler Alert*

Oh, the feels! My heart burst at this episode and I will admit that I cried a lot because it was just so beautiful! Once Upon A Time is one of my all-time favourite TV shows and Sunday they aired their musical episode which was everything I imagined it would be and more; it was wonderful! I was worried that the musical episode wouldn’t fit in with the whole story, but writers made it fit perfectly and the balance between worlds and musical sequences again worked really well! I’m so impressed with everyone’s singing abilities, and I couldn’t pick a favourite song even if you forced me too and I enjoyed being able to see a variety of characters burst into song but it would have been nice to see Rumple sing a few notes!

The episode kicked off with your typical Dinsey bluebird singing, followed by Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas breaking in song! Both of their voices were incredible and my heart fluttered a bit when Charming strode into the room with his voice soaring! Swoon! If I’m being honest I felt Lana Parrilla’s voice suffered by following up after Goodwin and Dallas but I loved the Evil Queen spin she put on the song and dance routine which redeemed her by vamping it up.  Rebecca Mader’s “Wicked Always Wins” was a total surprise and I loved it, it was something about the lyrics and the performance that got me all excited. Colin O’Donoghue also fared well with his singing voice, and revenge song but I thought his song was too cheerful where it should have been menacing. The final number ‘Happy Beginnings’ see’s Emma and Hook unexpectedly burst into song after their wedding ceremony which was really cheesy but I didn’t care because my emotions were all over the place.

Anyway, I loved this episode and I enjoyed seeing something a bit different that worked well with the plot! I can’t wait for next week’s 2-hour finale episode because we get to see the effect of the Black Fairy’s curse but I don’t think I’m ready emotionally because this might be the end of Once Upon A Time and even if it is renewed for a Season 7 Jennifer Morrison won’t be returning and it wouldn’t be the same without her.

If you haven’t watched Once Upon A Time yet, stop what you’re doing and go and watch the first episode, I can guarantee that it will get you hooked! And if that’s not enough we wrote a list of reasons why you should watch it here! Let me know in the comments what you thought of the episode and I would love to know if there are any other ‘Oncers’ out there!

  1. That’s so cool! Once Upon A Time is a great show! I’m really sad because I never got to finish it; (it’s so long!) I had been binging the series on netflix, but switched over to How I Met Your Mother for a little while (nooo!). I miss the characters, and omg I heard from a friend about how Emma marries Hook! Even though it was only like 4 episodes in, I was so mad when Graham died!! Also, (if this is amy reading this comment right now) how is Caraval? I’ve heard amazing things about it!

    1. You need to watch all of it, it’s just amazing! I will admit at times it gets a bit dull but just push through it and it will get better! I ship Captain Swan so hard, because how can you not love Hook he’s gorgeous! Caraval was amazing, my review is due up soon, and I will even go as far as to say that it’s my favourite read of the year! Thanks for the comment! Xx
