TV Review: Once Upon A Time (Season 7)
Share This Article:
Once Upon A Time finally came to an end this week, after seven years of fantastical fairy tale adventures. The seventh season was a reboot of sorts for the show, with most of the old cast departing and a new setting and new characters taking over. I was a little skeptical about this season, as they really had ended things in a good place in Season 6, and at least through the first half of the season, I was proved right. The second half was much better, but I couldn't help wishing that they had ended things where they were in season 6. Season 7 was confused right from the get go and that didn't really stop throughout the season. It felt like the showrunners didn't have a clear direction of what they wanted to do with the series, and who they wanted to be the villain. At first it seemed to be Victoria Belfry, then Mother Gothel, then Wish Rumple and there was no real coherency to any of them. With previous seasons, the characters would have a goal to accomplish, a villain to defeat by the end, but it's quite confusing when the villain the characters have to take on keeps changing! The show itself has mocked its own complicated storylines, but that doesn't exactly make it any easier for the fans to follow.
