So... DC or the Northwest. Hmm!
I keep watching Once Upon a Time even though it's horrible and for a while I was thinking it was because of the slim chance that it might get better, but it's actually because it's so bad now that it's entertaining to see how bad it will be. Kind of like Frankenfish and other SyFy original movies. That being said, the first 45 minutes of the Heart of Darkness episode were enjoyable, and I really liked the Wonderland episode. The worst parts of the show are without doubt anything with Snow White and Charming in them, not because I don't like them together - I like both characters and they're kind of sweet together - but because it's so predictable that they will kind of get back together and then something arbitrary happens and they're broken up again. This has happened about 12 times so far in the series I think.
But then Sunday night's episode was completely horrible. Previously the Dreamy/Grumpy and Nova episode and the Beauty and the Beast ones were more or less tied for complete stinkers but this one put them to shame.
SPOILER ALERT! So it's finally revealed why Regina hates Snow White so much, why she decided to curse THE ENTIRE WORLD and why she's framing Snow White for murder and repeatedly breaking up her relationship with Charming etc. etc.
When Snow White was TEN YEARS OLD, she was manipulated by Regina's mommy into revealing that Regina was in love with the stable boy.
So... Regina amasses all this power, kills her own father, performs other heinous acts, etc. because she wants to take vengeance against something Snow White did when she was TEN YEARS OLD. And it's not even like it was a malicious thing. Regina's mommy played into Snow White's angst over losing her own mommy and implies that she'll do anything for Regina's happiness and makes Snow White think that she'll totally support Regina marrying the stable boy and they won't have to live life on the run so Snow White tells her.
But apparently this is such an UNFORGIVABLE thing for a TEN YEAR OLD to do that Regina has to spend her entire life plotting her revenge against Snow White.
I mean, yes the mommy then went and killed the stable boy. But this is kind of like plotting revenge against someone because they told your friend there was a sale at Old Navy and they got hit by a car while they were on their way there.
I watch and like a lot of dumb TV (like 90210 and Frankenfish and Harper's Island) and this is the dumbest reveal I have ever seen. This show could be even dumber than Supernatural (which isn't actually that dumb, just not as smart as it pretends to be)!
