`Anyone up to listing what they really loved about the entire series? I am just trying to see the positive.
One thing I loved was coming to this forum and exchanging ideas with other ONCERS…. I will miss this forum .. hope it takes on a new great adventure.

Alright, I’ll play. How about two from every season?
–Emma breaks the Curse by kissing Henry
–Rumple smashes the Dark One’s castle with his cane after Belle’s TLK; while Gold beats Moe in SB.
–Nealfire and Rumple’s three minute conversation in Manhattan (my all time favorite moment in the entire series)
–Neal tells Emma not to let Henry grow up like they did before he and Emma say “ILY” to each other.
–Neal breaks free of Rumple to send a message to Hook to find Emma; a hero until the end.
–Snow and Charming saying goodbye to Emma at the townline before Regina undid her curse.
–All the hilarity of “Shattered Sight”
–Evil Snow and Charming of the “Heroes and Villains” book
–Neal and Emma meet in the bug before the heroes get to the Underworld
–Hades declares to Zelena that the Underworld could be “our decay”
–Emma’s song in the musical episode
–Snow and Charming’s song in the musical episode
SEASON SEVEN (so far, might change after the series finale)
–Rumple throwing the dagger to the ground after Belle tells him she wants to build a home without magic
–Henry’s essay to Regina as he gets ready to leave home.

“We are both” is good advice. Each of us is much too complex to be perfectly self-consistent.

For me, Emma is the best thing about this show. Real Emma from the first few seasons. The Emma that was an abused child that was really angry at her parents who abandoned her. The Emma that was learning what it meant to be a mom and a friend and to be part of a community. The Emma that was an abused child who was neglected and used as a child. The Emma who was left by Henry’s father and didn’t know how to trust a partner because of that. The Emma who wanted home and found and lost that with Neal, then found it again with Henry and Snow. The early Emma that was complicated and flawed and real and had a painful backstory was the best thing about this show.
That was all very quickly lost and was all but gone by the end of Season 2 and certainly by the end of 3. They completely rewrote that character in a lot of ways. She was no longer trying to make things right with her parents that was all “resolved” even though it was barely discussd. She was no longer trying to be Henry’s mother. She was no longer standing up for what was right, but instead was just doing what was good for herself. There would be brief nice scenes now and then with Emma and her parents or with Henry or with Neal, but it never held true to what they showed us in the first season and a half or so.
Still, the early concept of Emma was what was good about this show and the person that everything about the show swung around. Her scenes with all the mains were great. With Snow, with Charming, with Henry, with Regina, with Rumpel, and with Neal were the soul of the show and when they started pulling those things out of the show, the show died.May 18, 2018 at 2:29 pm #347412WickedRegalParticipant
This is our last hurrah!
May have more than two though…
The Backstory & Classic Tale of Snow White & the Evil Queen
Regina learning from her mother’s mistake and willingly letting Henry go.
Cora & Regina…
Regina’s backstory with Baby Henry and then saving Henry!
Regina ultimately blessing Henry and Emma with new memories of a better life while she’s gives him up to undo the very curse that she cast. This I believe was the first real milestone in her redemption arc….
The Outlaw Queen & Wicked Sisters Reveal/Storyline
Regina breaking the curse by kissing Henry….yeah, the tears were strong!
Henry willingly comes home to his mother will always be one of the most touching scenes for me!
Definitely the Shattered Sight Episode…Ingrid’s death still remains one of the saddest to me!
Cruella De Vil!!! We all had so much doubt about her, I think Matthew was the only one who said she may shock us and end up being our favorite, and he was spot on right!
Neal & Emma’s reunion…
Regina getting closure with both of her parents and seeing them through to “Heaven”…and Cora reuniting her daughters….that episode and Henry Sr. Episode moved me so much!!!
Hands down…Regina learning to accept and love herself for who she is, the good, the bad, and the magical….
“And now I love myself…” best moment of the entire season 6 for me!
Henry & Regina’s flashback scenes and his letter, and their reunion/breaking curse….yeah…hardest I ever cried watching this series so far!

So did I . I will have to think long and hard on this one.May 18, 2018 at 11:35 pm #347466StahlopParticipant
Snow and Charming’s falling in love story. They were so cute!
Emma breaking the curse.
Finding out Bae and Neal were the same person.
Cora trying to steal Emma’s heart and it not working.
Emma and Hook’s kiss!
Regina breaking the curse.
Emma asking Hook out on a date (I can, and have, watched that scene over and over).
Evil Snow and Charming. Some of Ginnifer Goodwin’s best acting.
I know I’m in the minority, but I loved the whole Dark Swan and Dark Hook storyline. I still cry at Hook’s death.
James and Cruella in Hades was fun.
Hook’s second proposal to Emma.
The wedding/musical episode.
The whole episode of Beauty, and I’m not a Rumbelle shipper at all.
Regina reading Henry’s letter.May 18, 2018 at 11:35 pm #347467TheWatcherParticipant
The greatest thing about OUAT for me will always be their treatment of the villains. Giving them backstories and personality and showing that evil isn’t born, it’s made.
I loved the ups and downs this show had when it comes to showing how it isn’t always easy trying to do the right thing and that sometimes even bad people had good intentions or vice versa.
OUATS biggest plus for me is it’s characters, flaws aside.

I really wish I had time to re-watch season one again for this but for now here are a few of my favorite Once moments from memory in roughly chronological episode/time order (warning high ‘Skin Deep’ content).
Rumple’s kills Zoso and transforms into The Dark One as Zoso laughs, “I know how to recognize a desperate soul’ (which is later echoed by Rumple to Emma).
Rumple makes a deal for Belle, ‘congratulations on winning your little war!’.
Rumple’s quips/The chipped cup!
Belle falls into Rumple’s arms while trying to pull down the drapes.
Belle holding the rose that was Gaston and then she cuts off his feet (lower stem).
Rumple destroying things in the dark castle after hearing about Belle’s ‘death’ from that evil witch, Regina.
Emma arrests Mr. Gold.
Regina confronts a jailed Gold and makes him tell her his name…Rumplestiltskin!
Rumple comes to David on his farm and tells him about his twin brother. I just love that scene.
The twist reveal that Ruby/Red IS the werewolf stalking her village.
Cora’s death from Snow’s whispering ‘Cora‘ over the candle to Rumple’s sudden return to health return to heath (including the sweet phone call to amnesiac Belle) with that slightly open shirt as he stands over Cora like a boss.
The camera pan that reveals Malcolm becoming Peter Pan.
Rumple overcoming his fears to kill his father (and himself) to save the town.
The Rumbelle wedding vows!
Belle: Rumplestiltskin, this thing we have, it’s never been easy. I’ve – I’ve lost you so many times. I’ve lost you to darkness. To weakness and… And finally, to death. But now I realize – I realize that I have not spent my life losing you. I’ve spent my life finding you.
Mr. Gold: Belle, when we met I wasn’t just unloved and unloving. I was an enemy of love. Love had only brought me pain. My walls were up. But you broke them down. You brought me home. You brought light into my life and chased away all the darkness. And I vow to you I will never forget the distance from who I was (places a ring on Belle’s finger) … and what I am. I owe more to you than I can ever say. How you can see the man behind the monster, I will never know.
Belle: But the monster is gone. And the man beneath him may be flawed, but we all are. And I love you for it. Sometimes the best book has the dustiest jacket. And sometimes the best tea cup is chipped.
