After an almost three month hiatus, Once Upon A Time returns with a wicked vengeance. We pick up a year after the last events, in which Regina had sent everyone back to the Enchanted Forest and given Emma and Henry a new life.
If Once Upon a Time was a roller coaster, then “The New Neverland” would be the very top of the hill, right before we are let off the drop. The writers craft the episode as a slow set up for the winter finale. Unfortunately, while the acting is spot on and the writing is exceptional in part of the episode, certain elements leave a disappointed taste in the audience’s mouth.
