The Eighth Witch – ONCE322 - ONCE - Once Upon a Time podcast
Dec 19 17
The Dark Curse, the Coven of the Eight, WickedSisters reunion and Drizella’s Mommy and sisterly issues, Henry vs Lucy, plus, a theory about that confusing reason why the heroes are in the old Enchanted Forest! All these and more as we nitpick this double density podcast of “The Eighth Witch.”
Although they packed so much into the episode in just one hour, “The Eighth Witch” was rather enjoyable. They flash forward a lot and still has more to explain but this was a really, in many ways, epic episode. It was very well done, however, the episode also had some very big plot holes and timeline issues. As the mid-season finale, “The Eighth Witch” this episode kind of wrapped up a storyline which was who cast the curse what the circumstance of casting it but without resolving it just yet. We liked the complexity of the story.
The Dark Curse
While Lady Tremaine may not be enjoyable as a villain having done terrible things this season, she also ended up helping the heroes. But how long is she going to help them? Furthermore, there were also a lot of callbacks in this episode, they threw so much in the beginning we almost wanted them to slow down. There was a big chunk of time missing, what with the birth of Lucy then all of a sudden the heroes were seen in a castle. But why Lucy’s 8th birthday and what does she have anything to do with it? Why does it have to be Lucy’s 8th birthday?
Why keep Drizella as a statue for 8 years? And did they just keep Drizella’s statue in Tiana’s courtyard for 8 years? Why even have Lucy’s 8th birthday with Drizella’s statue around? Was it simply to keep an eye on her? That said, that scene was so well-done and creepy. It was nice because it has been a while to see them do their take on a fairy tale like how it really happened like they did with the Frozen-Snow Queen arc.
It was nice that Regina thought about getting help from Zelena after she woke up from the curse, but how is Zelena in the Enchanted Forest in the flashback? Does this mean Storybrooke still has magic?
It was almost a let down because they went to the poisoned heart magic thing, but at least Henry looked super sick; very effective. In the original Dark Curse, Emma only broke the curse, not bring magic to Storybrooke. It was Rump

In-depth, entertaining, perfect for Oncers!
Daniel, Jeremy, Erin, and all of the other past and present cohosts do an amazing job at deeply exploring the details of Once Upon a Time, uncovering Easter eggs, researching literary backgrounds, and sharing spoilers. I like that they stay spoiler-free during their discussion and save the spoilers for the end of each episode.

My Absolute Favorite Of All Time
This show always has the best reviews! I love the initial reviews because they are definitely off the cuff. But I am most impressed with the longer reviews because the hosts do so much necessary research that makes the show that much more interesting and their opinions that much more valid. I have been listening to the podcast since season 1 and have yet to be disappointed. Thank you for this great podcast and keep up the fantastic work.

I enjoy the thought provoking comments, whimsical attitudes, and random humor of the group that does this podcast. They also notice SO MANY things I would not see! They make me enjoy the show more than I would without listening to it. Thanks!
