There have probably been a lot of this type of post here but since none of my friends have watched the OUAT - I have no one to share my impressions with 😅 I watched all seven seasons in 1.5 weeks (don't judge me) and I have to admit the show is amazing. BUT...
Season seven irritated and confused me terribly. Don't get me wrong, the story is quite interesting and it generally looks good but for me it's not the right way to end OUAT. I have the feeling that they tried to stuff too many threads into 22 episodes and it didn't work very well. In my opinion it would be better to end OUAT in the sixth season or add one bonus longer episode with the future of the main characters or a shorter season where the threads of the most important characters would be well finished. But the whole story from season 7 I think would be perfect for a new series, I don't know, something like "OUAT 2".
However, leaving aside the theme of season seven - don't you get the impression that very little time has been spent on Emma and Hook? Once again, don't get me wrong, but I have the impression that compared to Snow White + Prince Charming and Belle + Rumplestiltskin, they had very few moments together. For three seasons (from the third to the fifth) their story was very dragging and in the sixth season they suddenly started to live together and got married. And even then, we didn't get much scenes from their life together at home (I quickly remember two short scenes...). I just love this ship and I feel we could have received much more than we finally got 😔
Well, that's about it... If anyone has read all of this, I really admire it. Have a good day! ❤
