Watch The ‘Once Upon A Time’ 100 Episodes Video, Plus The Underworld!
  |  @   |  

Once Upon A Time is smack in the middle of season 5, and when it returns on March 6th, it will have reached its milestone 100th episode. This fairytale adventure is always reinventing itself, scrolling through Disney stories rampant with magic and wonder. When it returns, it will dive into a new realm – Greek mythology, as our Storybrooke residents board Charon’s boat to venture into the Underworld to rescue Hook (Colin O’Donoghue). I fully expect some of the dear departed to make a reappearance, and I’m really hoping Neal (Michael Raymond-James) is one of them. But so far, he has not been on the list.

Check out the 100 episodes mashup video, plus a look at the Underworld below.

Two weeks ago on Once Upon A Time, there was tons of excitement, as Emma (Jennifer Morrison) made Zelena’s (Rebecca Mader) pregnancy speed up so she would go into labor. It’s a girl! The super exciting part for me was David Anders return as Dr. Frankenstein, but I guess Emma stealing Zelena (and not the baby like everyone thought), was exciting too. Turns out Emma wanted to put all the dark magic in Zelena, and then cut her down. Hook, as dastardly as he is, could not participate in that. To return the favor, Zelena showed Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) what Emma really did in Camelot. Hook was dying, so Emma tethered him to Excalibur, making him a dark one. And then there were two. But he hates her for it. The second half was a Merida (Amy Manson) story, where she needed to find a magical helmet before Arthur and Zelena does – one that will make men do her bidding. She finds out Arthur was the one to kill her father, and we get the return of Ruby and Mulan (Meghan Ory and Jamie Chung), her quest buddies.

Last week on Once Upon A Time, we meet the original Dark One, Nimue, true love of Merlin (Elliot Knight). Unfortunately, he created that monster. Having drunk from the Holy Grail, he was infused with power and immortality. He and Nimue fell in love, and he wanted to give it all up for her. She was having none of that, wanting the power to avenge her village. In the end, in present-day Storybrooke, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) is successful at repairing Excalibur. Zelena (Rebecca Mader) pretends to help, but then joins Arthur’s (Liam Garrigan) crazy team. She is able to make the other half of Excalibur a sword that can command Merlin. Uh-oh.
