Two apps that are never going on my phone: Snapchat and Instagram. Not just "no" but "HELL no."

Once Upon a Time Reactions Part 9

And here are my reactions for the rest of season 5 and season 6. Spoilers.

--

Season 5 Ending:

I was getting worried the Underworld Arc was turning into another Peter Pan, in terms of having Rumple sit around and do nothing. Glad they thought of something. And HOW.

(Loving the irony there.)

Frozen was a huge hit and became part of OUaT Season 4. Zootopia was a huge hit. OUaT season 6?

--

Season 6:

The OUAT writers really REALLY hate Belle-Rumple shippers. In the season premiere, they give us an insanely touching scene between the two - complete with Beauty and the Beast theme! - and then just tear it all apart. And meanwhile all the other relationships still around are royally lame. Yeesh.

Frankenstein, Jekyll, and DOC working together on a mad science project? One of the high points of the series.

I'm glad Jekyll and Hyde didn't overstay their visit.

I hope they're going somewhere with evil Regina.

They REALLY hate Belle-Rumple shippers. Graaaah.

Okay. Nice setup to the second half. I like the twist about the son.

And once again the show can't seem to properly demonstrate a character's power without everyone talking about it rather than through actual feats.

Rumple was the Savior?! That is a good twist. It also explains a lot.

The build up to this final battle is kind of meh.

AND ANOTHER CURSE WITH AMNESIA... (It's a drinking game.)

I do like how it's the Nothing from Neverending Story threatening to destroy them all. I hope that was on purpose.

Rumple does something! Go you! Kudos to him for doing to his mom in this arc what he should have done to his dad in season 3. (At least they made that up in season 5.)

The scene with sort of evil Regina facing down the Nothing was pretty awesome.

And it's over!

Yay! Belle and Rumple live happily ever after! About damn time.

So what does season 7 have...OH COME ON, MORE AMNESIA?

In Chinese and Japanese, four is a homonym for death. I'm surprised there aren't more Death Note jokes out there for the Note 4.

Halloween Testing

I once gave a quiz with 13 questions in honor of the holiday.

The bonus was about famous horror movie franchises. I was disappointed no one knew who Michael Myers was or what series he was in (Halloween).

In the live action adaptation, Kamina is played by Psy.

They're calling it "Gangnam Lagann."

What I love is that while there are plenty of people named "John Baird," our fundamental POV of the world is often very similar.

What was the person's reaction when they got the tropical disease?

They were ebola-ient.
