Other Side of the Mirror # 41 – Love Potion No. 9, Welcome to Storybrooke Recap

By  | 

In honor of the episode Welcome to Storybrooke, this recap features throwback intro music as performed by the Clovers. (Don’t worry, it’s a one-time only engagement….)

We begin by discussing how Welcome to Storybrooke is the bookend to the episode Queen of Hearts, which gave us the first Regina/Cora casket scene, the first documented use of heart-ventriloquism, Charming in yet another coma and a scene with Henry and his mothers at the well.

Other topics include:

It’s 1983 but Regina does NOT have time for shoulder pads!

Alex goes all over the map (and then some) with old TV references – Lassie, Swingtown, the Twilight Zone, the X-Files, What Not to Wear, Siskel & Ebert at the Movies, and the saddest Dukes of Hazard episode ever.

Bri wonders why Graham’s heart retained magical properties when there is no magic in Storybrooke!

A quick reminder that Gold enacted the curse and brought magic to Storybrooke, in order to get vengeance — plus his son back… sound familiar?

We recorded before we got most of the feedback but we appreciate ALL of it and will discuss it during our next fan episode, coming soon…
