By  | 

This week is another double recap as we walk through the major events of New York City Serenade and Witch Hunt, including:

New York City Serenade

In our full recap of New York City Serenade we talk about the many parallels with the Pilot but also with Snow and Regina’s relationship in the Evil Queen, (our Evil Queen recap is podcast episode 48), we address Walsh going ape and we wish for a map of Fairytale Land.

This Week in Emma’s Suitors: Hook looks like a Leather Daddy, Walsh wants to put a ring on it, Regina and Neal are MIA.

This Week in Unanswered Questions: What happened if you died in Storybrooke, are you alive now? Is it like Storybrooke never happened? Is August a boy or a man? Is that why Rumple is alive? Cora? Graham?

Witch Hunt

In our recap of Witch Hunt, we address the Swan Queen moments including Jennifer Morrisson’s new acting choices toward Regina, as well as the consistency in Robin Hood’s character in Quite a Common Fairy and Witch Hunt. There are a suprising number of Sleeping Beauty references. And Also Alex has a theory about Regina that won’t make anyone happy.
