I have literally just caught bang up to date, after giving up on it in season 5 (I gave up on every show I was watching, with the intent of coming back to them all).
What a rollercoaster, and honestly, one of my all time favourite shows. It lost itself half way through season 4, struggled to fully execute 5 and 6 correctly, but season 7 was an utter return to form - I absolutely loved the reboot as it was such a great idea once the leads all decided not to renew their contracts.
The way I see it, is season 7 is the epilogue and the season we might have gotten had it ever returned 10 years after season 6 ended. I just loved this extension to the main story and to have had a chance to fully explore Henry - he was always a supporting character and he absolutely deserved his moment in the spotlight.
Season 7 also felt very much like season 6 of Lost, particularly with the whole ‘waking people up’ thing - which I thought was a nice touch considering the shows history with Lost.
I’ll be honest, I got a tiny bit lost during season 6 as to whether or not the story contracticted itself (over who creates the curse and where it came from - I always thought Rumple created it to find Bae) but I jut went along for the ride.
I’ve missed Emma, Swan and Charming, although Swan did bugger all since season 3 really. I missed seeing hot Prince Charming each episode too, but thankfully Nook (or as I call him, Fook) is basically on par.
But what a marathon - 154 episodes has killed me
