This is our reaction to The Final Battle Parts 1 & 2, with your feedback. In this episode, we talk about how the final chapters of OUAT seasons 1 to 6 were completed. We discuss how OUAT's failure to kill their darlings sometimes hurts the show.

Other topics include:

We compliment the show for making all the characters heroes, but discuss whether it undermined the culmination of Emma Swan's story.

The seemingly sudden decision to compare Emma Swan to Jesus.

Alex follows through on her promise to rant about Gideon becoming a baby.

We discuss ALL the ships, even Swan Fire.

Bri disagrees with Alex about Swan Queen.

We speculate (but not too much) about Season 7.

A big thank you to all of our listeners for their thoughtful feedback and theories!
