Land Of Untold Stories

Near the finish of the fifth season of Once Upon a Time, I’ll admit I was wondering exactly how the heck the present might maybe proceed on. After over 100 episodes of the fairy tale-based drama series, I was *positive* that the writers had actually run out of stories that might be reimagined for the display. I’ve seen ~a lot~ of Disney movies, and also I think we’ve viewed literally eincredibly single one redeveloped in one way or one more on OUAT in the previous few years.

But in a super cool twist, the authors threw a total curve round at us, introducing an totally new realm from which they can draw brand new stories. That’s the Land of Untold Stories, which was discovered as soon as Henry found a nearly-similar storybook to the one around the Enchanted Forest inhabitants – other than the new book was all around characters we’d never before watched prior to.

The Land also of Untold Stories – from what we glimpsed as soon as Snow, Charming, and also Hook acquired stuck tright here throughout last year’s finale – appears to be an interconnected mix of people tale, classical literary, and also other “miscellaneous” characters that, for one factor or an additional, were propelled from their “rightful” lands to seek refuge in this various other realm.

On tonight’s episode of Once Upon a Time we ended up being acquainted through one previous resident of the Land of Untold Stories. It was the Count of Monte Cristo – and also he had some serious unfiniburned organization through our heroes.

The new character, who was played by the ~very~ swoon-worthy Craig Horner, unfortunately had actually a super short shelf-life on the present. In a series of flashbacks, we learned that the revenge-obsessed Count had actually the misfortune of crossing courses via a pre-redeveloped Evil Queen Regina earlier in the Enchanted Forest. The Evil Queen recruited the Count, quickly after he dispatched of among his very own adversaries in spectacularly dramatic fashion, to assassinate Snow White and also Prince Charming for her.

But the Count (going by the name Edmond to infiltprice the Charmings’ castle) couldn’t manage to poikid them, as the Evil Queen had instructed him – his conscience and also his mild instance of the hots for Snow’s handmaiden Charlotte got in the way. After Charlotte was poisoned by Rumple in an effort to obtain the 2 out of the Enchanted Foremainder, they escaped to the Land of Untold Stories – just to get pulled out once Hyde lugged every one of those personalities over through him in the fifth seaboy finale.

In contemporary Storybrooke, Charlotte succumbed to the poison (farewell Charlotte, we hardly knew ye) and also the Count had actually his heart ripped out by the Evil Queen, who used it to pressure him to proceed on his mission to kill Snow and Charming.

Regina, being a complete badass, sword-wielding, uber-fashionable hero queen nowadays, managed to soptimal the sword-wielding Count before he might damage her friends.

It was super, super sad – both for the Count, who entirely could have been recreated to be a good male yet wound up losing his love and his very own life instead, and for Regina, who is obvs no longer a fan of killing civilization. Even worse, it turned out that the Evil Queen’s villainous setup all alengthy was to gain Regina to kill the Count, to unlock her remaining darkness and turn her evil aget. Oh no!

The entirety event likewise made Emma question whether Regina herself can be the mysterious hooded number from her vision that is set to kill Emma in a battle. Fingers crossed that’s not the instance.

We met our first new Land of Untold Stories resident on "Once Upon a Time," and also his story was SUPER tragic
