The second season of this epic fantasy series was a lot more jumbled than the first, but still incredibly entertaining. It introduced a bunch of awesome new characters, most notably Captain Hook, and took the show in a new direction that looks like it'll be something special.
It started out with Emma and Snow trapped in a now desolate Enchanted Forest, where they run into Mulan and Princess Aurora. Right off the bat, season two is already wowing me with even more fairy tale characters. But as the season progressed, the same old conflict started to pop up again and again: What is the Evil Queen up to this time? Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed every minute of it. I just wish that if they were going to give Regina some substance, then go for the gold. Don't just have her change her ways for two episodes and then revert on a dime.
The standout of this season is definitely Colin O'Donoghue as the imposing, entertaining, and dashing Captain Hook. The twist they put on his origin story was genius, with Rumplestiltskin being the one who cut off his hand. With Hook now part of the show, viewers can assume Peter Pan and Neverland are on the horizon. Season two is definitely a solid season of a great show that, after its epic finale, will only continue to surprise me.
