Will The Snow Queen Return After ‘Once Upon A Time’s Winter Finale? Ingrid Is Too Interesting To Lose
I think Ingrid, the Snow Queen, has to be one of my favorite Once Upon a Time villains. She’s not tainting the memory of a childhood favorite like Peter Pan. She whispers instead of yelling, which is almost always more menacing. She’s not connected to Cora, thank the good fairies above. She brings a philosophy about magic that we haven’t seen yet on a show with so many magical characters, and I appreciate that. It’s also interesting to see a villain who wants something so simple, yet does terrible things in order to achieve it. I wish Elizabeth Mitchell could be on the show forever! Wait, can she? Will the Once Upon A Time winter finale end the Snow Queen? I certainly hope not, but TVLine spoilers about the “embarrassment of witches” coming to OUAT this spring do not bode well. Not cool! There’s still a big missing piece to Ingrid’s story! What went down at the foster home with teenage Emma? Something must have gone wrong, or Ingrid would not have erased all of Emma’s only happy childhood memories. We need those answers before Mitchell takes her final bow.
The Dec. 14 winter finale title, “Heroes and Villains,” doesn’t reveal much, but the episode that precedes it might. “Shattered Sight” will air on Dec. 7 and it may have an obnoxious name, but it could have amazing implications. A spell that makes everyone in Storybrooke see the worst in each other is coming, so finally, we’ll get some conflict out on the table. I have a hunch that even once the spell is over, everyone will have to deal with the truth they’ve just revealed. Serves them right. These fairy tale characters are way too nice, anyway. However, breaking the spell will probably mean either destroying or banishing Elsa and Anna’s not-so-beloved aunt. How could that come about?
