** The musical episode, while written to be consistent with the show's internal logic, was almost a last minute addition and as such has zero foreshadowing. Which wouldn't be as noticeable if the song in Emma's heart hadn't provided a definite resolution to six season worth of internal conflict for the character. That the core arc of the protagonist finding out that her family's love was with her all along even though she grew up an orphan, and that she doesn't need to fear separation for it is never final found resolution in a plot device that had zero planting and not even a proper pay off in the actual final battle was a real downer and made an otherwise charming episode feel a bit contrived.

* GottaShipEmAll: The fans ship nearly every character to every other character, and this only grows as more characters are introduced.
** From the time of TheReveal that Elsa from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' appearing at the end of season 3, to the season 4 premiere, she was already getting shipped with roughly a quarter of the regular cast.

* SpoiledByTheCastList: In the episode "[[Recap/OnceUponATimeS1E8DesperateSouls Desperate Souls]]", there is talk of a dark one before Rumpelstiltskin, and Creator/BradDourif is a guest star. It wasn't too hard to guess what his role would turn out to be.

** Shortly after arriving in Neverland in season 3 Rumplestiltskin magically removes his own shadow. It's not surprising that they didn't go through the trouble of digitally removing his shadow in every since shot afterwards. However, a few episodes later they run into a spell which only lets through those without a shadow. Rumplestiltskin can get through, and he explains how the spell works, yet you can clearly see his shadow in multiple shots in that very same scene!

** People were annoyed a lot of the main cast was jettisoned during Season 7; Jerad Jared Gilmore is a appears in the first two episodes, Jennifer appears as Emma one last time (for now) in "A Pirate's Life" and Emilie de Ravin in "Beauty". Strangest enough out of all of the departures, it's Rebecca Mader as Zelena who ends up officially recurring actor and Jennifer Morrison shows up as well.in the season.

** Mr. Gold, until he finally rejects the darkness. Despite repeated chances to redeem himself, he continued to lie, manipulate and betray everyone around him, including his two wives and his son. Throwing Milah, the mother of his child, into the River of Lost Souls to hide his umpteenth betrayal is possibly the worst thing he's ever done.

** Mr. Gold: despite repeated chances to redeem himself, he continues to lie, manipulate and betray everyone around him, including his two wives and his son. Always apologizing after and promising to be a better man but still continuing his evil deeds is exactly what makes him a complete monster. He cements this status with the vilest thing he's done, throwing Milah into the River of Lost Souls.
