  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Sarah Alice, the young daughter of Queen Helena's new bodyguard. A common sentiment among fans is "If anything happens to Sarah Alice, we riot!"
  • Evil Is Sexy: Elizabeth Hurley as the Evil Queen is definitely such.
    • Jake Maskall as Cyrus counts too.
  • Funny Moments:
    • Liam's attempt at an American accent, made all the better by Jasper's visible annoyance.
    Liam: *with overexaggerated pronunciation* Mah nayme is Frank J Gallagher, and ah'm, well, ah'm an Amurican! That's whut ah am.
    Jasper: You sound ridiculous.
    Liam: *still with the accent* You're ridiculous! How 'bout them Dawdgers?
    Jasper: Dodgers.
    Liam: *still going with it* Dough-jerrs.
    • Cyrus dressed as Santa Claus (and high out of his mind) staggering into the kitchen and knocking over a Christmas tree:
    Cyrus: Ho, ho - holy shit!
    • From the same episode, Cyrus calling Helena "Muhammad Ali" (in reference to her having a black eye).
      • The beginning of that episode also deserves mention is also worth to be mentioned: Helena wakes up to find the whole palace empty. Logically, she concludes the Zombie Apocalypse has happened while she slept, so she arms herself with an axe. Turns out, Liam just gave the staff the day off.
      • A few moments later, Robert, Eleanor and Cyrus come bursting in the room asking the Queen and Liam if they are still alive. They came to the same conclusion as Helena.
    • Helena banging on Cyrus' door only for him to answer the video intercom:
    Cyrus: "Welcome to McDonald's. May I take your order?"
    • See these "Best Of" videos for seasons one, two and three. Be warned, though, they contain spoilers!
  • Jerkass Woobie: Cyrus. Good grief, Cyrus. Eleanor could also be a contender.
  • Advertisement:
  • Moment of Awesome: Eleanor stepping up to help out a bunch of civilians during the blackout that Robert engineered.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Jasper's father is The Night King.
