‘Once Upon a Time’ (Season 6): Never Giving Up

Snow and Charming

Since the pilot episode of Once Upon a Time, it has been made clear that the true love shared between Snow White and her Prince Charming, David, is stronger than anything that can be thrown at the couple.

They have dealt with curses that have kept them apart, battles waged against an unrelenting Evil Queen and other villains, misunderstandings and arguments and, once again, a curse that will keep the lovebirds separated: a sleeping curse that they pass from one to the other with a simple kiss.

It is clear that they love each other unconditionally, but even the best of couples can only cope without their significant other for so long; especially when they can only communicate through handwritten notes and videos shot on their cell phones.

How do you think you would cope if you had to go any length of time without the person you love the most? In their world, Snow and Charming are side-by-side every day, but only one of them can be awake. It only stands to reason that they would start to despair that perhaps this is the one Evil Queen curse that they cannot defeat no matter how determined they are to never give up.

“Never give up” – that has been their motto since the start of their relationship. Obviously following that motto has clearly gotten them through all of their hardships, but it seems to me that this latest obstacle could very well create a chasm between the lovebirds that might never be repaired. Just like Snow and Charming, I want to believe that they can beat this curse, that they will find a way to get back to each other. But this is the world of ‘Once Upon a Time,’ and as all of us who have watched the show since its pilot episode aired back in October of 2011, the Evil Queen will stop at nothing to ruin their happy ending, and this curse just might be what brings it to an end. Not because Snow and Charming don’t love each other, but because this is a seemingly unbreakable curse.

That being said, though, this is also the world of ‘Once Upon a Time’ where anything is possible as long as they believe in each other and believe in their love. Those are the very things that Snow and Charming have in spades, but it will be a matter of how quickly they can find a way out of the curse.

After all there is enough of the sixth season left to play out and it is almost a certainty that the curse will continue to wreak havoc on Snow and Charming for the rest of the season, not giving the show’s remaining fans any kind of conclusion until the very end of the season.

How do you think Snow and Charming will defeat the Evil Queen’s curse? Do you think it will get resolved before the holiday break or not until the May when the show’s finale should air? Please share your thoughts in our comments section below.

The next new episode of the sixth season of ‘Once Upon a Time’ will air in two weeks on ABC next Sunday, November 27 at 8/7c.
