Last week was the season premiere of Once Upon A Time season 2 and reality and myth began to merge as the fairytale characters awaken from Evil Queen Regina’s broken curse and remembered who they were. Did you watch the premiere? We did and we have a full and detailed recap here for you!

Grumpy, one of the dwarves, comes storming in alongside all the other dwarves. Sneezy is by his side, and his Fairy Tale Character Dementia has returned. He can’t remember his Story Book character.
