Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 6 Review: Wake Up Call

Poor Regina. 

On Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 6, Roni found all of her memories as Regina rushing back after Drizella thought it would be a good idea to have her cause some drama. 

What's That Coming Over the Hill? - Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 6

Watching Regina's coaching used against her by Drizella was fascinating. Regina thought she was doing some good in helping the youngster come to terms with the fact that she can be as powerful as she wants to be. 

While it was surprising that Drizella was born with magic, it made sense that she was the one to set the curse. All season long it has looked like Lady Tremaine was the one playing the other angle. 

It's excellent when shows manage to pull the rug from under you, and Adelaide Kane is brilliant as this much younger villain. I get why Drizella turned her heart black because it meant that she would be able to get the upper hand on her mother. 

Regina is Fierce - Once Upon a Time

Lady Tremaine is as wicked as they come, and I cannot wait to see how Drizella gets her ultimate revenge. Somehow, I don't see her stopping at the curse with her mother. 

Lady Tremaine deserves to find herself in trouble because of the way she treated everyone before the curse, but Drizella giving Regina her memories back was a calculated move and one that Drizella will come to regret. 

Was anyone else yearning for Regina to open a can of whoop ass? And, to think, Regina trusted Drizella to save her from a castle falling on her. 

We already know that Zelena is returning during Once Upon a Time Season 7, so look for her to be the one to help Regina find a way to do something about Drizella. 

I never thought anything was going to come from the search to see if Regina adopted Henry. It was poised to be brushed under the rug without a second thought. 

It's Drizella! - Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 6

Regina turning to Weaver helped prove that there was a lot of the Rumple character breaking through the person. We got a hint of that a few episodes back, but the whole part with him asking Regina to pay him back was a typical move from Gold. 

Rumple explaining the truth about Belle's demise to Regina in the other realm was really sad.

He was determined to change his life up for the better, and I can't be the only one who thought him speaking about passing on The Dark One meant he was giving the role to Drizella. 

A Wild Rumple Appears - Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 6

Wouldn't that be hilarious? Drizella already has too much power as it is. She's mostly pulling all the strings, and she knows she's invincible. Regina is probably wishing she never mentioned heroes always winning in the end. 

It was that whole speech that pushed Drizella to remove the hero factor from it in the first place. The good thing about Drizella as a villain is that she's covering all her bases. 

Now, with Regina being tasked with keeping Henry and Jacinda apart, she knows her plan will continue to flourish. She's apparently holding some card closer to her heart. 

I don't believe that Drizella has just the hidden witch as her accomplice. There must be someone else in on all of it with her. Whenever the curse is broken, Lady Tremaine is going to be fifty shades of crazy with her daughter. 

The Truth - Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 6

Was I the only one who hated everything to do with Henry and Jacinda? This love story is tired and it's only been a few weeks. I rolled my eyes when I learned that Jacinda took the huff with Henry for hanging around with Ivy. 

There's no chemistry here whatsoever between the two characters, and it would have probably served the narrative better if Henry did start dating Ivy. Regina would be mad, and Jacinda would probably try to find a way to throw a spanner in the works for them. 

I don't doubt that Jacinda has a thing for Henry, but it's almost like she's trying to push him away because she knows it's going to put her on the outs with Victoria if she follows a romance. 

I'm also getting tired of Lucy talking about the curse. It's time to give the kid something else to do that does not involve her shouting to anyone that will listen about the curse. 

A Partnership? - Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 6

It was about time Rogers turned to Tilly for some help. Something tells me Tilly's message about the pieces he already has is going to ring true. She's been sketchy since she first debuted, so there's a possibility that she is Eloise. 

But, if she is, is the curse making her deny it or goes she just love people trying to figure her out?

"Wake Up Call" was an excellent episode of this ABC drama series. The storyline is not moving along at a brisk pace, and it's becoming clear that the reboot was worth it. 

What do you think of the latest developments? Sound off below.

Once Upon a Time Season 7 Episode 6 Quotes

Henry: Hey, well you will be happy to know, that things with Jacinda went pretty well.
Regina: Guess we'll just have to see where that goes, won't we?

Regina: You know, uh, I was thinking maybe it would help if she knew a little more about you. You know, like, who your mother is.
Henry: I haven't told her this because I did not want to add fuel to the fire, but I was born in prison, just like my character. Except I was never adopted, I grew up in the system.
Regina: Like Emma did.
