Once Upon A Captain Swan Podcast



We are a group of fans who love the show Once Upon a Time, but more so in particular the love story between Emma Swan and Killian Jones AKA Captain Hook. Every week, we plan to get together to discuss our favorite couple as well as things happening in the fandom, such as conventions and events involving Once Upon a Time.

    For Episode 35, join Sarah, Lindsay, Raechel, and Justine as we tackle the controversial 2-hour season 6 finale. NOTE: We have very strong (and pretty negative) opinions about the finale, so please, if you cannot handle strong criticism, we would advise skipping this episode. While we try to be an overall positive podcast, the sudden announcement of cast departures (including our beloved Emma Swan) leading up this episode put us in a very emotional state and our anger was unleashed by what we found to be a lackluster goodbye to these characters. We considered not releasing this episode, but felt that expressing our disappointments and frustrations might help other fans who might feel the same way. Think of it as OUAT therapy. Also in this episode: -We are thoroughly confused about season 7 -Sarah met JMO in NYC and gives her review of The End of Longing -Sarah and Raechel talk about their experience at the Toronto convention -As always, we give our weekly recommendations: https://ouacspodcast.wordpress.
