OUAT Themes and Meanings – 8. Redemption

Hook-and-Emma-Neverland

The theme of redemption has become a very important one in OUAT, particularly since the start of season 2. We’ve seen our villains (Regina, Rumple, Hook) go to great lengths to change for the better, make great sacrifices, and be the person they truly want to be. Despite someone’s wrongdoings, we must always give someone a chance to change. And it’s also up to others to believe in them, and to help them along. Regina’s search for redemption was inspired by her love for Henry, and Rumple’s was inspired by his love for Baelfire and Belle. It is the love and support of others that makes all the difference.

OUAT Themes and Meanings – 7. First Impressions Aren’t Everything

OUAT has taught us to never judge a book by its cover. A prime example being Belle and Rumplestiltskin. When Belle first went to live with Rumple, she thought of him as nothing but a beast. But she soon learned that there was so much more to him, and as she tells him in “Lacey”, he was not that man she thought he was. We must always try our best to not judge someone too quickly, and it’s always important to get to know them before you make your decision about who they are.

As Once scribe Jane Espenson recently explained to us, “We cast [Emilie] thinking that she’d be great for this but that it would probably be a one-shot — but if she didn’t get a pilot and she had a good time and she’s available, we knew that of course she’d be welcome back!”
