Top 5 Moments From Once Upon A Time's "Welcome to Storybrooke"
Magic always comes with a price. It seems the citizens of Storybrooke have forgotten this all-important lesson. One of the town’s youngest members may be the one to school them! Check out the Top 5 Moments from Once Upon A Time’s “Welcome to Storybrooke”.
Storybrooke’s First Days
The show opened with an unknown father and son camping in the woods. Suddenly, the weather spiraled out of control, and they were forced to take shelter in their tent. A huge cloud of green and purple smoke surrounded them, which could only mean a magical curse. It turned out, the father and son duo were caught in the curse from Season One, and wandered into Storybrooke.
As Sheriff Graham (Jamie Dornan) welcomed the pair into town, Regina (Lana Parrilla) celebrated the success of her curse. The Evil Queen walked through town, amazed by the sights before her. She made sure the curse was in perfect working order by bringing Mary Margaret (Ginnifer Goodwin) to visit a coma ridden David (Josh Dallas) to see if she recognized him. When she didn’t, Regina smiled from ear to ear.
She visited Granny’s for a meal and flirted with Sheriff Graham (Mercy, I’ve missed that beautiful man). While eating she ran into the mysterious father and son. Regina immediately felt threatened by their presence. She didn’t want anyone or thing getting in the way of her precious curse. However, after the young boy gave Regina a keychain as a gift, her attitude changed. She even invited the father and son, Kurt (John Pyper-Ferguson) and Owen Flynn (Steve Makaj), over for dinner at her house. She bonded with the boy and asked them stay in town. When they refused, Regina’s evil ways came back into play.
She grabbed Graham’s heart from her vault, and spoke to it. She gave him orders to stop the father and son from leaving Storybrooke. Apparently, if someone speaks directly to the heart, it controls the person. I find that very interesting. Anyways, when Regina turned around after having words with the heart, Kurt was standing before her. He heard the whole thing, and didn’t want any trouble. He tried to leave, but Graham pinned him down. Kurt knocked Graham’s heart on the ground, and Graham winced in pain. Kurt escaped and jumped into his car, where Owen was waiting for him. They raced out of town, while Graham and Regina chased them.
At the last second, Graham and Regina cut them off, and Kurt yelled at his son to run. Owen gripped a keychain his father gave him, and Kurt told him he would always be with him. Owen reluctantly ran over the town line as his father instructed, leaving Kurt to Regina’s wrath. When Owen returned with the police later on, the town was nowhere to be found. He sobbed and vowed to find his father before leaving with the officers. Whatever happened to Owen?
