Do you watch Once Upon a Time on ABC? If you don’t you should. It—is—AWESOME!
As I watched it last night with my hubby, I started to wonder…Do you like stories where you know the ending from the very beginning?
The pilot episode of Once Upon a Time starts with Snow White and Prince Charming getting married and the Evil Witch cursing everyone. It’s dramatic and exciting. So far so good—right? But then every other episode is a flashback showing some snippet of the story before the curse.
I love the show (I really do), but I will say that some of the mystery is lessened. I don’t worry that they might not get together because I know they will. The mystery then takes on a new dynamic. How do we get from point A to point B?
This is nothing new. Most romances are structured this way. We know they will get together. The drama is in HOW?
I’m so curious and I want your feedback. Do you like this kind of storytelling? Or do you prefer to be completely in the dark?
