TV relationships have grown beautifully this year resulting in some of the most gorgeously compelling scenes we’ve seen in a while. But best of all, relationships have strengthened wonderfully. They’ve endured. They’ve fought. Whether the bonds have been platonic or romantic, they’ve effortlessly found their way into our hearts and onto this list.
A whole new world, a new fantastic point of view. (You all saw that coming.)
Episode Summary: In flashbacks, Aladdin (Deniz Akdeniz) accompanies Jasmine portrayed by Galavant’s Karen David on an adventure to find a weapon, and in doing so he learns that he’s actually the weapon — the savior. In present day Storybrooke, the Evil Queen pretends to be Archie in order to learn Emma’s secret then “he” ends up revealing the fact that she’s hiding something in front of her family prompting her to tell them about her visions.
Review | Analysis: “Street Rats” was yet another episode that beautifully brought to life one of Disney’s classics. It may be too soon to already adore Aladdin and Jasmine, but here we are wanting them to stay in our world forever. At its core Once Upon A Time has been a show about hope and “Street Rats” was the perfect example of the fact that no matter what a person’s fate holds, where there’s hope, there’s everything. And over the years our characters have needed to learn a lot about the power of hope, but most importantly they’ve needed to believe in the fact that they deserve to have hope.
Hope is a powerful weapon, but in the world of Once Upon A Time our characters tend to believe that hope isn’t even an option. They’ve reached their last resort, but as we’ve learned, hope is a choice, and that’s something we have full control over.

The Charming Family (Once Upon A Time)
There’s no tragedy or heartache on Once Upon A Time as horrific as the fact that Charming and Snow weren’t given the opportunity to watch their little girl grow. And every so often we’re clouded with the thoughts of what if. What could’ve happened if they had raised Emma as they planned? Would they be different today? Would she still have her walls up? Would she be happier as a princess? Would she still have had Henry? However, despite the unfortunate reality that she was never given the chance to experience a childhood in a loving environment, Emma’s relationship with her parents is one of the most fascinating relationships on television. The Charming Family consisting of Henry and baby Neal as well share incredibly uplifting and beautiful moments together showcasing that it’s never too late to give someone your all. And it’s most definitely never too late to be a family.
