Any Once Upon A Time fans out there? If you’re up to date with the series, you know that Maleficent lost her child, because Snow White and Prince Charming, fearful that Emma may be born evil, cursed Maleficent’s child with that evil instead and had her banished to the real world. Because convoluted plot lines are an absolute must on the show. And of course, that child ended up being Lily, Emma’s former childhood friend, who she pushed away since she seemed to cause nothing but trouble. And now Maleficent, upon hearing her daughter is still alive, has asked Emma to go and find her, so that they can be happily reunited. And apparently Lily has already since learned the truth of what happened to her, because the sorcerer told her so years ago on a train. How did the sorcerer even get to the real world and find her? No idea. But Lily knows that her bad decisions and the fact that everything in her life seems to be so screwed up is not entirely her fault. Everything is harder for her, because she was cursed.
I don’t know, when they said she would be cursed with the most powerful evil, I assumed that she would end up being, you know, evil. Not just a person who makes bad decisions and has a shitty life. Just because you’re a huge screw up and bad things happen when you’re around, doesn’t mean that you’re evil. It makes you human. If she were truly evil, wouldn’t she be more like Cruella, who was just a born psychopath? When they said that she was cursed with a powerful evil and that her name was Lilith, I immediately thought of Lilith from Supernatural. Because that bitch was evil.
After watching the last episode, I thought to myself, I feel like maybe I’m actually cursed with someone else’s evil, and that’s why I make bad life choices. Wouldn’t it actually be great to know that your shitty life wasn’t entirely your fault and that there was someone else to blame? That every time you made the worst decision ever, it didn’t necessarily reflect badly on you, because that’s the way you were made to be? If there was such a thing as magic and evil and curses, I feel like that would totally explain my life.
