Top Five Favorite "ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND" (2013-2014) Episodes

Below is a list of my top five favorite episodes of "ONCE UPON A TIME IN WONDERLAND" (2013-2014).  The series was created by  Edward Kitsis, Adam Horowitz, Zack Estrin, and Jane Espenson:


1.  (1.13) "And They Lived . . ." - The series ended with this very satisfying and emotional episode in which Alice and her friends gather to prevent a very powerful Jafar from taking control of Wonderland.

2.  (1.07) "Bad Blood" - While Alice and Will/Knave of Hearts plan to rescue Cyrus from Jafar's floating island, the latter uses Alice's father to coerce her into using her second wish.  Flashbacks reveal how Jafar's tumultuous relationship with his father led him into becoming a villain.

3.  (1.11) "Heart of the Matter" - Alice and Cyrus discover alarming information involving Jafar's prisoners.  Meanwhile, Will, who is now a genie, can help an endangered Anastasia (the Red Queen) by surrendering desperately needed information to Jafar.  Flashbacks reveal Anastasia's burgeoning friendship with Cora Mills (Queen of Hearts) before her marriage to the Red King.

4.  (1.04) "The Serpent" - The Queen of Hearts kidnaps Will on Jafar's behalf, who wants him publicly beheaded in order to force Alice to make a wish.  Flashbacks reveal how Jafar became a magic practitioner and why he wants Cyrus' genie powers. 

5.  (1.08) "Home" - The Red Queen's collaboration with Jafar breaks apart, while Alice and Will plan to reunite with Cyrus.  Meanwhile, the latter ceases to become a genie, thanks to a wish that Alice had given to Will and he had cast.
