Bad Girls Club – A Recap of Once Upon a Time’s “Darkness on the Edge of Town”

Who’s the evilest of them all? Three new contenders for the crown arrive in Storybrooke, but the true winner is someone you’d never expect…unless you saw the promos

Mean Girls. Every high school had them. Awful people, really. Rude, narcissistic, materialistic bullies, who seem to have been put on this Earth for the sole purpose of making everyone else’s lives miserable.

So, how come they always seemed to be having so much more fun than you?


In real life, mean girls are people to be feared, despised, and generally avoided at all costs. But in the wily world of fiction, they are our secret spirit animals. They have the best lines, wear the coolest outfits, and drive the fastest cars. While the good girls are sitting home on Saturday nights playing Scrabble with Granny and going to bed early so that they can wake up in time for church, the mean girls are out tearing up the town. And from the comfort of our living rooms (and without that pesky fear of getting arrested), for a short window of time we get to tear up the town right along with them.

TV villains can do that for us. They allow us a perfectly safe outlet to take a walk on the dark side, to unleash the hidden divas that lie within us all . . .

That, my dearies, is why Season 4B of Once seems so very promising. Because, for the first time since Evil Queen Regina’s reign of terror back in Season 1, the Bad Girls have taken the wheel. And that means that we are in for a very bumpy ride!
