OUAT Themes and Meanings – 3. All Magic Comes With a Price

One of the defining themes of Once Upon A Time, we’ve seen it come into play in every deal a character has made with Rumplestiltskin. Other examples include: Regina using magic to poison an apple only to have Henry eat it, and the Genie using the magic lamp to be with Regina forever – and becoming trapped in the mirror. We may not have magic in this world – but the potential consequences of your actions, and the price of instant gratification is something we must always be wary of.
