Send Up a Prayer for Finished Effects After Watching This Deleted Once Upon a Time Scene

In a deleted scene from the fifth season of Once Upon a Time, Hook confronts Regina about the whole “kill your father thing.” That’s not the best part of this deleted scene. The best part is the effects.

I know that there’s no reason to finish the effects on a deleted scene. I also know that Once Upon a Time’s effects are, at best, a little wobbly. But the green screen on display here is amazingly bad. It gives all the real things a solid line around them and flattens out the actors. They all look like paper dolls and I love it.


Watch the scene, via Entertainment Weekly, below and love it as I do.
