After our long hiatus we are back in the land of fairy tales and ridiculousness! Let's dive right into tonight's episode.
Tonight our intrepid travelers made their way into the Underworld where we, fortunately, find that not everyone will be there. Unfortunately, the people who will be there are people with unfinished business, which means that people we won't want to see are more likely to pop up. A flashback shows us more about Regina's battle with Cora as Regina in the present has to face up to what she did to her father. Rumple stomps around making vague threats to leave while not actually doing so, and Snow gets kissed by David's evil twin.
I was a bit surprised to get the Regina flashback and I'm really super confused about the timeline on things. I guess I haven't paid close enough attention. Part of me is curious as to Cora's story, but most of me doesn't care, especially if it means the return of Zelena.
|ALL the tears|
It was nice to see Regina 1) make the right choice based on the living people in her life 2) get some closure with her father 3) get to introduce Henry to Henry.
|And can we just talk for a minute about the way|
Regina and Robin were so quick to protect Henry
And how Henry just trusted them and clung to them
And was anyone else creeped out by pervy Jiminy Cricket crawling around in Snow's dress?
I'm not sure what I think about the introduction of the myths into this fairy tale world though. I mean, obviously the movie Hercules is a Disney movie, but the Disney Hercules isn't exactly like the actual mythical Heracles and it looks like they're going to be bringing in Cerberus and maybe other things? I'm not sure about it.
Also, if they really try to run around and save all of the people in limbo ... let's just say that's going to get really old really quickly.
