It’s necessary to mention that we also love how Snow ran after Maleficent without hesitation. When she said she’d make matters right, she meant it with every part of her being. And that’s who the Charmings are – no matter how much a person’s wronged them, their intentions are always to protect. It’s clear that she’s felt horrifying remorse for what they’ve done and because of it, she’ll fight twice as hard to ensure Maleficent’s happy ending. Maleficent ran towards Dragon Lily because she’s her daughter, but Snow ran towards her because she didn’t want Maleficent to be alone just in case something happened. And if that doesn’t solidify her heroism nothing else will. (x)

Maleficent:*proceeds to be the most moral "villain" on the show and gets her happy ending right before the finale*
are just one episode away from the Once Upon A Time Two-hour season
final….Mother had to pick up the pace a bit in the action department.
starts with a flashback to Daniel’s death day and an Evil queen who is on a
mission to torture and kill everyone who calls her weak. Of course this time
her behaviour is linked to this painful death and things aren’t getting better
when Cora suddenly appears at Daniel’s grave claiming that she wants to help Regina
find love (Did Wonderland really change this woman? If so I know a few more
characters to send)
things first how is Cora going to find the soul mate? Well easy peasy (yes I
wrote that). Our good friend Tinker bell told Cora all about Regina’s almost
meeting with a man with a lion tattoo.
search for Robin Cora encounters the Sheriff of Nottingham who is trying to
work his way into Cora’s pants (or dress whatever pleases you).
scene where we see an exciting Cora rushing over to Regina to tell her some
good news ….she found Robin.…so no time to waste …time to make babies…I
mean time to fall in love
when I think Cora really did change Sheriff Nottingham appears, pretending to
be the man with the lion tattoo but unfortunately for him he uses the weak word causing
Regina to throw him in the dungeon and plotting revenge against her mother.
decides that the best way to hurt her mother is to take away everything that
can give her power including taking away her own ability to have children (I
certainly wasn’t the only one screaming NO! at my screen when Regina took the
have been the most painful flashback I have ever watched! I finally understand that not only the sight of Zelena and Robin together must have nearly killed Regina but also the fact that Zelena could give Robin the child she could never give him…ugh this is breaking my heart into a million pieces.
Storybrooke present day
Before they return
back to Storybrooke Robin and Regina have a little heart to heart.
it very clear that Regina is having a difficult time to process the news of
Zelena’s pregnancy .And who can blame her? She let go of her happy ending with Robin so he could honor is code and protect his family and now it turns out he is starting a family with the one person who despises her the most. Okay Robin didn’t know but still this leaves scars. No matter where they go from there on there will always be
something huge (literally) between them.
Though this scene was actually kind of sad, Robin still managed to ask an
important question ‘What about Roland?’
I am so
happy the writers handled this situation and not just brushed it off…the boy
will lose his mother again (even though it isn’t really his mother but still) ,
he will be traumatized and that’s why Regina will give him a memory potion so
that he will only remember everything that happened before Marian (Can we
assume that Roland will think Robin and Regina are still together?)
Storybrooke a reunion is in order when
the trio returns. Can we please stop and discuss the hug Emma and Hook
Even though they were apart for
just a couple of days …they hugged liked they didn’t see each other in
months….as if once they had each other in their arms they never wanted to let
go again *aah that’s what I call amore*
we see Rumple and the author trying to find a way to make the ink work since
there isn’t much time left.
Rumple’s heart is almost entirely darkened so he
needs his happy ending and fast but since this is OUAT there must be an obstacle and in comes
Regina…..taking the quill and the author away from him *give this man a
blanket and some hot cocoa he needs it*
and Lily have a hard time to connect as Maleficent refuses to take revenge on
Snowing. And I support her in that like she said she wants to be happy in the
future and not angry in the past. Lily not taking this news very well runs off
only to be further angered by Regina.
Why is Regina trying to make Lily mad? Well Regina needs the blood of the riled
up saviour to get the ink working and
since Emma’s darkness is transported into Lily, Lily’s blood will work
One problem this little action makes Lily turn into a dragon, knocking Snow
against a couple of rocks.
beautiful scenes happen after this moment (The second I will discuss later on)
We see Maleficent searching and Finding Lily who is clearly scared and upset
about everything that just happened to her. She admits that she pictured her
mother as a dragon bitch who would have no problem to take revenge and that she
is scared to let Maleficent in because she always let down the people she
loves. (sounds familiar?) It is so beautiful to see how a mother can embrace and love her child
after all those years. I had so much love for Mal when she was waiting for her
daughter and I had so much pain when her daughter rejected her but seeing the
two of them sitting there accepting each other’s flaws is so beautiful and real
that I can only applaud the two actors for their work.
Now let us go back to Regina…with the author by her side she is ready to write Zelena
out of the story making sure that no one would remember her. And even though I
loved Zelena’s sass during the entire episode I felt her pain when Regina’s
word sank in. Beneath her tough attitude she is still a person who is searching
for the love her mother never gave to her…she wants to be remembered and not
tossed aside like her mother did to her. And she is using this to call out
Regina…accusing her that she is just as cruel as her mother.
clearly have impact on Regina. She has been working so hard to throw away her
evil queen image and stepping away from the legacy her mother has left behind
that she knew that Zelena was right. She finally realizes that the only thing
she wanted was a world that felt like home and she found it …and let me just say thank god that her happy ending isn’t about a man but about her own happiness Robin i is just a part of it…
the only thing she
wanted was a place where she belonged and she found it with Henry, her friends
and in Storybrooke a place she could finally be who she really is …. a hero
with a few flaws (hey nobody can be perfect)
author is a bit pissed that Regina took him away from Rumple for no reason and
he poofs himself away…to where you ask? Well scroll down to the end of the
recap and you will now but first the second beautiful scene of the evening.
The talk between
Emma and Hook at the docks with a bottle of rum.
It was so
beautiful and perfect in every way. Hook knows that Emma needs her parents by
her side, that she will regret it if she keeps pushing them away. He wasn’t
pushing her in any way to make amends with them but he was pointing out that he
knows that her parents lied because they were ashamed…the only thing they
wanted to do was protect Emma….
yes they did it in a crappy way but if you
were in their place and you had to safe your child you would do the same don’t
Emma, he knows what she really needs and he knows that he can get through to
her because they share the same fears, they have scars and that’s why they rely
so much on each other they are alike. Besides he knows what Snowing has been going through he did the almost the same thing to protect Emma ( Remember the whole heart thing) Hook understand how heart it is to admit something you are ashamed because you are afraid what the people you love will think of you.
response about the fact she liked it when people find their good heart was also
a little nod to how much she admires Hook for finding the goodness in him and
stepping away from the darkness because he wanted to be a good man on his own
By the end
of the episode Emma makes amends with her parents ,forgiving them. She finally
realize that after what they did to Lily they also tried their best to be a
good person, to be heroes just like what Hook did.
(did you see the look Emma
gave Hook, and the approving nod he gave her?
She needed him to know that she understood what he was trying to say to
her, that she was listening to him , that she values his opinion and Hook is
showing her that he supports her no matter what)
everyone getting a happy ending (besides
Zelena who is still locked in her cell)…let us see where the author poofed
joined Rumple once again and is determined to write him a happy ending. (I
always knew that the author was a shady person)
Rumple conjured a book for the author to write in and by that he makes
sure that everything is about the change as we see the title of the new book.
It is time
for the villains to get their happy ending
and it all start with a once upon a time.
Now we wait
until the final airs which promises us intense moments and many many many
But in the
meantime, let us enjoy the sight of Hook and his sexy hair….
Snow essentially was like, “Here are my problems with Emma” and Maleficent was like, “FOCUS!!! How can you actually help me?! Please stop talking about yourself and help me.” The Charmings’ answer was to drive around town in their truck. Okay? Until a dragon stopped them. Lily had turned into a dragon because Regina cut her with a pen knife. Maleficent was like, “So proud of my BB!”
This was my favorite scene in the whole episode. NOT because Snow got thrown skull-first into a boulder… which, like, how she survived that who knows. But because Maleficent was so excited to see her daughter as a dragon. Your dragon self is your best self. I also loved how concerned she was about Lily’s first flight. The best! ~ Lily Sparks[x]
Granny, could you please provide rooms for Maleficent and Lily? I know what you've probably heard about Maleficent, but she is changing her life. It would really mean a lot to me and Charming to have them both be welcomed and treated well in this town.
I about died laughing when Zelena said something like “Robin wouldn’t like it if you killed the mother of his child,” to Regina.
Like HAhahahahaha! He didn’t even care the first time! Hell, he didn’t care the second time, when he was told Zelena killed “rescued” Marian. Someone please save all the children around these three horrible people.
