light and dark side

Final Battle Thoughts

It’s no secret to those I’ve spoken with that I really had issues with 6x14, not just the CS poor communication but with the ending to the EQ/Regina split. I wrote up my thoughts here.  And then @rock-and-compass wrote an interesting meta here that pulled out something else.  

I know of the people that I spec with a few disagree with me on the message the show is trying to send about light/dark but basically I feel that Once is showing us that we all have light/dark and that even if we split our sides apart, each side would have both light and dark.  

With J/H they showed this by having Hyde love and Jekyll going after Belle and in the end, they both died because they were broken. 

To parallel this the EQ/R, after the EQ used the (short-cut) shears and separated them, we were shown that Regina’s ‘light’ side was stronger than her ‘dark’ side but instead of integrating and taking on ALL of the darkness, she shared some of her ‘light’ with the EQ, therefore making 2 that are essentially the same.  This can’t last though because for us all to have both light/dark ONE side has to be stronger since EQ/R are essentially ½…. The parallel to this then will be that the ‘stronger’ of the two will be the ‘light’ since the stronger of J/H was the ‘dark’.  

So I do believe we are going to get the EQ back and she’s going to be worse than before.  AND because the EQ used the shears she can be ‘killed’ without her other side dying, unlike J/H.  

Now in the WW Rumple told Regina that Emma, the savior was born because the EQ, was her villain.  Adam has said that the EQ is Emma’s Jafar. S

Why swords?   Maybe no magic?   But they did show that the sword that Gideon now has can harm the EQ and not harm Regina.  

If Emma ‘kills’ the EQ then there should be integration I would hope.  Only then will it be a complete redemption for Regina.  

Maybe that’s the battle that occurs on top of the beanstalk?

to people who hate on the prequels

ok first of all:
who the fuck are you.

second of all: i 100% believe the prequels did the best in STABBING YOU IN THE HEART. There is so much emotion and angst especially in ROTS. ESPECIALLY. You fall in love with each of the characters since the phantom menace and see them grow up and become a family. Then, rots comes along to give you the reality of what has to happen for the original trilogy to make sense and you cry bc holyfuck you can’t change what must happen.
Remember the scene where all the Jedi are being murdered from order 66 and you hear that emotional deathly background music? If you’ve seen the clone wars episodes it hurts even worse because you feel like you’ve known those characters your whole life and oh! on top of that: the man who practically raised anakin has to fight him on mustafar in practically the next couple scenes. OBI WAN, THE TRUE JEDI, TELLS ANAKIN HE LOVED HIM AND WATCHES ANAKIN BECOME THE MONSTER HE FEARED. OBI WAN WENT THROUGH SO MUCH SHIT ALREADY HIS OLD MASTER QUI GON DIED IN HIS FUCKING ARMS AND TOLD HIM—NO MADE HIM PROMISE HIM TO PROTECT AND TEACH ANAKIN. AND NOW OBI WAN LOST ANAKIN TOO.
ANAKIN, A BOY, MANIPULATED BY PALPATINE AND THE DARKSIDE HAS GONE TRHOUGH FUCKING HELL. HE HAS DREAMS ABOUT HIS WIFE DYING!!!!!!!!! HE IS SCARED???!!?! HIS LOVER/BROTHER/MASTER/FATHER IS ON OPPOSITE SIDES AND THEY FIGHT TO THE DEATH?!?!!!! AND FEELS BETRAYED BY HIM AND THE JEDI?!?! (and btw the fight scene on mustafar was the fucking best lightsaber fight scene ever don’t lie) AFTER OBI WAN CUTS HIS LEGS/ ARMS OFF YOU SEE THE PAIN, CONFUSION, DOUBT AND SADNESS IN HIS EYES AND ANAKIN YELLS “I HATE YOU” TO THE MAN HE LOVES.
so don’t fucking tell me that the prequels were shit. they explain the back story of what vader was before he joined the darkside. and it’s painful to see such a good person like anakin skywalker get everything taken away from him.
