So last night was the season finale of “Once Upon A Time,” which nicely set up next season and a possible new villain?
In both worlds Rumple/Gold set up various plans to reunite Charming/David and Snow/Mary Margaret. He gave Charming/David a ring in both worlds that would lead him to Snow. He claimed to be a fan of true love . . . and what true love brings. He’s said this a few times now . . . is it children? That’s what Rumple always wanted traditionally at least.
Henry was rushed to the hospital by Emma, who finally knew and accepted the truth. Everything he had been saying about the book was true. When Regina showed up Emma demanded she use her magic to stop this . . . but Regina said she had no more magic left.
Jefferson meanwhile was pissed when Regina went back on their deal. Regina said as she didn’t get rid of Emma as she had planned, she wasn’t about to help Jefferson get what he wanted. Did he even realize she probably couldn’t as when they were in the crypt she used the last bit of her magic to get the apple? How did he expect her to magically give him and his daughter a new life when she had no magic left?
Jefferson set out to punish Regina. He let Belle/Beauty out of her cell in the bottom of the hospital and told her to seek out Mr. Gold and say that Regina locked her up. He knew Gold would go after Regina with everything.
Regina meanwhile convinced Emma to battle an old friend who she locked up far beneath town, as she may have some magic they can use. It was Maleficent, who had back in Fairytale Land transformed into a dragon to fight with Charming. Emma, using her father’s sword given to her by Gold, battled the dragon and won. It left behind an egg, which of course Gold stole . . .
Gold had the egg and a potion of True Love (the one he made from Snow and Charming’s hair I think) and made a plan. Belle showed up, and he was stunned to see her . . .
Meanwhile as Emma was battling for the egg, Henry died. She went to him in the hospital and kissed him, which broke the curse. Not only did it bring him back to life, but everyone remembered who they were! The nun/blue fairy suggested to Regina that she move out of here and fast! Regina told Henry that everything she had done, it was because she loved him.
On the outskirts of town, Belle remembered who she was. Gold knew the curse was broken, but he wouldn’t be stopped. Gold dumped the potion into some kind of a well. A purple haze poured out and began to flow toward’s Storybook . . . Everyone looked on and Henry said this is something bad!
And the show ended!
What has Gold done? I don’t know, but he seems to have stepped up as the new villain of the show. Unless this is something good? We know he won’t return them to fairytale land just yet, because he still needs to find his son.
Unanswered questions . . . we still don’t know who Dr. Whale is. Obviously he got his memory back, but who is he? He never said anything.
The location of Gold’s son is also still unknown.
I feel confused as to when Regina figured out who Emma really was? It was as if she never knew before, she always wondered why Gold chose Henry? Now in this episode it was all laid out in front of her, especially when Gold presented Emma with Charming’s sword, which he said was her father’s. It’s as if Regina didn’t flinch!
