So last night was the big two-hour finale on “Once Upon A Time.” As much I’ve enjoyed this second half of the season, that was one hour too long. That really could have been edited into one hour. Rather than recap everything, I’m simply going to post my thoughts on what is going on.
First up, I can’t remember how we got Jiminy/Dr. Hopper back. Wasn’t he dead? All of the sudden he has just popped up out of nowhere.
Speaking of dead, it seems like Zelena really is gone. They claimed once she died, the power in her amulet was no longer tethered to her, and it was this that enacted her curse. I am going to choose not to believe that so that they can possibly bring her back at some point.
More on the dead! The Maid Marian twist confused the hell out of me. I swear she died of some kind of disease with Robin by her side, not executed by Regina. Or maybe it was in childbirth? I just know it wasn’t like last night’s episode. Regardless, if she lived and Emma freed her, wouldn’t that have had a huge ripple effect? When Hook and Emma returned home, Maid Marian should have been with Robin the whole time, but she wasn’t. Why? Also, if Robin had Marian, he wouldn’t have fallen for Regina, and Regina’s heart wouldn’t be broken now. I really hated that they ruined Regina’s happiness and have made her backslide into a vendetta against Emma that was similar to hers against Snow.
Snow and Charming named their baby boy Neil. I was really hoping that they could have changed things and saved Neil. Perhaps that could still happen?
Regina warned Emma that she had better hope she didn’t bring anything else back with what she changed in the past. Cue the shot to the portal where Elsa from “Frozen” emerged. Oh boy! A lot of people feel this is just too soon. I just hope they do it right.
With “Once Upon A Time In Wonderland” canceled, they are said to be bringing Will/The Knave of Hearts over to “Once” next season. With “Revolution” also canceled, I hope they can find a way to bring Sydney/The Mirror back too . . . even though I think they killed him off. It’s been so long!
