Last week’s Gotham, was psychedelic as Jervis Tetch (Benedict Samuel) dosed Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) with a hallucinatory drug, and the ride was as weird as expected. Barbara (Erin Richards) was his host and he visited several rooms in his mind – one of Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), one of a happy family life with Lee (Morena Baccharin), and then one with his dad, who seems alive and evil now. Ed and Isabella are in love, even after she knows the whole murdering Ms. Kringle story. Bruce and Selina (David Mazouz and Camren Bicondova) had a date. Barnes (Michael Chiklis) started losing it more because of the blood.

Two weeks ago on Once Upon A Time, there was tons of excitement, as Emma (Jennifer Morrison) made Zelena’s (Rebecca Mader) pregnancy speed up so she would go into labor. It’s a girl! The super exciting part for me was David Anders return as Dr. Frankenstein, but I guess Emma stealing Zelena (and not the baby like everyone thought), was exciting too. Turns out Emma wanted to put all the dark magic in Zelena, and then cut her down. Hook, as dastardly as he is, could not participate in that. To return the favor, Zelena showed Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) what Emma really did in Camelot. Hook was dying, so Emma tethered him to Excalibur, making him a dark one. And then there were two. But he hates her for it. The second half was a Merida (Amy Manson) story, where she needed to find a magical helmet before Arthur and Zelena does – one that will make men do her bidding. She finds out Arthur was the one to kill her father, and we get the return of Ruby and Mulan (Meghan Ory and Jamie Chung), her quest buddies.

Last week on Once Upon A Time, there were a few reveals. A long long time ago, The Dark One of that time killed Merlin’s (Elliot Knight) love, and turned him into a tree using his heartbreak tear. All this Emma (Jennifer Morrison) sees through her Dreamcatcher in flashback Camelot, alerting Regina (Lana Parilla), who decides to relive her Daniel/Cora heartbreak. Unfortunately (or fortunately) that break is too healed to be effective. Violet rejects Henry (Jared Gilmore), but we (and Henry and Robin and Regina) found out that Emma took Violet’s heart and made her do it, to capture a genuine tear from Henry. She did break the spell that was on her parents, so bad mother/good daughter. Merida (Amy Manson) is trying to teach Rumple (Robert Carlyle) to be brave so he can be the hero that pulls the sword from the stone.

Spoilers from tonight’s episode below.

Once Upon A Time Sean Maguire Robert Carlyle

Once Upon a Time
Season 4 Episode 18: “Heart Of Gold”
Directed by Billy Gierhart
Written by Tze Chun & Scott Nimerfro
Created by Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz
Starring Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Colin O’Donoghue, Jared Gilmore, Robert Carlyle, Sean Maguire, Rebecca Mader

Air Date: Sunday, April 12th, 2015, 8:00pm

Let’s recap the “Best Laid Plans” from two weeks ago, before we get to Once Upon a Time 4.18 “Heart Of Gold”

The villains are all a twitter trying to find the author so he can rewrite “history” so they can have their happy ending instead of the heroes. In order to do that, they must darken savior Emma’s heart. After much too much effort trying to cover their tracks, Charming and Snow (Josh Dallas and Ginnifer Goodwin) finally tell Emma (Jennifer Morrison) what they did in order to ensure her goodness. They took Maleficent’s (Kristin Bauer van Straten) baby and allowed it to be sucked into a portal to another world. I know that means we will eventually run into Maleficent’s spawn, but I’m glad they didn’t outright kill a baby, even though they thought it was just a baby dragon (Khaleesi!). They did release the author who promptly fled.
