Last week’s Once Upon A Time rolled 37 stories into one. This fast-paced fairy tale had adventure minute to minute. Gold (Robert Carlyle) entered Belle’s (Emilie de Ravin) dreams in an effort to wake her with true love. Her dream setting was the castle where she first served him. Although the love part didn’t work (turns out even her fetus is against reconciliation), we got a “sigh” moment as they danced to the Beauty and the Beast theme song. Belle did get woken up, but left Gold. A flashback revealed that Aladdin (Deniz Akdeniz) used to be a savior, but Jafar (Oded Fehr – who definitely had to be a Dark One) broke him. The symptoms he had were ones that Emma (Jennifer Morrison) is experiencing now, but hiding from everyone except Mr. Hyde (Sam Witwer). These symptoms include the shakes, and visions of her unavoidable, and really soon future death. Refugees from The Land of Untold Stories crashed in Storybrooke, and they are coaxed out of hiding and welcomed. Regina (Lana Parilla) just cannot get past the role Zelena (Rebecca Mader) played in Robin’s death, however unintentional. This made her ripe for the Evil Queen’s picking.

Spoilers below.

Last week on Once Upon A Time, our Storybrooke heroes traveled to the Underworld and were greeted by some old familiar faces. Regina (Lana Parilla) saw her mother, Cora (Barbara Hershey) and her dad, and her mom was still manipulating her do to evil rather than good. Regina remained a hero though. Gold (Robert Carlyle) ran into his dad, Peter Pan (Robbie Kay). Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) got good and kissed by David’s twin James (Josh Dallas). Emma (Jennifer Morrison) got to see Neal (Michael Raymond-James), but only in a dream because he was in a better place. And we all met Hades (guest Greg Germann).

Season 5 Episodes 10: “Broken Heart”
Directed by Romeo Tirone

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 was the season 5 premiere of Once Upon A Time, and our Storybrooke residents have a new mystery to solve. They easily (kinda) trick Zelena (Rebecca Mader) into opening a portal to find Emma (Jennifer Morrison), The Dark One. Turns out, she’s in Camelot, seeking Merlin. She gets into a thing with Brave’s Merida (Amy Manson), but her people find her. But then, “Poof!” They are back in Storybrooke, it is 6 weeks later, and nobody remembers a thing. Nobody except, Emma Swan – full on Dark One.

Don’t proceed any further if you have not watched the episode. Spoilers!

Once Upon a Time

Written by Andrew Chambliss, Dana Horgan
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
ABC
Air Date: Sunday, April 26th, 2015, 8:00pm

Last week’s Once Upon A Time went into Cruela De Vil’s (Victoria Smurfit) history. At first we thought her a victim of her mother’s cruel imprisonment. We were fooled and so was the author. That was the twist I mentioned last week. The entire time we were completely taken in. That’s the way of fairy tales, no? The beautiful damsel with the terrible life is a victim of cruel yet uglier people. After giving her the power to control animals, he countered her cruelty by rendering her unable to take a life. Emma (Jennifer Morrison), not knowing that, was orchestrated into killing her, in order to save Henry. Regina (Lana Parilla) grabbed heart leverage in order to be able to save Robin (Sean Maguire) without Gold (Robert Carlyle) sending out a warning.
