Last week on Once Upon A Time, it was all about our “brave” heroine Merida (Amy Manson) in both 6 weeks ago Camelot and present-day Storybrooke. In Camelot, Merida is freed when they free Lancelot (Sinqua Walls). Belle (Emilie de Ravin) helps her prove to her clansmen that she is queen material, and she saves her brothers. In Storybrooke, Merida is successful in making Rumple (Robert Carlyle) brave by using Belle. He pulls the sword from the stone. Emma (Jennifer Morrison) tries to make a deal with Zelena (Rebecca Mader) who rejects her. The Storybrooke citizens find out (again since they knew before the amnesia) that Arthur (Liam Garrigan) is evil. They also get a message from Merlin (Elliot Knight).

Last week on Once Upon A Time, the story alternated between current day Storybrooke and 6 weeks ago Camelot. Nobody kows what happened but the dramatic irony is unfolding for the viewers. In Camelot, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) gives Regina (Lana Parilla) the Dark One’s knife for safekeeping, and she claims to be the savior they have been waiting for to free Merlin from the tree. Percival finds out the truth and tries to kill Regina, but is stopped and killed by David (Josh Dallas) at the ball. In Storybrooke, Robin (Sean Maguire) is carried away by a Fury as a death payment for the Underworld, but don’t worry. He is saved at the last minute.

Air Date: Sunday, May 3rd, 2015, 8:00pm

Last week on Once Upon A Time, we delved back into Emma’s (Jennifer Morrison) childhood again to revisit her and Lily’s troubled connection. it seems Lily (The Returned‘s Agnes Bruckner) makes all the wrong life decisions and is very dark, only lightening up when she’s around Emma. In the present, Emma and Regina (Lana Parilla) team up to find Lily and save Robin (Sean Maguire) from Zelena (Rebecca Mader). They are successful on both counts. Well… I guess it depends on how you define success. Zelena is pregnant with Robin’s baby. That is the twist that twisted their hearts – and ours. Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Charming (Josh Dallas) try to appeal to Maleficent (Kristin Bauer van Straten) – to no avail.

Last week on Once Upon A Time, we were transported to Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and Ursula’s (Merrin Dungey) past, and found that there was not a relationship between them as we, the audience, first thought. Hook had stolen her voice, but made a deal. He would finally gave her back her voice, if she let him know what they had in store for his Emma. Both fulfilled their end and she left, swimming off towards the horizon with her formerly estranged dad. Gold (Robert Carlyle) and the girls aged August (Eion Bailey) and then tortured him. Emma (Jennifer Morrison) was glad to see her old friend again. We were, too.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 9, Vol. 1 reviewBuffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9: Library Edition, Vol. 1
Written by Joss Whedon, Andrew Chambliss, Jane Espenson, and Scott Allie
Illustrated by Georges Jeanty, Karl Moline, and Cliff Richards
Colored by Michelle Madsen
Cover by Steve Morris
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: January 14, 2015
Cover Price: $29.99

The classic slayer wit and charm returns in Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9: Library Edition, Volume 1. After an epic, yet fairly disappointing story-arc in season 8, Joss Whedon, Andrew Chambliss, Georges Jeanty, and a small group of other talented writers and artists have recaptured the allure and excitement that made Buffy, well…Buffy!

Season 9 has been available for a while now — with season 10 already in the middle of its run — but if you haven’t had the chance to check it out yet, the Library Edition, Volume 1 is the perfect place to start. Collecting the first and second volumes of the ninth season, as well as a couple of one-shots, there is a plethora of scoobie mischief to take a stab at all at once.

Release date: June 1, 2011

The end is near! In Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight Vol. 8: Last Gleaming, Buffy, her army of vampire slayers, and the original Scooby gang face the biggest challenge of their lives. With an onslaught of demons coming to destroy the world, Buffy and her team must defeat the demonic threat while also facing the biggest betrayal in Buffy’s history as a vampire slayer.

I’ve been a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer throughout its entire 7-season television run. When creator Joss Whedon decided to continue the series in the comic book medium, I was really excited. I read most of the season 8 run, but felt that it was stretched out a bit too long. When Whedon said that Season 8 was ending with Issue #40, I wanted to see how it was going to end. I’m glad that I caught up with Season 8, because this volume is a nice wrap up that leaves a huge plot to be fleshed out in the upcoming Season 9 series.
