This season, Once Upon A Time went from Camelot to the Greek Underworld, from King Arthur to Hades with a bunch of Dark Ones thrown in. Half the characters were dead with unfinished business, and the show explored how darkness can overcome the best of heroes. The season was filled with the usual-yet-oh-so-successful formula of bad magic + bad deals + bad love… hmmm… these fairy tales don’t ever really have happy endings.

But that’s what makes it so entertaining, right? There are no limits – any realm, any time, any character, any story, any creature… can pop up to challenge our heroes.

Last week, we lost Robin Hood (Sean Maguire – nooo!!!!) and Hades (Greg Germann – meh), but Zelena and Regina (Rebecca Mader and Lana Parilla) were finally and completely united in sisterhood, and Hook and Emma (Colin O’Donoghue and Jennifer Morrison) were reunited in love.

Last week on Once Upon A Time, Dorothy was saved from Zelena’s (Rebecca Mader) sleeping curse with true love’s kiss from Ruby (Meghan Ory), and it was beautiful. I was really proud of the show from not shying away from a possible controversial storyline, where traditional fairy tales do not normally tread. The romantic tension between the two were apparent, as was their obvious struggle with their feelings. We saw Zelena really start to change by giving up the ruby slippers to Regina (Lana Parilla), and agreeing to help Belle (Emilie de Ravin). The help was the sleeping curse.

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, 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, fixing powder is sprinkled everywhere (I need some) – on Guinevere, so she will be loyal Stepford wife to Arthur (Liam Garrigan), on Camelot, and on Snow and Charming (Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas), so they will help Arthur take the Dark One’s knife. Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) thinks it’s cute that Henry (Jared Gilmore) has a crush in Camelot. Emma (Jennifer Morrison) is worried though. Back in Storybrooke, Emma has stolen Merida’s (Amy Manson) heart, and tasked her with making Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) brave, so he can remove Excaliber from the stone.

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!

Last week on Once Upon A Time, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) managed to get a vengeful Lily (Agnes Bruckner) back to Storybrooke to meet her mother, Maleficent (Kristin Bauer van Straten), who lost her taste in revenge and now wants to just be happy with her daughter. After Lily “dragons” out, she finally agreeas to give Maleficent a week. The episode title was “Mother” so Emma forgave hers (and her dad) for what they did to Lily to ensure her own goodness. And we were treated to a backstory with Cora (Barbara Hershey), who seemed like she wanted to make up for what she did to Regina (Lana Parilla). That didn’t really work out.

Before we get to Once Upon a Time 4.19 “Sympathy For The De Vil,” let’s recap the “Heart of Gold” episode from last week.

It was all about Robin Hood (Sean Maguire) and Marian a week ago when Gold (Robert Carlyle) goes to Neal’s apartment and finds the family there. We were all surprised to find out that Zelena (Rebecca Mader) was alive and well and had been posing as Marian, since we met her back in time. So Emma (Jennifer Morrison) didn’t ruin Regina’s (Lana Parilla) happy ending. But Robin is in severe danger and now Regina knows it. She makes a deal with Gold and agrees to help him turn the Savior dark.
