Is this Henry Mills?
In the end it didn’t matter who the other coven members were because they are trees or what Facilier’s plan was because Wish Dark One Rumple killed him. All your Fan theories sucked! They were all Plot-fodder.
Anyway on with the episode. Apparently everything is in a time paradox and the Hyperion Height stuff is running along with Henry’s senior year and Adult Henry talkes to his young self meaning that the curse needed to happen so Henry could a realm hopping or Lucy wouldn’t be born. Now timeline are even more meaningless then they were before because no one could figure it before and now definitely no can make sense of it so don’t try.
It should be noted that the Storybrooke people wouldn’t have known that they were missing anyway even with the time-travel plot since as far the Storybrooke people knew Regina, Henry and the others were in another Realm anyway. Or was there communication in the intervening years and they never spoke about it? Doesn’t really matter because the scene with the two Henrys was good. Just wish they explained why Henry got to keep his name and not had another pseudonym.
Henry wakes up when after talking to Regina he calls himself in that time-paradox thing. So he wakes up and then he breaks the curse when he kisses Regina after she got knocked-out during a witch fight with Gothel. So it WAS a reversal of the parent-child true love kiss as it’s the child kissing the parent. Good! That was a nice reversal, it did sort of happened on season 6 with Henry and Emma after the Gideon fight but that wasn’t a Dark Curse breaking.
Then Tilly/Alice very quickly turns Gothel into a tree ruining her menace. In the end it was all very simple and easy. Now they JUST have to deal with Wish-Rumple and not Facilier. But to be fair Once Upon a Time has done this type of conclusion before, where the menace is built up and resolved very quickly or sometime not at all. Still want to know how Mulan and Aurora saved Philip’s soul from the wraith! But that is season 2 baggage.
The acting was the highlight of this episode but the plot having so much build-up for little pay-off and with wish-Rumple no payoff, the episode felt very flat for what it was trying to accomplish.Follow thehunchblog
Hey, nice post, but I wanted to actually make a suggestion, only didn’t know where.
May, 24 is international Saint Sara Kali Day – some say it’s the day of the gypsies, since she is the only Romani Saint – her story is quite beautiful actually, but she isn’t much known outside the community. There are big parties for her all over the world, some are even open to gadjes. Since Esmeralda is depicited as Romani in many movies, you could make a post about it, the biggest party is in France in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. There is dance, music and prayer.
Also you can see she still wears some indian-reminiscent clothing. It would be nice to see a post about the Patron of Romani People. She is related both to romanis, and therefore Esmeralda, and to the Church, for she is considered a Saint – and her biggest party being in France is a plus. I bet in the story of Esmeralda was set today, she wouldn’t miss the party at Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer!
Thank you! That is a wonderful suggestion. I’m definitely going to make a post on Saint Sara Kali on May 24th.
Thanks again ^^
