Yes, at this dire moment when Hook has been torn from Emma, leaving her vulnerable to Gideon’s attacks, let’s spend an episode with Aladdin and Jasmine, and The Subplot That Literally Doesn’t Matter.
Also, let’s kill that Hook/Emma tension immediately, too.
To ABC’s credit, this actually does feel like a proper finale.
If they somehow managed to get renewed, I don’t know how they’re going to bullshit their way out of this ending.
It’s a good thing.
Amara’s back, bitches.
Her first act? Accidentally cause Cyrus to be impaled and die.
She really failed those kids, hey?
Thank God, Cora lives.
It’s okay. I’ll take what I can get.
It turns out the Red Queen has the stoicism of a ball of rice paper in a deluge.
I expected better from her.
And even if it turns out to be all part of some scheme, I can’t abide her willingly enduring such humiliation.
What happened, Red? You used to be cool.
I actually forgot this was coming back. I knew regular Once Upon a Time was back this week, but I didn’t realise this would precede it.
A pleasant surprise?
Alice doesn’t die, so settle down.
Maybe one day, but not today.
I’m so late posting this episode, that I actually got around to posting the Once Upon a Time episode that aired days afterwards before this.
Sometimes I think I might be in danger of having a life.
But then I remember that I still watch Revenge, and I’m brought back down to Earth.
So, Alice almost becomes a tree this episode.
A surprisingly nimble tree.
