I just can’t shake the fact that we’re getting Philora again before the season is over, and the big thing that still needs resolution for them is how she brought him back. Granted, they could also be showing what’s up between them and Zelena, but is that really particularly important, isn’t it just enough to know that she threatened them for whatever reason? But then, couldn’t they make the two stories tie together nicely if Zelena learning how Aurora brought Philip back is how she knew that it was possible to bring Rumple back? They could just leave it as is and say that Zelena just knew stuff about stuff, but it’s a thing that she and Philora have in common now, this bringing someone’s soul back from the darkness situation, so if they DO plan to fill in that VITAL part of Philora’s history, it’s sort of unavoidable to notice the similarity to Rumple’s return. But then how do they show that stuff and make it relevant to present day in any way? It could be relevant to the SF situation. I’m not saying I have supreme confidence in the theory, I’m just saying, if they wanted to do it, it could work, and we know for sure that Philora will be back for SOME reason, and they’ve held off on revealing how she brought him back for this long, when it could have easily been covered with a couple of lines of exposition already.
