I liked this episode, I give it a 8.5/10
Lana did a really good job directing, the story focused on one story line and flowed really well.
Zelena’s line I guess you can take the dark one out of the pawn shop. She does get really good one liners.
Zelena: For a character I absolutely HATED (like I did not feel any sympathy/empathy for her at all) when she first appeared, then felt completely annoyed by, eventually thought was kind of funny but still wished she was gone, I am completely surprised that I am happy she got a happy ending. I mean I was like Yeah for Zelena (never thought that would happen)
Flashback: The flashback was really interesting and completely in character with Zelena. Zelena has always been a very powerful but insecure witch who really just wants someone to love her. She always seems to get really close to doing the right thing and then one thing goes wrong and she reverts back to being wicked. This is because she is constantly looking for approval from other people (Cora, Rumple, Hades, Hansel’s father, etc.) instead of truly liking the person she is.
Present Day: I thought this story was really good also. The dialogue between Nick and Henry was good and the interactions between characters seemed spot on.
Zelena and Robyn: Zelena stating that her happiness began with Robyn I thought that was a very sweet moment, I wish Margot could really understand the importance of that statement by having her memories.
Zelena and Regina: They have come a long way from two sisters who tried to hurt each other to loving and caring about each others happiness. Regina giving Zelena permission to go and be happy was outstanding. Erin will love that Regina gave her a shout out of “We are Both”
Zelena and Rumple: I liked the fact that they did not try and brush their relationship under the rug. These two don’t like each other and with really good reasons. Still thought it was nice that Rumple decides to help even if Zelena used Belle against him to do this. Even in death Belle is being used to manipulate Rumple. I loved that Rumple is still dishing out really good advice (you need the dark piece to remind you how far you have come and what you have to loose) He has come a long way!!!!
Facilier: He is so confusing, one moment I think maybe he could be good the next nope definitely a villain. Not grey but he is either black or white which is very confusing. So Facilier woke Nick up so that he would kill Gothel so he would not have competition for the dark one dagger? That would have been great but Gothel has not even mentioned the dagger yet so how do we know she wants it? Background would be good.
Rogers/Jacinda: Okay Jacinda if you were going to notice that you would have noticed it the first time you read it not after Rogers for some unknown reason asks you to reread a 10 word sentence. Very convenient for both Rogers and Jacinda.
Henry: When you are tied up by a serial killer do not argue with him!!!!! You are supposed to deescalate the situation not escalate it. Although I have to say that Nick said what we are all thinking that for the guy with the heart of the truest believer you are having a really hard time believing.
