I hate the bizarre conversations where Zelena and Regina are calling the characters their fake names. Zelena calling her daughter by her fake name is ridiculous. They are doing that because they named the baby Robyn and it is confusing. Zelena and Regina calling Rumpel, Weaver, is stupid. It is like using Mary Margaret all over again.
The flashbacks were boring and pointless as usual.
I can’t believe that Henry is really figuring stuff out because of a blood test. Though, i guess in the end, he is still completely clueless. Hopefully, he will talk to Regina about it all. I am glad that Zelena is gone from the screentime using which i would rather they give to Rumpel, Regina, Robyn, and Alice.
Rumpel helping Zelena because that is the only way he is going to see Belle seems ridiculous. She killed his son. He doesn’t owe her anything. At least, he barely helped her by just giving her that necklace and a pep talk which really didn’t have all that much to do with the plot of this episode.
I did like the line about the little bit of evil inside that stays so that you know how far you’ve come. Of course, the villains on this show are never shown to change and make better decisions. They are just randomly rewritten at intervals. There is no growth and decision making shown on screen. They pretty much just rewrote Zelena by having her be Kelly. And excuse me while i vomit for the use of the we can be both line all again. Just stop.
Facilier is a weird character. We know he wants the dagger. Regina and him have a relationship. Prince Naveen is working with him for some reason. I can’t remember why or what he has on him that would cause Naveen to do that. Now, he just killed Hansel with some evil magic, just like that. Though, i am glad Hansel is gone. Facilier is a weird character without enough backstory to figure out. He is just there to do random evil til the end of the show.
The plots of these episodes need to be smoothed out instead of being all disconnected and disjointed. The problem always comes back to the writers lack of ability to write character with good motivations and having that drive the story. It is just a random series of unfortunate events.
