I was fine with Mulan (Aurora annoyed me up until the very last time we saw her, then she was ok) but I really thought their story wouldn’t be revisited until season 3. There’s so much packed into this last half of the season: Rumple/Bae; Rumple/Belle; Emma/Nealfire; Hook/Regina/Cora; Cora/Rumple; The Town/Axis of Evil; Greg Mendell and now FTL of the present??
Yes, I agree.
On one hand, I was disappointed that Aurora and Mulan just got left behind so easily after all the time spent with their characters and all the hype over the summer about those them being on the show. On the other hand, I felt like the present day FTL story line didn’t really go anywhere except to introduce Cora and Hook as the new villains and could have been resolved much quicker.
Unless there’s something big this season with the Wraith and/or the Room of Fire, then I’d rather they just save Aurora’s and Mulan’s back stories until next season because just going by the spoilers surrounding episodes 13-17, it still feels like there’s a lot of ground to cover, and not many episodes left to do that in.
