The Lord of the Underworld was destroyed tonight by the Olympian Crystal. Did you enjoy this villain? What sort of questions do you still have?"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"May 8, 2016 at 10:16 pm #323033
I have many questions but how about this one for starts:
no flashbacks? Really? So they weren’t going to try and flesh out Hades at all? At least problematize his brother vs brother story? We didn’t even see Hades and Zeus in a single moment together. So, Hades really is just that “Bad” and Zeus really is just that “Good”? There’s really no inbetween? No grey? No…nuance?
And guess it does turn out that Hades really did do all those tricks that the heroes accused him of last week, but we have no idea how he accomplished them since the tests for it were pretty specific."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"May 8, 2016 at 10:31 pm #323034MatthewPaulModerator
For now, I will say I’m not sure that I like that Hades could be killed. Gods are supposed to be unkillable, or ridiculously hard to kill at the very least. A shiny crystal is really enough? I think I would have preferred for Zeus to appear and arrest his brother, rather than killing him. That way Zeus could have been more involved in the episode, and him and Hades would have shared screentime. Either way, Hades was my favorite part of this Season, and I’m going to miss having him around.May 8, 2016 at 10:36 pm #323036

Greg Germann has more charisma in his little finger than a lot of our seasonal arc villains do. I’ll miss him as Hades too.
(but yeah, there is a certain amount of let down right now in regards to the whole arc….)"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"May 8, 2016 at 10:42 pm #323037TheWatcherParticipant
I am okay with their being a way to kill gods (and judging by Hades’s family heirloom comment, I am guessing that each of the gods has one of these to, presumably, use on the others in case things get out of hand) but my thing was that the story still kind of paints Zeus as an unsavory guy. Is there any reason he took Hades heart? Any purpose??? We got no backstory at all on this.
I don’t like it. Hades was cool, his death scene was amazing, but he definetly needed more backstory. And so…is he in the afterlife? I got the impression that the crystal doesn’t just kill you, it destroys your soul. If it was meant to kill gods, their is no use in just putting them back in the afterlife where they already were to begin with. But that has unfortunate implications because that means that RH isn’t just dead…..hes…nothing. Nowhere. N0 afterlife. Nothing.

Yes, it wipes you from existence. At least that’s how it was explained/monologued."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"May 8, 2016 at 11:12 pm #323045Francisco CasalsParticipant
Is not uncommon to kill a God in a TV show. Actually, another fiction TV shows around Greek mythology Hercules The Legendary Journeys & Xena Warrior Princess, had different “methods” to kill gods. I knew Zelena will end up killing Hades because she can’t possibly kill THE main character in OUAT. I was disappointed that Zeus only made a cameo and that they casted someone so young, if Hades is the younger brother and the actor looks like in his late 40s early 50s is ridiculous that the older brother is 20 or so years younger! They did it with Merlin but they had to screw Zeus too? It would had been cool have a flashback of Hades & Zeus but it wasn’t going to fit in this episode, a more deserving screen time was given to Robin Hood prior his demise. It is upseting that Regina is a widow ONCE AGAIN but Robin Hood was a decoration in the show. Sure, he had few episodes that featured him (particularly season 4), but hmm… who’s going to miss him? It also makes sense to kill him in order for Regina & Zelena to bond and raise the kids together as sisters unless of course the show creators decide to throw stuff in the fan again and screw that family too.
Now that Belle’s father refuses to wake her up I’m asumming Rumple will somehow garner the power of the Olympian crystal to wake up Belle. And for the God of love Eduardo Castro, can you take that ugly beanie from Emma’s head?!! How about everyone to get a costume change too huh? As much as I love Regina’s coat I’m already tired of seeing in every episode!!! ?May 9, 2016 at 2:13 am #323077AmdillaeParticipant
I am starting to think that Hades was not included to be real character in the series but as a catalyst for Zelena to redeem herself and turn to the side of light. His death is basically done as a way for her to show that she is willing to forsake what could be her own happiness to do what is right and save Regina in the process. Before this episode he showed that she believes in the redeeming power of love which is a huge step for her. While she has being claiming all season that baby Robin will be someone who can love her Zelena has had less focus on her loving in return, make a it selfish claim on her end. By showing what she is willing to do in the name of loving Hades has shown her development as a character. Was this a waste of what could have been done with the Lord of the Underworld as a character, yes it was but it was an interesting urn of events at least.

Other questions: if Hades had this Olympian Crystal that can kill gods AND if Hades can poof himself to other realms (see: 515, The Brothers Jones) why didn’t he poof himself to Olympus and y’know…kill the gods until everyone relented and agreed to let Hades be king of Olympus??"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"May 9, 2016 at 11:24 am #323138WickedRegalParticipant

I always thought in a sense that since Zeus was the most powerful God, he could more than likely survive an ambush like that and actually make Hades punishment worse than the first time.
