Directed by Romeo Tirone

Created by Edward Kitsis, Adam Horowitz
Starring Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla, Josh Dallas, Emilie de Ravin, Colin O’Donoghue, Jared Gilmore, Robert Carlyle, Sean Maguire, Rebecca Mader
ABC

Two weeks ago on Once Upon A Time, there was tons of excitement, as Emma (Jennifer Morrison) made Zelena’s (Rebecca Mader) pregnancy speed up so she would go into labor. It’s a girl! The super exciting part for me was David Anders return as Dr. Frankenstein, but I guess Emma stealing Zelena (and not the baby like everyone thought), was exciting too. Turns out Emma wanted to put all the dark magic in Zelena, and then cut her down. Hook, as dastardly as he is, could not participate in that. To return the favor, Zelena showed Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) what Emma really did in Camelot. Hook was dying, so Emma tethered him to Excalibur, making him a dark one. And then there were two. But he hates her for it. The second half was a Merida (Amy Manson) story, where she needed to find a magical helmet before Arthur and Zelena does – one that will make men do her bidding. She finds out Arthur was the one to kill her father, and we get the return of Ruby and Mulan (Meghan Ory and Jamie Chung), her quest buddies.

Last week on Once Upon A Time, we meet the original Dark One, Nimue, true love of Merlin (Elliot Knight). Unfortunately, he created that monster. Having drunk from the Holy Grail, he was infused with power and immortality. He and Nimue fell in love, and he wanted to give it all up for her. She was having none of that, wanting the power to avenge her village. In the end, in present-day Storybrooke, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) is successful at repairing Excalibur. Zelena (Rebecca Mader) pretends to help, but then joins Arthur’s (Liam Garrigan) crazy team. She is able to make the other half of Excalibur a sword that can command Merlin. Uh-oh.

Last week on Once Upon A Time, it was all about our “brave” heroine Merida (Amy Manson) in both 6 weeks ago Camelot and present-day Storybrooke. In Camelot, Merida is freed when they free Lancelot (Sinqua Walls). Belle (Emilie de Ravin) helps her prove to her clansmen that she is queen material, and she saves her brothers. In Storybrooke, Merida is successful in making Rumple (Robert Carlyle) brave by using Belle. He pulls the sword from the stone. Emma (Jennifer Morrison) tries to make a deal with Zelena (Rebecca Mader) who rejects her. The Storybrooke citizens find out (again since they knew before the amnesia) that Arthur (Liam Garrigan) is evil. They also get a message from Merlin (Elliot Knight).

Last week on Once Upon A Time, there were a few reveals. A long long time ago, The Dark One of that time killed Merlin’s (Elliot Knight) love, and turned him into a tree using his heartbreak tear. All this Emma (Jennifer Morrison) sees through her Dreamcatcher in flashback Camelot, alerting Regina (Lana Parilla), who decides to relive her Daniel/Cora heartbreak. Unfortunately (or fortunately) that break is too healed to be effective. Violet rejects Henry (Jared Gilmore), but we (and Henry and Robin and Regina) found out that Emma took Violet’s heart and made her do it, to capture a genuine tear from Henry. She did break the spell that was on her parents, so bad mother/good daughter. Merida (Amy Manson) is trying to teach Rumple (Robert Carlyle) to be brave so he can be the hero that pulls the sword from the stone.

Spoilers from tonight’s episode below.

Last week on Once Upon A Time, fixing powder is sprinkled everywhere (I need some) – on Guinevere, so she will be loyal Stepford wife to Arthur (Liam Garrigan), on Camelot, and on Snow and Charming (Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas), so they will help Arthur take the Dark One’s knife. Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) thinks it’s cute that Henry (Jared Gilmore) has a crush in Camelot. Emma (Jennifer Morrison) is worried though. Back in Storybrooke, Emma has stolen Merida’s (Amy Manson) heart, and tasked her with making Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) brave, so he can remove Excaliber from the stone.

Last week on Once Upon A Time, we learned via flashback Lancelot (he’s alive! Sinqua Walls) that Arthur (Liam Garrigan) may not be what he seems. Mary Margaret (Ginnifer Goodwin) will probably have to try to break up the budding bromance between David (Josh Dallas) and Arthur. The suspicions are confirmed twofold to the viewers, when we see Arthur holding the Crimson Crown, a magical object that could allow them to speak to tree-trapped Merlin. But David almost drowned via ghostly knights, and Arthur saved him. I really don’t want David’s heart to be broken. In present-day Storybrooke, Arthur makes his squire commit suicide for his mysterious evil cause. Meanwhile, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) tries to snuggle up to Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), who is not having it. But really needs a blank slate to pull Excaliber from the stone. Voila! Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle)!

Some spoilers below.

Last week on Once Upon A Time, the story alternated between current day Storybrooke and 6 weeks ago Camelot. Nobody kows what happened but the dramatic irony is unfolding for the viewers. In Camelot, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) gives Regina (Lana Parilla) the Dark One’s knife for safekeeping, and she claims to be the savior they have been waiting for to free Merlin from the tree. Percival finds out the truth and tries to kill Regina, but is stopped and killed by David (Josh Dallas) at the ball. In Storybrooke, Robin (Sean Maguire) is carried away by a Fury as a death payment for the Underworld, but don’t worry. He is saved at the last minute.

Last week was the season 5 premiere of Once Upon A Time, and our Storybrooke residents have a new mystery to solve. They easily (kinda) trick Zelena (Rebecca Mader) into opening a portal to find Emma (Jennifer Morrison), The Dark One. Turns out, she’s in Camelot, seeking Merlin. She gets into a thing with Brave’s Merida (Amy Manson), but her people find her. But then, “Poof!” They are back in Storybrooke, it is 6 weeks later, and nobody remembers a thing. Nobody except, Emma Swan – full on Dark One.

Don’t proceed any further if you have not watched the episode. Spoilers!

Once Upon A Time Dark Swan Knife

When we last saw our fairy-tale crew in Once Upon A Time, having saved Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle) from darkness (please don’t be dead!), the darkness swarmed (looking like Venom’s twin) over Regina, needing a human tether. Emma (Jennifer Morrison) took her place with instructions for her love Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), her parents Snow White and Prince Charming (Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas), and even Regina and Robin Hood (Lana Parilla and Sean Maguire), to find a way to rescue her from darkness. She was consumed and then disappeared. Poor Henry (Jared Gilmore). Will he ever be happy and not worried about both his moms at the same time?

Watch the two promo videos and the moment in last season’s finale when Emma sacrificed herself for Regina below.
