Barbara Hershey looks freaking gorgeous. That woman totally aged gracefully. Seriously.


I too would like to know how Hook took Aurora's heart and how he knew about it's power. How did Aurora survive without the heart?


well it's safe to say that Aurora is as good as dead :)


Interesting episode, though I am not thrilled that Hook somehow managed to get Aurora's heart without any of the audience seeing him do it, and without us even knowing that he could...kinda a plot hole there, writers.
Loved Charming and Snow meeting in the netherworld, though I am sad that Charming will have to stay there until they can get back to Storybrooke. And I love that Charming was so intent on saving Henry from another trip to the burning netherworld that he was willing to have a sleepcurse put into his bloodstream via a spindle.


Mulan seems like the new age Disney character that just doesn't have enough "antiquity" about her to give her any relevance, and Yes, she is mighty annoying and needs to work with them, not against them...especially since Aurora is totally on board. It's even hard to follow Mulan with that ever-flowing cape, at least quickly, as seen when everyone said, "We've got to hurry!" Mulan stepped off quickly but Snow and Emma were only able to dawdle as Mulan's cape took center stage-all of it! I bet i's been stepped upon more than once during rehearsals. Moving on...charming brought on the romance and some of those Zombies from the Walking Dead appear to have stumbled on to the wrong sound stage but why not-they didn't seem to be any real threat...not like that wicked Cora and...well, I somehow have to forgive Hook his shortcomings cause he's so easy on the eye and more than a little charming himself! Regina has no more "changed for good" (to coin a phrase from Wicked, the Musical) than Mr. Gold has given up magic for his one true love...but things are coming to a frenzied state of panic and I only hope they don't leave us completely hanging with Charming fast asleep and Snow and Emma under Cora's control in a land far, far away...until next season? Say it isn't so....puleeeze!


I liked this episode, and next week looks pretty good as well! I loved the fact that Emma told Snow to have faith - that they WOULD get back to Storybrooke and to Henry and David! Emma is discovering her Charming roots :)) She really is changing and growing as a character.


okay this is one of my favourite shows and as a fairy tale base I can go along with most everything they have given us so far ....but come on...whats with a pirate 'taking' a heart?????.....when did Hook aquire the indepth magic knowledge to take someones heart leaving them alive and unknowing???....also it was a little over the top that Cora could hear the conversation that was going on between Aurura and the other 3..... way over the top for me on this one.......lets hope the writers haven't lost their way with the Hook and Cora charactors.................the rest of the show was fabulous as usual.


Not as much Mr. Gold as I prefer, but what can you do? Mulan is getting on my very last nerve. We get it. You are protecting Aurora. I sorta wish Snow would have shoved that arrow in her throat. Maybe later. I do agree that Cora would not need Hook to get Aurora's heart. She is like a heart hoarder. The netherworld scene with Snow and Charming was so sweet, a high point of the episode for sure.


OUAT is really speeding along now. Decent episode, with some pretty inconsistent character moments. I do like how they are proving the old adage, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." There may not be loyalty among thieves. But, when revenge is the goal, makes for some very twisted alliances.

For a powerful magician who has been shown to be two steps ahead of her daughter and Rumple 98% of the time, Cora wasn't written very smart in this episode. Why did it take Hook to show her how Aurora could be used? Uh, no. That is NOT Cora, the woman who outsmarted Rumplestiltskin. Cora, heart collector extraordinaire, should have known this all along. BTW, Aurora's manipulation & the entire zombie army isn't consistent with what was shown previously, specifically with the Hunstman/Sheriff Graham. He didn't act like that, and he still had a conscience and his own will when Regina had his heart. Get ready for a cliffhanger next week!


Was I the only one who heard Emma blame Regina for everything after she and Snow had that conversation about guilt? What was that all about? Seems to me that Cora is, was, and likely always will be the cause of everyone's grief. If she hadn't been so fixated on getting a crown for Regina, everyone would have lived.. well you know... except her. She's OUAT's Wicked Witch of the West.
