Oh this show breaks my heart.
I loved this episode but I cried actual tears. Man.
Still, it's a great set-up for the second half of the season.
I love how both Regina and Gold completed their cycles of redemption.
I HATED that they killed Gold. I'm actually not sure whether he's gone for good or not though. I could believe either way. I hope we get some decent Belle follow-up though, because Emilie de Ravin's reactions were fantastic.
I also HATED that Neal was once again separated from Emma and Henry. However I do love that Emma and Henry got one normal happy year together regardless of what comes.
I loved how Regina redeemed herself. It was perfect, and I really hope it stays when she goes back to the Enchanted Forest and she doesn't like loose all her memories of what happened and turn evil again. That's not super likely though, since Hook obviously remembered everything when he showed up at Emma's door. Which was lame. It should have been Neal.. But whatever. (Shippers can ship whatever they want, I now ship Hook/Tink, but we'll see).
I've got my heart set on a Snowing baby in the spring.
Not sure what to think about the Wicked Witch of the West being the next big baddie, but it wasn't much of a surprise. (Would it be terrible to have a villain that was NOT sexy? Seriously. It's getting a little predictable.)
Ready for Robin and Regina to meet, and to see Aurora, Phillip and Mulan again. Plus it looks like Storybrooke is coming to the middle of the Enchanted Forest? Looks like it won't be goodbye for long... unless you count three months until we get another episode as long which I certainly do!!!!
