I liked Neal final sacifice and the fact that Hook finally came clean about his curse. Lana was great in this one, her emotions ran the whole gamut and I liked how Regina was the one to kiss Henry to make his memories return. But it was Regina who really stole this one again.

Thoughts....

YAY Henry has his memories back! And I love that it was Regina who broke the curse this time :) now we know.....Snow cast the curse, but Zelena twisted it. Snow/Charming sharing one heart has to come up again at some point surely....seems too neat a solution otherwise. Also, more Regina/Robin! :love:

Love that Neal was the one to send the potion to Emma. Neal > Zelena :D

Glad that Hook finally came clean to Emma....just several weeks too late :( aww I want my shippy goodness!!

This episode just made me happy all over---

Robin Hood and Regina....now and back in the Enchanted Forest.  Liked Henry catching them kissing. :D

Hook trying to save Henry by getting him out of Storybrooke. and confessing his lips were cursed

Snow and Charming casting the curse.....and two halves of the same heart.

Glinda!!! I like that they made Glinda and Zelena once friends but admit I'd like a peek at that OUAT backstory

That was some scene  for Henry to deal with....flying monkeys, magic, and swords

But so glad he's back in the know

Poor Aurora and Philip!

And Snow starting labor...

^^ Indeed.  I was wondering who those monkeys were, and I thought of Aurora and Phillip.  :(

But... DOROTHY!  I knew we'd be seeing Dorothy.  And she's the real deal, too.  :lol:

But I get ahead of myself.  This was indeed a great episode.  The revelation about the origin of the new curse was very good-- but the revelation that Charming sacrificed his own life, and that Snow and Charming now literally share a heart was amazing.  And I'm very glad that Henry now has his memory back-- as well as the magic book.  And Neal was the one who acted to save the day with the note.  And Hook finally came clean about his cursed kiss-- but now everybody thinks he's a liar about what he told the truth about.  Dude cannot win.  :no:

I'm glad Henry remembers now, and glad everyone else does too.  :)   I love that it was Regina who broke the curse, she really is completing her transition from villian to hero, isn't she?  And kudos to whoever said Henry remembering would be the key.  (I think someone said that?)  And also to whoever said Henry would just head back to NYC when he got sick of being lied to.  ;)

And we have an answer to the question I think a bunch of us were wondering: how could Zelena cast the curse without anything to sacrifice?  Answer: she didn't!  :oh:


I Loved Henry's face when Regina told him about "Robin ... Hood".  :cool:

Also, Snow and Charming's stubbornly innocent expressions when talking about the "snowbell"!  :lol:  And Regina's line about the "dancing daffodils", LOL! :lol:

Plus: "Why do women keep their shoeboxes?"
"Because after true love, there is no more powerful magic than footwear.  It has to be protected!" :howling:

Interesting that only Snow can conjure the storybook.  :think:  Here's my theory:  Snow has always described the book as a source of hope.  Maybe hope is Snow's greatest ... power?  For lack of a better word.


And an interesting parallel between Regina/Robin and Snow/Charming.  Currently, each couple has only one heart between them, Robin even mentioned as much at the beginning of the episode: "Use mine for the both of us".  :love:

We've seen that before, it's Bell's father's flower shop.  :)  (Though I think this was probably his delivery van.)  Whatever happened to him anyway?  I don't quite remember, but it can't have been anything good.  :unsure:

Also, before Zelena turned them into flying monkeys, it looked like their baby had already been born.  So who's been taking care of their baby?!?  :eek:  Did they leave it with someone safe, or what?  :o  (I would say possibly Mulan, but we don't even know what land she is in, and the actress is busy on Believe.)  :shrug:

I don't think it's necessarily that only Snow can conjure the book, but that Emma's attitude, or magic, or attitude and magic combined, was suppressing. it.
