Once certainly didn’t hold back with this week’s season finale. They pulled out all the stops! In Fairytale Land we pick up with Charming on his mission to save Snow White. None other than the Huntsman himself, who is dearly missed, helps Charming escape from Regina’s castle. And yep, she’s pretty ticked.
Charming soon finds himself faced with Rumpelstiltskin who has stolen the ring Charming has for Snow. In total Rumpel fashion, they make a deal. Charming will place an egg that contains a powerful true love potion into the belly of a beast. That beast ends up being the dragon-form of Maleficent. Charming succeeds and Rumpel returns the ring, thus Charming sets out to find Snow.
Unfortunately Snow is already “dead” and the dwarves have her placed in a glass coffin. But Charming wants his last goodbye. With true loves kiss, the curse is broken and Snow awakes. The two embrace and determine to take the kingdom back…together.
Meanwhile in Storybrooke, Henry is rushed to the hospital after eating the poison apple turnover Regina made for Emma. After the doctors find nothing wrong, Emma realizes all the stories are true and Regina confirms the curse. With the love both have for Henry, they join forces to save him.
They discover from Mr. Gold that the last remaining magic is locked away in the beast. Regina has kept her in a dungeon in her true dragon form and they send Emma down with her father’s sword. Emma tries shooting the dragon, but ultimately embraces the sword and defeats it. However, Mr. Gold tricks Emma into giving him the potion and he runs away.
The two women rush to the hospital after receiving phone calls, but it’s too late. Henry is dead. Emma and Regina are both upset. Emma gives Henry a kiss on the forehead with an ‘I love you’…and the spell is broken! Henry wakes up and not only is the curse on him broken, but the memory curse is broken as well. Everyone starts to remember. Charming finds Snow. The doctors all remember. Granny and Red. Suddenly the Evil Queen isn’t so safe anymore.
In a little bit of a side story, Jefferson (aka The Mad Hatter) is angry at Regina for not holding to her deal of reuniting him with his daughter. So he finds Belle, who Rumpel loved and thought was dead, and sets her free. He tells her to find Mr. Gold, which she does. Rumpel is in disbelief, but overjoyed. He brings her along with him and she remembers loving him when Emma breaks the curse. They arrive at a well and Mr. Gold throws the potion into the well. Cue the purple smoke taking over the town. Apparently magic is returning…and Regina seems pretty happy about that.
So, what did you think?! It was a pretty packed episode! Loved the dragon fighting…and that it was father and daughter in two different worlds! Also I’m a big fan of the whole breaking the curse thing. Granted, there’s still a lot more to it, but the fact that everyone is remembering shows that the writers aren’t going to draw it out forever. I’m PUMPED for next season. Lots more magic to come!
