Ugh... I didn't want Nick/Hansel to die... Now I have some mixed feelings about Facilier. I don't like him, but I was hoping he could help Regina get a happy ending, so I don't want him gone.

I guess this is Zelena's final goodbye. Glad she got a her happy ending (or beggining, whatever)

I wonder if there's going to be a love triangle between Sabine, Drew and Rogers. Unless Facilier decides to just kill Drew off too... that jerk

^I don't think Rogers is a potential romantic partner for Sabine.

This episode was so good! I was so moved by Zelena's story this time in the fb and HH. I cried real tears as she said goodbye to Regina. I'm so glad she's able to make the right choices now. I also loved that in the fb she tried to put right her mistakes, but it was so shocking that she burnt Hansel! I think I gasped at that bit.

Also loved the tension between Zelena and Rumple, but it was great that he helped her despite their history.

So Robin has the necklace? Something makes me think this may come back in another episode... She's staying for Alice/Tilly!

Nice hero moment for Rogers rescuing Henry.

So Facilier woke up Nick? I was so shocked when he killed him though. Also he has an agenda against Gothel, too?

Not exactly a bad episode. Nice to finally get some development with the Nick Facilier and Naveen subplots.

Hansel really did consider Henry a friend, and told him he was Lucy’s father. Too bad he died. He was really just a victim of the coven. Of course no one will care now that he’s dead.

The flashback scenes just felt average. Just another day in Oz for the wicked witch.

Still not a fan of Zelena sharing scenes with Rumple. It’s obvious being around him makes her uncomfortable. And the necklace didn’t exactly help her. Makes sense she’d pass it down to Robin though.

So she’s leaving to marry her muggle boyfriend. Even former witches can get happy endings.

It was Zelena who burned him, not Gothel's coven. And she burned him in retaliation for his attempt to attack her with a dagger. The whole situation came off as rather ambiguous and complicated . . . and from bad choices made by both Zelena and Hansel.


Dr. Facilier is coming off as a very complex and ambiguous character. In some ways, he seems to be more of a trickster than Rumpelstiltskin.

I don't know what Dr. Facilier was going to say in that last scene because 'Breaking News', couldn't wait five minutes. Does anyone know what his motivation is?

He killed Nick because he failed to kill Mother Gothel who like him is after Rumple's powers.And with that scene i am officially hating Dr.Faicilier-he's just so manipulative.Hope he doesn't get a chance with Regina



The episode was super emotional for me because like all of you i got soo used to Zelena/Kelly and leaving and the goodbye scene with Regina i didn't see that coming.I am sure Zelena will be back for the series finally.So happy that after all she got her happy ending and the moment with Rumple was amazing.Let's not forget that clever detective Rogers i was glad that he got the chance to find and safe Henry BTW Zelena's husband is really charming Hope we will see more of Princess Tiana in the upcoming episodes.Man this episode really started to prepare us for the series finalle.BTW love the Hensel and Grethel twist

I'm happy for Zelena that she finally found someone who loves her unconditionally and doesn't have magic either. It's probably really refreshing for her.

I love that she was willing to walk away from him if that was what he wanted. She completely left it up to him to decide. He does seem to be a great guy.

Wow, great episode!

I loved the Wicked Witch's past story with Hansel and Gretal, even back then, she was trying to be good. I liked how she had such sympathy for Hansel and Gretal's father who was blind. And when she realised he was their father, she tried to go back to save them. Though they had already escaped, and revealed to their father who she was. No wonder Nick was after Zelena after she retaliated and burned him when he was Hansel. So that's how he got those scars!

I kinda feel sorry for Hansel. He only wants to kill evil after what happened to him and he believes all witches are evil so he must kill them all. What a shame he failed to kill Mother Gothel, she's the only one who really deserves it. Facilier was manipulating the whole thing! He is a very complex character indeed. Worse trickster than Rumple? Most probably!

I'm glad Zelena had a chance to confront her past as the Wicked Witch more, and learn to really move on but still understand that past will always be part of her like Regina did.

It was so nice to meet Kelly's fiancé at last. I'm so glad it turns out he's actually a really nice guy. And even after she told him about part of her past as Zelena and gave him the chance to walk away he didn't. It's nice he knows. She pretty much can be freely both around him now. Regina telling her to go with him back to San Francisco, as she deserves happiness..their goodbye hug So sweet. I'm glad Margot decides to stay. Loved that Kelly gave Margot her necklace!

Henry. Rogers figuring out about Nick, and finding Henry Nick really did think of Henry as his friend. Such a shame Henry didn't believe the DNA results that shows he is Lucy's father. Glad Henry returned to Jacinda and Lucy and tells them he's not taking the job. Why would he not tell them what happened though?
