I enjoyed this episode. I like it when everyone works as a team to defeat the villain. We haven't seen much of that this season, but glad to see that is what is happening now.

From the promo pics, we didn't see Regina in the red cape, Granny, Blue, or Grumpy though. I wonder if that scene was cut or it's in the next episode.

Loved this episode!

Felt bad for Rumple because he just wants to get back to Belle and his worst self
is making it hard for him

Love the cameos of Ariel, Cruella, and Peter Pan.

Alice and Robyn going to Storybrooke.

I enjoyed the episode and really want to see the next one now...

I loved that we got to see Hook and Rumple working as a team, even after Rogers getting his memories back.

I love that Alice and Robin are coming to the rescue, but isn't them coming into Storybrooke going to mess up the timeline?

Wish Henry really needs to see his grandparents and mother again...

I loved the throw away line about the timelines making someone's head spin. Great to see the Apprentice and Ariel again. Not bothered about Cruella.
You just need to hold on to hope.

What an amazing first part it was...There is so much to comment but also cannot wait to see the finale.Still i didn't expect Henry to act like that (Rumple was right that Henry is giving to emotions) and sadly that turns out agains them.So happy to see Ariel,Cruella and Peter Pan From the promo for this episode i tough we will see now the Charming but apperanly we will see the heroes in the finale.And i am glad that Alice and Robin will come to help.
Man when Regina interrupted Weaver and Rumple man i tough Weaver will finally get rid of the dagger.But also i didn't expected Wish Henry to do like this but after Regina killing the wish Charming it it was no wonder...Still i wished to see Emma here
I loved the scene where they all celebrated the breaking of the curse and still heartbreaking that Alice and Hook are seprated..Bow down to Adam and Eddy i really get the feel that we are previewing the first 6 season...Can't wait to see the epic finalle

Good episode.

Even though I normally like the classic characters coming back(sorry, other than Drizella I don’t care about the Season 7 characters) I felt the cameos were awkward and meaningless. But it was a good lead up to finale.

I think maybe next episode. I didn't remember seeing Shady Blue either in 7x21.

Can't believe it's almost over! TT_TT

Great episode! Glad to see Ariel back (although it would actually be the first time, considering it's Wish Realm Ariel) and looking foreward to see Emma, David and Snow again

I didn't see the promo pics before, but is it wrong to assume they're Wish Realm doppelgangers? Shouldn't Granny and Grumpy be like even older?

Anyway, I'm not really a fan of these timelines. There's a lot of plot holes and unexplained things so I'll try not to think about it

It’s amusing seeing someone else using the author’s powers to take away Rumple’s happy ending, when he only tried doing the exact some thing to everyone else before.

What goes around comes around.

I thought the series finale would include the two episodes together, but alas, got to wait another week. On Netflix anyway! On the upside, that means it'll last just that little bit longer!

Me too, that was great, especially coming from wish Apprentice. It's so true though.

Though the timelines didn't confuse me all that much, until they added the wish realm. That just made things more complicated than it needed to be. And this season has really added such huge curveball with the timeline that it has now made my head spin.

So, Wish Rumple's plan all along, wasn't to have other Rumple's dagger, it was to weave a clever plan to make Henry go to the Apprentice and get the author's pen, as a way to save Lucy and Ella, but actually to get wish Henry to write his happy ending. I did not see that coming, though maybe I should have. So he writes that the guardian no longer has the power. I liked how Alice knew that meant her father and others were in trouble in the wish realm.

Tiana/Sabine confused as to who she is reminds me of the S2 episode We Are Both, where everyone was figuring out who they were, but I'm sure she will find she can also be both.

Loved seeing Cruella and Ariel back, even if they were just they're wish counterparts, it was still a great way to include them.

Alice and Robyn going to Storybrooke to get help! That's awesome. So excited to see Snow and David again, and Emma too I hope!

I've gone brain dead. There's so much more I want to say but I can't transfer words from my head to type. I watched the Lucifer S3 finale only a couple hours earlier, and had to type so many feels with that I literally have zero energy left for more.

I enjoyed the episode. Good to see Ariel, Cruella and Peter Pan again even if they are the wish realm ones.

Can't believe it's all nearly over.
