Very anxious for tonight’s episode, based on the previews it looks like we’re in for an emotional roller coaster.

Thoughts on tonight.

1. Moe is an arse. Really? You would leave your daughter under an eternal sleeping curse rather than she be with a man you don't like?

2. All I could think about while Hades and Zelena were on the bridge is why they were standing in the rain with a baby and why was it raining in some places, but not others.

3. Zeus could reward Killian, but not Robin?

4. Is the Charming/Evil Queen feud starting up again?

5. The Crystal to awaken Belle? I want TLK, dang it.

6. Rumple and Hades? Rumple Rumple Rumple, what would Belle say? After that phone call you deserve a head slap. But you are so sexy when you are so bad.

Wow, that was so sad! RH’s death was a bit dark for OUAT, so I’m holding out hope for a decent sendoff next week!!! That was sweet and fitting that Zelena named their baby “Robin”. Nice to see Arthur redeem himself, he will be the new Lord of the Underworld and do right by everyone down there. Underwhelmed by Zeus, got myself too excited by hoping for a ridiculously ripped, angry guy shooting lightning bolts everywhere LOL

^Agreed on all these points.

Also, when Zeus showed up I immediately thought, “Oh, maybe this will be Hermes” (both because in Greek mythology Hermes is the guide of souls and the actor looks very young, but...nope, guess it was zeus ). I want more of the gods!

As soon as I saw that OUAT was ACTUALLY giving Robin substantial screen time in the beginning, I feared he was a goner. While it’s great to see Zelena and Regina together, Robin did NOT deserve to die, especially being so underused.

The Captain Swan reunion was BEAUTIFUL

Also enjoyed the unexpected Hook/Arthur bromance(but someone needs to help poor Guinevere ASAP)

If they would just permanently cut the flashbacks, we could have great episodes like this one where every character had a chance to shine all the time.

Screw this damn show, and screw A&E.

I'm hoping next season we'll be rid of the flashbacks. These last two episodes have been brilliant emotional rollercoasters full of excellent writing and powerful acting.

I love Rumple at his most evil and his 'You're in MY kingdom now' made me cackle with glee. I want him to be evil forever. And I want him to be deliciously evil with Cruella, the queen of unrepentant sass.

Loved the Hook and Arthur teamup so much. The Hook/Emma reunion was beautiful and I'm looking forward to Regina going all Evil Queen and pulling herself back from it with the love of her friends and family.

Even David and Snow got moments with Emma that were beautiful.

I feel - nothing, sadly, about Robin dying. He was so underused, that I just didn't connect with him or care about him as a character.

Zeus couldn't bring Robin back because his soul literally disintegrated right in front of Regina. Hook's didn't.

I agree that the show should stop with the flashbacks. Last week and this weeks episodes were really balanced and didn't seem rushed.

I have not been a fan of Robin for sometime. I really liked the character and his potential and Outlaw Queen during season 3. I didn't like the way they went with him during season 4 and he was underused this season. I feel like he was just a prop for Regina and Zelena it's a shame because I really like Sean and am sad to see him leave.

Not really looking for Regina going back to being the Evil Queen, from the previews.
