My initial reaction is after the jump (total spoiler if you haven’t seen the episode yet):
I did not expect Emma to become a total believer just minutes after the episode started. And I certainly didn’t expect her to lift the curse. I didn’t think that would happen for another couple of years. And then, just as I was wondering where the show could possibly go next — it seemed as if everything had already been resolved — Rumple unleashes the purple fog.
And Regina grins.
And another epic battle begins.
Also, poor Belle. She gets her love, but now, it seems, he wants to become the Dark Lord again.
