I guess it'd be fair to argue that this episode was not as captivating, being centered around a character who we have never even met befreo, and who we may or may not ever see again, but there were some really interesting developments elsewhere!
Such great scenes in the house with Emma and Mary Margaret trying to escape! The Queen was as wicked as usual in the other world! Can't believe her plan to have two go in to the hat and have two come out. That's all I'll say on that note. ;)
I thought the ending was incredible! I can't believe what Mr Gold's up to! Is he playing both sides? Is he just playing Emma? He's a slippery character, that's for sure!
Can't wait to see how this all develops! OUaT continues to impress!!! :)
