There were positives and negatives to this episode. The biggest positive was right at the end as we got another great cliffhanger as usual, which will hopfeully lead to some interesting episodes in the coming weeks!
Really getting bored of Dr Whale though. His storylines - both past and present - are so boring and those black and white scenes are driving me to sleep. It's not the type of sceene I want to see at 3am in the morning. I just don't understand why it is so grey with those scenes. Doesn't that world have colour or something lol. Makes no sense.
And Dr Whale in the present was just as bad. The story of the entire episode was surrounding Whale who is a character who appears a couple times a season at most. Seems like a waste to me.
On the definite positives - great developments with Rumpel and with Regina and Cora as well. It will be interesting to see how this plays out, and I really look forward to the next one!
