While this episode obviously wasn't quite as good as the last three or four, it was very very close! I wasn't Belle's biggest fanprior to this episode, but today she was absolutely amazing! <3 There were so many fantastic developments!
One question I have is - where on earth was Cora when this was taking place? It didn't seem very realistic for her not to play any part in these scenes - especially those on the boat. It was just like Belle will just stroll on in to this random invisible boat and free the prisoner and nobody cares. It was a little weird to be honest.
I was also disappointed at Regina's minimal role in the episode, although there were some interesting developments surrounding her and I think this will be great when we see her next.
This is definitely shaping up to be really interesting, especially with how the episode finish ed up, but please please please more Regina and Cora next week!
