Normally each episode will focus on a character’s story both in Fairytale Land as well as Storybrooke. But normally we also get to see what else is happening in and around each place as well. A sort of white noise if you will. There wasn’t much of that going on in this latest episode, aside from a bit with Regina. Instead we finally find out who August really is, what he actually did with the book when it was in his possession and as a bonus, we get to see Regina taken down a couple of pegs.
I’m not exactly sure where things will end, but apparently the finale is supposed to have an “epic” battle. If that’s the case then they’ve got some ground to cover with Emma especially after this week. There are only two episodes left and I’m sure the finale will end with a cliffhanger. If that’s the case then I really hope we’ll see a season two. I don’t think ABC has said anything officially either way, but I imagine they will have some pretty pissed off fans if they cancel it. I have to admit, I’d be one of them because I really really really want to see Regina get her just dues.
