4 December 2012 | by (eg) – See all my reviews

good episode this week that all what we can say . everybody is back now and i think that was the last episode for " mulan and aurora " I liked seeing hook on his ship at the end My favorite moment was the fact the show finally gave us what we wanted...a happy ending with a future possibilities!

and also loved how cora couldn't get emma's heart and then emma defeated her and got back to henry thanks to regina's help i think that regina will be the evil again by her mother cora and we also knows that cora needs to be with her daughter !!, it was really a good winter season finale can't wait for the return
