Great series...horrible season finale
13 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, Emma is hands down the worst character on the show. She's stubborn to the point that it's tedious to watch her. She's not very smart and doesn't use her head. Regina on the other hand is stubborn herself but much more likable fun to watch. Having Emma screw her over to try and steer her back in to being a villain is a really cheap move. The episode revolved around time travel which is a lazy, over used plot device. Usually a TV show using time travel is a clear sign of the show jumping the shark. It does seem as if the writers of this show are out of ideas.

The final scene showed that Ella from Frozen would be in the next season. So here's they are trying to keep people interested in this series by capitalizing on Frozen's popularity. The imagination that once fueled this show has run out of gas and these two episodes illustrate that clearly. When Emma took Marian out of the cell(we ALL knew it was Marian, btw...no big surprise)it was exasperating. How many times did Hook just tell her not to change anything? She's a selfish idiot who always puts her self first and makes any bad situation worse at every turn, yet she's the hero? The writers need to get creative instead of relying on tried and true plot devices and gimmicks.
