Emma and Hook’s scene at Granny’s was a moment I’ve always wanted for her character: a moment of happiness with someone else but also happiness with her true self. Her enthusiastic “Boom!” was the cutest thing in an episode that featured Roland Hood, which is no small accomplishment. Emma gave him hot cocoa with cinnamon (the Charming family drink of choice) because sharing a drink has always been his way of reaching out to her. Emma’s laughter when she took his hook was so bright, and it reminded me that this woman doesn’t often have many reasons to laugh. But she finally seems to feel ready to laugh with him, to be happy with him (which is why it’s so sad that he can’t find that same happiness with her after Zelena’s curse). That’s why his apology after getting short with her was so important. Emma needed to know that he wasn’t being short just to hurt her, and I was happy that she wasn’t backing down from the new level of intimacy between them just because he wasn’t acting like himself. She wasn’t going to put her walls back up because he was acting strangely; she was actively choosing to be open with him in the hopes of getting him to be open with her. (I wonder what would have happened had Belle not interrupted them.) In one scene, we were given the kind of beautiful character development I’ve been hoping for as an Emma Swan fan for a long time.

It’s the same exact necklace but white. Obviously they are connected,already knew that, but now I’m super curious and more stumped to find out how. I wish we had a still of the witch of the north to see if she had one. It has to have something to do with the four witches.

First off, can we get a round of applause for the costume department showcasing the fabulous cleavage of all the lovely ladies of OUAT? Second, if Zelena is Wicked Witch of the West, does that make Regina the East? Third, people keep talking about how JMo and the actress who plays Glinda look “exactly alike”… Personally, I don’t see that, but could Emma still be Good Witch of the South?

#i’m still confused about their plot line js js

Not a plot line. A plot hole.

These two episodes explain several things. All the things it explains are in bold and my reasoning is underneath.

It explains why Cora signed the contract.

Cora is, basically, bitch-slapping Rumple as she knows the truth. Zelena is gone and Rumple can’t, as far as she knows,  get her first born - he may know of Zelena, but he cannot get to Oz; if he could, there’d be no need to send Jefferson to get the Slippers! - so she wins on all fronts: she gets power and prestige and successfully brokers with the Dark One with no ill consequences.

For Rumple, it was a case of getting what he wanted - Bae - and putting everyone into a position for him to use.

He choose Regina as Zelena, to him, was petty, unable to put her envy aside and would not do what he wanted - she would solely target Regina, as she does in Storybrooke. She goes off on a whim, turns green, turns Walsh into a monkey and tried to kill Regina… everything Rumple wanted to avoid as it was his plan to get Baelfire, not Regina.

Regina, on the other hand, was always plotting on one cause: Snow White’s suffering. The Dark Curse would give her that and give Rumple what he wanted. Thus, for Rumple, the choice was simple: drop cazy psycho bitch Zelena and apprentice Regina - he’d waited 300 years already, so another few years while Regina learns is nothing as long as his plan worked.

As for the stuff with Eva tripping Cora.

Eva knows who she is and it has a double meaning: it was a warning to keep her away from Leopold again as he and Eva are presumably not married - there’s eight years between Regina and Snow and the former is only just born at the end of The Miller’s Daughter - and is also Eva gloating and saying “I won - go home, bitch!”

That’s also why Cora is so angry at apologising to Eva - Eva’s already fucked up her prospects once and could have done so again by embarrassing Cora there.

It explains why Cora poisoned Eva.

Cora would have had Leopold but Eva fucked it up. With Eva dead and Snow having been saved from the bolting horse that Cora caused, there would be nothing in the way of Regina becoming Queen.

Then, Snow revealed Daniel’s part in the problem; no matter - death to the Stable Boy who could be replaced and was collateral damage.

With Daniel dead there was nothing - Nadda, zilch, el zippo! - in the way of Regina’s rise to power and Cora’s rise with her.

And, indirectly, it all worked; Regina became Queen and had everything Cora wanted… and thanks to Regina, Cora became Queen of Wonderland and true royalty herself.

See? It all makes sense.

^^^this^^^

Eva’s presence seems to also be what spurs Cora into stealing the dress and mask in order to make it to the ball. She’s clearly determined to become a princess at the least, and seeing Eva again (and having Eva compound her misery) just puts a sharper edge on her ambition. Adam and Eddy have also confirmed that when Leopold meets Regina and Cora in The Stable Boy, he DOES recognize who he was speaking with. We only have 7 confirmed kingdoms and their attendant royals—The White Kingdom (Leopold, Snow, and Eva/Regina), The Northern Kingdom (Princess Eva and her parents), The Golden Kingdom (Midas, Abigail, and Frederick), The Rose Kingdom (Princess Aurora, her parents, and Prince Phillip), The Sea Kingdom (Prince Eric, his parents, and Ariel), The Poor Kingdom (Prince Henry, his parents, and Cora), and The Insolvent Kingdom (Prince James and King George)—which is a relatively small number if you compare it to say Medieval and Renaissance Europe. These families would have intermarried certainly, but they also would have brokered treaties and alliances; odds are high that Cora’s bid to become princess was well-known, and the king’s harshness with her (and constantly reminding her of her place) stems from a knowledge of her past. He knew that she was a gold-digger because she had acquired a reputation.
