Abundant OTA television is what makes this country different from all others. Lets keep it this way. If you like Wi-Fi so much, OTA fits right in. After all, it is wireless.

The whole Frozen plot last season really hurt the show. I'm still trying to get the taste out of my mouth. As Frank Zappa once sang, don't eat the yellow snow.

She really made last season. I just wish they would get rid if Miss rolly-polley Snow White. Did she get fat.
Madder is a great actress, and easy on the eyes, but that isn't enough to save this show at the moment. I almost never look at sneak peeks for shows, since I actually enjoy being surprised. However, since I am already putting in work to finish this season, I went ahead and watched the sneaks for the next episode. It looks like things are not going to be getting any better,especially in regards to both the Cruella and Maleficent characters. I may just wait until the season is over and binge watch the finale before I cut the cord on watching the show entirely.

I enjoyed this weeks season finale episode. It was fun to see the role reversal of the characters. The one person I've never really cared for (during all seasons) is Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White. I can't put my finger on the reason. But, she (IMO) just never seemed to "fit" this show. All the rest of the "main" characters (Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parilla, Robert Carlyle, Josh Dallas) I thought have done good work. I've also been impressed with all the SFX/CGI that has been used on the show. Anyway--just my $.02.

So we now know that the Darkness is the primary evil in all the realms. It makes me cringe thinking that Peter Pan could 'kill' the Dark One when we see the Darkness swirl around Emma like that. It looks so beyond anyone and anything.

So Merlin is the most powerful sorcerer?

My youngest and her friends couldn't get enough of the Frozen plot. They were skype-ing while it was on every week. The kids the show is for loved it.

To be fair... the darkness is powerful... but the darkness bound to a human (Dark One) was limited and controllable. That dagger was its curse/trap basically along with being chained to a human soul... as evil as you ever thought the Dark One was, unfettered it is meant to be worse.

So, Merlin couldn't kill it... but could trap/weaken it. It would be nice, though, if Merlin told someone besides his apprentice... I mean, it would sure help folk to know that the Dark One was better than letting the darkness out!

Meanwhile... the dagger kills the Dark One (as shown in Rumple killing his predecessor) but transfers the curse to that new person... so anyone killing the Dark One needed the dagger and would then be similarly cursed. What that doesn't explain, though, is what happened when Rumple killed himself with the dagger. Where did the darkness go then? We know Rumple came back... but before that, was the darkness permanently trapped?

Me do not have signature.
Where I am when I'm not here!

Think of it like a live Disney show attraction so it's no wonder it was so popular with those fans. It was more off putting to the OuaT fans because they were basically sidelined for the Frozen characters.
