Disappointed with the Helena flashback element of this episode.
1. The most obvious and ridiculous flaw being the bleached hair episode. So her hair becomes permanently bleached-blonde from an experience or few with the bucket treatment? C'mon. Or do they mean to suggest that Helena liked the look so much that she has dyed her hair on a regular basis ever since, because, you know, she cares so much about her appearance?
2. After the horrible descriptions in earlier seasons about her ongoing, long-term brutal orphanage treatment, she looked like a rather cutely mischievous, clean & healthy looking child being caught observing the nun after stealing and gorging herself on candy.
Since this was the end of her run with the supposedly long-term brutal orphanage environment, as Tomas was taking her away right after this last incident, I had been lead to always imagine her as a much less healthy looking and unsocialized child than how she was portrayed in these scenes.
Left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth for this episode.
Can't believe there's only one episode left. Seems like they would need a 90 to 120 minute finale, not just an hour.
