Merlin get’s his heart broken, get’s turned into a tree then get’s released. Henry plans a date, get’s his heart broken, saves the day two more times then get’s his heart broken again. Merida tries to find proper motivation to whip Rumple into shape, Regina witnesses more than one heartbreak and has a heart-to-heart with Miss Swan. It’s a rollercoaster of a ride and even though the episode is named “Dreamcatcher” i think a more appropriate title is “Heartbreaker” because there are plenty to go around.

ONCE UPON A TIME – “The Broken Kingdom” –  (ABC/Jack Rowand)

Well it’s a brand new day and we’re back once again with our friends from Storybrooke, the Enchanted Forest, I mean Camelot. Arthur is in the running to take over the position of obsessive Mad Hatter level crazy, Emma nearly wipes out hook with a yellow bolt of magic, and Snow and Charming go head-to-head Season 1 level argument. What we aren’t seeing is very much of Regina part in saving Emma nor are we seeing much of Emma’s transition into the Dark One, you know the most evil being known to man. At most we’re starting to get a little naughty but still nothing on Rumple’s level of Dark One and I for one am a little disappointed.

Maybe in the coming episodes we’ll start to see Emma take the reigns of how a person with unspeakable power and anger rules with an iron fist but at this point by not seeing Emma making much noise as the Dark One it makes it hard for me to worry about her family and friends being able to bring her back to the Emma they know and love. I need to see another level of Emma like we did last season during the road trip with Regina when Emma pulled a gun on Lily. We were taken to the edge of will she or won’t she pull that trigger until Regina pulled Emma back reminding her of who she is and that had the audience on the edge of our seats.

After a failed attempt to pull Excalibur from the stone Emma embarks on a new plan to snuff out the light. She pays the dwarves a little visit to borrow an ax expecting it will break the sword free of its stone encasement. But this is magic, dark magic and even though Emma is new to the Dark One game shouldn’t she know that an ax used by the dwarves can’t stand up to dark magic? Apparently not because she tries and fails to make a dent in that giant rock.
