Recap: Once Upon a Time 5×05 “Dreamcatcher”

ONCE UPON A TIME - "Dreamcatcher" - In Camelot, as Mary Margaret and David attempt to retrieve the Dark One dagger, Emma uses a dreamcatcher to look into the past to see how Merlin was transformed into a tree. Together, Emma and Regina figure out the critical ingredient they must acquire to free Merlin, but it's a race against Arthur, who does not want Merlin released.

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.
