The V.R.O. On Air Recap airs each Monday at 9pm EST here is our recap for ‘Queen Of Hearts’
I’ve just had the pleasure of watching the latest episode of Once Upon A Time, ‘Queen Of Hearts’.
In a flashback to before the Queen enacted the curse, Regina sends Hook to Wonderland to bring her mother back, who is now the Queen of Hearts, and have her killed; When Hook brings her back Regina grieves saying that since love is a weakness she couldn’t bring what she loves to the new land. With Cora still alive, she and Hook save a piece of land to stay on until the curse is broken, the same piece Aurora’s kingdom was on.
Regina and Mr. Gold agree that they should destroy anyone who comes through the portal, even if it’s Emma and Snow White. Ruby and Leroy get angry when they find that Regina and Mr. Gold took the diamonds from the mines, so Henry and Ruby set off to stop them from destroying Emma and Mary Margaret. In a fight to go through the portal, Mulan gets Aurora’s heart back; While Cora sets to take Snow’s heart, only for Emma to step in front of her. When Cora attempts to take Emma’s heart, she learns that love isn’t weakness, it’s strength; Regina stops the portal from destroying just in time for Emma and Snow to come through it, and Snow breaks Prince Charmings’ curse.
Mulan and Aurora set off to find Phillip, while Cora and Hook arrive in Storybrooke after the regenerative waters get the bean to grow again.
It was another brilliant episode for the show, making superb use of the characters available. Captain Hook is quickly becoming one of my favourites, and the way they’re developing Cora and Regina (and the complicated relationship between them) is superb. I can’t wait for the next episode in the new year.
Thanks for reading.
