Join us as we recap this weeks episode of Once Upon A Time. Did Amy get her answer she wanted about the Mysterious Man (Michael Raymond-James)? Or is she still upset they haven’t talked about him? Make sure you are in the chatroom to tell us what you thought about the episode.
I’ve just had the pleasure of watching the latest episode of Once Upon A Time, ‘Tallahassee’.
This week focussed on Emma et al’s mission to retrieve the compass from the giant at the top of the beanstalk. After some argument, Emma agreed to go up with Hook. Whilst climbing, we see flashbacks to Emma’s life 11 years previously, were she originally fell in love, and she found the car. Henry’s father was also a thief, and he and Emma were stealing around the US. At one point, August catches up to him, and convinces him that the right thing to do for Emma was to let her go, and he agrees after seeing something in a box on the back of August’s motorbike. Emma is arrested, and later in prison receives the car keys to the bug, as well as the news that she’s pregnant.
Meanwhile, Emma and Hook make it to the top of the beanstalk, and work well together to immobilise the giant. They search for the compass, but cannot find it and the giant wakes up, trapping Hook under debris from the ceiling. Emma tricks the giant into a trap, and picks up Jack’s giant-killing sword. He gives her the compass, and then doesn’t kill him. The giant breaks free and shows Emma a quick way down, saying that she could’ve killed him and didn’t. She persuades him to keep Hook locked up for 10 hours to give her a head start, and then reunites with the rest of the gang at the bottom of the beanstalk. Whilst she was gone, Aurora had a nightmare about a red room, and a man looking at her from the opposite corner. The episode ends with Henry waking up from a dream describing the same thing, but a woman opposite him.
It was a great episode, and the camaraderie between Emma and Hook was really good fun. I can’t wait for more answers next week.
Thanks for reading.
