Once Upon a Time season 6, episodes 21 and 22, “The Final Battle” Parts 1 and 2:
-Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down
-It was nice to have True Believer-Henry back.
-Let’s talk about that full circle moment with Henry and Emma in the street post-Final Battle.
-Henry really stepped up this episode and proved he shouldn’t have been sidelined as much as he was.
-Rumpel flat out refusing to help Henry save EVERYONE… what?!
-Kristen rants a little about where she thinks we were supposed to be regarding Rumpel and his terrible life.
-One good choice does not negate a lifetime of wickedness.
-We were all a little surprised that Rumpel is one of the few characters sticking around into season 7.
-Was Rumpel talking to himself in his head? Or was Mr. Gold talking to Enchanted Forest Rumpel in the flesh?
-The Black Fairy was a bit of a letdown. How was she the ultimate evil?
-She was a prime example of telling not showing, and in the end we didn’t even get told enough to really understand her motivations.
-What exactly happened in that final battle in the street with Gideon?
-Did the Black Fairy’s residual magic get erased? Is that how Gideon reverted back to baby form?
-There’s a lot of general confusion about what exactly happened in the final battle.
-Getting into what lies ahead.
-How did Henry get from “Happily Ever After” to the Enchanted Forest, and then back to… Seattle?
-Final thoughts on the happy endings for all our departing characters.
-We appreciated the endings for everyone (except for Rumpel), and we really feel like this could have been a series finale… and it kinda, sorta, is.
-A few more thoughts and concerns about the returning cast and characters.
-We were fond of the nostalgia and happiness in this episode as well.
-Regina’s happy ending with the dwarves putting “Queen” on her door was really sweet. We all swooned a bit with them bowing to her.
