Once Upon A Time, S5E20: “Firebird”

Think of a magical thought. Any evil little thought.
Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb?  Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.
Spoiler Thoughts:
  • I find it hard to think that Hades can’t just zap Zelena back from wherever she is. 
  • So far, Hades has not been making out too bad with these deals. 
  • Hey, it’s a “Heroes Reborn” reunion!
  • Nice mirror to Emma’s bail bondsman intro the first episode. 
  • I feel like ripping up the contract is not legally binding. 
  • So I really like this scene. In the first place, I think Robbie Kay does a great job as Evil!Pan!
  • In the second place, everyone here acts consistently with their characters. Emma keeps the spirit of her bargains, Rumple rarely does. 
  • Not sure why Pan didn’t take Zelena with him when he poofed out, but oh well. 
  • I always think it’s hilarious that those jelly hearts split in half like “click.”
  • Oh quick, snap ’em back together again and stick it back in. 
  • How was Peter Pan going to get back alive? Isn’t his body rotting somewhere?
  • I can’t tell whether this is Emma before or after Neal and Henry.
  • This seems like a pretty sketchy plan from Hades. 
  • Papa not so happy with baby Rumple. 
  • Why can’t Rumple just sling Belle over his shoulder and take off? Or poof her over there? Why does he even need a box?
  • I feel like people transport sleeping people normally without Pandora’s Box. 
  • Robin is feeling the consequences of having spent this whole arc babysitting out in the woods. 
  • Regina is becoming a little credulous in virtue. 
  • Emma was kind of a brat. 
  • Poor Stealthy. 
  • I don’t get how you can just become mayor or Ruler of the Underworld just by saying so. 
  • I’m not a lawyer, but I don’t think that’s how elected officials happen. 
  • Maybe if the lame denizens of Storybrooke ever lifted a finger to help themselves against every evil person who walks over and says they’re in charge, their lives wouldn’t be as crappy as they usually are. 
  • This doesn’t seem like the most strenuous test of true love ever. 
  • That was not the best fire effect this show has ever done. 
  • Colin should maybe work a little on his “burning man” acting.
  • Turned out someone can’t turn good that fast. 
  • Zelina, still not the sharpest stick in the drawer. 
  • Good going, Emma. 
  • Killian, you don’t let go, you are going to keep her hand with you in the Underworld. 
  • I hope this girl gave Emma a discount. 
  • So what was the point of the whole flashback? To show that Emma got some poor woman killed and learned the wrong lesson from it?
  • If Emma and Regina combined can reverse Hades’ spells, you’d think this adventure would have taken less time than it did. 
  • Nooo! Robbie!
  • If Rumple could distract him long enough to put Robin’s heart back and get a wineskin and fill it with lost soul water, you’d think he could have just skipped the Robin part altogether. 
  • Not sure this is how Pandora’s Box historically works. 
  • Rumple walking over and stepping through the portal without so much as a look back is the most perfect example of someone NGAF ever. 
  • Clock stopped.  Glad they left and took all the hope with them, abandoning everyone to Cruella for Eternity.
