Killian: “There’s never been a moment where I didn’t believe in you, where I didn’t trust you, but you clearly don’t believe in my anymore. So how am I supposed to fight this?”
“Broken Heart” is the November 29 episode of “Once Upon a Time.” This article contains spoilers —every article has a price. The “Once Upon a Time” winter finale airs next Sunday night at 7 p.m. CT on ABC.
Damn, Killian is a pretty evil Dark One, even his hair went all evil and emo. You know things are bad when someone’s hair turns evil. It made sense that Killian was a more dangerous Dark One than Emma. She’s the savior. She doesn’t have a lot of darkness in her, but Killian had plenty of darkness in him long before he became the Dark One.
As weird as it sounds, it’s still hard to figure out what kind of Dark One Killian is. The only apparent differences are that he hates Emma for what she did to him, which is honestly a natural reaction to being betrayed like that and not all indicative of darkness, and his Crocodile killing vendetta is back on. Killian’s quest for revenge isn’t all that new.
So what’s different? He has magic, okay that’s new. Other than that, Killian seems like he did when we first met him, and while Hook was dark, he can’t have been as dark as a Dark One. There needs to be something more.
Maybe what makes him dangerous as a Dark One is that he doesn’t care about anyone else. He does what he wants no matter what. Killian seemed perfectly okay with allowing the Dark Ones in his head do whatever they want as long as he got what he wanted.
Henry’s reasoning for not trusting Emma actually made sense, and he was super mature for a kid. Sure, Emma did a horrible thing and betrayed him when she took Violet’s heart, but that’s not what Henry is upset about. Okay, so he has to be a little upset with Emma over that otherwise he’s not human.
However, Henry’s main issue with Emma was that she tried to do things on her own, without backup. That is not the Operation Cobra way. It was so great to see them find each other and their relationship again. Emma took a step in the right direction by turning to Henry for help, and he took a step towards forgiving Emma by taking off the magical cuff using squid ink. On another note, Rumple really needs to have a more secure safe.
Normally, Rumbelle is boring, but there was actually a shining moment tonight. Belle didn’t get back together with Rumple. For once, she actually thought about herself and her heart. Good for you, Belle. Go be interesting and do things that have absolutely no connection to Rumple. Do you think Belle made the right decision?
What did you think of the episode? Anyone else thinking Emma might end up killing Killian and then travelling to the underworld to bring him back? Leave your thoughts and theories in a comment below.
