Once Upon a Time Season 4 Report Card: Grade It!

Best Episode 4A - Fall ................ A Tale of Two Sisters, Breaking Glass, White Out
4B - Operation Mongoose ................ Lily, Heart of Gold, Darkness on The Edge of Town Worst Episode 4A - Family Business ................ I didn't really like Shattered Sight, but it wasn't the worst.
4B - Enter the Dragon Best Villain - Isaac, because the writers and actor gave me a reason to root against him. The most satisfying villain comeuppance was when Emma punched Isaac in the face. After Isaac, I'd say Zelena because her wickedness is visceral. (This coming from someone who's least favorite arc was S3B.) I don't understand how anybody became attached to any of the Queens of Darkness--none of them were developed enough for me to get emotionally invested. Ingrid just annoyed me--even her final sacrifice was annoying. Most Disappointing Recurring Character - Robin Hood's Code of Honor is not actually honorable. Robin is so poorly written and I wish he wasn't because he is such a cool addition. Maleficent was boring; Enter the Dragon was the worst episode of S4, even surpassing Family Business. Belle is so poorly and inconsistently written--she always has been and, unfortunately, probably, always will be if they don't connect her with anybody else in Storybrooke aside from Rumple. Most Disappointing New Character - The Chernabog: I really wish it would have come back into play instead of ending up on the long list of dropped story lines. Will wasn't even there enough for me to be disappointed. I liked his cameos in Rocky Road, Smash the Mirror, and Heart of Gold. The poor guy was a punching bag for Hook, a babysitter for Roland, or a boy toy for Belle the rest of the time, though. :'( Most Shocking Twist - I look at spoilers b/c I'm OCD like that ;) (I don't like surprises.) Some shocking things were: Cruella De Vil's story, HE, and demise; Belle kicking Rumple to the curb; The Apprentice's death; Zelena/ Robin Hood child; etc. Worst Twist - I don't want the Apprentice to be gone. The more I think about it, the more I like (and maybe "like" isn't the right word) the Zelena/ Hood baby because there is so much character building and thematic potential so long as it's handled properly from here on out. Best New Trend - Emma bringing down her walls/ the redemption of Hook and Regina (and I'd never thought I'd say that with regards to Regina). Best Kiss - I think the Snow and Charming one at the end of Shattered Sight was memorable in that it capped off the "everything is alright in the world" mood of the scene. I really like how often chaste Emma and Hook's relationship is--highlighted is why they love each other (because they trust, genuinely like, sacrifice for each other, & etc.) over any physical aspect. I like the moment between Emma and Hook at the end of Breaking Glass--the affection felt very natural. Best Advice - The Apprentice to Henry Op Mongoose Part 2:
"The truth is what you must write. I hope that you can resist the temptation of the quill. The power to change reality is only outweighed by the cost."
It speaks to the power and potential danger of the expression of ideas. The truth will always win in the end, but that doesn't give us permission to spread deceptions.

Has anybody here ever seen Tales from the Crypt's Demon Knight ? the whole thing involving the darkness totally reminded me of a scene from that movie when Brayker describes what is going on as follows "In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth..And the Earth was a formless void, and darkness covered the face of the deep. But the darkness wasn't empty. It was full of creatures, full of demons. And they had seven keys, formed into a circle that focused the power of the cosmos into their hands, until God stepped forth and said, "let there be light." And there was light." Aside from the Seven Keys, I think the show should really finally introduce God for season 11....I just think God would ultimately have to be the one to come back and bring the light to contend with the darkness.It seems like its a task that will finally be above the Winchesters alone. man I couldn't help but wish that during the conversation between Dean and death, death was going to say something like Lucifer is the key to the mark being removed and he would have to be removed from that stupid cage he's been locked up in since the season 4 finale....I mean really,why is Lucifer still locked in that stupid cage? I'm all for him getting out of that crap already. Oh and Death was and always is a scene stealer!!.I absolutely refuse to believe that he is dead,I mean really how can you kill death ? I will riot if they just killed off my favorite character lol.

I hope Chuck/God will be back, as well as Lucifer, Gabriel, Michael/Adam.. they are the ones that beat back the Darkness in the first place. The other Archangel, Raphael is dead (or is he?), but I bet there is something in the demon tablet that Metatron has about this. This may be another big bad that will have everyone battling together against it (Sam, Dean, Cas and Crowley). I think it also sets it up for some serious help from heaven.. ie, Bobby, Charlie, Kevin, maybe even John and Mary.. and what of the death of Death? That definitely can't be good..lol.. Season 11, bring it on...

I will really hate it if they make Metatron end up having the solution to combat the darkness because he has the demon tablet..I'm almost certain that they will play into the fact that he knew ahead of time that if the Mark of Cain was removed it would release this darkness and the answer lies within that stupid tablet that he possesses and next season will feature more of that slimy bastard.

I'm so shocked that Lowell was killed. I hope it's not permanent because everyone loved him and Liv together! Bring Lowell back!!! The fans love Liv and Lowell together!

The ep where they showed all the cgi and green screen ruined it for me. I can't get past it. Shocked that it was renewed. Great premise from the beginning but....I'm over it, sadly.

Honestly, I really don't care about Erin's storyline. I think it's because I feel like the whole show always revolves around Erin, Voight ( who I don't mind), and Haldsted. Next season, I hope to see more of the characters have better storylines or at least know more about them. I feel like Mouse is underused, along with Atwater.

Dear Alice: Dean was evil for only 3 episodes. He has not been evil for the last 2 seasons. I really wish these so-called experts would at least recognize the basic flaw of S10: it was promoted as the Year of the Deanmon, but we didn't get a year, we got 3 darn episodes. Dean's struggle against the MoC was diluted by stupid filler episodes, sloppy continuity and just plain bad writing. That 'will he or won't he' go dark arc was awful, despite Jensen's best efforts. He usually spins gold out of the crap that's written for him, but not this time. The show should have concentrated on him and his struggle, and it didn't. I could have done without claire and Crowley's mommy's issues.
