He was good, but overall... dunno... the episode dragged a lot... basically it was a lot of exposition to lay down for the finale and the end of the episode was ruined by the promo making it totally anti-climatic.
I agree. I'm usually like "OMG" every episode. (I'm easily amused, but this episode just seemed like one giant set-up for the finale. I didn't really recall anything extremely important that couldn't be explained in just a few minutes instead of a full hour.
Have'nt we all missed a very important part of that last episode? How the hell is Jefferson alive? Did he not fall through the hat after all? Is he hiding the magic hat from Regina? What happened there?
I'm mad... we needed more Gold/Belle action. I mean, it was perfect when she didn't know who he was, so heartbreaking, but when she remember... that's all we got? I know they didn't have a lot of time to work with, but still... :( Oh well, this should be really interesting for next season...
