I do have to say I'm glad the OUAT writers are not going for monolithic obsessive anti-magic group story line ('cause, SFF cliche). Instead, there is a magical creature behind what is probably an earnestly obsessive anti-magic group, stirring machinations, we know not what. AND that creature is Peter Pan, who is not Baelfire, nor his son, but knew about Henry's existence 100 years before the kid was born.... That is not what I was expecting.
Which OUAT seems to deliver, rather predictably.
Regina, Hook, and Rumplestiltskin all suddenly behaving themselves and feeling remorse and/or being all heroic was a bit of a stretch. An outside threat will often incite such changes, but there was nothing so pressing that any of those three *had* to be Good Guys overnight. I expect the road to redemption will be more rocky than just that.
Or maybe the writers are just trading up for a New Bad Guy? I guess Peter Pan wrote the version of his story we know and love himself for the PR?
And in conclusion, I am glad there is Moar Baelfire stories to come. Also, Mulan/Aurora/Philip were great to see again.
