Milah: “So you’ve been with my former lover and my son?”

This was a slow moving hour. It wasn’t super captivating, but it wasn’t a snooze fest either. It was just sort of there. The bright side is that Hook has been rescued! This wasn’t dragged out too much, and now the team has a new issue to tackle – getting home.
Rumple, Milah, and Emma working together was amusingly awkward. It reminded everyone just how weirdly everyone is connected. While it seemed like Milah was going to be standoffish towards Emma, it was great that she changed her tune. A love triangle type situation now with petty jealousy would have been annoying.
Milah’s unfinished business was Baelfire. She felt bad for abandoning him because she hated Rumple. Seeing as how Neal has moved on, does that mean that she would have never had a chance to resolve her unfinished business, keeping her in the Underworld forever?
Milah actually had a touching moment with Rumple on whether or not Neal would forgive her. That’s right, Rumple was nice, and it was a little uncomfortable to witness. Of course, it didn’t last. Rumple pushed her into river of lost souls to get what he wanted most – a way out. But hey, he said he didn’t enjoy it.
It’s impossible to feel sorry for Rumple. Hades screwed him, but honestly Rumple shouldn’t have been that stupid to believe that Hades would follow through on his word. Rumple isn’t a sympathetic character, and he’s not even entertaining really. He’s annoying. If we should feel sorry for anyone, it’s Belle.
As soon as the terms of Rumple’s deal with the healer was revealed, it became clear that Belle would be the one to pay the price. Belle is an amazing character, when she isn’t tied to Rumple. She could be so much more than the Beast’s heart, but it seems like that is the main role she has been cast in, which is a shame.
The rules of the Underworld apparently state that if your name is on a headstone, then you are a permanent resident there. Shouldn’t there be some weird loophole to where if you happen to be not dead, then you can’t be trapped there? It’s a little hard how to feel about this new twist, and what kind of jerk is Hades that he only put the women on the headstones?
