Sorcerer’s Apprentice: “You are the Author, as such you should only use the quill only to record the stories, not to create them.”
Henry: “I don’t care about the stupid stories anymore. I sick of sitting on the sidelines. I want to be a hero. I want to help my mom even if it means helping Cruella.”

The reunion of Liam and Killian could have been a great scene full of love and two brothers catching up. Instead, we saw Killian turn into this man who believes that his brother can do no wrong. It was a little much, and to make matters worse, Liam gladly stepped into the role as hero.
Liam loved it and fed off of Killian’s praise. He seemed to carry himself with pretentious swagger. All of this made Liam a hard guy to sympathize with. Everything he said felt so fake and grandiose. There wasn’t anything about him that seemed genuine.
Instead of getting a real relationship between brothers, we got what felt like caricatures. It was hard to really see why Killian idolized his brother so much. His speech on the ship to the crew right as Liam lead them to their death was cringe worthy. It didn’t feel like the Killian we knew. He was a different person.
If we were to believe that Liam deserved this praise, then we needed to see it. It was even difficult to be happy for him when he moved on because he still felt so fake. We should have had a flashback showing how close the brothers were. This even could have happened in the Underworld. Instead, we focused on Liam’s negative reaction to Emma and vice versa.
There was just too much going on. We had Killian hero-worshipping his brother, Liam and Emma not liking the other one, and then we had to prove that Liam was shady. Every happened so quickly and predictably. What did you think of the Jones brothers’ reunion?
Bringing back the book was a nice touch, and it reminded everyone of something that held such great importance to season one and to Henry. The book brought back the nostalgia, and, personally, the longing for earlier seasons of the show. It’s still a little difficult to understand what Henry is going to do with the quill, but it’s nice to see him using his Author skills.
