#OnceUponATime S6 Episode 2 "A Bitter Draught" 5 Minutes Recap & Review
Alright, so in last week's episode of Once Upon A Time, we saw a continuation of the "Emma Swan is going to die" storyline, this time seeing Emma in therapy with Archie/Jimmy Cricket (a character I was jubilant to have returned.) In this episode, Emma opened up about the truth of her visions but isn't ready to tell her family yet. Emma is reverting, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. So far, it hasn't made me dislike her character any less, but I would like an explanation.
The untold story of the episode was the Count of Monte Cristo, and I've got to say, I was pleasantly surprised. The character itself reminded me of Graham, as they both seemed like broken hearts. I really wish the plot line continued more than an episode because it would have been interesting, but I did like how Regina's killing him lead to an interesting dynamic between Regina and The Evil Queen.
Finally, let's talk about the Evil Queen and Rumple. I thought that both Lana Parilla and Robert Carlyle did a great job in these scenes, because I was cringing each time they were on screen together, and I'm pretty sure that was the goal.
Overall, great episode. I loved it, and the general direction this season is going in. Stay tuned for next week's recap, and in the meantime, like, comment and follow.
Until next time, Oncers.
