Once Upon A Time "A Curious Thing" Episode Review

*Review contains spoilers, so read at your own risk!*

Well, this was a very informative episode. One I've been waiting for, actually. Because we now know the info on why the curse was cast! It was actually Mary-Margaret's brilliant idea (saying this somewhat sarcastically) to cast the spell again. But Zelena finds out and decides to put her own twist on things by adding a forgetting curse! I believe they wanted to cast the curse because it would bring them all back home, and I think it had something to do with getting rid of Zelena. 

It was too funny that Regina really hated Robin in the year before. Was it because she remembered that he was her one true love and that she didn't want to admit it or did he just truly irritate her? Either way, it was fun to watch. :) 

Who is Mary-Margaret gonna sacrifice for the curse? David! But how is that possible since clearly he didn't die? Well, that was also cleared up as well. I felt bad for Regina because you could tell she did not want to do this at all. Boy has she changed, right? Mary-Margaret decides to rip her heart in half (literally) and give one half to David and it actually worked! 

Now comes the best part of all and one where I can't wait to say that I was right all along! The minute Emma got back her memories and they were trying to figure out how to get Henry's back, I knew that if they could just find the storybook, that would solve all their problems because that's what made him realize the stories were real to begin with and I was right! I am hardly ever right when it comes to this kind of stuff, so this was awesome for me! :) But it took some doing on trying to find the book to begin with and how Mary-Margaret was the one who ended up finding it, is still a mystery to me. Though, they did explain it, I just didn't understand it. Long story short, they find the book, give it to Henry and he remembers! But not before flying monkeys attack him and Hook who's trying to get Henry out alive. Poor kid was so confused and was wondering what those horrible things were. Zelena takes Henry and almost kills him! But thanks to Emma learning her magic, she was able to get them apart. It was actually Regina who ended up breaking the curse! I was thrilled by that news! I don't know why, but it was cool having something awesome like that happen to a once evil villain. Besides Henry finally getting his memories back, I loved it when he found out who his mom was dating. His reaction was just awesome! I have really missed the old Henry, but boy, this kid is a great actor! All the casting for the show has been great. I've been really impressed by it.

Their happy moment isn't too long, when Mary-Margaret goes into labor and now Emma is mad at Hook because Zelena told them all about the curse and Emma is upset that he didn't tell her and so on and so on. :) Come on, he was just protecting them. What's wrong there? He was trying his hardest to get Henry out of town. Poor Hook, but things start to look up for them. Yes, I finally got caught up. But that's for other reviews. :)
