Once Upon a Time - Heart of Gold

The storyline of the Author (Patrick Fischler) and Emma's (Jennifer Morrison) disagreement with her parents over what they did to ensure her role as Savior are put on hold as "Heart of Gold" focuses mainly on Robin Hood (Sean Maguire) and Marian (Christie Laing), the hero's trip to Oz, and what he and his family have been up to in New York since leaving Storybrooke. The storyline includes a major plot twist allowing for the return of a villain as well as foreshadowing the possibility of a happy ending for Robin and Regina (Lana Parrilla) who learns the truth about her sister Zelena's (Rebecca Mader) twisted plan.

Not surprisingly, the storyline puts Robin firmly in the hero camp including showing us how he came to take the name Robin Hood and a trip to Oz leading to the outlaw meeting Will Scarlet (Michael Socha) for the first time. Gold's power over Regina and Emma's anger with her parents help continue to pave the way for the dark turn of the show's preeminent hero likely by, or during, this season's finale. And then there's still the storyline of the Author and how much he can, or will, change the fabric of Storybrooke.
