Once Upon a Time - Birth

The early birth of Zelena's (Rebecca Mader) child not only begins a series of revelations about the final steps Emma (Jennifer Morrison) took to fully embrace the darkness and become the Dark One but also the reasoning behind those choices and the secret she's been keeping from the man she loves. Not interested in the baby itself, Emma's concerns involve the witch who she sees as a possible escape from the darkness inside her. And, thanks to the final revelation, we know now why it was so important for Emma to hide the events of Camelot from all of her loved ones, particularly Hook (Colin O’Donoghue).

Despite the questionable motives surrounding her choices, Emma's plan does have a certain cold logic to it. Willing to kill Zelena to destroy the dark magic in both herself and in the man she loves, Emma could remove it all from the world with the only cost being the life of villain who has had no qualms about taking and destroying anything, or anyone, she pleases. The final reveal of Killian's true fate gets us one step closer to the mid-season finale and the likely conclusion of the Camelot plotline.
