Now that's how you set up a penultimate episode. Writers, take note.
No offense to Adam, Eddy, or Lana, but Regina is at her best when she's portrayed as the sociopath she clearly is. Having said that, though, it's still fun to see somebody else - or, in this case, three somebodies - outsmart and outmaneuver her.
I did like the FTL scenes between her and Snow, not so much for what they tried to say about Regina, but for what they told us about Snow and how she saw Regina's darkness.
It was rather neat to not only see the return of Henry and Emma sleuths extraordinaire, but also to get a callback and reference to Emma and Neal's days as a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde.
Hook, Tamara, and Greg really do make an excellent villain trio, which is rather fitting given that this particular plotline looks to be leading us straight to Neverland and because it is also increasingly reminding me of some of the story arcs from the Starcatchers series.
I really, really enjoyed this ep and can't wait to see what's going to happen next.
