This was a fantastic episode of Once Upon A Time. Fantastic. What has this series been doing with this season? Can we have Jane Espenson write ALL OF THE EPISODES for the rest of the season please? And in other news, I am now officially dead inside.
As I live and breathe, I cannot believe that Once made an episode that carved out a little chunk of heart for all of us shippers. And not just any shippers, but the fans that knew they were cheering for something that will probably never happen. The Mulan/Sleeping Beauty shippers. But they did. And wow. Just wow. Sure this episode led to nothing but heartbreak, but just the fact that we were that much closer to getting two Princesses IN LOVE. That means a lot. A lot, a lot. So what happened?
Mulan finally comes to terms with a secret love she had been harboring for a long time. After meeting Robin Hood (more on that later) she realizes that she needs to start living her life, and runs off to tell the one she loved of her many feelings. Oh the feelings! But alas, it's not meant to be — because just as Mulan is about to confess, Aurora drops the bomb that she's carrying that Prince What's-his-face's baby DAMMMMMMMMITTT.
