Now that Emma is the Dark One, how will she remember she’s the savior?

Emma

The savior

The hero

Her parents struck a deal with a Sorcerer’s apprentice to send the darkness away from her

She is special, powerful, and now she is the Dark One

So the question remains

Now that Emma is the Dark One, how will she remember that she is the savior?

We’ve seen this type of storyline before;

Most of Season 1 the inhabitants of Storybrooke didn’t know who they really were, until people, a magical storybook and events began to break their conjured amnesia.

Remember Emma played a very important role as the savior, but now she needs a savior.

In Season 5, Who will be Emma’s savior and remind her of who she really is? Will it be Henry (as he did in Season 1)?

Will it be Hook? Remember, it was Hook that was tasked to go to New York and bring her back to Storybrooke after the “missing year”.

Sheriff-Graham-OUAT
Once-Upon-a-Time-Neal-Cassidy

Will voices from the beyond (Graham or Neal) speaking to her and guiding her away from the darkness?

Breaking the grip of the darkness isn’t easy,

“The darkness likes how you taste. It doesn’t mind the bitter. And now that it’s started the meal, it’s gonna finish it. You can no more fly from your fate than can that swan.” Rumpelstiltskin

but we believe that there is hope for Emma.

Since Emma has taken the dark power as a sacrifice to spare Regina, and not yearning for it like Rumpel, will Emma have an easier time of breaking it’s spell?

Will there be an object that will “jog her memory” that could be used? What would it be?

Will Emma wrestle with the goodness and the darkness in her or will the darkness choke out the goodness and make it powerless?

Will good actions by Emma break the power of the darkness one act at a time (Like she broke the curse one action at a time in Season 1)?

How will Gold’s White Heart affect him in OUAT Season 5?

How will Gold’s White Heart affect him in OUAT Season 5?

Gold’s White Heart

We have seen many different hearts with many different colors, but it is always red.

reginaheartrip2

The heart that the Apprentice put back into Gold’s body was white.

Pure white.

This is a type of heart we’ve never seen before.

How will Gold’s White Heart affect him in OUAT Season 5?

As the shade of red was swallowed up by the Darkness, so was his ability to love.

“In a manner of speaking, yes. I will lose any ability to love, and that goodness you once saw inside of me… well, that’ll be gone forever…” Mr. Gold – Sympathy for the De Vil

Will the White Heart be the “do over” or “second chance” that Rumpel needs to make things right?

TWEET THE ABOVE PHRASE

This time it wasn’t a curse to turn back time, it was that cruel justice of a life of bad choices that took the last bit of goodness in which he could grasp love. It is gone.

It reminds me a bit of when Gold asked Charming for dating advice. A man with unlimited power, but not having the wherewithal to build a relationship based on honesty.

In Season 5, Gold seems to be sailing into uncharted waters – what will it mean for him to love without the pull of Darkness to impede him?

TWEET THE ABOVE PHRASE

rumbelle

Will Belle teach him to love? To care? To be the man she knew he could always be?

Will Gold be emotionless? A shell of a man, empty – waiting to be filled up with either good or bad choices.

Will Gold be rewarded by good choices to become more alive and complete to live a new life?

I’m reminded by the theme in early OUAT Seasons that the inhabitants of Storybrooke were “alive” but asleep. Going through the motions of daily life, but unable to be in true love or change or help others, until Emma showed up.

Unfortunately, Emma can no longer help Gold. Can Regina?

Is it only Merlin that can restore true life to Mr. Gold? I think it may be Emma and Merlin working together. Unfortunately, Emma has to be set free from the bonds of Darkness first.

TWEET THE ABOVE PHRASE

One of my hopes is that Gold’s new heart is devoid of allowing him to do anymore evil (Alot like Snow and Charming performed the spell for Emma, by the way). This is a nice thought, but that would not work in a dramatic TV show. Drama is based in struggle of good vs evil.

Is Dark Swan the end of OUAT, or a new beginning?

addtext_com_MTEzODI0NDYzNzMx

Riding the waves of fan fervor on Social Media is a full time job. Some days it’s all smiles, rainbows and Unicorn stickers, other days its time to run inside, lock the door and hide, but as we wait through the hiatus until Season 5…

Is Dark Swan the end of OUAT, or a new beginning?

Once_Upon_A_Time_S04E23_1080p_1492

Before you put flowers on the OUAT grave, let’s look at what we think the writers are doing with the Dark Swan storyline.

1. Emma needs a new, massive story arc

Once_Upon_A_Time_S04E23_1080p_1508

We’ve seen many story arcs with Emma; Will she believe that she is the savior? Will she let herself be open to love – after Graham, then after Neal? Will she forgive Regina and allow her to go on her redemption path? Will she forgive her Mother for what she did by sending Emma’s darkness to Lily? Many more for sure, but we need something bigger – and this is it.

2. The poetic irony of the savior becoming The Dark One (to me) works

It has been done before in stories (Hobbit, etc), movies and comic books, but now we will see it in our beloved OUAT universe.

What will Emma (the hero, the savior always fighting for good and against evil) do with all the dark, evil power at her disposal? There is a theory going around the the Dark One power also influences the host, so will we see a battle within Emma herself between the good part and the new darkness?

Rumpel lusted for the Dark One’s power, but Emma took it as a sacrifice. How will this effect Season 5?

TWEET THE ABOVE PHRASE

3. All the other Storybrooke baddies are goodies, now

Regina is redeemed, Rumpel is frozen in magical carbonite, Ursula got her voice back, Maleficent got her daughter back, Cruella has (moment of silence please) died and Zelena is locked up.

Even the Charmings had their dark secret revealed, confessed it, and did what they could to make it right, so they are good now.

No more baddies are left – except the savior – so she’s going bad.

Adam and Eddy really had no other choice.

Actually, they have been hinting at it. Her parents had some dark dealings, and Operation Mongoose Part 1 did give us a taste of the heros but Emma going Villain, so to me it was inevitable.

4. The ex-baddies can complete their redemption arc, if they want to

Regina taught Emma magic and I would imagine she will have some cautionary words to help Emma along the way.

I’ll bet that Gold (if he turns good and gets out of the magical carbonite) will give Emma some sage advice – from one ex Dark One to the new Dark One as she walks the dark path.

Henry and the Charmings will have some input, too.

Once thing to remember is that Emma knows everything about everyone else, so she will call B.S. if she get platitudes from anyone else.

It should be very interesting.

5. Love & Family did not rescue Rumpel from the dagger, what will it take for Emma?

We know from the show that ‘Love is Strength’ and the power of ‘True Love’, etc, but I don’t know if the love of Hook, family or friends will be enough to loose Emma from the grasp of the Darkness.

It didn’t for Rumpelstiltskin. We all have walked the road of him turning away from the best in life to choose power.

How will Merlin fit in to the equation of loosing Emma? What other dealings with our characters have with Merlin previously? What difficulties will that cause?

Is Dark Swan the end of Once Upon a Time?

Once_Upon_A_Time_S04E23_1080p_1579 (1)

No

I think it will be nice to dive deeper into the characters we already know and see a dark side of Emma that we never have as a way to give her more depth.

Will Lily be the key to freeing Emma? If someone knows about Emma’s darkness, it would be Lily, right?
