Welcome to the official Once Upon a Time recap for Season 5 Finale. This includes Episode 22 “Only You” and Episode 23 “An Untold Story” (original airdate May 15, 2016). Everyone is mourning the death of Robin Hood. As shocked as she is to see that Hook is alive, Regina realizes that she needs to deal with whatever Mr. Gold is planning after a magical blast rocks Storybrooke. Henry reunites with Violet. He tells her about how magic has hurt so many people and he wants to destroy it. Violet has felt the pain of this as well. The two of them make plans to go on a quest to fix things – call it “Operation Mix Tape.” For more details, let’s take a look at all the latest Magical Moments.
Unplanned Trip: Word gets out around Storybrooke that magic may disappear. Zelena opens up a portal door to allow those who want to leave town for Fairy Tale Land before this happens. Mary Margaret, David, Hook and Zelena plan to stay behind, but the four of them are sucked through the door moments before it shuts and disappears. See where the heroes go:
Hyde and Seek: The heroes come across a skittish groundskeeper who claims he’ll be punished if he helps them with magic. ZAP! The heroes are knocked unconscious by a second man. They wake up in a cell. Their captor, the Warden, aka Mr. Hyde (played by Sam Witwer), believes the heroes were sent there by the Dark One, who becomes the target of his vengeance.
Let’s Make a Deal: Gold makes his way through the portal where he confronts Hyde, who claims he can help her wake Belle. There’s a place that has the answer he seeks. See their confrontation:
Good vs. Evil: Regina wants the Evil Queen to go away forever. There may be a way to accomplish that with Dr. Jekyll’s serum. Enough was salvaged for one last dose. Once Regina uses it, she must take advantage of the brief moment when the Evil Queen doesn’t have her magic. See if she succeeds:
Hooking Up: Henry is thrilled to learn that Violet’s father isn’t really from Camelot. He’s from Connecticut. She’s glad to be in Storybrooke. The two of them share a sweet kiss as Henry’s moms watch from afar. Regina declares “Operation Mix Tape” a success. In other romantic news, Emma has something to say to Hook.
The Evil Queen is Back!: In Storybrooke, Mr. Hyde claims that Storybrooke is his now and he’s brought some friends with him. He warns that darkness is not easy to snuff out. In New York, the Evil Queen materializes before the Dragon as she rips out his heart. Regina may have won their battle, but this is a war.
