Once Upon a Time: The Outsider
But what I really liked was how we got to see more of Belle in this episode, both in the fairy-tale land and Storybrooke. She's clever and intelligent, not as much of an action girl as Snow or Mulan, but still very proactive. I don't think I could fight Mulan or survive on the run like Snow, but I could effeminately use my brain like Belle does.
And the way she interacts with Rumple--that's what a resurrection arc should look like. I still don't understand how the writers/producers/whoever are messing up Regina's so much when they got Rumple's running so well. She tries to hold him back from beating up Hook, from giving into those darker urges.
And what does she get for it?
SPOILERS FOR EPISODE ENDING
Amnesia! They took her memory, and since she doesn't have any memories of Storybrook beyond the padded cell, it leaves her with so little...and Hook got hit too. And does that mean he lost his memory as well, or was he exempt because he wasn't there for the curse...
