* PersonalGainHurts: In the previous episode, Henry used the Author's quill to change things (obtaining the Olympian crystal) because he believed the ends justified the means just that once. What's the results of this? Him running off with the crystal is what causes the unstable portal that sucks Zelena, Hook, Snow, and Charming into the Land of Untold Stories, and the final results of that is both the Evil Queen being released as her own entity and Hyde making a deal with Gold that gets him control of Storybrooke.

* BigDamnKiss: Henry and Violet

Added DiffLines:

** Henry eliminated magic, as he perceived it as the source of all suffering. Instead, it ended up creating more misery by blocking the separated family's only hope to getting home through magic portals.


* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Instead of coming to terms with your inner darkness and learning to live with your past misdeeds and grow as a better person, you can just use magic to pull all that darkness out of you and turn it into a living breathing evil clone that you can kill free of any ethical and moral questions or consequences. It's totally okay to create a living thinking being and then kill it (which is absolutely murder) in the same breath because your creation is evil.

That said, it didn't really work out so well for either of the people who tried it.

Added DiffLines:

* CurbStompBattle: When Hyde tries to use Belle as leverage against Gold, Gold responds by Force choking him until he claims he can actually help.

* BrokenAesop: Regina's quandary in this episode is about fighting her inner darkness and finding a way to deal with it and have a happy life with the support of her family and friends who love her. By the end of the episode, instead of coming to terms with her inner darkness and learning to live with her past misdeeds and grow as a better person, Regina just uses magic to turn all that darkness into a living breathing evil clone of herself that she can kill free of any ethical and moral questions or consequences. It's totally okay to create a living being and then commit murder by killing it in the same breath (which is a deliberately evil and immoral act) and be justified because it's evil!
