I have a few things to say about "Dreamcatcher." You missed that there was a reference by Rumple to his son. I thought that was a moving scene. And did you notice Cruella's car for sale? And it's been there for over 6 weeks. About the timeline. Watch "Heroes and Villains" and you'll know exactly when "The Broken Kingdom" took place. And 'Five Years Ago' does acually fit. They are counting the time before the currse was cast, as well as after it. If you add up the Charmings going to war with Regina and King George, the nine months of the pregnancy, the time after Emma broke the curse, including 'the missing year' in Season Three, it adds up to five years. One other thing. Do you ever notice how much Regina disregards Belle? I'm not just talking about her evil acts like heart stealing, or false memory creating, or imprisonment. But simply not giving her credit where it's due. Belle was the one who figured out Zelena's time travel plan. And she's the one who suggested using one of Henry's things to break in. And no one said "Great guess, Belle. Thank you." And I'd bet (if it was shown) that Belle was the one who suggested using a fake dagger with Emma's name on it to protect the real one. And no one seems to mention that Belle was asked to participate in creating a cure for the 'shattered sight' curse. I think that Regina resents Belle, not only for knowing more magic than her, when she doesn't practice it, but also because she resents Belle's kindness, despite her suffering. Both of them have been continually abused throughout their lives, Regina by her mother, and Belle by Regina. Belle should be just as vengeful and screwed up as Regina was. But she hasn't given into hatred the way Regina did. Belle's bright heart reminded Regina that she had a choice of how she turned out. She resents knowing that Belle got it right, while she didn't. And I really hate that Belle and Regina haven't had a confrontion over what she did in Season Four. For all we know, Regina wasn't planning on giving her heart back to her! Belle was ordered to forget that she had it, so why would Regina bother with that much decency?
