TV Equals: "I enjoyed this week’s Once Upon a Time because it had more of a fairy tale feel to it than we sometimes get. This could be mostly because of the return of Maleficent. She’s a far more menacing villain that Ursula or Cruella, who seem to perpetually linger on the sidelines. There was also the interesting question posed as to whether there are any true villains and true heroes. The answer is still up in the air."
