Some of these are just me rambling a bit as well.
I don't mind spoilers at all.
Also I'm well aware that most of these are probably just bad writing or me not putting the pieces together properly, but it's worth a shot right? And if for nothing more than to make someone wondering the same things to know that I feel you
And lastly, this is a lot of random questions, so if you have anything to add I would be delighted even if it's not an answer, and certainly don't feel like you have to answer all of them lmao
Season 5 questions that's been bugging me for dayyyys and I would love if someone had some insight to any of them.
Why didn't David and the others just look at the security camera like they have done countless other times before when Grif disappeared from his cell? s5e3
Why didn't true loves kiss work in the beginning in Camelot? For example when Emma and Hook were in that flower field, before she wanted to keep the darkness? s5e4
And why on earth could Zelena so easily make the equivalent of a dark one dagger with the excalibur for Merlin, the most powerful wizard ever, when he himself spent some careful time making one for Nimue? s5e7
Why didn't Emma just take excalibur from Arthur with magic when Zelena was trapped when they held her family captive in Camelot? And isn't Emma stronger than Zelena anyway (at least with light magic which she can't use at this point, but wasn't she planning on using dark magic anyway?) s5e8
And why doesn't Regina defeat Zelena and take excalibur? She's done it with light magic before? s5e8
And on that note, how did Arthur get that bracelet off Zelena in the first place? s5e8
And why didn't Merlin think to mention that even a single cut from the excalibur blade was deathly? s5e8 (I swear I had so many questions after this episode)
More general questions from my notes
And I've always wondered why Zoso's skin didn't look like Rumple's and Nimue's when back in season 1 or something he first met Rumple and tricked him. (This is the weakest question on this list because it was probably just a cloaking spell of some sort, but I'm still adding it.) And I might get this answered later, but why didn't Emmas skin look like that?
Also another thing that's probably been explained sometime before, but can you take a dark ones hearth? Obviously we know they can remove it themselves, as Rumple did this a lot when he was dying in season 4. Which makes me wonder if it's possible to control them that way as well, instead of only with the dagger?
Things that just annoyed me these past episodes
How did Hook not know he was the dark one as well? Don't you automatically get magic? And wouldn't it be kind of out of control like Emma's was in the beginning, only probably not as strong? Considering he's never had magic before. s5e8
This isn't as much of a question as only something that happens all the time I feel like in different settings. But remember when Zelena and Arthur went to that witch in DunBroch, and Zelena held her over that cauldron? Like why didn't the witch just poof herself away? Why don't people do this more often instead of just giving up and doing whatever they got asked to do? (I know I know, plot, but still) s5e9
When Merida threw out that magic beer. And her dad said it was good ale. Hardly looked like beer, or anything other than water, let alone ale. s5e9
Why did Merida become queen and not her mother? To be fair this is probably something formal I don't know from real life or something I should have known though. s5e9
Also ohmygod I hate Zelena so much. They really should've just killed her or made her the dark one or even taken her baby or literally whatever, she deserves it all what an actual bitch holy fuck
Btw isn't it kinda cute that they share a dagger in excalibur? And kinda cute that they're both dark ones now? I personally very much think so.
