Originals: Episode Recap - "Bloodletting"
On Tuesday (Nov. 12th), Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Tyler (Michael Trevino) face-off. Haley (Phoee Tonkin) was able to get the upper hand over her captures Tyler and his helper after Tyler stuck a needle in her growing baby bump and took blood from her and Klaus baby. Haley had no choice but to defend herself before Tyler allowed his helper (who was just turned into a hybrid by being given the baby's blood and killed by Tyler) to feed on Haley again.
Once free Haley ran as fast as she could into the woods and ended up running into Elijah. The two share a very intense hug and Haley reveals that her baby's blood can create more hybrids and Klaus is plotting to create a new army (thanks to Tyler filling her head with lies). Now Elijah who promised to keep her and her baby safe is ready to defend Haley against her own baby's daddy, his own brother, Klaus.
Mean while the big face-off happens. Klaus and Tyler rumble in the woods. For a minute it looks like Tyler has the upper hand on Klaus but as always Klaus reigns superior and is on the verge of tearing Tyler's heart right out of his chest. With Tyler's heart in his hands, Klaus decides not to kill his only living hybrid. Tyler runs off to team-up with Marcel while Klaus comes face to face with the lies Tyler told now coming from Elijah's mouth. Klaus hurt from his brother's betrayal takes a huge bite out of Elijah's neck and leaves his brother to hallucinate with Haley by his side.
Else where, Marcel shares with Rebekah how much in love he was with her over 100 years ago when he shows her the home he started to have built for them so they could be together. After a deep conversation and some ah-ha moments Marcel begs Rebekah to join him in bringing down Klaus. Rebekah still committed to her family ties goes home to learn that Klaus now has turned on Elijah once more and it seems, she quickly changes her mind and is ready to help bring down Klaus. Poor Klaus, thinks Rebekah is his only allie and is ready to bring her in on his plans to get rid of Marcel.
Next week things heat-up on the episode "The River in Reverse". The
Vampires team up to bring down Klaus. Some how Klaus is captured and is
locked up in chains. Rebekah says, "He deserves everything he’s gonna get”. Oooo-weeee when Klaus gets loose they better all run because he is going to kill every single one of those vampires and poor Rebekah will be back in her coffin to sleep for another 100 years.

SayWhatNews goes One on One with Once Upon A Time star Dylan Schmid who plays the younger Baelfire on the hit ABC series. Dylan talked about his role and life on the set:
SayWhatNews: In 2012, you landed the younger role of Baelfire, Rumpelstiltskin’s son in the hit ABC series, “Once Upon A Time”. How did you hear about the role?
Dylan: I heard about this role from my agent but I had no idea it was for Baelfire because it had a different name attached to it, and much of the script was blackened out too so I really didn’t know who I was until I actually got the real script. Even then I was really confused because I couldn’t find my name on the script. Once I realized I was Baelfire, and that I was working with Robert Carlyle, it was like an unbelievable fairy tale come true for me. I was so excited!
SayWhatNews: As a young actor building his acting resume, how amazing is it for you to be part of a hit TV show?
Dylan: Yeah, it’s definitely life altering! I was a bit shocked at first with all the fan mail but I’m just so grateful for their support! The fans are awesome!
Once Upon A Time: Episode Recap -"Dark Hollow"
Ariel (Joanna Garcia Swisher) and Belle (Emilie De Ravin) team-up to find the secret thing that Rumpel needs to defeat Peter Pan. The two go to Rumpel's shop and after thinking it through real hard Belle discovers each hidden clue that leads her to a magical hidden small square door in the floor that holds Pandora's box.
The two men who entered the town before the protective shield over Storybrooke went up
appeared pointing two guns right at Belle and Ariel. The girls learn
that the two men work for Pan and they are in fact John and Michael
Darling, the brothers of Wendy. They reveal that Pan has been forcing
them to work for him, if not he will kill Wendy who he has been holding captive for many many years. The Darling brother tie up Bell and Ariel and run off with Pandora's box to destroy it. Ariel saves the day by using her mermaid tale to help break herself and Belle free. The 2 Princesses run off to find the Darling Brothers who headed to the Dwarfs mine to destroy the box. After a confrontation Belle convinces the brothers not to destroy the box because it would kill everyone in town and they need it to defeat Pan. It took some time but with the promise to also save Wendy, the Darling brothers decided to join the other-side to help defeat Pan and save their sister.
Henry sneaks away and follows one of the lost boys to discover a sick girl up in a make shift tree house bedroom pretending to be sick (thanks to Peter Pan planning a head). Wendy Darling is the other person Pan had captive when he had Neal. He threatened Wendy to get her to lie to Henry so Henry would willing help him save magic on the island. Poor Henry has no clue he is walking in on another one of Pan's well thought out lies.
Mean while Neal (Michael Raymond James), Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) and Emma (Jennifer Morrison) go after Pan's shadow because its the only way to get off the island according to Neal. The 3 arrive at the dark cave where Pan's shadow likes hang and things start to fall apart. While Neal was attempting to light the coconut lantern a very impatient Hook decided he could do it better and much faster. The two began to fight over the lighter and the lighter went flying across the room. The two were so busy trying to prove who was the better man for Emma that they almost forgot why they were there until Pan's shadow and other shadows flew in fast and attacked. Emma took action and grabbed the coconut and used the magic that Regina had taught her and lit the candle. The flame lured Pan's shadow in and Emma was able to trap the shadow with the lid. The 3 headed back to the others who were convincing Tinker Bell that it was time for her to lead them to Pan's camp.
Ariel arrived back to Neverland with the box and gave it to Rumpel and Regina. Regina kept her promise and gave Ariel the ability to walk on land whenever she wanted so she could go back to Storybrooke to find her true love Prince Eric. Before Ariel left she informed them that Belle wanted them to save Wendy.
From the looks of things Pan's days are numbered as the gang fights together to save Henry. Watch the sneak peek of next week's episode:
Once Upon a Time: Peter Pan's fate revealed -
Looks like after weeks of Pan running havoc against our favorite Storybrooke characters on Neverland Island, Rumpel finally gets to give it to him straight in the back. Hollywoodlife had the exclusive pics of Rumpel (Robert Carlyle) stabbing Pan (Robbie Kay) in the back with the Dark One's dagger which zaps all of his youthful magic and turns him into an older Peter Pan.
The pics are from the set of Storybrooke in Vancouver while filming the scene of Pan's demise.
Bonus news: Pan might not be the only one with a terrible fate. Regina (Lana Parrilla) was spotted lying on the street, with Henry kneeling down over her. Hmmm what does this mean? I guess we will have to wait and see.
