“Once Upon A Time” Season 3 Episode 16 “It’s Not Easy Being Green” Recap:
A couple found a baby and they named her Zelena and brought her home to Oz. Zelena has showed her powers since the very first day that they saw her and she showed really wicked powers. The father is not too fond of her daughter’s powers. When Zelena was at the right age, she went to find the The Wizard to know about her past. The Wizard showed Zelena her mother, Cora and how she abandoned her and then gave birth to Regina and acquired royalty status. Zelena saw Rumple teaching Regina magic and she also wants to learn. The Wizard gave her silver slippers to click 3 times to get to The Enchanted Forest. Rumple warns Zelena not to get envious too much of Regina because she is literally turning a strong shade of green. Rumple was right all along because Zelena plans to kill Regina only to find out that everything was a plan and proven right, Rumple decided not to teach Zelena anymore magic.
Neal has finally been put to rest and after the ceremony, everyone gathered at Granny’s where Tink berates Regina about meeting her soul mate but still does not do anything about it. On the other hand, Hook suggests to Emma that he spends more time with Henry to know more stories about his father. Once Henry is gone, Zelena appears to visit her sister and announced a showdown at sundown. Regina wants to know the reality behind the family history that concerns Zelena so she started to look for old letters and she found one from Rumple, in which it says that Cora’s firstborn is the most powerful sorceress that Rumple has ever seen. Realization dawned on Regina that she wouldn’t be able to win the fight against Zelena.
At sundown, Zelena arrives and is ready to fight. It was quite a fight and when Zelena tries to get Regina’s heart, she discovered that it’s not there. And because of this, Regina got the chance to crush Zelena and she was able to defeat Zelena. Zelena flies away leaving Regina and the Charmings thinking about what’s going to be her next move.
Regina’s heart was with Robin Hood and she met up with him. She told Robin Hood to keep the heart and keep it safe.
Back in the cellar, Rumple told Zelena that if he could do things all over again, he would still choose to train Regina. Zelena is looking for a second chance and in the final Oz flashback, it showed Zelena asking the Wizard to turn back time but he said that it’s impossible. However, Zelena has something better in mind when she tears away the curtain revealing a carny from Kansas.
