Hey Once Upon A Time (OUAT) fans, I hope you enjoyed this weeks back-to-back episodes as much as I did. Before I get started on my crazy theory, I just want to say that this is my first article and I hope that you guys will take it easy on me... or not, it's up to you. There are going to be some spoilers ahead so please if you haven't watched most of the season 5 episodes then catch up and get back to my post. So let's get started!!
I can say that I fell in love with the character from the moment Merida (Amy Manson) was introduced to OUAT. That beautiful red hair and her charming Scottish accent pierced my heart.
Throughout this 9 episodes writers made sure that we see Merida from all the angles. She is brave, can take care of herself, and is ready to do whatever it takes to protect her family and her kingdom. She even kidnapped Belle (Emilie de Ravin) to help her make a potion in order to save her little brothers.
By the end of episode 6 "The Bear and the Bow" I thought that we won't see as much of Merida anymore since she played her part and turned Rumpelstiltskin/Gold into a hero... but I was wrong. Episode 9 "The Bear King" was a huge surprise for me. A whole episode dedicated to Merida made me think that her story is not over yet. Imagine how cool it would be to get a show about her. The main plot would be her war and revenge against Arthur (Liam Garrigan). It would be nice if after season 5 finale they both would return to the Enchanted Forest and continue where they left off. Merida would team up with with Mulan (Jamie Chung) and Red Riding Hood/Ruby (Meghan Ory). It was fun to watch their interactions and I would love to see more of them.
I hope you liked my theory. I would love to read you opinion about it in the comments below.
