When people talk about being a "good person," they always seem to grade themselves on a curve, because -- to most people -- the term "goodness" is subjective. Good compared to whom, we wonder? Compared to Mother Theresa, you probably wouldn't consider yourself a good person. But compared to Bill from accounting who steals your lunch from the fridge every day and spends a lot of work time on Facebook... well, compared to him, you're a saint. What I've always appreciated about Once Upon A Time is that, unlike a normal fairytale, it recognizes the fact that people are complex and layered; people are good and bad and it's usually difficult to relegate someone to one box or the other. "The Apprentice" focuses on a few different genres of the characters we see in Storybrooke and the Enchanted Forest: the pure-hearted good guys (Anna); the reformed villains (Hook), and those still classified as villains (Rumple, Regina) and tackles the idea of whether or not you can ever really change your ways.
