whats the deal with the pumpkin pie and emma?? I dont remember
Writers! Get a cookbook. You don't baste with gravy. Silly wabbits!
This a terrible show, but what do I expect from the writers of Lost, I tried to give it half a season but this last eps did it for me. Too bad the pilot gave it so much promise.
I rarely acknowledge wardrobe while watching tv. My mind just throws it into the general background. I noticed a couple people commented favorably on the EQ's outfit in the woods. I must agree. Stunning! This does not mean I will be watching Melissa and Joan on Oscar night!!!
@Ale and @Spookypaws, the blind witch only stole the apple from the EQ, the story didn't say she created it. The EQ sends Hansel and Gretel in to retrieve something the Blind Witch "took for her", I believe...
Rumplestiltskin is "owed" Emma in a way, isn't he? I mean, it's clear he remembers the curse so he must also remember that Snow White promised him her first child..yet, for some reason, I believe that he is also redeemable in some way..
I'm really eager to find out who Henry's father is...I definitely don't see it being the stranger...
Also, am I mistaken or didn't Emma once tell Mary Margaret that Henry thought she was Mary/Snow's daughter? No?
I just love this show!! Its great to have an evening to just be able to relax and run away from lifes realities such as the horrible politics/politicians we are forced to deal with everyday right now. The storyline is familiar but with wonderful twist and turns, and the costumes are just beautiful! Please keep it coming!! THANKS!!!
I love this show lots of people are not fond of mr gold, but rumplestinskin was my favorite fairytale as a kid!!i love his deals and ways!!
I miss Charming and Graham!
I think Rumple likes to be on the winning side, and it doesn't matter which side it is. He knew the Evil Queen was going to do the curse and worked it to his advantage; now he knows Emma is destined to break the curse and is playing that angle. I don't think he's evil-evil-evil like Regina; if any "bad guy" is going to get redemption, it's going to be him...
LOVED the scene when Emma told Mary-Margaret that Henry thought she was her (Snow White's) daughter. There was a nice balance of joking on the surface but emotion underneath. It seemed to make Mary-Margaret more maternal and the bit with the blanket at the end was pitch perfect.
I didn't expect to like this show when it first came on but I found it (excuse the expression) charming.
And last night I was thrilled to see Nicholas Lea as H&G's father! Tender, intense, sexy - hot as ever!
I think that the show is two slow and choppy. have the characters interact with each other for a more realistic "fairy" show.
As most did i will also bet my money on the stranger being Rumpelstilskin's son. Except for the fact that he looks like he's younger version, he's the only one that could have escaped the fate of everyone else in Storybrook. I mean...it wouldn't be the first deal Rumple had with the queen!
After the previous episode i was also thinking that Rumple's son might be Henry's dad...But now i'm confused. There's no chance that Emma and The Stranger have changed so much over the past 10 years that they won't recognise each other. Well...We'll see...If we notice an unusual craving for pumpkinpie by his side then we'll have in our hands a first clue:D!!
I loved EQ's outfit out in the woods, even with all those extra dark curls! The Blind Witch seemed like an interesting character, but too much more would have given me nightmares, also!
My first impression of the stranger was that he is Henry's dad, but Emma didn't seem to recognize him. Could it be? Emma must have been in jail a long time if, not only did she find out she was pregnant while in jail, but she also gave birth while imprisoned. She's never said what she was in for.
All in all, a good episode!
I think the new guy in town is the Big Bad Wolf, in human form. Don't you get the Big Bad vibe from him?
@Naomi I actually did make the guess that he might be Henry's father in my own review. He could also be Rumple's son AND the boy who found Emma as a baby -- he could be all three. :)
@Heather I agree -- I think Rumple is planning for Emma to take his place as the Dark One.
I really, really like this show, but with that said, it does move a bit slowly at times. I'm enjoying their twists on familiar fairy tales, but I wish they would also spend time just really moving the story forward. I feel vested in Emma, Snow/Mary Margaret, Charming/David, Henry and yes, even Rumple and the Evil Queen and I wait to see some more movement on breaking the spell and interactions between them in the modern world. I am definitely interested in finding out who this mysterious stranger is. And hopefully he's someone who will be sticking around since we lost some eye candy when Graham died.
Of course Mr. Gold is interested in Emma. He wanted to know her name from Snow White and names give control over a person. I think he sees her as something that belongs to him and that he might need in the future. So he's helping her to win her "trust". But I do not think for one moment that he sincerely likes her.The Hänsel & Gretel story wasn't super intriguing but I enjoyed watching just for the outfits of the EQ.
I'm gonna bet something different than Rumpel's son. I think that would be too soon. I think that the new guy is arrogant and pompous. That sounds like Beauty and the Beast if you ask me. We'll see ... ;-)
Im surprised no one has made the guess that this could be henrys father i mean just because emma didnt seem to recognize him doesnt mean age hasnt changed him i mean its been what ten years since she has seen him my husband thinks its the big bad wolf. I look forward to sundays to watch the show but i feel like they are going so slow that when the finale comes they will be trying to cram stuff into one episode and leave things out
Truthfully, this was one of my favorite episodes to date. I love how the Evil Queen wanted Hansel and Gretel to live with her in the castle...it shows the side of her that just wants to be loved.
I hope the mystery guest is Rumple's son, but I'm praying that the truth about Henry's father doesn't leak out! How devastating for everyone, especially since Emma prides herself on her honesty.
Ok, here is my take. Rumple/Mr. Gold is going to trick Emma, just the way he was tricked into becoming an evil, magical being. I think the mystery man is the dark knight who works for the queen. However, that doesn't mean he can't be Rumple's son at the same time. Remember from the previous episode that Rumple's son was willing to fight in the war against trolls. My guess is he grew up to become this powerful dark knight.
Was anyone else thoroughly distracted by the clear difference in hair color between the EQ's real hair and the wig with all the curls, whens she was wearing that hat? The wig with was several shades darker and I couldn't see anything else after a few minutes.
Also, I'm kind of disappointed Emma Caufiel won't be sticking around. It's interesting that EQ and Rumpel are the only creatures with magical powers from the fairy tale world who are still in Storybrooke (Maleficent, the Hansel and Gretel witch, the Fairy godmother, etc). Everyone in town that we've seen was just a hero/heroine who was affected by magic, but didn't have any powers of their own. I wonder if that will be significant?
Watched this for the first time because Nick Lea was a guest star. The evil queen is so hammy with over-the-top acting that I could not become a regular for this show. I like the idea of melding the fairy tale world with the modern world, but I would be more interested if the fable aspect of the fairy tale world was transmuted into the modern world showing some growth perhaps, in human behavior. The bad are still bad and the good are still good without any modification coming from the 21st century. Ah well, I'll watch next time there is a guest star I like.
Ooh, I like the idea that he's Rumple's son! Not sure how that would work time-wise, but we'll see. My theory (which isn't necessarily at odds with that one) is that the stranger is the 7-year-old that, according to the paper Emma was reading, found her on the side of the road as a baby.
True!! I'm still hooked in all the plots...from what I see this guy is intended for Mary Margaret, I'm loving this show, because it isn't your typical fairytale.
