Once Upon a Time > Once Upon a Time Review: The World Comes to Storybrooke > Comments Page 2
my 2 favorite lines were snow "it was not weird we were cursed." & regina "lets wake up henry, emma and (lol) those 2 idiots". The only thing better would have been when snow said hush up leroy, she said hush up grumpy. I liked the mixing of horror and fairy tales. Rumple in mary shelly was a hoot. Cant wait to c the culture shock of rumple in new york(?). Funny how the moral of the season is do not do good deeds cause they hurt u. Snow saves regina, belle saves hook, now the town saves the driver and each time disaster follows. One thing, if the town has had no contact with the outside world: how did rumple get henry for regina, how did henry leave town, how does the town get supplies, even new comic books. Maybe they mean contact since magic was brought back. Remember August came from outside. One question, will season 2 be twenty or twenty-two episodes?
I agree Belle was over reacting to Rumpie and no one seemed to care about her losing her memory but Rumpie. Cora smelling Regina's clothes was odd. Like Red and Dr. Whale together. Her saying I ate my boyfriend was the best line of the show. I was wondering when someone would notice that Frankinstein is not a fairytale. Love when they do the Frankinstein they do it in black and white like the old movies. Three weeks is a long wait but at least it is not as bad as having to wait until March for Grimm to come back on. Stupid NBC! Rumpie in the real world should be funny. I think he is going to find out Henry is his grandchild.
Thanks, MonkeyC - I was thinking the same as the others who forgot about that. Good assessment.
I liked the episode because it a little of everything, while still running a coherent story of its own. All the pieces fit together in a plain way, in order. My favorite line was, "I ate my boyfriend."
The thing most people seem to be overlooking about Belle's huge overreaction was that since she passed the town line, her fairy tale memories all disappeared, leaving only the life and thoughts she had in Storybrooke before everyone realized that they were cursed. Belle was locked up in a HOSPITAL BASEMENT in the LOONY BIN. This type of stuff usually messes with a person's mind. It made her paranoid and scared, and of course wasn't used to being around people, especially someone hovering over her bed as she's sleeping kissing her. I'm pretty sure if you're locked up in a mental institution for years of your life, you wouldn't be used to being told that people love you and are trying to help you. I also thought it was a huge reaction, but then I remembered this, and pushed that thought out of my mind. It makes sense that she reacted that way.
An ok show today. Didn't like it when Belle throw the chipped cup. Hope that she will find her memory comes back.
Last night episode was just ok for me. I was really frustrated with Belle. I understand that she no longer remembers Rumple but I think the acting was so over the top. She acted like he was hideous and thought of him touching her was the worst thing ever. I was so mad when she threw that cup.
I love scenes with Red in it, she should have more lines. Loved her talk with Whale. Don't like the fact that we have to wait 3 more weeks to see a new episode.
I thought this was a good episode, despite the fact that Frankenstein, or the New Promethius, by Mary Shelley, was a horror novel, and not a fairy tale, though it had legendary elements to it. It is often considered one of the first horror novels ever written.Still, I think it is interesting that "Dr Whale" took his name from the director of the first Frankenstein movie, James Whale. That said, I really hope that no one brings Bram Stoker's Dracula to StoryBrook, because the way people view Vampires today as some kind of sexy glittering rock stars isn't how Stoker wrote them. I really hope, also, that the guy who hit Hook isn't going to bring in lots of lookee-lous to Storybrook. I also hope that Rumple and Emma find Bae rather quickly, because if they leave the town alone too long, Cora and Regina will wreak havoc!
i like this one. i am so glad that red had an bigger part this season. like to see how this all works out since we now know greg lied
Maybe it's just me but I have grown rather tired of the show as of late. I loved the episode where Emma and Snow came home. It was great. The first new episode, with Archie dying just wants very good to me. I love it when they are in the enchanted forest. Now it is like watching Revenge maybe with better costumes. I like the fairy tales and magic. Bring that back instead of showing this soap opera stuff and maybe I will become interested again. And I agree, they could ditch Dr Whale/Frankenstein any day and it wouldn't be soon enough for me. What's next vampires?
No-memory-Belle reminds me of keeps-a-dead-squirrel-as-her-baby-Claire.
Sad I am losing interest in this show. Too many characters, too much soap opera, and they showed Michael Raymond James in the season opening but he has not to be seen since. I do not so much care about Cora and Hook. They are boring me.

Oh and Belle will have to learn to love Rumple again, since he's not her true love since she can't remember him. Once she loves him again without her memories and he kisses her, that's when she'll get her memories back.
I really like this episode, simply because we finally got to see how Dr. Frankenstein got involved in all this mess. In the Doctor episode, Regina mentioned something about maybe needing him, so that's why she brought him along, so I'm guessing anyone who Regina interacted with along the way to enact this curse was brought along as well (that's why Jefferson came, but Cora didn't even though they were both in Wonderland)
I like the idea that the Werewolf and Frankenstein could end up together! Red and Whale might make a nice couple, now if they can just get Count Dracula into Storybrooke somehow, that would be cool (but please no glittering fancy boys to be a vampire)
Emma knows he's lying, but what can she do? She's right, they've got to act like a normal town, with normal people to not draw attention to themselves. Nothing says "come visit" more than a town full of loonies...
i lost it when Belle broke the chipped cup. Geeze Belle, I know you're freaking out an upset but you've got to learn to control you temper! (I had to)
I disagree about Emma losing her touch. To me, it seemed she did know the guy was lying, but she was afraid to tell the others because they were all ready to kill him.
Bring Henry's dad into the picture.
Rumple's dad or mom?
Just speculating - Maybe the next episode will be "Manhattan" where I am hoping Emma finds Henry's father. Rumple is dragging Emma off in search of Bael.
I also agree that Emma is losing her touch. I also think that something might happen with Red and Dr. Whale. I knew the true love kiss between Belle and Rumple wouldn't work, not because I don't like them, but because I think Rumple true love is his son. I so do hope that Regina is playing Cora because it looks like ABC is kinda running out of ideas for this show and they want to make a season 3.
if Frankenstein can turn up, then it's possible that Godzilla could turn up. I certainly hope so. Will probably be sniffly and looking for a long lost father .. which will probably Rumpole.
I knew that he was lying... How did Emma not sense that... She is loosing her touch. I wonder whats going to happen now... Man this show just gets more and more interesting! LOVE IT! Can't believe we have to wait 3 weeks for the next episode! Argh!
