Once Upon a Time Round Table: "Witch Hunt"

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Regina came face to face with the Wicked Witch and got the surprise of her life on Once Upon a Time Season 3 Episode 13.

Yes, her half-sister is green but that won't stop the Evil Queen from going on a "Witch Hunt."

Our TV Fanatics Jim Garner, Michelle Calbert, and Robin Harry are joined by Gareth from Once Upon a Fan below to decide what the Wicked Witch has in store for Regina and whether Henry should get his memory back...

The Wicked Witch plans a fate worse than death for Regina. Any ideas what that might be?

Jim: Being back in Storybrooke near Henry without him remembering her seems like a pretty good start. 

Gareth: I think she plans to take away everything that Regina loves, including Henry. She wants Regina beaten and broken, although I think there is more to it than just the fact that she was jealous that Regina got to cast the curse. I'm interested in who Zelena's father is? Could it be Rumple or Snow's father, Leopold? Just when you thought this family tree couldn’t get any more complicated or dysfunctional! 

Michelle: Taking her son away by erasing all memory of Regina is already pretty awful, I'm having a hard time imagining what could be worse than that for Regina. 

Robin: Regina's lost more love on this show than anyone else; I can't imagine anything worse she could go through. Maybe Zelena's going to try to kill Henry. But what that would have to do with Snow White's baby and Rumpelstiltskin is beyond me.  Anyone else think Rumpel is Zelena's father? He and Cora did have kind of a thing...

Any ideas what happened to Neal?

Jim: Didn't they think that Neal might now be a simian of the winged variety? 

Gareth: I thought maybe the Wicked Witch might be holding him hostage, but that cage had Rumple’s name on it. Is Neal still in another realm? Was he killed while back in the Enchanted Forest? Has he turned Dark? Is he a flying monkey? So many possibilities. 

Michelle: Definitely turned into a flying monkey. But I haven't figured out why, unless it's just so Zelena/the Wicked Witch can build an army in Storybrooke. 

Robin: I'd say he's a flying monkey. Very soon to literally become the monkey on Emma's back.

Ready For a Fight
Looks like everyone in the Fairy Tale world is ready for a fight on Once Upon a Time. "Witch Hunt" is the 13th episode of the show's third season.

Would you rather Henry remember his family or stay in the dark?

Jim: I REALLY want to see Regina give him a kiss on the cheek and it bring back all his memories. I think it would show everyone how much she truly loves him. 

Gareth: I quite like the role reversal with Henry and Emma at present. Long term though, we need Believer Henry back. 

Michelle: He absolutely needs to remember his family. Sure, they've been through a lot but I think it would be much worse not to remember all the people who love you. 

Robin: He absolutely needs to remember.  He spent the last half of the season being borderline annoying, he can't spend the rest of the season being useless!

What was your favorite quote from this Once Upon a Time Season 3 episode?

Jim: I loved Snow and Grumpy's exchange about the witch: Are we talking east or west? One you drop a house on, the other you toss a bucket of water at.

Gareth:  Grumpy: Are we talking east or west?  Regina: Does it matter?  Grumpy: One you drop a house on, the other you toss a bucket of water at.

Michelle: When Emma showed surprise that the Wicked Witch was real, Hook replied with: "Says the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming."  Classic!

Robin: This one... Emma: "That sounds a lot like the monster that attacked me in New York."  Hook: "You mean the monster you were going to marry." OUCH.

What was your favorite scene?

Jim: I adored seeing Regina and Robin Hood spend time together. I really want to see Regina redeemed and for her to get her happily ever after with him.

Gareth: Loved the showdown between Regina and Zelena. Zelena's threats seemed to put fire back into the Evil Queen. She now has something to focus on and somebody to destroy! The scenes with Regina and Robin Hood were excellent as well. Also loved the scenes between Emma and Regina. I can totally see why SwanQueen has such a loyal following. 

Michelle: I really liked the scene between Emma and Regina after we found out they were working together. I've been so hoping that we're going to see Regina bonding with her "family" and for a minute there, I thought she had gone all evil again. Granted, I know she basically promised to go Medieval on her half-sister, but I don't mind if she uses her bad side to battle evil.  

Robin: I absolutely loved the revelation that Regina and Emma were working together, because I was already yelling at the TV when they all turned on Regina in the town hall. That was the best of surprises.

I have a bad feeling about the moment Zelena touched Snow's stomach....she did that for a reason.I think she wants a baby, why? how? I just remember what Aurora said to Philip: she was afraid Zelena would hurt/take their unborn child, if they did not tell her the Storybrooke crew had returned As for Neal? Last we saw, he was going to his father's castle w/Belle, who by the way had more chemistry w/Neal in those two minutes, that she has had w/Rumple (I never liked them together, but Robert Carlyle always sold it when they were being torn apart) But I predict that he is either dead, or will die at some point this season as he losing relevance already and we just started part 2 of the season

I think Hook knows something about Neal. I am beginning to think Neal may have cast the curse or been involved somehow. How did Hook get to our world? The Jolly Roger has only travelled between worlds by use of magic beans, Pan's shadow, or the Pegasus fleece. Henry not knowing the truth sets us up for a big moment of him discovering the truth. He cannot be left in the dark forever. There were some great quotes in this episode...but my favorite was when Henry asked Snow why she was in prison and she answered, "Banditry." I enjoyed the looks between Emma and Snow during that whole scene. Jennifer Goodwin's comedic timing was spot on with the delivery. I also enjoyed Regina's line, "Bring it, Greenie!". I get the feeling Zelena is a bit sensitive about her green skin based on her comment telling Regia she was rude.

i definitely think Neal cast the curse somehow...

I think the fact that the people in Storybrooke are so accepting of Neal as flying monkey tells me that it's a red herring. And the fact that his absence was mentioned more than once says that his fate is very important to the story. A couple of things that the producers said in interviews--that the seeds of an important story arc were sown in the conversation between Neal and Belle in NYC Serenade, and that maybe the person who cast the new curse may be the same person who sent for Hook--makes me think that Neal is the one who actually cast the curse. Just a hunch, but one I can't shake.

1. I think Zelena's going to try her best to literally take everything away from Regina, from Henry, to Regina's magic, to Robin Hood. Anything that will help Zelena feel like she got the life she always felt she deserved... Though I think destroying Regina's happiness is not her real motive. 2. I'm thinking he was somehow involved in the process of bringing back *SPOILER* Rumplestiltskin, and that he probably paid the price for that type of magic. 3. Yes, of course Henry needs to get his memories back. He seems so... Incomplete without them.. Playing video games instead of reading his book, not really interacting with anyone in storybrooke. 4. There were so many good ones in this episode and you guys got most of the ones I loved, but you missed what was probably my two three favorites: "Almost harvest time and you can't remember the planting? That's bad luck mate" - Hook ; "you were gonna marry someone?" - Prince Charming " Did you just miss the part where I said monster?" - Hook ; and finally "you feed the madness and it feeds in you." -Rumple. Love love love these lines :)
5. As for my favorite scene... It's probably the one where Regina is explaining her decision about the sleeping curse. "It's not an end; it's an eternal middle... And the only reason I would want to wake is my son." SO MANY FEELS! Lana totally owned this episode.
