Very true, Lucy. In previous iterations of Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft is usually shown as someone with much greater influence politically than his brother; either overtly or covertly. Mycroft knows how to work the system. Regardless of how Sherlock feels about him, Mycroft gives his brother information so he can protect himself. He's never tried to harm him. If you think about it, a successful restauranteur would be a good cover for a British intelligence agent. He could travel the globe under the guise of searching out ingredients & dishes for his business.
Red had 3 daughters. He makes personal comments to Liz all the time. You think she would do her research into his family & make a few back so she could gain some control & leverage in this relationship. It's not rocket science. It's self-defense against a known criminal. I'd expect Jane Alexander to do it.
The FBI vets its employees EXTREMELY well. At least, the real FBI does because of the nature of their work. They would have done a DNA profile of Liz in her basic application to the Bureau. Being adopted would have made that issue more important to them since she would be unaware of her "real" origins. That would have flagged a match with her "father's" DNA if he had been in the military, which Red was; especially if he then became a criminal in the Most Wanted database. You're right that Red can make people disappear. But, if he can manipulate a criminal database so easily, why does he need to ask for access to it from the AD? Entertaining show. But, sometimes the easiest pieces don't add up.
Ridiculous comment. It's been violent & disturbing from the premiere episode! That's why it's a hit...because it's similar to the shows found on a cable or pay tv. I get that it isn't people's cup of tea. But, come on...equally disturbing situations are found all the time on LAW & ORDER: SVU, CRIMINAL MINDS, BONES or ELEMENTARY.
I think the purpose of the entire conversation was as Ichabod stated - that we don't know people as well as we think we do. In the writers' zeal to prove their point, plus knock Crane's image of Jefferson off its pedestal, they just threw the information about Sally Hemmings at Crane without any context.
Just FYI to the reviewer, Carissa...Thomas Jefferson did NOT cheat on his wife with Sally Hemmings. Sally Hemmings was born during the marriage of Thomas & Martha Jefferson and would have been 9-11 years old at the time of Martha's death from childbirth complications. According to most accounts, the relationship btw Jefferson & Hemmings began more than 10 years after Martha's death.
I wish (ha!) more people watched this series. It's become a lot stronger over time, and the inside references to OUAT are very clever. This was one of the best episodes yet IMO. Now we know why Jafar is so vicious...it's genetic.
Great point about Pan's own heart, Kimariyan! You're right that there was obviously an empty space in him so Henry's heart could fit right in. We've seen characters exist without hearts (Sheriff Graham, Aurora, Cora). But, as far as we know, it's not possible to cram two into one space. So...where is Pan's original heart, and why hasn't Regina caught on that this is the only way he can be killed?
OMG...Sherlock can be such a little brat when it comes to his brother. He can't seem to help using all his abilities in this petty game of oneupmanship with Mycroft - who is always so smooth, cool and unflappable. I did like how the episode ended very much. Will we ever see the father of these two men? And, who would they cast for such an important character?
I HATE PAN! Last season, it was a mother (Cora) who was the Big Bad. This season, it's a father. While I don't mind season-long arcs, that island was getting claustrophobic & monotonous. I'm glad they're all going back to Storybrooke because being in our world now means many more options for defeating Pan, among them a lot more angry mothers (who he seems to underestimate) and the tendency for little boys to want to grow up. Here's hoping we see that annoying little smirk wiped off his face very soon. Maybe he'll start to age before he can get back to Wonderland.
