my most anticipated episode yet the one i never thought i would see. the fact that this episode exists and rose mcgowan is in it makes me think the writers are reading my mind lol. eva eva eva, i cant stand her too fake. never liked royals and this episode shows why. dont want to say she deserves death but i have left sympathy for her now. this the best episode of the season and my second fave of all time. visually stunning and emotionally gripping. oh dreams do come true. but so do nightmares. my favorite character (cora) is no more. i was hoping and praying as she lay there in regina's arms something/someone would save her. i know magic cant raise the dead but it can turn back time. plus there is still much to know about cora's past so i hope we get to at least see more cora (both young and mature versions) in the enchanted forest. did anyone else catch that elated look on emma's face when she did that protection spell? magic is highly addictive let's hope emma is strong enough NOT to become dependent or an abuser of magic.
i guess i got to change my "give it a season" stance and just drop it after one episode lol. it was bad not because when it debuted but because they need to stop trying to redo lost. there was one lost we liked it for five seconds then it just got to silly and complicated just to continue to make seasons promising to explain something but never does. the problem with these mystery shows is that they will always need to mystery therefore never giving a big payoff to audience. america so need to get with the korean television program. one season, 16 to 26 episodes a complete story begining to end and then MAYBE you could do something like this. guess i'll never know what those watches was about. up next is decpetion and red widow
i was so waiting for cora to say "farewell sister" to Eva. i'm guessing that the king from the story of rumple and cora is snow's father and maybe his father made him marry someone of royalty instead of keeping his word and marrying the miller's daughter (cora). then rumple swooped in with promises of revenge and teaches her magic. the rest is history. i do have to say i never trusted the blue fairy. she always came off a little too arrogant, bossy and stuck up. i wanted to like her soooo much, she's the only good guy with any real power but she is so under used and sooo mean. remember the epiosde dreamy? she scoffed at dreamy/grumpy for saying that he was in love "dwarves dont love silly" maybe not but bitches get stitches you better watch yourself. she ruined nova's and dreamy's happy endings for her own selfish reasons of having things only her way and keeping nova under her thumb.
as for tamara i so thought she said her name was Tomorrow lol. im suspecting that she is from neverland (tigerlily to be exact). remember kids there are many ways to get to earth and there are many magically lands BESIDES the enchanted forest. oz, neverland, wonderland, etc. tamara being tigerlily would explain why Bae said its complicated. he saved her life and thus became her bridegroom. he's engaged because he HAS to be not because he wants to be
LOVED this episode. finally back to the good stuff! so no big shocker that Neal was Bae but i'm kind of disappointed and confused with how he views his father. when last he saw his dad he wasnt afraid of him or hated him. and it wasnt like rumple through him into the portal, not getting where all this hostility is coming from. now when rumple brought up that whole thing about using magic to take away his life experiences...that deserved a slap to face. how can someone so intelligent and crafty be so clueless? he tries so hard to grow and learn but that addiction to magic makes him take three steps back. hope the bae can forgive his dad. there is an episode coming up called "welcome to storybrooke" im hoping that the person we are welcoming is bae.
it was odd to see cora without her majestic robes. she looked gorgeous with her hair down but it just seemed off to not see her dressed in her witchy best.
i think we should all keep our eyes on the stranger. this is all set up for the next storyarc for season three, whoever he is talking to is going to play a major roll. either his girlfriend works for the media or is from one of the enchanted lands herself but something is definitely up him. mark my words.
i really feel bad for the show (and myself) with all these constant breaks. the ratings have taken a hit but hope that abc realizes that its their fault and not once upon times'. three more weeks until the miller's daughter, cora spotlight time!!!
Neal has got to be baelfire. i've suspected as much since the tallahasse episode, especially with the way august was able to convince him to stay away from emma. the thing is i wonder, did he lose any of his memories coming to earth or does he still remember the enchanted forest? this just makes henry even more special. grandson of rumple, snow and charming, adoptive son of the evil queen and son of the savior. what a legacy to live up to
just another filler, had a few moments (LOVE seeing Tess from smallville as Jack hope they show some more of her past) but overall nothing special. glad to just have them back, too many breaks abc!!! if this was NEXT week's episode it would have been a wait worthwhile. oh well
i also think the stranger is dr. whale's brother but did anyone notice his license plate? its a florida license plate and when i saw it i was so excited and hoped it would be emma's baby daddy but from the promo it doesnt look like him but maybe know they each other? it cant be a coincidence that they are both from florida, not in this show. hopefully next week will pick up cause this was a boring episode, not as bad as the ruby one but still uninteresting and its sad cause it had such promise and a couple of good/great moments
finally we're back lol. so happy my show is back on. great episode as usual. i found out that episode 16 is going to be called "the miller's daughter" so cant wait for that, i'm a HUGE cora fan. i was starting to like emma and snow this season after their adventures in the enchanted forest but back in storybrooke not really feeling them anymore. i'm back to my season one feelings for them which is "blah".
loved the episode but slightly disappointed. i so wanted to see Cora's rise to the throne of Wonderland. crossing my fingers they will still show that one day. seeing Cora become allies with some Wonderland characters and enemies of other and the battles she must have fought to become queen oh that could be an epic of its own. so many questions i have still that i hoped this episode would answer. how did she become queen? how did she get her hands on Henry (Regina's father)? from how adamant she was on jefferson making a new hat portal i have to assume she cant travel to other lands from wonderland on her own, so how did she do it?? cant wait for next year thought next episode's title doesnt have me excited. "Cricket Game"? i wonder who that could be about lol. "Croquet Game aka the Further Tales of Cora In Wonderland" would have been MUCH better. sigh. a girl can dream
to Elfje: Yes hook went to neverland
cora went to wonderland
as far as how they returned to the enchanted forest, that has yet to be explained. thats how the show goes. it gives you just enough tidbits to grab you so you can keep coming back for more. im sure by the end of the season we'll learn how hook got back from neverland dont know so much about cora as that is a longer tale to tell
loved the episode, back on track after last weeks bore. my theory on why hook could take Aurora's heart was because he is Cora's apprentice. they have been working together for a while and it only makes sense that he would seek out a teacher of magic to help him defeat Rumple (and who better then one of his former pupils, someone who rivals him in power?). i think you are overlooking cora's plan to say she wasnt smart enough to just take aurora's heart. she knows the weakness of those who are good, they will do anything to protect the innocent like she said in this episode. why waste the energy/power on taking her heart when can just use aurora as a hostage and still get what she wants. this is only episode 8 people, we have plenty of time for them to explain and explore character's histories. next week most likely will learn a little more of hook's journey for power and his cora connection as well as her time in wonderland, been waiting since last season for this one.
