to Elfje: Yes hook went to neverlandcora went to wonderlandas 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.
too too fine
first episode of the season i didnt like. there were little cool tidbits (snow looking for a cabin in the woods for her and red, hinting at the fairy tale rose red and snow white; the history of red explored; the red room explained;) but overall kind of boring and the actress who plays red was overacting too much in parts. she is best when she is subtle but when she has to be scared, she plays it too wide eyed and the raising of the voice isnt needed to show concern or fear. hopefully she will get better. i couldnt help but think she would make a great wonder woman with a little more training under her belt. two weeks to wait to see cora return and just how henry is going to use his new "gift" to save snow and emma. that looks like a very good episode. i wonder if we will get flash backs of aurora or mulan's story in that episode?
theories galore. lets not forget that henry ate the poisoned apple which is based on the same sleeping curse as the one used on aurora. they obviously are looking at each other but what does the room represent? the only thing that we have seen so far that comes to mind is the room with all the portals that jefferson and regina enter through the hat in "hat trick". i think neal is either peter pan or baelfire but im leaning towards baelfire for now. that would be a twist if henry turned out to be gold's grandson. gold and regina would be related lol, delicious! if neal is a fairyland person then the book would be all he needs to convince him of who emma is, especially if he is rumple's son. but why did august keep the money? the kid really has conscience issues. why didnt they just cut down the beanstalk so hook couldnt follow them? major mistake on the girls part. it was interesting to watch this episode. i didnt know how an episode without storybrooke would work but it did. one of my favorite episodes and i am rooting for the happier emma to come back. she needs to smile more
another great episode. this is the only show that i love the villains as much as i love the heroes. there is so much dimension and facets to the personas of all the characters that no one is just plain black and white. there are shades of grey to everyone's moral compass and i love. the writers, casting director, director and actors for once upon a time really need to be commended for their awesome work. this episode shows why this has been my favorite show since airing:: its complex, fun, action packed, rich story telling, fantastic acting and great characters. until it comes i'm going to end all my rants the same: Peter Pan Peter Pan Peter Pan
FINALLY, a good, maybe even great, episode. this is what i have been waiting for all season. so made at emily for putting amanda in danger, i knew nothing good would come of it. i so wanted to jump into the screen and slap her a couple of times. both amanda and the baby could have died and for what? for information that she miraculously remembered at the end of the episode anyway. i wasnt suspecting padma before but now i am. why is she so interested in david clarke's investment check? and what is up with the guy going after the stowaway? is he working for the graysons or is there something special about the pub that we (and jack) dont know?
another awesome episode. love seeing more of cora. i knew she was lancelot when she came in at the end (they dont have cell phones and only mulan, aurora, emma, and snow where in the woods, how would he "hear" about the ogre attack?) but was surprised that she was being him the whole time. can't wait for the family reunion of regina and cora, i see an epic season finalely on the horizons. love all the family moments (emma and snow, charming and henry, hatter and his daughter). i hope we get to see more and more of hatter. i kind of feel bad for aurora. she's around all these strong women, she's going to have to up her game, maybe train with mulan? next week we go to neverland and meet hook and oh my does he look delicious. that is the hook i grew up with. forget the lost boys can i be a pirate in his crew?
Emily is not a hero. who has she ever saved? she has never shown any compassion ever. she is selfish, emotionless, arrogant. its only now in this episode they try to show a more compassionate side to her with her past but its too late for me to fall for it. after 20 some episodes of her being one way i cant buy her being anything else especially when is manipulating everyone around her, how can you even tell when its genuine? how can anyone root for especially how she is leading on like four guys, not returning the affections of any but at the same time ruining their chances with someone else? how she keeps mistreating amanda? amanda needs to pop that baby out so she give emily the what for
pleasantly surprised. i thought the actor would be horrible (im comic reader and he doesnt scream Oliver Queen to me, still dont get why they didnt get the guy from smallville but so be it). he seems awkward in the fight scenes and the narration but other then that i think everyone did a great job acting wise. they kind of lost me with some characters (calling Dinah Lance by her middle name Laurel? why? Merlyn who is a Green Arrow villain is now his best friend. if he later becomes his enemy that could be some good Lex/Clark drama)and the way they kept saying the name of the city especially in the first news report was annoying. we get it their in starling city (horrible name) but it will always be Star City to me. i wonder how he will be given his code name. will it be green arrow or just arrow? who will name him? who names are on the list? and his bodyguard is so going to figure him out if he keeps disappearing on him like that (out of a moving car? that's not suspectious at all Oliver). cant wait for next week when Kelly Hu comes on as China White.
