There's also a theory going around that he's Dr. Frankenstein, which intrigues me.

"Whale" as in "James Whale," the director of the original Karloff film.

Ooh, I like that idea! Very interesting indeed. I just took that movie off the shelf the other day so I could remember to watch it soon.

That was pretty good. Can't wait to see how Emma reacts to being in Fairytale land.

If Emma had trouble believing before, now that she been sent into a fairytale, should prove enlightening.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Loved it! Definitely cements the show's place on my favorite shows list. I didn't expect the twist with the preserved part of the Fairy Tale world, but I was wondering why Mulan, Phillip, and Aurora didn't seem to be in Storybrooke. I didn't think the stuff with Henry not wanting them to kill Regina was that out of character. No matter what she's done she was still the woman who raised him as her son.
I like the Bluebeard idea for Wale, I hadn't considered him before.
The mention of the Whale from Pinocchio does bring up something I was wondering about. Do you think we'll see more non-human Fairy Tale characters in the future? I would be curious to see how they'd handle The Three Little Pigs, or Goldilocks & The Three Bears.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

^^ I'm wondering what has become of Pinocchio.

That was pretty good. There's a few new mysteries to be answered. Magic works differently in Storybrooke and Emma had to touch Regina to get the hat to work-- so does that mean magic won't work with Emma gone? Also, is the hat destroyed? And Regina thought they didn't go back because there was no place to go back to-- but there was, so why didn't they go back?

I'm looking forward to see how this dual-dimensional storyline works out.

Possible. But I don't remember the whale being a smarmy womanizer . . . .
Maybe he was a sperm whale.

Emma seemed to have jumpstarted Regina more than acting as a magic battery. Regina did the vine trick after Emma had disappeared into the hat.

^^ Good point. And Rumpy was able to summon the wraith without any problem, so I wonder what that jump start was all about.

Also am I missing something - why did Regina not know who Jefferson was?

I actually took that more as Emma shouldn't know who Jefferson was, so Regina was pretending, though maybe something is up and Regina really didn't know who he was.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Several things left me scratching my head...
1. Was Regina just pretending to not know who Jefferson was? My money is on her playing dumb to throw Emma off guard. The Queen remembered the hat just fine.
2. Who was the guy at the beginning? He received a postcard that read "broken." Is it Bael? Is it Hook? If he is another fairytale character, how did he get out of Storybrooke? Thus far only August, Henry and Emma have been able to leave.
3. Who is Whale's prince, and who is Whale?

I loved it when Regina tried to smite the small folk and it did not work. That made me chuckle.

Belle went walking in a dress and heels in the midst of a demonic wind storm?

Will we see August or Jefferson this season?

The theory is that he's Victor Frankenstein. Online stuff says mentions he has a "God Complex", "Needs to be the Victor", "Sparks will fly".

And also, Doctor and...Whale.

Who directed the Universal Frankenstein movies?

EDIT: Rats, sorry Greg I missed out on your posts!

Since Bael was sent to (presumably) our world prior to the creation of Storybrooke with Regina's spell, it would make sense he'd land somewhere else in our world, not Storybrooke. So it would make sense if it is Bael. Then again, the writers do like to surprise us, so who knows?

In the meantime, I'm really hoping Jefferson got to reunite with Grace... but given that the writers also like keeping people on the show who love each other apart... I'm not counting on it!

If Whale is Dr. Frankenstein, then it would be amusing that he was the one who "stirred the villagers up to go storm the house where the monster lived".

Yes to both. One sooner than the other.
