Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

I wonder if Lancelot is really dead.

Lots of nice moments in this episode, from Jefferson finding his daughter to Snow and Charming getting married by Lancelot just in time for Mom to see it happen.

And what's up with the vault? What all does Regina have stored down there? And will we ever find out who all those hearts belong to?

Ogres were cool, too.

I'm not sure Cora is to be trusted there. Remember, Regina told Rumple that Belle had died . . . .

That's exactly what I was thinking, or hoping. He's too good a character to restrict to flashbacks.

And if we have a Lancelot . . . where is Merlin?

I like how they sidestepped the religious connotations of "the cup".

And we still don't know who Dr Whale's "prince" is.

I liked Lancelot's reference to his full name "Lancelot du Lac"--Lancelot of the Lake--that he was "raised next to a lake."

My guess is that he was close to George and knows that Charming is a pretender.

Strictly speaking, Cora would have a vested interest in making sure no live Lancelot showed up to raise the issue of who was running the haven.

But you never know.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Really enjoyed this episode. I'm really liking the stuff in the modern fairy tale world. I'm glad they reunited Jefferson and his daughter.
I'm also very curious where they are going with Cora and with King George.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Eh.. I tried giving this another go this season to see if it improved from last and it hasn't. I appreciate the writers focusing on just a few of the same characters week-in and week-out compared to trying to juggle a bunch of them but I still find the flashbacks pretty perfunctory and boring. The stuff in Storybrooke is a bit halting and the overall storytelling is a bit aimless. More specifically in this episode I thought there was a lot of padding--the Ogres, Henry stealing the keys and going to Regina's vault only to have what I thought might be a pretty interesting turn of events go nowhere(plus I find it hard to believe Regina would let Charming know where her vault was), the whole flashback with Snow being unable to bear children was highly predictable and glacially paced, Jefferson's reunion was too brief and really lacked any emotional resonance.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

I have to admit I find myself a lot less interested in the "fairybacks" now.

To me the stuff happening in Storybrooke (with the citizens having regained their memories) and with the surviving characters in fairyland is MUCH more interesting at this point.

It's not like we really need any more backstory for characters like Regina or Snow. I think we know what makes them tick.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

^It's still one of my favorite shows, but I do have to agree that the flashbacks feel a little unnecessary at this point. Once Emma and Snow ended up in The Enchanted Forest, I was really hopping we would just jump between them and what's going on in Storybrooke. It wasn't to bad in this one, but I could see where jumping between the three different plot lines could get annoying if one or two start to get in the way of plot progression in the other/s.

True, but she might not be above stowing him away in dungeon or tower somewhere, 'cause that's just how evil fairytale queens roll . . .

I mean, if you just want to get rid of someone, there are probably easier ways than curses and poison apples and endless naps that can only be broken by true love's kiss or whatever. But evil queens never just whack someone when they can curse them instead.

Could Cora be the reason the curse did not take in this part of the kingdom?
