Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

They've referred to The Enchanted Forest several times, but I've never been clear on if that was just the forest or if it's supposed to be the whole kingdom.
Really looking forward to another Ruby/Red episode.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

The first time I ever thought of the forest representing the entire place was when David found Jefferson in season two. Jefferson said that the enchanted forest was gone. It took me a minute to realize that they were not just talking about the place they got the wardrobe tree but the entire land.

What I don't get is how Wonderland, Neverland, and the Enchanted Forest all belched up certain persons and deposited them in a corner of the Enchanted Forest. Why did the curse haul in Smee but leave Hook?

Didn't Regina say that the curse just brought who she wanted to Storybrooke?

Another question then: Were the people left the people Regina liked? Or were they ones she really, truly disliked, who weren't even supposed to have company for their misery?

Maybe she just didn't care one way or another towards those people. Except for her mother of course...she hated her. Why not curse her too? Cora's too powerful?

^That was my interpretation as well. They were just the ones she never really cared about. I got the impression that their original homeland was quite a ways away from Regina and the rest of the people who wound up in Storybrooke.

There is zero indication that Neal Cassidy is supposed to be Baelfire, and given Bael's prominence in things vis a vis Rumple, it doesn't make sense for there not to have been even the slightest of hints dropped if he were to in fact be Rumple's son under a different name.
I think that there is indication that can be inferred. The episode where we found out Bael was lost in another world was inference enough. Henry's father is either some random white guy from somewhere in America, or he is Bael. The random white guy we met is a guy who had no roots, no family, would steal in a heartbeat, yet was capable of true love, loyalty, and had more than a pocketful of ethics. His character description alone marks him.

Nobody mentioned The Nightmares?

Nightmares and The Chosen Ones dreamcatcher in the same episode... hmm... Something is up with that?

^^ Good point about the dreamcatcher. I didn't even think of that.

Loved Ruby & Belle last night! Ruby's new BFF since Mary Margaret is AWOL.


I'd love to have been a fly on the wall when Red and Granny got back together after meeting up with Mom.

Loved the Red & Snow conversation about acceptance.

Regina was actually NICE last night!

Will Henry and Aurora save the day????

I liked Spencer too, and I think it's good that the old feuds are coming into Storybrooke.


The dream was intriguing, I'm looking forward to seeing what comes of that.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

It was nice seeing that they actually did have something in mind by introducing Sleeping Beauty to the story. My guess is that, aside from being a way for both worlds to communicate with one another, they'll use a combination of the sleeping curse and the dreamcatcher to get them all back to Storybrooke. Especially now that they have access to fairy dust to supercharge the dreamcatcher.

One thing that I don't understand is that the whole point of a bean stalk is to grow beans. So... why aren't they just able to gather them from the one remaining stalk? It's clearly still alive, so it should be growing them, no?

So was Ruby's mother Granny's daughter or daughter-in-law? I don't suppose it matters.

RIP Octavian - for short I will call you Gus.

It was nice to see Gold being kind to someone other than Belle. Foreshadowing that Neil is Bae?

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Gold does seem to have a soft spot for Henry so I'm still on the Bae is Henry's dad bandwagon. Another enjoyable Red/Ruby episode.

They should've taken Spencer/King George to the town limits and pushed him over the line so he'd forget...dude will cause trouble again even if he's locked up.
