Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Originally I assumed she was Wendy, but with how the Dragon knew that her grandmother meant that much to her, she might be Wendy's granddaughter instead. Though I suppose Alice's granddaughter works, too, and would explain why Neil didn't really mention any familiarity with her looks yet.

Of those two options, Alice's story is really the only one that would lead me to think of someone becoming obsessed and bitter about those experiences, and passing that on to their children.

^They're doing a spin off show with Alice, so unless it's going to cross over with 60's earth, I doubt she could be the granddaughter.

This means that her motivations have to have been triggered by something that could plausibly have happened here, in the 'land without magic'.

I'm guessing they just couldn't keep Eion Bailey as recurring due to some scheduling issue, which is a shame. It was great to have him back, even in wooden puppet form. And I'm so glad Tamara is evil. LOL Sad but true, I'm now rooting for Neal/Emma. Though I may change my mind about that when Hook inevitably returns to flirt with Emma. LOL

I'm curious about who The Dragon really was though - an escapee from the EF through some other means separate from the curse? Neal likely wasn't the first person to land on earth from the EF. Someone had to write that OUAT book...
I was wondering if he was from the realm on the other side of the Chinese looking door that we saw in the hat. Or maybe from where ever Mulan came from originally.

No they are not. The creators have said they have no plans for a spinoff right now.

The episode was horrible. I felt like I was watching LOST. The characters were stupid, and it jst didn't feel like the old fun show I loved.

^When did that change? As of last week it was the big story that it would be a limited run series that would fit in between seasons of OUAT.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Really? I have never heard that, and I follow the TV news.

It came out weeks ago that they were going to do a spinoff with The Mad Hatter, but the actor is busy so they would recast. Someone asked the creators of the show, weeks ago, about it and they said they have no plans for a spinoff at this time, that it is too soon.

Maybe they were lying, or changed their mind again.

Any chance Tamara could be an existing non-fairy tale character completely messed up by having been sucked into a fairy tale world and now is out for blood? Like Alice or even Dorothy?

Not according to Mitovich.

Yep, your data is old.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Tamara is very interesting. Somebody from this dimension who is either a scientist or has access to cutting edge labs and techs who is obsessed with finding magic-- and has plans for it somehow. She's involved with Owen, but did his obsession trigger hers or do they just have a common interest?

The Dragon must be from Chinese folklore, but how did he end up on Earth like that?

I loved how Mary Margaret went out into the woods on a literal guilt trip and ended up giving August a pep talk. On the other hand, that smack she gave Gepetto seems to be foreshadowing....

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Given that Tamara was portrayed in a pretty sinister light, it wouldn't be out of the question for her to be using Greg/Owen just like she's using Neal.

I really like where the writers are going with Snow and this 'darkness on her heart' thing. It strikes me as being somewhat of a callback in some ways to the darker personality the writers briefly gave her after she drank Rumple's 'forgetfulness' potion.

Or, again because of the connection to the photograph and how much it meant to her as determined by the Dragon, she's the granddaughter of such a character. Wendy is still the top candidate for me.

And yes, that would make her both a completely original and completely human character, too.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Evidently, there is a Disney character called "Tamara." I didn't know of her because I haven't bothered too much with Pirates of the Caribbean.

She's a mermaid and according to the link, also called The Mermaid Queen. Ursula, anyone? Skin color and features aren't the same, but...

Disney wiki

Yeah, but none of the characters who have in our world for an extended period of time (other than Regina) haven't used their fairy tale name.
