She's in that new show "Believe", but I don't know if that's also filmed in BC or LA.

Why didn't Robin know about the Wicked Witch taking up residence in the castle?

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

Poor writing, mostly. Need to build drama/mystery, and if the characters actually communuicated what they knew, they'd be able to solve it in an hour vice a season. Same problem Lost suffered from so badly; they knew everything they needed, just would never tell each other anything.

Robin passes this along, and then they just go grab a squirt gun or bucket of water and take care of it in about 5 minutes. Since they need it to last the back half of the season, we'll get all kinds of silly twists and turns first while no one shares their part of the knowledge.

If not Robin, Aurora could have passed along that tidbit just as easy. Or just handed them a bucket of water for when they get there...

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

Why would a group of nomadic 'outlaws' (figuratively if no longer literally) be privy to information about the WWotW, especially if she was keeping her activities secret as much as possible, which seems to be the case?

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

Shouldn't all the Storybrooke residents know how to kill the WW after seeing The Wizard of Oz at least once a year for the last 30 years?

Nomads are usually pretty good at knowing the scuttlebutt and what's going on in the area, so would imagine they'd have an idea. And it's tough to be an outlaw when the residents of the kingdom are all AWOL. As the only people IN the kingdom, odd to have no idea what's going on with the other other residents.

Have to imagine that it doesn't exist, like all zombie movies don't know about zombies. Either that, or they will specifically try it, and it'll turn out to be a bit of a movie shortcut, and no effect on the witch. More likely to do that route, so they can play it as a joke. Swan tries it, she screams, then starts laughing and shrugs it off as bad PR.

I think it would make the most sense if Swan, or Neil, or Henry knew about her. The first two because they grew up outside of the closed off bubble of Storybrooke which may not have ever heard of The Wizard of Oz or other movies/stories.

Henry because while he grew up in Storybrooke he currently spent the last year in the outside world so he may have encountered it there.

Otherwise as you said it could simply not exist at all. Like how nobody on TWD ever refers to a zombie as a zombie or reference back zombie movies.

Did anyone else think it was weird that Emma asked how they knew they were gone a year and they did the reveal of Snow being pregnant? It didn't occur to Emma that they could have simply looked at the date?

The pregnancy is real. The writers decided to write it into the show. Why not showcase it?

The calendars may all be reading what they said when the Charmings left a year ago. Before anyone thought to log onto a computer/internet to confirm a date, I suspect Charming and Snow would have already noticed her pregnancy.

"No, I think I'm pregnant, David. And look, our Facebook Page says it's been a year since we left Emma and Henry behind"

It'd be for an interesting twist if they DID throw water at her...and it didn't work. Then she just laughs and says they watch too many movies/read too many books.

Fully expecting that to be the case, that's why I brought it up

I agree, she probably has to die from fire instead.

Maybe they can say "Damn, that worked in 'Signs', because i hate how stupid that movie is.
