I guess I should add that Henry needed saving only because Regina didn't love him, therefore could not be a good mother to him, despite her keeping to public standards for physical care and comfort.
Like I said, you were misremembering or misunderstanding something. The only reason she let Regina take Henry was because she did believe her when she said she loved him. Otherwise there was no way in Hell she was going to let Regina be his guardian. She still recognized that Regina was an evil bitch and wanted to get Henry away from her, but she didn't suspect that Regina would try to harm him in anyway because of that belief.
Emma wasn't letting anyone be a guardian, Henry was legally adopted and she had no legal rights and she knew it. Nor did she want to take Henry at first. The scene showed Emma changing her mind about staying in Storybrook. Being an evil bitch means nothing about being a mother.

I didn't say anything about "legal guardian." You're also twisting the timeline a bit in your response. If we go by your timeline, there was no point in her even bothering to ask Regina the question since she didn't give a whit's end at the time.

This was a great episode. I loved that Whale is indeed Dr Frankenstein (although the closest they came to saying so was calling him "Victor").
Nah, his laboratory assistant (Ygor?) addressed him directly as "Dr. Frankenstein" at the very end . . . .
No kidding? That got by me. I'll have to check it out.
And you were quite right, he did. Pretty cool.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

I'm not too sure if that has an answer, Mr. Adventure.

- It was a so-so episode. I did notice that Portland, Oregon looked awfully similiar to Vancouver, BC. In fact the whole Vancouver, BC scene looked... exactly like Vancouver, BC.

- The whole thing about Mulan and Princess Aurora seems... a bit not well developed. I would like more stuff about Mr. Gold and maybe Prince Charming as Acting Sheriff. Somehow Snow White doesn't seem that of a strong character in the whole "let's get back to Storybrooke" quest.

So, will Henry's father now make for Storybrooke?

What in the world could have August have had in that box?

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Gotta hand it to Emma. By my reckoning, it's only been a day or two since she found out that all this magic/fairy-tale stuff is real and now she's climbing beanstalks and fighting giants alongside Captain Hook.

Not sure I could adjust that quickly!

I was also amused by Snow and Aurora bonding over their past afflictions. Maybe they can form a Sleeping Curse Survivors support group?

August is officially terrible at the whole watching over Emma business. He got the gal sent to jail.

I for one cannot wait for that convo. "I was doing it for your own good..." Bam! Emma whips out the gun and shoots him.

I'm pretty convinced that he's Bael (the similar mops of hair cinched it), and what was in the box was some proof that August knew, too. The evidence was less about convincing him that magic was real and more about revealing that they're both from the same world.

As for him meeting Emma so randomly; fairy tales are all about coincidence.

Yea ever since it was shown Bael was sent to this world I figured that's how it would turn out because they you have Regina, Charming, Snow, and Rumple all linked together by family.

Charming & Snow are Emma's parents and Henry's grandparents, Regina is Henry's adoptive Mother and raised him in Storybrooke, and Rumple would be Henry's Grandfather.

The bigger question is if he is Bael does August know who he is? I would think he had to have some idea he was from fairytale world in order to 'see' magic. He also did not seem confused/freaked out/surprised at all by magic either so perhaps he has all his memories and was just dumped into this world by the portal with them.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

OK, my memory stinks, so help me out. Last season August called someone outside Storybrooke. Was it the same actor that played Emma's Ex from this past episode?

ETA: some googling says no, but he was the same man from the opening scene in the episode "Broken".

Don't forget that Regina is technically also Henry's step-great-grandmother.
