Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Where the heck is August now? Did he just pop a postcard into the mailbox for Neal on his way out of town?

Why would he book it now that Gepetto knows who he is? Is he that ashamed that he botched the baby Emma watching?

LOL, that would be awesome to see the look on her face if he called her "Grandma"!

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.
I agree with it being Bael... and I suspect that what was in the box was the name Rumplestiltskin.

I think August was right to send Emma to jail for 11 months. It got her out of the cycle of crime/self that she was in, and set her on the road to redemption/Storybrook.

They clearly showed him still laying in bed, completely petrified now that he's returned to wood. He likely mailed the postcard while he was still able to move, or asked someone else to do so.

He sent the postcard to Neal post curse.

Also, didn't Gepetto head to August's room at Granny's only to find him gone? Gepetto found P's little hat.

He was momentarily shown in that state just a couple of episodes ago.

But after that episode Gipetto went to his hotel room and found no one there.

Meanwhile, note that the charming rogue with whom Emma goes on the road is named "Neal Cassady."

Poor Henry.

As if its NOT bad enough that his (adoptive) Mother is the evil Queen who murdered his Mother's boyfriend in Storybrook...

If Bael is his Dad then Gold is his Grandfather who murdered his grandmother in Fairytale land.

No wonder he needs a psychiatrist!

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

I thought this was an OK episode. The stuff with Emma and Hook in the giant's castle was fun, and I did enjoy getting to see some of Emma's past. I'm curious exactly what was in the box that made Henry's father believe August. It does seem a little suspicious....
Has anyone heard if we're ever going to get flashback's for Aurora and Mulan? They've played a big role in the season, so it would be nice to learn more about them.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

So, IF Bael is Henry's Father, do we start spelling it Bail?

I agree that Emma is adjusting well this Season. I think her "Scully-ness" last Season was appropriate, and I think they've scurried her along properly this season. I think they've done a great job of matching the storyline development to her growth in acceptance and "BadAssery"

Jorge was cool as the Giant

So...Next week's previews, is that a Ruby-centric story in Storybrook, or another Red-Centric story in Fairytale Land? It seemed to be Ruby-Centric in Storybrook, which is quite intriguing

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

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 really, really liked last night's episode. Jennifer Morrison was adorable as teenage, librarian-glasses-wearing Emma, and I loved that Neal breaking her heart ended up being the major factor in her becoming the cynical hard-ass she was in Season 1 and still is to a certain degree this season.

Regarding the preview for next week, here's some spoilers:

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

^^ I was wondering what would happen with Ruby after the curse was broken.

This episode cracked me up. It reminded me of the old Gilligan's Island episode where Gilligan dreamed about being Jack.

I was wondering how August could have sent the postcard, being all petrified; but I had forgotten about Gepetto finding the empty room.

Now I guess we can expect to have Henry's father show up in Storybrooke and August will have a lot of splainin to do.
