(Or words to that effect.)

Thank you, Emma, for keeping it real.
Yea, that was great. And as soon as she started Your Mother... and then the Pause, I just knew she was gonna say "She's a piece of work". It also served to communicate "Now I understand why you became such a piece of work yourself" from Emma to Regina

If Regina is going to be redeemed, leaving Cora as the Big Bad and Hook as her sidekick, someone is going to have to invite her to the party sometime. I mean, everyone walked away from her. She's been trying and she just got left alone. I actually felt a bit sorry for her.

Yeah - I felt she deserved a little more of a that a girl than she got.

I liked Hook's little speech to Emma about being done with her. I think the guy was being sincere.

I want Gold to out fox Hook, but I also want to keep Hook around.

Yea, that really shocked me, I kept expecting someone, anyone, to say "You comin' Regina"?, and then it was made clear she wasn't invited when they said "See You Later". Lana did a really job showing the pain in her expression when they left her standing there by herself.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

I was slightly surprised that Henry blew her off, but it kind of makes sense-- it would probably never even occur to him at this stage that she would have any interest in socializing with them.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

And to be fair, while it's easy for us in the audience to go "Aaah, poor Regina, they hurt her feelings!", we should probably remember just how much hell Reginia has put them through over the years. Heck, by my reckoning, it's only been a few weeks or less, in Storybrooke time, since Regina tried to poison Emma, framed Mary Margaret for murder, murdered the hunky sheriff, locked Belle up in an asylum, etc. And that's not counting her various atrocities as the Wicked Queen back in Fairyland . . . .

As far as most of Storybrooke is concerned, they're like "Are you serious? You're actually worried about hurting Idi Amin's feelings? The woman rips hearts out with her bare hands, cursed the entire town, murdered her own father, and you want to invite her to a family dinner because, at the last moment, she decided not to risk killing Snow and Emma?"

I also think Regina has some more growing up... she needs to show compassion to someone other than Henry. She didn't try to save Emma and Snow, she tried to live up to the woman Henry wants to believe she can be.

Once she starts doing unto others, as she would do unto Henry, then she will win the right to walk off in to the sunset holding Henry's right hand while Emma has his left.

Hmmm.

Not sure who will have Regina's other hand...

Snow?

Remember... at one time a youthful Snow DID love the older Regina.

I'm surprised the show can get the actors it's getting, but I guess it's popular enough.

This episode was the first time I felt sorry for Regina. For once she was totally innocent and she was framed so well. Too bad the dog couldn't help her...

On the other hand, I keep waiting for Emma to put two and two together and figure out that Regina murdered Sheriff Graham last season . . . .

And, let's not forget, she had Snow's father assassinated as well.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

I thought Emma had realized that Regina killed Graham, but looked past it because that's what she'd like to do to a man who cheated on her.

Snow White isn't the one to really articulate this, but her father was a lousy husband to Regina. Morally speaking, that just gave Regina grounds for divorce. But in monarchies divorce is a life threatening, often life-taking proposition. Plus, ruling monarchs, being divine by blood, don't really get to resign, since they can't undo their own flesh. They're more or less forced in it til the death.

The oppressive Queen thing is really part of the job description. The notion that Charming and Snow White rule by inspiring unbridled love and radiating happiness down on the peasants has got to be the biggest fairy tale in the whole series.

No, the really hideous thing Regina did was sacrificing her father. Which is why "Henry" became so important?
