Once Upon A Time Season 3

Season 3 of OUAT starts tonight. This is one of my favorite shows, so I'm very excited for this.
Here's the description from Wikipedia:
In search of Henry, Emma, Mary Margaret, David, Regina, Mr. Gold, and Hook travel to Neverland, where they meet threatening mermaids. Meanwhile, Henry and another boy atempt to escape from the Lost Boys and Peter Pan. In the Enchanted Forest, a still-recovering Neal and Mulan embark on a quest to discover the fate of Henry and Emma.

This is my first time watching the show. Not sure what the deal is yet, but if I like it I may try to catch up.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

Why is Pan more powerful than Rumpel? Rumpelstiltskin seems very powerful and for him to know he will die cause of Peter Pan is weird. I don't know much about Peter Pan but never thought of him as magic powerful.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

^ Pan's not going to be Rumple's undoing; Henry is.

The fact that Rumple is afraid of Pan isn't meant to make him (Rumple) look weak,BTW; it's meant to make Pan look strong and scary.

Also, Adam and Eddy have said to throw everything you think you know about Peter Pan out the window because their take on the character is wholly unique.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

My favorite line of the premiere was Regina's "Fillet the bitch!" It really made me laugh.

As soon as that kid showed up to help Henry I knew he was going to turn out to be Peter Pan. Still the kid once he was revealed as Pan seemed really evil. Good acting on his part.

I'm glad that they killed off Greg and Tamara in the premiere. Once they got Henry to Neverland they weren't needed any more. I loved seeing them die because they were stupid, dangerous fanatics and annoying as well. They got what they deserved for not asking questions. They died of the dumbs.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

I thought it was great start to the new season.
Yeah, not going to miss Greg and Tamara.
I was pretty sure the boy who "helped" Henry worked for Pan, but I wasn't sure until the end if he was Pan.
I'm glad we're getting more with Mulan, Philip and Aurora, I liked them a lot last season. Aurora's got a very different look this season.
I thought the stuff on the boat was pretty good, and it'll definitely be interesting to see Emma & Co. actually trying to work together.
I'm very curious exactly what Pan and Rumpelstiltskin's history is.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

So we finally got our answer. When Neal said to Mulan that they are all fairy tales and they even made a movie about you Mulan.

Thank you thank you.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

Tamara is gone, but Greg will be back. They bothered giving him more backstory and some sympathy whereas Tamara got nothing. Also his "death" wasn't really a "death" like Tamara's was.

Though I don't think there was anything really wrong or bad about them, just that they weren't really meant to be characters (in Tamaras' case), just plot devices.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

Wow, thought that was a pretty damn good first episode. I can't say I was all that excited for the new season, but somehow the writers actually made me care about the show and these characters again.

The new Neverland setting (and finally getting away from boring Storybrooke) feels like a breath of fresh air, and also feels like a much more dark and interesting place than any we've seen before. And I like the tighter focus on just these characters (who are the only ones we really care about anyway).

And jeez, that Henry actor doesn't seem to ever age, does he?

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

^I agree with you, I'm glad they're out of Storybrooke and as much as I like the supporting characters I'm very happy that we seem to be focusing on the best ones.

I really enjoyed the episode, I liked the theme about belief and I thought all the stories were quite strong. I love the sniping that goes on between Regina and, well, just about everyone and Hook is a riot.

I'm also looking forward to Robin Hood playing a part in the new season.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

I like leaving Storybrooke, but I'm still annoyed - months later! - that two of my favorite characters (Red and Frankenstein) were left hanging after some really strong focus.

That said, really good opener. The Enchanted Forest stuff was my favorite, but the stuff in Neverland was definitely good too. I think the reason Pan can kill Rumpel so certainly is simply because they're in Neverland - his "turf" basically. Hope Robin Hood sticks around.

ETA: Are we gonna be doing a separate thread for "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" or just use this one?

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

I figured I'd do a separate one since it is a different series.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

I'm glad because I'm probably going to save Wonderland to watch when other shows are on break so it'll save me having to skip past loads of spoilers
