Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

I really liked this episode. I enjoyed the stuff dealing with the revelations in the cave, and it was really nice to get back to Storybrooke. I did not expect the Wendy/Darlings twist, I'm very curious to see where they are going with that. I wonder if they'll stick around in Storybrooke now. It's been 200+ years since their first encounter with Pan, so they can't exactly go home, unless they introduce time travel, which I doubt. I hope this wasn't the last we see of Ariel, I like her.

I love Ariel. She's so nice and bubbly and gorgeous too. JoAnna Garcia Swisher was perfectly cast.

Yeah. I liked her on Reba too, so I was very happy that she was cast on another show I watch.

It was the mid 1800's at the earliest when we first saw Neal encounter Pan.


Haven't read the entire thread before posting, so am I late with a Gilligan's Island joke? Because that jungle looks like it was taken straight out of storage from the old show. The production needs to get off that set stat. It's destroying the show.

I've been assuming that the "solution" to stopping Pan was to force him to grow up.

But the introduction of Pandora's Box was an interesting, unexpected choice.

As I recall per the classic story, what's left in the box is "hope", which is indeed potentially the most powerful weapon of all. Is Pan doing what he's done because he lost hope? Will Rumple restore it to him via the box? Or is that too on the nose for this show?

I think it's likely they intend to trap Pan's 'evil' within the box, be that the person, or some evil essence in him

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

Count me in as a fan of the actor who plays Pan. Hopefully he has a good agent who can help him play a good guy...otherwise he could get typecast.


I am wondering if the "Henry will be Gold's undoing" is that Henry will undo" the Dark One persona/role, and Gold can be a good guy.

Yeah, that's the easy outcome. I hope they don't use it.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

Wasn't the prophecy more along the lines of there being a boy who would help Gold reunite with his son, and that boy will be his undoing? The seer never mentions that it's Henry or even a relative. Nor what the circumstances of the reuniting is (or which time they're being reunited).

You can't get much more reunited than running into your son again after he's died. And if anyone personifies the concept of a "boy" more than Pan, I'm not sure who that would be.

The prophecy doesn't specifically mention Henry, but he fits all the parameters of it.

The point I was trying to make is that he's not the only one who fits the parameters.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

^ You're right, and there IS a possibility that Rumple is wrong about Henry being the one the Seer's prophecy mentions, but there's been nothing at this point to suggest that such is the case, and so all we as an audience have to go on is Rumple's conviction that the prophecy refers to Henry.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

And prophecies usually are misinterpreted. For once I'd like people to not get tricked by a prophecy

Whoever the prophecy is talking about I can't image they'll actually kill off Gold, Robert Carlyle is pretty much the best thing about the show so unless he wants out or he's super difficult to work with or something I can't imagine the producers will get rid.

Does anyone else kind of want Snow & Charming to stay in Neverland?

You have it backwards. There's been tons to suggest it may be someone else. All we have is Gold convincing himself that it's Henry, and him going around telling everyone that it's Henry. Nevermind that he hasn't actually been reunited with his son, nor that he's been "undone." Nothing about the prophecy has occurred yet, nor has Henry been any kind of threat to him in any way, shape, or form.

Pan, on the other hand, is a boy who can easily "undo" him, and one who can reunite him with Neil courtesy of being both a common enemy and proof that Gold is putting someone before himself, one of the biggest criticisms Neil has had about his father from the very beginning.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

Interesting episode, found out Pan's back story.

What I think is interesting is that once again an island is controlled by a black shadow monster.
