Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

Really good episode, though not completely surprising - I actually thought they might do something like that for Pan's backstory. Like how effectively he played Henry though, and his little bait-and-switch on Rumpel.

One thing though: moonbending to "remove your shadow?" Rolled my eyes a bit there, since the shadow's obviously a metaphysical thing (not to mention the torches would still cast shadows). Still, no big deal.

Yeah, that didn't make any sense. Rumple was still casting a shadow in the few seconds before talking about the protection spell keeping out people with shadows, so it really has to be a metaphysical thing. *shrugs*

I agree that Pan is the best actor on the show, by the way.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

Awesome! I didn't see it coming. This is probably the best episode of the season.

I liked the part when Neal told everyone about the prophecy. The expression on Rumple's face when he realized he didn't stand a chance against the group, not that he was really out to hurt Henry.

Rumple's father was a pariah, a gambler and a drunk who was not cut out to be a parent. At least he knew that about himself. Rumple's childhood wasn't exactly easy, and now I see how he turned out just like his own father.

I assume that was Marilyn Manson doing the Shadow's voice.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

I was shocked that Peter Pan was Rumple's father. I thought that they were going to be brothers.

C'mon ABC...no one really thinks Henry is staying dead. 2 weeks for the next episode? Argh. Just 2 more episodes before the big three month hiatus...

There are 3 episodes to go, not 2. Think Lovely Thoughts was Episode 8 of 22, and Episode 11 of 22 is the midsearon finale.

I did not catch onto Pan being Rumple's father until the magic started swirling around dear old dad. Then, it was an oh crap moment. Now we know why Pan can push all of Gold's buttons so well.

The young man playing Pan is fantastic. I assume he will have to vanquished but I will miss the actor once his time on the show is done.

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.
And instead of a cork there's an hourglass

That was an amazing episode. The twist shocked me as well, and it was interesting to me that the Shadow existed before Pan. I wonder if the women Rumple is staying with turn out to be anyone notable.

I thought the shadow bit was a bit dodgy as well, but I guess I can let that slide. I loved the tension between Henry, his parents and Pan and how it all worked out. I can't believe it's 2 weeks until the next one!

I kept constantly looking for a third woman as I expected them, since they were spinning, to be the Fates or some variation thereof like Orddu, Orwen and Orgoch.

Loved Rumpel's backstory and the twist. Also really loved the two actors they cast to tell that story - the one playing his father kept doing a wonderful version of Rumpel's own freaky squeaky laugh - loved that Rumpel apparently got that from his dad - and the young boy they cast as young Rumpel was amazing and heartbreaking. Every time he welled up with tears, I wanted to cry too - terrific performance. Hope they bring him back again. Loved that both actors had Scottish accents too, to match Carlyle's own natural accent.

Yeah, assume they are witches of some sort or other, just haven't come down on good witches or bad ones yet...

Well... Rumple has been many things, perhaps he is also one of the Fates?

Maybe they were two of the three witches from MacBeth.

Variation on a theme (3 Fates, 3 witches/wise women), but would work given that they seem to have confirmed the Scottish background of Rumpel based on the accents of the father and young Rumpel.

And ooh, wouldn't a Shakespeare-realm be fun?

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

Really enjoyed the episode. I didn't expect Pan to be Rumple's father until he started talking about having to be a child for Neverland's powers to work on you. I'm very curious to see where they are going from here.

"Once Upon a Time" co-stars Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas have a little one on the way.

The actress is pregnant with the couple's first child, her rep confirmed to People on Wednesday.
Since Snow mentioned wanting to have another baby they'll right the pregnancy into the show.
