Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

Agree it was a bit of a letdown after the fast-paced season opener. As much as I like keeping the focus on these major characters, I'm not sure we really needed another flashback to the Snow vs Regina standoff prior to the curse. I mean, we get it already-- they don't like each other.

I realize they were trying to create a thematic link with the present, but surely they could have found some slightly fresher territory to explore than that.

I also can't help but wonder why either Regina or Rumple don't just use their considerable power to wipe out Pan and his lost boys in one fell swoop (or at least use their Force-choke power on him until he gives in). Or teleport themselves around the island until they find Henry.

Unless Pan has some kind of "magic dampening field" set up, this search should really not take that long at all.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

They used Hook (aka, the writers) to counter Regina's ability to teleport around. Apparently, doing so is somehow more dangerous than just stumbling into the same dangers with lots of stomping and caterwaulin' as they "sneak" through the jungle. He didn't say there was anything stopping her from doing so, just that doing so would guarantee she land in a pile of poisoned plants or some other dastardly danger of the island. Presumably, Rumpelstiltskin knows this as well, what, being just as experienced on the island as Hook is.

Idiotic, yes, but that's what the writers have decreed to be fact. Thus it is.

And I agree, the tedious flashbacks to the past to fill out an episode is really getting old, especially when its the same thing over and over. At least we get to see Snow with some hair. So there's that. (Why the fuck hasn't she grown it out since the curse broke? She looks ridiculously horrible with that 'do.)

Then again, even in the Enchanted Forest, I can't even fathom how Snow was supposed to be more attractive than Regina, either. 'Cause, damn. (I seem to have channeled Will Smith there at the end.)

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

Well as with the Kirsten Stewart movie, I think we have to accept that "fairest" applies to more than just her physical beauty.

I agree though, that is some damn unflattering hair she's got.

Anyone notice in the Rumpy/Belle scene on the cliff he wasn't casting any shadows? It just looked odd since everything else was.
That's because earlier in the show he cut his shadow loose, and sent it to hide his dagger.
Ah, makes sense, well I have to give them some credit then.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

A good episode overall, although I really could have done without yet another flashback to the Enchanted Forest. Especially because I'd much much rather have seen more of Neal, Mulan, Aurora, and Phillip.

Also, I'm getting a bit tired of Snow having to constantly remind Emma that she's her mother.

Dumb question; do we know what exactly Pan is going to do with Henry?

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

I thought this was a good episode. We got some interesting stuff with the Emma and Co. and Rumple. I've liked the arc of Emma having to accept who and what she is, and we got some good movement on that front here. They said before the premier aired that Neverland would force the characters to confront their pasts, and we definitely started to see that here. Apparently this stuff with Rumple and his father will be an ongoing thing at least for a while, because his father will be appearing later in the season.
I do agree that the flashbacks for this one were kind of meh. I understand what they were going for with the thematic link, but the storyline itself just felt unnecessary. It didn't really tell us anything about Snow that we didn't already know. It looks like next week's flashbacks will be a lot more interesting.
I wonder if we'll ever get any flashbacks for Aurora, Granny or any of the other Dwarves? They've all been in several episodes, but we really don't know much about their histories outside of how they relate to the other characters.

Re: Once Upon A Time Season 3

The clincher for me was the end. Pan told that Emma that Henry would hate her by the time she found him or something to that effect. I found that chilling. Henry has always been loving and accepting of her. What will that do to her if his love and acceptance is ripped away?
