    I assumed Pinnochio did it, especially considering he knew Baelfire/Neal was his father ad his connection to the Storybrookers.

    Pinnochio is basically this show's wizard, isn't he? Can't explain something--Pinnochio did it!

    In this case, though, there's a reason to suggest it, since he was supposed to be Emma's "Guardian/Protector" in the Real World.

    Is there a reason to believe Owen wouldn't have seen the town if he had crossed the town line?

    That wouldn't make much sense, since there's a road going right through where Storybrooke is supposed to be. Presumably, cursed Storybrooke could see the outside world, and possibly even enter it, but no one from outside could enter. Owen standing at the edge of town was done for drama, not because if he took a few steps forward, he'd have magically seen Storybrooke.

    The only reason Owen and his father found Storybrooke in the first place is because they were within its boundaries when it was formed in our world.

    the kid increasingly annoys me this season with his whining.

    It wasn't one of their best episodes, but I enjoyed it overall. It was kind of cool seeing the beginnings of Storybrooke. I wasn't at all surprised when the kid turned out to be the car accident guy, while I didn't think of it right away it was pretty obvious once it was revealed.
    I'm curious where they are going with the darkness on Snows heart. I wonder if that would be reversible?

    No doubt it will be cured with some combination of magic and love, once she actually tells someone about it.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    I don't want to see Snow White turned back into a nicegirl until after I've seen her darkness turn into the ability to use magic and take out a few aircraft carriers, and then confront the president in the oval office.

    I'm assuming that Owen drove up and down that stretch of road all the time looking for Storybrook and saw dick. The town was invisible and immaterial to the outside world with some exceptions.

    yeah, in fantasy stories with magic and no rules, there's less of a "well how will they resolve this?" question.

    Magic spell, magic object, power of love, etc. all possibilities

    Shouldn't that be "Kneel before Znow"

    Glad they're not focusing it on a recast Mad Hater.

    Limiting it to 13 Episode Story arcs every season, I think is a good idea. A Full 24 or 22 episode season might be overkill/oversaturation. Angel and Buffy having full seasons at the sametime was a bit too much, as was having 2 Series with Full seasons of Star Trek (TNG/DS9 together was OK, but, after TNG ended it became oversaturated)

    I'm all in on this spinoff, and would love to see ABC do what The WB never did with Buffy and ANGEL and pair both it and Once together on the same night back-to-back.

    WB pretty much couldn't, since it didn't air Buffy. As I recall, Buffy aired on UPN, while Angel aired on WB. Why would two competing networks agree to work out their schedules knowing that whatever they do, it will take a guaranteed hour away from themselves?

    Buffy switched Networks in the last couple/few seasons. They started on the same Network, though.

    And has anyone notice that Zelenka has been turned into a fish?

    Probably Mrs Zelenka. But she may prefer him that way.
