Maybe they were two of the three witches from MacBeth.
*smacks self for not thinking of that*
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?
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.
Since Snow mentioned wanting to have another baby they'll right the pregnancy into the show.
Disney owns the rights to Gargoyles so perhaps we could have a Gargoyles type realm/kingdom. We have had Lancelot appear so the King Arthur/Avalon connection may well exist.
Gargoyles had arcs involving Avalon with the fairies from A Midsummer Night's Dream...Oberon/Titania/Puck (Who was disguised/or banished as a human and worked for Xanatos). Also had Macbeth and the witches who I think had cursed Macbeth and tied his bloodline to the gargoyle Demona so he couldn't die unless one of them killed the other(and thus themselves).
If the OUAT writers wanted to go on vacation they could just tap into the Gargoyles database and plots/backstories.
Ugh, that should be might write not right. Uhh...gotta proof read more.
I was never a huge fan of this show, but Season 3 is really drawing me in, and this latest episode really blew me away. I truly did not expect Pan to be Rumple's father and that is an awesome twist!
I do think it's hilarious that this season is about a small group of characters stranded on a mysterious magical island they can't escape which is terrorized by a black smoke monster though
Especially when you consider that the show was created by two of Lost major writers.
Did Peter Pan just give Henry his Goul'd?
Yep. Not a shocking ending. I had a feeling Peter Pan and Henry might have switched hearts.
Did Regina utter a Tron reference in tonight's episode?
Yes, but then the creators of the show were co-writers of Tron Legecy. Henry even played Space Paranoids back in the first season.
"I need a child, Gold, and I need your help."
"Well, I'm flattered but uninterested."
Very good episode, possibly one of the best this season, although I felt there wasn't really much that happened on the island besides confronting Pan and saving Henry (or so they thought). I liked the character dynamics and interactions. Bae was finally able to forgive Rumple at the end. It was nice to get a glimpse of Regina's past when she first adopted baby Henry. But it looks like Pan is here to stay, so better get used to it, folks.
Ah how did Regina get out of town during the curse? Wouldn't she lose her memory of everything if she crossed the line? Same with the mirror guy that was helping her get Henry?
Was nice to see some Regina backstory and shows she is really Henrys mother and not Emma. Regina actually was there to take care of him thru birth till now. She did the parent part, so easy for Emma to come in when most of the hard work is over.
Nice to see Regina rip that heart out of Peter Pan. About time she got to shine and do things her way.
The memory losing thingy was a side effect of the curse being lifted.
Besides, in the strictest sense, Regina was not cursed as completely as the rest of the town.
Great episode. I really liked seeing he beginning of Regina's time with Henry. I was not expecting the end until they trapped Pan in the box. It will be very interesting to see where things go from here.
Regina was never under the Curse's effect to begin with, so she can still use magic and stuff outside Storybrooke. The whole "Lose your memory" thing was a side-effect of the curse being lifted.
Funny thing is, we know Rumpel can't use his magic outside Storybrooke. But can Regina? We've never seen her do anything magical outside Storybrooke so we don't know.
That was really enjoyable. I liked seeing Regina actually be a mother to Henry, and it was quite nice getting a flashback to cursed Storybrooke (especially seeing Mary-Margaret soothing Henry). The interactions between Regina and Gold were great as always. I liked the bit at the tree as well, "I have no regrets mwahaha."
And Pan never fails...interesting to see how the actor who plays Henry handles the character of Pan. He has a lot to live up to!
So did they technically open Pandora's Box to let Rumple out?
I think Pandora's box has been opened 3 times now. Once to put Rumple in, once to let him out and then once to put "pan" in.
