Hilary give me all your thoughts about this episode !! I need to know what you thin and your predictions O wise one ! :D
I WAS TRYING TO GET MY THOUGHTS TOGETHER ENOUGH TO DO A SMARTASS GUIDE TO THE EPISODE SO I GUESS THIS WILL BE IT
no, i am not over both emma and killian trying TLK with each other, i probably never will be, i want to send adam and eddy a bill for my bruised feelings
I NOW FULLY EXPECT IT TO WORK THIS HALF SEASON OR AT MOST THIS SEASON OR I AM KICKING THE SHIT OUT OF YOU EVIL BESPECTACLED MOTHERFUCKERS, MY AIM IS TRUE DON’T TEST ME
aaaaaaand i predicted killian not being down for emma’s seduction attempts and trying to pull away to get her attention and my poor bb drinking by himself in the diner, my opinions on belle are well known but at least she came to offer him support sooooo yay (charming literally your mate is sitting there alone, GET OFF YOUR DUFF AND DO SOMETHING?)
on that note, as shown, dark swan isn’t mad at hook and henry and wants them with her; this will continue to be her weakness as stated by jmo and will lead into saving her
the regina-trying-to-be-the-savior stuff was a bit ham-handed, but i think it made the necessary points. we had that scene with regina lashing out and blaming rumple, then like 5 minutes later, dark swan telling her that that’s her problem – always blaming other people, not accepting that in this case, regina WAS the one who asked for the magic to save robin and it WAS hers to pay. we had sir percival reminding regina of her evil past and regina having to face up to it, we had dark swan basically laying it out to her straight – emma was harsh but she wasn’t wrong.
i loooooooved sq brotp this episode. not a fan of regina using the dagger to control emma (neither was emma) but she did it for the right reasons – even if it was later undone by her request to have emma save robin, it also drew the right contrast. the first time regina didn’t ask – the second time she did. regina’s character journey is about wanting to be a hero but learning what a hero has to do. the more she moves away from her old self, the way she lets other people help her, the more she acknowledges her past mistakes, the more she is rewarded. it’s pretty obvious and open and i just really love seeing it unfold.
this does mean regina is being set up for a considerable role in dark swan becoming fully dark, as she is clearly the person emma blames the most (as well as her parents) – but it’ll be repaired and redeemed.
(still not sure how i feel about “if anyone saves this town it’ll be you”, but i am going to reserve judgment until later)
on that note, CAN ZELENA JUST STAY SHUT UP FOREVER, I MAY HAVE UGLY CACKLED WHEN REGINA DID THAT
CHARMING TEACHING REGINA HOW TO DANCE. I CREY. I LIVE FOR CHARMING/MILLS FAMILY TBH AND CHARMING OF COURSE IS THE PERF SON IN LAW AND THEY’VE COME SO FAR AND WAH.
EMMA AND SNOW GETTING READY FOR THE BALL AND COMING DOWN THE STAIRS TOGETHER AS KILLIAN AND CHARMING ARE LIKE “DAMN THAT’S MY GURL”
EMMA AND KILLIAN DANCING AT THE BALL
REGINA AND ROBIN DANCING AT THE BALL
henry and violet and charming playing wingman was actually adorable????
the dwARVES OMG they realise how ridiculous once upon a time is and were making fun of it the entire time, it really brings a bit of comic lightening to a quite dark storyline
the guardians of the galaxy moment was LOL, but i also enjoyed it, because literally what is the point of disney owning marvel if you can’t do that kind of thing
i loved oq this episode – they were just so solid and warm and supportive and this is what they should have been instead of green green foolery
guinevere is ABSOLUTELY shady, or she and arthur are co-shady, but yeah
the price of excalibur being repaired is a life, we’ve had all these nods to greek mythology – the fury, charon the boatman coming to take robin before being thwarted by said guardians of the galaxy moment – so yeah, i definitely suspect the underworld is coming
have we cried about cs yet
i think we have
well let’s cry more
it’s only 2 episodes in and i want my fluff back, i have grown weak
