I remember seeing an interview before season 2 dropped saying the Voltron crew had invited a number of guest stars to appear on the show, but I’ve only heard about a couple of them. I was curious, so I went to IMDB to figure out who I’d missed. Here are some noteworthy guest stars you might have missed:
Episode 1: “Across the Universe”
Finn Darby and Theo Darby (sons of Rhys Darby, Coran’s VA) as the younger versions of Coran
Episode 2: “The Depths”
Blumfump - Weird Al Yankovic
Plaxum - Mae Whitman (voiced Katara in Avatar: The Last Airbender)
(voiced Opal in Legend of Korra)
Episode 4: “Greening the Cube”
Ryner - Mindy Sterling (voiced Lin Beifong in Legend of Korra)
so i know you're musical based but i saw the gotta blast audio u had wanted and someone made and i just wanted to tell u that christian slater actually guest starred as jimmy neutron's idol in Operation Save Jet Fusion so
So last nights episode showed me that I can still love this show with its bad writing, retconning, OOC behavior, and manufactured angst - all I need to be happy is for the writers to let these characters TALK - to slow down the plot and let them interact like an actual family!
When they do that it’s so, so good. And I’m willing to overlook A LOT to enjoy it.
When you don’t let guest stars and the villain of the week take up the entire 45 min, when you don’t have characters resolve their conflicts within the span of a single episode….when you give them time to FEEL something - it allows the audience to feel something too.
There were a BUNCH of plot elements that I could be salty about. But I won’t. I’m just going to enjoy the fact that the past few episodes have given me all I really want from this show as we march on to a season, or a series, finale - and that’s writing that reflects what the creators claim OUAT is about - love, hope, second chances, and FAMILY.
I was talking with a friend about an upcoming page for Closure and it reminded me of this thought I had a while ago, about how silly it is that Ridhais’ dialogue indicates that she doesn’t really know the Commander at all, despite claiming to have served in Orr and Maguuma as Trahearne’s guard. Although it really is just a continuity thing, it’s funny to imagine that, particularly in Ive’s canon, awkward shy Trahearne very purposefully tries to get Ridhais to go away whenever Ive comes back to the Pact. Or she’s just that oblivious:
Guest-starring the ever-dependable Devnet who catches absolutely everything. And will always troll in Ive’s favor.
- How the hell did she know what he looked like? He died when her father was young.
- Yes, Emma is upset that her fiance is burning his memories. Not that he’s responsible for the death of her grandfather…. Makes sense in Insaneville…er…Storybrooke.
- Are the hearts breeding?
- Are the two Reginas gonna make out?
- Okay, they just hug.
- But they definitely had sex during commercial break. Now, they’re cleaning things up.
- For god’s sake, LEARN TO LOCK YOUR DAMN SHOP, RUMPLE! Then maybe people wouldn’t be stealing your shit every other episode. This is also why you can’t sell anything, because they just help themselves to whatever they want!
- Um, Zelena, weren’t you conspiring with the Evil Queen a few episodes back?
- And again, who’s watching your kid? Did she go back to her crib at the Nun-Hut or is Granny babysitting both her & Neal tonight instead of being at her own restaurant that the hero-squad now uses as their hangout.
- Thus ends another long plot that could have been avoided if people would just listen to Rumple once in awhile.
- The Evil Queen & Robin’s date goes fine until AU-Rumple crashes their date and hauls their asses back to the dungeons.
- Ah, and there’s my favorite Fuck-Up. :) Gideon!
- And somewhere, Belle resumes her 8th straight day of searching for her son in the woods, stopping only to change outfits.

Anonymous said: I’m so confused, what is that instagram picture supposed to be?
I’ve decided that the Marvel Spies live in the tree outside my house and wait until I leave the house to post things! In case anyone missed it Colo posted THIS instagram picture this afternoon.
And that house is super iconic for TV and was the setting for a TV show in the 70′s/80′s Fantasy Island.
Many of you might not know the show but you do know this scene…
Why does this mean anything?
Well, we have a couple of factors in play.
First is the show Fantasy Island itself. On the show Mr. Roarke welcomed his clients to his island. Part of what made this show so fun is the guest stars changed each week and they would bring in many of the big stars of the day.
Visitors to the island would come to make their dreams come true….or fix a regret (yeah for reals). Though this little journey always came with a price (yeap for reals again). Starting to sound a little familiar?
It was just easier for me to pull from the Wiki Page for the show.
Roarke had a strong moral code, but he was always merciful. He usually tried to teach his guests important life lessons through the medium of their fantasies, frequently in a manner that exposes the errors of their ways, and on occasions when the island hosted terminally ill guests he would allow them to live out one last wish.
Roarke’s fantasies were not without peril, but the greatest danger usually came from the guests themselves. In some cases people were killed due to their own negligence, aggression or arrogance. When necessary, Roarke would directly intervene when the fantasy became dangerous to the guest:
With only a few exceptions, Roarke always made it quite clear that he was powerless to stop a fantasy once it had begun and that guests must play them out to their conclusion.
We’re in that Boat too. AIDA has set the world in motion and I highly doubt she takes time away from whatever the she is up too to intervene.
On the show the Fantasy more often that not turned into a morality lesson or a you had what you wanted all a long kind of thing. And during the run of the show a handful of guests did decide to live out the rest of their life in the Fantasy. Which we are also on the watch for.
Essentially many of the themes from Fantasy Island will be in play in the Framework. Right up to the unexpected turn of events AIDA’s fixes wrought on the world they are all now prisoner in.
The second thing we have in play….THEY FILMED THERE!
Colo’s picture of the crane in that post…coupled with:
Meaning at the very least Coulson and Radcliffe are at this fabulous cottage at some point in 16/17 based on IMDB updates. My early suspicion is that the cottage might belong to Radcliffe or it will be the sight of a fancy party in the Framework.
Essentially the entire Framework story arc will play out a lot like a stay on Fantasy Island. Radcliffe and AIDA fixed a regret for each of the hostages, offer a what might have been. All in an effort to ease their pain, give them a better life, and a better world. The world has been set in motion and can not be stopped (the die has been cast if you will). That they are in danger in there, they can die. And like the show those fixes will take some surprising turns not only for us but for the characters. We already know that most if not all of them are NOT better off in the Framework despite what AIDA and Radcliffe think. And in coming out of the Framework they will all have a different perspective on things. IE Coulson will know that he and Shield make a considerable difference despite some of the bad that has come of it.
A big difference is that on Fantasy Island the guest got to choose the Fantasy they wanted fulfilled. AIDA chose for the hostages and likely didn’t pick what they would have.
I guess I never realized how many series recurring characters Cas hasn't actually met, why is that?
Well, there are a few reasons. Sometimes it budget and the constraints of how much they can use Misha. If there’s a guest star in an episode that may cancel out the budget for Misha or other things. Another aspect is story. A lot of the popular guests come in for monster of the week episodes, not mytharc and Castiel tens to join for the mytharc stuff…If a character DOES meet Cas that generally means they’re marked for death.
Damn, what a waste of Tinkerbell. We finally get her back and that's what she's used for? Hopefully Ariel actually gets interaction with Killian. So many guest stars, such crap writing.
I KNOW, RIGHT? I wasn’t overly optimistic when they said Rose was coming back, but I expected more than this? The hell.
For the purpose of full circle zen-ness, I need Killian to meet up with Ariel. She was the one who was there when he stole back the Jolly, when he said that love was nothing but endless torment. Can you imagine how happy she’ll be to find that Killian’s found True Love? I need her to help him get back to Emma.
I don’t even care about Aladdin and Jasmine, which is sad.
