oz characters

All Danger at Certain Distances...

@choosyfruit reminded me again about our joint project managing the romance and break-up of Oz and Ez. This is a piece I wrote a while ago that I guess I’ll finally post. Oh boy.

Everything everybody had said about him had ended up being true, and that hurt. It was a deep hurt, but somehow distant, as if the further it cored into him the closer it got to slipping into some endless expanse within. An empty dimension folded up inside him where things could be different and their weird no pain receptors.

He smiled at the thought. “Ez, you windbag.” “Easy, no more purple prose, alright?”

It wasn’t such a bad thing, per se, that everyone was right about him: he’d known so many people and all of them had said such different things. The more he was what they said, the more he was nothing at all.

Nothing at all.

There were days where the thought scared him—because it made things ‘make sense’ in a way that panicked him most. When he discovered he’d meant nothing at all to Ozark Shepard (or meant ‘not-enough’? Meant ‘too-much’? Again, enough conflicting viewpoints to make it not really worth it anymore to decide what the truth was today), he thought for a long time it was because Oz’s experience on Akuze had made him incompatible with Ezra’s stay-at-home kind of living.

They had only been engaged, but sometimes at night he whispered the word ‘widower’ to himself. He tried, for a time, to mourn Oz, as if the man he loved had died on Akuze and a clone had returned from the field. One with incomplete memories of their life together that could remember all they meant to one each other, but couldn’t connect them in any way that looked like ‘love’. Ezra tried telling himself: “I couldn’t love him, either. Couldn’t love a clone. Would be disrespectful to the man I lost to love the version who came back.”

He hated this though. Hated what it meant for the fiances returning from other tragedies to find a way to make it work with their boyfriends. Wasn’t fair to them.

“Hold it right there, Mr! Haven’t you caused enough trouble today?”

Edd is the first one to step in to stop the monster.

Remind you of another scene?

Big Picture Show has a connection to The Wizard of Oz. The Eds repressed personalities are what the Scarecrow, Tinman, and Lion are seeking for.

We all know Eddy was hiding his true self his whole life, but let’s talk about Ed who In season 1 was a smart, but quirky kid. He became increasingly dumber, but it’s not all the writers faults. Due to constantly being told that he is a idiot he resorts to this image. The Scarecrow had brains all along because he came up with the plan to save Dorothy. Ed saves Eddy by slamming Bro in the face with a door.

Edd lacks courage. He is afraid to stand up for himself. Mainly due to the incident from his childhood, but also due to how his parents have treated him.

Stills from the new season of Zoo that were released by the show.  The top image looks like Jamie just busted in somewhere she wasn’t supposed to be (anyone surprised?). She also looks determined as hell. (Did she find out Mitch wasn’t dead?  That he’s being held against his will? That he’s there voluntarily and she’s gonna kick his ass?) Bottom image is the same woman looking like she just walked onto a Bond movie. Gorgeous. I’m liking the short hair, as well as the RBF.  On point. 

Other images include Jackson looking both badass and adorably confused, Jackson making out with an as-of-yet unidentified woman (watch those hands, young man), and (unfortunately) what’s-his-name with what appears to be some sort of ID badge.

“The photos are not mine”

Highlights from the Rebecca Mader panel at Storytelling Con, Barcelona, April 22, 2017

  • Asked about visiting Prague:  “My favorite thing to do in Prague is just to walk around the old part, walk over the bridges, drink the wine and eat the food.  I ate and drank so much in Prague it was fantastic.  A really beautiful city.”
  • Asked about Elizabeth Mitchell:  She missed working with her on Once Upon a Time but loved working with her on Lost.
  • About Zelena’s relationship with Hades:  “That died a death didn’t it?  Zelena and Hades no more.  […]  Being with Hades was the first time Zelena has ever been in a romantic relationship with a man or a woman.  It definitely changed her.  It broke down some walls around her heart.  […]  He was awful.  She can do way better than him.  He’s an amazing actor.  I think she deserves to be with someone who doesn’t want to murder her sister.  You know what i mean?  […]  I need some new blood.  Someone new.”
  • If Regina and Zelena weren’t sisters would she ship them:  “Yeah.  It doesn’t matter because in real life we’re just Bex and Lana.”  What story would you like for them?  “To be lesbian lovers you mean?  I’d watch it!  It would have to be on cable or netflix.  And for them not to be related.  Just girlfriends, not sisters, two strong women?  I ship it.”
  • Why she became an actor and move to the US:  “I always wanted to be an actress but I couldn’t afford to go to college.  So I just decided fuck I’m going to move to America and see what happens.  So I moved to America with $200 and said I’m going to be an actress!  And everyone said okay… and I showed them.  Haters gonna hate….”
  • What would you like to be if you weren’t an actress:  “I don’t have a plan B.  I always wanted to be an actress so I did it.  I don’t have an plan B.  If it all goes wrong I’ll just have to do it at home.”
  • Asking about Glinda:  “Yeah I love it when there are lots of Wizard of Oz characters.  Tomorrow night, because you’ll all be watching illegally on your laptops, is a big episode for my character where you’ll get to meet the Tin Man and maybe the Cowardly Lion.  I think it would be great if Glinda came back at some point.  She’s beautiful.”
  • Bex cannot remember the Lost numbers.
  • Bex wants Star Wars characters added to Once Upon a Time.
  • How does she view Regina blaming Zelena for the death of Robin:  “It was not my fault!  I didn’t do it!  I didn’t kill him!  I killed Hades for her!  I’m FINE!  I literally killed my boyfriend to save my sister.  You’re welcome.  Regina lives because of me.”
  • FMK:  Emma, Rumple, Regina.  F: Emma, M: Regina, K: Rumple.  Because Regina would cook for her and be a good wifie.  “That’s a whole new tv show!  I’d watch it.”
  • If Zelena had a pet what would it be:  “A flying monkey.  And a broomstick.  And if you ever don’t see my baby in a scene, they’re like ‘the flying monkeys are taking care of it.  They’re good nannies.”
  • A love interest from Lost for Zelena:  Sawyer.
  • Funny stuff between the cast:  She directs people to Snapchat and she suggests Lana is always trying to feed her and make her fat.   
  • Favorite character on Grey’s anatomy:  “The hot guy who is always moody and works in peds.  And then like the hot blond lesbian.  I love her.  If I had a sick baby I’d take her to her stat.”
  • Promises that we’ll see some “sister stuff” in the coming episodes.
  • Question about Zelena finding true love, someone suggests Emma, “Sorry Hook.  Maybe she should break up their relationship.”  More suggestions about Zelena and Belle.  “At the end of this season I don’t know that she’ll find true love.  She’s still getting over that Hades thing.”  But says she doesn’t need a man.
  • Favorite ship on the show:  “Zelena and her broomstick.”
  • Favorite bloopers:  “When i forget a line I say such awful things.  There is a reason I’m not on the blooper reel much because when I forget a line I immediately swear.  Once my sister came to visit me in Vancouver in September and we were in Mr. Gold’s shop and Regina, she was the Evil Queen, and there was Rumple, and my sister was by what we call video village where the monitors are and I walked up to the Evil Queen and ‘FUCK!  I forgot what my fucking line was!’ and I heard my sister in the back scream and that made it so much worse.  I don’t even remember what the question was.”
  • Favorite life advise:  “Be yourself.  Piss off hater.  Do you.  Just do you boo.  And whatever you are doing in life just don’t give up.  And when things are really awful and you just want it to be over and you don’t want to do it anymore it never feels the same the next day.  Hashtag ThisToShallPass.”
  • What it was like working with Barbara Hershey:  “Awh mama.  Barbara Hershey was wicked.  She’s really kind.  She had really good candy.  I had a bit of a love affair with Barbara Hershey.  We fell in love and she would like hold my hand.  We had these beautiful scenes with Barbara, Lana and me, and before we shoot while the cameras were rolling we would just hold hands and look into each other’s eyes and just say ‘I love you’.  The three of us together was magical.”
  • Would she like to have a romance with King Arthur:  “A bit weird because Liam is a very good friend and I know his fiance so I’m going to say no.”
  • She’s only ever been to an airport in Sweden.  But she’d like to go there and see more then the airport.
  • What does she think about the Black Fairy:  “I love her.  I’ve known the actress who plays her Jaime Murray, for seven years.  Jaime Murray is an amazing actress.  But it’s nice.  We’re the same age.  We’re both English.”  About the final battle:  “Buckle up for safety, it’s about to get real.”
  • Memorizing dialogue:  She learns each line and then the second, and then goes back to the first and does both, and then goes onto the third, and repeats until she learns all of it.  She credits doing soup opera acting.
