where did this storyline go

who’s coming back?

i’ve been getting a little sick of seeing posts that say “where did this character/this storyline go?” so i did some imdb stalking to clear up common questions and dispel some common ideas (ex. is moose gonna come back? etc.)

those of you (me included) still waiting on the joaquin x kevin story, good news! joaquin will be returning for 1x08, 1x10, 1x11 and 1x12!

this has been proved by some screencaps circulating as well, but ethel will also be returning for 1x09.

chuck is gonna come back too, for 1x10.

1x11 is unfortunately going to be reggie’s last episode this season.

so far, only the core four have been confirmed as cast members for the season 2 premiere (the 14th episode listed here,) but im sure the other characters will follow suit.

we won’t be seeing her in 1x12, but valerie’s in all the other episodes from 1x08 to the finale!

we’ll be seeing fp jones again in 1x08 and 1x10.

josie will be in every episode from now until the finale! however josie and the pussycats won’t be assembled as asha bromfield (who plays melody aka. the third pussycat) will only be in 1x08, 1x09, and 1x10. i assume those episodes will involve performances.

those of you wondering where the hell moose went, he’ll be back for 1x08 and 1x10.

hopefully that answers some questions regarding “where did x character go?” “i thought we were gonna get a storyline with…” etc. these might be in passing or in the background, so i’m not too sure about moose or chuck being central to the plot.

it’s already been said but i’m so so disappointed with the way pretty much all of the characters this season have been written, every single girl in the girl squad has been demonized and turned into a racist, dismissive, terrible friend (which, like, also dismisses the character development these girls went through the previous seasons) and all this buildup over what? screenshots? that’s it? and where did the yousef storyline go? what was the point of that? there have been so many storylines introduced this season and then completely abandoned without resolution, it all feels like loose ends 

and then saving even’s part in all of this until the last minute, which pretty much reduces his entire character to his mental illness and suicide attempt, is so so ugly. we never saw him outside of isak (who’s character has also been slandered) and it’s so disrespectful to him as a character, especially since julie wrote that they’ve known each other previously so? wouldn’t that have led to more scenes between them throughout the season? 

it’s all so YIKES. messy, messy writing. 

But Rumple Didn’t Know!

I am VERY pro Rumple/Gold so it saddens me to see people saying he chose power (the crystal) over love (Belle and Baby). The poor guy has been doing everything in his power to wake up his wife. HE tried it, and it failed, that’s choosing love if you ask me, which it only failed because of the two cursed people can’t share tlk that A&E seem persistent on pushing on us. Then his wife’s own father wouldn’t wake his daughter, imagine Moe’s reaction if Rumple told him Belle was pregnant. Moe would of probably stole Belle to give her an abortion thing and then we’d have a whole other fucked up storyline to deal with. Then he gets the crystal and has it all tethered up and ready to go and what happens? The “heroes assume correctly but then they assume that he’s going to do bad, evil, terrible things after. First off TALK. TO. THE. GUY! Secondly you all really think for real once she’s awake Belle would actually let him get away with that shit? And he’s kind of putty in her hands, even with this whole “I am the dark one and I like it” stance he still FOR BELLE, wants to TRY to do light with it so he can be the one Merlin prophecised about (which where the hell did that storyline go?). So now Rumple’s got his grandson, of all of them the one he probably thought would give him the benefit of the doubt, stealing the crystal from him. He blatantly went over to the Charmings and told them “Henry plans on destroying magic, he stole the crystal from me, I’m going to retrieve it from him.” Never once did he say he was going to harm a hair on his grandson’s head, or his girlfriend’s head. So of course he gets trailed because the “heroes” think he’s going to hurt Henry so they try to locate him first and keep the crystal from Rumple.

So with all that information in mind. What other conclusion is Rumple suppose to make here? He didn’t know at that point in time that Snowing, Zelena, and Killian were in the Land of Untold Stories and with the added bonus of everyone trying to steal the one thing from him that he needs to successfully wake his wife up, the fucking Olympian Crystal shard, excuse him for wanting to save that so he CAN WAKE UP HIS WIFE THAT HE HAS BEEN TRYING TO KEEP SAFE SINCE SHE FUCKING GOT PREGNANT!!! I’m like 99.9% sure (the .01% is in account for fucked up writing) that if he knew Big Mouth Snow tattled yet again he would of taken Belle and Baby in a Box over the crystal. I mean the guy talked lovingly to Belle and Baby in a box, put Belle and Baby in a Box the front seat, WITH A FUCKING BLANKET TO KEEP THEM WARM, and talked lovingly to Belle and Baby in a Box AGAIN with promise to hash things out and go see the world, poor guy wants to get the fuck out of Storybrooke where he gets tortured and I for one don’t blame him. Even after the fact when Rumple was about to kill Hyde, he stopped because Hyde has a way to wake up Belle and Baby. So you tell me right now that that man doesn’t chose loving his wife and unborn child over power, I dare you, because it will be a cold day in hell that all you nay sayers are right. Also remember we are talking about the man who CONSTANTLY REGRETS THE ONE TIME HE CHOSE POWER OVER LOVE AND REGRETTED IT NOT EVEN A SECOND LATER. WHO CREATED A DAMN CURSE SPECIFICALLY TO FIND SAID SON. WHO TOLD THE WOMAN HE LOVES, AFTER SHE BECAME BELLE AGAIN, THAT HE FAILED BECAUSE HIS SON DIED. So yeah you’re argument means absolute horse shit.

For those of you that agree with me I’m sorry for the caps, I just have a lot of emotions and I personally identify with both Rumple and Belle on different levels and to hear people say shit against him that is so cruel just pisses me off (and i have the antis blacklisted).
