I heard that a reviewer complained that Once should stop introducing new characters and foccus on developing the main characters. I do not know the reviewer but I wonder if he/she has even seen the show. Every episode has been about developing the characters of one of the main 5 stars.This series is about Emma, Snow, Charming, Regina, and Rumple. Favorites like Red, Grumpy, Belle, and Hatter have been given more to do this season but they do not detract from the main stars. In fact they add to the main story. Even the new characters add to the storyline. Mulan and Arora add exposition, Cora is part of Regina's story, ext.Even the giant in yesterday's episode showed the growing strength of Emma. Your traditional villian who isnt bad. Every show has guest stars. If you dont have guest characters then the main group would just be sitting around drinking tea. Once is not Game of thrones where dozens of characters are involved in their own unrelated storylines.

I think August showed ' Neal' rump's dagger....I still think Neal and bae are the same. That us why he believed August so easily.
August disappeared in the first episode so I am pretty sure he is up and about and he was definitely the one who sent the postcard to Neal in the first episode. There must be something else going on that August is doing though, because he has not returned to storybrooke....

Can I just say, I love Hook. I freaked out when Emma first handcuffed him. I thought she really was just leaving him there to die. But I didn't get the whole "10 hour head start" thing. Did Emma ask the giant to release him after 10 hours? I felt so bad for him and I do think he is trustworthy or at least he was until Emma betrayed him. I really don't want him to side with Cora now but he probably will.
I thought the dream thing was really cool. Aurora and Henry were definitely seeing each other. I'm guessing in the next episode they'll figure this out and use it to communicate.
August annoyed me and I really want to know what he showed Neal. I don't really want Neal to be Bae but if it's explained well I won't mind. Neal was pretty cool but I don't think he was a good influence on Emma.
In this episode I decided I really like Mulan. She's so cool and I like her relationship with Aurora who I don't really like. However I did feel bad for Aurora at that one line she had, "I don't have any loved ones, it should be me."
Overall I really liked this episode.

I think Henry and Aurora are looking at each other in their dream. Aurora said "HE" was looking at her. While Henry said "SHE" was looking at him. I think its a connection between the old fairy land and storybrooke.

hum.. maybe.. what neil saw on the box was rumple´s knife.. someone did move it.. meybe he is rumples son and that is how august could persuade him so quickly.

I think that whatever the dream means, it's a side effect of having suffered under the sleeping curse. Aurora, Snow, and Henry have all fallen victim to that curse. Aurora and Henry are having the same nightmare, and Snow's having nightmares - by her reaction to Aurora's, wouldn't be surprised if it was the same.

Don't know what the dream means, but I really do think the sleeping curse makes them have it.

There's no reason (yet) to think that August kept the money for himself. He can't exactly mail a wad of cash to a woman in a federal penitentiary! It's possible that he got the money to her after she was released. She had to start her life over somehow once she got out, and the cash would be a good place to start.

I am curious as to what August showed Neal in the box. It had to be something profound. I'm also wondering how the postcard got to Neal in the first episode of the season - August was still somewhat, erm, out of sorts at the time. Maybe he set up some sort of contingency.

i loved the emma flashback. it made me understand her hostility and made me actually like her!! want neil and her to reunite as it seems he is her true love and hopefully she'll understand why he sacrificed everything for her.....
i so confused, so henry is her child? but i fort he was regina's too????

Enjoyed the episode, but I am definitely NOT a Neal fan. I appreciate that he loved Emma, but he was definitely not a good influence for her. It does suck the way August manipulated the situation, but it was for her good ultimately.

If we don't see Neal again, I won't be sorry. I honestly was expecting her "baby daddy" to be a little more attractive and irresistibly appealing to a young Emma; and Neal doesn't fit into the "true love" standard of manliness and attractiveness to me for Emma.
