@Reviewer Christine - How can you say all the action was in Storybrooke? What about the entire Mulan-Phillip backstory? Personally, I loved that part and Belle's involvement. It also clears up the timeline even more wrt how & when the EQ threw Belle into a dungeon, and when/where Mulan & Phillip live. And, FINALLY, we see Belle wearing something new, although...is cleavage really necessary when hunting a flaming lion? Well...you know what I mean. And, what a final scene! Personally, we clapped when Hook hit the car hood and went flying. How like him to shoot an unarmed girl in the back...JERK!

@Jane & Elizabeth - The creators of OUAT have stated on their weekly podcast that Rumple only had his memory of Storybrooke returned when Emma said her name to him last year. You might want to listen to their past comments about this season's episodes. I know it's confusing because that wasn't really clear to me either. But, according to them (and they write the show), Regina was the only character in Storybrooke who had her memories the entire time of its existence. She can also come & go from the town at any time (and maybe she has) and not be affected by the curse.

How did Hook know about the line anyway?

Smee was in on the plan to send her over the line earlier on, remember?

Hook's vengeance made him seem clueless to the factor that he helped make Rumple's anger.
THat actually flows nicely - revenge is a machine that keeps on going, so to say - for Hook to have a target, he has to view rumple as evil, for Rumple to be evil, he has to do evil things, so the only way Hook can fulfill his thirst for vengeance is if Rumple remains the heartless man he was.

When Hook knew not only where to find the blanket that Rumpelstiltskin prized, but arranged a diversion in order to steal it--well, that's when the plot jumped the shark for me. I give up.
good. You don't have enough attention to comprehend the show anyway, since both of those were explained in show (Hook SAW Rumple show Belle the cloth and he knew of Belle's importance since previous flashback of his)

Was the car that hit Hook Emma's ex boyfriend? Remember when Pinocchio sent him the post card? We haven't seen him since.

Belle and Rummpie are my fav couple on this show. I love watching them. Can't wait to see how Rummpie gets her back since Belle told Regina they will always betogether. Missed Regina on most of the show. Regina is my fav of all the characters on the show. Where was Cora? I love the way women and this show kick butt and don't sit around waiting for their Prince Chaming to save them. Question? Nobody else hangs out at the docks to see seagulls sitting a ship that can't be seen?

This is the episode where I quit watching. I've stuck around this long perhaps because of Robert Carlyle's excellent acting, but they jumped the shark when they introduced Mulan. When Hook knew not only where to find the blanket that Rumpelstiltskin prized, but arranged a diversion in order to steal it--well, that's when the plot jumped the shark for me. I give up. In spite of an appealing cast, it's really a boring, stupid show.

If anyone saw the license plate, you would know that the stranger is from Pennsylvania and that rhymes with.... TRANSYLVANIA!!! The Stranger is Victor's Brother, aka the creature of FRANKENSTEIN...

You bring up an interesting point Elizabeth. Could the line really have affected Rumple? He was always himself in Storybrooke and others reverted to themselves as Storybrooke residents if they crossed it. Did Rumple really have anything to fear? Belle needed that spell more than Rumple. That was probably a hint to Hook's plan all along, to make Belle forget him.

How did Hook know about the line anyway?
Why would Rumple now leave Belle alone knowing Hook was alive and would still do anything to hurt him?

Rumple put so much stress on not having enough enchantment, that it slighted a hint to the odds. This entire story is messed up. Hook's vengeance made him seem clueless to the factor that he helped make Rumple's anger. By calling him a coward, Rumple only set out to prove himself and so went the eye for an eye. You know what they say about that one.

Whathappened

Rumple and Belle do absolutely nothing for me, I cringe when they're on screen. So I was jumping up and down when Belle was shot and clapped in applause when she lost her memories. Horrible couple

Bring me more awesome Regina and Hook

Bored, you know Rumple deserve to be hurt.

Sure.

Just NOT through the perfection that is Belle.
And NOT as soon as he did a couple of genuinely good, redeemable decisions(sparing smee and hook).

NO one hurts Belle, no matter the reason.
