I HATE PAN! Last season, it was a mother (Cora) who was the Big Bad. This season, it's a father. While I don't mind season-long arcs, that island was getting claustrophobic & monotonous. I'm glad they're all going back to Storybrooke because being in our world now means many more options for defeating Pan, among them a lot more angry mothers (who he seems to underestimate) and the tendency for little boys to want to grow up. Here's hoping we see that annoying little smirk wiped off his face very soon. Maybe he'll start to age before he can get back to Wonderland.

The actress who played Red now stars in NBC's DRACULA w/Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. So, we won't be seeing her unless her new series is cancelled, or the part is recast.

That has never been explained. I personally don't care if they ever address it because I don't want them to get too far afield of our core characters. If it relates to the history of the main conflict, then address it. If not, they should pass.

Can we just all agree that Melinda May ROCKS? Thank you for another awesome female warrior from the Whedonverse! Looking forward to seeing her story fleshed out.

I don't see anything redeeming in Pan at all. He's perfectly willing to kill his own great-grandson to keep living, even though he knows that's not the natural order of things. He knows, and has known, exactly how Henry is related to him for a long time. Pan has extended his life way beyond what it should be just so he can live like a carefree little boy. But, Rumple has risked his life for Henry's several times, even after knowing what might happen to him. Even more telling, Rumple has risked his life for Belle. Meanwhile, Pan locks up Wendy for a hundred years. Nope...I see NOTHING redeeming about Rumple's father whatsoever.

Anyone else wish Mary Poppins would drop out of the sky, give Pan a good talking to, and send him through a portal back to his room where he's grounded?

Sarah, 11 years old IS puberty. That's 6th grade, or middle school age, where we live. Officially, Henry is a "tween."

Good ideas, Kandi!

I'm actually thinking that killing Henry would be a great catalyst for some excellent stories. It's risky. I can't think of any series that has killed a main child character. But, going forward, I don't see Henry's role being very important once he unites his family. Then what happens? Happy endings all around? BORING!

Why? All Emma, Neal & Regina saw from the moment they entered the main room was Henry with his heart in his hand ready to give up his life. Pretty dire situation that demanded their entire attention. Pandora's Box was in a different room otherwise Henry would have seen what happened btw Rumple & Pan. Rumple isn't the priority to these parents, nor should he be. Their son is, and Rumple would agree completely. That's the whole reason they are in the damned place - to save Henry; not Rumple
