If all of Arendelle is frozen, it really doesn't matter who is in charge. The place is like Sleeping Beauty's castle - suspended in time.

Only Elsa could have convinced Emma to embrace her magical side. Emma was too afraid to touch any of her "normal" loved ones. Plus, their combined magic was needed to resist the pull of the sorcerer's hat.

I will miss Ward's Beard. But, once I saw his pretty face again, I realized how much I'd missed seeing that, too. It became too easy to equate Unshaven Ward w/Hydra & being bad. Now, I suspect we'll see why the Ward family produced such *ssholes.

That was an inside joke. Josh Dallas (David/Charming) co-starred in THOR as Fandral, one of Thor's 3 warrior friends. He couldn't do THOR 2 & was replaced in the role by Zachary Levi.

There is a big hole in the entire Ingrid-Emma foster home history. If Ingrid/Snow Queen found a way to Boston to bond with Emma as a teenager, why did she just let her run away a couple of years later & not go after her? The lady is obviously powerful & was outside of Storybrooke's existence & curses. The audience is being shown that her motivation happens long prior to Storybrooke being created. It doesn't make sense that she'd just allow Emma to leave after going to the trouble of finding this world, becoming Emma's foster mother, & bonding with her. Also, Emma was supposedly a teenager when she went to live w/Ingrid. But, the drawing looked like it had been done by a child. That was bad continuity.

If Coulson really wants to have leverage over both Wards, he either needs to locate brother #3 or get a mind-reader on to the SHIELD crew.

I thought Diggle used to work at ARGUS with Lyla & Waller, after he left the military. He knows her. That's the impression I got.

I think it's was all the light. 75% of the time, I cannot tell what is happening in the fight scenes in Starling City because they are TOO DARK. Didn't have that problem in Corto Maltese. Nor do I have it in THE FLASH or AGENTS OF SHIELD.

That was a heartbreaking moment - Gemma saying she left because she was the reason Fitz wasn't improving. I guess she reminds him of what he was like before & he strains to return to that point when she is around, instead of finding different ways to communicate.

Wen is in great shape & does a lot. But, no, they have some excellent stunt doubles & *choreographers* who really should be recognized. Insurance prevents her from doing really dangerous stuff. What I love about AoS is their attitude about making an older female character the martial arts star in a series instead of a 30-year-old guy. It's not a big deal to them. They don't draw attention to it. It simply IS. "Well, duh! Why not? She's awesome." It's continuing the Buffy tradition on the opposite end of the scale. THANK YOU!
