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

FAN-TASTIC! There needs to be an award for the casting director of this show, too. The casting of younger and older versions of parents & children, combined with the acting talent, is just amazing. Little Rumple - what a darling! The only hiccup might be Neal because he really doesn't look anything like the younger Baelfire, who does resemble Little Rumple. Peter Pan is the Most Selfish Little Pr*&% in the Universe...which was only touched upon in J.M. Barrie's original story. LOVE the twist that OUAT put on it - that selfish desires w/an adult's complete knowledge of the repercussions plus full abdication of any responsibility equals evil on a truly higher plane. Cora had to remove her heart to get to that level because she knew that her ability to love and care for people would get in the way. Pan didn't even have to do that. He is completely narcissistic, self-absorbed, & cares about no one even *with* his heart. OK, time for the kids to go home & let the adults take charge. I've had enough. Regina, rip that little bugger to shreds!

Agree w/this review. Unlike Regina in OUAT, Anastasia has no illusions about what might have been or the kind of person she is. She willing gave up True Love to be a queen, and doesn't have any regrets. In a way, that's refreshing. She doesn't whine or blame anyone for her predicament. "No one gave me ANYTHING. I've had to TAKE everything I have." Jafar & Anastasia come from similar beginnings, and it's going to be interesting to see who comes out on top.

EXACTLY. How much will the guy who says, "Trust the system," actually trust the system now that he's seen how expendable Level 8's & above consider his team...and possibly himself.

Completely agree! Our family ping ponged btw laughing hilariously at the visual of floating rats, and fear for Jemma. She is such an adorable, brainy sweetheart, the "Willow" of the bunch, that having anything happen to her just makes us choke. That dichotomy of silly humor & emotional angst within seconds is such a hallmark of Whedon productions. They're doing a great job w/this series IMO.

The reviewer must have been pressed for time. Not one word about how good it was to see Storybrooke again? Granny, the dwarves, Blue and Jiminy Cricket were all a sight for sore eyes. IMO, less Pan, the better. The actor playing him is doing a great job. But, since the character of Pan is a little sh*t, the only thing that makes staying in Neverland worth it for *me* is the anticipation of watching Regina, Emma & Rumple turn the little snot into a Pan Cake. Keeping Wendy prisoner for a century wiped away any sympathies I had for these Lost Boys.
