I also keep wondering who Henry's dad is, and if he has any connection to the tale.
Its pretty much a common guess now that Rumple's son is Henry's father as Emma described him as "dangerous" older man and "bad business".
I was also kind of flummoxed by the addition of the "dementors" doing their soul-sucking thing right out of Harry Potter...a
Potter invented only a few things. A lot of creatures in it is based upon european folk lore and scare stories. Dementors are just Potterverse's version of wraiths from the european folklore (spectral like floating ghosts in rags who steal souls and signify death and disease, etc)
what was up with the dementors?even the soul sucking part looked the same as harry potter!
Dementors are based upon the same type of mythological ghost creature from european folklore as the guys in this episode. The general look is same through the majority of stories that have them.
the similarities also highlight that its a multiversal creature existing in many lands, that goes by many names in others universes.
I would have wanted regina dead too, and I agree with the reviewer, henry is reginas achilles heel and I think he will be the one to bring her down in the end.
I thoroughly disagree, because I do not think Regina will be "brought down" she will be redeemed adn yes Henry IS the path to redemption for her, just like Belle is for Gold.
The postcard message is the key to who was the man in the opening sequence. Who would consider Storybrooke to be "broken" as opposed to "fixed?"
I think the "broken" parts means that Curse has been broken and the character supposedly could enter storybrooke now.
3) Fairyland scenes are no longer flashbacks. They are concurrent in time w/Storybrooke, which is a nice change.
Actually no they are not.
In this episode, Storybrooke part of the story was a giant flashback that happens before the wake-up of Aurora. In the upcoming episodes we will have THREE kinds of scenes - Storybrooke present, FTL flashback and FTL present.
What "moral compass"? This show does not have any. By now, the only possible explanation for them ignoring half the stuff they should have reacted to and NOT even getting any consequences for their actions, is that 99% of the cast are sociopaths,
Lol, I didn't know Harry Potter was a fairytale.
It is not.
Wraiths are real parts of european folklore.
I am guessing that the man at the start was March Hare/White Rabbit of wonderland. Makes sense and I doubt they would just throw baelfire or Henry's father at us like that.
Can this show get ANY MORE PERFECT? seriously?
SO I guess now in the show we will have THREE different settings instead of two(FTL and Storybrooke)...
Also my heart breaks for Regina.....the girl's more confused and conflicted than even Rumple is now...
Can't wait for Regina's redemption. Its such a fascinating and great concept and I have no doubts taht she will do everything to get her son back, now. She chose him over the curse after all.
Snow and MM in FTL? OH HELL TO THE YES
The idea that a show could validate such a crackship only even stronger embodies of just how misogynistic and sexist the writers of this show are.
