Hook, a knight?

He sounded like Darth Vader

Magical fires being lit. In the dark, you assume there is at least one person behind each “torch”

Smee’s back. Smee is finally more Smee-like

Small army acting like a big army. Charade.

Smee mentioned the rat changing that Gold did to him. The curse breaking un-ratted him.

“You don’t need a ship to be a Pirate” Hook

We are getting a peek into the missing year of Hook.

“To Captain Hook” the last time we see him toasted was in Neverland.

What a gift Smee and his mates gave him, just because. I wonder what he got for his Birthday???

Noble Hook. Let the girl go.

“Pay for what?”

At least Ariel didn’t stab him in the neck with a dinglehopper.

Call Marco. Is there an Ikea in Storybrooke? What else do they sell there with Swedish instructions?

Regina is so part of the family now, she just walks in. No knock, no “Is everybody decent?” just walks in. Cool.

So, Blood Magic was not fool proof.

Regina protects Charming’s baby – in Mary Margaret’s apartment. This is not your Season One Regina.

Spells with Baby parts. Ew.

Emma has and uses magic, but can’t control it.

Yoda told Luke “Yoda: Control, control, you must learn control!”

Regina is Emma’s Yoda and Mr. Miyagi. This is a way of life. You have to fully commit to it.

No more Baby Tips for Henry.

The Charmings are fun!! Right?? Generation Gap.

“My Ship” – Hook. Where is it?

Smee loves Frozen Yogurt.

Smooth Hook.

Magic is part of you, Swan. Emma only uses Magic to complete a task, but Regina told her she needed to full commit to a way of life.

As much as you wish you could go back to your old life, you can’t. For Emma, its easy to go back, for Hook it’s not.

We can be as fun as a Pirate Captain.

Ariel’s back in her Ariel bikini, and a big coat probably loaned to her from Leroy. Thanks Leroy. :eye roll:

Ariel’s been looking for Eric, but didn’t tell anyone she left.

Ariel thinks Hook kidnapped Prince Eric. Dagger with BB on it that somehow Ariel “collected” from Blackbeard or someone else with the initials BB;
BB King?
Brooke Burke?
Bob Barker?
Benjamin Bratt?
Bridgette Bardot?
Bobby Brown?
Bilbo Baggins?
Bill Bixby?
Barbara Billingsley?
Bonnie Bedelia?
or Blackbeard.

Bilge Rats – Hook has ridden Pirates of the Caribbean! No offense, Mr. Smee. “I keep dreaming of cheese” Hopefully Swiss

Call to Adventure “Get back the Jolly Roger”

Blackbeard is the most cutthroat pirate ever to hoist a sail, next to you.

The Jolly Roger is more than a ship. It’s a her. A pirate’s life is forever.

Pirate’s code – Any valuable information a pirate captain ascertains shall be compensated in equal favor.

When do we leave? The group grows.

The secret to winning – Loaded dice, or cheating.

Ariel doesn’t remember.

Don’t touch anything. I said, don’t touch.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
Indiana Jones: Stay behind me, Short Round. Step where I step, and don’t touch anything.
[curious, Short Round touches a lamp. A door falls open, with two dessicated mummies falling out. Short Round yells and backpedals]
Short Round: I step where you step! I touch nothing!

The UnCharmings

Elvish. Half elvish. Rumple was a bully. If you didn’t learn, you drowned.

Teaching you to swim. Temple of Doom bridge.

Mr. Gold’s shop might have something of Prince Eric’s.

False Hope

Mercy isn’t a pirate Captain skill.

Being good is nothing to be ashamed of. I’m a pirate and always will be.

Belle.

Hook’s Spyglass spied Sea Creature clasp. Ursula.

Push those instincts.

Tree Cave. The trial. Reach into your gut. Save the bridge. Save yourself.

Emma did it. When all I wanted for you to retie the rope.

Wasted potential. Sometimes a student completes a task differently than the teacher.

Locator spell like Gold poured on Jefferson’s Hat.

Blackbeard vs. Hook

Peter Pan shadow sword fighting

A rescue mission for some wench.

Painful or quite painful

Deserted Island – Neverland?

Prove that Hook is no longer a Pirate

A choice; Surrender the Jolly Roger to me and I tell you where he is, or refuse and he dies along with me

Prince Eric drowned?

Charming teaching Henry to drive. Wow.

Blackbeard and the rest of the pirates has heard he was soft.

“At least I know that our story’s over.” Ariel

“You have a true heart. I’ll always be grateful that you tried to help me” Ariel

“Any man willing to swear an oath to me, shall be given quarter (Mercy)”. No quarter http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_quarter

Selfish and Heartless. I feel sorry for you. You’ll never be happy. This is what drove him to go to New York?

Whatever it takes, I will find him.

Ariel and Hook swearing an oath/confession scene. Best scene ever!

I am so sorry, Ariel. The kind (of a person) who’s empty. I would give anything to take it back. To make things right. I still do (believe in love). I swear on Emma Swan.

Zelena is a shapeshifter. My spies are always circling through every realm.

Hangman island. Referring to the game that John Doe and Mary Margaret played? Outside the curse. Is Zelena lying?

To corrupt your love. She could see the guilt on Hook’s face. I knew it haunted you. I knew I could use it. She cursed his kiss to take her Magic and makes her special.

Hook believes in Emma. Hook knows that Zelena isn’t as powerful to just kill her outright. She can hurt those around Emma.

Hook will stop her. The hook can’t hurt a human, but an enchanted hook…

Zelena doesn’t do anything herself, she gets others to do what she can’t.

Really? That fish is in Storybrooke?

Regina tracks mermaid’s swimming speed.

Emma’s very powerful. Mirror portaling.

Reckless carefree fun side.

Skype.

I’m tired of living in the past. Boom Chicka Wow Wow

The Bread Shop and Killian’s lonely walk in Storybrooke.

Hello Jeff and Colleen, here are the things I learned in the episode, It’s Not Easy Being Green.

#1. Geppetto has some major clock tower repair on his hands.

#2. Zelena may have silver slippers but Regina has the ruby red
gloves.

#3. Doc needs to stop parking his Miata in the street.

#4. Never bet Emma in a game of darts.

#5. Kermit the frog still has a chance.

#6. The Wicked Witch of the Wild West is a version of OZ
I definitely want someone to make!

#7. Some conversations aren’t meant for the doorway.

#8. A Sleeping curse while you’re pregnant is never good for the
baby.

#9. Hook’s bringing the sextant back.

#10. Someone’s going to have to start directing traffic on Main
Street, pronto!

Here are some quick theories, observations and burning questions.

THEORIES:

Lots of people are theorizing that Rumpel may be Zelena’s father but what if it’s Walsh? We know he was originally from Kansas. Could he have come through the same cyclone Zelena did? He would have been a much younger man at the time and maybe he wanted to give the baby her best chance by letting another family take care of her. He seemed to know a lot about Cora. Was this from memory or magic?

Zelena said that after her second chance, Regina will have never been born. If she takes Regina’s place, does Zelena then need Snow’s baby to take hers? There may not even be anything special about the Charming’s baby since Aurora and Philip were worried about their baby as well.

Regina’s line about Cora having a love child with a scarecrow could be a reference by the show writers that Rumpelstiltskin is Zelena’s father. It could also be just a clever red herring to throw us off the trail.

OBSERVATIONS:

Blue has been absent since New York Serenade but she did attend the funeral for Neil. She can be seen standing to the right of the group when the camera is looking up from the casket.

I love Robin Hood but did anyone else think the scene of him peeking through the tree was kind of creepy?

Regina and Zelena fighting is exactly what I wished would have happened with Cora. Usually, Regina’s snappy insults are directed towards the heroes on the show so it was great to finally have her on the same side, laying the smack down on Zelena.

Now that we know Walsh is the Wizard, your question “Will Emma be Walsh’s savior too?” is a very good possibility Jeff.

BURNING QUESTIONS:

Did Zelena take over the Emerald City after she transformed Walsh?

We learned that Walsh is being forced to serve Zelena. Could he actually have been in love with Emma? This could complicate matters down the line if it’s true.

—————-

Maii

Hey guys!
I finally have some time to send this email it’s been a long week, but I finally have two weeks off for easter break yey!

As a film student I thought the camera movements were extremely interesting.

Funeral: It was a really powerful scene that started with Hook throwing the dirt because he was the one that knew him best from the people there and ending with Emma who is finally closing that chapter of her life. Plus the cuts to Rumple feeling the dirt make it all the more painful.

Captain Cobra:
Before anything else, it’s necessary to say that their entire journey was threaded with honesty. From the moment they were about to get on the boat, Hook states that he offered to take him. This is the second time they’ve canonically interacted and it’s involved Hook telling Henry the truth, thus validating just how much he values nobility above all things. Additionally, he knows Emma so well, that he tells Henry things he knows Emma would not only approve of, but genuinely be thankful for. And from the moment Henry expressed not being interested in navigating the stars, he told him the truth about Bae’s father’s death. He made sure Henry knew why Emma was doing what she was doing. And he made sure Henry knew great things about Bae.

Earning Emma’s father’s respect is immensely vital in terms of story telling, and Hook was successful in doing so. He and Charming have found a real friendship in one another. And now, Hook and Henry have found a fatherly bond with one another. If that isn’t obvious as to who Emma’s true love is then I don’t know what to say. And the most beautiful part of the friendships Hook’s formed with Emma’s loved ones is that he’s saved both them in ways they needed at the time — his actions were selflessly inspired by his love for Emma. He literally saved Charming’s life, and he saved Henry’s heart by helping him be at ease even for a little while.

Plus I love the fact that he’s like “this one will do” meaning he “borrowed it” which I thought was hilarious

More on this scene: http://vickyvicarious.tumblr.com/post/81946571252/one-of-my-favorite-things-about-this-episode-was

Oz: Oz was wonderful and the GCI was pretty good..I did not expect it to be Walsh I knew he was in the ep but I didn’t realize he was the wizard, on my 2nd watch I noticed that it was his voice and I’m hitting myself for not noticing it heheh.

Emma slept with the wizard of oz turned monkey then turned human again hehehe.

Outlaw Queen: Let’s face it Tinkerbell is us with our OTPs the whole GO TALK TO HIM thing and getting frustrated plus I feel like she truly cares about Regina and her happiness and wants her to finally be happy. (plus her meeting Robin was perfect). When Zelena comes to threaten Regina you can see Robin stepping closer as if to protect her if something goes wrong.

It’s good for Regina to have someone to confide in. Plus it says a lot that she trusts him with her heart (literally). “You can’t steal something that’s been given to you.”

Rumple/Regina: I thought the letter was extremely interesting because while in that time it was about Zelena now it’s what Rumple thinks of Regina.

I think he used the events in his life to manipulate Zelena only it went incredibly sideways bc he didn’t realize Zelena would fixate on him so much.

Captain Swan:
Hook doesn’t have the Jolly Roger! You know what this means? It means he gave up his ship for a way to find a way to get to Emma. He gave up his home, where Liam died and where Milah died, the last trace of his home to get Emma back to her home.

CS At Grannu’s: Reference to Graham and the throwing of the darts..Notice how Emma has gotten much better at it.

Holy Character development Batman! For Hook to be the one to tell her not to get stuck in revenge it means a lot.

Emma tells Hook about the Jail thing (big thing bc only henry knows) http://vickyvicarious.tumblr.com/post/81952786622/emma-tells-hook

At this point it’s safe to state that if Emma didn’t want Hook around, she wouldn’t be as gracefully comfortable standing so close to him. But good lord, Colin O’Donoghue, try not to kill me and millions of others with your outstanding acting abilities.

The moment Emma mentions: as far as he knows, I haven’t seen Neal since he left me in jail. While Hook’s been to his fair share of prisons, he believes that the ones in our world are far worse. And the moment she says this, the expression in his eyes instantly saddens as he subtly tries to swallow because deep down, he’s breaking. He’s trying to hold it in but it undoubtedly shatters him that she’s been to one of those places. Also, “You’d really do that?” “Aye”

There’s one thing I found extremely impeccable about this scene and it’s the fact that Hook didn’t say something along the lines of “does that surprise you”. It pains him that she has very little faith in him sometimes, but he understands, he sees why she’s breaking. He knows her better than she knows herself and the fact that she can’t see what’s right in front of her is unbearable for him. He’s trying to show her that he’s not going anywhere, and he does that by demonstrating that Henry’s important to him as well.

Emma can’t control the fact that she’s afraid. While deep down she knows he’s not going anywhere, she’s still scared of giving her heart to him fully. And that’s completely normal. She essentially gave him an enormous part of her heart by trusting him with Henry.

I also feel the need to point out that the way her eyes fluttered after he said “nothing will happen to the boy while he’s in my charge” essentially has to mean that she knows it won’t. She trusts him. Jennifer Morrison does this gorgeous thing where she allows Emma’s heart to be reflected in her facial expressions even when her words say something else. It’s not that she was afraid of Henry being in Hook’s care, it’s that she’s afraid of the witch, but what she kept illuminating with her eyes and body language is that she knows she can completely trust Hook.

Doorway scene:

The fact that Emma kept replying with thanks again was because she already knew everything he was going to say. She knows that deep down, this is the best thing for her. Being around family, friends. This place is their home. And Hook knows that as well, he’s telling her she needs to stay because he knows that while New York may have been great, being around loved ones is even better. Though there may be trials and tribulations, it’s worth it because family, friends, and love are always worth it. He’s not pressuring her, he’s only telling her what he knows she already knows. A partner, a person, a soulmate, says what they know the other needs to hear and when.

Their body language is the number one sign that they’re incredibly comfortable with another, especially Emma. She holds nothing back from him. She knows he accepts her. She knows he loves her and that’s something that she’s intuitively drawn towards. He’s made it so she knows that everything she feels is welcomed with him and that’s why she’s able to be herself without hesitation.

The episode was about trust and second chances, she trusted Hook with Henry. And he had the second chance to be a fatherly figure to someone. It’s not coincidence that these moments all occurred in the same episode. At the end of the day, Hook’s part of the family – and it couldn’t be more obvious.

Quotes:

Rumple: Every bit of it. he was family.

Killian: Take it from me, vengeance is not the thing that’s going to make you feel better

Henry: What’s this?

Hook: That my boy is a sextant, it’s a tool used by sailors to navigate

Henry: Like a GPS?

Hook: ……

Hook: ……Aye

Doc: Mi meat

Emma: I’m not an amateur, I’m the savior

-
Can’t wait for Sunday’s ep it’s going to be incredible! Take Care! Love, Maii

Episode Title: It’s Not Easy Being Green

Podcast Number: 215

Onceuponatimepodcast.com/215

Cyclone dropped a baby.

Some similarities, but differences to Emma.

Baby blanket. Basket (Like Moses?). Green ribbon instead of purple. Zelena’s blanket is purple.

Where did she drop?

The couple that found her mentioned wolves. Is that important? Is it a shout out to American Werewolf in London? Stay out of the Moors.

Magical as a baby.

Mother covered for her. Is she in on it? What does she know?

We’re going to Oz, Baby!

Another funeral scene. 2nd outside.

Who’s the blonde kid? Lost boy?

Nice cut to Rumpel. Rumpel can feel the funeral and the dirt tossing?

Lots of new boys. Lost boys?

Each person tossing dirt upon Neal’s casket. Nice shot of Emma’s final toss.

Rumpel confirms that even the trouble about Neal was worth it, “Every bit if it” because he was family.

Rumpel isn’t Zelena’s father. Zelena’s mother died previously.

Zelena had no family. Who sent her to near Oz.

“Put on a good face” spoken by her father. Alluding to the Wizard of Oz? Zelena’s skin color?

Wicked, Magical Zelena. She was going to heal her father’s cut.

Her father said he became a drunk because of her. Because of her magic?

Dropped out of a Tornado.

Emma playing darts, like Graham was in Season 1.

Emma is afraid to tell Henry the truth, because he will think she’s lying or making it up to make him feel better.

Hook trying to help Emma and Henry, and himself make peace with Neal’s passing. Tell Henry what Bae was like when he was Henry’s age.

Leather Conditioner and eyeliner.

Tink!

Lion tattoo. Prophesized?

Gossip about boys. Classic.

Clue trial? Come on, girl.

Robin – green scarf. Ozian much?

Whoa, back up Tink! Didn’t you learn anything from the last time you screwed this up?

Turned out so…

Camera swings are like a tornado spinning around. Many dutch angles, too. Everyone wants to kill the witch, but she is control of the Dark One.

Is that the Cap Man in the background when Zelena says “Little Sister”?

Cora lied to you.

Similar lines from the Pilot

Evil Queen: Oh, I haven’t come here to ruin anything. On the contrary, dear, I’ve come to give you a gift.

Snow White: We want nothing from you.

Evil Queen: But you shall have it! My gift to you is this happy, happy day. But tomorrow, my real work begins. You’ve made your vows, now I make mine. Soon, everything you love, everything all of you love, will be taken from you. Forever. And out of your suffering, will rise my victory. I shall destroy your happiness, if it is the last thing I do.

—-

Zelena: Which is why I’ve brought a gift to help
Regina: I don’t want a gift from you.
Zelna: But you shall have it. See, My gift to you is this sad, sad day. Use it to dig into our past, Regina.

Meet me on Main Street tonight, say sundown…and then I’ll destroy you.

I don’t lose, like Peter Pan.

Bullies and fights after school.

Regina looks a bit flustered.

Hook and Henry boat ride.

Love child with a Scarecrow.

Everyone was ganging up on Regina.

Stick to the Lasagna, lady.

Classic Oz look.

To find out exactly what this Wicked Witch thinks I did to her.

Green liquid? Anti Freeze?

Great and Terrible. Oz.

Cora gave her up, because she could not be Queen. Is the Wizard Lying?

Magic is a gift.

Silver Slippers. Clicking them 3 times is a portal.

It is one thing to wonder about your past, it is another to be envious of things you cannot have. Sibling rivalry.

Zelena going into little sister’s room (or Castle if you want to get technical about it).

Zelena is the first born. The true heir.

Who is Zelena’s father?

Rumpelstiltskin’s drug test.

A letter proves that Regina isn’t an only child.

Charming is Mulan-ing the situation with assigning positions around the intersection.

Belle will try to get through to Rumpel without the dagger.

Regina can’t do this alone.

Great coat, Regina. Here comes Robin, again.

Robin’s a pickpocket, and a smooth operator.

Rumpel’s letter. I always thought it was about me. He thinks she is more powerful than Regina.

Why do you care what that Imp think?

Blindfolding lesson, like a gunfighter.

Magic is all about feelings. Who began to teach Zelena’s magical training?

Ding Dong… the witch is dead?

Rumpel connects with Zelena over their pasts.

Breaking Rumpel out.

Rumpel is controlled. Belle can’t step into the cage.

The next time you try to stop here, I will kill you.

Henry tying knots, like Hook and Bae.

Sextant. Navigating with it.

Henry questions the age issue.

Hook and Henry bond about losing their fathers.

Zelena getting suited up for battle.

Rumpel chooses Regina over Zelena.

You’re insides are starting to show. Green = Envy. Did it happen naturally, or did Rumpel cause it?

God’s Eye view angle.

Dwarf vs Munchkin

If my sister isn’t her in 5 minutes. Let the Dark One off his leash.

Classic sociopath movie moment. Who should I kill first?

The Savior. Will Emma give her a smack down?

Regina arrives.

Black is my color.

So you finally excepted me into the family?

Return of the Jedi connection:

Luke: I know, father.
Darth Vader: So, you have accepted the truth?
Luke: I have accepted that you were once Anakin Skywalker, my father.

Nice right hook, Regina.

Rumpel is a shapeshifter.

Jealousy drives people to do crazy things.

I have that affect on women.

You might want to get that checked out.

There is a Wiazrd more powerful than Rumpel? Who is the Wizard of Oz?

The only way Rumpel can get the slippers (mentioned in ‘The Doctor’ episode) is to kill her. Write that down.

You shouldn’t have taught me all your tricks, Rumpel.

The Dark One dagger and Zelena’s control reminds me of the Emperor and Vader on the Death Star when Vader and Luke were fighting.

Great camera work.

Uh oh. My Miyata. Tiny – The Giant stepped on it once before.

She threw Regina into the Clock Tower.

No heart. I thought she put it back in. Regina is the heart.

Zelena flew off on her broom, like riding of on a horse.

Memories = Brain(s)?

Robin guarded her heart. How cool.

Trusted to a common thief. You can steal something that’s been given to you.

Regina giving her heart to Robin. Truly and figuratively.

Hook pushing Emma to tell the truth, like he did to Charming.

Rumpel is showing that he is breaking her hold on him.

We are doing it all over again.

Zelena wants to cast a new curse as a second chance.

Zelena pushed away the guards, like Regina did in the Pilot.

She tells the Wizard to take her back to when her Mother abandoned her.

You can’t change the past. The fire.

Even my power has it’s limits.

Walsh is the Wizard of Oz. He’s a huckster, showman, collector. He’s like Rumpel.

What you seek – No Magic is that strong.

Trained circus animal.

She wants to erase Regina being born. Can the past be changed? How far back do you have to go to change things?

If Snow’s Baby is the “heart”, it should be protected, like Emma’s

Emma has magic because she is the product of true love. Her heart couldn’t be ripped out by Cora in season 2 because of this. I wonder if the baby will also have magic like Emma. If this is the case and if Zelena tries to take the baby’s heart, it wouldn’t work. I don’t think she wants Henry because even though he has the heart of the truest believer, Regina put that spell on him, so that his heart could never be taken.

Aubrey

Am I the only one who thought of Home Alone when Neal had the insignia burned on to his hand?

‘Course that scene HAD to happen five minutes before putting my own son to bed!! THANKS OUAT!! Like the king from Tolkien’s “Two Towers” (Riders of Rohan), “No parent should have to bury/outlive their own child.” Seriously though, one of the best scenes in the whole series! Knocked it out of the park!

Something incredibly important I forgot to mention was
Rumple chose his son over magic. We saw the exact same situation that we saw back in season 1 Desperate Souls..This time around, we see character growth. He makes the right choice. He proves that he learned from his mistake the first time, and he chooses his son. This is huge. The entire reason the curse was ever enacted was because Rumple made the wrong choice the first time around. Rumple’s entire story has been about this moment – about proving to his son that he has learned from his mistakes. He has changed. Rumple knows now that his son trumps power, and this gave him the chance to truly prove that. He may have said it before now, but actions will always speak louder than words. Any doubts that we may have had about Rumple’s character growth were erased by this act.
(from here, read it it’s really good and explains why neal’s death work’s so well with the plot)

Great show, as always!  Here we go:

(1) Nice CGI of Lumiere, but AGAIN w/the “allow me to introduce myself”!?!  What is it with OUAT and “The Stones”??

(2)  Zelena, touching the tummy again!?!  Okay, NOW she’s just creepy!

(3) Re-introduction of Regina and Robin “sitting in a tree!”, a re-deux of “that pesky year”.

(4)  Hook w/jello?   ALWAYS room for jello. . . . but wait, GREEN jello?  Bae’s “kryptonite”??  :(

(5)  Bae and Belle “forest scene”, reminds me of the scene from Disney’s Lion, WITCH, and Wardrobe, where Lucy meets Mr. Tumnus at the Lamp post.

(6) Bae/Neal, getting hand burnt like Joe Pesci on the doorknob in Home Alone!!

(7)  Robin hitting on “evil queen”!  WHISKEY??  AGAIN??   whoops, TATOO!!  Regina, “run away!  run away!” (a la Monty Python!).  Robin left standing there, and all I could think of was Liam Neeson as “bad cop” in “The LEGO Movie”, . . . . “Darn!   Darn!    Darney Darn!!!”

(Speaking of Monty Python!) (8)  Lumiere:  “I AM A FRENCH CANDELABRA!  Why do you think I have this OUTRAGEOUS accent!?!”

French Taunter (1:15)

(almost done!)

(8)  Nice laughs between Emma and Neal!   WHOA!  Morphing!  Bae kept Rumple alive by being merged together!

(9)  Lumiere!  Saving the day!

(10) (my own thoughts!)  What I wouldn’t do for MY son!!

(11)  As I said before,    BEST SCENE . . . . EVER!!!   Neal “I’ll be watching over you!”  and “thank you papa, for showing me what it is to make a TRUE sacrifice!  It’s about saving the ones you love.”

Translation:  As it gets closer to Easter, “No greater love is there, than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”

It’s all summed up in that folks. . . . 

Peace,

Greetings Jeff and Colleen, here are the things I learned this week on the episode, Quiet Minds. 
#1. The secret to defeating Zelena, is to tell Leroy she ate all the the bacon.
#2. Under no circumstances do you invade Regina’s space.
#3. A woman’s eyes can even get a pirate to do what she wants. 
#4. Attempted murder can be forgiven as long as there are extenuating circumstances.
#5. If Hook is selling books on Amazon as “like new”, don’t believe him. 
#6. Emma’s Super Mom breakfast was comparable to sending Aqualad to save the world.
#7. Regina should be the new spokeswoman for Jack Daniels.
#8. Think twice before using the bathroom in Snow’s and Charming’s apartment.
 #9. Zelena may or may not posses boxes of hair. 
#10. And all the Captain Swan fans said, amen. 

OBSERVATIONS:
They made a point in this episode to show the swan necklace that Emma gave back to Neil in the episode Manhattan. I feel this necklace is important and will show up again. A crazy theory I had is that this necklace may be the symbol of Emma or Neil’s heart that Zelina will need. Belle did say, it was born out of true love.

When Dorothy and her friends went to see the Wizard, he gave them items that symbolized what they were lacking. The Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow never had anything taken away from them yet we’ve been attributing their personas to people in Storybrooke. We never stopped to ask the question, where did the Wizard get the items from? Could Zelena be collecting them for him or is she herself the Wizard? There are people who could benefit from what Zelena has stolen. Let me just brainstorm for a second.  Rumple has been a coward all his life, Regina could use a heart, that is not black, to fall in again and Henry could use a brain to remember. I don’t know, just some random thoughts. What do you guys think?
Zelena tells her flying monkey “Find him, beautiful one”. Could it be the monkey means something more to her?
The key marked Neil for death,  just as the medallion did with Regina and Prince Philip when the Wraith attacked them.

I loved Lumiere’s character.
he sounded great and definitely added to the story. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I really wish they could have done the same with Rapunzel. We did see Lumiere back in season one, or at least an Easter egg of what they wanted us to think.

The scene with Robin and Regina at Zelina’s country house was almost the same exact conversation they had in Witch Hunt before going down the secret tunnel to the castle. Check it out:
           
ENCHANTED FOREST
Regina:  You think you can stop her if she tries to hurt me?
Robin: Maybe. Maybe not. But I have to try.
Regina No. You’re not.
Robin: Not coming along? I do believe I am. I can help
Regina: I didn’t ask for help.
Robin: Well, that doesn’t mean you won’t need it.
Regina: Don’t get in my way
Robin: Oh, I wouldn’t dream of it
 
                   STORYBROOKE
Regina: You think you can bring down the Wicked Witch with sticks?
Robin: Well, I’m certainly going to try   
Robin: Well then you got yourself a partner
Regina: I don’t remember asking for one
Regina: Just don’t get in my way
Robin: I wouldn’t dream of it
 
This prompts Regina to say, “Have we met before”. Maybe she’s remembering slowly.
FRUSTRATING QUOTE:
Emma – “What does Zelena want?” 
Gold - ”What she doesn’t have” 
Thanks for clearing that up Rumpel!
BURNING QUESTIONS: 
* We found out that the first Dark One 
   was made from the vault. Who made        
   the first Dark One and why?
* Did Rumpelstiltskin lose his memories      
   as well?

Hello Jeff and Colleen, how are you guys? That episode hurt, I admit it I cried but I felt it was a long time coming. Especially considering they foreshadowed it in Season 1 with Emma telling Henry about how his dad died in a fire and Neal technically dying from a burn in  his hand.
Belle – For me Belle was the MVP of this ep, which is weird bc I’ve never been much of a Belle fan 
FTL
 Belle was a bit suspicious at the beginning but put it away and then when he said the thing about the 200 years she knew her suspicious were confirmed.  She was the one who told Neal not to do it that Rumple wouldn’t want this and that they would put millions of people in danger. Even when Lumiere betrayed her she still saved him from the witch bc she could have easily ran off but she made sure to grab him. 
Storybrooke
Belle and Hook- these scenes were I think my fav of the episode 
Hook: I will stay here with you, I’m surprisingly good at research
Belle: You..will stay with me 
Emma: He’ll protect you if the witch comes
Belle: You do know he’s tried to kill me?
Hook: Ah, there were extenuating circumstances
Belle: Twice
Hook: Sorry?
This is a man who has admitted he doesn’t apologize and yet here he is apologizing,  he is on the path to changing and he knows that part of it is making up for what he has done.  There’s the fact that they trusted him to take care of Belle and Belle herself didn’t doubt it after her initial concern. She let him stay there and he rushed in with a sword to protect her not knowing who was trying to come inside. 
We can see that the only reason Belle is less forgiving with him than she is with Rumple is that he personally slighted her. She seems downright affectionate with him in the books scene and I thought it was wonderful. 
The scene in Gold’s shop with Snow holding Belle and Charming reassuring Hook was wonderful – they all felt like family in that moment, mourning the loss of one of theirs. It was good to have Snow and Charming as the unaffected ones offering support, since they never bonded with Neal.

Neal/Emma scenes
Their scenes make me wish they had done more with Neal’s character because they showed that Emma and Neal could be friends for Henry. Because all their scenes were about Henry, Emma’s moved on ever since before the second curse she hasn’t wanted anything with him romantically. Neal in this ep actually understood that and he didn’t try to belittle her or her feelings like in other episodes. It makes me sad for the wasted potential. 
He told her to find Tallahassee with someone else just like Daniel told Regina to love again. In this case I’m pretty sure Neal knew exactly who he was talking about when he told her that.  Tallahassee didn’t mean the place it meant true love & home and they could never find it together. 
Both most of all I’m sad for Henry bc he didn’t remember his father before he died. Because for all his faults Neal actually was a good father during the time he spent with Henry, and he loved his son. 
Captain Fire – There’s 3 parts to this entire scene, the funny, the sentimental and the well let’s call it eye opening
The funny – Hook bringing him Jello bc it’s what they gave him at the hospital and he thinking it has medicinal properties
The Touching – This scene was all I wanted since we found out their backstory. Because Hook loved Bae like a son.  And it was Neal finally seeing Killian behind the mask of Hook, he actually called him Killian. 
Hook told Neal that they let … “A Woman” come between them. 
Not Emma, but “a woman”.
Because he was also talking about Milah. It was a double entendre. Because both women came between them in a way.
BUT…when he said it he was hugging Neal + Rumple. So he also acknowledged that Miilah was at the root of their 300+ year feud without even realizing he was doing so.
The eye-opening – no one has really talked about this scene everyone focuses on the other parts
“What’s it feel like, to play the hero after being a pirate for so long?”
“Unfamiliar.”
“And you? How does it feel to play the villain?” 
“I’m a villain now?” 
“Well, if you truly had a hand in bringing your father back. I’d suspect you to use the darkest of magic, and pay and even darker price.” 
I find it really interesting because Hook was the only to kind of bring to mind that what Neal did wasn’t actually heroic but rather probably the opposite. 
My friend Nini put these tags on a gif set of this scene #neal owning to his mistakes man that was one of my main problems with him #he didn’t apologize to emma until 2×21 #and then in 3a with mulan and aurora it was all ‘i let her go’ instead of ‘i fucked her up for good for the next 11 years’ #and here ofc he doesn’t remember what he’s done #but he must have had an idea of how desperate he would have been as soon as emma and henry left and rumpel died and they were sent back to the EF #everybody loves to call out on all the crap hook has done and no matter what he does to try to change and show that the good form lover inside of him still stands he gets called out for being a lovesick puppy #but hey no neal is a good guy he was only trying to get back to his family or let emma find hers and fulfill her destiny yadda yadda yadda #wake up call: no #and i love that it is hook the one to make him see what he was willing to put on the line to get what he wanted #little bae despised magic and so did neal but he was willing to use it just to get back his family #he didn’t listen to belle when she insisted he was making a mistake and they should look for some other way #alas he didn’t 
In the end they show you that that Neal didn’t learn from his father’s mistake. 
Rumple and Bae. that scene killed me and I liked the fact that they didn’t focus on the relationship with emma but rather on the relationship with rumple because this is what the show was about. Rumple getting back his son and now he lost him again this time for good. 
Outlaw Queen
Honestly I love their chemistry (and he was totally checking her out) and I love much it paralleled their first time in the EF. I had already seen the sneak peek of this scene so I knew her seeing the tattoo was coming but I loved the aftermath. I loved that she ran, because it’s true to her character and it’s what she did all those years ago. 
And yet what was different is she came back this time and if you think about it this is a Regina with no memory of last year so she has no idea Marian died. She probably thinks he is a married man. Which would mean she lost her chance. 

Sidenote: How cute of a father is Robin? Seriously 
Much Love, Maii

Ahoy there, Jeff, Colleen & Lady!
Some random thoughts I had about the episode Quiet Minds:
• I really need to keep a box of tissues nearby when watching ONCE episodes. I sure could have used them at the end of this episode, especially when Rumple and Emma were saying their final goodbyes to Neal.
•  It was interesting that only Killian suspected the tragic consequences of Neal’s effort to bring Rumple back. He seemed to realize that only the darkest of magic could have accomplished it and that an even darker price would have to be paid. I think that was why we were witness to that unexpected “bro” hug Killian gave to Neal. It was his way of saying goodbye. 
• The black goo that oozed out of the Dark One’s vault to transform into Rumble was a terrific CGI effect and also reminded me of the black alien oil featured in many X-Files episodes.
• I think the necklace that Neal returned to Emma is going to feature in whatever magic is created to vanquish the Wicked Witch because, as Belle said, it was born out of true love, the strongest magic there is.
• The image of the floating head of Lumiere seemed very similar in look to the floating head image of the Wizard of Oz.
• And finally, since there are no good delis in Storybrooke where one can get a decent sesame seed bagel, one must assume that there are no characters from Jewish folktales residing in Storybrooke? 
Cannot wait to see Sunday’s episode and ONCE’s version of “High Noon” between Regina and Zelena. 
Take care,

Marilyn
