My memories of what a Convention is centers around Comic Con, Wonder Con and Star Wars Celebration – lining up the night before to see what you want the next day, people everywhere, and rarely seeing the celebrities you came to see up close, unless it was through a camera lens on a panel stage.

When Colleen and I sat with Liz and Roxy at dinner months ago, they told us about about a Once Upon a Time convention by fans for fans.

They delivered.

Here is our Regal Con 2015 Review

Day 1 – Friday

We covered the event as press, and used Audioboom to Tweet short audio thoughts and pictures throughout the weekend to give our Twitter followers that couldn’t attend the feeling like they were coming along with us without having to wait for our official podcast to be released.

It was a little nerve-racking, but also exciting and fun to be the first panel on Friday and open the convention by hosting a panel about our podcast. It was my first panel hosting, ever. It was a blast, but I need to remember to bring a water bottle (for me) next time.

Huge thanks to our interviewees; Richard and Sarah Wiloski. They took photos, tweeted for us and we had a great interview with them about their cool podcast ( @SkywalkingPod )and Star Wars shout outs in Once Upon a Time. We have been on many fun adventures together, and this is one I’ll never forget. Thanks guys.

Our next interviewee was the fantastically talented, Erin Stegeman. She is the force (with the rest of her uber talented crew) behind “Once Upon a Anonymous” ( @OUATSpoof )a youtube parody of Once Upon a Time. She came in, as well as some of the cast members during the final shoot weekend for their upcoming OUAA Rock Opera. Much thanks and fist bumps to Erin for coming and chatting about her exciting project.

Here is a Tweet from a winner of one of our Regal Con Big Love packs!

The rest of our panel consisted of an intro of who Colleen and I are, how and why the podcast began and our amazing moments along the way; Cast voicemails, Our trip to Steveston, etc. Here is the audio from the panel:

http://www.onceuponatimepodcast.com/281

Final thoughts

The next panel we attended was the Cosplay panel hosted by Brandon Hillock ( @fanboybrandon ) dressed as Hook (incredible costume, btw) and featured a co-host dressed (incredibly as well) as Jefferson. The panel included a dance routine from another cosplayer (That was wonderful. :) ), discussions about cosplaying (including how the crew of OUAT assists cosplayers find elements that were used on the show), how to get started, etc.

The Wyndham Anaheim Garden Grove hotel was a great venue to hold the convetion. There were just enough rooms for events, and even had spots to sit down and collect your thoughts after meeting/getting an autograph/photo with your favorite OUAT cast member.

That was another amazing part of Regal Con, the accessibility of many of the cast members attending. It was incredible to walk though the lobby, hallway or the café in the hotel and see Lee Arenberg, Faustino Di Bauda, Beverley Elliot, Sean Maguire, Michael Coleman walking through and stopping to talk to fans. The cast members were so gracious and took some time to greet and talk a bit to the fans.

This was no Comic Con. It was better.

The Evil Regal Cocktail Party on Friday evening was an extension of that intimate interaction with the cast. This event gave the fans attending the feeling live we were celebrities at an after party you hear about in Hollywood, but we were allowed in to this party. The cast members did a great job moving throughout the crowd to give everyone an opportunity to interact with them. This was a great way to begin a great weekend.

Day 2 – Saturday

Bill Meeks and I participated in the 9:00AM “Heroes vs. Villains” panel. Lots of great information discussed about Heroes and Villains and how OUAT has treated them. Audio will be posted soon.

Then, Colleen and I met and got a photo with Lana. Amazing, and she knew about our podcast, too.

Joshua Reid Davis was a fun emcee. He interacted with the audience very well, even allowing the fans to put their questions in the question box. It was a convention for fans, by fans.

Panel with Eion Bailey, David Anders & Lee Arenberg was great. There was a running story throughout the panels about Lee Arenberg putting Faustino Di Bauda in the front seat of Pirates of the Caribbean to “see more of the action,” but he “saw more of the water,” it turns out.

Eion Bailey was asked if he thought August would be a great Author, and he responded yes and explained August would wrestle through the process, etc.

David Anders was asked if he would be interested in making an “Alias” movie, and he said he would be.

Lee Arenberg discussed how the network watches all kinds of information to track Once Upon a Time’s viewership on television, like live tweeting.

Life thought: Lee, “Believe in yourself, and others will believe in you, too”

Life thought: Eion: Real life is like OUAT Season 1, We need to wake up from a dream (of the trappings) of real life and know that we are all incredible beings.

Life thought: David, “Life is short. Do what you love.”

We met some AWESOME folks from some great blogs and podcasts, too

Doug and Jamie Marsh from @laughing_place

Bill Meeks from @GFStorybrooke

Marisa Serafini @SerafiniTV from @AfterBuzzTV

I contacted some after Regal Con, too like Joshua J and Matt from @geekgalaxycast. We have a voicemail from Joshua!

– Play the Voicemail

Lana’s panel was a lot of fun, of course!

Lana brought up the most incredible cosplayer who was The Evil Queen with the amazing blue dress from the episode, “An Apple Red as Blood”

The Cosplayer’s Twitter name is @ReiniSide and we are very fortunate to have a voicemail from her about the creation of the incredible dress from “An Apple Red as Blood” and her thoughts on Regal Con. Thanks, Reini. :)

– Play the Voicemail

The character of Regina inspires Lana in her own life. It makes her consider attitudes and how she handles certain things in her life.

The scene in Once Upon a Time that Lana had the most difficulty as an actress was filming the scene of ripping out her Father’s heart in the second episode of season 1. She had to go to a very dark place in her own self to understand Regina’s action to rip out her father’s heart.

Lana answered a question and discussed how protective she is in real life as a Mom, so yes Regina would be protective if Henry got married 1 day.

Lana was asked which episode of Once Upon a Time was her favorite. She enjoys the episode, “Welcome to Storybrooke”. Seeing life in Storybrooke right after the curse, etc was fun for her.

When Lana was asked about pranks on the Once Upon a Time set, Lana talked about pranks in Gold’s cabin with @robertcarlyle_ trying to make Lana laugh as she entered the room.

Lana was asked her favorite kiss on Once Upon a Time, she answered “Henry”

Tony Perez (Regina’s father on the show) is actually a poet and he wrote a poem for Regina, but Lana forgot to bring it to RC.

Lana loves deep sea fishing, camping, gardening. Outdoor activities. She also loves traveling and seeing the world.

I found someone that looks an awful lot like Ruby.

We added on the VIP dinner on Saturday night, there were no personal photos allowed, but the stories and memories will stay with me forever. We sat at Eion Bailey’s table and it was an incredible treat.

Next up was the Happily Ever After Ball

Here is Reini Side as The Evil Queen and her sister as Marion going into the Ball

#RegalCon Ball @1MichaelColeman @sean_m_maguire @QuestionAnders @leearenberg

#RegalCon Ball Pt. 2 @bexmader @TheReelBeverley @GilMcKinney

The Happily Ever After Ball was lots of fun. It was so cool to see many members of the OUAT cast dancing and having a great time with the fans that attended

Day 3 – Sunday

We attended the panel with Emilie De Ravin, Rebecca Mader and Sean Maguire.

Emilie found it a challenge to be in love with the Dark One.

Rebecca said her hips didn’t lie on the dance floor with the fans, and she sounded like Barry White this morning after the ball.

Rebecca would rather play Zelena than Charlotte from Lost.

Rebecca discusses that she is great at not breaking character, except for a scene #OnceAUponATime finale tonight.

A running theme with Rebecca was saying “hashtag blessed”. :)

Sean discussed that @PFischler and @bexmader have fun bts banter that some think is mean, but it’s fun.

Sean discussed the social media feedback on Zelena and Robin Hood’s baby would look like Shrek with a bow and arrow and a broomstick.

Rebecca wants to play the guitar, learn to speak Spanish, drive a stick shift car and record a song just for herself.

Emilie would like to travel outside of work travel. Own lots of land for gardens, rescue animals and Rebecca wants to live there.

Sean discussed that he was grumpy when he auditioned for RH, and was surprised when he got that part. He’s so happy he got it.

Sean said that (OUAT) drama needs obstacles, and the fans need to trust the writers. #HearHear

Rebecca’s takeaway from OUAT is the fans. She cares about the fans, and she enjoys interacting and maybe helping fans in their lives.

Sean’s takeaway is – socks. He may or may not be stealing socks. Blame Robin Hood.

Rebecca discussed stealing Zelena bras. @emiliederavin confesses she steals Zelena’s bras, too.

Sean thanks fans for telling him to not listen to Social Media haters. He doesn’t. He blocks and takes the good away from Social Media.

Next up was the panel with Faustino Di Dauda, Beverley Elliot, Michael Coleman and Gil McKinney

Gil McKinney gives a shout out to his dance crew.

Faustino gives his side of the POTC first time riding it story. Faustino thought it was more action, but it was more water.

Beverley was given names for a new night club in Storybrooke, Granny’s Panties. The Howling Moon another name.

Michael discussed how he likes interacting with fans on the show, face to face, not like theater.

Beverley loves the stories of what OUAT means to fans. The show can help people, and she loves that.

Gil enjoyed the ball last night. Gil would be open to a Granny/Eric romance. @TheReelBeverley said meet me at the Howling Moon.

Faustino favorite off camera moment – Lee’s funny character he creates. The world’s worst acting coach.

Beverley fav off camera moment – spilling an entire beer in @robertcarlyle_

Michael tells about filming the castle storming scene, everyone was tired, and @ginnygoodwin said, “We need some Air Supply” contd

cont’d Michael told how they sang “All out of love”. So fun.

Gil sang “Part of Your World”. So good.

Beverley sang an original song “I’m mad at my myself”. She is a fantastic singer!

Beverley sings with a female singing group called, August.

Michael explained that Disney has a special place in his heart. He thanks the fans for their love to his family.

Faustino is always thankful for special moments like when it began to snow during the scene with Snow in the glass coffin, or when the deer walked into a scene they were filming on location in the forest.

Gil wants to go back to #OnceAUponATime, and he did his best in the moment with the time he had on the show.

Beverley’s daughter Sally coached her for her audition for Granny. She just “knew” she would get the part.

Beverley said she could knit when she got the (Granny) role, but not really. She quickly had to learn to knit while she was on holiday.

Michael’s closing thought – Don’t be afraid to go after something you love.

Beverley’s closing thought – You will make mistakes in life. Forgive yourself and keep going forward.

Gil’s closing thought – in life, everyday, Try to do something (nice) for someone else. Live outside yourself.

Faustino’s closing thought – In life, you are enough.

Michael’s daughter’s closing thought – “You get what you get. Don’t get upset.”

I had the great privilege of joining the Greetings from Storybrooke panel ( @gfstorybrooke ) panel hosted by ( @billmeeks ) and ( @beccacanote ). We discussed dragons, Lily and gave away prizes. It was held in the huge Santa Rosa ballroom. I felt like I was in a rock band.

Press Interviews:

Big thanks (times infinity) to Chelsea for working with the celebrities (and their schedules) to offer Press Room interviews. Our readers and listeners love it!

Diversity

We unfortunately did not get to attend all the panels and offerings, but the great thing about Regal Con was the diversity of the panels, add on events and even concerts. There were lots to do and see however you express your OUAT fandom.

Final Thoughts to the Regal Con Team

Roxy, Liz, Chelsea and the rest of the Regal Con team, volunteers, etc did a great job on Regal Con! Sure, there were bumps along the way (Panel participant shifting, schedule time changes, communicating of rule changes to name a few), but we were very impressed with how the issues were addressed and resolved.

Throughout the weekend, I felt the term “By the fans, for the fans” wasn’t just a catch phrase, but it was the DNA of this incredible convention from planning, preparation and execution.

One more thing to the Regal Con team. We all realize all the hard work that has gone into putting this weekend on, but know that the memories and moments you have given the fans of the magical show will stick with us forever. Thank you doesn’t seem enough to say in return, but it’s a start.

Oh, and where do we sign up to be a part of Regal Con 2016? :)

Once Upon a Time Fan Podcast panel
Play Rumpel intro
Say hello
Who listens to OUAT Fan Podcast?
Who are we-
Jeff
Colleen
How the podcast started
What resonated with us;
1. It was created by 2 of the writers of Lost.
2. It was the storybook characters (Disney movies), but different.
3. It had themes we all can relate to and discuss;
Love
Revenge
Redemption
Relationships
Choices
Forgiveness
Hero
Villain
It started as conversations on the couch
Intro to some highlights
Play the Celeb VM mixes
Where we’ve gone; Paley Fest, D23, WonderCon, Disneyland Meetup, Season 4 premiere in Hollywood.
Trip to Steveston
Who has been there?
Library (Nikka Fish and Marine), Granny’s Diner (Cannery Café), Bridge studios recreated part of Moncton street to film “exteriors” at the studio, We were the first podcast to broadcast live during the filming of ‘The Doctor’ we saw the scene where Dr. Whale went into Gold’s shop to get his arm reattached. We saw the Charming punching Dr. Whale and the scene when Regina sees Daniel in the rain.

Interview Skywalking Through Neverland Richard and Sarah Wiloski
Shout outs to Star Wars in Once Upon a Time
Emma’s hero journey (Joseph Campbell);
The Call to Adventure – Henry telling her that it was her destiny to bring back their happy endings. Refusal of the Call – Emma didn’t believe that she was the savior or a hero for most of the first season. Meeting with the Mentor – Emma had lots of mentors and teachers through the series, but the big one was August. He tries to get her to take a leap of faith and believe. She did finally believe in her role of hero/savior
In season 3 we see Regina takes on more of a Yoda role in teaching Emma “Magic” which has elements of “The Force”
We have a “Sith Lord” in OUAT known as the Dark Once because of the power of the Dark One dagger. There is Dark Magic and Light Magic.
There is lots of “Magic” choking, pushing, lifting and manipulating of objects to restrain people. That looks like The Force to me. Anyway, those are my thoughts on what I wanted to bring out.
You can mention that Emma, the Hero/Savior is named Princess Leia in the episode “Snow Drifts”.

Here my thoughts for this episode

Love Regina talking Emma down it was great seeing young Emma and Lily
My question is since the apprentice told Lily the truth shouldn’t she go after the author Isaac…

My theory is the author going rewrite everything and the villains going to be the heroes and heroes going to be the villains and everyone going to disappear from Storybrook into enchanted forest and since we know Henry was born here he be left alone and he going to be the new author because Isaac will probably died and Henry will have to rewrite it back they way it was

From Helen

Big love to the Roneys. New listener and first time emailing the show…so cue the music.

I have a theory that may be a simple ending to the season and put up a big bad for the next season. What if…like Emma’s potential for darkness was transferred to Lilly, they find a way to transfer Lilly’s darkness to Zalena’s baby, if she is truly pregnant? I totally do not like this theory but…you know how this show is with parallels. Yuck. Or perhaps the transferring vessels need to be of the same age so Emma may take back her potential for darkness. It’s seems Emma thinks she can carry all this darkness and still be light. But that would make Lilly and more importantly Mal happy. And I can see those two fitting into the Storybrooke community since it looks like Mal has become comfortable in the Mayor’s office.

I couldn’t help thinking that Regina and Emma were playing Cagney and Lacey.

I don’t know if Regina was showing “righteous anger.” Anger is anger whether you think it is wrong or right. I feel she was just so frustrated with Robin. Here she risks her safety to come rescue him and he’s like….”Thanks but no thanks.”

And that leaves the question…WHERE IS ROLAND anyway?! Oh, well. Maybe next episode he’ll come home from school.

Thanks for your podcasts,
Helen

Hi Jeff and Colleen,

I am on my lunch break walking the parking lot at about 3 AM as I type this. And Jeff, yes I do have some Star Wars references for you In a bit.

I only watched the episode once so I could be misrembering but I thought the Sorcerer sounded an awful lot like the Cave of Wonders in Aladdin.

I wonder if Andy and Eddie are Mystery Science Theater 3000 fans because one of the locations was Hopkins, MN which is where MST3K was based out of.

Lily telling Emma to shoot her reminded me of the climax of Return of the Jedi in the throne room when The Emperor taunted Luke to give into his hatred and strike him down so his journey to the dark side will be complete.

Here’s where I lose probably a bunch of Oncers – My heart sank when I saw Rebecca Mader in the credits and it has nothing to do with her. I don’t have any interest in the character. It’s not dislike in the JR Ewing love to hate way. I just want the character to go away. I don’t care what she does, I just want her scenes to be over as soon as possible to get on to something else. For me, Zelena is the Jar Jar Binks/NikkI and Paulo of Once Upon a Time.

But enough negativity. Thanks for the podcast and keep up the great work.

From Chris

I apologize for the double email But I want to clarify that I don’t mean to say that I think Rebecca Mader is to blame for my indifference to Zelena. It’s just that the writers haven’t done anything to make me personally care anything about the character. With Regina, Rumple, Cruella, Hook, Pan, and Robin, I wanted to know more about them right off the bat. With Zelena, I have none of that interest.

Maybe it’s just me.

From Chris Tipton

To answer your questions Jeff, i am a star wars nut!!! I love it!! As for my favorite episode this season, that would have to be “best laid plans”

Onto my feedback. Once got back in my good graces this week, while not a spectacular episode, still very good.

I seriously hope there is more to the Sorcerer. I hope this was just sort of like when they use the communicators in star wars…. If this is all there is to him is a big swirling blob then its a huge letdown. Nice to finally put to bed that they are different… Entities at least. So apparently it was still the author who wrote everything that came after he got trapped. Nice to have that addressed.

Im going to say Cruella is definitely gone. We saw the body and a coffin. Shes gone.

Im extremely disappointed that Regina took Belles heart without permission. It was amazing (and foolish) when Will told Rumple hes already in the process of stealing Belles heart. Im very proud of Rumple at least doing one thing right and stepping out of the way of Will and Belle. This was a very sad scene. After everything Rumples done i still somehow feel for him. I just wish he could get what he wants without hurting people.

Im glad Emma showed some remorse for Cruella and its nice to know last week was just a stepping stone and not as severe as i thought. I loves seeing more backstory between Emma and Lily. It was extremely heartbreaking. I actually like the twist that fate drove them together, and the way they handled Lilys life being inherently full of darkness made sense. Im actually starting to enjoy the way they’re handling Emma “going dark”, its just a steady slide. I hope there’s an epic payoff. I don’t really mind them using fate to explain all the conveniences away, but it is still kind of cheap. Regina talking Emma down was awesome, this whole scene was amazing. Im very glad Emma did the right thing. Maybe she won’t go dark? This definitely puts it in doubt a little bit. I do worry what them taking her to Storybrooke may unleash. I LOVE that the apprentice got to Lily in our world and told her everything. Very cool. I guess he can literally go to any realm at any time, and Lily calling him yoda was one of my favorite lines ever.

Zelena is pregnant…. WOW didn’t see this coming. Everyone was saying that Regina was probably pregnant, but no, this was just shocking to me. I do kind of wonder how Zelena got pregnant and Robin still never noticed the necklace. This was an awesome twist.

An update on last week, after listening to all the podcasts, rewatching the episode and more thought, i do like last weeks episode better. I still have some problems but i dont hate it so much anymore. I would say… 6.75/10 skinned authors. As for this week, i really enjoyed it. 8/10 dragon leashes

From Becca

This episode was killer. One of the best I can remember. Your first thoughts podcast hit on a lot of the things that stood out to me. Here are the things that have been on my mind since re-watching:

Emma: She seems to be in one never-ending jaw clench this season. I can see why. There is a lot piled on her plate right now-

regret over killing Cruella, (possibly a bit of satisfaction over killing Cruella as well??),
fear that killing Cruella means she is going dark (I know she holds to her own free will, but perhaps deep inside she is afraid that darkness is overtaking out of her control)
unforgiveness with her parents,
lily’s drama,
stuff with the author/Gold
Protecting Henry

I’m not so much concerned with her going dark due to a conscious choice, as I am of her being so overwhelmed by all of these stressors and reaching a breaking point.

I’d have to agree with some listeners about Emma needing to forgive her parents…the thing about forgiveness is: it’s for your own good to forgive others. Forgiveness doesn’t mean pretending that the hurt never happened. In fact, ignoring a hurt and pretending it didn’t happen is basically the opposite of forgiveness. Forgiveness means that you accept that the choices were made, no matter how bad they were, and you refuse to let feelings of bitterness or hate affect your life and future decisions.

And forgiveness is a choice that sometimes must be made over and over again. I don’t expect Emma to be perfect and completely forgive her parents in an instant and never struggle with the decisions they made regarding her and Lily. I just want to see Emma start in the direction of coming to terms with the choices made. I want to see her choose to be an adult and recognize that her parents made a difficult decision that probably wasn’t ideal.

All this bitterness is doing is eating away at her. It is slowly draining the life out of her. She is losing her personality and the things that make her “Emma”. It seems that every episode she becomes more solemn and melancholy.

*And one more thing about forgiveness: the “guilty” party doesn’t have to be sorry to be forgiven! Forgiveness isn’t a bargain where each party gives and each party takes. Forgiveness isn’t a cop-out for bad behavior. Forgiveness is a freely given, undeserved gift for those who are given it. And it is takes a lot of strength to offer that free gift and expect nothing in return. But it is very freeing for those who discover the act of living unoffended lives.*

She can forgive her parents even if they never apologized and sincerely say “we were wrong”. It’s about hate and bitterness losing it’s hold on Emma, not about her parents repenting of all wrong and making amends for their wrongs. I’d love to see Snow and Charming right their wrongs, but Emma has control over how this affects her and I really want to see her personal development in this area. Fingers crossed that this is in store before the season ends!

Robin Hood’s duty to Zelena and the baby:

Does he really need to stay with her? Maybe I’m just super insensitive and not well versed in baby-daddy etiquette, but I feel like if you were manipulated into conceiving with the wicked witch who killed your wife and disguised herself as her, that should earn you a get-out-of-daddying-free card?! But I guess the poor child would be doomed with Zelena as the only parental influence in its life, so maybe its best for Robin Hood to stay.

…But I can’t even imagine how Robin + Zelena co-parenting will even work! How is he going to agree with any decisions that Zelena makes for their child? She killed his wife. Marriages (or any relationship) can’t last without some trust. And I’m just guessing he probably has zero trust in her? The child might motivate him to stay, but there is no way that Robin Hood will find a way to co-parent with Zelena, right? Just no way.

Any thoughts on how that might work?

Thanks to you both for the podcast. It is a highlight every week.

-Becca

P.S- from my first e-mail from the Cruella episode, you deduced that I’m from central time zone based on my OUAT time slot of 7-8pm. You are correct :) I’m deep in the heart of Texas. Wish I was closer to California- I’d come to RegalCon!

Hi Colleen and Jeff!

First, you both made comments that you felt may get you some nasty emails during the Heart of Gold main show. Here’s mine

Hehe, Just kidding! I think everything you said was right on point…both of you.

OHHHH MY!! This was a great episode…and then the last minute happened and I GROOOOANNED out loud. I had a feeling it was coming and I was yelling “no, don’t do it, don’t let it be a baby”…and then, there it was, the Telenovelas moment of OUAT. I feel we have enough going on with Robin and Regina without this being necessary. I know it’s bad, but initially, I was like “so what if she’s pregnant-she totally deceived you and is a rotten person, just take Roland and leave with Regina!” But, Robin’s honor would never let him do that and Zelena knows this. So, the only reasoning that makes this ok, is if it’s a fake pregnancy. Then again, the other thing I thought was “might as well go big or go home”…what if Regina is pregnant too?? We did have the episode where she told Emma she eats like a child and was eating healthy, kale salad…? After re-watching, I was better with the ending realizing that it hopefully is a last ditch desperate attempt to keep Robin from Regina and get back into Storybrooke. Fingers crossed. Switching gears: I think my theory on the sorcerer being her father got another boost. The apprentice told Lilly if she noticed how the necklace complimented her tattoo so well, and the Hat has a star with a crecsent moon…thoughts? By far, the Emma/Regina chemistry and friendship was the best this episode…I could watch their scenes together over and over. I love watching their relationship develop. It has progressed perfectly. Not too rushed or too slow. Ok…the scene. Probably one of the best scenes the entire series in my opinion. Emma wanting to shoot Lilly and Regina talking her down. Written, acted, and shot beautifully!! Even if we all knew she wasn’t going to do it-it was sooo well done! I still have goose bumps. I feel the end scene overshadowed how great of a moment this truly was, but I just loved it! Now everyone is coming for the author!! I think he and the apprentice have big parts to play in the finale which hopefully means we’ll finally get to see him released from the hat!

Things that made me go hmmm….why did Regina give Maleficent Belle’s heart? Why not put it in your vault with the heart lockers and protection spells? And Maleficent is just the “Mistress of all Evil” we all knew. She couldn’t stop Will from going out the window-or Dragon out and go get it back? She lost her baby to the Charmings, and did nothing really to stop them-sooooo…basically, she puts people to sleep? I still think Belle gave her heart willingly-but when Regina told her to “run along and forget all this” is when she forgot. Why did Hook and Belle stop trying to get the Apprentice out of the hat? He was so upset about it and it seemed like a good mission and sure better than what they’ve been doing. Why did the apprentice tell Lilly everything and not Emma? He should have gotten them both together as young ladies, told them both what was up, and they could have helped eachother this whole time! Just saying. Unless that would have messed with Emma’s destiny to be the savior…? He basically told Lilly she was doomed from the get go…I kinda feel like he left her with no hope, and helped put her on her path for revenge. Just didn’t make sense, what do you all think?

Great episode. Lilly and Emma being eachother Ying and Yang is going to get very interesting. Can’t wait for next week and all the “Mother’s!”
Big love to both of you and all the Oncers. Talk to you next week, Trace

From Brad

The next time you’re on a bus, take note of the rambling old man in the back. He may actually have all the answers you’re looking for. Now onto the Things I Learned this week on the episode, Lily.

#1. Pay no attention to the
sorcerer behind the curtain.

#2. Fate is like that annoying
little fly that keeps buzzing in
your ear.

#3. Think twice before calling a
women’s friend a loser.

#4. Emma needs a bumper
sticker that reads, “I brake for
wolves”.

#5. Sometimes one pack of Advil
just isn’t enough.

#6. Free burgers for a week
would make anybody smile.

#7. Regina was so close when
she stated that fate was a
female dog, it turns out it’s
actually a wolf.

#8. Emma might have learned her
fast and furious driving skills
from Dominic Torreto.

#9. Lily is a fan of Star Wars.

#10. Even the apprentice has
to pay bus fare.

– Brad
