What did you think of the episode?
Will you carry me down the aisle that final day with your tears and cold hands shaking from the weight?
When you lower me down beneath that sky of gray, let the rain fall down and wash away your pain.

It was nice getting some insight into Whale, how he's wanted so badly to do good and bring life.

Rumple is aggravating me, but he's been known to do that on occasion.

I missed the first 10 minutes so (which means I missed the Snow/Belle scene. :()

Liked:
-Rumpel FINALLY cashing in on his deal (but I HATED that he threatened my favorite characters)
-The Outsider
-Red and Whale on the docks

Disliked:
-All of the flashbacks.
-Cora
-The fact the promo said "THREE WEEKS" from tonight. :x
-Regina running to mommy's arms like a five year old again. THINK FOR YOURSELF YOU IDIOT!

Yeah, overall, I didn't like this character.

Spoiler:
Lana said in an interview that the reason Regina hates Snow so much for what happened to Daniel is that she's so attached to her mother and so longs for her mother's approval and love that psychologically she can't place all that blame and anger on Cora, so she places it on Snow instead.


So I think we got a really vulnerable moment there in car when Regina just wants so badly to be her mother's girl and to be loved.

But I agree, she does need to stop and think for moment that Cora's way is NOT the way to go.

The most sensless episode ever. Regina reverting to EQ just like that? Nope. NOPE. It was so clear Cora was lying, how could Regina not feel it? Damn that witch. I like her as a villain, but this plot is too weak. This whole working on to redeem herself just got a long shot in the head. Congrats, creators. It was more stupid than twisted games in LOST.
And this whole bunch of a good guys... they were just waiting in the hospital. Only Ruby was actually doing something. So yeah, Emma, looks like karma is going to bite you pretty badly. Now you have not only one, broken and trying hard to be better ex-witch, but reverted Evil Queen and her twisted mommy.
Rumple's entering Snow's apartent - enter of the dragon :P Let's just hope he's gonna be with Cora and Regina when he comes back. Oh, the trio vs stupid "good" guys.
And now... 3 weeks of break...
Be the leaf.

I did not enjoy this episode. Everyone was shown in their most negative light. Regina falling for Cora's trap, Mr. Gold making threats, Belle's memory loss, Dr. Whale almost committing suicide, the "good guys" actually debating whether or not to let an innocent man die. And the flashbacks were pretty boring apart from Rumpel's scenes. I did not like this episode.

Poor Whale. His episodes seem destined to be unpopular. :(

Likes:
It confirmed what I said a few months ago: Emma favor to Rumple will be to find Bae.
We are 4 weeks away from finding out if Bae is Neal or not.
The chemistry between Dr. Whales and Rudy. Dr.Red maybe?
Cora up to her old tricks.
Rumple didn't thin twice about healing Greg the outsider or Hook
Henry acknowledge how Dr. Frankenstein isn't in his book.

Dislikes:
That kiss between Rumple and Cora. I almost threw up again.
Belle breaking the chip cup.
Regina falling for Cora's old tricks
The threat Rumple gave to everyone.
Emma power to see if someone is lying isn't working right.
Leroy wanting an innocent person to die regardless if he saw magic or not.
Hate that the Superbowl and The Oscars are the reason why the show will not be on for a few weeks.

Oh, not to worry about Emma; she's a Charming. Things always work out for them no matter what they do or whether they deserve it. Regina actually does a heroic deed in saving a little girl on a horse and she gets consigned to a life of loneliness. She does another good deed in trusting her son, even when every instinct for survival says to keep Cora away, and she gets framed for murder and said son doesn't even question his ex-con birth mother when she tells him the mother that raised and loved him was guilty. Emma will always win because she's one of the 'good' guys, so don't worry about her.

Trying desperately not to look at spoilers above since I've not watched this (hasn't aired where I am -- yet) but I'm surprised by the way the votes are going down. It looked like it would at least be a fun episode in the flashback parts. (C'mon, Dr. Frank has to be awesome.)

Oy vey! The worst is having to wait 3 weeks for the next episode.

Regina reverting to EQ just like that? Nope. NOPE. It was so clear Cora was lying, how could Regina not feel it?

Spoiler:
Lana said in an interview that the reason Regina hates Snow so much for what happened to Daniel is that she's so attached to her mother and so longs for her mother's approval and love that psychologically she can't place all that blame and anger on Cora, so she places it on Snow instead.


That's classic enmeshed behavior/approval addiction for the child of someone who has a personality disorder, likely Narsicistic PD. All these Regina/Cora episodes trigger me so bad since I have a mother just like Cora(except without the magic, thank God). Their scenes are quite realistic. I'm screaming at the TV, "NOOOOOO!!!! DON'T BELIEVE HER!!!" but of course, I've done the self help work to get past my mommy dearest.

And you "good guys," don't you know that no good deed goes unpunished?

Noooo! Chip! I felt so bad for Rumple by the end of this (still not hating Hook though)!

Definitely not buying Cora's story.

For Dr. Frankenstein's brother, I just have to say that it was moving that he wanted Dr. F to shoot him, and, this might just be me, but I felt a slight Hunchback of Notre Dame vibe.

And last but not least: Woah what was that between Cora and Rumple? Were they... lovers? :shock:
Hook: "Thank you, my lady."

I actually liked the Frankenstein backstory. I didn't think I would because his dad was such a &*%$#, but I guess Gerhardt killing him brightened it a bit for me. That sounded so terrible, but it is true.

I'm glad no one actually considered letting the stranger die except Whale (who was kinda lit) and Leroy.

I really enjoyed the interaction between Whale and Ruby.

More to come after I re-watch... :)

I could watch Rumple tell people off all day, its a hoot.
Hook talking about his other appendages - his lines are the hysterical.
"We were cursed" ha ha ha ha. That is THE best line/reason EVER.

That kiss between Rumple and Cora. Gag. Want to know that story, though!

Was I the only one who loved Mr. Gold's threat to the Charming's? (I absolutely LOVED it!)
Cora and Rumple, did they ever...you know.(Get it on?)Love to see that story.
Regina, even if you are reverting back to your lovely evil ways, I still love you. Not to quote the Charming's but, I will always love you.(lol)
Ugh, three weeks until I get to see Regina, Rumple, and Cora...how will I survive?

No. I found it particularly delightful. :lol: Not gonna happen, but still a great line.

I know, right? I know they won't kill the Charming's but it was still awesome to hear Mr. Gold threaten it.

Does anyone else feel bad for Hook? Maybe I'm getting soft in my old age, but I'm starting to feel sorry for the guy. Really. Look at what's happened to him since he got to Storybrooke: He got whacked in the head by Belle...Was given a beat-down by Rumpel, on the deck of his own ship no less...Hit by a car...Nearly choked to death by Rumpel (what is that cane made of, anyway?)...And abused at the hospital by Emma. What's next? Shot by Granny with an arrow? Bitten on the a$$ by Red? Kicked in the ball$ by Henry? Someone get that man some Vicodin!
