Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat!?!?!?!? Rumpel is a beast? Which beast? and a crocodile hauting Hook! How on earth have I missed these two things. {{hanging my head in shame}}

Wow, get thee to a DVD player or computer ASAP and watch episode 1x12 "Skin Deep" from last season and then watch or rewatch this past week's episode so you can get caught up on things! ;)

I love how this show cleverly intertwine each fairy tales to connect with one another. I find it neat that Rumpel is the beast and now the crocodile that haunts Captain Hook :lol:

Yes, so clever, one of the many reasons I love this show so much! They don't show the episode titles on screen but somehow I'd seen beforehand that this ep was called "Crocodile." Yet even with that, even with the captain calling Rumple "crocodile," and even with being about 95% sure that the captain would end up being Hook ... I still didn't make the connection until the scene where Rumple cuts off his hand. Yeesh, how dense am I?

MYSTERY SOLVED! I just figured out the Dr. Whale name! (To be fair, a bunch of other fans on the OuaT Facebook page figured it out at the same time, after watching the latest promo clip, but I did it without reading what they wrote, so I'm happy. :lol: )

If you watched any of the promos, it looks like Dr. Whale = Dr. Frankenstein. And who directed the most famous Frankenstein film . . . ?

Yeah, Dr. Whale's identity has been figured out on TWOP also.


I found a very interesting blog article on Rumple

Which OUAT facebook group are you in? I follow or are part of three of them (Once Upon a Time-Fan Community, Once Upon a Time Fans, and the ABC feed for the show) and I'm just curious if I would have seen you in any of them. They are pretty fun discussion places full of really smart people. Some of those folks really did figure things out pretty fast but it should still be a fantastic episode (if they're right!). :biggrinbo

I'm on the ABC page. I don't post there that often, though, so I don't know if you'd have seen me!

I don't post there much either so we have more than likely missed each other! ;) I do like to post in the other two communities I mentioned earlier though which are both really fun. Let me know if you want to check them out! There are usually tons of pics, articles, and sometimes spoilers posted there and both boards are full of other big OUAT fans. :)

This week's episode looks perfect for Halloween!! :D

I haven't gotten to watch the whole episode yet (this was not a good episode to only see the last 15 minutes of because I was totally lost!) but what did you guys think about the show tonight? I plan to watch the entire episode later tonight but figured I would bump up the thread anyway. :P

I liked it. There were a few flaws (the "magic as addiction" idea has been done to death, for instance), but I thought it was a clever idea and well executed.

I've heard some fans complaining that "the Doctor" of the title wasn't a fairy tale character, but seems to me the writers have already shown a willingness to go outside the boundaries in that department, anyway. Mulan isn't exactly from a fairy tale, either, is she? Or Lancelot. Or Midas.

I wasn't that crazy about it. The scenery chewing with Regina and zombie Daniel in the stable was OTT even for a show about a town full of fairytale characters. :lol:

I wonder what Dr. Whale's world is called? Hollyvania? Transylwood? Until proven otherwise, I'm assuming his land is where all the old horror films come from. Yes, I know Frankenstein is from a book, but the styling and costuming is more Hollywood horror.

Lots of Jackson in the flashbacks. We've seen him as a father living in squalor to save himself from himself and now we've seen him as an arrogant jackass who's good at his job and damn well knows it. Can't wait to see how they fill that gap! With the way things usually go, the change in personality comes when Grace's mother dies (or gets trapped somewhere).

Next week is Emma's backstory. There's a spoilery promo from CTV here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=a8UjNGQrpEs). Henry's dad is totally Bae. He's gotta be!

I liked it. I was stumped until the end to find out who Dr. Whale is. And by the way, what a clever way to name him. I had to have someone help me out as to why his name is Whale, but the reason is certainly creative. :) If you're like me and didn't know, look here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Whale).

His name is Jefferson, not Jackson, and I didn't mind seeing him a whole lot in this episode at all! :biggrinbo :swoon:

Really enjoyed the episode tonight although I think the next big mystery question for the show is going to be, "Who is Dr. Whale's brother??!" because that is literally the one question I was left with at the end! :lol: Hopefully this Daniel thing with Regina will help her move on from her pain and keep her on the path to redemption. I love Regina being bad but she can still be ornery and do some not great things without being completely evil. She started off good and I think she can find that part of herself again someday. It was fascinating to watch how Jefferson, Whale, and Rumple all manipulated her to find her evil side (evil isn't born...it's made :() and I felt bad for her when she finally had to say goodbye to Daniel again. I'm glad she's talking to someone like Archie to help her because it tells me how much she really does love Henry and want to do the right thing for him. I freaking LOVED Emma & Hook's interaction and that the women didn't take any of his stories for truth right from the get go. I also loved Emma & Snow's little eye contact thing that allowed Snow to distract Hook just in time for Emma to pull her knife on him. Don't mess with the Charming family! :cheer: Speaking of them I also enjoyed Henry & Charming's little interaction again although I'm getting very anxious for this family to be together again at some point. I can see how they're setting up the stories and the villains for later in the season but daggone it, I want my Charmings together again soon! :(

I WANT NEXT WEEK'S EPISODE NOW. That's the one I've been waiting for since I first heard about it weeks ago. Emma back story!!!!! :biggrinbo

The episode may answer a few questions but will probably ask more questions.
