I don't believe for a second that she really wants to redeem herself.

Me either!

Charming's speech to the townspeople. :swoon: And I love seeing "David" as a badass.

I wonder what the deal is with Jefferson's daughter. She must remember who her real father is now. Why hasn't he reconnected with her yet?

There was way too little of Emma & Snow for me tonight (made up a lot by the badass-ness of Charming though :swoon: ) but overall this episode was really great. Regina has done some horrible things but there was once a good person inside her and I think there could be again if the writers can figure out a way to write it well. We'll have to see how that goes though. ;) Her scenes with Henry at the end were nice but we all know that she's got a power hungry streak in her so we'll see if she can actually not use magic now. LOVED :kickass: Charming tonight and his scenes at the end were just awesome! Next week's episode looks like it's going to be really great too, loved the reveal at the end, so I'm excited to see what's next for everyone, especially for Emma & Snow and their predicament in the new charbroiled Fairytale Land. :biggrinbo

Well, everything has been a little crazy for the townspeople after the curse broke (and it hasn't been very long either) so maybe that reunion is still to come for them. I'm hoping to see them reconnect again too! I wonder how long he was away from her when he got trapped in Wonderland. :(

If Regina does a turn-around, Henry may be the key. True love conquers all, you know. ;)

The writers may not have it in mind at all, but I think it would be a good story line to compare Regina and Rumple and their love for their children impact their actions. It's a soft spot for both of them.

Not just them. I count at least seven people who are driven (and I do mean DRIVEN) by parental love: those two, Snow & Charming, Emma, Jefferson, Geppetto . . . have I forgotten anyone? It's an extraordinarily strong theme here.

That sounds about right and IMO, that theme being so prevalent throughout the show is one of the things that makes it so good. That kind of love is so powerful and it can make people do extraordinary things.

I'm very curious how long Cora has been trapped in this 'survivor safe haven' and especially if she's been there this whole time or if she really was sent to Wonderland and became the Queen of Hearts there (which is a big speculation that's been going around since last season). Hopefully we find out more when they go back to Emma & Snow's story in the next episode. :cheer:

And it begins with a viewer discretion warning - violence.

Spoilers begin:

We meet Lancelot in the very first scene, but he didn't seem very menacing to me.

Ick, Cora is pretending to be good and I think that Emma is buying it. Now Barbara Hershey's portrayal of Cora is menacing!

And Lancelot is a good guy!

Awww, Jefferson is afraid to go see his daughter. That is a believable reaction. He looks terrified.

I must be the only one who feels sorry for Regina right now. I hope her good side keeps emerging. And I hope Henry doesn't completely stand her up for lunch.

Holy smokes- violence indeed. Charming is certainly a badass now.

Yeah, definitely not a kids show. The CGI ogre makes the dragon look like a kitty.

I want to go to a OUAT con and wear Snow's white dress/pants outfit.

And it's over for another week. So much stuff happened. The only thing that made me tear up was when Snow looked back at the nursery and for a moment saw it as it was in happier times.

"I'm not used to someone putting me first." -Emma :wuzrobbed

Cue me sobbing after that scene, especially during the hug, and mad kudos to both actresses for making that such an emotional moment. :( And then Jefferson finally reunites with Grace and it was so sweet that I was sobbing again! I must be a pile of mush in my heart or something, LOL :lol:

I freaking love this show. So much stuff happened tonight but it was all awesome. The snakes about gave me a heart attack but yay Charming to the rescue. Loved Lancelot's part in Snow and Charming's story and I'm very happy that it wasn't anything that could come between them. Anyone else think Lancelot is somewhere in Storybrooke and that Cora was lying to Snow when she said he was dead? Just a hunch on my part. Mulan seemed much more rational this week and I really liked her by the end of the episode. LOVED badass Snow protecting Emma from the Ogre! Emma was so in awe of what her mother did and I loved watching their relationship change and grow throughout the hour. I could keep rambling for a while but I'll stop here because I'm trying to focus on Revenge now and it's not working to do both things. ;)

I was a sobbing pile of mush, too. :wuzrobbed This season is getting more and more awesome by the episode. And the reveal at the end?! :eek: Where's he been all this time?

Jefferson and Grace! Aww! Some nice moments throughout, but I think that was my favorite. Well, that and Emma's line about being put first.

Oh wow I was crying, too! Emma was perfect. Love this episode, sad for Lancelot. :(
This show just keeps getting better!

I ADMIT IT! I was mad at Henry for standing Regina up. Far be it from me to defend Regina, and I still think she has a LOT of stuff to work through, but she did the RIGHT thing by letting Henry go in the last episode and he just played her like a fiddle. :( That must hurt. I hope she doesn't take that rejection and go all evil and mean again. I have a feeling, though, with Cora coming back into the picture, we might see Regina side with Snow and Charming to fight to protect Henry. Remember, parental love is one of the biggest themes of the show...Regina would do anything to keep Henry safe. ESPECIALLY from Cora.

Interested to see how Rumple is going to fit into all this. And I'm pretty sure Lancelot isn't dead-dead. Besides, isn't Lacelot's greatest claim to fame the fact that he and Guinevere hooked up and that betrayal of Arthur was what brought about the destruction of Camelot? lol. The second I saw him show up and saw Snow so happy to see him, I was like, oh crap, Snow is Guenevere and Charming is Arthur! Might not be, but WHO KNOWS. It would be a very OoaT thing to do. :p

I thought he was the DA last year. I could be wrong though.

Yeah, I didn't feel sorry for Regina at all today. I might find it in myself to feel sorry for her if/when Cora ends up in Storybrook. Might. :slinkaway

Yes, King George was the DA who questioned Mary Margaret for Kathryn's murder back in season one so he's definitely been in town this whole time. Wonder what he's up to now though! :eek:

I just watched the Emma/Snow scenes again and still cried over them. Ginny & Jennifer are so good together and I totally believe that they're mother and daughter. Both of the characters are really starting to understand how much each has lost and their relationship is going to be so much stronger when they finally figure out a way home. I hope I don't end up crying every week though, LOL :lol:
