I'm so happy it's back! I'm also happy that I managed to not watch "Queen of Hearts" until just before last night's episode, so I had a double dose. Seeing those two episodes back-to-back really intensified the arc.
I had 2 teeny tiny quibbles, though. In "Queen of Hearts," when Team Princess was approaching Rumple's jail cell, Snow said something to Emma about "here's where your birth was prophesized." [sic] Grr, I know that usage is becoming more accepted, but there's just no need to bastardize the language that way!
The other was more substantial. In "The Cricket Game," when they used the dreamcatcher thingie on Pongo, it projected what he saw. But it should have projected what he perceived. Dog's don't see things the same way people do, and by his reaction when Cora-disguised-as-Regina arrived at Hopper's office, he knew something was wrong. So for his "memory" to be only as what a human would have seen ... that didn't ring true for me. In another context I might have suspected Gold of manipulating things, but I don't think that's the case here.
But I'm not going to let that spoil things for me in the slightest. Bring on next Sunday!
