–Belle’s cloak was ugly.
even my old grandma never wore anything that ugly and she had some ugly moo moos
–There is a total lack of logic in this show. I mentioned a lot of this in the mixed but there was so much “convenience for the sake of plot!” Belle being there with a book, Rumple throwing a bag of anti magic into the bear’s mouth for reasons, Merida managing to knock off three arrows and everyone bows to her because “hey look what she can do!”
–The appropriation of Scottish highlander culture without really understanding it, and relying exclusively on stereotypes, is rather insulting.
–Belle’s cloak was ugly.
–The plot in Storybrooke has come to an utter standstill. Nothing is happening. Everyone stood around and stared at a magic mushroom and nothing happened.
–Merlin telling Emma that it doesn’t matter how he was in that movie theater. OMG. Just say that he projected himself to her! Make it up! Use a magical mcgufifn you have to! But don’t just wave your hand and go “it matters not, silly woman!”
–Rumple smashed Chip. ‘kay.
–According to everyone in SB, if Rumple loses his life that’s an acceptable price because he’s had so many chances. But Emma we totally have to save! OMG: get this through your heads, you hypocrites. The darkness has been canonically established to be a sentient entity that can corrupt even a SAVIOR. What does that mean? It means that Rumple was just as much under the influence of that darkness as Blessed Emma Swan. So it means we try to save BOTH. Because they BOTH matter and are family! COME ON. Remember when he sacrificed himself for his love and his son? For the town? He is worth fighting for, just like Emma.
–Rumple didn’t injure himself for his son, not even a little bit. Retcon. Horrible character assassination retcon. He did for Bae and he did it because he was scared. That mix of fear and heroism has always defined Rumple, it’s what made him complex and the writers just reduced him to a singular concept: cowardice. Malarkey. Absolute malarkey.
–Remember last week when Rumple talked about how he did everything for his boy! This show can’t even stay consistent from week to week, let alone arc to arc!
–“I killed Neal” *Emma doesn’t even acknowledge any of this*
–No. More. Magical. McGuffins. For. The. Love. Of. Everything.
“He was a lot of things to me” “The only conclusion was love”
DITTO here …. I rate this episode 3/10 probably my all time least favorite episode … JUST A FILLER with no redeeming qualities…. too much like the FROZEN arc …. bad writing no action for our CORE characters …. do the writers even know the stories that have come before this?
WHAT get my goat the most …. I came home early on purpose just so I would not miss this show… should have stayed where I was.
