Everything about Alice’s behaviour makes sense, given her upbringing shut away from the world with just one person to talk to. She really was Daddy’s Little Princess until her mumbleteenth birthday when she escaped from the tower, so it’s understandable that she still talks like a five-year-old. And, in real life, I hope I could feel compassion and patience for any such emotionally-stunted person who crossed my path. But I just wish that someone on the show would say “Alice, you say some important things, but the way you say them needs work.”
–That is an incredibly elaborate shrine to Belle. And seems to be appropriating certain aspects of Mexican culture in ways that make no sense.
They had to work a Coco reference into the show. Rumpel wants to be that boy who goes to be with his dead loved ones. Only, that boy was doing it to bring joy and music back to the world of the living.
