Perhaps there could have been more quiet moments as well, especially near midway of the season, It was problem after problem after problem and some episodes took place in time gaps of at least a day even though we had to wait a whole weak.[adrotate group="5"]May 26, 2013 at 3:29 pm #196127obisgirlParticipant
You mean this coming season? I hope so. With the exception of what’s going pn Neverland, I expect things to be quieter in Storybrooke. So our characters can breathe and relax for once. With Gregmara in Neverland with Henry and Belle’s cloaking the town again, I don’t foresee trouble happening.
But at the same time, I don’t want Storybrooke to be forgotten. Fewer places to focus on next season, the better. I hope next season focuses between Neverland/Fairytale land and maybe, every once in awhile, we take a peak at what’s going on in Storybrooke. But we shouldn’t focus a lot of attention there.May 26, 2013 at 3:32 pm #196128
No, no I was talking about season 2 I felt things were going so fast especially during the second half when certain episodes time laps happened in less than a day even though from the audience perspective we had to wait a week.May 26, 2013 at 3:35 pm #196126obisgirlParticipant
Yes, I agree to that too.May 27, 2013 at 2:45 pm #196262cassandraParticipant

Yeah,that was one of my problems as well.Despite the staggering amount of plot developments during the course of the season the pace was at times so fast that i feel like there was no time for any of it to sink in and have some sort of impact on the characters.Some quieter moments to see how all the developments have affected them would be a welcome change in season 3.May 27, 2013 at 3:45 pm #196278angiebelleParticipant
Agreed! I missed the quieter slice of life moments we got in the first season. Let them relax a little before you throw stuff at them! All of my favorite scenes, the ones I watch over and over, are the character moments not the action adventure.May 27, 2013 at 10:44 pm #196347
That’s what I would have like to see, I mean like in the Episode when Emma got home and she walks into Snow and Charming mating, she and Henry were going to make taco's I mean yes that’s not as exciting as a magic or sword duel but a nice peaceful moment with Emma and Henry making Taco's would have been nice, you know I nice breather. Also and this is a different matter that I brought up earlier, this season I felt was very “expansive” as I like to put it. Season 1 had a very clear cut story line, this one you could easily get lost (No pun intended) because of the many plot points happening especially by the end of the season. Imean first it's Cora and Hook, then It's Cora in SB and turning Regina evil then it's the Home Office as well as Regina then it's just the Home Office. That’s a lot to remember.June 10, 2013 at 9:07 pm #197831pixiexwParticipant
See what I think puts a lot of people off this season is that they focused a lot on Rumple and Regina- characters I like but don’t particularly care about. I really wanted to see the little scenes. I was looking forward to seeing the Charming’s come together and unite as a family. I never cared for the whole redeeming Regina storyline of the idea of Snow turning dark. I like Hook’s character but really think he needed to let it go an awful lot sooner. As for Greg and Tamara, I’ve only seen YouTube clips of these two so far and I’m already dreading meeting them. Everything just needs to slow down- I won’t give up on it yet and there are some things I loved to see but there’s a lot I missed. Parts of me feel Snow and Charming were more couple-y before the curse was broken. They act like the parents of a 28 year old where as I saw them to be more young hearted and still fiery. They have technically only been married a short time and Snow would’ve been pregnant for most of that. I’m also disappointed that I don’t like Belle, she annoys me too much because as Belle she had no flaws! There were so many wrong decisions in this season and I just really hope they are learned from in season 3June 10, 2013 at 9:12 pm #197832angiebelleParticipant
Belle has no flaws? I’d say she is a little foolhardy- she goes after a monster without a clear plan of attack, and during “The Outsider” I was yelling at the screen- “Belle! Don’t put the gun down in enemy territory!” She is book smart but not always street smart.
I was disappointed with the lack of Charming family scenes too…but I think they are coming with everyone stuck on a ship together with a common goal. That will be great. 🙂June 10, 2013 at 9:24 pm #197834PriceofMagicParticipant
I like Belle and Rumple so I’m never going to complain when they are the focus. It would’ve been nice to see some transition of Belle during episode 2 and 3 going from “I’m going to stay with you” in episode 1 to “I’m leaving because you can’t be honest with me” in episode 4. There seemed such a difference in their interactions between their last scene in episode 1 to their first scene in episode 4 without much explanation.
I also think part of the reason this season isn’t as liked as the first is that the introduced MAP separately from the main characters and everyone cared more about Storybrooke and what was happening there than what was happening with MAP. MAP hung around for half a season before completely disappearing for the rest of the season save one scene in the finale. MAP could have been taken out and replaced with other characters for the present day FTL sections that would have served the purpose of getting Snow and Emma back to Storybrooke.
Also Henry was a bit of a brat this season. There were episodes where I genuinely didn’t like him. Nobody likes an irritating kid character.
