What did you think of tonight’s OnceWonderland: “Heart of Stone?” What were your favorite and least favorite moments?[adrotate group="5"]"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"November 14, 2013 at 9:11 pm #223920
I thought this was an OK episode. Last week was stronger for me.
I did like:
–The bunny. He’s a hero in a hat
–Yay Cyrus getting free!
–The RQ. Her backstory was predictable
–Zombie Alice?! (what was that)
–Not enough Knave"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"November 14, 2013 at 9:23 pm #223929Kelli AdkinsParticipant
Favorite moments were:
1) Anastasia saving Will with the dust
2) The cave scene between Alice and young Alice
3) The scene between Ana’s mother and Ana/Will. (Reminded me of Cora and Regina/Daniel)
Least favorite moment:
Jafar cutting off the rabbit’s foot
Anastasia taking the king’s offer instead of being with Will
I know people compare Regina and Ana together:
But the main difference between them is:
1) Regina didn’t want to be queen and marry Leopold
2) Ana took the king’s offer instead of being with Will

Zombie Alice?! (what was that)
It was creepy as all getout is what it was!
Jafar cutting off the rabbit’s foot
When he held that foot up…just, NO. I do not like Jafar.
Also do not like Anastasia. She can have an unhappy ending, please and thank you.November 15, 2013 at 6:59 am #224001RedParticipant
The flashbacks were the strongest part of the episode for me. I like Anastasia but not as the Red Queen. I think her fake accent was part of the problem, so I liked the scene of her mimicking the guests accents at the ball.
Also her saying sorry to statue Will with the tear in her eye and setting him free.
Also glad Cyrus has broke free but he’s leaving as she is going to arrive 🙁
I missed the knave though! He is the best thing about this series, so I’m happy he isn’t trapped in stone for more episodes.November 15, 2013 at 7:19 am #224004kfchimeraParticipant
I disliked the Wil/Cora/Mom scene and the King/Cora as it DID all remind me of Cora and Regina & Daniel, then the White King’s outfit looked like he borrowed it from Xavier. This was all kinds of creepy to me for some reason, so if they do NOT bring Cora into it and explain the similarity was purposeful within this story, I will forever think WL is a remix of their own show the same way they remix fairytales.
Speaking of remix, Sayid torturing the, oh excuse me. Jafar tutoring the bunny on the vast incentives he can provide to help him if he helps Jafar was a let down. The bunny squirmed but I could not help but think if Wil says Bloody Rabbit, I will recall this scene and say–actually he is more like bloodless. I guess Jafar did a spell so he didn’t have to worry about his clothes.
Speaking of the clothes again, I loved the Red Queen’s costumes and seeing the traditional little Disney Alice ones, but Ana’s ball dress was oddly modern, but reminded me of a black dress that Regina wore (the one where she met Hook).
Zombie Alice was not half as creepy as Sci-fi Wharehouse 13 Alice but it reminded me of her and that makes me get goosebumps. She creeped me out. I don’t like when sci-fi crosses right past dark fantasy into horror. We had a lighthearted feel on this show overall though.
I agree about the RQ’s accent scene–at least they explain it.

I agree. That was my biggest issue with this episode, I think. It was a total mashup of Stable Boy and Miller’s Daughter. The Red Queen’s backstory ended up being something they’ve already shown us, and frankly this was a less well executed version of it."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"November 15, 2013 at 10:21 am #224077SlurpeezParticipant
My favorite scenes are probably the scenes of Alice using the dust to find Cyrus and Cyrus getting free. I didn’t care for much of the Red Queen’s story at all. Even before she betrayed Will, she was aloof and unsympathetic.

I really liked this episode, in fact I don’t think there’s anything notable I didn’t like about it.
The Knave-He’s adorable as always.
Red Queen- I like Red Queen. She’s grown on me. I liked that she used the magic dust on Will rather than protecting herself as she told Alice. I think RQ offers a glimpse of what Regina’s life would’ve been like had she run off with Daniel. RQ and REgina are similar yet so different. I hope Red Queen gets her happy ending.
Jafar- He’s so ruthless
Little Alice- Evil little Alice was creepy yet represented the dark side of Alice so well.
Cyrus getting free- Anybody else notice the red dot flash up to mark Alice’s location after Cyrus says he’s coming for her.
