Rapunzel was locked in a tower and kept their by her own fear after taking the root. (okay)
What did you think of this newest princess?
She felt really out of place for me and altogether random, but I guess the twist was ok
Do you think she is in SB now? And will we see her again?[adrotate group="5"]"He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"March 23, 2014 at 9:29 pm #254993SlurpeezParticipant
I liked what little we saw of Rapunzel, but I doubt we’ll see her again. She was thrown in there in a random way, much like Lancelot was in S2. We didn’t see him again. Who knows? Maybe someday in S4 but probably not the rest of S3.

I feel like we didn’t need Rapunzel. Like there could have been a better way to introduce this concept of fear and the Hooded figure without having her locked in a tower.
Liked the dress though."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"March 23, 2014 at 9:40 pm #255001once_dudeParticipant
i liked Rapunzel. lol when we watched it my mom was saying “He can’t save her. He is only Snow White’s prince, and not the generic Prince Charming.” I liked the way they introduced nightroot, but what if instead we saw Robin or the Friar Tuck try it, now that would be interesting.

Well I’d called it that the hooded figure would be a manifestation of Rapunzel’s own fears keeping her prisoner in the tower, so I rather enjoyed her storyline because it meant I’d guessed something right. LOL
It was a pretty minor role for someone who is a pretty major Princess, though. I’m not really expecting to see her again, but if they had a way to work her back into the story again in future, I’d be happy to see some more of her.March 26, 2014 at 8:06 pm #255899obisgirlParticipant
I liked Rapunzel. I am curious more than anything who was her brother?
She mentioned him twice, he died saving her but we never got his name. I feel like her brother was probably someone important. And I’d laugh out loud so hard if his name was Flynn. Leave it to Adam and Eddie to make that kind of twist.March 26, 2014 at 8:52 pm #255932

I keep thinking it might be Lancelot. We don’t know how he died, and maybe Cora had a hand in what Rapunzel thinks happened. And it’d be nice if Charming saved the sister of the man who married him and Snow."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"March 26, 2014 at 9:01 pm #255937obisgirlParticipant
My boyfriend thought about Lancelot. But I got the feeling between the both of them (Rapunzel and her brother) he was the older one and I feel like, Lancelot was much older, like closer to Charming’s age or something. I imagine, if her brother was someone important, he was probably 2-3 years older than her. But that’s just my head canon.March 27, 2014 at 4:23 pm #256165kfchimeraParticipant
An older brother could have worked, like 10 years as maybe the magic tower kept her young as well as fed. If they wanted they easily could have referenced Lancelot but they did not. There was also the shot of Henry playing his video game with a knight, that I dub Lancelot, even though they did not tell us Henry had a name for his avatar.

I was half expecting a Lancelot shoutout, but I guess if Rapunzel had said his name, Charming would have been all, “Dude I know him, he married me and my wife!” and she’d be all, “What? He drowned when he was 16,” and Charming would be all, “Nope, he was pushing 30 when I met him,” then they’d have to take the time to explore that storyline a bit more, which they didn’t exactly have time for.
I’ll hold onto some faint hope in the back of my mind that maybe one day they’ll make some more Arthurian legend a central stroyline, and they’ll have a Lancelot is Rapunzel’s long lost brother, and surprise, Cora didn’t really kill him after all reveal. It’s just crack theory at this point, but it could also be the reason they chose to cast Rapunzel’s family as African American in the first place, so they could keep the Lancelot story in their back pocket for future use if necessary.
