1) the opening sequence, where we saw once again Bae, Rumple and the portal, and see Bae arriving in London. I was really glad that Bae did not go straight to Neverland, but did go to a land without magic. For one thing, I never thought Bae fitted the character of Peter Pan; for another, while I can accept misdirection from the producers, it would have been an all-out lie to say the bean would take him to a land without magic if it took him to Neverland.
If you wanna talk lies they’ve told us, they had us believe that this world wasn’t the first one Bae went to. “It’s a long story. Short version, is this world wasn’t my first stop when I left home.” This has been bugging me since the spoilers of him landing in London started coming out. Unless it does turn out that that was a FictionalLondon inhabited by characters from literature, as opposed to RealWorldLondon, Nealfire lied to Emma, and K&H lied to us through him. *shakes fist*[adrotate group="5"]May 9, 2013 at 1:52 am #192380maryrose d.Participant
^^^^Was I the only one that was hoping Emma would take a page out of her dad’s playbook and just snap Tamara’s neck during that fight?
I didn’t think of the neck snapping, more like a “hey” and then shoot her

Hello, all. I’ve been reading your posts for a long time and finally had something cute to chip in. We’re all big Disney fans in my house and watch the Disney Channel with the kids. When my 6 year old climbed into my lap while I was watching this episode, she say the scene where Bae ends up on Hook’s ship. She turned to me and said, “So is he now Jake?” (from the Disney Jr show “Jake and the Pirates” which has a young boy in Neverland who’s a pirate and always foils Captain Hook’s plans). After all the “is he/isn’t he” discussions on here about Bae being Peter Pan, I just cracked up and had to share
Oh, favorite scene was the portal scene…heartbreaking and real.
Least favorite scene: The shadow trying to take the little boy….scenes with small children in danger always give me the willies….shudder.May 11, 2013 at 2:03 am #193059nonnieParticipant
Post even when you do not have anything “cute” to say… all theories , comments and ideas are welcome!

Favorite Moments Emma and Neal as he falls through the portal. What a great emotional scene. I also liked the scene of David comforting Emma afterward. We haven’t seen many chances for Emma to bond with her dad.
I can’t really think of a least favorite moment.May 12, 2013 at 1:29 am #193268seven_of_8Participant
Thanks Nonnie. I’ll post when I can.May 13, 2013 at 10:50 am #193689swanning-offParticipant
Plot Device Blue Fairy is Plot Device-y.
While I am still open to Sneak Fairy is Sneaky, with each episode that the BF appears in I become more and more convinced that there is no working logic to her, it just depends on what the writers need her to do or not to do.
Yeah, I’ve reached that conclusion too. There’s just no consistency to support Sneaky Fairy is Sneaky theories anymore. Her powerful fairy magic is way too inconsistent – can cover a bean field, can resurrect the almost dead Regina, can’t make a dent in Gold’s shop spell. Plot Device Fairy is a Plot Device 🙁 Missed opportunity for the writers but meh, it’s a small quibble given how awesome the rest of the show is.
Least favourite moments: Owen/Greg going all madman scientist torturer. I have no sympathy for him, dead father or not. You can demand answers without joining a cult-like organisation that aims to torture and kill magical beings.
Tied – Swanfire ripped apart after the epic ILYs 🙁 then backed up by Papa Charming being all fatherly and comforting. Brilliant!May 15, 2013 at 4:35 am #194503elleParticipant
I liked this episode, but for different reasons.
1). The Regina torture scene–to be honest, I didn’t really care all that much. I’m not saying she deserved that or anything, but I didn’t feel all that sorry for her, either. And I may not like Greg anymore than Regina, but I still kinda felt for him–he had befriended and trusted Regina when he was younger, and it was repaid with her not only trying to kidnap him, but then lying and saying that Kurt never went back for him, and then later on admitted that she killed him and buried him. I hate that him for being willing to kill innocent people–that does not make him any better for Regina–but at the same time, I felt for him a bit when he learned what Regina did to his father.
2). Rumpelstiltskin and Lacey–I don’t like either of these two in this episode. I’ve been mixed on the whole with Lacey. I’ve thought from the beginning that she was a plot-device (and from what happened in the finale, it was proven) and haven’t really been all that interested in her. But Rumpelstiltskin was even worse–I hated how he was just going along with Lacey because he wanted to be with her, and then he later on treats Bae horribly. Anyway, they weren’t really interesting in this episode, or sympathetic.
3). Emma and Neal scenes–I’m a bit mixed with it to be honest. I had been pretty big on Neal and Emma for a while before, but now…I don’t know, I fell out of it. Mostly because I think Neal treats her badly. He didn’t bother to tell Henry off from giving Emma the cold-shoulder and then treating her in a nasty manner, he seemed to laugh it off on how Emma was handling her pain in Manhattan (I can understand this sort of defense mechanism, but still), and he seemed to enjoy seeing Emma uncomfortable about him being engaged. So with their scenes together, I wasn’t as convinced that it was touching as some people might be. The scenes where they confess their love was touching, but I just didn’t get any romantic vibes from them.
4). I loved seeing the Bae’s story, though. The CGI wasn’t as bad as it normally is. It was acceptable enough that I could watch it and not mind it so much. And it was touching to see how close Bae got with the Darling Family and how he came to care for them, going so far as to sacrifice his life for them.
5). And then the shadow!! 😯 That was an awesome surprise. I had been expecting some sort of Disney-like version of Peter Pan and the shadow, not some creepy shadow that kidnaps boys and keeps them prisoner. That was one of the best surprises this show had given.
Overall, it was a good episode. Not a favorite, but one that I enjoyed, and one that I will be watching a lot of.May 15, 2013 at 4:47 am #194506HappyEndingsSpectator
I totally agree with all Elle said above ^ but would like to add I like that Emma called Snow and David, mom and dad and I hope it continues but I doubt it 🙂
