I thought it might be nice to have a ongoing topic so I am planning to post this topic in all of the future episodes. We can post our answers after we see the episode…..
…. I HOPE YOU WILL PLAY ALONG……

ACTING was good … but…
I did not like the story … or the darkness … I am glad that Regina did not take Snows heart .. Hopefully SNOW gets her head back on straight.
I like we finally found the GREG / OWEN have a legitimate story for here in SB… I just might grow to like him.

–Rumple saved Snow. I knew he would. I knew something else had to happen other than that Sneak Peak 5 that was giving me heart ache all weekend. I knew I could have faith in my Rumple.
–Lana was AMAZING this episode. She killed it. And that moment with Ginny at the end was stellar.
–Greg = Owen! So glad I got that 🙂
–Henry as the voice of reason.
–Any sympathy for Regina I had after Miller’s Daughter probably just went away."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"March 18, 2013 at 1:32 am #180558elleParticipant
I seriously love this episode for all the acting–Ginnifer Goodwin and Lana Parrilla completely stole this episode from start to finish. I seriously hope for more scenes with them together. Even Jared Gilmore was pretty good, and the kid that played a younger version of Owen/Greg.
But there were a few things that bothered me about this episode. The writers themselves said that this episode would prove that Regina did not abuse Graham–that didn’t happen. If anything, it only shows more of what she did to Graham, using his heart and and the curse to make him act the way she wanted him to.
I honestly didn’t like how Rumpelstiltskin was in this episode much–The whole Charming Family saved him before from both Regina and Cora, and he is not the least bit grateful for it. And seems to not care at all about them, even though Emma basically has called him family several times.
Also, if this episode was to try and inspire sympathy for Regina, I don’t think it worked really well. Not only her whole treatment of Graham, but how she seperated Graham/Owen from his own father. Even when she was crying while watching Owen–she could have let the father go and let father and son be together, instead she keeps them apart just because she doesn’t get what she wants.
And again, her whole attempt to control Henry an make him love her goes right back to her actions in season 1–she doesn’t seem to learn at all.
As well as the fact that she whined about her victory, complaining about how everyone had to do what she said and that they had no choice. That was basically what she had wanted the whole time.
I actually really loved the flashback sequence–they were really great. The way they looked and the actors were wonderful.
I think my favorite scene has to be the one where Snow White goes to Regina to die–she is tired of fighting, tired of her life and family being in danger, tortured by the guilt that she feels for what she did, and wanting to end the feud between her and Regina so that her family is spared. I felt so much for her.
I really like the story for Greg/Owen. It is a heartbreaking one, and it does explain why he wants to stay in Storybrooke and take a ton of pictures of the town. I honestly hope he and Regina have some sort of confrontation.March 18, 2013 at 1:37 am #180564kpercymanParticipant
-Regina taking out Snow’s heart.
-Gold acting like he didn’t know who Regina was when the curse was created. (I could be wrong but I thought he knew everyone from the beginning and was acting. I believe it was revealed last season in one of the earlier episodes)
-Henry running to Emma and not Regina (This is my biggest complaint concerning the entire series)March 18, 2013 at 1:39 am #180565RumplesGirlKeymaster
Rumple knew only when Emma came into town and he heard her name. Until then, he was Mr. Gold. We’ve never seen Gold until tonight. We’ve always known Rumple."He was a lot of things to me" "The only conclusion was love"March 18, 2013 at 1:39 am #180566rapunzel_is_a_gingerParticipant
Wow… I’m so impressed with this episode. I agree with everyone, Lana and Ginny were awesome! If there were just some way to remind Regina how miserable she was after casting the curse, maybe she’d give up on this and see that she’s only going in circles. In certain ways, Regina is still living the curse, repeating the actions that bring her pain.
My favorite other moment was Neal and Emma in the diner.
Neal: “Not bad for my third day being a father.”
Emma: “You FELL for that?! He’s YOUR son.”
Much needed comic relief. Neal is shaping up to be the new Charming…. 😆
Second favorite moment: Snow asking Rumple how he lives with himself and him replying that he tells himself he’s doing the right thing. Rumple DOES have a conscience, but he puts that aside for an “ends justify the means” existence.
I don’t really have any least favorite moments, but definitely things that still need to be answered: 1. at what point do Emma and Neal have the discussion about Henry being adopted and 2. what happened to Owen’s dad?March 18, 2013 at 1:47 am #180572kpercymanParticipant
Rumple knew only when Emma came into town and he heard her name. Until then, he was Mr. Gold. We’ve never seen Gold until tonight. We’ve always known Rumple.
Thanks for the clarification!March 18, 2013 at 2:13 am #180579Killian JonesParticipant
It was cool to finally meet Mr. Gold and see how crazy Regina must have been going without Henry, also how Graham was so controlled by Regina. Then when Rumple saves Mary Margaret wow that was so great Regina didn’t even try to ride that train. Also seeing what is motivating Greg into coming to Storybrooke and how he had his dad taken from him. Also how bout Regina stopping Henry and giving up the curse. I knew that letting Snow live with what she did would be a more satisfying punishment for Regina it’s gonna be interesting to see how that darkness spreads with Snow. My favorite moment of all though had to be in the diner when Emma brings Henry to talk to Bae then Henry ditches him?! “You bought that?! He’s YOUR son! lolMarch 18, 2013 at 2:20 am #180584cheshireinwonderlandParticipant
My favorite episode this season. I’ve always wondered what a car chase would look like in Stroybrooke. 🙂
