A very warm welcome to you!
A very warm welcome to you, Sarah.
Favorite Moment: Regina absorbing the magic from the portal to protect Snow/Emma from dying. It showed real character development on her from previous episodes, and made me love her even more.
Least Favorite: Nobody. Invited. Regina. Or even thought about it: They just all go skipping down Main Street being so happy while leaving her behind.
I agree completely. It would have been really nice if someone had remembered to invite both Mr. Gold and Regina to join them for that meal at Granny’s. I know there are still trust issues to work out, and that Regina did many things that are difficult to get past and forgive, but it would have been great to see them forming a united front in the face of Cora’s and Hook’s arrival in Storybrooke.
I have a theory about Hook and Mr Gold/Rumple….
It could be true that Hook wants to avenge Milah’s death, then I remembered Mr Gold/Rumple’s joy of hoarding all manner of strange things in his shop. Could one of those things turn out to be Hook’s hand that he sliced off?
I think it’s very possible that Mr Gold/Rumple will strike some sort of bargain with Hook, in exchange for using magic to re-attach the hand. How could Hook resist such a tempting bargain? To be a whole man again after so many years? After all, the hand could very well have been preserved all this time, and Mr Gold DID re-attach Dr Whales arm recently, didn’t he? Hook doesn’t have to lose his nickname if he were to suddenly find himself with both hands.
It’s just a theory…
I happened to enter the word/name “neal” in TheFreeDictionary. One of the meanings of the name is “To be tempered by heat.” This gives credence to the belief that Neal could indeed be Baelfire.
