Alright, I held on posting this for a couple of reasons. One, to make sure that people had a couple of days to watch the first episode of Season 3 of Once Upon a Time, but also because I just honestly haven't had time to post much of anything for the past couple of weeks and am now just making it all back up!
Either way, as I'm sure you all know, Once Upon a Time has BEGUN! Again! That's right, for the next 10 weeks we have straight episodes of OUAT, and then a 12 week break that will probably kill me, and then another 11 episodes in the spring.
So let's talk a bit about this first episode. I know that before it premiered to everyone and it was just seen by the press, many commented that it reminded them why they love OUAT, and I totally agree. Everything was absolutely amazing. The opening scene, for instance, was perfect. Henry's birth was a great way to start out the season, especially when I really wasn't sure where or how it was going to start. That's also our only flashback in the entire episode, which is kind of new since we normally have like half flashback have current day.
So let's move on to Neverland in the current day. Things seem to be getting pretty tense all up on the Jolly Rodger. Emma doesn't exactly trust her parents, and calls them out on it as well. I know it's supposed to be serious as well, but I can't help but laugh every time she's like "But we're the same age" and it's like haha yeah you are!
Oh, and then Hook's constant awesome lines, like "Oh that's a good use of our time. A wardrobe change." Haha cracks me up every single time! Despite the fact that Rumple is the first to go AWOL, but you know, Hook is right. That's obviously the best use of their time...NOT. I mean, he totally even ruffled up his hair. What is up with that? But that wasn't Hook's only spectacular line. There was also the one near the end, "Actually I quite fancy you from time to time, when you're not yelling at me."
I think, actually, overall, this was the funniest episode to date in the way of one liners. Like half the cast says something at some point that's just absolutely hilarious. Like when Henry is like "we making smores?" or that comment from Regina about "Rainbow kisses and unicorn stickers." All great lines that had everyone in my OUAT party laughing.
But there was one portion of the episode that I didn't really like. I guess I just can't figure out why they got rid of Greg and Tamara so quickly. Like I want them dead as much as the next person, and I was actually like "YES!" when Tamara got shot with that arrow, but it just felt too quick for them to die. But we wonder if maybe Greg is still alive. We're still not sure how the whole shadow thing works, so yeah.
And the ending. That has to be the best ending since Graham back in season one. Just the creepiness of the line from Pan of "Let's Play," and then it cuts was like "NOOOOO HENRY!" As usual I can't wait until next Sunday to see the new episode, and with a little luck we'll get more CaptainSwan moments! I suppose I should touch on the fact that Neal is around and that's cool and all and he is Henry's dad, but I still love CaptainSwan way more. Hook and Emma...they just obviously belong together. And don't even get me started on how ridiculous HookedQueen is. Sorry to all you other shippers, but I will forever ship CaptainSwan! Neal does have some great one-liners though.
Either way, let's see. What's going to happen next week? I honestly have no clue what's all going to go on. I know we don't see Storybrooke in the next episode either, so that should be interesting. Henry...well something will happen to Henry in between these episodes. Emma is gonna become a Lost Girl, which we already know because that's the title of this next episode. Meanwhile Hook is totally doing exactly what the writer's hinted at...setting his sights on Emma, and I think it's amazing to see how he's changed as a character from his first episode until now. Rumple has something going on, and Neal is gonna try to get back to Emma...hopefully by then a pirate will be in the way. Regina is probably going to do something, well, Regina-like. She's awesome, but I just have this feeling that she might go AWOL like Rumple did at some point.
Also, although this really just adds pictures to this, one of my friends suggested after tonight that I Disneybound as a Once character for every episode, since tonight I pulled an Emma Disneybound! I do already have my character for next week but you'll just have to wait and see who it is!
Today on Frumpstagram it's "Best," and honestly one of the best things I've experienced at Walt Disney World was this: getting to be the last people in the Magic Kingdom and basically watch the Kiss Goodnight all by ourselves on Main Street.
Here's today's Disney History: 1980: Zachary Levi, the voice of Flynn Rider in Disney's 2010 animated Tangled, is born in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
Have a magical day!
