Once Upon A Time, S4E16: “Poor Unfortunate Soul”

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • August is back! Along with his dubious moral fibre.
  • Ghostbusting merman!
  • Oh Belle. I feel like you should be sharper than this.
  • Plus, that whole pirate oath you swore last time to not tell anyone really didn’t take, did it?
  • Ha–I like how Emma’s “can you do that?” to Hook calls back to Ariel’s “can you do that?” To Ursula in the movie.
  • Why would Hook believe anything Ursula says, if he wronged her that bad?
  • Oh they used Fathoms Below–that’s nice.
  • So close to a nice gesture, Hook. So close.
  • Wait. Are you telling me there might be an actual reason for Will Scarlett to be hanging around? Besides an awesome agent?
  • Do not even tell me, Regina, that you’re going to take this Robin at face value.
  • Oops. Dream.
  • Poor CGI August.
  • Nice. How are you gonna get out to the ship? It’s nowhere near shore, and there’s obviously a stiff breeze blowing.
  • Well THAT could have gone better.
  • Ariel has always been a little off to me in Storybrooke. A little too harsh.
  • Why couldn’t Poseidon just paralyze Hook like before, and take the shell from him?
  • Why again, are we glad to see August, when all he ever did was abandon us, steal our stuff, and have us put in jail?
  • Also, do we honestly think Geppetto is going to be happy that his cute kid is gone, and this lying, disreputable guy is back?
  • “I’m good at surviving. Or you’re bad at killing.”
  • It’s lines like that that keep Hook an appealing character, despite his propensity to flip flop.
  • Aww. Who you gonna call? Poseidon!
  • Ok, I think Emma’s being a little disingenuous here.
  • Well, I guess we should have figured Ursula wasn’t as evil as all that, when she let Gold live with her and eat her ramen.
  • Wait, but if the villains can’t get their happy endings without Emma going dark side, how did Ursula get hers?

Once Upon A Time, S4E13: “Darkness on the Edge of Town”

Spoiler Thoughts:

  • Cruella…has magical dog breath powers?
  • Weird, however I guess without that, her superpower is basically chain-smoking.
  • Oh hey, Regina’s reinstalled as mayor. Because Storybrooke votes the recidivist party.
  • Honestly, I know she’s good and all now, but she did spend a considerable amount of time killing and torturing people.
  • If it were me, I think I’d be up for inviting her to Granny’s, but I’d draw the line at using my tax dollars to pay for her mansion.
  • I see we still haven’t decided on how much assimilation Hook’s done to the Modern World.
  • Actually, why should Belle be so much better at the Internet than he is? Didn’t she spend the last 28 years locked up in the hospital basement?
  • Or did she assume all the memories of when she was “Lacey?” I was never sure how much that curse took.
  • Say, this is a happy library.
  • Belle has maybe not learned her lesson yet.
  • Shouldn’t the license plate be “DE VIL?”
  • Is this a flashback? Why did he seem like he never thought of any of this before, until Regina brought it up?
  • I guess the concept of personal responsibility wouldn’t be that attractive to villains.
  • I feel like we maybe didn’t check the credentials of that Oxford professor all that carefully.
  • I would probably make sure I got the dagger back from Regina at some point.
  • If I were one of these three, I’d wonder why Rumple wasn’t dealing with these challenges on his own, since none of them seem like they’d be too tough for him.
  • See, now that’s why I’d be wondering.
  • All evil people must also come equipped with powers of retrograde amnesia, or no one would ever deal with them again.
  • Gosh, that is some dicey CGI right there.
  • Also, don’t all hearts have the same potential for darkness? Isn’t that what we learned from when Snow kind of killed Cora?
  • Shoutout to the guy who totally ran across the street behind Regina and Emma, functionally photobombing them.
  • Like how the Dark One has fallen so far, he has a FLIP PHONE.
  • Shouldn’t Ursula and Cruella be like 30 years older by now?
  • Letting two arch-evils into town seems like kind of a unilateral decision for Emma and Regina to make on their own.
  • Ok, never mind the Author and the Sorcerer, Storybrooke needs an Archivist to make sure all these magical artifacts get recollected after each use.
  • Carlyle does such a nice job differentiating between all the different Rumple/Gold incarnations.
  • Apparently Snow hasn’t lost that dark spot on her heart yet.
