Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb? Here is what I was saying while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.
Musical episode! I do love a good musical.
I feel like the song Emma’s humming was a variant of “When You Wish Upon A Star,” but maybe it’s some contemporary song of which I know naught.
This is a remarkably philosophical youth group home.
Snow is all DON’T YOU WANT TO WEAR MY WEDDING DRESS and Emma is all “…k?”
I guess when Emma said they were going to wait to get married until the Black Fairy was taken care of, I thought that they were going to take a normal amount of time, like months-to-a-year, instead of the next day.
Dallas, getting a last shot at dress prince attire.
Actually, I’m not sure why he’s all dressed up, and Snow looks like she’s in a nightgown. I guess you’d have to go back and watch the episode where they go talk to Rumple to see if it’s all in continuity.
Wow, Dallas has some pipes.
“Zootopia 2: Frantic Pig Sings!”
Man, I love “Powerful Magic.” I think Disney and musicals match so well with benign self-aware corn.
Hm. I think that might have been a crappy dry cleaner.
Now, is there some reason why everyone can’t just pile in one of Regina’s station wagons and hightail it to New York where the curse wouldn’t work?
Hey they brought the mirror back! And all the dwarfs and Geppetto! Looking a little like a wrap-up when all the once-regulars start showing up.
Parilla is so game.
Emma, still not that good with the truthful part of her relationships.
Smee! That’s a pretty deep cut.
Let’s us be real here. I’m not sure there’s any particularly good reason for Snow and Charming to search out Hook, but it’s not like they’re going to have a big episode like this and not give O’Donoghue a number.
I feel like Hook should have his evil guyliner on for this.
I think O’Donoghue said he broke his foot standing on the chair in the beginning of this, which is pretty ouch.
I wonder if they were going to have him do more dancing, but after he broke his foot, just went for the lazy susan.
A fun number, but “Revenge” so far sounds a little more looped in afterwards than the others.
Hook never gets a break.
Henry doesn’t really get much of a part anymore.
Emma kept dragging that tape recorder around her entire life, and never once played that tape from childhood.
Love Robert Carlyle. “You think the Dark One sings? I’d rather gouge my eyes out with a rusty fork.”
Never was a huge fan of Zelina, but you have to admit that Bex Mader always gives it all she’s got.
Is there some reason Regina hasn’t placed protection spells over all their houses by now?
How did Emma know the Black Fairy was at Regina’s?
I guess it was nice that the Black Fairy just froze Hook instead of killing him.
Meanwhile, Henry is just kicking it at the office by himself. “Yeah mom, tell me about how alone you are.”
There is nothing greater than the Evil Queen’s face when Snow and Charming start singing at her.
Lol. The three of them look like they are trying desperately not to crack up.
Charming, who has the chance to kill Regina for the ninetieth time, but still just stands there and lets her do whatever to get out of it.
Nooo, not the voice-sucking machine!
If you didn’t need the big Zelina number, it would have made more sense that she got it from Ursula, but musical license.
I guess the Evil Queen didn’t want to just kill them while they were right there and defenseless.
I would put a protection spell on my heart, actually.
Ok, fun fact: In real life, it’s not that good to drop someone’s heart on the floor.
I guess this is supposed to mirror the episode where Cora tried to rip out Emma’s heart yelling “LOVE IS WEAKNESS” and couldn’t do it because Emma countered “LOVE IS STRENGTH.”
The Black Fairy is all “I’m getting beat and I have to stand here and get sang at.”
I think it might have been more consistent if Emma had punctuated her first musical revelation with a right cross to the Black Fairy, but maybe they didn’t want to interrupt the song.
Zelina and Regina are all “I’ll just stand over here, then.”
Doctor Hopper is the most underpaid guy in town, for all the work he does.
I guess Emma didn’t want to wear Snow’s Black Swan wedding dress.
Surely they will be Happy Forever After, getting married by Carth/Kaiden.
Whenever Hook picks her up, and they shoot from the back, I assume it’s a stand-in who doesn’t have a broken foot.
So here’s a thought: Maybe, instead of getting married, they could have made another batch of the time-freezing potion and dropped it off on the watchtower?
HOLY CRAP, I just realized the song Emma’s singing/humming all the time is the Once Upon A Time theme song!
Are you watching this show? Do you wish someone would watch along with you because everyone else you know thinks it’s dumb? Here is what I would have said while I was watching it–I WILL WATCH WITH YOU.
Mulan is the most mirthless character.
Dorothy is pretty grim as well. This is like a medley of unpleasant characters plus Ruby.
I don’t entirely get Zelina’s train of logic all the time. She doesn’t seem to want to be Team Hades, but then she’s not looking to be part of Team Swan, either, and those are kind of the only games in town.
Well actually, Belle, you were protecting Rumple. The baby wasn’t really in the picture.
It’s nice they overtly acknowledge Charming isn’t the alpha hero in this family.
Why are they all sitting there letting Cruella rip out the phone? Like they have to observe her mayoral powers?
I don’t think the Underworld is where I’d start obeying municipal authority. Just bean Claude with a rock–it’s not like you’re gonna kill him.
Zelina really isn’t that thrilled at the prospect of becoming as earnestly dull as Regina.
Whenever Regina shows up to chat with Zelina, she’s stuck being the Snow/Emma, and Zelina gets to be the Regina.
I thought Ruby found her pack and had to kill her Mom to stop her from killing Snow?
I guess we’re not getting the big David/James throw-down.
Ugh. The Belle-Zelena mutual pity party is pretty sad.
Maybe y’all are in your respectively pitiful states because of bad decision-making, and not some malign fate.
Charming and Hook are always a good pairing.
How is Ruby not going to smell the poppy when it’s stuck in her waistband?
When you control your powers, you can transform with your clothes.
Are you KIDDING me? There’s another place to eat in town and no one ever went there?
And it serves chicken and waffles?!
The idea that everyone still hangs out at Granny’s when they could be having chicken and waffles is maybe the most unbelievable thing ever in OUAT.
Taking away the chicken and waffles cements Hades as total evil.
If past results are positive predictors, Mulan is possibly the worst person to give relationship advice.
Wait. If Hook can change the names, why doesn’t he change them to Gold and Zelena and Belle, and the rest of them can take a powder?
Or even some Joe Blow who is already stuck there?
I feel we’re not taking full advantage of this power.
For that matter, why can’t they use the slippers to go back and forth every day? Do they get used up?
Maybe this is when the PR tour for Zootopia started.
Didn’t Hades just say it wasn’t about Zelena?
There are some good hairdressers in Oz.
It’s very romantic, until you remember Aunt Em became liquefied for this reunion.
Like Rumple could stop Hades doing boo in the Underworld.
Poor Belle. Her only hope of true love is the Dad who tried to marry her off for political reasons, and then kidnapped her and tried to give her amnesia.
You know, Rebecca Mader gives it all she’s got, but Zelinda continues to not be my favorite character.
This crazy/evil thing she’s got going is entertaining but starts to get one-note when she can’t seem to move past her abandonment issues.
But that’s the same as all the villains, I think–Regina kind of stalled out for me when she kept flip-flopping back into evil because of Daniel, and Gold’s in danger of the same. It’s fun to see unabashed evil, but if it doesn’t go anywhere…it doesn’t go anywhere.
Wow Dorothy. That was quite possibly the worst plan in the history of plans.
It’s a good thing Zelina suddenly forgot how to be effective.
Gold can make portals? Wasn’t there roughly a jillion times where we really needed a portal and couldn’t get one?
Oh, and Zelina’s back in Storybrooke. Good thing she suddenly remembers to be competent when the plot requires it.
Too bad we didn’t leave anyone with any power back in Storybrooke to protect against her.
Blue is all “well that’s that. Peace and quiet at last.”
That’ll teach Zelina not to wear rubber soles.
“No one loves you.” Ouch Hades.
Hansel and Gretel’s witch is surprisingly helpful. She ought to have moved on by now.
You tell them Henry. Like any of them are doing anything.
“The Catch” is pretty repulsive looking.
Everyone in Storybrooke celebrates their birthdays with a sad cupcake.
Aw. Hades and Zelina bonded over their mutual vortices of perceived self-victimization.
Oh wow, Rumple. Now might not be the time to go the full disclosure route.
Yeah, this isn’t going well.
Harsh truth times with Belle tonight.
Belle, if you stay with him after all this, you are dumber than a sack of bricks.
Regina, Evangelist for Good.
This weird Shatner-esque delivery Hades keeps using is pretty distracting.
Didn’t the bicycle actually belong to Elmira Gulch?
Robin the Credulous Hood.
Wow, who could ever have predicted Zelina’s shocking betrayal.
Serious? Those dudes couldn’t catch up to a limping woman in heels and a top hat?
It’s hard to think what Dorothy ever thought she could do against Zelina in the first place.
Not being afraid of a homicidal lunatic when she’s got you paralyzed just shows a bad analysis of your situation, IMO.
If all you needed was a baby for the spell, this doesn’t seem like the easiest one Hades could have gotten.
Everyone is as revolted by Zelina’s maudlin self-sacrifice as they were by her psychosis.
Hades hasn’t really gotten out much.
Oh wow. I can’t believe that they actually made me feel bad for Hades, putting the moves on Zelina.
Oh Hades. If only there were someone who really loved you.
This is the creepiest love scene ever, and it’s still more appealing than “The Catch.”
