"Once Upon A Time" Once Again, Take Three

The new season starts tonight... will it recover after the world's suckiest season finale last year?

Will "Neverland" save this show? Will the spin-off survive?

Will Henry be found and saved? Will Mr. Gold forever be evil?

Does anyone in here still watch or care?

Well, that episode sucked ass.

The women are nothing on the show anymore except, it seems, utter fucking morons. Emma will solve everything by jumping overboard! Excellent.

Regina can't poof her out of the water because she can't see her and would end up with only a leg or something. Well, she could see her after they surfaced, right? So, why exactly did they haul Emma and Charming out of the water with a rope?

And, uh, wasn't Regina all self-sacrificing and repentent about five minutes ago when she was going to sacrifice herself in the season finale? Where did that Regina go?

I'm already sick of the lost boys and Peter Pan's ears are distracting. It seems to have turned into the Charming/Neal/Henry show. If you would have asked who the three least liked and most annoyingly bad actors on the show are, they'd win.

This show has turned into the creators' Peter Pan syndrome, writ large.

They wisely killed off two of the more annoying characters from last year right away, so that was a good sign.

Mulan annoyed me last year, but for some reason I liked her in this episode.

I think their is some potential with their storyline, but they have one problem. The actor playing Henry has gone from cute kid to adolescent who cannot act. It does not help that he gets some really cringe-worthy dialogue and can be annoyingly self-righteous and judgmental.

The two they killed off were annoying, but why bring them on the show to kill them off so fast. I don't know if Greg is really dead as his shadow was he needs a redemption after what Regina did to his dad. I did want to see whatsherface Taze Rumpel..he annoys the crap out of me.

Pretty good epsiode..I think I will tire of Neverland. I just wish they had left everyone in Storybrooke with no magic. Would loved to have seen Regina and Maleficent in modern day clothes trying to screw over the annoying Snow and Charming.

Emma and Hook have chemistry as does she and Regina. Poor Snow and Charming are just so freakin dull. The Henry kid needs to be recast.

Was that supposed to be Ariel EQ turned to wood? Please let them bring out Ursula if that is the case.

I was dissapointed with Rumple pulling the heart thing, that was really Regina's thing. He had more flair in killing (turning Gaston into a rose for Belle to clip). Hopefully not too much time is spent in neverland. I read they planned the season in two archs - this one which will end around christmas and the second one after the new year.

No, that was just an anonymous stooge Mermaid, Ariel will turn up and in Storybrooke. Rumpie taught Regina how to pull out hearts. Speaking of Regina she has her snark back..."How you going to do it Snow, with unicorn and rainbow stickers?" Please no more crying from Regina, just more insults for the Charmings.

[bold]Once Upon A Time is back, and serving up hot lunacy in Neverland[/bold]

The premiere of Once Upon A Time made a big splash in the new world of Neverland. And it also did a lot of really stupid crap that makes no sense. Oh well — let's watch the daughter of fairy-tale characters do pull-ups!

First up, many apologies for being late on this. I fell into a technological hellhole, that I still haven't really hoisted myself out of yet. But I'm back! And more importantly all of our favorite zany fairytale characters, who like to walk around and state exactly what emotions they are feeling, are back as well. Welcome, half formed human characters and fairytale freaks!

The new season is all about BELIEVING. Because there can be miracles when you believe! Or at least lots and lots of dirty lost boys who like to deliver their lines with sloooooooow pauses and laborious sentences. God we missed this show.

R38...the kept saying that magic doesn't work in our world like it does in theirs, yet, it always does.

"I loved that they made Mulan a lesbian."

Yeah. They made her a lesbian and then promptly made her part of Robin Hood's band of merry men. Wouldn't want her in the actual vicinity of any women, right?

I call cop out. Not only did they make the most masculine woman on the show the lesbian, they went for the two-fer and now they have minority and gay covered by one character...a part-time character at that.

by Anonymousreply 5210/17/2013

I thought they played it smart. They had Mulan say she was going to declare her love...but didn't say if it was Phillip or Aurora. Right after she says that we see Aurora's face and then Mulan says she is there to speak to her, not Phillip so we know who she is in love with. A cop out? Maybe, but it stops the "Family Values," nuts for going crazy while all the while we know, and the kids who watch the show know, what is going on. So these Family Values kids maybe will grow up and think, "Eh, whats the problem, its like Mulan and Aurora."

Marilyn Manson Heading to 'Once Upon a Time'

2:54 PM PDT 10/18/2013 by Philiana Ng

Once Upon a Time is going to the dark side.

Marilyn Manson will be joining ABC's fairy tale drama in the third season as a voice guest star, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

In the eighth episode, expected to air mid-November, Manson will make his Once Upon a Time debut voicing the character of The Shadow, who has already been seen this season. (The Shadow first appeared at the end of season two.)

"We've always been enormous fans of Marilyn Manson," creators/executive producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz told Rolling Stone, who first broke the news, in a joint statement. "We wanted to cast someone with the vocal ability to make our skin crawl."

This season, the motley crew of Emma (Jennifer Morrison), Regina (Lana Parrilla), Captain Hook (Colin O'Donoghue), Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Charming (Josh Dallas) have been thrust into the dark world of Neverland, with the mission to save Henry (Jared Gilmore) from the villainous Peter Pan (Robbie Kay) and the Lost Boys.

Season three has seen a slew of recurring players appear on the small screen, including Jamie Chung, Sean Maguire, Rose McIver, Julian Morris, Sarah Bolger and the upcoming appearance of Joanna Garcia.

The CAA-repped Manson appeared as himself on Showtime's Californication and starred in Sundance title Wrong Cops. His most recent album, Born Villain, was released in 2012.

Once Upon a Time airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Can someone please tell me which characters were killed off this season?


by Anonymousreply 6110/18/2013

Only Barbara Hershey as Nora seems to have been killed off and stayed dead. We were led to believe that the Jiminy Cricket guy and Baelfire were both killed, but Jiminy's only lasted an episode or two, and Baelfire is now revealed to be alive and on his way to Neverland.

The fact that Hershey has not showed up in the flashback scenes makes me wonder if she was upset about being killed off. Nora was one of the most interesting characters they had, and it's too bad they got rid of her.

by Anonymousreply 6210/18/2013

R62, the character's name was Cora, not Nora.

by Anonymousreply 6310/19/2013

Cora was the big kill last year, and I agree a waste. She should have been the super villain, they keep in a cage but she escapes when they need the ratings. But in addition to her minor characters like Lancelot (another waste) the guy Cora killed instead of Archie (that one no one seemed concerned that they buried instead of Archie) the guy on the docks Cora turned into a fish (so technically still alive) and Snow's old nanny, tossed out of the clock tower by Cora (God I loved that bitch.)

I actually think Neverland is not bad so far. Regina is back to being a sarcastic bitch who seems to just wait to insult Snow, Rump hasnt been on that much and we havent seen Belle much, and Capt Hook and Emma are starting a thing. We have Mulan in love and now Regina is going to get laid by Robin Hood so things are more interesting then last year.

Have to admit I did not see Pan being Rumple's father coming. Not sure I understand why he would kidnap and keep Wendy in a cage though. The shadow seems to be able to fly to the real world so why would it not be able to get Henry? It was not because there was no magic in Storybrooke, the rabbit got there just fine to get the Knave of Hearts (which was before the curse was broken). They do do reoccuring themes well though.

Pan abandoned Rumple, Rumple adandoned Neal, Neal abandoned Henry (although to be fair he didn't know she was pregnant.)

Snow gives up Emma, Emma gives up Henry..etc

The one problem is the evil queen. You want to redeem her but her back story, she has killed, thousands of people, murdered without a thought. Even Rumple seems less evil.

But Rump doesn't have the style and way with a bitchy remark that Regina she can be forgiven for all.

by Anonymousreply 11911/20/2013

Rumple probably killed more than Regina as he was the Evil One for centuries. He also trained Regina in black magic, so he bears some responsibilities for her bad deeds.

So it's official: The Charmings are preggers in real life. Ridiculous that they announced the engagement last month in an effort to get that news out there before the knocked up story. It's been so obvious all season that Goodwin is pregnant.

Rumple was not alive for centuries. It was shown he was still human during the war with the trolls and his wife left him for Hook before he became the dark one. Granted he did teach Regina her magic but she chose to become his pupil by taking the heart of his other pupil. Rumple never seems to kill, he seems to trap and trick.

What I don't get is why Rumple had to die to kill Pan?

I think they redeemed themselves with Pan being Rumple's father so Henery's great grand father.

I've like the plot twists so far this season. Yeah Neverland is a little confining so I hop they get back soon.

Pan annoyed me at first but now he's growing on me. And the lil twink that plays him is growing on me too. He really was well cast.

I hope they get Hook a prosthetic hand once all this rigamarole is over. Also, how can Hook remember Storybrooke? Is it because he was original from the "real world"? Does that mean anyone who was outside of the Enchanted Realm when Regina's curse first took place can remember Storybrooke too?

I think the only ones who won't remember Storybrooke will be Emma and Henry. For them, it never existed.

In the preview, we see Snow utter "We're back." That shows a level of self-awareness.

by Anonymousreply 15112/16/2013

I think that Regina deliberately wiped Emma and Henry's memories and lied about all of the other characters not being able to remember. Hook wasn't from the enchanted forest, so he should remember. Also, who the fuck was the green chick- the wicked witch of the west?

Regina didn't say that the Storybrooke folk would lose their memories, I don't think. She just said that Emma and Henry would because Storybrooke would cease to exist.

by Anonymousreply 15512/16/2013

The fairytale people know who they are and remember storybooke. Regina changed it so Emma kept Henry rather than give him up..she saved everyone, gave up her son so he could have a life with Emma. If that did not remove the black from her heart nothing will. Looks like the Wicked Witch of the West is coming to Storybrooke in March though. I have a feeling with Rumple gone and the Evil Queen no longer Evil...the other baddies from other lands will be moving in. Possibly Jafar for a Wonderland/Enchanted Forrest cross over??

by Anonymousreply 15612/18/2013

I hope the second half of this season sees Regina and Snow work out their differences. I'd hate to see Regina isolated while the Charmings community cuddlefest continues.

I still can't stand Emma. I think it's Jennifer Morrison's scrunched-up face way of showing emotion. "But I'm the savior!" Ugh.

Lara Parilla's Regina is the best thing about "Once Upon a Time." I don't want to see her get all goody-goody on us.

I am not sure about Snow and Regina, if Goodwin is pregnant and Snow is pregnant, Regina might have some issues with Snow getting a baby and not her. I hope they follow up on Robin Hood being the love of Regina's life..Regina might have other problems anyway. If they are all back as they were, Malificent might be might pissed off, as well as a few other bad guys from fairy tales and as we saw the Wicked Witch is coming to the enchanted forrest.

by Anonymousreply 15912/18/2013

I'm with R144.

But here's the thing: The main reason I've stuck with this show is because it's so much fun watching Mr. Gold/Rumple.

If he's gone, what's the point?

This is the note it should have ended on.

While I appreciate this show's ability to keep re-inventing itself, at some point... it'll have gone on too long, and taken one step too far. I fear that time is coming sooner rather than later.

Can someone explain to me why Rumple "had" to die in order for Pan to die?? I didn't understand that scene - what did the dagger have to do with anything? Why couldn't he have just stabbed Pan without stabbing/killing himself?

Also Henry is the WORST - I laughed so much when he was trying to play evil during the body-switch.

by Anonymousreply 16212/19/2013

I can't help you there. It seemed like just some handwaving to me. "Magic". The rules for magic on this show are so arbitrary.

by Anonymousreply 16312/19/2013

Regina explained that the Pan's reinvention of the curse would make them all slaves so to save them all she would tweak it to take them back to the Enchanted Forest..and to "Where they were originally from" i.e. Whale would go back to Gothic Land,etc.(if they stayed put they wouldnt know who they were so I wonder with Pan dead, if they would all stumble around like a Walker?) Henry could not go as he is from our world. To keep him from being stranded Emma decided to stay as she is the savior and exempt, and Regina's gift to them was to make it seem as if Emma raised him all along and they were happy. She did this as they would not remember Storybrook as to the rest of the world, it would seem as if the town never existed. She didnt turn back time, so everyone who died is still dead. I like Regina as the sarcastic bitchy anti heroine not the villan.

by Anonymousreply 16712/30/2013

When Regina altered Pan's version of the curse, she had to make a sacrifice and that was leaving Henry. As she said, Storybrook doesn't belong in our world and neither do any of them, so to keep them all from being mindless drones for a dead Pan she had to send them back. The curse reversed itself so to speak so it wiped Storybrook off of the face of this world and everyone left in our world would longer remember it ever existing, including Emma and Henry. Regina had to fill in Emma's two year's in SB and Henry's entire life there so she tweaked their memories to make them have a happier past together (thus redeeming her in a nice way instead of the crying of last season. )

My question is, what about the Lost Boys who are from our world (Regina said everyone would go back from "Where they came," not just the Enchanted Forest. Is Hook from our world (in the past) and that is why he can come and go?

The Wicked Witch of the West is going to look good, and yes, I am such a dork I am excited about he back half of this season now.

by Anonymousreply 16801/03/2014

I doubt Rumple is dead, remember the curse of the dark one passes to the man who uses the blade to kill the dark one - so in essence he killed himself with the blade so his name will still be on it. Emma did not decide to stay, Regina decided to let her stay. She let Henry go with her and used her magic to re-write her history..the problem I see there is she only re-wrote it to where Emma gave up Henry. She still knows who Neil is so why would hook not bring Neil with him?

by Anonymousreply 16901/08/2014

Did anyone watch last night's episdode? We're getting a "Wicked" witch next week, complete with green skin.

Hook visited Emma and gave her a potion to drink so that she would remember being in Storybrooke.

A year had passed between the time the curse was reversed and when Hook showed up at Emma's place. The Wicked Witch (of the West, I presume) is probably responsible for putting everyone back into Storybrooke.

They could have made things a LOT more clear. It wasn't clear at ALL what was going on, and when Emma just went off with Hook, and they found Storybrook and everyone there, that was just ... completely confusing.

So basically anyone could have come, not just Hook (why Hook?) as they were all there the entire time. But none of that was made clear at any point.

'Once Upon a Time in Wonderland' star Michael Socha joining 'Once Upon a Time' as series regular

By Sydney Bucksbaum | April 1, 2014 3:15 PM ET

Hot on the heels of the cancelation of "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland," spinoff series star Michael Socha is heading to the original series "Once Upon a Time" as a series regular.

EW reports that if ABC renews the original series -- which is likely, but ABC has yet to make any 2014-15 renewal decisions -- then Socha's Knave of Hearts/Will Scarlet will head to Storybrooke next season.

This is great news, as Socha was the clear breakout star of the spinoff series and will add a twist of sarcastic and charming humor to the ABC fairytale drama. However, since "Once Upon a Time" has not been officially renewed yet, this is not a done deal.

What do you think of Socha's potential crossover? What other "Wonderland" favorites do you want to see head over to Storybrooke? Let us know in the comments below.

The "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" series finale airs Thursday, April 3 at 8 p.m. ET and "Once Upon a Time" airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Decent enough season finale, bridging the present season and introducing elements for the next one.
