Season 2, Episode 8: "Into the Deep"

"If there's one thing I know about your grandparents: they always find each other."-Regina
I am so speechless right now. That was awesome. This week has been pretty awesome for me. Been seeing the Les Mis trailer all over the place (who wants to come with me?), plus another Broncos win today. Then this beautiful ONCE episode. Even though we got no fairytale land flashbacks, we definitely got enough of other things for me to be happy. Like, insanely happy. And sad. And angry? I need to start talking, huh?

You know what sucks? I literally just started shipping Mulan and Aurora. In this episode. Then I started shipping Hook and Aurora. Then Cora took it upon herself to destroy both of my new ships. I am not okay with this. Anyway, Cora has definitely proved to me that she really is the bad guy here. Honestly though, I'm not really feeling it. I liked Rum and Regina as villians, so changing that feels wrong to me. Whatever. I have faith in the show so I will let them figure it out.
So, Emma hasn't been doing much lately. Kinda weird, but I guess I can roll with it. But you know what else I can roll with? An,Emma/Neal reunion. (unhealthy attatchment? Whatever do you mean!?)
Hook is sexy. Unbelievably so. My feeling about him are scattered because of this. I will get back to ya'll.
Okay but that thing with Aurora...what!? I'm so conflicted. Help!

Aurora is such a lovely girl, and she proved that here. I really hope this wasn't the end of her! Her dreams with Henry were an interesting aspect and I want to see them meet in person. Just...just don't hurt my bb, writers! Don't do it!
Henry needed to scream louder! Just kidding, I know it's not his fault, but I still have some irritation left over about it.
Snow and Charming! Oh Gods, my beautiful babies! I am so sorry you guys, but I love Snowing. I will always love them. Their moment was perfect and I cried a little. No regrets!

Belle and Mr. Gold got their hamburger!! Lalalalalalalala sorry, can't hear you, I'm too busy singing about my beautiful OTP! But Regina. Stop. I love you, but that was not the time or place.
Unpopular opinion: I so prefer evil Regina to this non-magic-using, lame version of her. Where is my badass girl? I do not approve. Oh well, her moments with Henry were still cute.
David. I thought we were done with you being an idiot. I know you love your wife but clearly this was a sketchy idea. I say try again with Henry. You are still stupid. And don't you dare use the "we were cursed" excuse on me!
Mr. Gold is too perfect *stands up and claps* I love this man way too much. It's bad, guys.

-Is Aurora dead? What is happenning there!? Why!? I can't.
-I have so many mixed feelings about Hook.
-Snowing! Sorry, ya'll, my Snowing shipper side loves to come out sometimes.
-I demand Mr. Gold read me a bedtime story!
-Don't worry, Henry. Regina and Grandpa Rum will take care of you! (what do you mean, I'm not over SwanFire?)
-Speaking of Rum and Henry possibly being related, David's "that kind of faith runs in our family" thing made me laugh. I love Rumple, but faith isn't really his thing for the most part.
-Rum wants to protect Belle again! Though she might just end up protecting him from a certain sexy pirate...
-I'm having a hamburger tomorrow. And some iced tea.
-was there a point to the zombie thing, because I missed it...
-Aurora wanted to go to SB! My heart broke for her there! She deserves another prince...or pirate...or Mulan...guys, this show is hurting me.
-Next week will be the end of me. I cannot take it if we get another episode like "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter" before hiatus again. I won't be able to take it.
-Actually, lets not even talk about hiatus. The weeks between next Sunday and January hereby no longer exist. No ONCE for three weeks? Please, I'll be under a sleeping curse with David so I can tell him what an idiot he is.

That's all from me! Thoughts go in the comments or to my twitter, @OUAFanBlog. I love you all and have a magical week!

Season 2, Episode 7: "Child of the Moon"

"Wolfstime or not, you won't hurt anyone tonight"-David/Charming

I am so sorry my review is so late! I was forced into eating dinner out at what had to be 7PM. I was not able to watch until about eleven at night, and I was pretty tired so forgive me if I am at all inaccurate. I have not missed a ONCE episode since February 12th ("Skin Deep", and yes I remember the date...). Anyway, enough about me, let's get to the episode.
Okay, to be quite honest, I was a little unimpressed, especially with the high standards I hold ONCE to, but whatever. It was still good.
Red and Snow are adorable as friends, I love the dynamic they have, and I love that they are always there for each other, no matter what happens. And, wow, does a lot of stuff happen.
Red's Mom was not very likable, IMO, she was a little crazy and started to remind me of Cora. Seriously, these writers need to think about the parental issues they scar every single character with. Personally, I think Red's mom was a little crazy, and a little too desperate to be different, and to make Red as such. In the words of Sebastian (crab from "The Little Mermaid") "children got to be free to live their own lives."
Quinn reminded me of a wolf-August at first, but over the course of the episode he grew of me a bit. He's a broken character, as is everyone on the show, and it was sad to see him die, probably more so for Snow than anyone else. The poor girl is probably sick of seeing people die because of her.
Red in general is such a wonderful character, and Meghan Ory portrays her nicely. She is such a strong character, and I love that she was willing to protect Snow, it was incredibly sweet.

Oh Gods this part was so weird I don't even know what to say. I figure it is best to just dive right in, rip it off  like a band aid, so....
King George/Spencer is a crazy person. From what I can tell, Charming really did not do all that much wrong to him except not marry Abigail. And now he does not even have a right to complain because David DID end up marrying Abigail. I know, I know, that does not really count because they were cursed, but still. The man needs cry me a river, build a bridge, and get over it. Snow and Emma are gone, David is clearly already a wreck. It was just mean to try and take him down for no reason. Besides, Storybrooke is hardly a monarchy. I have no idea what King George was trying to accomplish. Seriously, step down, Charles Whidmore!
Poor Billy! I was about two minutes away from forming an unhealthy attachment to him!I will not be forgiving these writers for this very easily, nor will I be showing any more sympathy toward King George.
It was interesting to see Belle and Mr. Gold both in the episode, but having no scenes together. I will not lie and say I was happy with it, but it was nice to see their faces on my screen either way. I just hope we see more of them together soon.
David is having an emotional breakdown, I think. When he shows more than one manly tear you know everything just got real.
Ruby, again, is a sweetheart, and I'm glad we are past this whole wolf thing now. Nobody is going to be trying to pin murders on her or anything. However, I do think she might want someone to talk to. Maybe  therapist. Maybe a certain ginger cricket therapist. I think they would get along quite nicely. *wink wink*

Aurora and Henry are confusing me. I am very confused. Confusion.

-I'm sorry, but I have to say this. After all this time of me calling David a total Jack Shephard, King George, aka Charles Whidmore, calls him simply "Shephard". I am so done. Sorry if ya'll didn't watch LOST, you had better get to renting the DVDs or something because it is necessary.
-Since I'm still having major Tallahassee detox, I want to know when we can see Neal/Bae (Cause he's Bae.) again. *grovels at the feet of Eddy and Adam*
-Hey! Yeah, OUAT writers! Where's my hamburger date scene!?
-Did ya'll see that promo? Zombies? What!?

Okay, that's all from me. I will see you all in two weeks due to the stupid American Music Awards. Questions go in comments or to my twitter, @OUAFanBlog. Have a magical two weeks, my lovely oncers!

Season 2, Episode 6: Tallahassee

"What I really want is you"-Neal Cassady
Excuse me while I dry my tears. That was beautiful, even with me being totally biased about it since I have been wanting an Emma episode forever. Not to mention the fact that they used Jorge Garcia as the giant. I really liked this episode, and I have so much to say about it so I'll shut up and do that.

I am not really feeling this Hook and Emma thing. Maybe it just needs to grow on me, or maybe I'm still holding out for SwanQueen, but either way I just do not think they are right for each other. However, I will never complain about Hook acting more sexy than he already is, so I guess I can live with it. And their segment was pretty entertaining, what with all their heisting and stuff.
Snow, Aurora, and Mulan were pretty lame. I mean, I am still waiting for Aurora and Mulan to have some real significance here, and I am not getting that. The characters are falling flat for me, but I trust OUAT to pick them up again.
The Giant was awesome, and not just because he is Hurley. I seriously loved what they did with it. They turn the villians into the victims and it works. I am holding out for some backstory on the giant.

STORYBROOKE (all ten seconds of it):
So, Henry and Aurora dreamed of each other, huh? Yeah, um...what?
Charming is perfect. The end.

Oh, Gods this is going to be interesting.
Emma and Neal are the epidamy of perfection to me. I tend to fall in love with messed up ships like this, and they were no exception. Every time they kissed it made me squeal because I love the idea of them,so much. Obviously, they are both such incredibly broken souls, and it makes for such a heartbreaking story. And, unfortunately, those are the stories I always fall in love with. I mean, you guys saw me after "Skin Deep". You know what I am talking about.
I hope August gets burned in a fire.  (preferably by Mr. Gold. Belle can help.) I know some of you guys like him, but in my brain he is officially the male version of the Blue Fairy. He sunk my ship and completely crushed both Emma and Neal for completely selfish reasons. If you all remember "The Return" August is very good at crushing the souls of people for selfish reasons. I just can't stand him. I am 100 percent okay with him staying wooden. Like, forever.

-I'll say it: I totally think and hope Neal is Baelfire. SwanFire all the way. I ship it like fedex.
-I hope to the Gods that we get more of Neal stat. Because I have already developed a little crush on the character and I need him back in my life. I demand to have him on another episode. Now.
-Backstory for the Giant, please.
-How are you guys standing on thia Captain Swan business?
-August is a brat. Sorry, I had to say it again.
-Do ya'll trust Hook?
-No Rum, Belle, or Gina. But despite that, I still found a way to love it. You win this round, OUAT, but you'd better get to that hamburger date scene or things will get nasty.
-No ONCE on the 18th because Satan decided to create the American Music Awards. I'm kidding, but I will miss our show very much.
-That promo! All you Little Reds must be freaking out!
Okay, I'm done now. Questions go in comments or to the twitter, @OUAFanBlog. Have a magical week and I will see you all,next Sunday!
