"What I really want is you"-Neal CassadyExcuse 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.
NOT-STORYBROOKE (EMMA FLASHBACKS)
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!
