This, to me, was clearly the better part of the episode. It showed so much of Regina that we have not seen for a while. It all was very interesting because it portrayed Regina as very selfish, which we all can admit that she is. I recently re-watched the pilot and in that episode they basically set up the idea that Regina didn't really love Henry. It almost seemed like that here because Regina wanted Henry for herself, not for him, and it took almost losing him for her to realize how important a mother was for him to have.
Now, the other big character of this segment was Mr. Gold. Now, if you all recall, Gold actually didn't remember. He remembered nothing until he heard Emma's name in the pilot. I love that because it makes Gold so much more diabolical. It trips up Regina so bad and it was so great and I just loved it. I also loved that first scene with Regina and Rumple in the cell. It was all really lovely and it reminded me of season 1.
We also saw Dr Whale! I love Whale so I got really fangirly when he came on screen.
Also, Sydney was in the episode kind of!
And just all those SB people, it was fabulous.
So, I'm just going to let you guys know my whole stance on Regina's complaint that she has nothing and Emma has everything. See...it's kind of her fault. She's the one who killed her dad, and she's the one who wouldn't go in and meet her true love and all that. I'm not happy that Regina's life sucks because I love Regina, but that complaint was really hypocritical.
Emma and Neal were really good in this episode. I liked Emma's little speech to the lost boys and Neal's little moment with his dad. Although I totally didn't understand how Rumple got released from the box. Oh well.
Peter Pan is such a nasty little thing...but Robbie Kay is absolute perfection. Pan was everything he should have been in this episode, and it was great. I loved his whole creepy-appearing-in-the-ship thing. And I loved the plot twist with him possessing Henry. I'm so excited for next week with all this new stuff, I expect it will be nothing short of fabulous.
May I just say that it's so ridiculous that they are trying to make us think Hook is a good guy now? I'm sorry, and I know they do the same thing with Rumple and Regina and it's annoying there too, but are we really just going to forget all the crap Hook did in season 2? I'm sorry, but I'm never going to like this character, to be honest. It has nothing to do with me liking Swanfire or Swan Queen. It's just...Hook. Sorry to fans of him, he's just not a favorite of mine.
I hope we get lots of Snowing in Storybrooke!
-How do you think this whole body-switch thing is gonna go down?
-Are you happy we're going back to Storybrooke?
-What did you think of the Henry adoption story?
-Do you want to see more of the love triangle stuff?
-What did you think of 'Save Henry'?
Alright, that's all from me! Hope you guys liked! Follow me on twitter at @OUAFanBlog and I will see your perfect faces on Thursday! Bye!

As always, if you would like to fill in for me and write a review for either of the episodes that I missed, simply leave a comment or tweet me (@OUAFanBlog) and I'll get you a seashell from the beach on Sunday (plus I'll love you forever)
Thanks so much for your patience, guys!

Basically, I'm super damn lazy when it comes to writing full blown reviews and since I know that a lot of you might not even watch Wonderland, I'm just going to do short podcasts for each episode. Please take the time to listen if you can!
Anyway, that's that. Just wanted to let ya'll know. I'm super stoked for Thursday, Wonderland seriously looks amazing!!

Tamara as a character is just obnoxious, and we all know that she's just there to make an obstacle for Swanfire/Swan Thief. Her whole obsession with magic seems like it's just another thing to make her evil. I hope there is more to this that is less ridiculous. Also the taser is really, really dumb. How does taser beat mystical mushu? How does taser beat Pinnochio?
Also, I'm going to address the idea that there is racism presented in the fact that Tamara is "evil". I really don't think so. As it happens, yes, she is a woman of color, but I do not think the writers were taking a stab at other POCs with her character. I highly doubt Adam and Eddy were thinking that all black people are hoodlums who do around tasering everyone. It's a Tamara thing, not a POC thing.
The absolute worst thing in this was definitely that they made Pinnochio seven years old, though. I mean. . .
Wooden Swan shippers. . .I am so sorry. I know that if this happened to Neal or Emma, or to Rumpelstiltskin or Belle, I would be out to kill the writers. You guys do not deserve this.
As you all probably recall, in the episode "Manahattan", Mr. Gold says: "I can take away the pain", to which Nealfire responds, "Take away who I am? No thanks."
The point of me mentioning that quote this that they took away who August is. The utterly demolished his character by making him seven again. I can't think of any other way to put it. They should have killed him off. They really, really should have killed him off.
Okay, I'm almost done grilling the show, but there's one more thing I want to address, and that is dropped storylines. They have given us some really promising storylines throughout the season, and all of them get dropped instantly. Here are some examples:
-Belle being an amnesiac.
-Charming and Snow's arguing about going back to FTL gets occasional screentime, I guess.
-Mulan, Aurora, and Phillip.
-Regina wanting to get Henry back.
-Hook. Someone tell me: WHAT IS THE POINT OF HOOK?
-Henry being Rumple's undoing.
-We got about thirty seconds to address everything about the last episode. That had better not be the only thing we get.
I mean, instead of addressing all of these things, we meet "The Dragon" and find a way to drop the Pinnochio story!
Alright. That was my last complaint. Emma, Henry, Neal, Regina and Charming were all very nice in this episode. Snow was okay too.
-What's the deal with Tamara? What do you guys think will happen with her?
-Do you think we'll see the Dragon again?
-Where do ya'll think Owen's dad is? Do you believe Regina?
-Aren't you just so overjoyed about the hiatus? *sarcasm*
-What'd ya'll think of August here?
-Was anyone else disappointed by the lack of Rumple? And basically every other character. . .
-How did you feel about this episode?
Okay, that's all from me! Have a bearable hiatus and stay magical! Hit me up on twitter if you have questions (@OUAFanBlog), or leave a comment.

-So, Henry has literally heard the same freaking lesson in school every day for his entire life. He was probably like. "YOU SAID THIS EVERY DAY!" "WHERE IS SUMMER" "OK LEGIT WHY IS NO ONE QUESTIONING THIS EXCEPT ME??" "
MARCO THAT SIGN IS BREAKING EVERY DAY JUST GIVE UP!"
-So, I'm listening to the ONCE Podcast (they're awesome, ya'll should listen to them) and they thought exactly what I did. I thought the lovey-curse thing was THE curse. Like, the one that brought them to SB. I thought that Gina was re-enacting it.
-Granny is so sassy: "when I said over-easy I was talking about the eggs!"

-Welcome to Storybrooke
Basically the storyline just moves forward but we all get a glance into the past on the first day of the curse's enactment. But really all everyone cares about is that Graham is back, which is understandable.
-Selfless, Brave, and True
We finally find out what happened to August. I feel like this episode is a little late but whatever. Plus, this totally defeats my theory of him being burned in Mr. Gold's backyard.
Belle has a Storybrooke identity besides an insane person. Her name is Lacey, but everyone has taken to calling her "Racy Lacey" because of spoiler photos. There was supposed to be a 4-week hiatus before this episode, but it has been taken off wikipedia so I guess it was a flake.
-The Evil Queen
To be honest, I have no clue.
-Second Star to the Right
Eddy and Adam have said we're going to see another land this season so I feel like this is pretty self-explanatory.
-. . .And Straight on Till Morning
Yeah so it's the finale.
That's the rest of season 2! We have six more episodes, and I am excited for all of them
You guys are awesome, see ya'll Sunday!
