"You're not going to believe what I saw"
I'm sorry, but I just...I simply have no words right now (but don't worry, I'll find them). I mean, Jane Espenson is so freaking amazing when she writes ONCE. For real. "Skin Deep" last season and now this. That lady deserves some serious applause.
I have been so completely floored by this episode. WOW.
Victor was portrayed SO WELL by David Anders. He deserves a lot of Emmys for this performance, and the way Jane wrote him was fantastic. I was feeling so horrible for the character, and yet also incredibly confused by lots of his actions. He's a well rounded character, and I would love to see some more of him.
The Brother came off interestingly. The relationship between him and Victor was very complex, and it was definitely one that was understandably devastating for Victor, even though he was the under-appreciated son. Their Father was a complete jackwagon and I am perfectly at peace with the fact that Frankenstein's monster choked him to death, even though it was a gruesome and eye-popping thing to see.
I can't help wondering why Rumple wanted to learn Victor's science. I mean, he did say his deceased were better off resting in the heart or something. Perhaps he was thinking of Belle? Or maybe he just wanted an excuse to hang out with Victor and get their boy band started.
Regina, my poor bb! I know I always say I like her evil, but seriously, that was heartbreaking. Especially because I do think she should be Henry's mother, much as I like Emma. And who knows, what with Emma being gone, Regina might just get her wish.
Hook. You are stupid. You are a very dumb man, and as Emma pointed out, dead guy of the year to boot.
Cora is such a nasty *bites back profanity to keep blog acceptable*...woman! My god! And what WAS all that with her and Rum! I am so not cool with her going around tormenting everyone like she does! I finally know the feeling of being an Evil Regal, and watching her mess with Regina all the bloody time. She's a miserable person and I beg the writers to rid us of her.
I feel like the Charmings were not relevant at all, so I'm skipping over them for now.
So, that guy from Pennsylvania!! I am so excited to see what goes down with him and all of Storybrooke. I think it'll be mega-interesting.
I wanted to avoid talking about Belle because that girl combined with Jane's fantastic writing was just way too much for me. I mean...the cup. THE CHIPPED CUP. She called it "a cup" he said "what is this?" and she was like, "it's...a cup". And I said "NO BB ITS NOT JUST A CUP YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS ISN'T FAIR!!" Seeing her that way was insane. And I have a strange theory about that. Since when you cross the line, your SB identity becomes your only identity, perhaps we'll see who Belle was before remembering, and perhaps we'll see that she wasn't institutionalized for no reason. Maybe Belle actually is crazy. I don't know, I'm just throwing it out there.
Gold's expressions were the most painful thing to witness in the episode. Robert Carlyle for ALL THE AWARDS! That man is a complete revelation! I just hope he can get Belle back.
-I wonder how Emma and Gold are gonna be as traveling buddies
-So, like, when is the bonfire for Cora? I mean the one where we put her in it.
-The Charmings were being so insensitive toward Rum in this episode. His true love just forgot about him, have a little sympathy! He is the only one who is even good at your relationship!
-What is the twisted backstory with Cora and Rumple!? I really want to know!
-Sooo...Red Whale? Is that a thing now?
-If Rumple kills Hook...how much of a tragedy would that really be? Kidding! Kind of...
-Belle better fix that cup when she remembers, and also be waiting for him with with some, uh...activity plans
-Jane Espenson is a writing goddess. Sorry, did I say that already? Too bad.
-Also, I promise I didn't put that gif on here because I hate you, I promise.
I think that's all I've got! Have a pleasant THREE WEEKS (Why?????) and I will see you then! Comment or send me your stuff on twitter, @OUAFanBlog and I will see ya'll soon! Stay magical, I love you guys!
