Season 3, Episode 8: "Think Lovely Thoughts"

"When Peter Pan lives...Henry will die"-Wendy
I'm baaaaaack!!!
Ok. Whew. I have to take a lot of deep breaths before I write this. 
Can I be honest with you guys? I thought this episode was pretty stupid before the last five minutes. And that makes me mad because most Rumple episodes are not stupid.
Don't get me wrong, a lot of this was super awesome, but some of it I just could not bring myself to like. Anyway, I'm going to start explaining why. 

Fairytale Land:
Here's what I'm going to do. I'm going to give you a bullet list about what was wrong with the Rumple's dad backstory:
-That guy did NOT look or act like Robbie Kay at all. 
-Where was Rumple's mom?
-Is character development even a thing?
-Oh yes, it fully makes sense to just suddenly stop caring about your son. 
-Does he even have a name?
I just...I did not like this. And if I'm being honest with myself, it's because I love Peter Pan and in this episode they basically turned him into a weird, creepy, old guy. I think an awesome character like Pan deserves more than that. I guess it's kind of what the writers were going for though, since it definitely made me like Peter Pan a lot less. That's all I'm saying about this portion since Rumple honestly just stood by and got his heart broken. 
Here's where I start being nice again:
Rumple/Pan confrontation=awesome! A+, writers, I liked it. Robert Carlyle played it so well. Robbie Kay was phenomenal. I loved it. I also was SHOCKED that the writers actually inflicted a real cliffhanger on the audience via Rumple! I mean, they've been playing the "Henry is your undoing" card all season, but then they chicken out and let him live. But they finally did something! I mean, it's not like I think they'll keep Rumple inside Pandora's box, but I think the fact they they even tried is kind of great. 
Same with Henry...woah, writers, did you really just do that???? I fully did not know you had that in you! And for the record, all my tweets about wanting Pan to live are kind of dead at this point. I mean, I still love Robbie Kay, but Peter Pan creeps me out now. It's very sad, actually. 
The Charmings/Regina did not do a lot of things here that shocked me or anything. They just hung out like they always do. 
Darling Pan just got beyond creepy. 

Lingering Thoughts/Questions/Musings:
-How do you think Pan's story will end?
-Can you believe we have to wait TWO WEEKS???
-How do you think Rumple and Henry will be saved?
-Do you think the show is predictable? I mean, I was certain that Pan was Rumple's dad, but only because I read a theory about it on tumblr. Honestly, I don't think I would have guessed it otherwise. 
-How do you feel about Pan being Rum's dad? I don't actually hate it, I just don't like how the show handled it. 
-What do you think is going to happen with all of these extra characters now?

That's all I've got! Thanks for reading and please follow me on twitter @OUAFanBlog. You guys are amazing and I will see all your awesome faces (not really, but let me have my moment) on Thursday!
PS: Chiefs fans- HAHAHAHAHA 
alright, I'm done now.

Short Posting Hiatus!

Because I could not complete my review this week (or even see the episode yet due to running around completing job applications) and I will be in Costa Rica this upcoming Sunday, the next time I will be posting a review is the Sunday after this next one.

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!
