An decent episode, the whole pep talk thing is getting abit old

However i do enjoy the bits with Rumplestiltskin and Regina flashbacks, present day rumplestiltskin is ok i guess aswell

Peter Pan is starting to Grow on me..... i actually love that he is vastly different from the original law, and Hook is more of an Anti Hero that sometimes does villainous things whereas Pan is i suspect just a villain i think that is pretty cool

Wasn't to keen on the Excalibur thing tho

I was glad the Excalibur thing turned out to be just a trick to get Snow going. I'm glad Camelot is still in it's own realm.

Loved that Belle was Rumple's own mind working on him, that was clever.

I thought the Magic Mirror coming back was pretty cool.
Also, Robert Carlyle is too good for this show. It'd be long canceled without him.

I was pleasantly surprised by that.

As for RC, I think the show would still be running, but Robert always has a great performance. Whenever he has a scene with someone it steps up their game.

Yea, they could have done without that aspect. As for pan, what IS his deal? Is he really a demon, or has the 'shadow side of him' turned him evil?

I disagree with that. He's often not even been in an episode, and in others he's barely been present but for a moment or two. Yet the show's ratings are still strong and they are now into the 3rd season.

I for one at times don't even realize he's in an episode until he shows up. I would miss him if he were gone altogether, but don't think it would affect the ratings all that much.

He doesn't hurt the ratings either. :D

True. Some people likely watch the show just to see him. I watch it for the whole ensemble. :)

Maybe he is supposed to be a more grown up approach to his story. Neverland itself certainly is alot darker, with Orphans hearing other Kids cry in the middle of the Dark. I just noticed though, we have not seen the light of Day in Neverland so far. So could there be something seriously wrong with the whole Area? It certainly benefits the Shadows.

I'd love to hear guesses about this too. I've read reviews from way back when they first touched on Pan saying the original source material didn't paint Peter as a villain by any means, but he was a much darker character. I also read that his shadow did play a big part in his lore.

Can anyone enlighten? Like most on here probably, I know nothing about Peter outside of Hook and the main Disney film. Also, are we expecting to see Tinker Bell?

I watch it for the new take on the classic stories.
And out of hope that Jefferson will one day return.

I like Emma a lot more this season for some reason. She's still not one of my favorites, but I am liking her more.
I didn't really like the Snow/Charming/Regina flashbacks; to me, they're coming off as repetitive at this point.
I really liked Rumple's scenes. I also liked the little bit of banter between Hook and Charming.

I do like the Snow/Charming/Regina flashbacks for one reason, its not Regina but the evil queen i find Lana Parilta is better at playing the evil queen then playing Regina

Its kind of the same deal with Rumplestiltskin/the dark one/Mr Gold but i kind of don't mind Mr Gold

Despite Grumpy being one of the strongest recurring characters, the shrunken ensemble extremely damages the show. Those flashbacks would be much better if we had more character interactions. It's unfortunate about Red, she started off as hollow, they devoted a lot of effort into making her integral to the Storybrooke & Enchanted Forrest plot, and now they've lost her due to the actress starring elsewhere.

There are some others who would be nice to see too.

I like the way Lana plays both roles. I don't dislike the flashbacks in general, I just find the ones that specifically center on the Snow/Charming/Regina dynamic kind of annoying right now.

I agree with you. Red actually became one of my favorite characters late in season one/early in season two. I loved her friendship with Snow White. I really disliked how they pretty much stopped writing for the character towards the middle of season 2. I think Red/Ruby was actually upgraded from a recurring character to a main character for season two. I read in some interview that the actress asked to be allowed to try out for other shows because they weren't doing anything with her character, since the writers changed their minds about the direction they wanted to take the season(2) or something. I really miss the character.

I would love to see other characters come back as well.

I also would like to see maybe some time being focused BACK into storybrook, to see how they are all doing.
As the 'ministry sent more agents to deal with the place?
How are they all getting along with some of their bigger players out of the picture..

I was actually getting a little tired of storybrook, part of me hopes that we can leave it all together and all those characters can get back to the enchanted forest maybe in season 4? if we get it

But the problem is that isn't the Enchanted Forest like half ruined because of the curse? So if all of the characters went back to the Enchanted Forest, (A) it would be interesting to see how they would all get there, and (B) they would have to rebuild a lot of it in order to make the Enchanted Forest like it was before.

Didn't Snow say something in one of last season's episodes about everyone working together to rebuild the kingdom if they went back? I could be wrong. :)

It was just the worst possible way to handle Red. I wouldn't have minded too much if they kept her as the air-headed waitress, but she became so fascinating & integral to the story...

I wonder about Belle, because the producers say they've bumped her up to a starring role for this season. Do you think all of that's going to be imaginary!Belle, or will we actually start seeing Storybrooke again soon?

I also wish it were some kind of projection spell letting Rumple & Belle communicate rather than his imagination, because that means as soon as they're reunited in person, they lose a year of Belle's plot--since it's not really her.

It would be really interesting if all the characters that are in Storybrook currently end up somehow traveling to Neverland in order to help find Henry.

I agree, it was poorly handled. The character was built up as important, and a really good friend/ally to the main characters and then she just kind of disappeared.

I feel that they really have to get back to what's been going on in Storybrooke sometime soon, they really need to show what is happening to all those characters that were felt behind, especially Belle(I'd assumed that writers left her behind just so that they would have a main character to follow in Storybrooke). I'm not sure if it's true, but I read somewhere(I think it was on imdb, but I don't really remember) that ep 6 will involve Storybrooke. That still kind of seems like a long time without checking in on what's been going on there.

That's true. It was nice that Rumple imagined Belle, but it doesn't do anything for Belle as a character, so I hope that they get back to Storybrooke soon, or at least find a way for actual communication between lands.

I could have misread something awhwile back, but the gist of the article was that the first half of this season would focus on the events unfolding in NeverLand, and the 2d half of the season would focus on events in Storybrooke, instead of bouncing back and forth between the two as has happened in the prior seasons.

I remember reading something like that too a while back(and I didn't really like the way that sounded). I'm not really sure if ep 6 takes place in Storybrooke itself, or just involves a character or characters(supposedly Belle and Ariel) that are presently in Storybrooke but are maybe just seen in flashbacks during the episode(with Ariel either being in either Neverland or the Enchanted Forest present day instead of Storybrooke).

Well, i think they can milk the never land/pan angle 2-3 more episodes..
