Decent episode. Like that it took regina to get Emma to realise hate fuels magic. And love the "Echo chamber'.
Other than that, i didn't like the ep.

The Airel flashbacks seems completely disconnected from the episode until a small connection at the end. I did like most of the events that took place on Neverland, although Pan is getting a little annoying at this point. If he is so powerful, why let them all live?

I really doubt Pan wants to "save magic" I think he is feeding Henry a pile of lies.

We just don't see anything from him that makes us think anything but he is the bad guy.

Loved the reveal of who Belle truly was. I was getting sick of her showing up in Neverland and not being the real Belle. Also those scenes usually meant Rumpel was just standing still and not advancing the plot.

I really wished they had wrapped up Neverland sooner. It's just such a slow crawl.

Hate doesn't fuel magic. The Blue Fairy/Mother Superior shows that. The protection spell/invisible chalk required love.
The only kind of magic Regina knows comes from anger. There'd definitely be magic which comes from love, and it will probably wrap up the season.

Interesting episode. I think they tried to juggle too many separate bits in it, though. Interesting secrets everyone wound up admitting. Also interesting that Emma's secret was just between her and Neal, and that the others didn't get to hear it. I felt a bit sorry for Hook; I have to wonder what's going to happen to him later on once Henry is rescued and they all get off the island.

I also didn't find Ariel very interesting. She seemed to be kind of one dimensional (or maybe two). I didn't like how she took Snow's legs away from her without even talking to her first ... and then couldn't figure out why Snow was upset about it.

She was happy to learn he was alive, but she was sad too. Because she knew she still loved him when she saw him in Manhatten, but then had to deal with all her feelings of being hurt and loss.

So her secret was she was hoping he was dead so she didn't have to go through that again.

At least, that's what I got.

thank you. :)

i'm not real thrilled with her being with neal or hook, but i guess i'd choose hook first.

I really don't see much chemistry between either of them.

Snow and Charming had so many scenes toegther the actors, have built a great chemistry. But Neal and Hook...well neal was engaged when Emma found him. In the past it seemed like they had fun, but it wasn't much.

Now is the only time Neal is free to be with her but then they have to deal with the never-ending Neverland tale.

Hook was a villian or trickster so Emma never trusted him. Then he came to storybroke and again was a problem for Emma. Now he is helping her, but there just isn't much there between them.

Focus on the characters and don't force relationships because of the story, that's all I've got.

When I first found out that Regina was going to play Ursula I was lying on the floor laughing. But she portrayed the Character very well, even had that over pronouncing with her mouth wide open thing going. As for the Flashbacks tying into the Story, well I have seen worse. It gave us some much needed Backstory on Ariel. Also, does this mean that the real Ursula could possibly be in Storybrook as well?

Just wondering if Ariel will really help. I mean Regina is quite the Witch with a B and Ariel has spent more then 28 Years without her Voice.

Besides that I couldn't give less about the Relationships at the moment, they all seem so fake. Of course they are not going to be real, but you would expect more Chemistry. At least Hook told them about Neal as fast as possible. I was fearing the worst, but they actually made a smart move with the whole Truth telling this Episode.

I agree with that.

I was really glad that Hook told the others about Neal right away, I was afraid they were going to drag it out as long as possible for some cheap drama. I liked the whole "everyone has to tell the truth to save Neal" thing in this episode.


I liked this episode, I thought it was pretty decent, not one of my favorites though.
Ariel seems ok, she seems like she can be an interesting character(I like that she's able to cross between lands), her backstory was ok(Regina chasing Snow around is really old now).


I liked that Regina got Rumple thinking straight again. I find the Rumple/Pan dynamic interesting. I'm really curious about the history between those two.

I'm really looking forward to next week. :)

I was surprised he did.. Seems Pan is not so on the ball with his reading of hook as he thought.

I'm not too sure it would matter to Pan. He seems to be very patient.

Actually not really. Yeah he waited for Generations for the truest Believer, but only because he had no choice in it. Everything else he seems to be quite Triggerhappy in playing around and messing with People. Of course he knew how their Truths would turn out, but I am pretty sure it is not going to have the same effect he wanted. Except maybe a Rivalry between Hook and Neal, which could be a good thing. At least its a chance to build some non-existent chemistry and conlict to their Relationships.

While I found the Spill-The-Beans Chamber a little convenient, I did like the secrets revealed and I'm especially happy to know that M&M will be angry with Charming next ep(love that kind of stuff).
I am hoping so much that Hook and Emma is not the endgame. I'll quote Moby Dick if I have to.

Regina is getting better(finally!) and her "that's my malevolent imp" was hilarious. The only things that bugged me was her statement that she and Rumple were the most powerful magical beings ever...

Yeah, except when it comes to crossing realms, resurrecting the dead, flying...
Plus they have no idea who even exists in other realms!

... and the fact she's lost all respect for Rumple whatsoever.

Poor Rumplegoldskin. So confused...

So I guess mermaids don't age. When new mermaids are born do they go to a different land so they can grow up. I'm assuming the no age thing is limited to the seas of Neverland.

Regina as Ursula was cool. I just wish the real Ursula had a better look to her. She looked liked a unfinished 3D model.
