  • Great episode about Ruby but Rumpy and Henry moment was the best!

    This was a great episode of Once but not the best. I like Ruby but sometimes I feel the actress tries too hard on the crying scenes. Other than that she was good. I still want to see more interaction between Ruby and Rumpy. I feel like there could be a story there if not in the past then here in Storybrooke. What if Ruby's Peter from Peter and the Wolf was the same as Peter Pan? It doesn't go along with Bae being Peter Pan because of the time lines but if he somehow was Peter Pan and Ruby killed him (Bae/Peter Pan) then that would be an interesting confrontation between Ruby and Rumpy in Storybrooke. Of course now that Ruby is in Storybrooke the writers had to introduce the "control the wolf" scenario. Guess they don't want a wild wolf running loose in town. Lets have her running loose in the forest so a hunter can shoot her. Rumpy, Regina, and Henry moment trying to figure out why Henry has a burn on his hand after his strange dream was a cute scene. I like how it is portrayed. Wasn't it just lovely watching how Rumpy handled the situation with Henry. He turned all his malice onto Regina but care and concern (well as far as Rumpy is willing to show of course) was projected completely onto Henry. Regina's concern when Rumpy gives Henry a charm to control his dreams that everything comes with a price was very telling. If this was the Queen he was dealing with dire consequences but since we are dealing with Henry Rumpy takes a softer approach and actually gives him the charm with no strings attached. Well, he said "this one's on me". Hmm. I love how he treats Henry. Maybe he reminds him of his own son Bae (that could be a reason for that if a certain fellow turns out to be Bae) but I'm not sure about the "price" thing. Does that mean Rumpy will take the heat or problems that come along with this charm? Does it mean anything? Will this charm come with a price for Henry no matter what and it is totally out of Rumpy's control? Hardly anything is out of his control but remember the borderline! That was a surprise by Rumpy so anything could or could not happen! Love that Henry tried to calm Aurora down in his dream and unknowingly reached out to Snow and Emma through her! It this a possible way home or just a freaky walkie talkie? Will have to wait and see.
