  • it's official this show is *DEAD* this shouldn't be called once....

    1.0
    it should be call what it is. LOST 5.0 except not a very good or inspired one. once upon a time can officially join all the dead scifi shows that try to be lost but could never touch . once is now in the list with Alcatraz, flashforward, that unmemorable nbc show with the kid and the plane and the memories see I even forgot the name. unmemorable! rehash are some of the proper terms.



    once was only any good in season 1. season 2 I was in at the beginning then it dragged. and now season 3 what a joke.



    the biggest joke is that this is LOST! A mediocre one at that.



    does this sound familiar.



    season 1 it ends with them leaving their land and going back to fairytale land. from a well a magical spell is released and it ends with not knowing what's going to happen. aka the hatch. and what happens on season 2.... oh they have to go back. THEY HAVE TO GO BACK! does that classic plot line or line sound familiar! but what really pisses me off is what just happen in the latest episode. so they leave story brook and it cuts to someone going around doing house stuff cooking all in the meantime playing music then someone knocks on the door everything stops and its jack looking into the hatch with lock, even Juliet in the others camp... I mean its captain hook telling emma she needs to remember. remember wait like that show where they left the island and they focused on its last season about remembering their previous life and how their memories were rewritten to forget their life on the island. wait i'm I talking about once upon a time or lost!



    the writer for this show which obviously were writers for that other show needs to remember. remember! that this isn't lost.



    I could really give so many examples. but to carbon copy a whole scene worst whole storylines from lost is just lazy.moreless
  • THE WAIT'S TOO LONG!!!

    10
    3 months? Too long the wait! Some fans will lose interest by then! They should release it sooner. An adrenaline rush from a big, "YOUR FAMILY IS IN SERIOUS DANGER!!", won't last 3 months! Take me for example, my cousin was too lazy to download season 2 (SEASON 2 FOR GOD'S SAKES) of doctor who for me. Now I've lost interest. And it wasn't even left on a cliffhanger! Take my advice, whoever the heck is in charge, bring it back now! Before you lose a serious amount of fans!

    . The episode was quite good actuallymoreless
  • OMG best mid-season finale ever...

    10
    Bring on March - 3 months is too long to wait.

    Loved this episode - everyone finally forgave each other or reconnected with someone important.

    Devastated by this episode also - a bit like when Regina killed the huntsman and taking his heart (way too early - he should have been in the entire series) - this episode left me sad also. Rumple's decision at the end proved he was no longer a coward. Bell's dropping to the ground in devastation was amazing - their facial expressions and the tears in their eyes when they were all frozen by Pan's spell - OMG left me very teared up.

    Regina's sacrifice at the end, was her redemption.

    Hook's kiss with Emma - hoping it would bring back her memories was HILARIOUS...

    Best episodemoreless

    The best episode of season 3! Finally the Peter Pan's plot is over! And I love the way how it ends... So exciting!

    I can't wait for March!
  • NO! Please! March?

    March? They can't do that to me! I can't wait, I thought it'll be one of these middle-season episodes, but they changed the whole thing. I was watching this episode numb, I can't believe it. Rumple, we hope to see you again. You're the best! AMAZING!

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Trivia: Behind the opening title, Emma's Volkswagen is visible through green mist.

    • When Pan freezes the group on the street, Hook is initially several feet to the side of Belle. However, in subsequent shots he is standing much closer to her and almost immediately behind her.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Blue Fairy: Good luck, Snow. Have faith.
      Snow: That's easy to say when you have magic wings and a wand.

    • Tinker Bell: I thought you'd only risk your life for love or revenge?
      Hook: One other important thing--me.

    • Mary Margaret: And do you know what I saw when I looked inside? Hope.
      Henry: Looks like fairy tales to me.
      Mary Margaret: nd what exactly do you think fairy tales are? They are a reminder that our lives will get better if we just hold onto hope. Your happy ending may not be what you expect, but that is what will make it so special.

    • Malcolm: You can stop this. Remove the dagger. We can start over. We can have a happy ending.
      Gold: Ah, but I'm a villain. And villains don't get happy endings.

    • Hook: His curse remains. Can you stop it? Or should we all start preparing our souls. 'Cause mine's going to take some time.

    • Regina: Henry, I was wrong, too. It wasn't your fault. It's mine. I cast the curse out of vengeance. And I'm... I'm the villain. You heard Mr. Gold. Villains don't get happy endings.
      Henry: You're not a villain. You're my mom.

    • Hook: It's quite a vessel you captain there, Swan. There's not a day will go by I won't think of you.
      Emma: Good.
