    Once Upon a Time "Selfless, Brave, and True" Review: Bait and Switch

    To spend a whole hour with characters we barely know felt cheap. I feel like I didn’t get to see OUAT this week.

    • WTF was that?

      This was ten times worst than the worst episode of LOST. Seriously.
    • Didn't care for it

      I do love this show, but I didn't love this episode. I don't like the fact that they keep killing off liked characters and bring in new ones such as Owen and Tamara. Why couldn't August have stayed a grown up, whey did he have to go back to being a child, and possibly reliving all his stupid mistakes. Why couldn't he have gone on as a new and enlightened grown-up with the ability to help his aging father. And don't even get me started on the whole Henry story that appears to have been dropped. Gold used to say he "found" him for Regina, didn't he know it was his grandson. And where is Cinderella, did her prince charming remember who he was, last I remember he was wandering in the woods after she crashed the car trying to go to Boston. Maybe I need to go back and revisit some of the previous seasons in this break and brush up on the story lines. Because I'm more confused than enchanted at the moment. Not to mention no Gold, Hook or Regina this episode. Not the writers best effort in my opinion.moreless

      I loved this episode... Besides the fact that yet again they have removed one of a short list of characters that have any semblance of attractiveness about them. Of course i'm happy that Pinocchio can be happy again, but still...
