Previously: Charming was hot, Regina was conflicted, and I decided I refuse to believe Lancelot is actually dead. Cora's totally lying and she's got him hidden somewhere.
~ What is up with this rivalry or whatever between Aurora and Snow? I hope we see an explanation for that eventually.
~ Cora ripped out/powderized all those hearts? I think that means we just chug the whole drink now and get a new one.
~ Ummmmm . . . hello Hook.
~ That was an awesome punch.
~ I'm not sure it was technically deserved though. But there are not many things Charming can't get away with in my book.
~ So Regina's going through withdrawal? I like . . .
~ If FTL isn't Whale's land, then what is Whale doing in Storybrook?
~ She brought who she wanted? Intriguing . . .
~ What is a unicorn doing that close Rumplilocks? No way is he a young maiden.
~ Attempt at powderizing a heart = take a sip?
~ Dead but frozen? Like Uncle Walt beneath the castle? Lol.
~ CALL HIM GRANDPA HENRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
~ Again, what are they mining?
~ It appears we have a missing body . . . I'm thinking maybe Daniel is Whale's brother?
~ Wait, what? Jefferson? Why are you here?
~ I would take a much bigger pile of gold, personally. Seeing as Rumplilocks can just spin more anytime.
~ I'm not surprised Regina forgot she was the queen. I kind of had myself.
~Wreck-It Ralph seriously looks really cute.
~ Dude, what is Hook's deal? Quite the fake fall from grace he's playing at.
~ I see Emma's learned about FTL appropriate weapons.
~ "Off we shall go to see the wizard"? I thought Jefferson was from Wonderland, not Oz.
~ Frankenstein. Called it! Of course, it was pretty obvious after last week's promo.
~ Wonderland - I like. Neverland - I like. Oz - I'm okay with. Frankenstein . . . I really don't know that I like it. I mean, Frankenstein is based in our world where all the others are . . . you know, in their own land.
~ Is this before or after she killed the king? Because I fail to see a point in bringing Danial back if she's still married to the king. Unless, I suppose, they allow divorce in FTL.
~ Who's heart got used? And what do you want to bet Regina has to kill Monster-Daniel? (Maniel? Donster?)
~ CHARLIE BROWN IS ON WEDNESDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
~ Why is Jefferson tagging along to get the heart?
~ Holy motherlode of hearts Batman.
~ I think we need to take a drink for sheer powderizing potential.
~ "You have hearts here?!" Charming line of the week. Not as good as the others, but he just as THE best reactions to everything.
~ Did Regina just call him David? She called him Charming last time.
~ Should have seen that coming. Henry's going to get to try out those sword skills sooner than he thought.
~ These Chanel No. Pitt commercials are just getting weirder.
~ Another Hook-ish shout-out to Captain Sparrow. I love it.
~ An enchanted compass? That's taking a little too much from Pirates, no?
~ Loved the argument between Charming and Regina. Talk about brilliant casting.
~ What land is Frankenstein supposed to be from anyway?
~ Soooooooooo . . . Regina's been collecting hearts all this time in hopes that one of them will be strong enough to bring Daniel back?
~ The one that got used appears to have been a little too strong.
~ Yeah, saw that whole "let me go" thing coming, didn't we?
~ What did he say? Love again?
~ So this whole show happened because she couldn't let go of Daniel in the first place and now she just vanishes him like that? Not sure how I feel about that . . .
~ Grilled onions? McDonald's, you have found my weakness!
~ Wait. Beanstalk? What?
~ Does Regina have any non-mayoral clothes? I'd love to see her in something more casual.
~ Rule 4 - DRINK!
~ I love how Jiminy Cricket is totally embracing his Storybrook identity.
~ Waaaaaaaaaait . . . holy double cross Batman!
~ Did NOT see that coming.
~ Who's heart did Rumplilocks just give him?!?!
~ Rule 3 - DRINK! (close enough)
~ Okay, that "charge an arm and a leg" line was seriously genius.
~ I love how they haven't called Frankenstein by his actual name this whole time and now Rumplilocks calls him Victor . . . since it's not necessarily common knowledge that that really is his first name. Nicely done.
~ And of course we had to use the "it's alive" line.
~ That's it?
~ The fact that Hurley is the giant makes me happier than it probably should.
Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm . . . anyone else a little underwhelmed this week? I feel like they tried to hard to make an awesome Halloween episode and in the process lost sight of what made for an awesome Once Upon a Time episode in general. And I can't help but wonder if the writers knew from the beginning that Whale was Frankenstein or if they decided to go with that in order to do a Halloween episode. And I'm not really sure which version I like less. Hopefully things get back on track next week with the Emma back story.

Never gets old . . . except on the days where Charlie Brown is the GPOY to end all GPOYs.
