Fun back story for the week: At my parents' house, the only reason one would ever own a blender is to feed bum lambs. Seriously. (don't ask) Bad news when you live there and want a milkshake, good news when you don't live there and they've given up on the bum-lambs-as-money-making-venture. So we in inherited the clearly never-again-necessary blender a few years ago . . . and it promptly rusted itself beyond usability last summer as I tried to make some frozen hot chocolate. Heart breaking, let me tell you. Anyway, the blender has finally been replaced and I'm thoroughly enjoying it with a semi-health kick of tons of smoothies (and a few milkshakes). So tonight my drink of choice for our little game is a lovely blueberry-banana smoothie courtesy of pinterest. Yay!
~ Previously: I kind of expected Snow to get her hair back, not gonna lie.
~ Yay, a Grumpy-sode!
~ Why do they need to "prove themselves to the prince"?
~ Well that little mini-seizure can't be good.
~ Why does the town suddenly look like a war zone?
~ PINNOCHIO!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
~ TEAM EMMOCHIO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
~ Regina you have sooooooooooooo not forgotten where you got that hat.
~ Regina calls him Charming, Snow calls him David. So interesting . . .
~ So the Whomping Willow apparently has a cousin.
~ It's almost frightening how good she is at playing evil Regina and not-evil-younger Regina.
~ I wonder what happened before if anyone tried to leave. We never saw anyone actually succeed, you know.
~ He is so not going to have a plan in two hours.
~ Throwing candles in empty fireplaces is a well known way of magically lighting them. :-)
~ I kind of figured Jiminy would try to talk to her.
~ Aawwwwwww, Snow's in her Disney dress! (sort of)
~ I think I like it better all blue like that.
~ Wait . . . last season Snow as an adult still thought Daniel left Regina . . . PLOT HOLE!
~ or . . . psych. Blargh.
~ Betcha Rumplilocks gave her the book. Her last name is Mills, after all.
~ "You need your mommy's help." Ouch.
~ So FTL DOES still exist!! I knew it!!
~ Turning green? Wizard of Oz reference?
~ This Cinderella commercial has me wanting to see what's happening with CinderAshley&Co. I know hers was a pretty minor storyline last season, but I really liked it.
~ Oh, come on. Rumplilocks is not a hard name to say.
~ I really like Regina's dress here. And her hair.
~ Just how much does Rumplilocks know?
~ TOGETHER?!?!?!?!?! What does that mean?!?!?
~ The prince doesn't know him, but David remembers reading Alice in Wonderland. That's gotta be trippy.
~ You know, Rumplilocks, a locked door might make that closed sign a little more effective. :-)
~ Charming has such a cute smile . . . *melt*
~ I wonder is Rumplilocks would lose his memory . . .
~ Well that escalated quickly.
~ Regina doesn't want to use magic and end up like her mother. Now that's irony, right there.
~ Purple eyes . . . I think Regina just turned into an omnivore Twilight vampire . . . lol.
~ "Gramps." Ha! Somewhere out there the tv gods heard my pleas. Too bad Charming didn't hear/react to it. Now if he'll just call Regina grandma . . .
~ I love Ruby.
~ CALL HER GRANDMA HENRY!!! CALL HER GRANDMA!!!!!!!
~ Charming/Hatter showdown = a lot of hot anger. :-)
~ If he's running away shouldn't he have at least shut his door? Very odd that Regina didn't even go after him.
~ Ah, so the Whomping Not-Willow made the trip over too.
~ Just call her grandma already Henry. That'll show her.
~ "I don't want to be you." Now that's ominous considering the last flashback.
~ That is a sparkly dress, but those hip flouncy thingies are slightly ridiculous.
~ Pushing your mother into a mirror/portal which immediately breaks has got to be worse than seven years of bad luck.
~ I'm a little surprised that everyone wants to leave knowing they'll forget everyone.
~ Great speech, Charming!
~ "As we shall do again." Shall is such a good word. It's a shame you don't hear it much outside of fairy tale-ish/Shakespeare-ish stuff.
~ So I didn't mention it earlier, but the shot of the Blue Fairy (who apparently goes by Blue? weird.) reminded me - Whale's crack about are the nuns still nuns or can they date now? First, wouldn't everyone remember that the nuns are fairies and understand that they're still off limits? (at least I think they are.) And could that maybe be a clue about who he is? Except I can't really think of any playboy-type fairy tale characters. I would guess the Wolf in a predator/serial dater/womanizer sort of way if Red hadn't already claimed that role.
~ I love Rumplilocks' FTL voice.
~ "Someday you'll do something for me." I wonder what it is . . . or if she's even done it yet . . .
~ Either this is a trick or she's had quite the little epiphany with that flashback.
~ 98% sure I don't believe the line about wanting to redeem herself.
~ Your mother-in-law asks you to take care of her son, who is also your grandson. Lulz. I'm adding any trippy family moments like that to the drinking game.
~ Bra'tac found Pinnochio!!! Well . . . only sort of it looks like. But I love them both so, YAY!!!
~ Keeping the book . . . make that 98.78% sure the redeeming myself line was crap.
~ CALL HIM GRANDPA HENRY!! CALL HIM GRANDPA!!
~ Well that's not good.
~ Is that Snow's castle in the distance? Looks kind of like it, on the shore and all.
~ Well, hello step-great-great-grandma. You haven't aged a bit.
~ WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And on that note, I suppose we'll all spend the next week wondering how Cora got from the wherever the mirror portal sent her to this corner of . . . well, whatever realm Mulan and Aurora are in. And why she's in the dungeon there.

The awesome side of princess culture. Love it.
