~ Daddy Charming is in quite the snarky mood.
~ Awwww, and a sweet one. Cute.
~ Rumplilocks reverting to his cursed self begs the question of just how cursed he was to begin with.
~ But with that I suppose we'll probably never really know.
~ Cool intro.
~ Snow, let's be honest. Everything looks good on your husband. (Or not on, as the case may be, lol)
~ And we have our first entry for Charming line of the episode.
~ Dude, Regina is so faking all this.
~ I'm thinking this episode is going to be all about how much I love Charming.
~ For example, Charming is dying to kill Hook for those cracks about his daughter. You can totally see it in his eyes.
~ Giant Hurley . . . is not so giant . . . #confused
~ A world in which Hurley is Tiny is a large world indeed.
~ Quite the rational argument he's making. I wonder what happened to change his mind.
~ Dang, first Chip and now the harp . . . minor characters are falling all over the place these days!
~ Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand look at Tiny grow!
~ Travel size. Heh.
~ I'm not a hat person, but I want Snow's beret.
~ Looks like part of Hurley's change of heart had something to do with Charming's twin.
~ Really intrigued by Belle's Storybrook identity. What was she thinking all that time she was locked up?
~ And Charming makes the connection. Ten points to him. :-)
~ But I called it first.
~ Dang, Not-Charming was a playboy. Bet Josh Dallas had a blast filming this scene(s).
~ Why would one toast so heartily as to leave half the drink on the floor? I've never understood that.
~ See, Not-Charming's girl-toy is oozing with the cleavage in this outfit almost exactly like Belle's from before. Still gratuitous, but not as obnoxious because it fits the little we know of her character thus far.
~ Jabberwock?!?! Girl-toy is Alice?!?!?!?!?!?! Holy crap, she better not be. Alice is to smart to be Not-Charming's girl-toy.
~ Okay, now Jack is a girl? That I can get behind. (also, the oozing boobs fit the character of a girl Jack than an Alice)
~ Clever segue. I wonder how much the
~ So cool to see Rumplilocks bewildered. I hope they really play up the Rumplilocks culture shock the whole time he's out in the world.
~ And Rumplilocks says what we're all thinking about the shoe thing.
~ So it's contact with the shawl that's keeping him Rumplilocks?
~ That had to be traumatizing.
~ And Henry? Is me. I would be after the (not)Cinnabon too.
~ What do you want to bet that's Cora playing Regina?
~ Dude, I have never seen that much traffic in Storybrook. Where's everyone going all the sudden now that Hurley's about?
~ And it all goes wrong in 3 . . . 2 . . .
~ I really like the twist they're giving to Jack and the Beanstalk.
~ It's going to be really interesting wondering whether it's Cora or Regina every time we see Regina.
~ More Alice food. This strikes me as the appropriate time to mention I've always wanted to go to Wonderland just to spend the entire time there eating everything to see what happened.
~ Airport bathroom. So many questionable jokes.
~ And that was the last thing I ever would have guessed.
~ Uh oh. Was that from leaving Storybrook or taking off the shawl?
~ All of these Valentine's commercials would have me going out to buy a bunch of chocolate if I didn't know I was going to have fifty pounds of it handed to me for free in a few days.
~ I was going to say that Hurley's a crappy liar, but then he didn't even try to lie.
~ Okay, the gray bearded giant just called Hurley his brother, but I was totally thinking that was his dad. Now I'm confused.
~ Speaking of . . . where are all the girl giants? Where do giant babies come from?
~ Yeah, I'm not sure I'd believe Charming's story.
~ "Kind of out of town." That's kind of an awesome line. Charming has a run for his money for best line.
~ Charming's name really is David!!!!! I CALLED IT!!!!!!! I CALLED IT PRACTICALLY A YEAR AGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A HUNDRED POINTS TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
~ Also - the bit where Grumpy was trying to figure out Charming/James/David's name? Grumpy wins. Line(s) of the night.
~ (Also: totally backs up my theory that Regina was never as thoroughly evil as Cora or Rumplilocks. A thoroughly evil person would not have given David his name back, notwithstanding the part where no one would have known about the good deed of it.)
~ So the beans can take you to realms other than the giant realms? How exactly does that work?
~ I like your style Snow. Giant's about to die, but you take a moment to make out with your hot prince husband.
~ Depressing . . . and then profound. All awards to the screenwriters!
~ Speaking of awards, a great big one to whoever made the decision to put that lovely shot of Charming's butt in! :-D
~ And it would appear that the Jack fairytale is going to be a one-off.
~ Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand TA DA!! We have a way back to FTL!
~ Love how Charming's all excited and Snow's all conflicted. Things are going to get really interesting if/when they get to the point of actually going back.
~ Maybe they can go back and forth? There's going to be a bunch of people on both sides of the coin, but they're also going to want to stay and touch.
~ Speaking of staying in touch, let me take this moment to register MY OFFICIAL CAPS LOCK RANT ABOUT THE DISTINCT LACK OF AUGUST, ASHLEY, AND KATHERINE IN THIS EPISODE. WHERE THE CRAP ARE THEY, DANGIT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
~ And that all caps rant has just reminded me that they will certainly be no Henry calling Charming and Snow by their appropriate appellations as long as he's out of town. Sad day.
~ Let us drink to the swift return of the possibility of Rule #2's!
~ I love Grumpy.
~ Awww, cute, they gave him a dwarf ax.
~ Wait . . . where did they get a dwarf ax?
~ Okay, humming High Ho is definitely worth a drink. Think we just found rule #6.
~ Real world guy and Belle? File this under things that can't end well.
~ Cut to Emma and Henry crashing on Flight 815 . . . lol . . .
~ Spot on with the more frosting thing, kid. And props on getting the cool mom who'll buy you a whole box of airport priced cinnamon rolls. :-P
~ That . . . was perhaps the least scream inducing ending of an episode that I've ever seen. Dang.
~ Okay, going on the previews I'ma go on record now: I don't want Bae and Neal to be the same person. I wouldn't be surprised if it happened . . . in fact, I'm kind of expecting it, but I'm hoping not.
P. ost S. cript
Fun (barely slightly) related story: for some reason the choir at my high school had a thing for this song. Like, they sang it every few years. Anyway, a year or two after I graduated the Madrigals sang it, and as a joke they all got on the edge of the stage and knelt on their shoes like they were really short. Now it just so happens that one of the girls in the group at the time was(/is) legally considered a midget . . . meaning she's, like, 4'10'' or something right around there. So as soon as they all got down on their knees everyone started yelling for her to stand up, which it quickly became clear was the plan all along because she was put between the two tallest guys and when she did stand up . . . yeah, she was still shorter than them. (side note: saw a picture of her a couple of years ago on facebook holding her daughter who was in a blessing [i.e. Mormon christening] dress. The dress was longer than she [the choir girl/mom, not the baby] was tall.)
In other short news, when we went to Hobbiton five years ago the tour guide told us what the height requirement for hobbits was when they were filming. I don't remember what it was, but Shayla was exactly the maximum height. Not only could she have been a hobbit, she would have been a tall hobbit! :-)
Anyway. It's funny 'cause, like, Hurley's a short giant, you know. Haha, I'm so clever, I bet no one in the whole wide world ever thought of that one before!!!
Sorry. Sometimes I just have to go for the obvious (and bad) joke.
