Once Upon No Progress Whatsoever

Previously . . . things got more and more predictable.  And now we're almost to the point that we can see every last thing coming.

~ And how the crap do two normal people know how to kill magical creatures?  Seriously?  Just how thin are supposed to stretch our disbelief?

~ At least we get some sweet Evil Queen Regina clothes.

~ So is that why Regina is ruling?  She told people that Snow killed the king?

~ Wait . . . did we actually get a question answered?

~ Except for the part where apparently no one in the kingom believes Regina . . . so we're still left wondering how she has any power.

~ Snow and Charming both have good points.  It's really a no-win situation.

~ Of course the random fisher-dude was Regina.

~ Ummmmmmm . . . you're evil, Regina.  Sorry to break it to you.

~ Yes, when they see you kill Snow they will see just how kind you are Regina.  Perfect logic, that.

~ King George . . . is that Abigail's father or Charming's not-father?

~ Oh, who are we kidding.  Like they'd mention anything about Abigail.

~ I really hate the way they won't let Regina have any character development.  I mean, seriously.  How many times has she tried the same thing and had the same result and she just keeps trying it again?  I really want to root for her and see her redeem herself, but they're not only keeping her evil, they're making her look like an idiot.

~ I can't imagine her disguise lasting very long if she keeps acting like the queen in those rags.

~ That was shorter lived than even I expected.

~ And now it's time to play the "who exactly is Hook double-crossing" game.

~ What do you want to bet Tamara set up that crash too?

~ Okay, name one movie or tv show in which the phrase "you can trust me" is NOT a massive red flag.

~ At least someone is acknowledging that August is dead.

~ Operation Cobra?  Holy back-from-the-dead plotline!

~ Man, too bad Snow jumped in.  Just how many times is it going to turn out that she spared Regina in FTL?  This is getting ridiculous.

~ Thank you for finally stating the obvious, Hook.

~ Yeah, destroying Storybrooke will totally put Henry in your camp forever Regina.  See what I mean about the looking like an idiot?

~ Yeah, gonna go ahead and guess that that bracelet thing is a sign that Hook's double-crossing Regina.

~ I thought Emma killed Maleficent?  So is that her . . . reincarnated?  Or someone else?  Regina implied that it was Maleficent, but again, didn't she die about a year ago?  Gah!

~ Also, now I'm curious as to just how much random crap Regina's hiding down there.

~ Wilma?  Seriously?  Holy dumb name, Batman.

~ (apologies to anyone named Wilma.  But it's a really dumb choice.)

~ Okay, I do like how Snow's telling the horse story, especially without mentioning that it was Regina.  Talk about a potential turning point in Regina's story arc.

~ My vote is for Operation Walking Stick.  Or Operation Purloined Letter.

~ Let's just take this moment to acknowledge that now that the stupid writers have killed off August, this show is going to end with Emma and Neal back together.  It's one of those things that's been really obvious.  And really sucky.

~ Okay, I do like the "I taught her that trick" bit.  That was fun.  It's nice to finally have a fun moment again.

~ Too bad it'll never occur to them to look in Greg's room.

~ It's so frustrating not knowing where these flashbacks are in relation to each other in the timeline.

~ See?  See?  There it looks like she's having a change of heart.

~ Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand busted.

~ Dude, just end it already Snow.  People only get so many chances.

~ Called it.

~ Really getting sick of calling it.  Remember how last season we never called anything?  And then this season everyone's calling, like, everything?  And how just now they just confirmed that I called, like three different things?  Dude, what is this, Dora the freaking Explorer?  The hidden details should be, you know, hidden.  Not excruciatingly obvious.

~ What happened here?  Who would do this?  They're making Snow look like a real idiot too.  Come on, who else is there in the town that would take the beans except Regina?

~ Seriously, how the crap did they find a scientific way to block magic?  That is the stupidest, most unbelievable thing yet.

~ I imagine the finale is not going to be nearly as devastating as they want us to believe.

~ You know what's really sad?  I'm not even excited about finally seeing Neverland.  That's how disappointed I've gotten since January.

~ Sooooooooooooooo to sum up - Snow spared Regina about a million times in FTL, which was pretty stupid of her; Regina kept trying to make every like her by killing them, which was incredubly stupid of her; the evil characters all double crossed each other (or attempted to do so) and the good characters are still pretty clueless as to what's going on.  Or even more clueless than it should be possible to be in the case of Snow.  Seriously, WHO ELSE IS THERE TO SUSPECT EXCEPT REGINA?  In other words, nothing really happened.

P. ost  S. cript
So here's a trick I've long wondered about.  I knew Ariel was standing on a platform, but I was never quite sure how the tail disappeared - apparently it's velcro'd on and  supposed to get sucked into a hole . . . but sometimes doesn't, lol.  I love the part where you can see Max stuffing it down instead.  :-)
