Barbara Hershey deserves an Emmy just for how irritated she plays Cora dealing with modern technology.
“The Queen is Dead” shines a big blinding light on that unnuanced concept of morality, forcing these two women to defend their stances on what constitutes “good” and finally, finally smudging the lines of Once Upon A Time‘s black and white world.
That was why Emma Swan was so revolutionary early on. She was that bit of gray stuck between the good and evil. She understood and empathized with Regina and Snow’s altruism freaked her out a little. Unfortunately this season has seen her go from this pretty fantastic surly fourteen year old boy in Jennifer Morrison’s body to a caboose on the the plot train."

Over Emilie de Ravin’s character Belle wearing a short, sequined dress in the episode they’re currently shooting. The title of the episode is “Lacey” and there is some speculation that this is Belle’s Storybrooke name.
Morrison in particular has had her character sidelined all season. Emma’s been there, but she’s been little more than a plot device disallowed to have emotions beyond what a script demands. She hasn’t been organic in quite a while and last night she came roaring back.This was the badass pragmatist bounty hunter who is horrified at the idea of responsibility or magic but desperately wants a family and a son and some measure of “happiness.” That woman who made a wish on a candle and then gave Regina a fragile smile as she explained it.
The Storybrooke world wasn’t much better off. Everyone was yelling like that made a difference and then they all debated letting ETHAN EMBRY die which is unforgivable and then they forced Frankenwhale to fix him and he ran out of the room and Snow was like, “Maybe we should have sobered him up first?”
If I were the sort of person to head desk at every stupid decision a person made on this show I would have had a concussion after this episode.
No Henry, you did not know. Please go up a couple of gifs to that armory you were constructing out of Crayola.
Like I’m not asking for a Parenthood level drama of storytelling as far as Henry goes. He doesn’t need to be THAT well developed (though it would be nice) but please for the love of Pete stop just putting the words you want in his mouth. Give him some sort of characterization beyond “Kid, wants a sword and horse, likes one mom more than the other.”
At this point Pongo’s better written.
The moment when the Evil Queen invented the soap opera stare.
Guys. I’m kind of obsessed with Jennifer Morrison’s ‘bewildered and stuck in a fantasy world’ face.
brb writing a series where the male characters exist only to die and motivate the women
And that’s why OUAT is the best.
cracking up so much cause of this, i know its old but its the best thing ever
I had to go to the bathroom but I was like “let’s watch this first” and then I accidentally peed myself a little, but it made room in my bladder so I could have time to reblog.
