Henry never stepped foot in fariytale world so mabey he's mortal although there's a 5% possibility Henry is actually Neo.

Emma's character would need to be a very short story. She was born, cried a little, moved to our world, cried a lot. The end.
Henry's, even shorter. He will be born in another land where there is no magic. The end.

I sure noticed the Blue Fairy's stipper top. It looked like a good sneeze would give us a heck of a show.

Rumple's recent performances on Once make me regret the cancellation of Stargate Universe even more. Robert Carlyle kills the role of deceptive ally, borderline villian.

Yes... but she doesn't have to be any particular character! That's where you are over-reaching.

The flashbacks have introduced several new characters to fairytale land that have no traditional backstory. The lady supposed to marry Prince Charming, the guy she really loved.. heck even the fact that Prince Charming isn't really the original Charming... just his twin!

The point is... Henry hasn't set foot in fairytale land, so he isn't anybody. Emma was barely born before she was whisked away... so she can't be any known character either.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

I agree. Though I think if she was to be a known character, it would be a new version of Rose Red.

Definitely not Goldilocks.

This really was a good episode. Lived up to the show's potential.

Kaboom.

Um... I'd be ok with a shower scene

Leaving in the middle of the night means there's only 2 options... IHOP or Waffle House. I going with IHOP since they're in Maine. I do some of my best scheming over a Colorado omelette and a stack of strawberry pancakes.

Yeah the Fairy was hot, too bad there wasn't a close up shot to see her "de-tails"

Her Dress seemed also short..

Oceanic is the official airline of Hollywood. It's been used quite a few times over the years as a stand-in for real airlines when something bad happens to the plane.

Too bad the MPAA heads weren't on one when it crashed in one of their movies.
Then we could have our hands untied.

Abundant OTA television is what makes this country different from all others. Lets keep it this way.
The Internet is no place for streaming video.

How did "fighting for your son" turn into "abducting him in the middle of the night"? Not to mention abandoning a job as an elected official.

And just when you thought Charming couldn't get any worse, he goes and becomes best friends with the woman who framed his true love for murder.

I'm still loving the fairytale land half of the story, but I'm tired of Storeybrook.

Highly doubtful since she doesn't have control of any magic of her own. Looks like Emma and Pinno. can because they came to this world through the wardrobe and not from the curse. The curse is keeping all of them there, Emma and Pinno. are free to go because they are outside the curses influence.

I have no friggin' idea as to why Once Upon a Time is getting the Blu-ray treatment while no other show is.

Here is the info at TV Shows on DVD

The other shows announced for release were Body of Proof, Castle, Desperate Housewives, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice and Revenge.

Stupid thing is that I think that Revenge has higher ratings than Once Upon a Time. Obviously not the right demographic for them to try and sell Blu-rays.

Of the seven shows announced for release, four of them I watch. Of those four, only one will get my money, Once Upon a Time. No Blu-ray, no sale.

"What do you say Beckett. Wanna have a baby?" - Castle to Det. Beckett
"How Long have I been gone?" Alexis after arriving home and seeing Castle and Beckett w/ the baby - Castle - 11/25/13

Maybe they figured out that it's genre shows that sell the best on Blu-ray, because they have the most rewatchability and audiences that like to obsessively go over them with a fine-toothed comb.

It's unlikely I'd buy the BD .. however, it hopefully will have some excellent PQ / SQ ..

Oddball: Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

I thought the episode was ok. A lot of characters are acting weird and the situation was somewhat forced. However, it is a good set up.

Jerry. Just remember. Its not a lie . . . if you believe it. GC

The moment Regina started baking I knew where this was heading.

You can never judge a show by its pilot episode or the half season following it.

Yeah she's hot, but would you take a bite out of the apple for her?

I'm still thinking in no matter what the Queen is miles hotter than Snow... but we should know by now it's not about the beauty, it's revenge because the Queen's love got killed by her mother on snow's fault... (although how can you blame a child for that...)

RIP Mom, we always love you 8/18/13
