post #751 of 1236
I liked the part when Grumpy told Red she had a little "some one" on the corner of her mouth.

Because you saw the preview at the end of last weeks show? Very irritating that the "big reveal" was spoiled a week in advance. (Even though you could see it coming anyway.)

Was the whole cast in this episode besides Pinocchio's father? I really appreciate the how much was thrown in this episode.

I couldn't stop laughing at Mary Marget's storybrooke scene to then transitioning her slicing dudes up like Braveheart.

This episode reminded me of a high school production of Peter Pan that I saw about 40 years ago. Stage direction: if anyone hits you with a sword, fall down.

I agree and disagree at the same time.

I actually believe much of the flashbacks to fairytale-land are intentionally corny and less-violent. With a few exceptions, the fairytale-land stories are generally family friendly without the gore and accuracy you would expect in a real-world story.

It might not be intentional, but I've chosen to believe that it is.

I like how she wiped it off.

I agree... also, the reality is this is an 8 pm show E/P, which means it's aired at 7 pm in about half the country, on Sunday nights. You don't get a time slot that screams "family friendly required" much more than this one.

Unless you're Fox and an animated show, which can get away with quite a bit more due to the nature of the medium.

That was one of the best season finales I have ever seen. Now that the curse is broken and all the Storybrooke people know who they really are, I wonder where next season is headed.

A lot of what I thought would happen, happened...

Curse broken, but just restores people's memories... doesn't take them back to fairytale land.

Queen actually cared for Henry, in spite of herself, and ultimately will be displaced as the bad "guy" of the series.

What did surprise me, though... was that Gold betrayed them before knowing Beauty was still alive. I thought that would be what set him off... I fell for the ruse that he was actually being helpful.

Can anyone tell me what happened after the purple cloud began enveloping the town? My DVD recording cut off.

The queen made that sexy smile face because magic returned. The clock rang at wait for it............ 8 15

You know I still think that Rumpelstiltskin is not necessarily the bad guy here he is just out for himself to find his son. I am sure he has a good reason why he did those things that he did in the finale, and if he wanted to he could of killed Regina but he did not. I am very interested in finding out what happens next they could go many directions with this does the curse reset itself, does everyone keep there memories but magic comes to our world now?(which sounds fricken awesome) or do they go back to where they came from? This was a great finale I thought they would stretch something like this out for at least another season. I hope there is a scene at the beginning of next season where everyone sits down and has a good discussion about what is going on with these characters.

Well no reason for me to watch it now.

Great episode but I'm not sure how I feel about the cliffhanger. The episode felt a bit incomplete. Kinda like it needed 5 more minutes to explain to the viewer what Rumple was up to and for the characters to rally around Emma. Snow, Charming, Emma and Henry needed to have a family moment before the season finished. No?

My suggestion for an alternate ending - Regina says her goodbyes to the recently deceased Henry and kisses him on the forehead. A small breeze and weak magical aftershock blows her hair back. Henry's heart beats for a pulse or two, then dies. Regina becomes aware that Henry is only mostly dead which means he's slightly alive. Regina raises an optimistic eyebrow in hope as she exits the room and Emma enters. Regina watches breathlessly through the glass as Emma bends over to kiss him and ultimately break the curse.

Am I the only one who raised an eyebrow when Rumple tasked Charming to place the golden egg inside Maleficent? That could've gone a completely different direction on cable tv.

I enjoyed the episode and overall enjoyed the show all season. Now that the curse is broken, I'm not sure how interested I'll be in the show next season. The whole point of the show was fairy tale characters who didn't know who they were. Now they do and honestly, I'm not that interested in a story about there journey back to fairy-tale land.

How are they going to have the flashbacks now, if everyone remembers they serve no real purpose? The flashbacks have been my favorite thing about the series.

I guess I missed something because I didn't understand the big deal with the clock moving at the end. I thought they had made a point a number of times through out the season to say that time started moving forward again when Emma showed up, so what's the big deal with the clock moving now?

Um, the characters weren't having flashbacks. The show was telling us two different stories at the same time. I'm sure it will continue to do so.

I enjoyed the finale, but it felt a little rushed. It's always something with me...moving too slow or too rushed. I'm hard to please I guess.

But really, for a town that didn't have magic, there sure was a lot of freakin' magic.
I mean, out of body hearts, magic spinning hats, magic rings, men turning into wood, magic potions inside dragons, etc....Oh yeah, those things were just grandfathered in

If the queen now has her old power back I'm sure we'll get another season of evil being one step ahead of good.....until the next finale.
post #772 of 1236
Yeah if you don't call a freakin' big arse dragon magic IDK what is..

I was expecting the real live woman, I guess she remained a dragon because of the egg..

Wouldn't make a difference inserting the egg in her on cable TV, she has a no nudity contract I think on True Blood.. wouldn't see much of her..

Now that would of been awesome.
Emma goes down there and sees some poor women held prisoner, begging for help. Then Emma sees the prisoners chest glowing and slices her in half!

They didnt show what happened with pinnochio after the curse was lifted or did I miss it?
post #775 of 1236
Seems this ending was written so it would work just as well (with a few minor changes) if the show was not renewed.

Glad it is coming back and I am looking forward to seeing if they can continue the same "magic" that made this season enjoyable.

So was the homage to One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest with the big indian sweeping the floor in the asylum supposed to mean anything or were the writers just goofing around to see if we'd notice?

I figured he's a character from a different kind of fairy tale, ones that haven't yet been addressed on this show.

The curse didn't turn Pinocchio into a boy, and it wasn't responsible for turning him back into a puppet. But no, they haven't shown that yet.

You know, it never occurred to me that she's the only regular on True Blood that hasn't appeared nude. Go figure...
