God damn it.
Stupid show, making me feel things.
I’m a career hater. I hate having icky giiiiiiiiirrll feelings. I especially hate believing in the power of true love because it’s much less disappointing to be cynical.
Now, here comes Once Upon A Time, flouncing around believable true love again, after a frustrating, meandering season and bringing a tear to my eye when Charming and Snow met up in a fiery netherworld of doom. I’m not even going to pretend it was dust or something. I teared up at their reunion, OK?
Let’s just blame it on me being away from John for too long, shall we? (Seriously. I’m on week three without him in Florida right now and it sucks. When Snow and Charming tried to embrace, I thought, “I miss my sweet baby.” Icky. Girl. Feelings.)
Other Once Upon A Time Thoughts:
- Emma needs to stop saying, “That’s impossible!” She traveled to Fairytale Land through a hat and her mom is Snow White. Also, she slew an effing dragon in a library’s basement. Everything should be possible to her by now.
- “I wasn’t lying! I was protecting you!” Yeah, I’ve heard that before. Snow White’s maternal instincts really suck.
- Oh, I guess we’ll just blame it on The Curse. Snow is just now trying to be a mom after not knowing she was one for 28 years.
- Rare squid, bottom of the ocean, mermaids. We can now expect to see Captain Nemo and Ariel.
- FAIRY TALE LADIES KICKING ASS! WOOT! Other than making me believe in the power of true love, this is the other thing Show does well: all kinds of ladies, front and center, kicking all kinds of ass in all kinds of ways.
- “I like anything that masks the bitter aftertaste of poison.” Sooooo, that’s a compliment to the cook?
- “Fiery inferno….” Isn’t that redundant? Aren’t all infernos fiery? Like, by nature?
- Everyone is so full of resolve in this episode! It’s like it’s season one again or something.
- Mmmmm…..malt balls.
- I have no idea where that came from.
- Mulan and Sleeping Beauty are in love and I’m not the only one who thinks so. Mulan/Aurora shipping is totally a thing.
- I love how calm and deceptively pleasant Cora is. Regina was always unhinged and gleeful in her evilness, which was fun to watch. But, Cora is clearly the more dangerous of the two. Regina is prone to emotionality while Cora has no sentiment whatsoever.
