Oh, christ. Rumpy has Mjolnir in his Cabinet of Doom. The Marvel-Disney line has been fully crossed and there’s no going back.
And it wasn’t even subtle. I suppose it couldn’t have been, though. Thor 2: The Dark World opens in a couple weeks and Disney has to remind everyone as frequently as possible, via as many modes as possible.
So, we have Thor’s hammer on Once Upon A Time. You know, if Disney really wanted to get me in the theater for Thor 2, they’d find a way to get Tom Hiddleston on the show. Preferably mostly naked.
Other OUAT Thoughts:
- I want to go on a pub crawl with Tinkerbell.
- “You got big for no reason.” THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID.
- The Aerodynamically Unsound Fairy is a real buzz kill. Also, her skirt is stupid. Why are there streamers hanging from the underside? WHY?
- “My name’s not Green, It’s Tinkerbell….” The “mutha****er” is silent.
- Henry tried to shoot Peter Pan with a poison arrow? WHAT?
- I see where this is going: Henry, The Truest Believer, will have a choice: save magic or save his family. The constant tragedy of growing up.
- I’m really upset that Mulan and Sleeping Beauty are breaking up. I know they were both in love with Prince Whosit, but they’re so much better as a Thelma & Louise type of duo. And now that’s over because you can’t drive your car over a cliff with a baby on board.
Lastly, I’m a bit…..ahhhh….perturbed at this True Love! turn of events with Regina, as if The Right Guy! would solve all of her problems.
Yeahhhhh…..been there, done that. The Right Guy doesn’t solve a girl’s mommy issues. You know what does? Therapy.
And that’s what Regina has, possibly even more than grief for her lost stable boy: mommy issues. She banished Cora to a far off land but, as many of us who’ve done the same have discovered, that didn’t fix the problems Cora created within Regina.
There are so many other things Tinkerbell could’ve suggested to help Regina. For example:
- “You need a hobby.”
- “You need a puppy.”
- “You need to do some charitable work. There’s a lot of poverty in your kingdom.”
But, no. Tink’s advice was, “You need love! So, here’s a tattooed dude in a pub! Go get him!”
The thing is, I get why Regina didn’t go inside the pub. She’d gotten used to the rage. She felt like she was betraying her dead stable boy. She’d never been happy and the idea of feeling differently was terrifying. As broken as she is, running away was the only thing Regina could’ve done. I don’t feel like she wasted an opportunity.
Being a fairy tale show, Once Upon A Time has gone down the True Love road frequently, but never as a solution to problems. This change bothers me. I’m also bothered at the assertion that Regina, by not going inside the pub, ruined Robin Hood’s life.
First off, no. Second, NO. Regina gets blamed for everything. Now she’s getting blamed for ruining the life of some guy she never knew because her mom screwed her up so badly that she ran away from happiness? COME ON.
