Anu, what did you think of the winter finale?
I seem to like Henry-Regina more than Henry-Emma. Lana did a great job portraying the emotions of a mother and her conflict between changing for the love of her son and thinking about her own advantage by not letting Emma through.
Mr. Gold/ Rumpel was awesome in whatever little bit he was in the episode. lol i liked how he goes "not now dearie" and whips Red across the forest.
Hook was meh as always. But i can't wait to see Mr. Gold bust his ass after the hiatus.
and of course, there's Regina facing Cora again.
I do want to know how Jefferson got away from Wonderland if Cora went with Hook. Did he leave before or after Cora left the Wonderland and how. It would be cool to see Rumpel, Regina and Jefferson team up against Cora.
THAT was my FAV. moment in the promo for Jan...did you see how Mr. Gold thwacked him with his cane?
As for the winter finale...LOL it started off a bit better than the previous epis so I was like oh maybe this will be good...and there were some good bits along the way...Gold was kinda back in Rumple form and knew how to manipulate Regina's weak points once again...the random Belle-Hook meeting just made me think if Belle is going to use her brain once Hook shows up in SB and not get all taken in by his lies.
The most powerful moment of the epi for me was the bit when Henry runs off to Emma and Regina (after having put her own life on the line to listen to Henry and save MM and Emma) is just sitting there watching him reunite with his 'real' family...Lana was BRILLIANT in conveying those emotions there...and I do feel there were some hints in the epi of Regina reverting back to her usual self...cuz she's done MORE than enough to be good now, to do this Henry's way so to speak...and she is basically left alone despite all this...being good didn't leave her with anything either...Gold basically summed it up best at the end of the epi sarcastically saying, "Maybe they'll even invite you over for dinner next time"...
Gold's motivations and true opinions are hazy sometimes, no? LOL it was cute to see him and Regina in an awkward alliance once again but then that point was also driven home by the end of the epi ki just how ALONE they are...especially Regina...Gold still has Belle...and the hope to look for Bae...Regina literally has NO ONE...and the threat of Cora looming large...Cora will know exactly how to get to Regina just when she's at her lowest point...
The Charming family is getting more and more annoying by the minute...I literally wanted to smack them all for blindly parrotting their 'good always wins over evil' line...dude even Disney movies are not this CHILDISH in dialogues
...seriously the cheese was WAY too much on that front...Emma was the only redeeming member of the family to some extent...Snow and Charming toh I'm really not being able to stand nowadays with their over excited goody goody optimism.
I liked the Gold-Emma scene in his shop when he tells her that she is the product of true love...Robert MAKES these scenes powerful...as does Lana cuz honestly the rest of the cast is boring me to death right now with the cheesy crap they enact.
The entire Cora-Hook history was so laughable...lol seriously DUMBEST PIRATE EVER...just give him the award already
...dhabba on the name of all pirates everywhere...they are really not doing him any favors writing wise...very stupidly written character...I'm almost starting to feel sorry for the actor too
Jefferson? HA...OUAT ppl don't have time for Jefferson anytime soon, sweetheart
...Since Hook is oh so awesome
Btw that entire "battle" at the lake was so ROFL-worthy for the unintentional hilarity...haha...kya "fight sequence" tha
