While I'm annoyed that the show decided to have Bae become Neal, (I felt it was very anti-climactic?/non-suspenseful/non-twist-worthy), I must say despite this, I *really* enjoyed this episode. Robert Carlyle is amazing! I really felt for Rumple in this episode. I cringed when Rumple injured himself to be there for his son...To me, I can see the honor behind it. Rumple didn't want Bae growing up without him or for Bae to feel abandoned like Rumple's own father did to him....Unfortunately, well it happened anyway, but not in the way one would think. Was he a coward because of the See-er, yes. Did he abandon the army? Yes. But there's something about his decision I still get...
I felt for Emma too. I thought the confrontation with Bae was quite good for what it was for an hour show. I don't think its over yet by a long shot so we shall see.
I bet once the tidbit about Pinocchio/August fending Bae off sinks in, she's going to be mighty pissed at him..
What was the message August showed Bae? I think it was something like "I know who/I know you're father."?
I also felt for her when she was talking with Henry. It's going to take *a lot* for Emma to gain Henry's trust back...(PS-Jared Gilmore definitely grew taller to me. I really noticed it with the outfit he wore in this episode).
You could see the pain in both Rumple's eyes/face in various scenes, as well as Henry's. (Kudos again to Robert Carlyle, and to Jared Gilmore!)
What did Bae say after he got back into the temperate, before they did a close up of Rumple? He said something about not hurting Emma, then was it about the Deal?
I *loved* Charming and Snow trying to figure out the family tree!
And the memory of Rumple, and the See-er foretelling about Henry....Not good.
I'm a little ehh about the casting though. The show's done such a good job so far, so maybe it's me, but I don't think the actor who plays Adult Baelfire looked like Teen Baelfire...Opinions?
I think we saw Hook in the previews for next week, so I assume he's just out cold.
I love the line about him not being able to find his hook...HA!
Oscars, you better be worth preempting "Once" for next week...Just saying.
