    Re: Once Upon A Time ABC

    I think they are seeing each other! Aurora described a "he" in her dream, while Henry described a "she"!

    I thought that was a nice little twist and it must have something to do with each of them being awoken from the sleeping curse recently! Can't wait to see that explained!

    I hope I didn't sound critical. Just didn't think we needed to continue with the spoiler tags.

    I was actually wondering if Snow wasn't having the same nightmare. Charming looked alarmed or concerned when Henry was telling him about it - as if he'd heard it before. I think Snow had a change of expression on her face when Aurora was telling her about it, too.

    As far as Neal's true identity goes, one good reason for it to be Bae is because it seems like the storyline is headed towards some kind of climax with Gold's search for his son and Hook wanting to get revenge on Rumpy. And Emma is less than pleased with Gold. So it would be very dramatic for Emma to reunite (in some sense) with Neal, as Neal/Bae (if it is Bae) reunites with Rumpy. Emma would see that other side of Rumpy/Gold that we all know and love, and she would probably protect him from Hook. I have not read anything about this - just speculation on my part.

    You're right! I'd forgotten that although it was short, Henry was under a sleeping curse recently too.

    I also did not notice the exchange of "he" and "she" with Henry & Aurora. So maybe this nightmare is only shared between the two of them. And they wouldn't know each other, so that's why they wouldn't be able to name who they were looking at.

    Oh no! You didn't sound critical at all! Just wanted to say why I had originally done it!

    Okay, when you put it like that, I can see it work a little more if he is Bae...I don't know though, that's just not how I pictured grown up Bae..but of course he did come to this world alone as a teenager, I mean a thief seems like something he would likely become to survive here.

    I didn't see Emma as a thief in her teenage years either. But she may have just been trying to survive too. Soulmates?

    I was reading recaps. One thing pointed out that puts Neal on the side of the White Rabbit is that he stole a bunch of watches - and watches were in his NY apartment when we first saw him in the first episode. It still seems a little icky for the White Rabbit to be Henry's father... The fact that he stole watches might be totally coincidental.

    And on the sentimental side, another thing that was in Neal's apartment was the dreamcatcher that was in the hotel he and Emma shared. Awwww!

    Another recap I read had a funny line that Looney Tunes fans will appreciate.

    Regarding the time the giant picked up Emma, the writer wrote "I will name her George, and I will hug her and pet her and squeeze her."

    I can see Neal being Bae for a couple of reasons. One, Neal/Bael(fire) are similar. Also, he didn't look all that surprised when August started talking about Emma having a "destiny," and magic. And that was before he saw whatever was in the box. I would think any normal person, when confronted as Neal was, would be far more skeptical and at least come up with a "Dude, you know you sound crazy, right?" Plus, he took one look in the box and was convinced. No look of shock, no questions, just acceptance. I think too, they could explain the age thing. We know Bael jumped into another land...but we don't know which one. Perhaps he spent some time in Neverland, or someplace else where he didn't age and was somehow able to jump into "the real world" at a later date

    And I'm totally intrigued by the dream thing too! I'm with you guys who think Henry and Aurora saw each other. And I didn't even consider that Snow might have had the same nightmare...but I like it! My guess is it's some sort of premonition...one that probably will somehow serve as a cliff hanger or something as we head into season 3

    As soon as something airs on the East coast, we don't consider it a spoiler. Posters who want to avoid spoilers just need to stay out of the thread until they are able to watch the episode. You don't need the tags for speculation

    Re: Once Upon A Time ABC

    Funny thing is that a number of the male characters look similar to me. I thought for a time that Captain Hook and Henry's real world father might be the same. One reason was the clocks in that first early glimpse of him and another was the, "have you ever been in love," theme they were discussing. There seemed to be some parallels there, but I know that's wrong because Hook and Henry's father are played by two different actors.

    The next episode - Ruby-centric - looks entertaining.

    I have no trouble whatsoever telling those 2 apart.
    I didn't find Henry's father all that attractive, but Hook on the other hand downright stunning!
