My daughter's take on that shadow is that it belongs to Peter, but either doesn't like Peter too well or maybe it just wants to be independent. So it does have it's own mind. When Wendy sewed it back onto Peter, it's because it had escaped and Wendy captured it.
Re Neal/Bae/Hook/Emma triangle :lol---first of all, you KNOW when they were roaming around the giants' land that she noticed how hot Hook was--at that point Neal/Bae was not in the picture. 2nd "I'm dating my ex's 'stepdad'"would be nothing on a soap, heck they have I'm sleeping with my ex's (or current's) real dad pretty frequently... or even my ex's kid. And 3rd---the generations are so screwed up in Storybrooke, that nothing seems outlandish--- I mean Emma looks older than her parents to me, and when they are comforting her in a parental way it always looks weird.
All that said, with Emma having just said she loved Neal/Bae and vice versa as he "died" I doubt she's ripe for a romance in the immediate future.
In the original book, Peter loses his shadow when Nana attacks him and sinks her teeth into it. Peter manages to get away, but returns later to claim it, and Wendy sews it on for him. The shadow itself is never given a life of its own; in fact, it says that Mrs. Darling tucked it away into a drawer for safekeeping. I think in the movie the shadow had more life, but only in a playful sense. The only malevolent thing in the book/movie is Capt. Hook.
I have to confess, when Tamara and Greg were oh-so-seriously giving their spiel about The Believers wanting to cleanse the earth of evil magic, I just about died laughing. What is this? The friggin' Da Vinci Code? I kept waiting for an albino monk to run up and stab Regina. :rofl And just where is the Home Office? The Vatican? Mormon headquarters? The Washington Monument? Or is it a government plot? Are we talking the CIA here or the FBI? I think I hear the X-Files theme in the background. :violin
Speaking of which, do the writers know that the Home Office is a British government agency? Just curious.
I swear, if Tamara and Greg remain past this season, then I'm done with this show. I'm sick of them and I want my show back. I'll just throw on the Season 1 episodes and pretend nothing happened after that...
By the way, was that really Greg's dad he dug up? Any thoughts?
If it wasn't for OnDemand, I wouldn't watch more than half of the shows I watch. I can only use my VCR to tape something that I'm watching, so that's not helpful and I can't afford DVR. I can route the cables a different way to tape something on another channel, but it really affects the picture quality, so it's not worth it. I use OnDemand and watch whatever else I've missed online.
I'm all caught up with this show but, honestly, I'm not all that invested in it. As much as I wanted David and Mary Margaret to get together, I'll admit I'm pretty bored with them now. They're so bland.
I hate that Ethan Embry is playing a bad guy. I love him so much and I don't like NOT liking his character.
I had two TV's and two VCR's and that covered everything until Comcast went digital and totally disabled my being able to tape a show and watch something else. How Stupid. Did they really think I was making copies of the TV shows and selling them on EBay? I resolved the issue by buying another TV and getting another VCR. But recently I figured out how to use the On Demand feature but the trouble with that not all the shows I watch are On Demand. I even bought a DVR but one that records on DVDs not a harddrive. That sucks because DVD's don't really record that much and you have to keep buying DVDs. The DVRs with harddrives mean that you have to subscribe to a service again money out of your pocket. You really need to know the TV schedules and what you can watch online. Comcast has made it so expensive that I am tempted to go to Hulu or one of those other services to avoid the cost and crappy service that Comcast provides.
My old bedroom TV needs the converter to watch everything & must tape on the channel watched.
So if you have a new HD TV, you can do this, if not, you need another TV to watch 2.
I do this with just basic free electric-plug-in-the-wall TV. No pay service at all. I do have a dandy HD antenna.
