    I remember that story, but I never thought that Rose Red and Little Red Riding Hood were the same person.

    90 minutes till show time on the east coast. I know Rumple/Mr. Gold is in this episode, just hope it's enough to make up for the lack of screen time during the last 4 weeks.

    ... and, IIRC, in the original text, the dwarves didn't have cutsey names; however, that hasn't stopped the writers.

    Loved, loved this episode - I didn't want it to end. Any episode where we get mostly FTL, I'm all for it. Can't wait to see where things lead next and I'm impatiently waiting for the big reveal on who "the stranger" is (I've changed my opinion on who I think he is)!

    They're not, but I do think the writers wanted us to make that association. After all, they're playing pretty fast and loose with the stories in general.

    I thought it was cool to make Red Riding Hood into a werewolf, but that certainly wasn't how the original story went.

    Like having Jiminy Cricket in the story? A Disney creation, based on a children's book "Pinocchio" by Carlo Collodi - doing a dwarf intervention, no less.

    While on the subject of the OUaT characters not being strictly Fairy Tale Land denizens, did anyone one else get a "Wizard of Oz" vibe from Austin (and the lemurs)?

    And saying King Midas was a "fairy tale" as well. Rumor has it Jamie Dornan was first chosen to play Robin Hood but they changed him to the Huntsman instead. I don't mind; I love Greek Myths and other stories/legends. I wouldn't mind seeing King Arthur/Lancelot & Guinevere as well.

    Am rewatching it with my kids and am wondering - why did Rumple tell MM in Storybrooke that he's invested (still) in her future? She's already given birth to Emma, so what does he still need her for???

    Plus, I don't recall the writers saying they were specifically going to limit it to actual fairytales. I like that there are other make believe characters. It keeps it interesting and keeps me wondering who the hell I'll see next!


    My husband watches this with me and he has so many questions. I often find myself pausing (thank goodness for DVR) to answer him. Last night I'd had enough. I told him after the show I'd answer all his questions if he'd just shut up for one hour. It worked and after the show, I directed him to this thread. He read the entire thing and didn't ask me anything else so I guess ya'll did the job. Thank you!
    I hate when the cops throw me in the back of the squad car ....like they didn’t hear me call shotgun.

    Well, if it somehow turns out Rumpy's son is Henry's father, that would make both MM and him Henry's grandparents.... Enough of a reason for an investment I'd say

    I thought the most telling line last night was Rumpy: "Evil is isn't born, it's made." Does that mean it can be unmade and there's a shot at redemption for everyone?

    Also, my biggest incorrect assumption of the night....Snow sweetly singing to the blue bird as it gently flew to sit on her finger and all I could think as I rolled my eyes was "Oh my God, how totally Disney" - but then Bam! and she's trying to swat the poor thing out of the house with her broom

    So from the preview am I right that now it will include Alice in Wonderland??? Definitely beyond the realm of fairy tales/myths now!
