    I really really hated Lost so easter egg hunting based on lost stuff is completely meaningless to me.

    Lost was my favorite show, too. I always look for, and frequently find, Lost easter eggs in shows I watch. The character names are an example. Many of the character names in Lost started me doing research and, boy, did I learn a lot in so many disciplines.

    Maybe Rumpy is invested in MM because somehow she/true love can release him from his own curse, reunite him with his son and Belle etc? Maybe he wants his evil unmade, as someone mentioned above.
    Not twisted - that was my first thought when Frederick came on the scene of Kathryn's crash too! But since they were true loves, I'm hoping they're busy shacking up in some cottage, falling in love, instead of the Misery version, which is what I keep telling myself. But who knows - maybe the Evil Queen made him some angry, psycho gym teacher...

    Seeing as how Storybrooke Charming is an annoying drip I wouldn't be surprised if Frederick was made a psycho gym teacher rather than Katherine's true love. I half want to send David back into a coma.

    Same here. I experienced the same feeling of dread followed by ROFL. I also loved the scene right after it where she was ruining the Dwarves' happiness. Again, that was so clever of the writers to contrast this Snow with her Disney version. I wish I were still in college studying literature. We'd have a field day talking about "subverting genre norms of the classic fairy tale."

    And CCL, that was a great point. In Storybook, people's personalities change and true lover don't recognize each other. If that holds true for Frederick and Katherine, then it's not good.

    LOL. That would be hilarious, but wasn't the car empty when he found it? I also think I have a vague memory of someone saying that he was the one who had reported finding the vehicle. (Not that he couldn't have reported it and kidnapped her. )

    Re: Once Upon A Time ABC

    We saw Frederick find the empty car, but that was the last we've seen of him. What happened in the minutes following his discovery? Did he find her wandering aimlessly 100 feet away? As Ellen said above, it's not random that he happened to find her car. Why bother showing that event if Frederick isn't involved, whether it's for good or evil?

    The writers of Lost were beyond well-read. What they pulled together with that show was amazing. I poo-pooed it for the first few seasons. For whatever reason, I wathed the first episode online and I was hooked. I watched something like 3 or 4 seasons with in 2 weeks to get caught up. The first episode of Lost remains the single best tv show I've ever seen.

    OUAT is great but can't compare. Although, I don't think it's supposed to. Similar structure for the audience that liked LOST, but it's light and easy.

    I really do enjoy the show. The storybook concept was pure cheese at the beginning and the production value was a bit questionable (some of the scenes looked like they could be filmed in my back yard), but I think as the show is gaining steam, production is getting better.

    I'm really glad to have the show to look forward to and I think it gets better each week.
