    She was Anastasia.

    I loved him on BBCs Being Human. It is those eyebrows.

    I'm trying to get into this show since I like the other Once Upon a Time but I just don't like Alice! Her accent annoys me, the character annoys me, plus Alice in Wonderland in the books was a little girl. She wan't old enough to have a love interest so I'm having a hard time accepting that twist. I like the original Once Upon a Time much better than the spin-off.

    I do like the other characters on the show, just not Alice herself.

    I just wanted to be fair and say that this show is really growing on me now. I'm still not enamored of Alice, but I really like the plot developments. I especially like how they've added layers of complexity to the Red Queen. Honestly, I felt sympathy for her in this week's episode. I mean, let's be honest. Who wouldn't be tempted by that offer of the king's? The king's offer was legitimate, as opposed to a life of stealing and running away. Even without stealing the jewels, it would have been a life of poverty. So yeah, I hate that she betrayed Will, but I can kind of understand. I hope that doesn't sound terrible.


    On a side note, I also liked last week's episode. I don't feel any sympathy for Jafar, but it was fascinating to see his backstory fleshed out.



    When Anastasia's mother confronted her, were the writers alluding to Cinderella? I thought one of her stepsisters was named Anastasia, and Mother talked about her serving with a bucket.


    Loved the ending. I teared up when RQ told Knave she loved him. I think it was even more poignant because she knows they can't go back to how it was before. Therefore, when she freed him it had more meaning.


    Any speculation on what the old man's secret is? What does RQ hold over WR? Where is the latter leading Jafar?

    I read something interesting about this show.
    It seems it was written as a stand alone 13 episode, 1 season show. If it went really well they had ways of expanding it for future seasons, but at this point it isn't doing well enough for that so they aren't making future plans.
    It's a "one & done."

    Just when I was beginning to like it! Oh, well. I hope they release it on DVD. I'd watch it just for the CGI stuff.


    And the Knave, of course.

    Well, I spent the weekend catching up on this show and one or two others. The show reads better when you can watch 2 or 3 episodes at a time. The most interesting relationship is between Will and Anastasia (The Red Queen) although I like what I see about Alice and her father. Cyrus is also becoming a little more interesting.

    Anyone else think that other prisoner in Jaffar's Tower is his father?
