ocean met sky and the world drowned
I swear on Emma Swan...
the end of the world, or time
Oh yes, and consdering the producers did want to bring Peter Pan… Good catch! :)
I know! The whole playground/mansion thing from 1.11 still bugs me, but the fact that Emma MAY be playing them makes the episode better, in hindsight.
BTW, I think if you install missing E you can reblog asks. At least, I can and that’s the only thing I’ve installed.
Well, I talked about why I think the whole Emma/Sidney/Regina thing is a mess (from 1.11) here, but actually this latest episode made me think the writers are building up to something.
Some of Emma’s expressions (especially after Sidney tells her he can get phone records) and the fact that they made a point of having Emma repeat “I know when someone is lying” to David, just after Sidney lied to her and she seemingly believed it (instead of having her say to David “I don’t know why, but I feel that I can trust you/that you are a good guy”, for example) - well, those two things made me think that Emma *is* aware Sidney is lying, and she’s playing along to see what his angle is.
Yeah that’s what I’m thinking. I mean, I doubt it’s just as simple as she believes it, it’s suddenly broken, but Emma believing will definitely be a huge step towards it. The producers said so themselves, Emma is the savior, she is the one that can break the curse, no one else. But to break the curse she has to believe first.
Well, it’s possible. But I still don’t believe that’s what will break the curse - it’s like, Emma’s role as the Savior who will bring back the happy endings is… choosing the right guy to kiss? That’s what she does? That’s our heroine? I’m sorry, that would be awful. And I don’t think the writers would do it.
Think about the various ways Emma has weakened the curse already; it hasn’t been by making out with people (well, she made out with Graham, but that’s beside the point), it’s been by saying “hey, you can be better than this. Shape up and BE BETTER”.
That’s what worked with Archie, Ashley, Hansel&Gretel’s father (blanking on his name), even Graham - I mean, yeah, they kissed, but there was also a lot of Emma saying “you’re good, you can be good, you have a heart, be better and break Regina’s hold”.
Ohhh interesting. I admit I’ve never read the book. And I thought the Burton movie was a snooze fest. Is that heresy?
Emma is not Alice. She isn’t the ugly duckling. She isn’t anyone BUT Emma. Emma is Emma and no other character.
Yes, but when Regina went “oh, I just took that money to build a playground”, everyone was like “that’s all right then, YOU ARE SUCH A SAINT REGINA”. But that’s not how it works. You can’t take money from the city without permission. Even if it’s to build something good, you need approval from the council. Now, I can believe the people in Storybrooke under the spell wouldn’t know that (or care about it), but Emma WOULD know about it.
Basically, I would have liked it more (and I think it would have made more sense) if, after Regina shows the plans for the playground, Emma had said “but you still took the money without permission, that’s still illegal/bad!”. The town is under a spell, so they probably wouldn’t have cared, but Emma is not and she shouldn’t have been convinced :/ I don’t know if I’m explaining this right.
Yes! I hope so too. It’s just stupid of Emma to be so trusting, and Emma is NOT stupid. So I hope we’ll find out she knew all along.
I don’t think anything completely un-explainable has happened in front of her yet, so I understand why she’s still skeptical. I mean, Graham had been sick all day, then he whispered something weird, then he died - it’s not so weird that she would think he was hallucinating.
