  1. The Author thing...it was so weird to me that so many characters bought into Regina's whining about someone denying her a happy ending. It seemed obvious that the message was going to be "you write your own happy ending" and it made the other characters look stupid that they never said this to her. If villains don't get happy endings, than stop being a villain! Which only proves to me that Regina was a "dry drunk" sort of villain, not actually reformed. She may have stopped murdering people, but she didn't actually change herself. She was still a narcissist with a giant victim complex, and that's why she was never happy, because she couldn't be. Storybrooke needed a Villains Anonymous chapter, with a strong emphasis on Step 8.

    Because they're eeeeeevil, of course! Of course they want the evil twin! That's, like, the rules.
  3. Ha! Cinderella/Jacinda was just so boring. She and Henry (and their kid) were so boring together. I think they made a mistake trying to set up the two of them as the season's True Love couple á la Snow and Charming. Honestly, Henry had more chemistry with Evil Ivy. This show left me with so many questions. A by-no-means-comprehensive list: Why did no one ever connect the dots about Graham's murder? That still makes me so mad! Why did Charming never punch Neal/Baelfire in the face? Why did no one ever tell Regina to spank her inner moppet and grow up already? Why did Hook end up with backstory where he killed, like, everyone's father? Seriously, what's up with the super-powerful magic ladies forcing men to have sex with them? That's so disturbing, do the writers not see that they're writing rape stories? Why did we spend what felt like a hundred years on that Author business and why did it never make any sense? What's with the idea that being raised by her actual parents would turn badass Emma into a simpering twit? For the ostensible protaganist, why could GrownUp!Henry lift right out of season 7 and not effect the larger plot at all? Also, did they just give up on having the timelines make any sense whatsoever?
  4. Thank you for answering so quick, @Camera One. I never could keep Rapunzel/Tremaine/Victoria's whole story straight, and it's embarrassing to be confused by a show as dumb as this one became. You might be right about them having more flashbacks in mind for Tremaine. I thought it was sudden when she was killed off. I wasn't complaining - I found her intensely boring as a villain - but it felt very abrupt.
  5. I hope this is the right thread for questions, because I have one. Today I re-watched "A Pirate's Life," the second episode (and my favorite) of that mostly-awful last season, and noticed this time around that in the scene where Lady Tremaine de-ages Wish!Hook the two of them clearly allude to having some kind of past together. Was that ever explained? Did it have to do with Rapunzel's/Gothel's/Alice's tower?

    On another show, this would be foreshadowing that their friendship is about to be tested or broken by some kind of betrayal. Not this one though.

    So little of this show sticks in my mind any more...does Laura herself know about Spencer's election tampering? I can't remember. The Laura I grew up watching would have resigned if she knew about it. But then, that Laura also had little use for the mob.

    Happy birthday, @UYI! Here's hoping you had a delicious cake that didn't explode and kill any forgettable people.

    I remain deeply bitter that he has not and will not kill Carly. Deeply bitter.

    Outside Llanview- The Cast in Other Roles

    You're kidding. Blank-eyed, wooden Lola has become awesome? I would have never guessed. She played a confession of murdering her own mother to the father who went to prison for that crime as if reciting a grocery list. Gabi is Will's babymama, yes? So she's kind of a Stacy type (or Kim, if she's fun)? Maybe I should check DOOL out.

    Huh. Is Kassie still on that show? Is it possible that Blair and Dorian will share scenes again? Cramer Women! Because they're Blair and Dorian to me. Not Eve and whoever.

    Of course it's on everyone else to walk on eggshells around Carly and her high-risk pregnancy and not at all on her to avoid stress by, say, not rampaging around like an entitled screechy steamroller, aka being Carly. Gee, we've never seen this before.

    Granted, I try hard not to retain much of Corinthos Family Follies, but Carly and Sonny barely had any time for Morgan when he was alive, right? Mostly they seemed generally exasperated that his nonsense seemed to infringe on their nonsense. This valorizing is absurd. Also absurd is Carly being pregnant. I am genuinely astounded. That is just the dumbest choice.

    If this were a quality soap (cue the derisive laughter) they would recast Lucky and I say that as someone who adored Jonathan Jackson in the role. Lucky's absence is glaring. Word on Elizabeth's gross maternal vibe with Franco and the borderline emotional abusiveness he's exhibited toward her. Of course, this show being this show, I suppose that means it's true love.

    I miss Jax. And Lucky. And AJ. And Dante. It's so hard for me to root for any guys on this show. Those that aren't actively awful are either dull as dirt or never on. Or both. There's Kevin and...shit. Drew, sort of? Curtis is the hottest guy on the show IMO, but I can't say I actually care about anything he does.
