My Thoughts On: Once Upon a Time S02E08 “Into the Deep”

Hey! If you haven’t seen episode 8 of season 2 of Once Upon a Time, then you might not want to read this!

This episode is about a fire at a disco.

A magical fiery disco that people can visit in their dreams.

Mulan maybe might be a little bit of a lesbian?

Captain Hook somehow pulled out Aurora’s heart, which means that he knows some magic. This means that there are no non-magical villains anymore. This upsets me a little because it was nice that there was a villain that was different than all the rest. Now it’s just like, “Hi! We’re all magical wizards that want more magic so we can magic up the magic!” I guess King George is still a normal-person villain, but, as a king, he still vast resources. I would like to see a sort of grass roots pulled themselves up by their bootstraps type of villain. You know, someone that would actually have to work hard to be villainous. It’s all too easy for our current crop.

I’m still for something to really happen on this show. The characters seem to be running around a whole lot and not really accomplishing much.

Once Upon a Time Catch Up

SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t seen Once Upon a Time episodes 2 through 5, you might not want to read this article.

Due to an illness and server troubles, I haven’t been keeping up with posting as many Once Upon a Time articles as I’d like to. So, here are some little summaries of my thoughts on episodes 2 through 5.

S02E02: We Are Both

Magic smells good!
  • Ugh. They’re making magic analogousness to drugs. So, does that only mean that evil magic is like drugs and good magic is like prescription drugs? Because, no one has any problem with the magic that the fairies use. Seems like a broken aesop to me.
  • Going over the town line means that you lose your fairy tale memories and are only left with your Storybrooke memories. Rumpelstiltskin never had any Storybrooke persona. Would he lose his entire memory or would he gain a Storybrooke persona, if he went over the town line? Also, who went over the town line to get Henry?

S02E03: Lady of the Lake

Emma smells good!
  • Charming’s mother dies needlessly in this episode! It’s a world full of magic! They most definitely could have found something other than the magic lake water to cure Snow White elsewhere.
  • “Hey, Emma, ogres hunt by sound!” Emma: “I’mma fire my gun for no good reason!”
  • An awul lot of the Enchanted Forest seems to exist still. I though most of it was supposed to be a void?

S02E04: The Crocodile

Rumpelstiltskin and Captain Hook smell good!
  • So, Rumpelstiltskin is now the Fairygodmother from Cinderella, the Beast from Beauty and the Beast, the Dark One and the crocodile from Peter Pan. They need to stop making Rumpelstiltskin every character from every book. I mean, I love watching Robert Carlyle chew the scenery, but, seriously, this is getting to be too much.
  • Sexy Captain Hook? EVERYTHING MUST BE SEXY!
  • How did Rumpelstiltskin get such a sexy wife in the first place?

S02E05: The Doctor

Sexy Igor smells good!
  • Regina had a whole vault full of hearts. Why couldn’t Victor Frankenstein just ask for an extra one? Why did he have to trick her out of a heart?
  • Sexy Igor? Well, at least it wasn’t angry teenage Igor.
  • Why isn’t Frankenstein black and white everywhere that he goes? (It’s definitely due to budgetary constraints, but still…)
