It was the episode we’ve been waiting for – the episode that told us how Jane came to work with the CBI. Among some other things.
So I introduced my co-blogger, Spooky, to ONCE UPON A TIME (actually I nagged her for weeks so that she didn’t have any chance but to watch the show *gg*) and watched the first season with her (again). With shows like OUAT it is usually like this: You watch it for the first time and get the first layer of information. Second time – second layer. And so on. The higher the layer count you reach, the more details you spot, and still you won’t have seen everything. This is what happened to me – and I found some new things, plus I read some new spoilers for upcoming episodes. Continue reading
As much as one loves a show, there will of course always be episodes one doesn’t enjoy as much as most of the others. That doesn’t make a show bad in any way, nor does it do the same to particular episode.
The latest MENTALIST episode was all about Wayne Rigsby. I like Rigsby. But, to me he’s not the most interesting character. And yet was even that episode touching.
This was the episode I’d been waiting for. Oh. So. Much. Ever since I’d read the press release that said it would be a Rumbelle ep, I was totally on edge. And after getting to see and know more and more about Captain Hook, I was even more… hooked.
To be honest, I have no idea where to start. This episode was the definition of awesome. I couldn’t sit still – or keep quiet, for that matter. I jumped up and down, I yelled at the screen, I had my mouth hanging open, I laughed, and I cried. Not necessarily in that order, but… WHAT AN EPISODE!!!
Shoes. That was what it was all about in last Sunday’s MENTALIST. Or at least it was if you leave out the “Crime of the Week” case.
At first, I was about to criticize the lack of Regina and Rumple in the episode, since it seemed to me that an episode without at least one of these two misses this certain excitement and thrill the show usually has with their established goody-baddies.
Well. I was so wrong.
I chose to write all that fandom stuff that goes through my head down here because it is
I read spoilers because I love them, and you may even read details here you haven’t heard about yet if you’re not that intensely reading and researching as I am. So be warned – because I really don’t want to spoil anyone who doesn’t want to be, but I also am not sorry if I do because you didn’t heed my warning.
… or is it? And here they say love at work is always a problem.
The title initially confused me. This sounded a bit like the slogan of something very evil. I don’t know what it reminds me of, but I know that it is something bad.
Well. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that with OUAT, it wasn’t exactly bad. Nevertheless OUAT’s latest episode left me with several questions I assume will be answered not right away, but over time, as they are quite essential, at least to my mind.
But let’s start at the beginning.
The second episode of season five promised to be an interesting one from the very beginning. After all, it had been announced to feature Charlotte – an older Charlotte. Or in other words: Jane’s daughter returns from the dead.
