If he sits through the show and makes a few jokes, he doesn't hate it.

Can't wait till next week. I'm already bouncing in my seat!
My mom was the same way for a little bit. She eventually understood when I explained to her that the show is giving the back stories of each of the characters. She eventually understood what was going on.

We loved the recap as well. Can someone confirm if the person doing the summary was Sidney aka the Mirror?

I noticed that too and was shocked! Regina didn't have her magic back until after Emma touched her.

Now I'm left wondering two things:

1. Who was the man in the beginning who received the note saying "Broken"? DH and I are wondering if it's Rumple's son or someone else.

2. How on earth is Charming going to find a way to get to Snow and Emma?

I was going to add a few other things but I'm going to hold off in case anyone else hasn't seen it yet.

Can't wait for next week!

Also, when Emma mentioned Jefferson to Regina she looked like she didn't remember him at all. A side effect of the wraith?
Ohhhh, interesting theory! We noticed the hatter reference on the wall as well and wondered if there was any connection. I was also wondering why Regina didn't remember Jefferson. That caught me completely off guard.

We also wondering what happened to August/Pinocchio

I loved last night's episode! Loved the casting of Mulan, is she gorgeous or what? I've seen the actress in other roles but I love her as Mulan! I was bummed that Prince Phillip was "soul sucked" I thought he was adorable. I hope he isn't dead-dead, just soul-sucked-dead and we get to see him again (in flashbacks and real time).

I, too, suspect the dude in the beginning is either Rumple's son, Henry's dad, or both! I'd love to see that play out.

I loved the Charming family reunion. But how weird is it that Emma, Snow, and Charming are all the same age and Henry is calling them Grandma and Grandpa? LOL Thought that was funny. I always liked David better as Charming, it's good to see him with a backbone and mind of his own again.

Loved Belle. Loved Rumple. Love to hate Regina. But most of all I love that my kids, even the teenaged ones, all gather so we can watch the show together. So glad our Sunday tradition is back!

Can't wait to see more!

I also was surprised that Regina didn't know who Jefferson was. Maybe she was just putting on a front for Emma? The again, this show being what it is, I'm sure there's a much bigger explanation.

Grant gets his memory back and now Regina gets her magic. We've been told over and over that true love is the most powerful magic of all. If Emma is the product of true love, imagine all the powers she must have that haven't been discovered yet.

As for the safe haven for the people left in Fairytale world, I wonder if the safe haven is Neverland? I wonder how Rumple will use the favor that he is still owed by Emma? Also, did anyone else notice during the brief blip during the preview of what's yet to come at the end of the show that it looked like Snow steps between Emma and what looks like Regina's mother?

I am in love with this show. So much going on. So many questions. Not enough answers..LOL

Ok, something I don't understand, might have missed it somewhere, but in the re-cap show, when Regina brought her father back through the hat, where is he now? Did she not bring him back to Storybrooke?

Like many others, I have theories about who the guy in NY was. Could be Bae... Could be Henry's dad... My theory is that he is Peter Pan.

We know Hook is in this season. And he is the kind of person that can go anywhere.

And I was wondering if anyone checked on August too.

PS: I loved the defiance Whale had for PC when he wouldn't reveal his identity. Which leads me to believe that he has a different form in the other world.

This confuses me too. I'm assuming when Regina brought her father out of Wonderland, it was before she had to sacrifice him for the curse. She threw his heart in the fire. So, I'm assuming there's another backstory that explains why the Queen of Hearts had Regina's father to begin with. But from what I understand it to be, Regina sacrificed her father for the curse, therefore he's not in our world.

I thought it was fascinating that Whale said that Prince Charming wasn't his prince. So, if everyone in Storybrook (except Emma and August) was from the fairy tale world, why would Whale say that? Is he not from Fairy Tale world?

Talk about a time suck! I've been reading that blog post and the comments for the past half an hour! I loooooove this show.

I too think Bae/Henry's dad (one in the same).

I thought this as well! Do we know yet what is first name is? Cause I'm wondering if it's "Victor"...

I also wondered about the absence of Pinocchio/August. And I, too, thought that the NYC man at the beginning is Bae.

I was a little worried about where they were going to go with this season because they broke the curse so quickly. (I had kind of thought that would be dragged out a little longer) But I really enjoyed the show last night and I"m looking forward to seeing where they take it now. I'm glad they gave us plenty of new things to keep us guessing. My only issue was that DD was a little scared by the wraith and so she didn't enjoy it as much as she usually does. But hopefully next week she won't have that problem.

I like the idea of the mystery man in NY being Bael but who would have sent him the postcard?
