Hello dear Oncers it's time again for that ランダム girl's opinions that nobody likes to read (Jk....i hope). I wasn't sure whether to make an 記事 on just the a. finale, B. season 3 B ( ha ha see what i did there?) または C. the entire season as a whole . I decided to go with C and before we get into Elsa, Regina and Robin, time travel and all that other good stuff from the finale let's take us back to Neverland way back in September.
So maybe i'm going to backtrack just a little before S3's start to a bit about me as a Oncer's history (this will have a purpose i promise). I watched the entire first season on dvd when S2 was airing and finished about when Cora and Regina were destroying Storbrooke and picked up from there. Yes i knew everything that was going on because of the lovely internet and あなた guys and i have watched season 2 in it's entirety (thank god for Netflix right?). I wasn't really that into the fandom at the time and just knew Zanhar1 so when S3 started not only was i interested in this creepy dark version of Peter Pan but it was also the first time i was really joining into the fandom with あなた guys which is a pretty big deal for me and why i have such fond memories of the opening.
Neverland (Season 3 A):
Okay so this had one amazing start. I loved how we knew little to nothing about what Neverland would be like and the whole episode was like a horror movie. I unlike some people from what i understand was completely thrown off によって Peter Pan being the kid who offered to help Henry. あなた see i didn't think Pan would actually have a human physical form and would just be a shadow. I suppose i could talk about him for a while but seriously あなた guys know what i think: Robbie Kay was one of the best actors this 表示する ever had in my opinion and made me hopeful the character would be awesome..then he turned out to be Rumple's dad and....yeah downhill from there i think i've 投稿されました this about a million times. I get that not every villain can be complex and sympathetic but give at least something for us to latch onto . Seriously i thought it was going to be about a orphan who grew to hate society but this was just....disturbing.
A huge problem i had with this arc and the 表示する in general now that i think about it is this: new. characters. don't. mean. anything. The darlings should have been central to this and there were so many awesome theories about them and how they would in cooperate into the story and they were kind of just plot devices. I would have loved an evil Wendy think about it: a sweet Tinkerbell, good captain hook, evil Peter pan with crazy ロスト boys......wouldn't it make sense for them to be some kind of epic evil team? sigh the world will never know. Also Felix....seriously so much could have been done with him または Tamara even and it's like "Nope there just here to be here even though we hint they're may be some very interesting stories with them". Well at least we can call him によって kmy made up nickname "The spear carrying plot device Pan fanboy"
Two もっと見る quick little things that annoyed me: the 愛 三角形 was almost unbearable at times. Seriously it made me ticked at both Hook and Neal and downgraded Emma a little bit. Another thing was: those two Snowing flashbacks. The one in "Lost girl" especially was so painful because i didn't care one bit about this stupid story with them and wanted to be back on Neverland where the good stuff was happening. This episode should have had an Emma flashback to her childhood in the foster system because that's what the whole story basically boiled down to and was one of the best moments from her i've seen. i didn't need to know Regina hated Snow and the Charming's loved each other i already knew that!
So what did i like about season 3 A besides Robbie Kay's 芝居 and the Emma confession of loneliness? The suspense. Oh boy i don't know if it was because this was the first season i was watching when it was airing from the very beginning but yeah i loved the mystery. We were in a place we'd never been before with danger everywhere and didn't know what was going to go down または who Pan really was. The other great thing was The Nevenger's. I loved seeing The charming's work with Hook, Regina and Rumple later on. The banter and the polar opposite morals made for great character moments and in general why i think Neverland almost helped everyone in the end (didn't expect THAT did あなた Pan?). Also Rumple's character was the strongest he's ever been his abandonment によって his father was really the final missing piece to the puzzle of his darkness. I watch the scene where he kills Milah and let's Bae/Neal go through the portal in a new light now sort of because of how it relates to his childhood.
Tink was amazing 愛 the sass and the fact that she stood up for herself was great. I hope she becomes もっと見る prevalent in season 4.
And just added this in here now but: ムーラン having a crush on Aurora was a very interesting twist. I enjoy the interactions between her and Aurora great so the fact that it's half canon is kind of cool.
To sum up Season 3 A was great even though it had some weird and bad parts to it. Plus Save Henry and Going ホーム were two of the best episodes in the series just saying .
Oz (Season 3 B): Well after a painstakingly long wait after a nail biting mid season finale we finally came back with Emma and Henry in NYC under a fake memory spell and everyone else in the 魔法にかけられて forest. I remember being so impressed によって this episode for some big reasons:
1. Emma's character took a turn for the amazing this episode and in my opinion stayed that was the entire 秒 half of the season. Didn't care for her in S2 she was just kind of bleh Season 3 A she felt like her old self again taking charge and remember i 発言しました my お気に入り Emma moment was her confession about the foster system but she wasn't focused on to much and the 愛 三角形 thing bored me. But starting from "New York city serenade?" yeah she put on that red ジャケット and i knew she was back.,
2. Loved Outlaw クイーン finally meeting and Snow and Regina's talk.
3. Hook just Hook was hilarious in that episode.
4. Zelena's entrance was amazing.
Okay so that's just the Season 3 B premiere what did i think when everyone came back to storbrooke and a bunch of memories weren't there? eh for some reason i didn't feel that much suspense and can honestly say the entire Oz arc wasn't that nail biting または anything but that doesn't mean it wasn't good. I 愛 Outlaw クイーン as mentioned and the oodles and oodles of character development for Regina was undoubtedly one of the best parts of this arc. I also was sure after a while i shipped Captain 白鳥, スワン i was on the fence and didn't really care to much before.
As for Neal dying what can i say but: feels. He was a hero and didn't deserve to go down like that または at all in my opinion.
I'm actually going to blow your minds and say: i kinda thought the charming s were okay this half. I hated them in season 2 and especially the Neverland arc of S3 but they were alright または at least not shown enough to be to much of a nuisance. I like that David is actually getting some edges to him and has deep dark secrets. 雌豚, 種まき, 種をまく was finally talking with Regina and seemed like her quirky season 1 self. In fact i figured it out: i'm okay with bandit snow または her 魔法にかけられて forest persona usually i can't for the life of me stand Mary Margaret and that's who she is most of the time so when she acts like her old self i don't' mind her.
Zelena is someone who i must talk about. I felt.....underwhelmed によって her? she was ruthless i guess but compared to some other villain we've had she just kind of felt dull. I was psyched to see her and though Rebecca Mader is a great actress and i did like her at times i just didn't care for the character usually feeling もっと見る annoyed with her than anything.
I liked Glinda and thought she was a interesting dark take on the character. I hope we get to see her and know もっと見る about her past because form what i got: she was once dark but became good and wanted to help Zelena because she learned from experience. Also Dorothy?ppfft unimportant and honestly just thrown in because they kind of had to. Wish there could have been some cool story there. Again "If your not in the main cast あなた don't matter" is kinda the shows モットー now lol.
The weird thing about Henry is i liked his cursed personality better than his charming adoring normal one. I feel like he's a mix between them now and was overjoyed when Regina broke the curse. The fact that so many people were angry with her doing it had me pissed.
So that Rumple killing Zelena for orchestrating Neal's death moment that everyone wants me to get to and and was waiting for me to shut up about S3 A so i could. Well here: i didn't like it. I understand it because i can't imagine having your son killed and the person who basically murdered him walk away but that's the thing she wasn't getting off Scott free: she was in jail for crying out loud! If he could be 与えられた a 秒 chance than just leave her be because he can't decide who gets one または not. I feel like Regina did brush him aside though but was trying to be as unbiased as possible towards letting Zelena live. The real tragedy to me though is that Rumple lied to Belle on his wedding vows about not using the dagger and being a good person that was a bit sickening. I know Rumple didn't kill an innocent person and had every right o hate her but after everything he's done and been through why the regression? I just don't know anymore lol. I don't hate him he's done way worse to innocents and i still loved him but it's gonna take something to bring the character around for me.
The finale (A.K.A. the thing あなた all were just waiting for me to freaking get to!)
Let me start out によって saying i loved Emma in this episode if あなた hate that well than sue me.The fact that was finally saw her as a young teen was what i've been waiting for and the types of flashbacks we should be seeing もっと見る of. I loved the episode and Emma specifically in it because the entire point was her finding out where she belonged. She didn't look in the book and see her family but story book characters and after a journey of having to help them fall in 愛 again she knew who they were and that they were truly family. Hopefully she starts calling them mom and dad soon i need that. Captain 白鳥, スワン has never been もっと見る fabulous to me than in the finale they are a great duo in my opinion and Emma is finally comfortable and being buddy buddy with him. Also him being jealous of himself was hysterical some great lines were during that part "Why do あなた keep changing vests?" "The rolly joger" "I think we both know i'm his type" also not in that scene but Rumple's "What they heel am i doing in here" is probably one of the funniest moments in the show. period.
I'm also going to blow your minds again with these unpopular opinions:
- Emma and completely right in wanting to help Marian out she shouldn't have been left to be executed she had no idea what would happen.
- Snow rocked this episode the awesome feisty bandit i wish we had もっと見る of.
- Evil クイーン Regina made my stomach turn a little, I know Regina's slaughtered innocents in the past it's just after loving her this season and all the development she's gone through seeing her this way again made me feel a bit uneasy for liking her so much as a person now. Maybe it's the show's way of reminding us how much she's grown? idk.
Backtracking form my unpopular opinions i will go to my inner outlaw クイーン fangirl and say i am upset for Regina. Ye's it's karma and is probably deserved but there's something about Regina that gets あなた in her corner and my face fell when Robin 発言しました it was Marian even though i called it the 秒 she came onscreen. I don't know where they'll go with this but i think OQ is down but not out. I want Robin and Regina to talk about her past and not ignore it like they have been it can only make them stronger if they know each other's full pasts. I think if he can forgive her for killing Marian in another timeline (didn't he say she died during childbirth? are they going to address that または will it just be a weird plot hole?) than they are honestly true loves. I also don't want Marian to die like most people do that's ridiculous but it will probably happen and i won't care to much (except for Roland he needs his mom).
I don't think Regina will go dark again i just don't i have もっと見る faith in her than that.
Now for that Rumbelle wedding. Well it was cute and i loved Belle's speech about how "Sometimes the bets cup is chipped". The fact that it was a two person audience was a little odd but a big to- do really isn't Rumple's style i guess. The only downside: RUMPLE LIED WHEN HE FREAKING PROPOSED TO HER!!! okay now now done *inhales in and out* on anther romantic note CS has finally set sail with Hooks other 愛 the Jolly Roger being sacrificed for her (Ye he gave up his precious ship so he was a one women man...now the floor and him need to have a talk about there affair XD) 全体, 全体的です cute scene loved the キッス but the dance was the best part seriously.
And now here we have our big reveal: Elsa's coming. I honestly thought it was Jadis form Narnia until the blue came and i realized that's Elsas's thing. So many theories have been made and i myself have made so but this 記事 is getting way to long so basically i think Rumple captured her and now she wants revenge. Is she a true villain または will it really be someone else and we just don't know it? what does she want? will she see herself on tv because the movie came out last freaking free? idk! but i am excited and Elsa is tied with ムーラン as my お気に入り ディズニー princess and the later hasn't been on since S3 A so they better get Elsa right! Seriously i will be mad if they mess the character up.
Well this was long and i'm sure you've all either stopped 読書 または wondered how i took all this time out to type this but i wanted to. I'm very excited and eager for season 4. Honestly let's hope we get some cool plot points, great character interaction and actually well developed focused on new characters. This season has a been a blast to spend with あなた guys and honestly あなた make it もっと見る enjoyable! I hope あなた found this 記事 somewhat good and continue to read my reflections during season 4. Until September than it's official: Once Upon a time goodbye for the summer.
Our unspeakably wicked and surprisingly entertaining villain Peter Pan
Zelena sure does know how to make an entrance....
Sister cat fight!
There adorable in the finale i don't care what you say!
