Just so they finish up in May Sweeps instead of April. There's only 4 episodes left.

This is why networks need to do 1 of 3 things:

1. Do 12 episode seasons straight through
2. Order more episodes so less breaks
3. Go the ABCFamily route and air the first half of the season, take 3 months off, air the rest of the season and see ya in 3 months again.

Ratings would probably improve for shows if we didnt have to constantly wait.

That's why I'm reasonably intrigued by what's been said about how they may air the spinoff. IGN made it sound as though it would be Fall batch of episodes - 13 episode season of the spinoff - Spring batch of episodes. The interruptions would seem less abrasive if they kept it all in the family.

Yeah, this whole second half of the season since snow and Emma got back from the enchanted forest has come off as really silly, with the exception of any of the mister gold/ rumplestiltskin stuff.

Its already been said but Ill repeat it. That isn't an ordinary taser. The taser thing also only knocks them out. According to august, the girl and her grandmother did something to the dragon after he was knocked out. The same with Pinocchio.

And really who cares about the music? It was cheesy and a heavy handed way of representing something, but if your issue is the cheese then what show have you been watching? This show is bursting with cheese and has been from the beginning.

.... I don't really get why people are up in arms about the Joan jett music. She went off into the woods to do a little soul searching shot some arrows and eventually found what she needed by talking with pinochio who was going through similar experiences of wanting redemption.

She wasn't cured by episodes end...But on the path of recovery

I'm happy with this introduction of Tamara, we desperately need a new antagonist for this show other than Regina and Rumple, plus it's great that the antagonist is a human and not another fairytale characters. Interesting way to go. We know back when they were casting her she has an option to return for Season 3, maybe she's get a hold of some magic as some point. Would be fun to see.

Also, was I not the only one that picked up on the fact that Neal told Emma that Tamara didn't find Hook in the storage room at his apartment building? How much you want to bet she let him out and brought him back to Storybrooke without anyone knowing?

I was so unimpressed with this episode. It screamed laziness to me.

Somehow a tazer killed someone made out of wood? Pretty sure wood doesn't conduct electricity. And how fortunate they bought him back as a little boy who didn't remember anything! Shockingly bad and lazy. And Tamara and Owen?!

Rubbish.

No idea where the season finale is going to go, because I can't see how Tamara is a threat to anyone. She might be magical I spose, but the idea that Regina and Cora, 2 of the most powerful queens/witches, couldn't beat Snow and Charming (who lets be honest, have no power), but a random human pair can?!

If the final run and finale don't impress me, I'm out I think.

The string of complaints is a bit much, but I have to agree, this last episode was... off. I felt like the resolution to August's story was just kind of rushed and sloppy, and depending on where they're going with Tamara, I think the way she was introduced to the storyline is going to seem a bit poorly done in hindsight. Just not one of the show's better episodes.

Ausiello: Not any time soon, so everyone there in Storybrooke — both magical and “Muggle” — had better watch their backs. Because make no mistake, Tamara isn’t pulling off her dirty work using any ol’ $99 stun gun. “We did not just kill a magical creature with an off-the-shelf Taser,” series cocreator Adam Horowitz affirms. “The Taser isn’t what it seems at first, and we get into that soon.”

It should have been done over two episodes.

I came up with a similar idea the other day. Obviously, the grandmother is important to Tamara's past, and that's the only other woman of color we've really seen in the past. I wonder if Rumple didn't so much as kill her as send her to this world somehow, without her powers. She grew bitter, or told Tamara how she had her power stolen from her, so Tamara made it her mission to somehow track down magic to somehow avenge her.

I thought last weeks was better. Sorry , but I wasn't feeling this week's , though it was nice to see Eion Bailey again and I am interested in finding out what Regina did /or didn't do to Owen's dad. Its good to have Regina the bada** back again.

Yeah, but they really like to build anticipation, only to be in some really disappointing results. Biggest one was what August showed Neal in his box. That is the corniest cop out I have seen.

I don't think it's really a cop out. I love how this show is structured so closely to Lost yet it doesn't delay the mysteries so long which keeps the story fresh IMO
