    Im not sure it's a joke.. i mean.. it's not like Once doesn't constantly repeat the same story like beating a dead horse.. i mean.. i feel like there were 3 "magical waking kisses" in this episode alone....

    One thing I'm really excited about with a mostly new cast of regulars, and with the presumably S1-type curse concept, is the possible return of the surprise/mystery character that we haven't seen in a long while. The way they approached Graham/August/Whale's identities. Everything in recent seasons has been very "[INSERT CHARACTER HERE] IS COMING!" Elsa is coming! Oh, we're going to the Underworld? Well that must mean Hades is coming! etc...

    I think having someone you can't immediately get a read on will be fun.

    Are there any fairy tale characters left to be surprised at? Maybe Goldilocks and the Three Bears?

    I'm shocked the show hasn't done Mowgli yet. Provided that the plot of his story unfolded parallel to Snow/Charming/etc. (and I see no reason to think it wouldn't), I could see him being someone Henry became friends with along the way to adulthood and think Jesse Rath would be a solid pick for the character.

    I was being a bit hyperbolic but some of what you listed were/are already on the show in some other incarnation like Moby Dick (he's a doctor I think) and some of them are too new or too difficult to adapt to the storyline without really stretching the already thin credibility the series has.

    Gotta love SwanQueen fans. "The only way this show will give us SwanQueen is to make them a heterosexual couple wtfsmh *eyeroll emoji**eyeroll emoji**eyeroll emoji*"

    In what way are Henry (who we've gotten, like 60 seconds of as an adult) and his wife (who we haven't even MET!) SwanQueen? Other than through the filter of that ship's self-centeredness?

    You would think this is the weirdest you heard from them in 6 seasons...but it isnt.
    The mind of a Swanqueen fan is far far away.
    I would have thought after 6 seasons and after the show for the very last time made crystal clear that swanqueen never was and never will be a thing...they would be able to let go.

    A very small step in the right direction in terms of making the show more diverse.

    There's nothing funnier to me than social media folks seeing an actress who looks barely any younger than Andrew J. West and thinking "Emma and Hook's daughter!"

    Yeah, because I'm totally sure they got pregnant and squirted out a 14 year old at some point. :o

    Hey I wonder what thoughts Tumblr has about this episode title. I mean, it's just a title, they can't be THAT--
    *opens up box of nonstop screaming over a variety of perceived slights*
    lol okay, never mind.

    Pretty much the same as with any show that manages to attract a rabid shipper following (essentially: exhausting). And now with the added perk of certain actors exiting, so conclusions are being jumped to right and left ("They're breaking Captain Swan up!" "They're killing Emma!" etc.) So... double exhausting.

    Tumblr is a great resource for set pics, but it also bombards you with psychopaths.

    Now I'm sort of getting a better idea where they're going with this. This could be a meta-commentary on how these stories get reinvented and retold time after time. And where Henry, the Author, is concerned it makes some sense that there's more than one of everything. Our Snow White/Prince Charming/Evil Queen, by this show's timeline, their story would've gone down in the late 70s/early 80s, and there was an author to tell that story. But that doesn't account for Walt Disney, also an author, making a Snow White film in 1937, or for there being a fairy tale originating in the 1800s.

    I feel like this, coupled with Henry being the protagonist now, means we'll get a deeper dive into the Author mythology and I'm all in. Plus focus on characters who were just guests before this. Different iterations, but still.
