My initial thoughts and comments after the jump (spoilers if you haven’t yet seen the episode). Please chime in with your comments.
So August was Pinocchio after all. I would have rather he had turned out to be Bae or Henry’s father, but I can live with him being Pinocchio. And maybe — I say, clinging onto my highly improbable theory — he still could be Henry’s father! Though Henry’s father is probably (the real) Bae.
Question: Why won’t August tell his father who he really is? I understand that he is ashamed of deserting Emma as a child, but Geppetto said he could forgive a son of his who was trying to make amends.
Regina coming on to David was pretty funny. If she still had her magic powers, I think she would have turned him into a frog on the spot after he said no. Question: Why do you think she was trying to seduce him? Is it because she really needs a new lover after killing off her old one? Or is she trying to drive a new, deeper wedge between David and Mary Margaret, now that Katherine is not standing between them? Or is it both?
How far do you think Emma is going to get on her way out of town?
I think Emma now probably does believe, on some level, that what August and Henry’s book say are true — but she just can’t deal with the responsibility of being the savior. Do you think she will come around some time this season (not much time left — only two more episodes)?
You think David will tell Mary M that Regina tried to seduce him?
