Hook found me. Ready, Swan?

Hi, Christine here. Welcome to my tiny piece of virtual space in the vast Internet universe. Sharing my love of books, travel photos, and some other favorite things.

Currently adore OUAT and amazed weekly on the the creative, imaginative depth of the storytelling in this series.

This is NOT a spoiler-free blog and like to share so feel free to spill!

.gifs are not mine cause basically I'm a luddite.

My other TV queue includes NCIS:LA, Suits, The Americans.

This is just nuts!

I wish people would stop trying to make the kisses into some sort of competition. I literally have never seen anyone sitting around going “well Snowing was hotter!” “no Rumbelle was hotter!”

WHY. DOES. CS. AND. OQ. HAVE. TO. BE. A. COMPETITION? 

THIS!!

2 PHYSICAL CONTACTS IN ONE EPISODE FOR OUR BABIES WHO HAVE WALLS SO HIGH AND NOW THEY’RE STARTING TO LET THEM DOWN AND BECOME FAMILIAR WITH EACH OTHER!!!

OUR DEATH IS NEAR.

Accurate!

celticmoonbeams:

3x18 is a Cora-centric epsiode.

That means that it’s going to be focusing heavily on Regina, Snow, Zelena and, of course, Cora.

We’re not, repeat, NOT going to get much CS this episode.

Maybe just a couple of small scenes.

But those will be showing us development between them.

Specifically…

Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis at Wonder Con 2014 interview and teases final few episodes and finale.

"Season finale wraps up all the mysteries as a season and a season as a whole. hope it does it in a very surprising way and very surprising place." "We wrote it as a two hour movie and not two episodes put together in one night. It’s something the fans has always wanted, but didn’t realize it. We think everyone will be surprised by where we take you."
***psst…I think he means Emma makes a decision.***

Josh Dallas interview at Wonder Con 2014 discusses Charming, Snow, Emma and season finale expectations and ‘reset’ at the end of the year.

Why do you think that Hook fessing up about the curse is the right thing to do? I'm still on the fence about that one, for some reason i don't think it's as easy as when he had to choose whether or not to reveal that Neal is still alive to the charmings!

It’s absolutely as easy, if not easier.

Emma’s got an issue with lies, liars, and people who generally don’t reveal who they truly are to her. Hook knows that because she told him as much (“As usual, he wasn’t who he said he was”). The two things Hook cares most about in his life right now are Emma and Henry. This secret he’s keeping puts both of them in danger, and the witch made sure to tell him that. If he didn’t believe she was dangerous before (since they actually don’t know that she was responsible for killing Neal, essentially), after seeing what her plan is and the fact that all the pieces are falling into place (as he will in this episode)…he’ll believe she’ll make good on her word to harm everyone around Emma if he doesn’t do what she asked him to do.

  • 'A Curious Thing' (3.19) will be all about the Charming's baby. We'll also find out about who exactly cast the curse. “That's a pretty big reveal!”
  • As for Henry’s memories, they will be sorted one way or another by the end of the season.
  • As for Neal, he remains in our hearts, but will also be seen in flashbacks.

the only thing i want to point out/talk about the spoilers

is emma sending hook hot chocolate is a serious gesture.

not just because he’s always been the one to offer her a drink as a way to cheer her up,…

Okay. I felt like the kid in the back seat listening to the parents say the same thing - differently. :)

When Ariel appealed to Hook’s understanding of true love, I wanted to scream at her that this wasn’t the right negotiating path; Hook just lost the woman he’d hoped could be his true love, and he sees no value in that concept anymore.

Being a hero—believing in love—has never led to anything good for him. Being a pirate is a well-worn path for him; it’s how he deals with the emptiness that has always come from losing love (Liam, Milah, and now Emma). The Jolly Roger is his, and he has nothing else. Emma was his light after 300 years of darkness, and without her, the darkness took hold again.

Everybody lost the day Emma and Henry were separated from them—heroes, villains, and pirates alike. So for Hook, the hero’s path wasn’t one of value anymore. He chose the only path he still thought he understood: the pirate’s path. - (x)
