Anyway, rewatching this makes me understand more about why I put this at number one because with silly & contrived writing, awful dialogue, horrible CGI, boring characters & a jarring tone compared to the rest of the episodes, it's no surpise that this is considered one of the worst episodes of the show (well, my personal worst is different, but we don't need to go into that!)
Well, at least they chose somewhere with a 12 hour time difference to co-operate with the 8:15 in Storybrooke!
I get David wants to do something nice, but Emma's right that they need to stop throwing a pity party & let her accept what she's done!
OK, bringing your fiance to a place filled with magical fairytale characters definitely wasn't the brightest idea!
Interesting way to vent out your anger: doing archery while listening to Joan Jett!
God, the CGI makes him look so creepy!
EWW! Pretty extreme way of trying to prove your leg is wood!
Bit weird the Thai characters have American accents when speaking English...and rather convenient that he knows someone who can help with August's situation!
1) Kinda sad he wanted Emma & Neal back together 2) For once Mary Margaret's got a point he needs to stop feeling sorry for himself & 3) GOD, that CGI is still so creepy!
Very very awkward lunch...
OK, surely she'd think he was crazy talking about being from a world full of fairytales. Bless Neal for trying though!
Bit of a weird personality change being a clingy bitch when talking about Emma!
OK, pretty contrived that they've met & happen to be in Storybrooke at the same time!
Bit weird she thinks she recognises him despite not seeing him for 20 years!
'If I were you, I'd try the fish special. It's right up your alley! Blackened sole.' Could that potshot be any more obvious?!
Note to self: don't trust Mary Margaret with keeping secrets!
Well, he's very interesting given he's not from the Enchanted Forest & knew August was Pinocchio!
Pretty big sacrifice given the sentimental value of it!
Still very contrived that they know each other...
Why the hell would you leave a bundle of money out in the open when he would obviously steal it?!
Feeling guilty now, aren't ya August?
OK, I didn't need to see his creepy CGI eyes close-up!
What makes you think you can dominate someone's life while being in Storybrooke for about 5 minutes?! Oh yeah, and great, she's now acting like the most obvious villain on the planet!
Stop being so creepy, Regina! And pretty stupid excuse 'monthly juice cleanse' to hide the fact you haven't aged for several years!
Could she be any more out of character slapping him?! And don't used your blackened heart as an excuse!
So even after all of his development & self pity, he's still making the selfish choice?!
So she didn't have cancer & is really out of destroy magic? Pretty stupid!
Well, that was pretty easy!
Why doesn't anybody ever check the pulse?!
I've said it before & I'll say it again, WOOD DOESN'T CONDUCT ELECTRICITY!
God, the dialogue in this scene is awful!
How convenient Mother Superior was there the moment they needed her!
Seriously?! SERIOUSLY?! They've retconned August's story?!
Still want to know how he knew Neal was Baelfire...
So she set it all up with her & Neal...even more contrivances!
'Don't push me away.' Someone's starting to sound like Regina!
Well, that subplot was quickly resolved despite all the possibilities & implications!
God, this reveal was an utter con!
