Australian viewers get to watch 1.08 “Desperate Souls” this week. Fantastic episode that provides us some background into the Rumplestiltskin character.
First thing, LOVE seeing the Rumplestiltskin character sitting there and spinning. Harkens back to the ‘traditional’ fairytale that Rumplestiltskin was able to spin gold from straw.
So weird seeing Robert Carlyle as non-magical Rumplestiltskin. Really shows the difference the makeup makes! And non-magical Rumplestiltskin is so very different, from the magical being. He’s sort of sad and pathetic, and cares so very much for his son.
Late to the party – as usual! – but here’s the recap/thoughts from last week’s ep that aired in Australia… “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter”.
Still consider this to be one of the best eps of the season. Great start to the episode. I do love the fact that even though Graham is three sheets to the wind, he can still hit what is essentially a bullseye. Also, love the “I never miss”.
I find it really hard to have any sort of sympathy for the Evil Queen when she is so deceitful towards Snow – even laughing about it with the Mirror behind Snow’s back.
So good seeing Graham in his flashback as The Huntsman. Regina’s reaction when Graham mentions the wolf is VERY telling. Great moment when Graham tells Regina it felt ‘like a memory’, not a dream.
Seriously though, seeing the wolf after just seeing it in his dream? Had to be doing his head in. :blink:

Deadline Hollywood: Meghan Ory Upped To Series Regular On ABC’s ‘Once Upon A Time’
Deadline Hollywood has exclusively reported that fan-favourite Meghan Ory has been made a series regular for Season 2 of Once Upon a Time!
The article reads:
EXCLUSIVE: We’ll be seeing a lot more of Ruby in the magic-themed second season of Once Upon A Time. Meghan Ory, who recurred as Ruby aka Red Riding Hood on the freshman season of the breakout ABC drama, has been upped to series regular for the upcoming second season. I hear the promotion was put in motion at the beginning of 2012 when Ory started fielding strong interest for pilots. It was triggered recently, following Once‘s second season renewal by ABC. Canadian-born Ory, Gersh and manager Russ Mortensen, ended up appearing in 17 of the 22 episodes of Once‘s first season.
Yay! I’m really excited about this as Ruby/Red was one of my favourite recurring characters. Looking forward to seeing a lot more of her in the next season!

One of the questions in this week’s Ask Ausiello article was about some of the events in the season 1 finale, with the response from Exec Producer Adam Horowitz.
As the OUAT fandom is so international, I’ll put the question and response behind the cut to save spoiling people who haven’t seen the finale yet. There are also allusions to season 2 but no concrete spoilers. They do love to tease us!!
The cast and crew behind Once Upon a Time have created (or reinvented) a stack of fantastic characters, both main and recurring.
