Discussion: A look back at 1.08 “Desperate Souls”

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.

Discussion: A look back at 1.07 “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter”

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”. :D

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:

Meta: Regina, Henry and Emma… and Mr Gold

Having rewatched episode 1.02, I’ve now been reminded of the part Mr Gold played in Henry’s adoption. Which makes my previous meta post about Regina, Henry and Emma kind of… irrelevant.

So things we know:

  • Henry was born in Phoenix, Arizona.
  • Henry was adopted by Regina when he was 3 weeks old.
  • Mr Gold was the one who found Henry for Regina. (This alludes that Mr Gold knows exactly who Emma and Henry are… and what that means for the curse.)
  • At the end of episode 1.02, Regina realises there’s more than just a coincidence that her adopted son is Emma’s biological son, and that Mr Gold had a hand in it.
  • Also at the end of ep 1.02, Mr Gold tells Regina “you think you know exactly who she (Emma) is”, inferring that Regina remembers everything pre-curse including the part to be played by the child of Snow and Charming.

Mr Gold also appears to remember the backstory with the curse and who he ‘really’ is… so my question is WHAT IS HIS ANGLE?

In the fairytale world, Rumplestiltskin was locked up and obviously not enjoying that. In the real world, Mr Gold has ‘comfort’ (per Rumplestiltskin’s request of the Evil Queen). WHY would he risk that by bringing in a direct link (baby Henry) to the only person who could defeat the Evil Queen (ie Snow and Charming’s child, aka Emma)? Isn’t it in his best interest to keep things as they are in the real world?

I’m curious even moreso because in the first episode (when Snow and Charming go to visit Rumplestiltskin in his cell) he says “The infant is our only hope.” The ‘our’ is the bit that really intrigues me. That and his “Get the child to safety.” The Mr Gold / Rumplestiltskin character really confuses the heck out of me. I simply can’t decide whether he’s good or bad… or does he live to create mischief and mayhem?

One last question… Mr Gold appears to be the kind of person who has a lot of connections and knows a lot more than he needs to (or should know). Emma told Regina in episode 1.01 that Henry’s father doesn’t even know he exists.

Does Mr Gold know who Henry’s biological father is?

Meta: Regina, Henry and Emma

I was just having a think back over the first episode that I rewatched last night. In particular about Regina, Henry and Emma and their circumstances.

The first question is DOES Regina love Henry? She says she does. As I noted in last night’s blog post though, Emma’s lying-spidey-sense may have been going off when Regina confirmed her love for Henry. Of course, considering Regina is Mayor and Henry is a 10-year-old boy she can’t appear to be indifferent or uncaring… but does she actually love the boy? Henry seems to think that she doesn’t.

My second question is… how on Earth did Henry come to be with Regina??

Let’s assume for a moment that Regina definitely does remember everything about the fairytale world and who she really is. If that’s the case, she would know that Snow and Charming’s baby (Emma) was predicted to be the ‘saviour’ of the fairytale world. This would also explain her pretty full-on “get lost!” vibes to Emma about leaving Henry and Storybrooke alone or Regina would destroy her.

We also know that Regina adopted Henry when he was three weeks old. How’s the coinkydink that the baby of the one person who could ruin Regina/the Evil Queen’s plans is the baby Regina adopts?

Did she know Henry’s parentage? Or was that just a fluke?

And if she DID know… WHY would she have chosen to adopt him, the child of the person prophesied to bring about her downfall? Was it all rolled in with taking away the happy endings?

Of course, this show is by the LOST writers. If there’s one thing that show taught me…

THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES.
