Tiny- Does anyone else think this episode was a bit of a bore for this show? After that long hiatus, we wanted an episode where something big happens. Not "big" literally, because then we'd be satisfied with our giant friend coming to Storybrooke. Come on, show. As far as Emma/Henry/Gold go, the show only got them on a plane. We're pretty annoyed that they had to take Henry along too. That kid annoys when we see him in large doses.
Anton the giant (played again by Hurley from LOST, yayy!) is taken to Storybrooke by Cora to wreak some havoc and recognizes David as the one who killed his family and tricked him. We were astounded that it took David more than a second to chalk it up to "evil twin brother" problems. But then again, we were also surprised to see seven men with pickaxes hacking into the ground bury one tiny bean. Maybe it has to be buried really deep? Yeah, we're gonna think that.
The coolest thing about this story was the Jack was a woman, and she was well-cast too. She seemed tough. Hopefully she isn't dead, because we'd like to see her again. We love gender bends, like in Elementary. In fact, we would love to see a show write all its parts and then do "gender blind casting," like Grey's Anatomy did with the races of its characters.
TV has a huge hand in perpetuating gender stereotypes, and it would lead to much more interesting characters if gender bends were the norm. We'd like to see a network accept a script and then say, "Now, switch everyone's gender to the opposite." Muah haha.
We know we were supposed to feel bad for Anton, and mentally we did, but it didn't exactly pull our heartstrings. We felt way worse for the more developed, anxiety-ridden Rumple in this episode. He's flying on "Ajira Airlines," after all, and you know how that turned out in the last show...Regina really is off the straight-and-narrow, unless that was Cora baiting the giant, which you never can tell, can you?
The Belle stuff is progressing at a snail's pace, and it's a little dumb that she freaks out every two seconds. If we had amnesia, we would be eager to listen to every visitor coming by. We guess that since she feels lied to, that's one reason she doesn't want to hear it. Why are they hiding the magic from her? She lives in the town and isn't going anywhere. They should clue her in. She's going to find out anyway. She could help her fellow car-driving patient forget about it.
