Have you been waiting like me for the return of Once Upon A Time? Oh yeah, I wanna go to Oz or have Oz come to Storybrooke. I’m fine with either and you know evil witches have all the best lines!
Also, Good Morning America wheedled it out of the cast, that Ginnifer Goodwin’s pregnancy (yes, Goodwin is pregnant with Prince Charming’s… oops I mean Josh Dallas’s baby) and they are writing it into the show plot. Omigosh how cute, real life couple on and off-screen get to celebrate the pregnancy in both their realities.
Thank ye old gods! The creators promise we will not have to wait until the end of the season to see Emma Snow get her memories back. Yet, even with her memories back she might not recognize all the faces in Storybrooke because the town is changing while also still being affected by Henry’s story book.
Which might explain how there was supposed to be an elaborate story for the huntsman. Too bad Jamie Dornan was tied up with Fifty Shades of Grey. Although, rumor has it, he will try to fit OUaT into his future schedule, because producers and creators haven’t given up on having him back for the show.
Emma and Neal’s epic love story gets put on hold for now too. Neal and Belle will take center stage on their quest to find Rumple, and it will be them together growing and figuring out things plus backstory on Belle in the Beauty & the Beast flashbacks. Neal apparently will follow a similar path as did Rumple and eventually have to choose a path. Huh? Does Neal have magic. Don’t know and they’re not telling. Nor are they spilling on Rumple’s fate although they have said by the midseason finale we will get answers.
As for the yellow brick road… oh yeah… it will be there along with some very familiar Oz characters, although the Wicked Witch, named Zelena will have definite reasons, and even good enough to have Snow White take her side for awhile.
“You can pretty much guess who’s among those new faces since she also happens to be the culprit behind this new curse. Known as Zelena in the world of Once, Mader’s witch in Storybrooke seems anything but wicked. After all, she gets in Snow White’s (Ginnifer Goodwin) good graces, but it won’t be long before we see the real side of her. “She’s pretty wicked when she is the Wicked Witch,” Edward Kitsis says. “She does some things that are distasteful, but she does it with style.”
Kitsis had a lot more to say actually about Zelena, the Wicked Witch, so continue reading here for more detailed spoilers. And don’t forget Once Upon A Time returns to ABC on Sunday (THIS SUNDAY, March 9th) at 8/7c.
Yay for new Elementary! This show provides me with all those silly trivia details under science and history. Kind of fun unless you’re talking severed ears. I did not realize that ears were like fingerprints in that no two are alike. Uhm… guess I should be glad of that considering why I now know it thanks to Elementary.
Also, how lovely does Watson look in this episode? I do believe we will be seeing more of Lestrade too. From what I heard, he overstays his welcome at the brownstone even though he’s not mentioned in the video and only shows up in one of the photo promos.
Earlier today, Fangirlish gave you a heads up on a tweet coming from Dylan O’Brien about a Maze Runner Trailer coming in two weeks and while we still cannot verify if it is only rumor and not fact; we have a new Maze Runner still for you that features Dylan’s Thomas pretty prominently as a distraction.
Also, hello Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Newt. Looking mighty adorable yourself.
So what do we think?! How awesome would it be to see the Maze Runner trailer before watching Divergent on the big screen. I am all for this happening. Any movie executives reading this?! Make it happen, please and Gladers would be eternally grateful.
Angelina Jolie is gorgeous, but as Maleficent… she is magnificent! Never back in the day, as pre-teen watching Sleeping Beauty, wondering and wishing I had more backstory on Maleficent and why she does what she does, did I ever think they could find someone who pulls off her majestic villainous beauty. However, Jolie is so perfectly cast and I cannot stop marveling at how perfect.
And she, like me, truly understands fans desire to hear Maleficent’s side of the story.
“The exercise wasn’t how can we have fun with a villain?” Jolie says. “It was: What turns people evil and vile and aggressive and cruel? What could have possibly happened to her?” (x)
If that doesn’t convince you that this film will be awesome, check out the most amazing trailer ever!
I mean really… someone with all that power and hatred – just what set her off? And how she allows one true love’s kiss break the spell. There’s so much more there that the animated film never explored. And yes, I want the truth. Seriously, I can handle it.
Hannibal Season Premiere was awesome and I had the majority of my recap written up and lost it. Argh… so tomorrow, I shall have it for you all, but tonight… I need to take a moment to regroup before trying to type it up again. Sorry Fannibals!
However, have a sneak peek at next week:
Be warned that some of this may seem spoilerish. It’s all speculative coming from my own thoughts after watching the promo above. However, if you do not wish to think about the names of characters or project what might happen week to week, you probably should avoid reading this bit of the promo post.
This episode titled Sakizuki has Hannibal Lecter again called in for consulting in place of Will Graham, who is yeah… going to trial. I am curious how they are allowed to let Hannibal come in considering how close he was to Will and that he isn’t really a criminologist, is he? Although who cares about that… let me tell you how fearful I am for Hettienne Park’s Beverly Katz. Is her name foreshadowing? Curiosity killed the Cat? Also, how menacing is Gillian Anderson’s Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier even though she obviously knows why Will is innocent? And name… again… is her name foreshadowing as well? Daphne Du Maurier was a favorite of Alfred Hitchcock’s, considered the Mistress of Suspense and also, very familiar and well-known to the brightest actors of her time. Hmmm… ? Makes you think?
