KingOfHearts August 30, 2016 Share August 30, 2016 (edited) Notes from my rewatch. * I talked about the Charming/Arthur bromance in other threads, so I won't go into it. But the scene of those two walking in the woods and discovering their common interests still felt silly. "Oh you had a humble background? Omg, me too! Your wife is kind but has a tough side? Omg, same!" It was like the writers were trying to get the audience to see these amazing parallels. Subtle as a freight train. * Arthur kept an eternally lit torch in a closed box with other precious valuables? The heck? * Charming just flat out mentioned the Guinevere/Lancelot affair in common conversation with Arthur when he barely knew him. It came off as inconsiderate and forced. Who says, "So I hear your wife was sleeping with someone else"? * Arthur: "Lancelot and Guinevere weren't the only ones to blame for what happened to them. I was a difficult man to live with, but I made a conscious decision to fix things." I see what you did there. * Belle mentioned she needed an object Rumple touched before becoming the Dark One in order to perform a healing spell. Whatever happened to Bae's shawl? I'm sure it's explained, but my memory is fuzzy on that. * LOL. I had just caught that the silver cup was from Doc's birthday party and said "Doctoberfest" on it. * Arthur driving a truck in a car/horse chase? Quick learner, I guess? * Something I noticed is that sometimes characters are too good at concealing their true natures. Emma and Arthur both offered quite a bit of elaborate bravado to keep others off the trail. Another example would be Zelena as Marian. It starts to sound like the writers simply lying to the audience. * Robin said he's a "former thief". When did that happen? We had just saw him steal the Elixir of the Wounded Heart in 4B. Also, it appeared Robin had plenty of free time to spend at Granny's. I wonder why he didn't use that precious time to be with his son. Spoiler * There's all this talk about building a new Camelot in Storybrooke, but it goes nowhere. Arthur is nothing but fodder by the end of 5A. * The Hook/Emma date was so freaking sad. Emma was so desperate to hide the fact that Hook was a Dark One while also attempting to keep their relationship going. There are so many elements incorporated into one scene. The "I loved you" is heartbreaking and make Emma's situation even more depressing. Edited August 30, 2016 by KingOfHearts 4 Link to comment
