So I got my mom hooked on Once Upon a Time, and she’s been catching up on the first two seasons on Netflix. Today she was watching an episode, and she’s talking to me about it. Suddenly, she asks, pointing to the screen when Henry is on, “Hey, is this still the same kid in season three?”
Me *trying not to laugh*: “Um, yeah. Why wouldn’t it be?”
Mom: “I don’t know. Sometimes they change.”
Me: “No.” *pause* “But try to remember that you asked me that.”
Okay, so I really didn’t like the Blue Fairy, but I’m a fan of Keegan Connor Tracy. Is it weird that Jake/Diane is still one of my top ships? (Internet hugs if you know what show I’m referring to without my having to say.)
I hope she left because she has another job lined up somewhere.
this is now a mandatory reblog for Monday
It really feels like he’s channeling Two in this scene. “Oh, you’ve decorated… I don’t like it.” It was a happy little link to the previous anniversary specials.
In the original timeline, the Doctor watched Gallifrey burn. In the new timeline, the Doctor freezes it instead.
New headcanon. At some point, the Doctor meets Robert Frost, who takes a few poetic liberties with the events in question.
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
Guys! Guys! I noticed a thing!
In Queen Elizabeth’s letter to the Doctor, she writes:
"You will recall that you pledged yourself to the safety of my kingdom. In this capacity, I have appointed you as Curator of the Under Gallery, where deadly danger to England is locked away.”
Okay, so I’m sure most of us immediately recognized the references of the police officer walking past the I.M. Foreman sign and the Coal Hill School in regards to the first ever episode of Doctor Who (why is the scrap yard sign so close to the school?). But it wasn’t until my second viewing that I was able to take a closer look at the school sign. We see two people’s names. The first one is Chairman of the Governors: I. Chesterton. (*squee*) In case you don’t know, Ian Chesterton (played by William Russell) was one of the first companions and a teacher at the Coal Hill School when he first met the Doctor. I didn’t recognize the second name, though, but figured it must be a reference as well. Headmaster: W. Coburn. Sure enough, there is a Wendy Coburn also a member of the Whoniverse and linked to the same school.
I won in 7:51 seconds. I am the master! No… wait… I mean, well, you know.
Nice swordplay, Castle. Inara would be proud.
Miscellaneous Thoughts on OUaT S03e05: Good Form
1) Magic stream of water that serves as the life force to a mysterious island makes more sense here than it did in Lost.
2) Hook said “As you wish” to Emma. I think we all know what that means.
3) So Hook stole Bae’s mom and now the mother of his child…
4) Rumplestiltskin is totally in the other cage, right? I mean, we didn’t see him this entire episode, and we last left him in a vulnerable situation.
5) Emma said “our son” to Regina while referring to Henry. That’s what I call progress.
Doctor Who reference on Castle!
