(It was incredibly difficult to choose which gif to lead with, because there was an amazing Charming one. He won out because he’s new, but trust, the good Charming one is after the jump).
This makes four for four, in terms of Season 2 mirroring Season 1. In 1×04, we got introduced to a new character, one from a classic Disney film, whose mythology is radically changed/influenced by Rumple in this canon. Is that too general? I am making too much of a leap with these? I don’t know, to me it does feel similar. (Maybe that means we might finally get a Pin appearance next week, since 1×05 was Jiminy’s backstory?)
“The Crocodile” wasn’t particularly earth-shattering; in fact, it was pretty damn predictable (did anyone not already know that Killian was/would be Hook?). In review, I would say the more interesting parts had to do with Belle’s plot in Storybrooke.
Thankfully, we kept to just two time periods/locations for the majority of the episode, which makes things way less complicated, so no color-coding needed (I didn’t get any feedback on that in the last post, but please still let me know if it’s helpful or unnecessary, since I predict we’ll be going back to the triple-plot episodes in the future). But for now, to set sail for the recap! Avast, ahoy, and all that jazz!
